    The pet food storage container

    Promising review: "We have two dogs, one over 80 lbs and one under 15 lbs. We had been looking for a food storage solution that helps us with both dogs. The bottom portion holds a 24-lb bag of food for our big dog, and the top portion holds a little more than a 6-lb bag for our little one. Especially being on wheels, this is going to work great for us." —Jake0875

    Price: $24.99 (originally $31.99; available in five colors)

    2. A double door wire dog crate that will make crate training your pup a breeze. It has a divider panel that's perfect for growing dogs and a secure latch ensuring security for you and your pet.

    Promising review: "My dog was so happy to see this once we had it together. She is only 5 months old and as soon after I got it together she jumped right into it. She outgrew her other one fast and she loves the extra room. My son loves that if he needs to he can get in it with her if she gets scared of anything. She has even stopped using the bathroom in it. She was peeing in the other one even though she had just gone out. She didn't have enough room. Best money spent." —Tasha392

    Price: $37.79+ (originally $41.99; available in four sizes)

    3. A four-step pet staircase so any pup can have access to the bed, couch, or other high surfaces (no matter their age or health). This is perfect for elderly pets that have trouble getting on and off of furniture or small, clumsy puppies.

    The four-step pet staircase in tan

    Promising review: "We bought a new bed that is about 30 inches tall. We have two dachshunds and were concerned about them hurting themselves from jumping. It took a bit of training and coaxing to get the younger dog (age 1) to use the step. She now flies up and down the step. Occasionally she jumps off of the bed when she gets excited. The older dog (age 11) is still working on using the step. It's not as easy for him, but he will get there. The step is well made with carpet on the steps to provide traction." —jpr1104

    Price: $59.99 (originally $119.99; available in two colors)

    4. A pack of Teenie Greenies that are perfect for smaller dogs that could use a little freshening up of their breath without all the fuss of trying to chew a toy as big as their heads.

    The pack of teenie greenies

    Promising review: "Our vet recommended Greenies and Smart Biscuits after our dog developed gum problems and had several teeth removed because of it. We have two dogs and give each one Greenies and one Smart Biscuit after each meal to help keep their teeth clean, and at the last vet visit they both got a clean bill of teeth and gum health. Both dogs run for the cabinet right after they eat; THEY ABSOLUTELY LOVE THEM. We've had no digestive problems either." —Misty2465

    Price: $4.98+ (originally $6.64+; available in six sizes)

    Price: $11.69+ (originally $12.99+; available in three sizes and two colors)

    Promising review: "This product is absolutely amazing! I seriously was so blown away that I thought it must be using some kind of magic. No odor at all. I have two for two cats and they go at least three weeks before I have to change them, and even then it's just because of the look of the litter, not the smell. Hardly any tracking or cleanup at all. Super easy cleanup. I got my dad to buy one for his cats and he loves it too, so I'm buying him one more for Christmas...I really can't say enough good about this product. It's astounding how well it works and how much easier it made things." —Cracknell97

    Price: $139.95 (originally $154.99)

    The stain and odor eliminator

    Promising review: "I've been using Rocco & Roxie stain and odor eliminator for years and it's never failed me! From dog urine stains to spilled wine, this has been able to destroy the toughest stains and odors. I had a carpet stain in my apartment that was there for almost two years and this solution helped get rid of it! A must-have for new and long-time pet owners. It's a household essential." —NWDogDad

    Price: $19.99 (originally $29.99)

    The car seat cover

    The elevated pet feeder

    Price: $29.99+ (available in three sizes)

    The pack of puppy training treats

    Promising review: "My 3-month-old boxer loves these treats. My husband and I continue to use them for diligent training and we break them in half so we don't go through the bags so quickly. Ruby has been doing excellently with learning new commands because she gets rewarded with these! I just bought five new bags today of assorted flavors!" —RubysMomy

    Price: $3.99 (originally $6.99; available in two flavors)

    11. A ball launcher toy for the dog who loves to run and play fetch. This provides great bonding time for you and your pet and will definitely work to tire them out.

    The ball launcher toy

    Promising review: "Big plus is this Chuckit handles a standard tennis ball rather than a custom size since we mostly find (and lose) free balls around the off-lead lake we walk at. Also, not hard on older elbows or shoulders like the longest Chuckit can be after a few days of consistent use." —PetScott

    Price: $8.95+ (originally $10.95)

    12. A cat window sill bed, because your feline friends deserve just as much love and special treatment as your canines. They'll love looking out the window and having a cozy place to curl up so much that it'll be their new favorite spot.

    The cat window sill bed

    Promising review: "My cats are picky with laying on things. Have bought many toys for them to enjoy, but they practically wait their turn to lay on this in the window. I've been convinced to order another one now. My husband attached it to the window sill with screws, so not sure how the Velcro would hold up. But my cats love this product. Looks so comfy, some days I wish I was a cat." —Fujikitty

    Price: $26.99 (originally $39.99)

    13. A Swiffer Heavy Duty Pet wet pad refills so you can keep your house kempt and tidy. Pop one on your Swiffer to prevent pet dander and odors from taking control of your home.

    The wet pet swiffer cloth refill pack

    Promising review: "We have tried all sorts of more expensive specialty products to clean up cat urine and this one works better than the rest. I wish I could buy it as a hand wipe version to wipe down the sides of the litter box." —farls

    Price: $5.99 for 10

    14. A pet tote for when you want to travel with your fuzzy friend without all the fuss. It features a zipper top, removable liner, and mesh sides so your pet can have proper ventilation and you can do an easy cleanup in case there's an accident.

    gray tote with brown handles

    Promising review: "This bag is perfect for my 6-pound puppy. I got it when he was 4 pounds and it’s perfect. So many bags are too large or tall for my small dog. And I searched!! This is roomy for him but not as tall, so it is good if you have a toy size dog or small puppy. The inside has orange and white stripes. It’s very cute and stylish. The pic doesn’t do it justice. It also has two pockets in front and a long pocket in the back. Better than most bags, which don’t have pockets. There’s mesh zip-top and mesh on each end so my puppy can look out. Also better for hot days. I do not think this is airline-approved. However, it’s patio approved. I get a lot of use from this carrier. More than the other bags I have that are too long/tall or bulky." —Vallrey

    Price: $44.99

    15. An aquarium scrubber that will make the icky task of cleaning your fish task way less frustrating. It removes all the algae from the sides of the tank without scratching surfaces and gives you a reasonable distance from the gunk.

    the scrubber

    The pack of dog flea and tick treatment for medium dogs

    Promising review: "I use these on my pug and Mini Schnauzer. When applied on time, I do not see fleas on my pets. I also appreciate that it keeps other pesky bugs off of them." —Jordy P

    Price: $28.99 for the version for medium dogs (originally $39.99)

    17. A cat scratcher toy that will provide a much needed respite for your furniture. It's a two-in-one scratching pad and a toy ball to provide your cat with maximum entertainment.

    Price: $19.99

    dogs running in the red booties on sand and snow

    Promising review: "We walk our boxer in the mornings and evenings and with the snow starting to come down, his paws were suffering. He doesn't like to be dressed, so I have never tried boots for him, I figured he would just pull them off. He is a tough dog, but finally today he had enough and would not take another step. Heart. Broken. I immediately googled PetSmart's inventory, and these were highest rated, so I went on a whim and got them. The PetSmart employee was awesome and helped me choose the right size (medium is perfect for a 72-pound Boxer). He did the token high-knees walk while he felt them out, and then we were off! Not a care in the world! So happy he can enjoy his walks again!" —Boxer Fam

    Price: $12+ (originally $17.99+; available in seven sizes)

    19. A travel water bottle, because if you're constantly on the go with your pet, you'll need to ensure their needs are met and hydration is a key one. It's super simple to use and will make hikes and walks way easier to manage.

    The blue water bottle

    Promising review: "This water bottle/bowl allows us to go for one-hour walks early in the morning. The Phoenix area weather is normally quite warm this time of the year. We can easily get three or four water breaks for our Schnoodle by using this bottle/bowl. That keeps him hydrated and happy." —doggiedaddy7

    Price: $19.99

    20. A pack of dog waste bags for the person who considers poop-scooping the worst part of pet ownership. It features handles and an extra thick lining so you can stay as far away as possible from the icky stuff.


    Promising review: "Tie handles make closing this very easy. Thick, roomy, and don't tear. Best I've tried." —Maggieme

    Price: $11.99

    21. A cat drinking fountain so your cat can get the hydration they need by finding entertainment in a water source. It's a great way to keep cats interested and make a game out of drinking enough water.

    The cat drinking fountain

    Promising review: "My 20-year-old cat, Anthony, was not drinking water as well and getting constipated. I brought this hoping he would like the free-flowing clean water as he loves to take sips from the bathtub drip. As soon as I plugged it in, he saw the flowing water and he drank like never before. Also, he doesn’t have to bend down as he is having hip issues. Overall a nice design, quiet and easy to assemble and clean. No dirty water with cat hairs and this has a three-system filter to keep clean." —PetAnthony

    Price: $27.99 (originally $29.99)

    22. A pet bucket booster seat that will make transporting your pet to new places as easy as placing them in their car seat. It's super cushy so your pup can take a nap in the back seat.

    Promising review: "I have three little dogs (toy Chihuahua, teacup Chihuahua, and a toy Schnauzer/Yorkie mix) and they love to ride in the car. I know they are safe while riding in the car now and they can see out the window. It even has a spot to put the optional 12V heater for those freezing cold Indiana mornings. I love it and they really do as well." —PetSmart Customer

    Price: $69.99+ (originally $117.99+; available in two colors and two sizes)

    23. A Furminator brush so you can get to your dog's undercoat before it leaves a trail of fur around the house. It'll make grooming a way more simple process by cutting out the middle man — say goodbye to the days of waiting for loose hair to fall as your pup sheds their winter coat.

    The Furminator

    Promising review: "We gave it a try and love it! We should have bought it years ago. All other de-shedding combs can’t compare to the results of this product. We have one happy dog." —Rockodog

    Price: $31.95+ (originally $44.99)

    24. A reflective dog harness that will make taking walks late at night feel much more secure for both you and your pup. Plus, it's super adjustable so your pup will be able to use this harness from puppyhood into adulthood.

    The paw pad shield wax

    Promising review: "Love this product, used on my rescue whose paws were so dry and cracked. Put on every time we went out for our walks, especially in the snow and it was very helpful giving him protection from the snow, ice, and salt. His paws have come along way and are not as dry and cracked. So glad I found this product and highly recommend it." —Kobe A

    Price: $8.99 (originally $9.99)
