Your pets love gifts and surprises, too. BarkBox is offering these.
Founded in New York, the BarkBox is a subscription-based online service where customers receive every month gifts for their dogs, healthy products, and gadgets toys.
The service is ideal for the dogs of most sizes, including puppies, medium-sized breeds, or even for the large breeds such as the Great Dane. Consequently, BarkBox carefully crafts each of your every month’s boxes to your specific dog’s size you’ve entered upon registration, and because you never really know what you’ll get, BarkBox is represented by a 4 to 6 surprise items.
According to the BarkBox website, all the edible items are in-house analyzed and are originally from the US, Canada, South USA, Australia, and New Zealand. Because BarkBox’s founders are dogs lovers, as well as you are, they wouldn’t send anything harmful to your pups, so the BarkBox products are parabens-free, and contain no formaldehyde. Furthermore, the company guarantees that at least 10% of their scored profits will be redirected to canine-related shelters, rescues, and welfare organizations.
When your at your first time on BarkBox, you have to simply choose your dog’s size between:
- 0-20 pounds
- 20-50 pounds
- 50+ pounds.
Regardless of your dog’s size, all the packages can be found at the same price, as follows:
- Month-to-month charges is of $29
- A three-month registration is of $24, on monthly basis, meaning a 17% deduction
- A six-month registration is of $19, on monthly basis, meaning a 34% deduction.
All the subscriptions are billed automatically, including free shipping and delivery via USPS, and can be canceled in any moment without further explication.
Each BarkBox delight is dispatched on the 15th of every month, and most consumers have reported that they’ve received their dogs’ surprises quickly and without delays. However, if you are a fresh BarkBox client and if you’ve subscribed following the 10th of the month, don’t forget that your package will be sent after the 15th of the next month.
When your BarkBox is provided with a faulty item, BarkBox offers to all its customers the possibility to immediately send it back for a total refund. On the other hand, if a similar product is on stock, your faulty object will be replaced with a working one, or a reimbursement toward your bank account will be sent.
Speaking of the clients who have already reviewed the worthiness of these BarkBox’s packages, we should consider the fact that the opinions are mixed, accordingly with the retail value of the monthly fee of $29:
- The BarkBox regular surprises are specifically designed for your pet
