#FurFriday @BarkBox {Island Paradise}

#FurFriday

 

This month’s BarkBox theme was Island Paradise and was all about pirates and treasures. Let’s get right to it.

{BarkMade Message In Bottle}

{BarkMade Message In Bottle}

This squeaker toy is super loud and Chino has decided to squeak it every time I am on a phone call. Thank you BarkBox! It is fitting to the theme of the box and is made with non-toxic materials which is a plus!

{Etta Says! - Bison Chew}

{Etta Says! – Bison Chew}

This is a pawesome treat in my books, single protein, no artificial fillers or preservatives. Chino devours these in seconds and they don’t upset his sensitive tummy. We love getting these in the boxes!

{Yeti Corp-Golden Nugget}

{Yeti Corp-Golden Nugget}

 We have yet to try these but I am pretty excited for them. Made with yak & cow milk this chew is something I have given Chino before a big long piece that he chews on for a long time. These however are different because you microwave or boil them! I think this may make it softer and chewier? I am saving these for a special day.

{Grandma Bowser's - Mai Tai Mango Biscuits}

{Grandma Bowser’s – Mai Tai Mango Biscuits}

 Mai Tai Mango Biscuits!? Um these sound delicious and super tropical. These also have no preservatives or artificial flavours. Very fitting for a day at the beach!

{SafeMade - Pineapple}

{SafeMade – Pineapple}

This was the favourite! Chino has taken this with him everywhere and I love that It is easy to wipe down and wash. The squeakers keep him entertained.

BarkBox Review

DSC_2721

(Missing the Jester Ball)

This month’s BarkBox is themed ‘Mardi Gras’ and it definitely steps up to the plate as one. With festive toys and yummy tasteful treats, it’s a mini party in a box!

An edible cigar shaped treat, jester themed toy and alligator as a treat ingredient!? Yup, that’s what’s in this months box. Let’s review them shall we?

DSC_2663

PetSafe Catfish Po’Boy with Chicken

PetSafe provides the freshest treat you can possibly get in a package. These treats are so fresh that it’s recommended to put it in a air-tight bag, refrigerate and be consumed within 3 days of opening it. To go with the Mardi Gras theme they gave us Catfish & Chicken flavoured ‘cuts’. I already know Diesel is going to love this so these are being saved for a weekend I go away or when he acts super duper cute one day. (You all know what i’m talking about!)

DSC_2678 (1)

Harry Barker – Mardi Gras Crinkle Mask

It wouldn’t be a Mardi Gras party without masks! Made exclusively for the BarkBox pupscribers, Harry Barker made a crinkly, squeaking, toy mask! Harry Barker has a simple but modern design ranging from beds, leashes, collars and toys. All made with earth friendly fabrics. Check them out here.

DSC_2667

Aussie Naturals – Salmon Quarter Cigar

I told ya there would be an edible cigar! ;) This is one cigar that’s not bad for you (too bad it’s for the pups). It has no additives or preservatives and because it’s salmon it’s a natural source of Omega 3 & 6!

DSC_2655

Delca – Jester Ball

I’m loving the festive colours, this Jester Ball is what this box needed! This little squeaker is already Diesel’s favourite toy… of the month. He wouldn’t let go of it!!

DSC_2703

‘I need to take a picture of it for the review!’ Diesel – “Too BAD!”

I also swear that Henrik the Elf (from our December BarkBox) was not purposely placed there. He was playing with him before he got a hold of the Jester Ball!

DSC_2670

Think!Dog – Crawfish Jerky

Now, the last item from the box. I was really interested by this combination of treat ingredients. Craw fish… and alligator! Say whaaaaat?? Alligator!? 

I immediately opened it up so Diesel could have a try. And he loved it. I wasn’t surprised because it even smells yummy! (I mean, if I were a dog… I’d totally eat it, but I’m not.)

These treats are also wheat, corn and soy free. 4 paws up to this awesome treat!

#FurFriday {@Barkbox – Ice Age Review} @BuddysKitchenCA @ABOGear @ThinkDogbyDelca

#FurFriday

BarkBox ReviewDSC_2432

The first BarkBox of the year, and its a good one folks. The treats are definitely mouth waterers and the toys are good. This month’s box is themed ‘Ice Age’. Living in Canada and with the below 0 temperatures we’ve been having, I think it fits right in! Let’s get started shall we?

DSC_2449

Buddy’s Kitchen – Off-Leash Twigs

 Off-Leash is always a win with me. All natural ingredients, grain, wheat, corn, soy AND gluten free. To top it all off, it’s Canadian made! Woo Canada!

These dental chews are not only going to de-stink-a-fy your pups breath but it also gives them a source of protein (Turkey) and some tummy pleasers (Pumpkin)! 

DSC_2439

Heartland Premium – Rib

 Here’s another one for your pup to chew on. A delicious rib chew, mmm.

This is made from an all American, USDA approved beef. These are awesome to give your dog when your busy or they are very well deserving of it. It keeps them busy and happy!

DSC_2461

BarkBox – BarkMade Wooly Mammoth

Well, this is themed the Ice Age, and what better way to show it then a Wooly Mammoth toy!? Made by BarkBox, this soft plush has a squeaker. It got Diesel’s attention the moment I grabbed it out of the box.barkboxcollage

See?

If you look really closely to the Mammoth pic, you might be able to see some drool. Diesel got his paws on it before I could get a pic of it! So you can say it’s definitely play (or chew) approved by him.

DSC_2446

Aussie – Salmon Skin Training Treat Nibbles

These may be small treats but they are perfect for training or to take on the go! 100% American salmon skin, no additives or preservatives! They’re natural source of Omega 3 & 6. It helps promote healthy skin and a shiny coat!

DSC_2450

Delca Corp – Adorable Snowman

But first, let me take a selfie! (Soooooo 2014. And I should let it stay there.)

Can I just say that I LOVE this toy!? It reminds me of my childhood. Watching the old Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and instead of the abominable snowman, it’s adorable!! 

I have put this toy on a shelf where Diesel can’t get to it. I don’t want him to destroy it :(. I can say that BarkBox packs the coolest toys. I have also kept the hedgehog (From the Bone-Appetit box) away from Diesel because of how cute it was. It currently sits on my kitchen windowsill.

#FurFriday @BarkBox Bone-Appetit Edition @petprojekt @Wagatha @PetmateProducts @Feelgoodtreats

#FurFriday

 Happy #BlackFriday & #FurFriday everyone. This month’s BarkBox was all things finger licking good. Celebrating the American Thanksgiving. 

boxThis BarkBox had four items in it. Two toys and two treats. They also introduced their new Bark Shop where you can order lots of toys and treats. I love this idea since I often see what other people got in their boxes and there are items that stand out that I really want. I’ve already order the sugar skull toy that was in the halloween box. I love it and cant wait for it to arrive!

chickenleg{Petprojekt Dogmeat Turkey Leg}

We have gotten something similar in a previous BarkBox it was a steak { see here }. It looks so realistic and is the perfect way to include your dog in the holiday festivities. Chino eats actual turkey legs so I don’t want to confuse him with a toy that looks like dinner. This will be added to our donation for our Charity Drive 

turduckentreats{ Feel God Treat Company Slow Roasted Rosemary Turducken}

I was amazed to see this. I have heard of Turducken before from watching the Food Network. It’s a Chicken inside a Duck inside a Turkey. Can we say bird overload? I am very intrigued by these treats and love the fact that their made in Canada too. I will definitely be saving these and using them to celebrate the holiday season with Chino.

hedge{Petmate Chef Heggies}

Love love love this guy. He is adorable, fuzzy and has a water bottle inside. I love that he is a chef equipped with apron and all. Chino loves this and tossed it all over the place when it arrived. Super cute!

wagathas{Wagatha’s Kitchen Sink Treats}

These treats are made of natural ingredients and are all organic too. Packed with goodies like pumpkin, apples, flax seed and honey to name a few these little treats pack a punch of good foods for your dog.

@BarkBox { Halloween Edition } @petprojekt @maxandruffys

#WoofWednesdaysBarkBox { Halloween Edition }
I am super excited for all of this month’s subscription boxes to arrive given its my favourite time of the year. Let’s get right into it!

DSC00165

{Plush Puppies Squeaker Mat Mummy}

Double stitched and full of squeakers this is a durable, hours of fun and soft buddy to have around the house. I have played tug of war with this with Chino, thrown it and even had him wear it is a scarf. It has so many squeakers in it! Chino loves playing with it while I am on a phone call…*sigh*DSC00172

{Max & Ruffy’s Pumpkin Patch Bites}

 Keeping with the howloween spirits these gluten, GMO and dairy free treats are an awesome addition ot this month’s box. They are also organic too. I will be gifting these to a lucky pup and maybe even if we get some four legged trick or treaters. 

DSC00171

{Snicky Snaks Cinnamon Crunch Bar}

 Also packed with goodness and organic ingredients, this treat is supposed to look like a chocolate bar you would hand out on October 31st. We gifted this to a lucky pup who I am sure thoroughly enjoyed it. It smelled of all things fall { yum! }

DSC00168

{Pet Projekt Squeeki Skull}

I have to say Pet Projekt is probably one of my top 3 toy companies. The toys are always super durable, interactive and fun. I was so excited for this skull as I love anything with skulls on it. I will surely be taking this to the dog park as it looks like it will be a load of fun to play with. 

DSC00167

{Hare of the Dog Rabbit Jerky Stick}

Like the label reads 100% rabbit jerky. Great for sensitive tummies as this is an uncommon protein source. Chino devoured this in less time than it took me to open it so it is a thumbs up in my books!

DSC00170

{Heartland Premium Weasand Strips}

Made of 100% cow gullet which is a great source of chondroitin { helps hips and joints }. I laid out all the items on the ground for Chino to have his pick and this is what he went for immediately. He drooled everywhere and came back looking for more once he was done. I am hoping I can find this treat again at my local store as I really liked it { aka it did not stink}. DSC00169

 This month also came with an extra information card titled Scout’s Honor. If you are unhappy with any item in your box BarkBox will replace it for free. This speaks levels to their customer service as they want to ensure happy pups all around. I always have a use for items that Chino doesnt personally love but I would definitely use this service for duplicate items.

BarkBox September

BarkBox September

Prior to receiving our BarkBox for the month I decided we would be gifting a lot of the contents in it. The only thing Chino got his paws on was the duck chew because he snatched it before I could say “Pick one thing of your choice from the box to keep…”, his decision was made prior to any discussion about it! haha :) 

Barkworthies - Sweet Potato Steak Fries

Barkworthies – Sweet Potato Steak Fries

Barkworthies has come in a number of our BarkBoxes and I am always happy with the items. Usually they are bully stick or chew which I am always happy about receiving. These treats are said to be great for sensitivities and allergies. Made of 100% sweet potato this is a healthy alternative to regular treats and something your pup will surely love.

Petsafe - Indigo Smokehouse Strips {Bacon}

Petsafe – Indigo Smokehouse Strips {Bacon}

These treats need to be consumed within three days of opening and have to be put into the fridge after opening. This makes me think they are made with fresh ingredients and the short self life goes to attest to the no artificial flavours, colours, or preservatives. This high reward level must be great for training and can be cut into smaller pieces for that purposes too.

Etta Says Duck Chew

Etta Says Duck Chew

This was the treat of choice in this month’s box for Chino. They are a great treat made of a single protein source which allows your dog to try a protein they may not regularly have. I have gone through several process of elimination with Chino figuring out what sets him off and I am glad to report that the duck sits well with him. 

PetProjekt Skrubal Football

PetProjekt Skrubal Football

Chino is already the proud owner of a Skrubal from PetProjekt, this has stood the test of time and has been thrown just about everywhere. I love that the rubber is 100% natural and I also hide treats inside of it once in a while. Pet Projekt makes some pawesome toys and it is very fitting for the overall team spirit/football theme BarkBox had this month.

Safemade Pet Pawxford Pennant

Safemade Pet Pawxford Pennant

Keeping with the team spirit theme, what better way to show it than this pennant. Bring it along anywhere you go to show your support. This toy was pretty cool as it had a crunchy feel to it which will keep your pup enticed for a long while.  (maybe while you watch football on tv?)

#WoofWoofWednesday

All aboard! This month’s BarkBox was totally nautical.

BarkBox

{Jolly Pet’s Romp n ‘Roll}

 This toy is a combination of a dogs must haves in one. It’s part ball part rope. It floats, is great for tug of war and the ball is puncture resistant. This is the first time I hear of a puncture resistant ball. I have had to replace several soccer balls that have been punctured by Chino so I am happy to know this one wont!

{Jolly Pets Romp n' Roll}

{Jolly Pets Romp n’ Roll}

{Bocce’s Bakery Lobster Roll Treats}

Can we say mouth watering and delicious. I could eat a lobster roll any day! I love it. We have gotten Bocce’s Bakery treats before and love that they are wheat free and have simple human grade ingredients in them. However, Chino will not be trying these as a previous allergy test revealed he is allergic shellfish and I do not want to risk it. I also love that they have kelp too. We will share these at the dog park.

{Bocce's Bakery Lobster Roll Treats}

{Bocce’s Bakery Lobster Roll Treats}

 {Grandma Bowser’s Cheddar Bites}

These treats are wheat free, soy free and corn free. They are great for sensitive tummies and of course the cheese makes them that much more enticing for every pooch!

{Grandma Bowser's Cheddar Biscuits}

{Grandma Bowser’s Cheddar Biscuits}

{Pet Rageous Lobster}

*Cue Awesome Music* We saved the best for last. This was the top hit this month. The lobster toy that flats and does not pinch! Chino absolute loved this toy. I know there was a warning to only play in water with it but I supervise Chino when he plays and we have created a hide and seek game with this toy. He also has a name now too. Luis the lobster or in spanish Luis La Langosta. If I say this Chino immediately searches the house for him and returns him to me to be rewarded. I absolutely love this toy and will hopefully get to take it to a trip to the beach before the summer ends.

#WoofWoofWednesday {@BarkBox Surf’s Up Pups}

#WoofWoofWednesdays
#WoofWoofWednesdays

Our BarkBox arrived in the mail last week and I must say I was pleased with the contents for June. Once again BarkBox has introduced a new way or reordering the items in your box by simply ending a text with the item code and boom. I definitely will try this out at some point with something that makes Chino drool. The total value of this month’s box is $39. 

BarkBox July Review

The theme for July was Surf’s Up Pups! The inspiration? The beach, sand and sea of course. 

Healthy Dogman{Healthy Dogma – Coconut Flavour Barkers}

These all natural, grain, gluten, wheat and soy free are as healthy as it gets. They also have coconut which have great health benefits for your dog. Chino gets coconut oil in his food a few times a week so I love that these have coconut and pumpkin too. Im pretty excited about these :) 

photo 3{Mr.Barksmith’s -Pina Colada Smoothie}

We have gotten these frozen treats before, the flavour seems very fitting for the boxes theme. These seem great to give your dog while you are enjoying a cocktail by the pool yourself. 

photo 4{Loopies- Fish Bones Toy & Etta Says- Duck Chew}

This fishy seems like it will be a new bff for Chino as it is great to tugging and has stood the test of durability. As for the duck chew…GONE! Chino devoured it immediately and I love that this is a single protein source and comes in a variety of flavours we regularly purchase these where available.

photo 5{Bixbi – Daily Essentials – Chicken Breast Jerky Treats}

With all the precautions on chicken jerky going around it is great to know this treat is 100% made in the USA and sourced as well. This is extremely important information. I am saving these as I know I can get Chino to do cartwheels for these if needed. They are great for training as they are a high value treat in my household and are easy to break off.

#WoofWoofWednesday @BarkBox { June Review }

IMG_20140617_120334

This month the theme was jet setting and the tastes of the world. Yum!

Benebone Nylon Chew

Benebone Nylon Chew

Chino has yet to sink his teeth into this one. At first I was unsure if he is supposed to eat the entire thing or if it was a flavoured toy. The bacon dog chew promises to be great for serious chewers so I am saving this for a long visit to someone’s house to keep him preoccupied. 

Green Bark Gummies Hip & Joint Treats

Green Bark Gummies Hip & Joint Treats

I had looked into Green Bark treats before as they have great supplements in them and have no wheat, corn or soy in them. They also look just like gummie bears! {Delish!}

R2P Monkey Silly Bums

Can we say adorable? How many times do you call your dog a “Silly Bum” and now there is a toy that is just a bum! It crinkles and squeaks too to keep your pup entertained. 

Benny Bully's Beef Liver & Banana Treats

Benny Bully’s Beef Liver & Banana Treats

We shared these delicious treats with our friends at the park and they were a big hit. I love Benny Bully’s because I can break it into the right size for smaller dogs and it hides banana in it. {Hahah! If only Chino knew he had a fruit…}.

BarkBox had a surprise this month and implemented a new ordering system to reorder items that you received in your box. You know in case someone devours the entire box before the next one can come in the mail. You simply text 484-696-BARK with the code specific to each item. Prettttty cool!

@BarkBox May Edition #Giveaway

PicsArt_1401238523296

 

This month’s BarkBox arrived in the knick of time. Chino was feeling a bit down seeing me pack box after box and wondering what was going on. This provided the perfect entertainment for him. This month the theme was farm fresh food. Chino dug right into the box so I made him pose with everything and as per usual he put his grumpy face on (it’s all a show)

IMG_20140522_101303

Let’s dive in shall we?

Snicky Snaks

Snicky Snaks

Snicky Snaks
Unamused look and all these treats were a hit with Mr.Chino. They are organic and GMO free and have all natural ingredients I was surprised he liked them considering they were not made of meat. They smell delicious too!

Nootie -BBQ Chicken Jerky

Nootie -BBQ Chicken Jerky

Nootie-BBQ Chicken Jerky
Nootie treats are always a hit for me. I love that they are soft and great for training. They are wheat, corn and soy free which are great for pups with allergies. These made Chino do anything I asked. 

JW Pet - Megablast Ball

JW Pet – Megablast Ball

JW Pet – Megablast Ball
JW makes great rubber toys and I love them because they are durable easy to wash. Made of recyclable materials they are eco-friendly too.  Chino has too many toys and we will most likely gift this to someone who needs it. 

Loopies - Rozcoe

Loopies – Rozcoe

Loopies-Rozcoe
This cat toy made of corduroy with squeaky insert did not catch Chino’s attention and I could see the stuffing being spread out all over the house. We will definitely gift this to a non-chewer who will enjoy snuggling with it.
