Bullymake is a durable toy subscription box specifically for dogs that are “power chewers.” Each monthly box contains two to three durable toys, three to four chews and treats, and other goods based on each dog’s weight and allergies. You can expect to save nearly half the cost of retail. Boxes arrive every 30 days, though there’s no shipment on weekends.
This animal subscription box is exclusively for dogs, but it’s also specifically tailored to “bully breed” dogs. In general, that means dogs who are “power chewers” and tend to destroy softer and less durable toys.
Each month’s delivery includes a selection of chew toys, treats, and other goods. Every item is meant to be long-lasting and withstand plenty of playing and chewing by bigger dogs. There’s also an option to forgo the food items and only include toys.
To sign up, you’ll click on the subscription length option you want on the home page of the website. Options are 1 Month, 3 Months, 6 Months, and 12 Months. Clicking on an option takes you to a signup page.
On this page, you can select one or more boxes, then click on “BUY ME!” to continue to the payment page. You have an option to add a premium toy for $9 more per month, and you can answer either “YES, PLEASE!” or “NO, THANKS.” Answering this question takes you to the next page of the process.
The final page requires your billing and shipping information to complete the purchase. You’ll also need to enter any allergies that your pet has from the dropdown menu. Options for allergies include:
Finally, select your pet’s weight from the drop-down menu. The company caters to dogs from 10 to 200 pounds. If you’re shopping for a puppy, you can adjust your dog’s weight from your account dashboard later on as he or she grows.
Remember to click “BUY NOW!” once you fill all the fields, and your order will be complete! Your order will ship the next business day, and you’ll receive a tracking number as soon as it ships.
Bullymake is unique in that they address a specific need of pet owners with larger or more rambunctious dogs. For pets that tend to rip apart plush toys or bite pieces off toys, this subscription will hopefully change playtime for the better.
The company focuses on power chewers and accommodates dogs from 10 to 200 pounds, plus dogs with allergies. They also maintain a 100% Guarantee on their toys. That means they’ll replace any toy that your dog destroys within 14 days of shipment.
While standard boxes include treats and toys, there’s also an alternate option for toys only. All Bullymake toys and treats are designed, sourced, and manufactured in the USA. Their online store also stocks all the toys from the subscription boxes, though you’ll be paying retail prices when shopping directly from the store as opposed to the higher-value subscription option.
Overall, the company has tested its toys on breeds like:
Do note, no boxes include rawhide, as the company deems it dangerous for dogs. Packages also leave out plush toys since most aggressive chewers will only destroy them!
There are four subscription lengths and pricing options with this bully breed box. Each subscription box contains the same items to make a total of five to six premium items.
For any level subscription, you can also add another premium toy for an additional $9 per month. Further, you can customize boxes based on your dog’s allergies (or lack thereof). If you opt to leave out the edibles and only receive toys, you’ll receive four items every month and no treats.
Once your box arrives, you have 14 days to request a replacement if an item is damaged, whether by your pet or via the shipping process. The company will determine whether the item qualifies for replacement based on a photo that you send to them.
The BBB has plenty of reviews and the company is accredited with the organization. From an average of over 700 consumer reviews, the company has an almost perfect rating out of five stars.
Five-star and similar reviews praise the durability of the dog toys and the fact that their pets seem to enjoy the monthly deliveries. They also appreciate the availability of allergy-friendly and toy-only box options.
In general, the one-star Bully make box review responses involve heavy chewers that were able to destroy the “indestructible” toys from one or more shipments. However, the majority of subscribers were satisfied with the overall quality and durability of the toys.
Other lower review comments note that it’s difficult to cancel a subscription, explaining that the only way to contact the company is either via email or chat function.
Here's a fun unboxing video from Ashleigh Emilia:
