    1. An adorable hide-and-seek squirrel toy that will keep your dog entertained for hours as they "hunt" for the squeaky squirrels hidden inside.

    Promising review: "My Chihuahua absolutely loves this. We fill it with squirrels and he pulls them out and safe guards his riches but he loves to play the game over and over (I may need to get one that fits more squirrels!!). He is a toy lover so I wasn't sure how he would do on this but playing hide and seek as well as playing with me to get the squirrels back in is actually fun and he loves it. These are perfect for those pups who just need to be doing something all the time." —Rachael

    Get it from Amazon for $10.39 (available in four sizes).

    2. An adjustable no-pull pet harness for the puppy who constantly tugs on their leash during walks. This will keep them comfortable and keep you from stressing out every time you take them out.

    Promising review: "We have a 75-pound pitbull who isn't the WORST puller ever, but when he does pull, he's pretty strong. The reviews on the Rabbitgoo harness were great, so I decided to give it a try. I measured Beau's chest and purchased the size large based on his 28-inch chest size. It is a perfect fit for him. It'll take some adjusting on my part to get a more snug fit, but the measurements were spot on. Once adjusted, it goes on somewhat easily over his head and then the hooks are connected. Voila." —My2Cents

    Get it from Amazon for $17.98+ (available in sizes S–XL and 14 colors).

    3. A cat perch designed especially for adventurous cats who love to get as high as up as they can. Now you won't have to worry about them climbing on your bookshelves and knocking things over.

    Promising review: "Perfect perch! Our Himalayan tried out her new perch right away and loves it! We have two vistas near each other so she can jump from one to the other. The wood quality is obvious and mounting was easy, however be careful to use a stud finder to drill into a strong place on the wall. Drywall will not hold the weight of the perch plus a jumping cat. A really high-quality product! We might get another!" —Tiffany L.

    Get it from Tuft + Paw for $199 (available in two colors).

    4. A pet-grooming brush that helps prevent shedding by gently removing dead hair and leaving behind a healthy, shiny coat., / Via

    Promising review: "This brush is perfect and worth it. I have spent an arm and a leg buying one from the pet store and it doesn't compare to this brush. I have a border collie/lab mix so she sheds and sheds, and her fur is awkward and use to take an hour or two to brush with our old brush. This brush has cut the time in half. It gets so much fur and my dog actually enjoyed being brushed and didn't try to run away like with our old one. Her fur feels amazing afterwards." —Mr.&Mrs. Rosales

    Get it from Amazon for $15.97.

    Promising review: "Easy to install, plush and works great. Looks and fits perfectly in our car. Our Pom is very happy traveling in it and can both look out the window and if he wants, take a nap. We have to be sure to look in back, as we sometimes almost forget he’s there." –Guitarman

    Get it from Chewy for $76.99.

    6. A set of ridiculously cool-looking dog toys from Wild One that are made out of 100% natural rubber. They're designed to stand up to strong chompers and the color and designs are so aesthetically pleasing, you won't even mind when your pup leaves them on your living room floor.

    brown and black cat playing with purple, blue and yellow cat toy

    Promising review: "My cat and I are both obsessed. The bird is even cuter in person. The string is soft and thick. It clearly will not easily break or fray, which is important for me because, for whatever reason, when it comes to wands, my cat is just as interested in the string as whatever is on the end of it. The bird is a great size (perfect for snagging but not too bulky), and the ribbons on the end are clearly quality. This has quickly become one of her favorite toys! Can't recommend enough!" —peaches

    Get it from Chewy for $2.98 (also available in purple).

    8. A rechargeable LED pet collar made to keep your dog safe and seen during nighttime walks. You'll be so happy you have this when the sun starts setting at 5 p.m. in the winter.


    Promising review: "My pit bull is all black and we walk 2 miles after I get home from work. Even though I carry a flashlight, we have spooked many people on our evening walks. I thought this was the perfect solution. This collar is fantastic! It's bright enough for people to see her from a distance but not too bright that she is bothered by it. It has three settings, although I only use the solid light setting. I use a harness as well so I don't have to attach the leash to the collar. I also love that it's rechargeable and I don't have to mess with battery replacements. I would definitely recommend & already have recommended this product to many other dog owners. Love it!" —Kristine Livingston

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes 2XS–XL and six colors).

    9. A heavy duty 76-inch cat tree because let's be real — your cat rules your household, and now they can lord over your living room like the king or queen they are. It also provides so much room for them to work out their energy, fight off boredom, and get all their scratches out.

    Promising review: "I was looking for a cat tree that looks big enough to handle big grown adults. Most cat trees I saw featured young little kittens in their pictures and you can tell many cat trees are just too small to hold an adult cat comfortably. This cat tree is perfect. The size is great — so roomy and spacious! And so sturdy, the quality is amazing. Considering all of this, the price is unbeatable. I would recommend this cat tree in a heartbeat! My kitties love it!" –Leob

    Get it from Chewy for $127.99 (available in two colors).

    10. An adjustable lizard leash with adorable wings so you can let your reptile explore outside without getting lost. And it would make a perfect Halloween costume!,

    Promising review: "The smallest size collar leash was perfect for my frilled lizard. Easy to put on. Much easier to remove. Secure. The leash has many snap ons that's very useful in some situations." —Jon

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    11. A memory foam dog bed made for dogs with pesky joint problems. It can accommodate a dog up to 125 pounds, so even the largest of breeds can fit comfortably on this bed.

    Promising review: "I bought this sofa pet bed for my little "Cookie," a Pom/Shih-Tzu mix weighing about 10 pounds. She recently chewed up her old bed beyond use and have been sleeping on our sofa. I purchased a medium sofa and the size was perfect for her. Upon opening, she immediately went on to try it out! She's able to spread out in any which direction she wants and still with room left over. Now I find her sleeping on the sofa bed and not our actual sofa. She's an older dog so hopefully the orthopedic foam base will give her extra support and comfort." –CTN412

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in five sizes and 14 colors).

    12. Or this elevated dog bed to keep your dog cool when relaxing outside or to provide a place for your dog to escape to when the Roomba kicks on.,

    Promising review: "Perfect in every way. Took five minutes to put together. We were looking for a bed that was similar to what we trained 'go to bed' with in obedience class. This is so light we can flip it upside, put it in the car, and take it with us anywhere. I can move it from room to room for 'lay-stay' practice. The bed part is very thick and durable. Our pup really likes it. For reference, we got the medium and we have a 25-pound Jack Russell/Australian Shepherd mix." —Penderwall

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and two colors).

    13. An adorable water fountain with a flower on top so your cat can sip on freshly filtered water in the cutest way possible.

    Promising review: "I have two Savannah kitties and neither of them would drink out of a bowl of water. When I saw this, I decided to give it a shot. This one is absolutely perfect!!! The flower attachment is the perfect amount of water for them to both drink from and it's silent unless it needs more water or the filter needs to be changed. (Which is a welcome reminder!!) I've had it over a month and it's never had that coating of slime the others I've used had. The first time I changed the filter I was amazed at what it looked like which tells me it really does what it's supposed to. If you're on the fence about this one, don't be! If my babies will drink from it chances are yours will too! I highly, highly recommend this fountain!!" —Shopaholic1321

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (available in two colors).

    14. Or this multi-tier drinking fountain perfect for cats with any joint issues or aches and pains — the raised tier is a great option for them to drink from while keeping their neck in a comfortable position.

    Promising review: "Our little dog, who is 15 years old, was starting to have trouble seeing and drinking from her normal water bowl, so we ordered this to see if it would help! It is perfect! Not only is it higher than a bowl on the floor, which helps her neck pain, but the water also moves and she loves drinking from the top part. This is great for an aging pet!" —Happypetparent

    Get it from Chewy for $29.95.

    15. A cat toy tower with spinning balls that will keep your cat occupied all day. Even the most disinterested of cats will find joy thanks to this!,

    Promising review: "This toy is so cute and easy to put together. My kitten loves it. I needed to get something to keep her busy while I do school work and this definitely does that. I also wanted a toy that helps her learn. Being that she is a kitten she needs new toys and stimulation often to help with brain development. This toy is perfect for all of that." —Natalie

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

    16. A bird bath so your small to medium birdie can splash around whenever they want to. It can lock onto the sides of their cage but is also easily removable for cleanup days.

    Birds / Chewy, DobieMom25 / Chewy

    Promising review: "I've owned my budgies for a little over two years and they have never seen them show ANY interest in bathing and I always thought that was so weird. I’d offer different ways, but nothing worked. I got this bird bath and hooked it into their cage and they used it within five minutes of it being there. I was floored! It's the perfect size for them and I am very pleased with my purchase. Highly recommend!" —Sara

    Get it from Chewy for $9.99.

    17. A cat cave that will not only give your feline a comfy new home, but it'll also be a beautiful new centerpiece in your living room. It's made out of 100% wool, which will stand up to your cat's sharp claws.

    Promising review: "Worth every penny! We just had to move my mom and her two little dogs into our new home due to her health issues. I knew her two dogs would be urinating on our new carpet in her bedroom. I bought a black light to check and sure enough I found several spots. After researching and reading tons of reviews I purchased this product. So happy I did!! If you follow the instructions, it works perfect!! Spots even pass the black-light test after cleaning!!!" —lora jauregui

    19. A tall scratching post with a sturdy base so your cat can scratch their little heart out without it ever tipping over. It's made out of woven sisal, which holds up better than carpeted scratching posts.,

    Promising review: "Easily the best scratching post on the planet. This scratching post is therefore absolutely perfect. I've bought two of these in the past five years, and I can attest to their perfection (I'm still trying to figure out how to turn it upside down for another few years of use). This is exactly what a cat would invent if a cat could invent the perfect scratching post. It's tall enough that they can stretch, it's sisal rope that won't end up all over your floor (not that your inventor cat cares about that), and it's sturdy and won't wobble or tip over or otherwise stress your cat. My biggest fat cat can't topple this thing if he tries (and don't think he doesn't!)." –Deborah M. Kelly

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99+ (available in two colors).

    20. A pack of leakproof poop bags in case you've been burned one too many times when using a flimsy plastic bag to pick up your dog's poop.,

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these.. I used to only like using Mutt Mitt (which are great...very expensive). I can’t stand seeing dog waste anywhere my dog and I go whether it’s in the residential neighborhood or local park we love to play I pick up every pile I see..ranging from 5 to 25 per time I take my dog out. Anyways these poop bags are absolutely perfect because I don’t feel like I need to double up like I have done with thin and flimsy feeling bags. I’d 100% recommend these doggy waste bags to anyone who is considering them! The perforated part where you tear the bags from one another is easy to tear! I've never had a struggle or a bag rip." —cierra

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in a pack of 120 or 270 bags) or Subscribe & Save for $6.64/month.

    Hand holding the nail clipper

    Promising review: "For years I have been afraid of hurting my babies when I cut their nail but now I cannot take her to the groomer because of concern over COVID-19. I watched a few YouTube videos about cutting their nails and I learned a lot! These clippers are great. I really wasn’t afraid to cut them and she just laid there! I of course was a wreck but she was a perfect little girl. The only problem I had was that she wanted to kiss my face the entire time. Got to work on that...The nail cutter is perfect. It is sharp, easy and quick to do. One tip I learned is that trimming the hair around the nails helps a lot. I highly recommend this product. Excellent quality. You can’t go wrong." —Bama Mama

Highly recommend for all dog of all ages. Great for training and occupying your pup." –Kristopher

    Promising review: "Love, love, love. This cover is perfect for us. My baby girl uses the furniture like I do, sometimes she comes in a little wet from the dew and before I can catch her she jumps on the loveseat before I wipe her feet. This cover saves my loveseat from any wet or dirt. It was so easy to put on, very clear instructions and stays put. I would highly recommend this product." —Craftyb

    Promising review: "I was getting fed up with all the plastic scoopers, as the holes were way too big to pick up the little pieces, and the handle would break too easily. I decided to try this one, and I am so glad I did! This thing is amazing! If you are in the market, I would buy this one for sure! Nice rubber grip handle, made of metal and not plastic, and the holes are perfect for getting those annoying little nuggets! Never thought I would be so excited to use a cat litter scoop!"—Layluke

    Promising review: "Our Zoey was a fast eater. By fast I mean her food was gone in less than a minute. As she aged, we noticed her vomiting and belching more, in part because she was eating so fast. Once we purchased this bowl it forced her to slow down. It was perfect for our needs. She is enjoying her food, has stopped belching after eating and we have not had any vomiting issues." —Robyn

    Get it from Chewy for $6.93+ (available in two sizes).

The joints in his hind legs got so swollen he could barely walk and could not get up on the couch, bed, or his favorite cat perch anymore. With these steps he is able to do all those things again. He took to them right away. The steps also fold up into about 6 inches high so they can be stored anywhere and are perfect for travel. They are lightweight, but very stable. They are so perfect I purchased a second set of stairs so one could stay next to his cat perch at all times." —bansheemay

    Promising review: "We have two kittens, about 9 months old now, and they have been so intrigued by the outside world, so we got a harness to try. We only got one because we wanted to test it first. The medium fits perfectly and the babies love it so much we will be getting a second so they can both explore together. It adjusts perfectly and as they grow, they have plenty of room so they won’t grow out of it too fast. The leash is perfect, too — gives her a little distance and stretches but not too much that she’s out of reach. We only take them into the fenced backyard because I’m paranoid, now when we go out without them, our one kitten meows to come out with us LOL. We absolutely loveeee getting to explore with our new harness!" —Heather

    Promising review: "These are so perfect! I have a small dog who has allergies and has to take half of a Benadryl twice daily. The treats easily accommodate the size of pill she has to take, and I can easily see a capsule fitting in there as well. My dog loves the flavor. They are very soft which makes it easier on the little one as she is older and missing some teeth. This is the second bag of these I've purchased and I will continue to buy them. It makes it much easier to get her medicine into her system. Sixty treats last her a month, so I find them very affordable. It certainly makes my life easier!" —Regina
