If you’re reading this, your dog is likely a heavy chewer and you need a dog subscription box filled with tougher toys, instead of some flimsy plush toys.

You’ve come to the right place. This blog post will help you decide which option is best for that special power chewer in your life.

Short answer: While both services are high quality and similarly priced, I recommend Super Chewer over Bullymake Box. Super Chewer has amazing customer service, has good coupons, is part of the BarkBox family, and offers a good guarantee. One thing I really don’t like about Bullymake is that they compete with their own affiliates with better deals. As a result, when I offered coupons to visitors in the past, they lost out on better deals offered by the company.

I may receive a small commission through the links below at no cost to you, but you pay nothing extra.

BarkBox Super Chewer vs Bullymake Box Basics

What is BarkBox Super Chewer?

Dog sitting on a towel next to an open BarkBox Super Chewer Box filled with treatsBarkBox Super Chewer is a dog subscription box containing a themed collection of super durable toys, treats, and chews.

It’s often referred to as Super Chewer, Bark Super Chewer, or even BarkBox Super Chewer. If you want to know more about regular BarkBox, I wrote an article on whether BarkBox is worth it.

Super Chewer is owned by Bark, which is the same company that owns BarkBox. The toys that are included in their boxes are designed specifically with strong chewers in mind.

Their boxes are sent on a monthly basis for however long you choose for a subscription such as month to month, 6 months, or 12 months.

What comes in their box?

The Super Chewer regular box contains:

  • 2 toys,
  • 2 all-natural chews, and
  • 2 bags of treats.

They use high quality materials such as nylon and rubber in their toys with no fluff inside.

Additionally, the toys come in a variety of designs. For instance, some are interactive treat dispensers.

The treats and chews are all-natural, free of wheat, corn and soy and made in the U.S. or Canada to high standards. They even offer alternative options for dogs with food sensitivities and allergies.

The subscription boxes are customized for small, medium or large dogs to make sure that the toys and chews are the perfect fit.

What is Bullymake Box?

Their boxes are sent on a monthly basis with various subscription lengths such as month to month, 3 months, 6 months, or 12 months. With a new box and theme every month, your dog should not get bored.

What comes in their box?

The Bullymake regular box contains:

  • 2-3 chew toys, and
  • 3 bags of treats.

They design and manufacture their own chew toys in the U.S. to withstand heavy chewing and test them out with many strong breeds.

When you order from Bullymake, you will be asked the weight of your dog so that they can personalize each box and ensure the toys are size appropriate.

Some of the toys are infused with flavors, while others are interactive and can be stuffed with treats. They also do not send any squeaky toys.

Additionally, Bullymake puts an emphasis on healthy treats and actually manufactures and designs their own treats.

Pricing of Super Chewer vs Bullymake Box

Now I’ll discuss the monthly pricing  for each subscription box.

Super Chewer cost

The current prices of Super Chewer boxes are:

  • Monthly Subscription: $45/month
  • 6 Month Subscription: $35/month ($183 total if prepay- 10% discount)
  • 12 Month Subscription:$30/month ($299 if prepay- 15% discount)

Note: If you prepay for a plan to save money, there’s two charges. The first is for the initial box, then you will get a second charge for the prorated amount of the remaining boxes.

  • 3 Month Subscription: $36/month
  • 6 Month Subscription:$34/month
  • 12 Month Subscription: $31/month

Except for the monthly option, the price of Bullymake is very similar to Super Chewer for the same subscription lengths.

As mentioned in the introduction, Bullymake will often compete with their own affiliates like myself, and offer better deals. As a result, I was doing my visitors a disservice with the coupons I provided since they were losing out on further savings.

Customization

When comparing BarkBox Super Chewer vs Bullymake Box, you should take into account your customization options to fit the needs of your pup.

Super Chewer

There’s some automatic customization from the start since Super Chewer will adjust your items based on the size of your dog. When you sign up, they’ll ask you whether your dog is small (1-20 lbs), medium (20-50 lbs), or large (50+ lbs).

As far as the mixture of items (toys, treats, and/or chews), for your first box, it comes pre-packed. However, for subsequent boxes, you can customize your box by contacting customer service. For example, you can switch to a toys-only box or a toys and treats box without chews.

You can also change the frequency of your boxes after you place your order such as to every other month.

Further, if your dog has allergies, they state that they can accommodate almost all allergies, plus none of their products have wheat, corn or soy.

Bullymake

Just like Super Chewer, Bullymake will ask you for the size of your dog. During the sign-up process, you’ll provide them with your dog’s weight so that they can cater items to the proper size. You can also customize the materials of the toys such as rubber, nylon, rope, or  ballistic after purchase.

You can also adjust the shipping frequency by contacting their customer service.

As far as allergy specifications, they only cater to allergies for grain, beef, or chicken. If your dog has another food sensitivity, they offer a ‘toys only’ box option.

Satisfaction Guarantees

Super Chewer Guarantee

Conclusion: BarkBox Super Chewer vs Bullymake Box?

Both of these subscription boxes separate themselves from their competitors by offering unique toys made for the heavy chewer. As far as price, both companies offer similarly priced plans except for the month to month plan which is cheaper with Bullymake.

As mentioned in the intro, I prefer Super Chewer over Bullymake mainly due to Bullymake competing with their own affiliates. I previously had offered Bullymake coupons to my visitors, but they ended up losing out on better deals directly through the company.

On the other hand, Super Chewer offers many coupon deals that I promote to my visitors such as an extra month, extra toys in your box, special themes, and more.

While BarkBox Super Chewer has a very liberal replacement policy, some of their toys do seem to need replacement more often. Bullymake’s customers do seem to report fewer toys being destroyed.

Both companies seem pretty flexible on customization, with BarkBox catering to more allergy preferences.

Overall, the choice between these two dog subscription boxes really depends on your priorities. I would suggest carefully reviewing the comparison chart above to determine what is most important to you.

    I have two dogs and subscribed to both. Love both boxes. Dogs get so excited.

    I am currently with super chewer. For my blue heeler. I have been frustrated with the constant lag time and ” shipping delays” and have considered changing subscriptions. My Sadie is almost 2 and is a definate chewer. She loves the toys more than the treats. Can you give me some advice?

    I have done both boxes…but stick with Super Chewer. The leg up which is not mentioned her is the variety in the toys over BullyMake. I did 6 months with BullyMake and was disappointed in the creativity. Seemed the nylon was always a flat item just stamped in a different shape…and the rubber item was always a wacky bounce treat dispenser. My dog got very bored. To this day…my dog only uses one of the BullyMake toys…everything else she enjoys is Super Chewer.
