My dogs have been getting BarkBox for about a year now as a gift from a relative. And yeah sometimes the toys are a little cheesy but for the most part they are okay. No toy last that long around here but those lasted as much as any other.
Luckily, my dogs don't have food allergies or issues. Sometimes they really like the treats, sometimes they are just okay and sometimes, well not so much.
Their customer service is pretty good if you have a problem with something in the box and tell them they send you something else (a friend did this).
I think the cost is a little high for what you get. IF you had the time and inclination, you could do better going to Petsmart, Petco or local pet store and pick out toys or treats for less. But my dogs enjoy getting their box ripping it open (with supervision of course) and fighting over the toy(s). I scoop up the treats before they can.
I think the coolest thing about Barkbox is the website that sends you stories about dogs via e-mail. Very entertaining.

|wyoung2153||Lol.. me too. I think I'm going to start today just to see, I mean, I spend a fortune trying to find new toys for Titan and it's really hit or miss.. maybe I'll get something he actually likes and it will essentially be cheaper than I would have spent anyways. lol.|

|Kahrg4||I paid in a lump sum. Also, I use one box for both of my boys. You can order a box for each dog though if you want. Obvs costs more that way though too.|

|trcy||I've thought about getting them, but I worry about the quality and I know any stuffed/squeaky toy will be torn up in under 15 minutes by my oldest male.|

I'm a BarkBox convert! lol
I've gotten some really great things over the past 6 months and some things the boys didn't like. Some of the highlights include doggie liquid bandage spray, Etta says chews, a puzzle toy, and a very popular glow in the dark indestructible (so far) ball.
There are some treats that my boys don't like and I just pass those on to friends. There's only one toy that didn't last long and that was due to me accidentally sending it through the washing machine.
Otherwise I appreciate that there is a huge effort to find Made in America, organic or green, and doggie safe products.
For the 'subscription' that I bought, my box price come out to be $20 a month. For me, between the treats, toys, and other items included in the box I do feel like I break even if not into the black on most boxes.
Also it's just fun to get doggie stuff in the mail.
