The Worst Toy in our BarkBox

Standard

Sophie & Shamrock Saturday!

Sophie and Shamrock got their June BarkBox last week… with a camping theme!

The always funny tidbits they offer for the hoomans:

All of the boxes are a bit different, based on dog size and availability. Here’s our contents:

Let’s Review:

  • S’mores Treats – The BarkBox treats are always a hit with Sophie & Shamrock. But they really smell like S’mores. So don’t be tempted to eat them yourself!
  • Granola Bites Trail Treats – We have not yet opened these, but I have no doubt they will be loved.
  • Etta Chew – always Sophie’s favorite
  • Giggle Buddy Bear – I like the giggle sound of this toy and the stretchy legs. Sham likes it, but it isn’t his favorite. He’s still obsessed with peas in pod, though!
  • Pawty Training Roll – Worst BarkBox toy EVER! Let’s delve into why…

When we pulled the Pawty Training Roll out of the box, we thought, “This is the dumbest toy ever!” The velcro unrolls the toy only part way. “How would you use this?” Rob and I thought maybe stuffing it with treats or something, but it still seemed weird.

I had the girls over for a puppy play date so that Rob could meet Kim’s new Shih Tzu puppy, Phoebe. I showed Jen and Kim the Pawty Training Roll and we all discussed what a stupid toy it was. Then I tossed it aside as we discussed other things.

Phoebe went right for it!

She loved the challenge of getting the velcro apart and the crinkly sound of the roll. Once unrolled, she used her paw to roll it back up. So adorable. This toy was designed for mid-size and big dogs; but this 2-lb, 11-week-old Shih Tzu loved it! {It went home with Miss Phoebe!}

Moral of the story:

All dogs are different and you’ll be surprised which toys they love!

That’s one of the things I love about BarkBox. We’ve discovered some great toys that Shamrock loves that we would have never bought for him otherwise. The ones I have bought him, he never seems to take much interest in…

If you’d like to try out some new toys on your pup, you can enroll in BarkBox. This link will give you an extra free box added to your subscription. {Full disclosure: Sophie and Sham will get a free box, too!}

 

Happy Saturday!

  1. Well glad the toy found a new home! That video was too cute! You wouldn’t believe all the dogs I see at Farmer’s Markets – and a lot of people have the baby carriers for their tiny dogs!

  2. We did barkbox for a few months but quit because we weren’t going through the treats fast enough to justify a monthly service AND the toys they sent were 95% destroyed within a few days. There were just a few toys we got that our dog did not destroy!
