Our Barkbox Review April 2014 - Zoe's Big Dog Box

April was a very special month for Zoe the Mastiff as it was the first month that she received her very own Barkbox! Emma began getting Barkbox in February and after two successful months, we decided to add an extra subscription especially for Zoe. Now our family receives the small dog and big dog boxes! 

This review is for Zoe's Big Dog Barkbox but you can read Emma's Small Dog Barkbox review too!

When we received two Barkboxes in the mail, Zoe couldn't contain her smile and pure joy at getting her very own piece of mail. Have you ever seen such a happy face?!?

Zoe's Barkbox included two bags of treats, two toys and a duck chew! Every item was a hit with both her and Emma the Pug.

Petprojekt DogEgg

By far, Zoe's favorite item was the DogEgg. It was the first thing she took out of the box and she's been obsessed with the toy for the past month. Even more amazing, the egg has a squeaker inside and it's still squeaking! Zoe is notoriously hard on her toys and most squeakers don't last a day. Way to go, Petprojekt for making a squeaker that lasts! 

The DogEgg is great for playing catch and the egg shape makes for some erratic bouncing around the house that just adds to the fun. It's small enough for Zoe to catch in her mouth too!

Even pugs love the DogEgg! Emma likes to steal it from her big sister and play with the toy too!

Pet Qwerks Newspaper

Who would have thought that a simple newspaper-themed toy could be so much fun? The trick with this toy is that it has a pouch to hide treats inside and this gives the dogs an added challenge at treat time. We just started using this toy the other day so I'm not sure how well it will hold up yet. My plan is to just give it to the dogs at treat time and put it away during the rest of the day to prolong it's lifespan. 

Wagatha's Breakfast Biscuits

Emma loves these apple, banana and oatmeal biscuits. Zoe seems to be undecided. She chomped down her first and second biscuit but when I tried to feed a biscuit to her the following morning, she showed no interest in it. Emma, however, was not shy about helping her sister finish her treat. 

Superior Farms Venison Waffles

The dogs love these venison treats! During the past month, they've eaten almost the entire bag. There has never been a moment's hesitation from either pup in accepting this treat and I may have to look for these online to get another bag. These come highly recommended by both Zoe and Emma!

Etta Says Duck Chew

I hesitated to give Zoe the duck chew as I'm pretty sure that she's allergic to chicken and I'm not sure if the allergy extends to other forms of poultry. But ultimately I let her give it a try in small doses. I thought it would a little more difficult for her to eat but instead she managed to chomp bites off the end, which is fine, but resulted in me taking it away after just a few minutes. Thankfully, she seems to be fine today and hopefully this means that duck is okay for her to enjoy.

Emma got to sample the duck stick too and thought that it was just as good for small dogs as big dogs.

We've already received Zoe's May Barkbox and will start testing out the new toys and treats soon!
