21 Things You Need If You're Totally Obsessed With Your Pet

Excuse me, I'm cancelling all my plans to hang with my dog.

There are two kinds of people in this world. Ones who live and die for their pets...and everyone else.

Boomerang / Via giphy.com

Do I feed my dog leftover ice cream from a spoon and spend more money on his toys than my wardrobe? Yes and yes. Because he is a precious angel and HE DESERVES IT.

It's a fact that no one loves us the way our pets do, which is why we're all for these products that honor them or allow us to spoil them. Pretty much a win for everyone involved.

1. A custom-made pillow starring none other than your pet.

etsy.com

Welp, I know what I'm buying my sister for her birthday this year. This plush pillow is customized to feature your very own pet! All you have to do is send the artist a photo of your pet, then they draw it and add it to a pillow! This adorable piece of decor isn't limited to cats and dogs — why not send a picture of your hedgehog or rabbit?! The pillow can be made in any color so it's sure to match your home. Obsessed.

Get it from DrawYourPortrait on Etsy for $40+ (available in sizes 14x14-20x20 and in any color).

2. A picture frame that includes a replica of your furry friend's paw.

amazon.com

Why don't I already own this? The frame comes with everything you need to create a lasting memory of your favorite creature's paw print. The impression is made out of clay (100% safe for pets) that air-dries, so you won't have to worry about making a mess. The frame itself is made with solid wood and holds a 4x6 photo.

Promising review: "I'm really glad I purchased this product. Although Jasper is only 4 and won't leave to go to the rainbow bridge for another 100 years, this will make a great keepsake for when he does. The clay was easy to mold and the frame is very sturdy and of very nice quality. You should make sure to get all the dirt off of your dog's paw before you do this as well, and if they have any excess hair on their paws, trim it a little. I didn't do this for Jasper and now I have dirt on it and hair prints as well. I do, however, think it makes it even more special. It is so like Jasper to have dirt and hair everywhere! I even had enough clay leftover to make another paw print for a Christmas ornament!" —Emily

Get it from Amazon for $17.98 (available in seven styles).

3. A handheld dog shower attachment so you and your pet can have a spa day at home.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Who says a day of pampering should only be for us humans? This easy-to-use pet wand will help you shower your dog with love (and water) from the comfort of your home. My dog personally hates the car, so taking all 80 pounds of him to the groomer is often a struggle (to say the least). By using this attachment he can clean up without feeling anxious. The unique wand is curved to provide full coverage while washing your pet. It also has an 8-foot-long flexible hose for extended reach and be used indoors or outdoors.

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

Get it from Amazon for $36.

4. A three-way tunnel for endless adventures with your beloved furball.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Ideal for puppies, cats, rabbits, and other furry friends, this is a toy you're definitely going to want to bring into your home. It includes three connected tunnels, built-in crinkle paper, a peephole, and a soft ball toy. It will give both you and your pal hours of enjoyment. It's made of durable, tear-resistant polyester and is framed with a sprung-steel. It's also collapsible and portable so you can take it with you to a friend's house.

Promising review: "This was purchased for my dwarf rabbit and she gives it two bitty ears up.. lol. She spends pretty much all day going in and out of all the tunnels and hopping out of the middle hole. I plan to purchase a second for backup. It's very easy to clean. She has had it for three months and it has held up very well, even to her 'digging.' Great purchase for bunnies, not just cats." —Erica

Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in blue and red).

5. A pet hammock so your pal can lounge in style on long road trips.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Like I said before, my dog Luke HATES the car. He has full-blown panic attacks and someone always has to sit in the back with him to keep him calm. Not to mention he's a golden retriever and we end up with hair EVERYWHERE. But we love him and don't want to leave him behind, which is where this hammock comes in. It can be easily installed in the back seat of any car, making dogs feel more comfortable while protecting the car from damage. This product is a game-changer.

Promising review: "Construction is sturdy and able to hold up under a lot of wear and tear. The zippers allow a 'kennel'-type setup and it has velcro openings for seat belt access. The zippers can withstand a lot of pressure — my dog is an 86 lb golden retriever and the weight stress on the zipper and straps for the seats didn't cause any tearing or damage even though they often supported his pure weight. I put the doorway mats on the bottom to give additional traction." —Bethani Rourk

Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in black and green).

6. An illustrated family portrait that includes all of your pets and will make you smile every time you glance at it.

etsy.com

Looking for the perfect way to show off your family? These hand-drawn illustrations can incorporate all of the important people (and animals!) in your life. I love how unique and special these drawings are — simply a must-have for those who love their pets.

Promising review: "This was exactly how I pictured it! It is an anniversary gift for my husband and I know that he will love it. Our three animals are included on our picture and Ashley did an amazing job matching the pictures I sent." —Elizabeth Lenar

Available from PrintableWisdom on Etsy for $50+ (available in a variety of styles).

7. A dog treat camera so you can feed your little furball no matter where you are.

amazon.com, amazon.com

The Furbo dog camera is actually life-changing. If you're in a long-distance relationship with your pet (like I am) or you're away for a period of time (or even just the day), it can truly hurt your heart to be away from your furry BFF. Thanks to this gadget, people like you and I can still feel connected to our pet! The camera allows you to see and hear your dog, talk to them, and to toss them a treat! It's amazing. Read our full review here.

Promising review: "I bought this item for my girlfriend who is deployed overseas in Bahrain. She loves her dog more than anything so I knew this would be a perfect gift for her. The first night I had the Furbo I was awoken several times in the middle of the night by high-pitched squealing and giggling of glee from my girlfriend not being able to contain herself. She was so excited to see him, talk to him and give him treats and OH BOY does she like giving him treats! By the time she gets back from her deployment I am sure he will be overweight and won't be able to run to her when she gets home. Thanks Furbo, your product is awesome and we all love it!" —maria

Get it from Amazon for $199.

9. A fancy water fountain so your pet can drink to their heart's content (without begging you for more).

amazon.com, amazon.com

Saying I'm obsessed with my dog is an understatement — but that guy wants water ALL THE TIME, usually when I'm in the middle of something. The guilt that a pet owner feels when they keep their furry pal waiting for just a moment is unmeasurable. This product helps prevent both of those issues! The free-falling water stream will allow your pet to drink whenever they feel so inclined, and encourage them to sip more often if they're usually reluctant to. Added bonus? It's dishwasher-safe!

Promising review: "What a blessing! My 20 lb male cat would not drink from a bowl — only from a dripping faucet. Naturally, that was a problem when he was home alone as I didn’t want to leave water running. I feed him wet food as well as dry food to get more liquid in him. Now — no problem! He drinks water all day from the lowest stream setting on his Drinkwell fountain." —Page

Get it from Amazon for $44.95.

10. An interactive cat toy that's simply purr-fect for entertaining your precious feline.

Put down the laser pointer and get your cat something you can play with together! This fun tower features multi-level tracks that will keep your kitty entertained for hours as they bat balls around. It's suitable for one or more cats and will help them have a more active lifestyle. AND think of all the great IG content you'll get!Promising review: "Kettle has wiped himself out at least once a day trying to get at least one of the balls out of its slot, to no avail. And if this SIXTEEN POUND, long, tall, extremely narrow, all-muscle black cat can't break this toy, can't even move it off the place its suction cups stuck it to on my laminate floor, then short of a hammer and a determined two-leg bashing it to bits, it can't be broken — at least not by a domestic cat." —This am usGet it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in orange, pink, and purple).

Promising review: "My 15-year-old kitty who's always cold took to her Christmas present immediately. I first put it on my lap and she hopped right up and didn't want to leave for an hour while I watched TV. Then I left the mat on the sofa and she stayed there instead of retreating to her usual hiding spot in the cabinet. Now the trick will be for me to reclaim my seat on the sofa!" —Body-n-soul
