    1. A zip-up raincoat with a removable hood so your pup stays comfortable and dry wherever your day takes you, and no matter what the weather has in store. Plus, just imagine all the cute pictures you can take.

    Promising review: "I put this on like a T-shirt and then raise the zipper and snap it. This coat covers his tummy; the coat gets the mud and grit, and the coat is easy to rinse off. I am very happy with the fit because it does cover from head to tail nicely." –Katherine Howard

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in six sizes and five colors).

    2. A Petmate ProValu double-door wire crate that can be buckled into cars while driving to your destination and used as a safe space for your pet once you arrive. The sturdy kennel has a five-point precision lock system so your pet won't be able to wiggle their way out.

    Promising review: "It is impossible to transport my cat anywhere in a carrier. He’s a sweet cat but turns into a demon in the carrier trying to get out. Last time he actually made his teeth bleed by pulling on the carrier door so vigorously. I thought I would give the crate a try thinking that he would be calmer if he could see out around him. It was a miracle fix. Two totally different cats! My cat was great in this crate. He didn’t even meow. It was the perfect size for him. I love that it has two doors (one on the top and on the side), so you can choose which makes the kitty more comfortable. I have no idea why this cat is so much happier in this crate than a carrier, but it made a huge difference for us!! Highly recommend!" –Douglas F. Pendleton II

    Get it from Amazon for $38.99+ (available in six sizes).

    3. A dog life jacket to keep your pup save and buoyant on any water adventures you take them on. Designed for beginner, intermediate, and expert dog swimmers, this brightly-colored vest will keep your dog's head above water and will ensure you can see them from anywhere.

    Promising review: "Great life jacket! I ordered this for my mini long-haired dachshund, who tries hard but is not a strong swimmer. He's able to stay afloat with this vest (we're still working on keeping his head above water, but the neckpiece on this vest helps a lot)." –Kristina Circelli

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in five sizes and three colors).

    4. A harness and matching leash so your pup can match on their jaunt around town. Where the harness has a mesh liner and is super soft, the leash is durable and works well to lead small and medium-sized dogs.

    Promising review: "This was perfect for my puppy. Training him on a leash with a collar put tons of stress on him, once we put the harness on him he was walking on the leash within a few short hours. It is very cute on him and also very comfortable. My puppy has lots of fur so finding a harness that was easy to put on and not pull on his fur was very important to us. This harness was perfect. It is padded but allows room to breathe through the fabric." —Bobbie Sanchez

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in three sizes and four colors).

    5. A bright blue dog leash that will give your dog extra style but not as much room to run off when walking them around town. The 5-foot leash is designed for small, medium, and large dogs and is made of climbing rope, so it's extra durable.

    Promising review: "I wanted to wait a bit before writing a review, so I could get a good idea of how well this leash works. I'm pleased to say that this is one of the best leashes I've ever used! I'm currently loose-leash training a six-month lab mix who has never been trained to walk on a leash, or even wear a collar/harness. Paired with her starter harness, this leash has been incredibly effective to gently, but firmly redirect her to walk alongside me, and has just the right amount of tension. It also gives her enough slack to let her explore without having the leash pulled taunt constantly. It is comfortable to hold, and after a while of successfully walking her beside me, I forget it's on my wrist. I will definitely buy this leash again, if this one ever wears out!" –Candice R

    Get it from Amazon for $9.89+ (available in two sizes and nine colors).

    6. A paw soother stick to keep your pet's pads as comfy as possible. Whether you're camping, hiking, or simply trotting around down, this soothing stick will heal their achy paws so they can adventure in comfort.

    Clear plastic Paw Soother stick

    Promising review: "My dog has hyperkeratosis of her paws and after researching, I read about the paw soother and decided to purchase it and give it a try! It completely reversed her paws to being soft again! After putting it on, I normally put her shoes on until it completely absorbs so she doesn’t leave sticky paw prints everywhere. I also don’t have to worry about her licking her paws afterward since it’s all-natural. Love it!" –Helen

    Get it from Amazon for $17.95.

    7. A Petmate two-door pet crate so you can load your fur baby in from the front or top. The sturdy crate is designed for small pets and is airline-approved.

    Promising review: "Having just adopted brother and sister kittens that are so adorable they deserve nothing but the best, I chose the Petmate two door top load pet kennel. When the two kennels arrived I felt like I had won the lottery. There are so many to choose from and I wanted one that was safe, secure and attractive and the Petmates checked the box on each level. To get the 5-month-old kittens used to the kennels, I put them on the floor, side by side, with the front doors open. It only took minutes for them to look them over and decide to walk inside. The side-by-side kennels reminded me of travel trailers (which they are in the end) so we call the space they occupy the 'Trailer Park.' The kittens are often in their 'trailer homes' napping and I feel sure when I need to take them to the vet's they won't be as spooked as if it was brand-new. I heartily recommend you consider this product and the bed as well." –$33.73+ (available in two sizes and four colors).

    8. A floating squeaky toy to keep pups entertained on any water adventures. The Frisbee-like toy the perfect size for all pups.

    Promising review: "Two giant thumbs up for this floating dog toy! Our dog, and practically every single other dog at the beach (lol, yes), is in love with this toy! Endless fun for our big guy between it squeaking and floating." —Boca375

    Get it from Amazon for $7.49 (available in three designs).

    9. A reversible dog harness for pups that can be a bit more bonkers—or for those who simply don't find collars to be comfortable. In addition to being a great safety measure while on the go, these printed harnesses serve as a little outfit for your fur baby, too.

    Promising review: "My doggos are really enjoying these harnesses. I believe it is because of the padding. Their other harnesses didn't have the padding and after a while, both dogs didn't want me to put the harnesses on. So I wondered if the harnesses were hurting them. I got these specifically because they are padded. The dogs seem to be just fine with these, they are looking forward to going on their walks again." —joysjane

    Get it from Amazon for $32 (available in five sizes and eight colors).

    10. A dog carrier backpack to tote your pet from point A to point B. The water-resistant backpack is great for small dogs and small or medium cats. It has a spot for their head to fit comfortably out of while keeping them safely strapped to your back.

    Promising review: "We bought this backpack for our Yosemite/Mammoth hiking trip with the dogs. Here are the highlights: It's really well-made. It's comfortable to wear – even lugging around a furry rascal. I love the water bottle pockets on the side and the laptop pocket inside. Our 13 lb Chihuahua fits in it perfectly and loves looking out the flap. The Chihuahua is just as happy being fully zipped in when transporting him." –Zazzie Perez

    Get it from Amazon for $149.99 (available in two colors).

    11. A portable travel pet mat so your pup has a nice place to sleep and relax wherever your adventure takes you. The cozy bed folds up nice and small so it's great for all sorts of adventures, as it won't take up loads of space in your luggage.

    Promising review: "This is a great blanket for camping with dogs or just outdoor use! Big enough for large dogs (American Bulldog in the photo is 70+lbs) but small and light enough for backpacking with your pup! The blanket fluffs up when pulled out of its storage bag and is made of durable fabric. My only complaint: I left it out in the rain thinking it was waterproof. It is NOT waterproof, just water-resistant. It does dry out quickly after getting soaked, though." –Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $32.49 (available in two colors).

    12. A precious Ewok costume for folks who want their pup to get in on the Halloween festivities. With this adorable outfit, your pup will be able to dress up and wow the town with you come October.

    Promising review: "This is an adorable and great fit for my little Ewok! The body of the costume is soft. It attaches around the body with velcro and his legs fit in the sleeves. It fits well — not tight. The headpiece is also a good fit — it adjusts with a drawstring that I'm going to play around with a bit so that it stays around his head better. Overall, I'm very pleased with my purchase." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in four sizes).

    13. A precious little tracksuit to dress up your pup for your day out. Whether you're going to brunch, on a jog, or just out and about, this Adidas-inspired tracksuit is sure to turn heads.

    Promising review: "Our pup was quite the attraction on a weekend outing. Everyone loved it." —Shannon O'Dell

    Get it from Amazon for $10.28+ (available in 10 sizes and 10 colors).

    14. A booster seat for your pet that will keep them safe and secure while you drive. The elevated design makes it so they can happily look out the window along the way. And, since it comes with three stabilizing attachments, it offers an ultra-smooth ride for pets who typically get carsick.

    Promising review: "Works great and seems to be made of high-quality/durable materials. Sadie the Yorkie loves it as it allows her to see out of the passenger window and windshield of my Jeep Patriot without having to stand on the seat as she used to. It's adjustable so you can adjust the strap allowing it to be higher, or lower depending on you or your pup's preference. I purchased the medium size, Sadie is about 6 lbs and has plenty of room to lay in it, or stand on all fours within it. My only complaint is that I was not able to choose a color and received what I believe is the standard brown color. I would prefer a gray to match my car's interior." –Brandon Jackson

    Get it from Amazon for $34.95+ (available in three sizes).

    15. A set of four floral bandanas so you can always spot your pup from afar. Plus, the patterned neckties are sure to earn compliments from your friends and family.

    Promising review: "Beautiful! Very nice quality and pretty sturdy. When I opened the package I dropped one on the floor and my girl started chewing at it. Not sure how long she had it before I noticed, tugged it away, and it was still intact and not frayed or ripped! Obviously don't purposely let them chew on it, but I was impressed because she can pop the seam of a new toy in seconds." —Amazon Customer

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $14.99 (available in two sizes).

    16. A pet ramp to give your cat, dog, bunny, etc. safe and easy access into your car. It's adjustable and can hold up to 400 pounds despite only weighing 13 pounds itself.

    Promising review: "This is perfect for my 120-pound German Shepherd. His joints get sore after running all day and jumping up in the back seat of my truck is a little rough on him at times. The grip feels like sandpaper but I'm sure it will be effective even when wet. The rubber feet make it very stable even with a heavy dog going up and down. It is also very stable using lengths in between the max and minimum length. It's nice not having a fixed length because of the different areas it will be used to get him in and out. I didn't see that many reviews of people using it for the back seat of a truck or something higher than a car so I hope the picture helps." –Dustin

    Get it from Amazon for $86.73.

    17. A saddleback harness that comes in super handy on long walks and hikes. The spacious bag fits on your pup's back and can store their treats, poop bags, water, and more.

    Promising review: "I love this little bag. It's perfect for my dog. It holds all her stuff for day or weekend trips and she loves carrying it. She is extremely excitable and I thought with three straps I was going to have issues convincing her to get into it. It's actually extremely simple to put on and the three straps are great for distributing the weight so she doesn't have issues with it rubbing or pulling her down. The mesh keeps her ventilated and cool. For the price, it's hard to beat!" –Celestial

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+.

    18. A pack of disposable pet waste bags so you can always be courteous and pick up after your fur baby. These are made with baking soda and feature a fresh scent to minimize any odors coming out of the bag.

    Promising review: "These bags are a perfect size for cleaning out my cats' litter boxes. Also, it does a great job of keeping the smell contained." –JavaDragon

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in three sizes and colors).

    19. A Snuggle Puppy behavioral aid toy to keep your fur baby comfortable wherever you are. Whether they have trouble falling asleep or get anxious in new places, this cozy stuffed critter, which comes with an inner heating pad and life-like heartbeat, will be super comforting for them.

    Promising review: "My pup was separated from her mother way too early and has separation anxiety. I opened this as soon as I got it and she instantaneously passed out on top of it. I already know it was a good purchase." —ashmeg84

    Get it from Amazon for $39.95 (available in five colors).

    20. A bowtie and collar so your doggo can dress up should the occasion call for it. Whether you're taking them with you to a party, wedding, or wherever else, this cute, machine-washable collar will be a nice addition to their collar. Best of all, on days where you'd prefer just their collar, you can slip the bowtie off., Amazon

    Promising review: "Love this collar set! The clip was a bit heavy at first when we first put it on our new baby but she seemed to get used to it pretty quick. We opted to not put the bow on for now but will later on at some point. I love that we have that option. Once she grows out of this size we will defiantly buy her the next size up." –Mommakel

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in six colors and six sizes).

    21. A soothing anxiety jacket for your pup. The comfortable jacket applies gentle, constant pressure to help calm nervous pups — whether it's due to incessant travel, adjusting to a new place, or making it through a fireworks show or loud thunderstorm while out and about with you.

    Promising review: "Got this in a medium for my (very petite) pitbull/Lab mix with noise sensitivity and separation anxiety. I've been putting it on her every morning since the day it arrived because it works better than anything else I've tried. She's finally comfortable and not running back and forth crying, hiding behind the couch, or digging at her neck when something upsets her. It works perfectly." –Su O

    Get it from Amazon for $44.95+ (available in eight sizes and two colors).

    22. A car seat cover that will protect your car while toting your pup's around. The best-selling cover has a hammock silhouette that protects the back of the seat in front of your pup, as well as the front of the seat behind them. Best of all, it's waterproof, so if your pup is wet or dirty, it won't get ruined when they hop in the car.

    Promising review: "Today was the first time I used this. I have a 2017 Ford Escape, it covered the seats completely and as you see I have two nice size dogs. The quality is great. Nice thickness so you really don't have to worry about any dampness or dirt going through. Easy to put in too! I really like it a lot. I think the only small downfall is that the fabric has an odd smell, but I'm sure a little air freshener will help that." –Maria McKinney

    Get it from Amazon for $33.96+ (available in five colors).

    23. A reversible messenger bag specifically designed for carrying around small pups and cats. The cozy bag comes with a security clasp so they won't jump out, too.

    Promising review: "Never thought I’d be 'that person' who goes around with her dog in a purse. Ever. Then I brought home a 6-week-old old Jack Russell Terrier that cannot be left home alone or go potty where stray/strange dogs may have been until she’s fully vaccinated, so here I am. And now I get why I see those people with their dogs in a purse. It’s far more comfortable than I expected. I think the sling shape and the cushioning if the straps make it less stress on the back and shoulders — just make sure you use the leash provided with a harness." –proudpolicewife

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95 (available in five colors).
