Overall Opinion: I really liked the dog toys in this month's BarkBox.  They were certainly the highlight of this "Sherlock Bones" box for me.  BarkBox always does an amazing job at sticking to a monthly theme and having unique toys made specifically for their box.  I was a little disappointed in the treat selection that we received.  While I do appreciate that BarkBox always sends fairly healthy treats, my disappointment came in that both treats are the same chewy and soft texture.  Bruce Wayne is quite picky (for a dog) about his treats.  Sometimes, he will eat the soft ones, but a lot of times, he just licks it to death.  Therefore, if you have a dog that prefers crunchy treats, you wouldn't have received any treats your dog likes.

The best part about BarkBox (besides the goodies) is that if your dog really enjoys something in particular, it is extremely easy to reorder any treats or toys.  In each box, you'll get a card detailing the month's theme, along with a number in which you can text to reorder your goodies.  Also, if there was something in the box that you didn't get, but you wanted, you can go to to see and order the entire monthly collection.

*The Fine Print* - BarkBox sends toys and treats based on your dogs size at the time you signup for a subscription or single box and even if you have the same size dog as me, you may have received different products (same theme though) than Bruce Wayne.  Bruce Wayne is an affiliate for BarkBox, however, these are solely my honest opinions of this month's box based on Bruce Wayne's size and preference.
