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

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
Price: $16.98+ (available in sizes small–XL and 10 colors)
pet-grooming brush that helps prevent shedding by gently removing dead hair and leaving behind a healthy, shiny coat.

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
Promising review: "I bought this obnoxiously cute bed for my kitten. When she was smaller, she loved snuggling with the fruit pillows. Now that she's a little bigger and more playful, she loves to take the pillows out and play with them. The bed is a little on the small side, but it's perfect for what I wanted. It's super cute and I've been very pleased with it." — Amanda
Price: $24.98+ (available in two sizes)
fish tank with an LED rail light that's the perfect size for your home desk. Why not have your fishy friends hang out with you as you work from home?!
Promising review: This aquarium is great! I have one betta fish in it, and it is absolutely perfect. The size and shape are great, very visually appealing and a perfect size, and the small pedestal that it comes with makes a nice base. The black background makes both my plants and fish pop." — Somebody
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 two 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
Price: $17.85+ (available in sizes XXS–XL and seven colors)
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
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/Shitzu 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
Price: $24.99 + (available in five sizes and 21 colors)
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
Price: $20.55+ (available in sizes XS–XL and two colors)
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

retractable dog leash that's tangle-proof, has a hand brake, and is the answer to all of your walking woes.
Promising review: "My little buddy was always wrestling with the leash because it would pull back so hard on his little neck and get caught around his legs. I have found this a 'perfect for small dogs' leash! It has just enough tension to not leave a lot of slack, but it does have a much smaller pull on my dog's neck. It was so obvious on the first use. My dog could even tell the difference, and he is the one that matters. I'm sticking with this brand from now on. The locking mechanism is the easiest by far from all leashes I have tried. He is a 7-pound boy that loves to play around in the yard when the weather allows. Great workmanship makes for the smoothest leash spool I've found and it makes my dog happy!" — Rob Rob GA GA
Price: $12.49+ (available in sizes XS–L and eight colors)
A durable set of
pet steps so your furry friend can safely climb up onto furniture or a bed so they can cuddle up with you. The steps fold down for easy storage when not in use.
Promising review: "I bought this for our 2-year-old old cat Gus Gus. He has a form of arthritis that is hereditary. 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
Price: $39.95+ (available in two sizes and two colors)
stain and odor eliminator that uses enzymes to break down even the toughest, most set-in stains. It's certified safe for humans, pets, and any carpet or rug you use it on.
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

tall scratching post with a sturdy base so their cat 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

A pack of
leakproof poop bags, because 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 at...so I pick up every pile I see..ranging from 5-25 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
Price: $6.99+ (available in a pack of 120 or 270 bags) or Subscribe & Save for $6.64/month
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

dog and cat nail clipper with a safety guard to keep you from overcutting your fur baby's nails. This will keep your pet's nails at a good length in between trips to the groomer.
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
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
Price: $9.69+ (available in two colors)
cactus-shaped cat scratcher so your cat can attack this instead of your couch. Plus: it's so cute it will blend into your living room decor and not stick out like a sore thumb.
Promising review: "This is such a cute purchase! My cats instantly loved it (after they were done investigating the box and bag). This will be perfect in my living room and will hopefully save my furniture." — Josselyn Hernandez
Price: $19.99+ (available in a hanging or standing design)
collapsible dog bowl to take on camping or road trips so your four-legged companion always has a place to drink fresh water and eat their food. It's super easy to wipe down after use, as well.
Promising review: "These were perfect for camping. Compacted down flat for travel, popped open easy for food and water, then washes so easy. Great rubber material. I have them for my Boston Terrier when we go camping. I’m also going to keep one in my glove compartment for any road trips etc." — CassVee
Price: $5.99+ for a set of two (available in two sizes and four colors)
classic Kong toy with a hollow center you can stuff with peanut butter or their favorite treat. Give this to them and sit back and relax while they spend hours getting every last morsel of food out of it.
Promising review: "This is perfect for my puppy! Durable and never leaves me worried that he will tear it apart. Great for smearing peanut butter on the inside to keep him occupied when I leave the house. No sharp edges like bones have, which leave you with a lovely limp when you step on it. Highly recommend for all dog of all ages. Great for training and occupying your pup." – Kristopher
Price: $7.49+ (available in six sizes)
A set of
waterproof booties to protect your pup's paws from rough terrain, hot pavement, and sharp thorns. They're a must-have if you're taking your dog on a hike.
Promising review: "Got these for my dog since he hates walking in the rain. These shoes seemed to be perfect for him. Very sturdy and easy to put on." — Al
Price: $20.99+ (available in five sizes)
And a lightweight
pet stroller great for cats who love to get some fresh air but definitely don't like a leash.
Promising review: "Fantastic pet stroller. Very lightweight, not a lot of bells and whistles but exactly what I wanted. Our shy indoor cat has a blast riding around NYC in it. The front wheels spin a bit but the stroller is so light it is very easy to correct course. I carry the stroller with our cat in it up and down a four story walk-up without issue. The mesh in the front of the stroller is thick enough for our cat to feel safe, yet thin enough that he can see out perfectly and passerby can see in and smile without fail. If you want a high tech pet transporting vehicle, this is not right for you. However, i f you are looking for a simple, straight-forward, casual pet transporter for 15-minute to two-hour walks, this is so perfectly perfect." — Amazon Customer
