What do you get for the dog who has everything? As the holidays loom their cheerful heads, take a scroll through these brand new Black Friday deals on the best stuff, for the best dogs, at the best price (even though we’re more likely to splurge on our pups than ourselves).

Year-Round Fun For Plush-Loving Dogs: BarkBox, Double Your First Box Free

A monthly BarkBox includes 2 themed toys, designed in-house, 2 full-size bags of all-natural treats, a savory chew, and one billion happiness units. Every month is a new theme and a new #barkboxday full of dog joy, with flexibility to customize for allergies, play style, toy material preferences, and more.

Pup parents also have endless opportunities to add a rotating selection of extra toys, treats, home, and wellness products tailored to your dog, delivered with your box.

SIGN UP HERE and get double the toys, treats, and chews for free! (That’s 4 toys, 4 bags of treats, and 2 chews!)

Year-Round Fun For Toy-Destroying Dogs: Super Chewer, Double Your First Box Free

A monthly Super Chewer box includes 2 durable, themed fluff-free toys, 2 full-size bags of all-natural treats, and 2 tasty chews. Thoughtfully designed for dogs with serious gnawing power, these toys are more than meets the eye—they cater to every play style and aim to keep dogs engaged for longer-lasting play. From challenging treat-dispensers to tough rubber cores revealed beneath tear-away plush, there’s something for every dog. If they manage to destroy a toy? BARK will replace it, no questions asked.

Like BarkBox, you can customize for allergies, play style, and toy material, plus add on any extra toys, treats, home, or wellness products, delivered monthly with your box.
