    1. A water-resistant, hammock-style Furhaven backseat cover, so you and your pup can take off on your next road trip adventure without worrying about getting mud, drool or anything else on your seats.

    The back seat cover, which attaches to the back of the back seat and the back of the front seat

    Promising review: "I was looking for a 'bridge'-type of cover, and this one fits the bill! My previous car had bench seating in the second row where my dog could move across the back seat to each side of the car. My new car has second row captain's chairs, and my dog seems super uncomfortable being confined to one seat. My new car also has leather seats, and I don't want her to ruin them with her claws. This cover was super easy to install and is sturdy enough to bridge the gap between the two chairs and support her weight when moving across the row. She also wears a harness in the car that connects to the seat belt, and this cover has holes where the seat belts can go through. Highly recommend!" —Natalie

    2. A rainbow hoodie sweatshirt with a built-in poop bag dispenser, because it's the most adorable way to make sure that you never get caught bag-less on a walk.

    FrancoPets/ PetSmart / Via

    Promising review: "My dog is a 60-lb bulldog with a 29-inch chest and the XL fits perfectly! Suits her sunny personality and it’s a soft, comfy material. The waste bag thing is a nice perk, too!" —FrancoPets

    Get it from Petsmart for $7.47+ (available in sizes XS–XL).

    3. A saddle backpack with both zippered and open compartments, for medium and large dogs who love to tag along when you're hiking, camping, or otherwise communing with the great outdoors.

    The saddle backpack, which has a pocket on either side

    Promising review: "I am a huge outdoors person and I try to take my dogs everywhere permitted. This backpack has been unbelievably useful to the point that it's basically a necessity now (if this one ever breaks, I will get another one). This has been so awesome for camping specifically. My dog carries all of her own stuff, such as her food, her water bowl, her waste bags, a toy, her protective goggles, etc. She actually LOVES it — she loves to be included and carry a backpack just like her humans, it gives her a sense of purpose on our backpacking trips especially. You can actually see the excitement on her face when you grab the pack to put it on her, and she stands there nice and patiently for it.

    The pack actually seems quite comfortable. It doesn't seem to shift too much when you balance it appropriately, doesn't rub on her skin anywhere, and it's made of high quality material. We climb mountains with this thing and it holds up perfectly. The zippers are heavy duty, and the D rings are actually made of metal and not plastic. The storage compartments and pockets are perfect in every way."—Matthew H.

    4. A Nylabone puppy teething toy that's softer than bones made for adult dogs, so your itty bitty buddy can teethe safely, without any potential for getting hurt by sharp or hard pieces. As a bonus, the bones also prevent tartar buildup and prevent your pup from teething on you or your couch leg.

    Promising review: "Great toy, especially for teething puppies. My dog had a field day chewing on this toy for hours at a time and it helped with his teething pain! Definitely recommend!" —MSchivi

    Get it from Petsmart for $6.99 (originally $8.89).

    5. A handheld, cordless pet hair vacuum with special upholstery-cleaning tools, because even though you share every single moment with your dog, you don't necessarily want your house to look like it.

    Promising review: "Four furry dogs + new microfiber couch. While the microfiber is great for cleaning up spills, it definitely lets me see how much fur is left behind. I have been through lint rollers, corded hand vacuums and regular vacuums. Nothing hit the nail on the head like this machine. It’s a little cordless powerhouse. My arms don’t get tired while cleaning. It’s easy to clean. The attachments help you get in between cushions when you don’t have time to dismantle the entire couch. Most actually vacuums up the fur! And the clear canister lets you see how much you’re collecting. This gets 99 % of the fur. I am tickled at how impressive this machine is, and not just another gimmick to waste money on." —Jennifer

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99.

    6. A portable playpen with a zip-up dog door, so your pup can chill safely and comfortably alongside you at the beach, while camping, or at any other spot.

    A dog exiting the zip-up dog door in the play pen

    Promising review: "We use this as a little sanctuary/safe haven for our dog when we got camping or to the beach. Dog-tested and dog-approved!! It allows a nice breeze to come through while providing ample shade. I still keep this under our beach tent, though, because the top is not covered and does allow a lot of light through. It’s easy to shake/wipe clean. The bottom material is very thin, so be careful to not put it on a surface that would tear/snag it." —Galactica

    Get it from Amazon for $38.97+ (available in sizes M–XL).

    7. A 32-oz bottle of pet stain and odor remover spray, because if your furball goes everywhere you go, they may eventually end up "going," ahem, on the floor or carpet. Luckily, this cleaner works on carpet, tile, and hardwood, and even removes old stains and smells.

    Promising review: "I have a large family of fur-babies, some very young and one senior. Accidents have been happening a lot around my house. I have used products from the pet store, grocery store cleaners and home remedies. Nothing completely got rid of the smelly pet odors and stains. I saw a review for Rocco & Roxie Stain & Odor Eliminator online and thought, 'I don't have anything to lose.' So I ordered a gallon of the product. It was delivered quickly and I was ready to go. Oh my gosh!! ONE application of this product COMPLETELY removed a pet stain on carpet that had practically been cemented in from all of my other attempts to remove it. TOTALLY GONE! So was the smell! Since I didn't have anything to lose, I used this product across a whole variety of flooring. Carpet, cement, vinyl and wood. Yep, even my expensive wood floors. On the carpet, I used the product as directed. It removed every single stain. ALL OF THEM. And it also removed that faint, lingering smell of pee. For the cement and vinyl flooring, I sprayed on the product and bye bye odors. The people at Rocco & Roxie cautioned me to be careful using the product on my wood floors, since it is a water-based product. I would recommend this product to anyone who has pets. It reasonably priced, customers service is readily available and best of all, it REALLY WORKS!" —V

    8. A grooming glove that turns petting your dog into grooming your dog. The gloves' nubs collect loose and falling pet hair, stimulate and evenly distribute the oils in your doggo's fur, and also give them a nice little rubdown.

    A reviewer photo of the glove, covered in pet hair

    Promising review: "Fantastic dog grooming aid! Our older rescue dog isn't too keen on the routine dog brushing stuff, but her thick coat really needs the grooming. This dog grooming glove is the exactly right answer. Put the glove on, pet the dog, and all that loose hair comes away, leaving her coat feeling so much smoother and softer, without causing her to be nervous or upset over a brushing. Highly recommend, and yes I'm going to be ordering as gifts for a couple of other dog owners I know!" —DSP

    Get it from Amazon for $5.94.

    9. A set of foldable pet steps with railings, so older, injured, or just plain smol pets can join you on the bed or couch whenever they want (which is, like, a lot)., Amazon

    Promising review: "My dog loves them! She Learned how to use them very quickly! I have a very high bed and these were a perfect fit. Super easy to assemble. No more fears of my dog leaping from my bed and hurting herself, and no more crying at night from her wanting to get up on the bed." —Meagan Gagnier

    Get it from Amazon for $39.95+ (available in two sizes and two colors).

    10. A covered, elevated outdoor bed that will help cool and protect your favorite canine from the summer sun during outdoor hangs.

    The bed, which has an arched nylon canopy, secured at each of the bed's four elevated legs

    Promising review: "Got this for my 24-lb dog, as he usually lies on the concrete patio when we’re all outside, with the sun blazing down on him. Got it set up and didn’t even have to coax him onto it. He loves it! He’s so comfortable, and definitely cooler with that canopy over him. It’s also held up well through the heat, rain, and some surprising strong windstorms. Definitely recommend." —Prairie Dove

    Get it from Amazon for $44.99+ (available in three sizes and two colors).

    11. A set of matching pet-and-parent onesie joggers, because there's nothing cuter than besties who match.

    A dog and human wear the matching jogger onesies in dark blue

    Promising review: "I love these so much! Got them as a Christmas gift and they're everything I hoped for. The fabric is thick and cozy, really great quality for both the human outfit and the doggy outfit. Also came with a dog toy that was perfect for him and totally unexpected! He is a big chewer and normally destroys things quickly, but this one lasted! I take him on walks with our outfits and he doesn't shiver anymore (he's part Chihuahua)."—Brad

    Get it from Amazon for $17.95+ (available in sizes XS-2XL for pets, infants, toddlers, kids, and adults and in nine colors, pet and parent onesies sold separately).

    12. A glow-in-the-dark Chuckit! ball that doesn't require batteries — just charge it in the sun and then keep playtime going after sundown., Amazon

    Promising review: "My dog loves this ball! I have a year-old husky who loves to chew on everything. This ball can handle her destructive nature. I work late and by the time I get home, it's dark out, but I still want to spend time playing with her, and this ball works amazingly. I toss it in front of a light for a few minutes and it's charged and ready to be thrown. She loves the ball so much that when she's done playing fetch, she'll bring it to bed with her. There's a hole in the middle that makes a whistling noise when thrown which catches her attention. Great ball, glad I bought it." —Quyen

    Get it from Amazon for $6.95.

    13. A quilted, foldable, machine-washable Furhaven travel bed, so your furry friend-a-lini can have a comfortable place to lie down, no matter where your day takes you.

    A dog on the bed, which is round and made of sleeping bag-like material

    Promising review: "My dogs love it. Lightweight, easy to shake off dirt and dog hair, and water tends to pill instead of being absorbed. Not super thick, but offers extra padding on hard floors. Very packable; might use this for summer tent camping with the dogs. It is a bit on the slick side and not the best for car use, but is not totally inappropriate for such. The outside seems to be made of a nylon/polyester-like material that may tear if the dog likes to 'dig up' its bed, but otherwise seems durable. The camo paw print is cute, and I like that the bed is reversible with a solid burnt orange underside." —Amazon Customer

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

    14. An Outward Hound Hide-A-Squirrel plush play set that will engage your sweet fluffball's murderous hunting instincts! Tuck the three plush, squeaky squirrels into the tree, and watch your pup figure out how to hunt them down and get them out.

    The toy, which is a plush log with holes in it, that plush squirrels are then stuffed into

    Promising review: "I only bought this because of the high ratings and low price. As soon as I showed my dog the toy, he went wild. I hide the squirrels in the trunk and he loves shoving his snout in the opening and pulling the squirrels out. Maybe he feels like he's hunting, or perhaps it makes him feel like an apex predator, but he loves it. I bought the small size for my 10 lb dog. The squirrels are just the right size and fit perfectly into his mouth. He has enjoyed countless hours with this toy and it's almost time to buy a replacement. These toys will not last forever, it totally depends on your dog and how much of a chewer he/she is. My dog has destroyed the squirrels and I will gladly buy more. The toy lasted about 3-4 months, and I consider this normal, since it's a plus toy, not a plastic bone. The squirrels have squeakers in them and trunk is hollow so you can stuff them inside. Definitely recommend!" —escar

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes S-XL, replacement squirrels also available).

    15. A legs-out dog carrier, because your two are joined at the hip why not be joined at the chest? The carrier is great for long walks, hiking, or just pups who get scared and anxious inside traditional, closed carriers.

    A dog in the pink harness, which attaches to the chest and has the dog face outward with their arms and legs extending out of the harness

    Promising review: "I have a 3.5-lb. Morkie puppy who I carry with me almost every place that I go. The carrier is water-repellent and has a soft mesh front that allows easy air flow. The neck area is soft and will not press into your little one's neck. The shoulder straps are soft and won't cut into your body from the weight of your pup. I love the fact that my hands are free to carry bags while my little one enjoys the luxury of being carried. Also, I can relax knowing that my baby is in sight, close to me and safe from direct contact with the public (especially with the current pandemic). Initially, it took a few minutes to get my fur baby accustomed to being placed in the carrier. After a few days, she was very comfortable with the routine. I am extremely happy with this purchase!" —Traci

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and six colors).

    16. A no-spill, no-tip silicone bowl that's perfect for the car, so you and your puppo can hit the open road together, without worrying about spills or constantly pulling over for water and snack breaks.

    The bowl, which has a tapered lip to prevent food or water from spilling out, and a ridged bottom to keep it steady on the seat

    Promising review: "I love this thing. I was definitely skeptical but it is sort of miraculous how the water stays in the bowl. (It is even a little tricky to dump the water on purpose because of the design). I needed a bowl so my pup could have water at all times during a cross country road trip. He has kidney failure, so he needs more water than a normal dog might and he is always thirsty. This was the perfect option, as it doesn't slide around, and didn't spill. He has even stepped on it and it barely splashed. Perfect. Totally recommend. Bonus points: it's flexible so even though it doesn't collapse like other travel bowls, it is still easily packed away." —Siena

    Get it from Amazon for $12.43+ (available in two colors).

    17. A training clicker, so you can use your time together to teach your old (or young!) dog some new tricks. And the clicker's finger band makes it incredibly easy to carry while holding treats!

    a reviewer holding the purple clicker which has a green finger band

    Promising review: "Works well. It's easy to hold and train at the same time. That makes a huge difference if your using treats to reward!" —fayefaye

    Get it from Amazon for $3.99.

    18. An OXO reusable pet hair-removing brush, for folks who have grown tired of trying (and failing) to clean fur off their clothes with traditional sticky lint rollers. Roll the brush across the fur-covered surface, insert it into its self-cleaning cover and —voila! — out comes a clean brush (that's ready to get more fur off your sweater).

    a reviewer's before and after of a pet pillow with and then without fur on it

    Promising review: "Love love love. One of the best items I’ve ever purchased for dog hair. Great on clothes and furniture." —CR

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95.

    19. A small breed dental chew that helps clean teeth and freshen breath, because it's hard to tell your best friend that they have a severe case of stank-mouth, but's necessary.

    A dog with the chews, which have been broken into smaller pieces

    Promising review: "I have a dachshund, a breed notorious for bad teeth and stinky breath, and my girl is no exception. She's had two dental cleanings at the vet and a number of extractions. Despite trying several products and brushing her teeth, I saw the plaque and tartar building up again. I found this and gave it a try. It took some time — a month for her breath to start smelling better, and two before I looked at her teeth and noticed a big reduction in tartar. Now, her teeth look nearly clean, her gums are pink, and her breath doesn't smell like death. You may have to pay a little more for these, but they WORK." —Carolan Ivey

    Get it from Amazon for $14.50+ or Subscribe & Save for $13.78/ month (available in single or multi-packs).

    20. A portable pooper scooper with built-in bag dispenser, because if you're spending all that time with your #1 doggo, eventually, you will be called up on to clean up their poop—so you might as well make it as painless as possible. It even clips onto your leash or key chain!,

    Promising review: "I’m in love with this. I appreciate not having to feel the warmth of the poo while picking it up, and it helps contain the smell if we have to walk a bit before we can dispose of it." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in sizes M–L and two colors).

    21. A machine-washable five pound dry dog food travel bag that rolls tight to prevent staleness or stinkiness, so you can bring the exact right of food along on your travels (instead of packing a giant grocery store bag that eventually rips down the side and makes your car smell like hot kibble). Plus, the zippered side pockets can hold fold-up bowls, a harness, or whatever else you need.

    The bag, which has a nylon outer shell

    Promising review: "We stuffed one with dog food (expensive, oily, stinky dog food) and one with milk bones. We didn’t have to smell the food on our car camping trip. They did exactly what we needed them to. They’re made of nice durable material. No more grocery bags of dog food spilling everywhere and attracting ants!" —Taylor M.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.18+ (available in two colors).

    22. A hands-free leash with shock-absorbing bungee and a zip-up fanny pack-style pouch, so you can jog or explore together to your heart's content, without worrying about your arm getting pulled out of its socket.,

    Promising review: "Y'all, this is literally the best leash ever! My dog is part husky, so thinks he's in the Iditarod when we run, and I thought no way would this work. It's shorter than most leashes, which is what I prefer for control purposes. After he realized he wasn't bungee jumping from my waist, it was the best he's ever walked, let alone run! The pouch fit my phone, and I can finally run hands-free! I'm 5'4" and he's about 50 pounds for reference, but he usually pulls harder than most labs and Danes I know." —CZ

    Get it from Amazon for $17.95+ (available in seven colors).

    23. A machine-washable pet drying towel with built-in mitts that will help you get your best pal dry and on their merry way ASAP.,

    Promising review: "Wow! This is MAGIC! Seriously, it's so convenient to have pockets for your hands to wrap around each leg and paw and wipe the snow/ice/rainwater off. It makes a huge difference. It's the perfect size — not too small and not TOO big to keep by the door for clean up! It's super soft and absorbent — it really is incredible how much water it soaks up, compared to a normal towel, and it still doesn't FEEL wet. The quality is excellent. It's super thick, sturdy, very well made. I used it today to clean off my dog's super wet legs, paws and underbelly, and it dried his hair immediately and it didn't even feel damp afterwards! This is towel ridiculously efficient and convenient! It even has a little loop for hanging!" —Kendra O'Neill

    Get it from Amazon for $19.90+ (available in three colors).

    24. A bike-mounted leash attachment, so you and your medium-to-large dog can enjoy long springtime rides (without worrying about how you're going to hold a leash and handlebars at the same time).

    A dog with their collar attached to the attachment, which is mounted slightly above the back wheel

    Promising review: "Before I got this attachment, I broke an arm cycling with my dog. Since I got this, it has been sooooo much more secure and safer than just using a leash. This gives you a lot more control and stability. I have used it in my dog, as well as several other dogs I sit, and they love it! I loved it so much I went ahead and got a second one for my other bike. I leave the attachment piece on when I am not cycling with a dog and just disconnect the stick. It is super quick and easy." —Hannah Legerwood

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99.

    25. A teaser wand, for people and pups who want to explore a new way to play. Rather than pulling on the end (as you would with a traditional tug toy), the pup chases the end of the wand's string, which stimulates their hunting and herding instincts. And the wand's foldable structure make it easy to take to the park.

    The toy, which has a long pole with a rope dangling from the end

    Promising review: "This is a fantastic toy for our dog. We use it to entertain him, improve his focus and help his prey drive. Sometimes my dog tries to dig out my wood flooring, but then this toy comes out and he is beside himself with joy trying to catch the lure-type thing at the end. It has been hours of fun, both for the dog and us. It is a great toy!" –GK

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in two sizes and four colors).

    26. A quilted, waterproof, self-warming, double-sided Furhaven blanket that is a safe, non-electric way to make cuddle time as cozy as possible. And, hey, there's no law saying you can't get under there, too!

    The blanket, which has a terry side and a faux lambswool side

    Promising review: "I would give this blanket 15 stars if I could. As soon as it covers you, you can feel the heat. It's so warm and snuggly my daughter brought it to her room because she was cold— she didn't care that it was the dogs' blanket, they all just climbed in with her. It is also extremely soft. I will be buying more." —rhonda

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and four colors).

    27. A USB-charged light-up leash with both steady and flashing light options, so you and your pup can be sure you're always visible, even during late, snowy or rainy walks.

    The leash, which has two lines of glowing material stretching from the handle to the collar

    Promising review: "We live in Las Vegas where it's very hot, so our dog walks typically occur late at night, so these leashes are a must! So easy to use and they have three settings. One with the lights on always, one where the lights flash slowly and one where the lights flash fast. The LED lights are only on one side of the leash, so when the leash turns, they're not always facing toward traffic but still provide light. They're easy to charge, too. We have been using them for about three months now with no issues. I try not to let the light run out completely because that defeats the purpose, but we go for 45-minute walks daily and I charge the leashes every eight to nine days. Even during quarantine, we have people almost daily asking from their porches or from across the street where we got these leashes! They are a fan favorite and we love them, too. The handle has a little extra padding, which makes it easy to hold and doesn't hurt your hand. This company also makes an LED collar sold separately. We have this for the blue leash and it works wonderfully." —Luis

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in two sizes and six colors).

    28. A squeak-crinkle-and-rope toy that will give you endless playtime combinations., Amazon

    Promising review: "Bought this for my six month beagle puppy. He loves it and its very durable." —Jeffrey Peake

    Get it from Amazon for $10.80+ (available in bunny, lamb or duck).

    29. A bottle of nontoxic, tear-free, bacon-flavored bubbles, so your best pal can have safe (and delicious!) fun hunting these floating wonders all over the yard, porch living room, or anywhere else you want to have a little whimsical play.

    a dog chasing bubbles

    Promising review: "I've tried pretty much every bubble formula for dogs, and this stuff is the best. 1. It's safe and appealing for dogs! It does smell like bacon. 2. It makes a lot of bubbles easily. The bubble wand produces bubbles in three sizes. The bubbles float for a long time and don't pop right away. I can finally keep up with my dog when he's catching and popping them as fast as he can! 3. It doesn't leave a thick or sticky residue like some other formulas do. Yeah, it's expensive, but I'll buy again!" —BAH
