My Bulldog, Jagger is a well natured guy, but feels the need to destroy every toy I get for him. Same routine: I bring home a toy, he's elated, he shakes it around, tears it up, and the stuffing is all over the floor within a few hours. While I'm on cleanup duty, he heads to his bed to cuddle with the toy's remains. And that's playtime for us.
I asked another Bully owner how she deals with all the chewing and shredding, and she told me she gets all her toys and treats from Super Chewer, the premium subscription service from BarkBox. It keeps her American Bulldog, Mark, occupied for months to come. Super Chewer sends you a themed monthly package that's filled with their toughest toys and chews for your dog, and as a bonus they also toss in full-sized all-natural treats. Best of all, every treat is made in the USA and Canada - not just some-- all! When I expressed my concerns about the durability of toys I've bought in the past, Mark's owner told me about Super Chewer's stellar customer service. She said that if a dog chews through the toys in their Super Chewer box before the month is over, the "Happy Team" will send another toy for free to keep them busy until their next box arrives, through their Scout's Honor program.
I soon discovered how great the service really was. Our first Super Chewer BarkBox was themed "Bark University" which included a pencil chew toy, a cute football squeaker, and four types of treats and chew sticks (Lambda Treata Phi was my favorite) —all wrapped in hilarious doggie yearbook photos! In the midst of our excitement, Jagger went straight for the football toy, a squeaker that looked like a football straight out of the big game. Squeaking tends to provoke him, but the toy withstood even the most vigorous of bites!
These toys lasted longer than any Jagger had faced before. (In fact, they're still in tact!) And more importantly, Jagger seems overjoyed every time he plays with the new toys – especially his favorite, a sturdy bird with a tennis ball head and tough rope body. The team at Super Chewer just gets us. They really know dogs, and it's a premium service with a support team that will help you no matter how big or small the issue.
Now that Jagger's caught on, he can recognize his Super Chewer box waiting on the step even before we even bring it inside. I say, "Jagger, it's Super Chewer time!" and he starts barking and wiggling. We always have a priceless bonding experience over it, plus the adorable themes keep us on our toes each month. Considering the quality of the toys, the natural treats he loves, and the customization and friendliness of the service, we're giving Super Chewer BarkBox two thumbs (and two paws) up.
