Over the last few months, the format of the box has made that research a little harder.
At one point, the BarkBox came with stuff from a whole slew of different providers. And the newsletter that came with the box told me a little more about the companies involved. Through BarkBox, I learned about Etta Says and other companies I buy from all the time now. But newer boxes are filled with 90 percent of products made by BarkBox. And the newsletter doesn't say much about the products anymore.
For awhile, I was peevish about that. But this month's selection highlights why BarkBox is still a good value. Let me tell you more.
The other toy Liam is posing with. This little plaid Scottie dog is made with acid-free dyes and the insides are made with recycled plastic bottles. There's a two-way squeaker inside, and it's just the right size for my small dogs.
In theory, I could get toys like this anywhere. But BarkBox stands behind the toy selections. If my big-time chewers mess up these toys, I can get a replacement or a refund. I know my pet store wouldn't do the same. That makes these toys a great value.
The first is My Doggy. Apparently, this company was created by a pet owner looking for all-natural treats for her picky pups. The treats we got are small, and they're made with peanut butter. I'm sure the dogs will love these.
The other company is called I'd Rather Be With My Dog. These treats were made for training, so they're small and easy to break apart. And they come with a guarantee, so if the dogs don't like things from this company, I can get my money back.
The final little bit of snack is from the BarkBox company, and it's a slab of jerky. I know the dogs will love that, but I am grateful to have some selections from new and different providers this month. I just hope the dogs like them!

Thanks for stopping by! Before you go, do leave me a comment. I always love to see what my readers think. And be sure to check back next week. Sinead has her mast cell tumor chemotherapy treatment on Monday, and I'm hoping to have an update for you on Tuesday or so.
