***Looking for a gift to blow your pup’s mind? Spoil them with a BarkBox! Every month BarkBox delivers 2 original toys, designed in-house, 2 full bags of all-natural treats, and a chew.

Sign up here and receive a free extra toy every month. <– This deal is worth up to $120 in value if you sign up for a 12-month subscription! 🙂

Let’s be honest here, your pup will probably put anything in their mouth. If we had a dollar for every time we pried something suspicious out of our dog’s jaws, we’d have a lot of slobbery dollars to spend on toys. For now, we’re stuck with a handful of mystery and a burning question: how do I make sure my money is going toward the best toys for my dog, even when I’m working on a budget?


As pup parents, we know that what our dog plays with is important and that cutting costs should never include sacrificing the quality of the toys. Buying quality helps keep cost down, as fewer replacements are needed. It also gives you the satisfaction of knowing your pup is enjoying the perfect toy for them, so you know you’re getting your money’s worth when you make the purchase.

So what does it mean to buy quality items? These are toys made with durable materials, strong stitching, and designed with long-lasting fun in mind. Additionally, these items have awesome features meant to cater to different playstyles. The “Lady Liberty Ball,” for example, sports a crown with reinforced stitching for gripping and whipping, and a spiky ball to keep the fun going with durability and texture. Or there’s “Peg the Prized Pig,” designed with a water bottle core and rattling beads to provide your dog with a whole new sensory experience without giving up durability.

In addition, with many of these toys coming in at only $10, you don’t need to worry about breaking the bank. BarkShop is ready to get your pup’s tail wagging at an affordable cost, with toys that are designed to last and provide the best playtime experience.


Of course, quality is always ideal. But if you have a dedicated destroyer in your pack, even the most expensive plush can be crushed just as quickly as the bargain bin stuff. Where does that leave our power pups out there? The answer is BarkShop’s Super Chewer section! This is a collection of toys specifically designed to cater to the pups that leave regular plush toys in tatters.

Because these toys are built to last, you know you’re getting the best value for your purchase. Often Super Chewer toys utilize extremely durable materials such as hard natural rubber and strong nylon rope. Long-lasting chews, such as Benebones and Pawplexers, make use of flavored nylon to keep dogs coming back for just one more nibble every time.

Durable pack favorites like “Gobble Gobble Gus” and “Wobblin’ Walter” come in at just $14 on BarkShop’s website. Plus, with their Dog People Promise, you can rest assured that if any purchase on BarkShop misses the mark, the Happy Team experts will be there to help.

Reusable Toys

Getting your money’s worth out of a toy can seem like an impossible task, especially if you have a picky pup in your pack. How many of us have chosen what we knew would be the new favorite toy of the house, only to find a few days later that the magic has faded and our pups couldn’t care less about it? Sure, no biggie, one more for the personal collection. But we still need something for the dog.

Cattle Dog With BarkBox Dog Brick Puzzle Toy

Enter BarkShop’s puzzle and treat-dispensing toys. If your pup is a fan of flavor, a connoisseur of crunch, or just plain loves food, these toys will keep the fun going pretty much forever. Pop some training treats in the “Treat Maze” and watch your pup enjoy themselves to the fullest while working their brain. “Max the Marching Penguin” is always ready to keep you occupied with a fun, erratic bounce, and a hollow core to put everything from peanut butter to wet food inside.

These toys offer long-lasting fun that will stretch your dollar a little further with every use. When playtime is over, just wipe these toys down and they’re ready for the next round of enjoyment.


If you’re ready to settle down and commit to month after month of fun, subscriptions are a great way to save some serious money on not just dog toys, but treats and chews as well. When enough people come together to make their pups happy, something amazing happens. BarkBox is able to offer $40 worth of toys, treats, and a tasty chew for as low as $22 a month for their classic boxes.

If you’re looking for something that’ll outlast and be cost effective for the toughest toy terrors out there, the Super Chewer box could be the perfect fit for your pack. Super Chewer boxes boast extremely durable toys designed specifically to outlast the most determined destroyer and a replacement guarantee if any toy isn’t up to the task. With each Super Chewer box packed full of toys, treats, and meaty chews valued at over $45, and subscriptions as low as $29, you’re absolutely getting your money’s worth.

The BarkBox and Super Chewer websites are constantly running different sign-up promotions, including discounted first boxes and free premium extra toys. BarkBox is paws down the best way to get more bark for your buck. Plus, if anything misses the mark, their expert Happy Team is there to make things right for you and your pup. That means you get peace of mind with every box that heads toward your door.

When it comes to shopping for your pack, stretching your dollar means more fun for them and less stress for you. Shopping for quality, durability, and reusability are all awesome ways to stretch the fun a little further. And monthly boxes of fun can help you fill up your toy box without emptying out your wallet.
