Ruffin' It, Holiday-Style

Give the gift of a BarkBox subscription

Let's be real: Along with great-aunt Sally and your college roommate, your dog (and dogs of your closest humans) tops your holiday gift list. Those canines have taste as discerning as yours.

This season, stop wrapping that bone and leave it to BarkBox, makers of the first monthly care package with handpicked treats and toys for your furry friend. A box full of premium pup products is the perfect gift for dogs and dog owners alike, and Tasting Table readers get 10 percent off their entire BarkBox order this week with the code CYBERTASTING.

Even the most particular pooch will find something to love:

For the furry food critic: Reward her dedicated taste-testing (she's never scarfed down a dish she didn't like) with the gift of hygienic chew toys to cleanse her palate and prepare her for the next tasty treat.

For the perennial entertainer: Refresh his stash of playthings to show off to company. Ask Santa to wrap up a BarkBox full of squeakers and plush toys; prancing is bound to ensue.

For the (water) drinking buddy: Show gratitude for your buddy's companionship at quitting time by putting a premium tug toy under the tree. It's the ultimate in doggie stress relief.

Something else to wag a tail at? Ten percent of the company's profits are donated to dogs in need.

Now that's worth rolling over for.
