BARK Food is a dog food subscription that offers breed-focused kibble, supplements & products designed to support your dog’s individuality.
Each breed has a unique profile of physical and behavioral characteristics that BARK Food takes into consideration when selecting the best food options for them. — For example, labrador retrievers tend to skip the chewing part of eating dinner, which is why they have a slow feeder bowl for them. Pitties tend to have sensitive skin, so they recommended a skin & coat supplement to help with that. For each breed, they offer recommendations for food, supplements, and accessories — all based on your dog’s specific needs according to their breed, age, and any allergies they may have. You then choose which of those products you’d like to purchase.

Let’s see what I received in my September 2022 BARK Food box!
Everything was shipped in a brown box with the BARK logo on the side and pink tape with fun graphics across the top.
A peek inside!
I was sent a box designed for chihuahua’s, which my mother-in-law’s shitzu was happy to enjoy.
Itty-Bitty Chicky (15lb bag* – $23.75 with subscription, $25 without)
*Note: I was sent a 4lb bag for review purposes, but subscribers will receive a 15lb bag.*
“Itty-Bitty Chicky” was especially designed for smaller dogs (like chihuahua’s 😉 ) and features small bite-sized pieces that are easy for little mouths to chew. Formulated by BARK board certified nutritionists, the recipe blends US-grown chicken (first ingredient!) with wholesome grains like brown rice and oatmeal to provide a healthy & balanced meal for your pup. It also contains natural fiber & pre/probiotics to promote digestion, taurine for heart health, and antioxidants (Vitamins C & E and selenium) to maintain a strong immune system.
A separate package held all of the optional products recommended for this particular breed.
Hip, Hop, Hooray! Hip & Joint Soft Chews ($14.25 with subscription, $15 without)
Chihuahuas are prone to joint conditions that affect their hips, elbows, and knees. The bacon-flavored soft chews above were formulated by board-certified nutritionists to help support healthy joints & cartilage and keep your doggo moving. They’re made with beneficial joint & cartilage boosting nutrients including omega 3 fatty acids, collagen peptides, and natural sources of glucosamine & chondroitin sulfate. Dogs up to 10 pounds need just 1/2 chew per day.
Bada Bing, Bada Beef! Authentic Beef Liver Sprinkles ($9.50 with subscription, $10 without)
Chihuahuas are also prone to being quite
picky particular eaters. 😉 Bada Bing, Bada Beef! is a natural topper that can be sprinkled onto their meals for a boost of flavor. It contains 100% beef liver — no fillers, preservatives, or anything artificial.
Reversible Bandana ($10)
The final item was a fun 2-sided (reversible) bandana. This one-size-fits most (small dogs) accessory features a blue, pink, and white design with the phrase “I’m not picky, I’m particular” in different color ways on each side. It’s machine washable and absolutely adorable.
BARK Food is a convenient, affordable way to make sure your pup gets exactly what he/she needs to thrive with breed-specific food and supplements. All of the products I received were made with high quality ingredients and designed especially for the unique needs of chihuahuas. I appreciate that all of the items ship FREE and that you get to choose exactly which products you want to include in your shipment. Oh, and don’t forget — for a limited time you can save 30% on your first order with coupon code “ROSEBUDS30“!
