Let’s delve into what you can expect from your Bark Box.

Bark Box Contents: What Comes in a Bark Box?

Each monthly BarkBox contains 4-6 content pieces, including:

–       All-Natural Treats

–       Super Fun Dog Toys

–       Hygiene products (less often)

No BarkBox is ever quite the same, and each is carefully though out and crafted by the BarkBox team. Life is like a BarkBox – you never know what you’re going to get!

While you may never know exactly what content will come in a BarkBox each month, know that each BarkBox contains treats from trusted vendors who use top-notch ingredients. No scary stuff here!

Toys are tested for optimal doggie enjoyment by the Bark Box team’s very own pups, ensuring that each Bark Box keeps your canine happy and healthy (unfortunately BarkBox doesn’t offer a kitty option, but we have our own list of cat subscription boxes you should check out if you’re a cat lover.)

Bark Box Cost of Subscription

Here’s how it breaks down:

12 Month Bark Box Plan (aka 1 year) = $219. This amounts to $18/month. [best value]

6 Month Bark Box Plan = $114. This amounts to about $19/month.

3 Month Bark Box Plan = $72. This amounts to $24/month.

1 Month Bark Box Plan = $29/month.

 Note: You pay upfront for the entire cost of subscription

Bark Box Sizes: How Does it Work?

Bark Boxes come in different packages depending on the size of your dog. Sizes include:

  • Small BarkBox: For dogs 0-10 lbs
  • Medium BarkBox aka “Just Right” : 20-50lbs
  • Big BarkBox aka “Big & Bold” : 50+ lbs

 Is Bark Box a Good Value?

Bark Boxes generally have products whose collective value is much higher than the cost of the Bark Box. Generally it’s great to have a solid collection of dog toys around for your pooch so that they can stay occupied and challenged, especially when leaving a dog home alone.

To top it off, BarkBox gives 10% of proceeds to support doggie rescue groups. How awesome is that?

You can double-check with Bark Box to be sure, Marc, but the weight of the boxes will likely vary as the contents change.
