Excellent Magazine

By Doglover

from So Cal

I have subscribed for many years to Bark. The articles are thoughtful and writers are articulate.I love the artistic and literary bent. This is not Dog Fancy. Bark magazine is published from Berkeley, CA, so it attracts a very different reader group.

What a snore.

By d-o-g

from LA, CA

I subscribed to this magazine because of so many popular reviews and had never seen the magazine until I purchased a year subscription. Not going to do that again and I have been inundated with renewal notices to the level of annoying. Fido Friendly Magazine is much more of an interesting read.

At last an intelligent animal book

By patrialinda

from Naples, Fl.

I had to read the magazine from cover to cover, even the shorts on each writer. Each one an expert in their field. The articles covered everything about dogs, i particularly enjoyed the article regarding their nutrition and the war going on with the food companies. At last a magazine that doesn't focus on a particular breed, but on love and care we should have for our Buddies no matter what breed they are ;) I truly loved this magazine, and will be a faithful subscriber for a long, long time.

My Favorite Magazine

By Marilyn

from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

The Bark magazine is my favorite magazine. It is informative, it is funny and it is delightful. I can relax and unwind with the awesome stories told about "dogs and their people." ;) Bark is well written and I enjoy the huge selection of advertisement in the back of the magazine. I have learned a great deal about all kinds of dogs, and the people, places and things connected with these amazing animals. This magazine was a gift to me from my partner and not only will I continue to subscribe to Bark, I will add to my subscription, a good friend of mine, so that she too, can experience this one of a kind, wonderful magazine!

Bark Magazine Subscription Review

Video Transcript
Hi, I’m Christen from,
No one may truly understand just how special your dog is to you, but if a magazine could, it would be Bark. That’s because it focuses on the relationships between humans and dogs, whether they are beloved pets or service animals.
While each issue carries regular features about training tips, dog behavior, book reviews and travel advice, Bark magazine is more dedicated to the joy that dogs bring to our lives.
Some dog magazines are all about purebreds, physical characteristics and showing techniques. But Bark magazine knows that all of our furry friends are special, so you’ll find plenty of pups regardless of pedigree acknowledged inside. Even better, a lot of the magazine’s advertising supports shelters and rescue organizations, as well as spay and neuter programs.
Published six times a year, the magazine covers tales about how we love our dogs and what they do for us as pets and in professional capacities. Among these are inspirational stories about service animals, like those that work as sheep herders, as part of rescue squads or even with game wardens.
Some readers have called Bark magazine the NPR or the New Yorker for dog owners and dog lovers, and with such entertaining essays and engaging content, they may well be right.
Thanks for watching my video review of Bark magazine. Be sure and check out our current magazine subscription deals!
