The bark about Bark box!
The first Bark box I received six months ago was everything I expected. Inside were two bags of treats made in the U.S.A or Canada, one natural chew and two squeak toys. Every box featured a different theme.
Their website walked me through step by step on how to customize a box. When customizing the box, it allows you to pick the size and durability level to match your dogs needs. Box pricing varied, but included free shipping.
Every month I received an email notifying me the next shipment for my subscription.
Online shopping opens a treasure trove of endless possibilities, I took pride in taking advantage of this opportunity to spoil my favorite dog.
Working 8 hours a day, at my former job, I found peace of mind knowing a box of goodies would arrive with everything my dog loved saving me time.
My dog Jesse thought the boxes were put together especially for him.
However, with each package, I found his stock of toys accumulating. We ended up with more toys than we could keep up with. Living in a one bedroom apartment, good storage is hard to come by. For the treats and chew on the other hand, Jesse couldn’t get enough!
All good things must come to an end. After I lost my job tightening my finances took the front seat. I had to say goodbye to my monthly subscription to Bark Box. Yes, the website offers individual purchases. You don’t have to commit yourself to a monthly subscription.
Mind you, it did save time, and it was affordable. However, what online shopping lacks is the in person experience.
With my new schedule of my new job I am rewarded with shopping at my local pet store. Asking an employee on their expertise and trying things out before purchasing is a greater peace of mind.
There are so many ways to spoil our four legged friends and these days it seams endless. What works for one person may not work for another. Just as long as the toys we provide them are safe and healthy.
