When asked by NYmag why he started Barkbox.com, Henrik Werdelin noted that there is a big difference between dog owners and dog parents. The latter love their dogs so much that they look for ways to delight and surprise their pooch on a regular basis. Dog parents love giving their pup treats, buying them things and treating them like members of the family. We’re totally on board with this! Werdelin also noted that BarkBox is a service for these types of dog people. What is this BarkBox.com we speak of?
BarkBox has jumped on the subscription-based shopping trend, which has become highly popular for fashion and accessories, but they’ve done it with dog products! Once you subscribe, you will receive a box full of four or more items each and every month. They deliver toys, treats, bones, gadgets and other goodies which you can peek at on their Facebook page. First you select the size of your dog, then you choose a one-month, three-month or six-month plan.
If this sounds appealing to you, you’ll be happy to know that by subscribing to BarkBox you will also be helping other dogs in need. BarkBox gives 10% from each box they ship to a local shelter or rescue.
Sounds like a simple and fun way to spoil your dog, doesn’t it? We think this would also make a great gift for a fellow dog lover.
