    1. A flying squirrel dog toy because it's much more fun for your pup to chase a toy that looks like the real thing (except for the bright colors, of course).

    Promising Review: "My Labrador puppy absolutely LOVES this toy. It's his favorite whenever we play fetch. Holds up well to his tendency to chew on it before giving it back for another toss. This works so well for us I bought a second one to make games of fetch easier." —Elle 

    Price: $5.18+ (originally $10.99, available in two sizes)

    2. A tough dog chew toy that will stand up to even the toughest bites. This toy looks and smells like real wood, but uses synthetic material so it will last a long time.

    Promising Review: "Definitely lasts longer than any rawhide chew he’s had. He really likes gnawing on it. We’ve had it over a week now and it’s not breaking down. Looks like it’s going to last quite a while." —Maura

    Price: $5.99+ (available in four sizes)

    3. A roller dog toy perfect for indoor activity. Play fetch even if it's raining or way too hot outside. Your pup will love it just as much its reviewers do.

    Promising Review: "Very well-made. My five dogs love it. It's durable and it can withstand tug-of-war games. Plan to purchase more really soon." —Chewy Reviewer

    Price: $6.89 (originally $9.99)

    4. A baseball stadium hide-and-seek toy to test your pup's detective skills. Hide the balls around the yard and watch as your buddy brings them home just in time for the out.

    Promising Review: "My dogs have enjoyed all of their Frisco toys and this one has been especially fun. Love that the baseballs can be hidden for hide and seek but that they also roll for a good game of fetch. It has been so much fun to see him leap and twist in the air to catch the baseball with his mouth! Once they chew it to pieces I will definitely buy it again if it's still available." —Chewy Reviewer

    Price: $13.01 (originally $13.98)

    5. A digital thermostat and temperature controller for your reptile habitat to make sure your cold-blooded buddy stays comfortable. For reptiles, environment is everything and this thing can regulate heating *and* cooling devices. When they are comfy on the inside they will show you all the love on the outside.

    Promising Review: "This is a MUST. Get this if you have a reptile who needs a constant heat source. They need this to make sure it's the right heat and they don't overheat or freeze." —Dakota

    Price: $28.99

    6. A water bottle with a bowl attachment to make it easier than ever to keep your pup hydrated on big hikes or during camping trips. One squeeze and the bowl on top fills with water. It's so convenient, you might even use it at home.

    Promising Review: "I ordered this for my dog as I will be moving soon and needed a way for my dog to get water during the 900-mile ride to our new home. It is easy to use — dog tried it right away and it is perfect. I have been looking everywhere for one and was told to try Chewy and sure enough they had it. I received this within a few days and was very pleased." —Nance

    Price: $14.99 (comes in five colors)

    7. A plush bed for your guinea pig, rat, chinchilla, ferret, bunny, bearded dragon or whatever small critter you have. The faux fur inside will make them feel like they're snuggling with their brother or sister. They will never be lonely (or uncomfortable) again!

    Elise / Chewy, Ang1 / Chewy

    Promising Review: "My daughter has two guinea pigs so I bought one for each but they like to snuggle together. She says they love them." —Prissy

    Price: $10.52 (originally $18.99)

    8. A set of can covers to keep your wet food fresh. Pet food companies seem to think all pets eat the same serving of wet food, which leads to so much food ending up in the trash. Keep these covers handy and you can save so much food and in turn so much money.

    The can covers on four different cans

    Promising Review: "What can I say? This is a can cover, it's definitely better and more sustainable than a tinfoil cover so it was a good investment. Buy this one if you need a good cover." —Chewy Reviewer

    Price: $7.51 (originally $11.95)

    9. An airtight food storage vault to keep your pet's food fresh and safe from invaders (aka your pets).

    Promising Review: "We got this storage container for our dry cat food. It is great to keep the cat food in the garage where little critters (mice) might get into other storage containers. It is made of thick material and opens and closes pretty easily for arthritic hands." —Nannybanannyb 

    Price: $17.95+ (available in four sizes)

    10. A pet travel bag that is designed specifically to be a carry-on for air travel! With this handy bag you can fit food, water, toys, and everything else you need while traveling. There's no need to worry about forgetting anything, so you can focus on keeping your pup chill before takeoff.

    Chewy, Luna/Chewy

    Promising Review: "This bag is perfect for traveling with my 70-pound husky. Lots of storage space for food, leashes, and other necessities. The storage containers are a good size and nicely made, and I especially love the silicon bowls that come with the bag." —huskymama

    Price: $44+ (originally $54.99, available in two sizes and four colors)

    11. A dual dog leash to make sure both of your dogs are safe out in public. Plus, now they won't get jealous of each other. Same leash. Same love.

    Chewy, River/Chewy

    Price: $8.95 (available in four sizes)

    13. A Furbo Wi-Fi dog treat dispenser with an HD camera and night vision that will keep your best friend safe and happy when they're home alone. With the automatic treat dispenser, your pal might prefer it over you. Just sayin'.

    Chewy, Littlelupey/Chewy

    Promising Review: "I was a little hesitant to purchase this at first, but now it's my favorite purchase yet. There is no better feeling than knowing what my new puppy is up to when I have to leave him. I have not had any difficulties so far and the setup was very easy." —Archie

    Price: $164.95 (originally $199)

    14. An automatic pet feeder that holds up to five meals. This handy machine works on a timer, so you can load up five meals and it will deliver the perfect amount of food at the perfect time. And by "perfect," I mean the amount and time you choose. Remember, you're the alpha dog!


    Promising Review: "Love this product so much. I have one for each of my cats. I don't worry if I'm running late or have to be away. My furry friends are taken care of. I would highly recommend this to all cat or dog owners." —Casey

    Promising Review: "I've had this item for a couple of weeks. It's small enough to fit where I needed but big enough for my cats. They transitioned easily, very little litter is scattered (I use the recycled pellet letter), and I'm a happy camper!" —Sofia

    Price: $27.99 (originally $29.99)

    16. A roll of terrarium liner that is much more sanitary and easier to clean than other substrates — like mulch, sand or gravel.

    Katy / Chewy, Sally / Chewy

    Promising Review: "I've been using these reptile carpets for awhile and they work really well! I have never had any problems with my leopard gecko's claws or teeth getting stuck in it! It doesn't hold any smell and is really easy to clean! Would recommend!" —jade

    Price: $3.39+ (available in eight sizes)

    17. A playpen for your cat, bunny, chinchilla or other small pet that will satisfy their adventurous spirit from the comfort of your home. All these little guys want to do is explore, and now they can explore without getting lost or into trouble.

    Chewy, Rhonda/Chewy

    Promising Review: "My cats love being able to go outside and I love that they are safe. I wasn’t sure about how the mesh would work with nails but my older cat scratched at the door the first couple of times and wasn’t able to make a hole. They can’t wait to go out in the morning. I added a little cat nip inside for them. Easy to assemble." —Good

    Price: $79.95 (originally $84.95)

    18. A set of pet stairs that come in two heights depending on where your little buddy is trying to go. Plus, the stairs kind of look like ancient Greek columns so your pets can look godly while climbing these bad boys.

    Promising Review: "Wow! I am very impressed with this item. Very heavy duty (practically needed a handcart to get the box into the house) and easy to assemble. I swear a horse could climb it — certainly an aging 10-pound cat can. The fleece covering is a nice touch. Very happy with purchase." —LizM

    Price: $39.99 (originally $44.99)

    19. A bottle of aquarium water conditioner to keep your fish swimming in clean water. Just a few drops help reduce chlorine, chloramines and heavy metals in tap water. Plus, the soothing aloe vera helps replace and protect your fish’s slime coat, keeping them happy and healthy.

    Chewy, Saija/Chewy

    Promising Review: "After adding new angelfish, the fish stayed in one corner for two days. After I introduced the product, they perked up and are now swimming with the other fish." —Bonn

    Price: $1.79+ (comes in eight sizes)

    20. A heated pad for pets that is perfect for cold weather. You can put the pad in a dog bed or let it rest on the floor. With this handy item, your buddy will forget what cold feels like. Warning: The pad is so comfy they may want to sit on it more than they want to cuddle with you.


    Promising Review: "My cat kept sleeping on my boyfriend’s Xbox because she loves how warm it is, but ever since I got this heated bed for her she loves it so much that she doesn’t sleep anywhere else." —tortieiris

    Price: $36.04+ (originally $111.99, available in three sizes)

    21. A saguaro-shaped scratching post because why not have something practical also contribute to the decor? Plus, your cat will think your home is a desert adventure. How cool is that?

    Promising Review: "I had a problem with my kitten scratching up the side of my couch, so I bought this and placed it right in front of that part of the couch. She almost immediately started scratching the cat post instead of the couch, and hasn’t gone back! So happy with this purchase, plus it also looks super cute." —BeanAndSylviesMom

    Price: $23.07 (comes in two sizes)

    22. A cat window perch that is very easy to install! Simply attach the suction cups to the window and you're done! It's easy to remove so you can get creative with placement and create new vistas for your cat.

    Price: $28.91 (originally $39.99)

    23. A birdcage skirt to keep birdseed in the cage and off your floor. Plus, it lets in light so your little winged friend won't think it's time for bed.

    Chewy, Clarissa/Chewy

    Promising Review: "I love the net! It keeps a lot of seed and debris off the floor and, when our four zebra finches bathe, it even blocks the water! I wish I would have made this purchase long ago, especially when we had 12 birds!" —pets4michelle

    Price: $10.81 (originally $13.97, available in five colors and four sizes)

    24. A fuzzy tunnel cat bed that looks so cute with its charming wood stand. Your kitty will enjoy jumping through and sitting in it as much as you'll enjoy looking at it.

    Promising Review: "This is beautiful, unique, and modern and my kitties hopped in even before I finished assembling it. Assembly was fairly straight forward and took 5 to 10 minutes. The quality is awesome and I love how it looks in my house. Not tacky at all (as cat beds usually are)." —Cayla

    Price: $44.99

    25. A treat-dispensing puzzle with little plastic sushi pieces. Let your dog or cat find the treats under the sushi to make feeding time fun. We know they can't have actual sushi, but this is the next best thing.

    Promising Review: "Our little Yorkie loves this. It didn't take her long to figure it out, but she doesn't get tired of it. It's very intuitive, and it makes them work for their treats and/or kibble. It's not too big and not too small. This is a keeper." —EllysMom
