If there’s one thing 2010 me would find hard to believe, it’s gotta be:
You pay $20 a month to have a ~curated box of treats and toys delivered for your dog.
Shasta – my five year old pit mix, pictured to your left – lives and dies by her BarkBox. She is 100% food and treat driven (she does ANYTHING for peanut butter), and starts shaking her head with excitement the second she sees that familiar cardboard box arriving in the mail.
I think my favorite thing about BarkBox is that it’s run by GOOD PEOPLE.
In five years, Shasta has been uninterested in about three treat choices – max – and every single time, BarkBox Customer Support has gone out of their way to send something new, or provide a coupon to their BarkShop.
For someone who appreciates good service (me, not so much the dog), that is some goooood service.
Shasta isn’t much of a chewer (she’s a pump-or-carry kinda gal), but she will pick a seam every now and then. For the most part, BarkBox toys – especially Bark Co. brand – hold up to those tiny crooked teeth.
As a human who likes colorful and cute things, I always look forward to what’s in the box, too.
Over the last few months, Shasta has received: an abominable snowman (fav), a fish taco, a newspaper, two bundles of flowers, a milk carton, a yeti (also fav – she loves that fluffy fur), a tiny star… the list – literally – goes on and on.
