Looking for a gift for a dog parent in your life? Or maybe some stocking stuffers for your own special pup? Here are some of Your Dog’s Friend’s favorite things…


Our webmaster, E. Foley, has been getting BarkBox for her pup for over a year and loves it. In fact, Titania the cocker spaniel now assumes that ALL boxes that arrive at the house are BarkBoxes and that she should get to inspect everything the mailman drops off.

What is it?

A subscription service that delivers a box of dog goodies monthly.

How much does it cost?

Plans are as low as $18 per month.  If you were to purchase the items in the box separately, they would be closer to $30-35 total.

What comes in the box?


Titania says, “Yes, please!”

Each box contains 1-2 toys, 2-3 edibles (treats, chews), and the occasional extra, like an extra absorbent towel for rainy days.

What if my dog hates an item / has allergies / etc?

BarkBox allows exchanges if your dog turns up their nose at a treat or toy. You can also put in special requests if your dog has food allergies.

Are the treats made in the USA?

Yes! No worries there!

Can I try just one box? Or gift one box to a friend?

Yes! A single box is $29 and you can ship it to yourself or a friend.
