    If you're worried about finding little paw prints all over your carpeting, don't worry, it's stain free. 🐾

    Promising review: "I use to live in upper Michigan and used Mushers Secret regularly for my dogs. I bought some a while back though I live in Louisiana now because it blocks the ice and heat well. It also blocks salt from the dog pads. Love this stuff. Recently went to Washington to visit my sister and it was icy and it helped Charlie with his tiny paws. My mom just got a new puppy recently and she lives in Germany. She got a little pug. She was really concerned about her paws getting hurt from the snow, ice and salt. I bought her this product to put in her package as part of her new puppy gifts. This product really works. Just rub a bit into the paws. Wash it off when you get home if need be. I totally recommend this product and have been using it forever. Most dogs don't like wearing boots and this is the way to go. I had a lot of sled dog friends in Michigan and they are the once that got me to try it. I am glad they did." —K9rotehexe

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    2. A holistic healing gel to help relieve your pup's skin-related ailments, including irritation from allergies, hot spots, rashes, and dermatitis. Now you and your pet can do your skincare routines together!

    PawromaTherapy / Etsy

    PawromaTherapy makes all-natural therapeutic pet care products for dogs and cats. The small business is based in Altamonte Springs, Florida and is run by holistic veterinarian Dr. Deneen Fasan, who develops the small-batch, handcrafted products right in their veterinary office. Dr. Fasan uses only safe, natural ingredients (like aloe vera, essential oils and herbs) as well as organic, sustainable, and recyclable items when possible.

    Promising review: "Wow, this helped my dogs tremendously!! One was bitten by another dog and this helped it heal very fast. The other has dermatitis and this soothed her inflammation. Will be buying again! Update: I nicked one of my dogs with clippers. Bled horribly! I cleaned her up and applied this and it was healed in two days. My mother's groomer nicked her dog in the same area and he had to go to the vet and wear the cone of shame. I'm going to get her a jar if I can talk her into trying the holistic approach." —Lolaisgr8

    Get it from PawromaTherapy on Etsy for $14+ (available in two sizes).

    3. A soft hammock for the ferret or rat in your life who just loooooooves to snuggle. This'll help keep them nice and cozy when you're away from home.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "We have gone through so many hammocks that do not work for our ferrets. This hammock is AMAZING!!! Our ferrets love it! It’s durable, no long straps or cords for them to chew on, they can hide in it and it’s big enough for them to cuddle together. We are so impressed we ordered another one to put on the second level of their cage. So pleased with this product!" —Dmarie

    Get it from Amazon for $11.66+ (available in four colors and styles).

    4. A veterinarian-formulated toothpaste that your pup can actually get behind (they deserve pearly whites, too!). Its natural flavor will actually taste good to them, which means you'll no longer have to worry about all that plaque building up on their ~canines~. 🦷

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    It comes with a toothbrush, too!

    Promising review: "I read a lots of reviews on different brands and decided on this one. GREAT IDEA! There is no bad odor, if anything, it's odorless. My dog loves the flavor of it too — he actually sits when he sees me getting the toothpaste out because he thinks it's a treat. We just started using it two weeks ago and have already noticed an improved on some build up on his back teeth. Recommend!" —Nikki_D

    Get it from Amazon for $4.09.

    5. An ~elevated~ pet bed with a mesh center designed to keep your pup cool and cozy, indoors or out.

    reviewer photo showing their dog laying on the elevated pet bed
    amazon.com

    My dog, Wrigley, (a 50-pound pit bull mix) has this bed and we prefer to call it his throne. He had bought probably five different beds before this one, and he never used them... Maybe because he is too good to be laying on the ground?? As is likely the case with your pup, too. Our veterinarian recommended these to us and we couldn't believe how much he loves it. He now has one that stays outside, and you can find him basking in the sun on it all day long during the summer. We put a fluffy bed on the one we keep inside (in front of the fireplace, naturally) to make it extra cozy for him in the winter. Basically, if you have a stubborn, spoiled pup who deserves a throne, this may very well be your answer.

    Promising review: "Our 6-month-old golden retriever loves it! The size is perfect, we ordered the large, and it's strong enough to to hold his weight. He also loves to dig, scratch and chew the bed and even now ( we have had it for about three weeks) there are no holes or tears in the fabric. I am very impressed!" –Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $27.31+ (available in sizes small–XL).

    6. A pet hair remover that'll help you keep your furniture clean and clear of all the unwanted fur that's been building up for weeks (ok, months? YEARS??).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my cat-loving life? Sticky rollers work fine for clothes, but this is the only product that has ever COMPLETELY removed all the cat hair from my bed. I have a long-haired 20-pound tabby and if you run your hands up his back a few times and fling the hair everywhere, it looks like it's snowing — he never stops shedding no matter what I do. After using the ChomChom, I can put on a black dress and roll around on my bed and not get a single hair on me. It's absolutely amazing. Everyone is getting one for Christmas, even if they don't have a pet. I don't care, it's THAT good." —Stephanie

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    7. A small animal tent so your little pal(s) can move around and get some exercise *outside* of their cage (while still easily keeping a close eye on 'em). 👀

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Perfect for our guinea pig. Plenty of room for him to run around in for exercise. Very lightweight and easy to clean. Mesh sides make it perfect to be able to keep an eye on him and they are a good height to make sure he does not get out. Good for inside or outside. I wish I had ordered it sooner for him!" —Lynne S.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in five colors).

    8. A snout soother to moisturize that crusty nose of theirs back to smooth, buttery perfection. They'll be so grateful for a smooth snout, and you'll be even more grateful to not find nose crusties in your bed.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Well, I have never before been so shocked at the effectiveness of a product. Our 5-year-old Frenchie, Carol, had a nose that was so crusty it was sprouting these long strands of more crust. There was literally crust on crust on crust. The nose had strings of crust. This nose was so crusty and repulsive it was almost beautiful. Her nose might have resembled the rarest, most exotic geode to be mined from the rarest mine in Guatemala. A friend recommended Snout Soother for Carol's repulsive nose. I was worried she would just lick it all off and it wouldn't work. We never imagined she could have a regular, soft, moist nose again. Honestly this product is some black magic stuff! Unbelievable results in three to five days. No one paid me to write this." —Brittany

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95+ (available in two sizes).

    9. A medicated dog shampoo formulated *without* parabens, dyes, or soap to manage dandruff, mange, and fungal/bacterial infections. They'll be so much more comfortable, and you'll be able to sleep at night knowing your pooch isn't suffering.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Naturally, because of the ingredients, it has a strong smell. However, it does seem to leave my dog's skin feeling dry and provides good relief for her poor itchy skin. My dog Molly is a 9-pound mini dachshund whose little chest makes contact with the grass all the time so her skin gets itchy and irritated. I’ve been bathing her regularly with this shampoo and it is giving her some relief. No more greasy, flaky skin. Her skin and fur is now dry and soft." —Climbyourarms

    Get it from Amazon for $8.96.

    10. A dog car seat, because your pup deserves to be safe in transit, too. It can also help alleviate any anxiety or carsickness they might experience.

    reviewer photo showing their puppy sitting in the car basket
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I used to HATE driving around with my dog just laying on the seat. It was dangerous! He would roll and slide when we made a turn or had to hit our brakes. I knew I needed to do something. I chose this one because it was actually like a basket as opposed to others that didn’t have sides that were raised enough. This was simple to install! Literally put it over your headrest, then wrap the buckle around the seat and clip and tighten! That’s it! On to my dog: He loves it! He feels SAFE in it and that’s the best thing. He can actually sleep on a car ride now! Before we got this, he threw up in the car from being car sick. Not anymore, he is secure and isn’t being bounced around. He can also see out the window safely." –Emily

    Get it from Amazon for $62.99+ (available in seven colors).

    11. Or a backseat car extender so your dog doesn't go flying off the seat when you slam on the brakes. It's especially great for big dogs who need a little extra legroom.

    reviewer photo showing their large dog in the backseat of their vehicle, fitting only thanks to the car seat extender
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My dog is 14-and-a-half and, of course, has lost much strength in her back legs. The last two times I had her in the car, something she adores, she fell off the seat. Once she had to stay on the floor until I pulled over to help her, and another time, she scrambled back up. She broke my heart. This bridge keeps her safe and secure on the seat, and it is so easy to install...it's just a matter of adjusting the straps. I had my heart in my throat as I pulled out of the driveway with her and it in the car, but I was thrilled that she took to it right away." –Joanna Catanzaro

    Get it from Amazon for $66.95+ (available in two colors).

    12. A pack of catnip-infused felt balls guaranteed to keep your purring friend entertained for hours — freeing up time for you to actually get some chores done around the house.

    SimplyBVermont / Etsy

    Here's the cool part: when your cat starts to lose interest, all you gotta do is plop the felt balls back in their "charging tin" so they can absorb more of the catnip smell (there's little capsules of catnip in the tin). After a few hours, they'll be good as new and your cat won't be able to get enough. BTW, SimplyBVermont is a small business located in, you guessed it, Vermont. They make all kinds of adorable pet accessories and toys for cats AND dogs.

    Promising review: "Fast shipping, seller was super thoughtful and attentive, and most important of all our kitties are obsessed with these balls! Even my shyer one is running around with these having an absolute blast even without my tossing them around. It’s also wearing her out which is quite hard to do. Highly recommend!" —Ketti Schulenberg

    Get a set from SimplyBVermont on Etsy for $12.99.

    13. A dog paw cleaning device to make sure your home stays mud- and dirt-free all year long. It might even feel like a luxurious spa treatment for your pup every time you come back from a walk!

    amazon.com

    Okay, probably not. But even if they *despise* this tool, at the very least it'll help keep your house somewhat clean.

    Promising review: "Best. Thing. Ever. This product works like a charm. It gets the sand from between their pads, and is gentle enough that even my most stubborn pup tolerates it! I have a terrier/schnauzer that likes to dig, a mini golden doodle that is prissy about her paws and a standard labradoodle puppy that is still very fuzzy. We have a farm where it is extremely sandy and we stay in a travel trailer. The amount of sand they were tracking in to the camper was ridiculous. It takes me three minutes to clean and dry off all of their paws. Seriously the best purchase I have made!" —Rachel

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

    14. A Furbo camera straight from the future. Not only does it allow you to keep a watchful eye on your pet 24/7, it also syncs with your Amazon Alexa to send you barking alerts — and even lets you toss them a treat!

    reviewer photo showing their two dogs staring into the Furbo camera at night
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was always concerned leaving my puppy home alone because he will cry a lot... When I got the Furbo, things got much better! Furbo sent me notifications to my phone when he was crying, so I would log on and talk to him right away. This changed everything!! My puppy knows I'm always there, so his separation anxiety is getting better. He cries less, and I feel much more relieved." —Susan

    Get it from Amazon for $169.

    15. A top entry litter box that prevents litter from scattering everywhere when you're trying to freshen things up for your feline.

    reviewer photo showing their cat on top of the litter box
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My cat used it within the first 20 minutes I had it ready to go! No issues at all so far! Sleek and beautiful litter box! Very classy and makes cleaning litter a breeze! At first it was bigger then expected but once I put it where my old litter box was I realized it fit a lot nicer then my old litter box did which was HUGE and had a hood!" –Julianna Miller

    Get it from Amazon for $31+ (available in four colors).

    16. Or a self-cleaning litter box to automatically remove waste for you, which means you don't have to scoop, clean, or refill it for weeks at a time.

    reviewer photo showing their cat sitting on top of the purple litter box
    amazon.com

    This litter box comes with a pre-portioned package of litter that you pour into the tray. After the tray's sensor detects that your cat has left the box, it will clean the tray in 5, 10, or 20 minutes, depending on which setting you choose. When the tray is full, all you have to do is remove it and dispose of the waste.

    Promising review: "This is a really great idea for busy people such as myself. I love cats, but not their litter box. This one is really odor free and does all the dirty work. You will love it. I recommend it to all cat lovers It is a time-saver as well." —Coco

    Get it from Amazon for $169.95.

    17. A wall suction treat dispenser that'll make bath time, nail trimming, and general training SO much easier. While your pet is focused on the peanut butter staring into their eyes, you can work on getting them groomed.

    amazon.com

    Many reviewers suggest freezing this with the peanut butter on it first so that your pup has to really work at getting all that deliciousness out — which'll keep them occupied for a little longer so you can do what you need to do!

    Promising review: "Tried this with our lab puppy when I needed to sweep and vacuum the floors. This kept her busy for a while so I could clean in peace! I filled it with peanut butter and placed it on the refrigerator door. She loves it! Also used this when we had company to keep her busy so she wouldn't be such a pest." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95.

    18. A chic dog bowl set, because your doggo deserves to dine in the utmost level of luxury. This elevated feeder also features storage underneath for things like treats, toys and leashes, making it just as functional as it is stylish.

    Elevated dog bowl set from Large Dog Feeders on Etsy with two large ceramic bowls
    Large Dog Feeders / Etsy

    Large Dog Feeders is small business owned and operated by Jeff Woodshop based in Frisco, Texas. They also offer a selection of customizable dog feeders that can be engraved with your pet's name!

    Promising reviews: "This is absolutely beautiful! It's the perfect height too for my Boxer! I couldn't be happier!!" —Amanda

    Get it from Large Dog Feeders on Etsy for $135+ (available in three heights and five finishes).

    19. A pet carrier designed to keep your cat calm with its roomy, heads-out design, which makes traveling with and grooming them effortless.

    Top-down photo of reviewer's cat sitting inside the carrier
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a 20-pound, 13-year-old diabetic cat who haaaaaaates going to the vet, so in an attempt to make her as comfy as possible, I purchased this carrier. The day it arrived I unzipped it and set it on the floor and found her sleeping in it hours later LOL. My vet even commented on how nice it was. She has to go in every so often for them to test her glucose levels and they don't even have to take her out of the carrier; they just unzip the top portion and can draw blood easier that way since she can't really escape (or bite them like she did the first visit without this carrier). He told me he wished more cat owners had a carrier like this since it made their job much easier that day." —SaraPo

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

    20. A dog water bottle to keep your pup from becoming dehydrated or overheating while you're on the go.

    reviewer photo showing their dog smiling at the water bottle
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This water bottle is really nice for the fact that you don’t waste water and/or run out of water as quickly with how it drains back into the bottle! The water bottle conveniently fits in my car cup holder and it has a nice open/close knob which prevents water from spilling. My dog seems to like using this water bottle because of the bowl-like top and it has come in handy on long car trips and when we’re hanging out outside. Definitely recommend this to all dog lovers!" —Momma

    Get it from Amazon for $15.97 (available in two sizes and four colors).

    21. An Aspen self-warming bed that reflects your pet's body heat to create a warm, comfy spot for napping and relaxing.

    reviewer photo showing their cat stretching out in the warming bed
    amazon.com

    Reviewers note that their dogs AND cats love curling up in this!

    Promising review: "I had to order a second bed, because my two cats are fighting over the first one I bought. But honestly, it's been kinda funny watching the battles. Trust me, your cat(s) will love this bed." —Leslie D. Van Damme

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in two sizes and two colors).

    22. A macrame leash since your pup is obviously on top of all the latest Pinterest trends (macrame being their latest obsession).

    Sir Dogwood

    Based out of Chicago, Sir Dogwood was founded back in 2016 as "an inclusive community for swank pups and their sartorially-minded owners." The small business donates a portion of their monthly sales to One Tail At A Time, a non-profit whose mission is to end pet homelessness.

    Get it from Sir Dogwood for $60 (available in six colors).

    23. A pet life jacket so your dog can enjoy the comfort of swimming in a refreshing pool or lake. Now you won't have to worry about being a lifeguard!

    reviewer photo showing their dogs wearing the life jacket
    amazon.com

    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 neck piece on this vest helps a lot)." —Kristina Circelli

    Get it from Amazon for $18.24+ (available in sizes XS-XL).

    24. Folding pet steps to help your pet reach higher ground — aka, your bed, sofa, or car — without having to jump up and strain their precious little joints.

    reviewer photo showing their puppy climbing up the pet steps
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Great value and works really well. We have two large dogs (85 lbs and 92 lbs) and two big trucks (large SUV and GMC Sierra, a tall pick-up truck) and this works just fine. It's just an inch or two short of the back of my SUV and maybe 6 inches shorter than the back of the Sierra. It's an easy extra step for the dogs. Folds down nicely to fit in either truck and the dogs really do not have any problems getting in or out. Really helping our backs… NOT lifting these big (old) dogs in and out of our vehicles!" —Kristina

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

    25. A dog carrier backpack so you can carry your pet around with ease. The backpack's ventilated, waterproof design will keep them comfortable through even the toughest travel conditions.

    reviewer photo showing their dog's face sticking out of the carrier backpack
    amazon.com

    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 $134.99 (available in two colors).

    26. A BarkBox monthly subscription because your dog is always getting jealous when you get your subscription boxes in the mail and they're not allowed to chew them open for you.

    reviewer photo showing their dog smelling the Bark Box
    amazon.com

    Each contains items that total to a $45 value, including two original toys, two bags of fresh healthy treats, and one yummy dental chew. Each box has a fun theme so you too can get a real kick out of it.

    Promising review: "I've been a subscriber for years. They offer a great amount of flexibility and care. They offer some customization to your dog (or dogs if they share a box) that suits what they like. In the past when there were fires in the area they gave us a free box. Since we weren't affected they were even willing to donate it to the shelter of our choice. Any questions you have they get back to you within a day." —Nick D.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95/month (available in three sizes).

    27. An anxiety jacket for dogs who are constantly stressed out. This soothing jacket applies gentle pressure to calm your pet's nervous system to help relieve stress and anxiety.

    reviewer photo showing their dog wearing the anxiety jacket
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I’m a little weirded-out by how well this works. I bought it knowing I’d probably send it back. My schnauzer destroys my house when I leave and I don’t want him to spend his life in a crate. I bought this as a last-ditch before having him medicated to keep him from freaking out when we leave. It works 100%. We’ve had it for about three to four weeks and tested it. If we leave and he’s wearing it he won’t touch ANYTHING. He’s very calm and collected. If he’s not wearing it he is antsy and we come home to DVDs destroyed, picture frames tore apart, his toys gutted and piled in the middle of the room, and hats chewed beyond saving. I’d recommend this to anyone with an anxious dog." –Amazon Customer

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

    28. A nail grinder that's a heckuva lot easier to use than traditional clippers. It's also just wayyy less intimidating, so your pup might actually let you give them a pedicure without having a complete meltdown. 💅

    reviewer photo showing the nail grinder with their pups looking on in the background
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My older dog (15) has been suffering with long nails for some time. It's affected her ability to walk, and she's always falling. I've taken her to the groomer, tried to clip them myself, taken her walking and none of that helped. I even took her to the vet and had them put her under anesthesia to clip her nails. That didn't do much at all and they recommended I not do that often because of her age. So I got this and hoped for the best. I am beyond impressed and thankful! In one session this has made a huge difference. My dog didn't move or jerk around like she normally does. She just laid there and let me take care of her nails. I could not believe it When we were done and she got up to walk, I could no longer hear the loud tapping on the floors. She is gonna have to get used to walking normally again." —georgiadiva2k

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    29. A pair of waterproof booties so your pup's paws will be protected from hot pavement, sand, rough terrain, and even salt during the winter months.

    reviewer photo showing their dog wearing the waterproof booties indoors
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a 10-month-old Belgian Malinois and she wears these on a daily basis. She runs beside us by the golf cart and even jumps into the creek and goes swimming and they still stay on. The rubber sole on the bottom is thick and will last a long time and the double Velcro straps hold them on tightly. This product is definitely a 5-star product and I would recommend them 100%." –Alysha Reece

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in five sizes)

    30. A chew toy set that's so aesthetically pleasing, you won't even complain when you come home and find them laying all over the floor. This set is ultra-durable, which means your pup *won't* be able to destroy it in less than five minutes.

    Wild One

    This bundle includes the triangle tug, twist toss, and bolt bite — you can also buy them individually and all are made with 100% natural rubber.

    Get all three from Wild One for $58 (available in four colors).

    31. A touchless vacuum that'll make your dust pan look like it's straight outta the Stone Age. Say goodbye to the daunting, back-breaking task of bending over and trying to get every last strand of pet hair off your kitchen floor.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Like a vacuum, you'll have to empty it every now and then. It's fairly compact, so you can keep it tucked away in a closet or against a wall in your kitchen without it being too obnoxious.

    Promising review: "I’ve used this product for a few months now and it’s amazing! The suction on it is really strong. (I was actually shocked when I put my hand down there).. It is a bit loud. (Like a vacuum cleaner) but that’s normal for what this is. I have two kids and two goldens and the hair and dirt is a lot and this machine is just amazing! Wish I would've bought one years ago." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $139 (available in two colors).

    32. And a grooming glove to make your pup feel like they're getting a relaxing massage and scratch sesh. But in reality, you're just rounding up all their loose fur so it doesn't cover your furniture and floors.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Incredible product. I'm brushing my cat every day sometimes twice a day! My cat sheds like crazy!!! I'm going to buy another so that I can keep it just in case. My cat was vomiting hair all the time. She hasn't vomited since I began using this glove!!! Well worth the money. Truly happy with my purchase!! Thanks!!" —takeisha

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    33. A pet grooming tool with extra-thin, extra-long teeth designed to truly give your pup the blowout of their dreams. It'll also help them shed less!

    You're both about to be strutting down the street looking like you just left Drybar.

    Promising review: "Great product! I have a 5-month-old lab who would scream when I brushed her. With this brush she relaxes and I get five times as much hair off. I didn't know she had that much loose hair! Buying another for my brother!" —Katie Boone

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97

    34. A suction cup cat hammock so your cats can lounge peacefully in the sun, rather than on the expensive couch you just bought.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My cat loves to sit on the top of my sofa cushions, and I'm no fan of him deflating my couch... or covering it in hair! I was skeptical of this one since it was cheaper than other ones. But proved me wrong. It has great suction and my cat loves laying on it in the sun. I did have to put him there a few times and pet him until he stayed. Now he goes right to it every day! Some people asked about chewing the wires. I notice he does this sometimes but not for long and hasn't even put a dent in them." —Kristi M.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    35. An LED collar that'll keep your pet safe on your walks (especially since it gets dark so freaking early), and give you some entertaining content for your Insta story.

    reviewer photo of their black lab wearing the green LED collar
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love that this product is rechargeable. A solid hour of walking and the light remains bright. It's a great price especially because you save money on the purchase of batteries. I didn't test the products strength. I just add it onto my dog's neck for night time walks and take it off afterwards. The entire collar lights up as seen in pictures posted by others. I add an adapter to the recharging wire that enables me to plug it into the wall socket and not just the computer. It doesn't take long to completely charge and I recharge it every 3 days or so just to make sure the power doesn't accidentally run out. I am completely happy with this product. I highly recommend this product for a safer nighttime walk with the dogs." —M

    36. A handheld dog shower attachment that might *actually* make your pooch enjoy getting a bath. It'll feel so soothing on their coat, rather than just standing in lukewarm water as you scrub them with shampoo. And, *fingers crossed*, it might help prevent them from trying to jump out! 🤞

    Promising review: "Owners of long-haired/thick-coated breeds: This is what you've been looking for. I've waited over 20 years for this and have used everything from custom heads to kitchen wash heads. The water flow from this even at low pressure (40 psi) is excellent, adjustment on handle are well-thought-out, and this WILL get right through a thick undercoat." —Animal Doctor

    Now you can rest assured your pup won't get lonely when you go off to work or run errands.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical about getting a $40 stuffed animal for my dog, but I’m so glad I did! We got our Frenchie on a Monday night and we were up three times that night with her and Tuesday night. The puppy buddy came in on Wednesday evening and I immediately let her use it. I turned on the heart beat for her and she was immediately intrigued by it. The final test was seeing how she did overnight. She slept all night! We heard her whine for not even a full minute at one point but she went back to sleep quickly. She now looks for her puppy when she is ready to lay down." —Amazon Customer

    38. An automatic pet feeder so that you don't have to interrupt whatever it is you're doing to feed the cats. This can help your pet stay on a consistent eating schedule, whether you're home or not.

    This automatic feeder can hold up to 12 meals depending on the size of each portion (you can choose from 1/8 cup to 4 cups).

    Promising review: "Our cat is fat. Her life is pretty much driven by food and the only way we've been able to keep her at a moderately sustainable weight is by giving her healthy food she hates and this pet feeder. Every time we come back from a trip, there are a few more claw and bite marks on it, but it holds strong. She's even tried to sit on it, but it's done nothing more than presumably horrify it a little. She used to move around the bowl so when feeding time came she could put her head where the chute is and feel the food rain down her head like Augustus Gloop in the chocolate factory. I would recommend this for anyone who has a cat who is consumed with eating and getting food. Her persistence has defeated every other one we have tried. Yes it is expensive. Yes it is absolutely worth it." —BMoney

    39. And, this handy device that'll prevent everyone in your house from constantly asking one another, "Did you feed the dog?!" Your pup will be so grateful

    It has magnets, so just stick it on your fridge for some easy, non-verbal communication with the members of your household.

    Promising review: "Awesome product! There are four of us that were working together to feed the dogs. It simplified everything because I no longer have to text to see if anyone had fed them every morning. Now I just to see if it's green and if not, I feed them and indicate it. We all love it so much!" —Toni Deegan
