BarkBox Super Chewer is a dog subscription box for aggressive chewers and pets with heavy chewing needs. Each subscription box arrives with two tough toys, two bags of treats, and two chews. Subscribers can expect to save up to 50 percent off retail costs. Boxes ship on the 15th of every month, while initial boxes ship immediately.
If you need tough dog toys for a dog who’s a super chewer, this is one of the few subscription boxes specially intended for heavier chewers. Every delivery contains two super-tough toys that lack fluff but have plenty of staying power. Durable dog toys for heavy chewers utilize materials like rubber cores, nylon rubber, and embedded squeakers to help prolong the life of the items.
There are also treats in each box; two full bags of treats from either the US or Canada plus two meaty chews that are all-natural. Altogether, that’s six premium items for super chewing dogs.
To sign up, click on any of the button options on the website; “GET STARTED,” “SUBSCRIBE,” or “CHOOSE A PLAN.” On the first screen, you’ll select your dog’s size; “Small but Mighty,” “Middle Weight,” or “Large & in Charge.”
All the boxes are the same price, and you can always update this selection later as necessary. Just click on a size to continue with your subscription. On the following screen, choose from a monthly plan option; 12 Months, 6 Months, or 1 Month. Each plan will automatically renew unless you cancel.
The following screen will ask whether you want to add a third super premium toy to your subscription. The cost is $9 extra. Choose either “YES, PLEASE!” or “NO, THANK YOU.” to continue to the next page in the signup process.
Next, enter your email address and select your update preference to receive newsletters and other emails of interest from the company.
The final screen asks for your shipping address, billing information, and reviews your order. Fill in the appropriate information and click “BUY NOW” to finish your subscription signup.
The BarkBox Super Chewer is a heavy-duty upgrade from the brand’s original BarkBox and caters to dogs with the need to chew. This subscription box for pets contains tough dog toys that will take whatever chewing your pet can dish out- guaranteed.
You can also reach out to customer service to get a different variety of toys, such as semi-plush ones if your dog’s (or your) preference changes.
If your dog destroys any toy, the company will send a new one free of charge- there’s no proof needed, no time limits, and no questions asked. For larger breeds or just those who are “small but mighty” as the company calls it, you may benefit from these dog toys for aggressive chewers.
All boxes are priced the same regardless of dog size, and each contains the same number of items. Pricing differences vary based on the subscription term you sign up for. All plans automatically renew, however.
Because the company has other box selections, it can be difficult to find BarkBox Super Chewer reviews separate from the rest of their offerings. Overall, however, the company earned a two-star rating on Trustpilot across all its subscription boxes, which means a “Poor” ranking.
However, some BarkBox Super Chewer reviews specifically discuss unique facets of the Super Chewer subscription. For example, one reviewer gave a five-star review and highlighted that their puppy had previously destroyed plush and other chew toys. The products were durable, the reviewer found, and although the puppy did not like some of the toys, the company was willing to send replacements.
Most negative reviews about the overall brand were in regard to automatic billing practices and the fact that all subscriptions auto-renew. However, this is common with subscription boxes and isn’t something that’s unique to this particular brand. It’s also noted quite transparently on their website.
Some Facebook reviews for the company specifically highlight positive aspects of the Super Chewer subscription, and the company has a total rating of 4.1 out of 5 on Facebook. Positive reviews noted the durability of the tougher toys and the responsiveness of customer service to shipping and other concerns.

Monthly orders ship around the 15th of each month. Your first order, however, will ship almost immediately after you sign up.
Unfortunately, it appears that pets with allergies don’t have alternate options with this subscription. Every box includes two bags of treats and two chews, with no option to substitute additional toys.
The company maintains a 100% satisfaction guarantee, so they say they’ll replace any toy that your dog manages to destroy. There are no time limits, you don’t have to submit proof, and there’s no additional fee to get a replacement toy.
Every toy is designed and tested by the company itself. They note that they have their dogs test the products to ensure they’ll withstand heavy chewers. Toys are mostly made of rubber and nylon.
BarkBox Super Chewer began in New York as a division of the greater parent company, Bark. The cofounders of Bark & Co. are Matt Meeker, Henrik Werdelin, and Carly Strife. Though the company started subscription boxes well before this reinforced-toy idea sprang up, it didn’t take long for them to realize there was a need for more durable toys for rough-and-tumble dogs.
In 2016, Carly Strife gave an interview where she highlighted the addition of the super chewer box to cater to “breeds of dogs who just love to destroy toys.” She also explained that part of her motivation for helping launch the brand itself was the fact that her two dogs are very different, but every time she went to the pet store, she wasn’t getting the right advice to cater to both of their needs.
The solution was sourcing products and companies to contribute items to boxes that maintain the variety that pets and their parents want without resorting to stuffed toys or other easily destroyed items. Of course, the company also follows themes to keep things interesting for pet owners and dogs alike.
