    1. Rachael Ray Smoochies dental chews that will keep your doggo's chompers pearly white while they enjoy a lovely chew session.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Each large bag includes 37 chews.

    Promising review: "We just tried Smoochies for the first time and we're so glad we did. I have tried other dental chews and, while my dog has enjoyed them all, these are the first that actually seemed to make a difference with his breath. My dog has an allergy to animal protein, so it makes it that much harder to find something that doesn't make him itch terribly. I definitely recommend these!" —StacieP

    2. A fall-inspired pet toy duo to celebrate your love for pumpkin everything.

    3. A cat food puzzle that will help slow down your greedy friend who just can't get enough food, which probably even causes them to throw it all up. Barf no more, Stinky McStinky Butt!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My cat usually only plays with the food in a traditional bowl. She already loved to put her paws in her bowl and hook food out. Within minutes of filling up this digger and placing it on my back porch, I could tell she loved it. I would say Arry gives this product two paws up and a purr for outstanding creativity." —KhaleesiOfKiwis

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    4. Or a dog version where you can hide food in the sliding cups for that pup who thinks every meal session is a "how fast can I eat" challenge.

    Promising review: "This is awesome! My border collie’s level of intelligence is a part-time job for me. He requires engagement and he figures out everything fast. This puzzle took him a good hour and a half to figure out the first time and every time after that, he sits with this for about an hour. He’s really calm (which he’s normally not) and concentrated with it, methodically moving pieces. I ordered a second, different puzzle a day after we received this first one. It’s easy to clean because the sliding tiles just pop right off but I’ve just been using his regular kibble in it so it hasn’t hardly gotten dirty at all." —Courtney Oldham

    Get it from Amazon for $14.32+ (available in 20 styles and four levels).

    5. Matatabi cat chew sticks that are a perfect alternative for those kitties who don't really like catnip. Just rub some of the bark off the sticks to release the natural oils and watch your cat play away! Bonus: it also helps maintain healthy teeth!

    Get it from Meowy Janes on Etsy for $10.61 or from Amazon for $9.97.

    6. A nail grinder kit to trim your pup's nails without the worry of cutting them too short which could result in bleeding and future anxiety about nail trims. The grinder will safely grind their nails down to the desired length *and* is wireless for easy maneuvering around the puppo.

    Chewy

    The nail grinder has two speeds to choose from and comes with the charging station and extra drum heads so you're always using an effective grinder.

    Promising review: "Pleasantly surprised as I’m not sure what I was expecting. I’ve used Dremel tools for years for household projects and was picturing that loud power tool. This isn’t exactly quiet but it isn’t horrible. However, I was pleased with how well it sanded down the nails and how easy it was to shape them so there were no sharp edges or angles like you always get with clippers. Our one-year old boxer mix took two people to use this but that was just to keep him calm and to help hold the paw. He mainly just wanted to pull away but was in no real distress and didn’t actually fight. Instructions say three seconds per nail in a rotation to keep them from getting hot. I found 5 to 6 seconds worked for me to make progress and I would feel the nail after and they were still cool. You do need to stabilize longer nails so they don’t vibrate. I would say once a week is optimum so you stay ahead of growth. Also don’t be stingy with sanding drums but they aren’t expensive and do last through multiple sessions. Definitely recommend over clippers." —MortyTheDog

    Get it from Chewy for $29.99.

    7. A hammock bed so your little critter can chill after a long night of wreaking havoc in their cage while you were trying to sleep.

    amazon.com, 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, has 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. We're so pleased with this product!" —Dmarie

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in four colors).

    8. A de-shedding FURminator (in cat, dog, AND small animal versions) for people who are tired of living in a house overrun by fur balls in every corner.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Fantastic deal. Feels solid and really gets the mats out with my long-haired german shepherd. She doesn't seem to mind it at all, so that's a bonus!" —AR

    Get it from Amazon for $11.96.

    9. A step ledge that'll provide a nifty hiding spot for when your reptile bud (or fish!) wants time alone, but'll *also* give them a something to climb on when they're feelin' adventurous.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This would also be great in a fish tank! They just won't appreciate the chance to climb as much.

    Promising review: "Great item for leopard geckos. Mine loves it. As soon as I put it in her tank she got right in. Great for climbing as well." –Jillian K

    Get it from Amazon for $13.21+ (available in eight styles).

    10. A window bed to give Katy Purry the perfect perch to watch birds, cars, or just the regular neighborhood drama go by. Report back with some tea, Katy.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was a little skeptical when I first saw the product because I was very unsure if it would be sturdy enough to actually hold onto the window when/if my cat lounged in it. But my cat absolutely loves this window seat. The best part is that it is completely sturdy and all worries of it not holding on the window have been replaced with compete happiness with the product. I would recommend this to anyone and their furry babies, as I have been pleasantly surprised with the product myself!" —Jess

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99 (available in two colors).

    11. A pet crate that doubles as an end table so your furry friend can have a cozy little room of their own to lay in while still being nearby when you're bingeing your favorite Netflix show.

    Promising review: "Perfect size for our English Cocker spaniel. The clasp works great. Good quality for the price. My husband had it put together in about 30 minutes. It looks so much better than the plastic kennel we had before." —Kelly

    Get it from Wayfair for $150.47 (originally $170, available in four sizes and four colors)

    12. Dog goggles (DOGGLES?!) to protect their eyes from the sun, wind, and debris when they're going for a ride in the car and absolutely insist on sticking their heads out the window.

    Paw 2 Paws is a small business that specializes in stylish and affordable pet gear.

    Promising review: "The sun glasses fit my Newfoundland dog. Spud let me put them on and tolerated them well. We will be using them this summer when camping in the desert and it should keep the sun exposure down. Thank you." —Colette Taylor

    Get it from Paw 2 Paws on Etsy for $9.99 (available in six colors).

    13. A tennis ball launcher because your dog (and your arm) is really tired of your lame throws. This launcher will add speed and distance to your throw so you can really see Spot run.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Boy howdy can you launch a ball with this thing!!! We have a 6-month-old black lab puppy and he absolutely loves chasing tennis balls! Getting my dog his daily exercise has never been easier! It is so nice that regular size tennis balls work with this and that it doesn't require its own special size ball. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone with a high energy dog who loves to chase balls." —Blue Eyes

    Get it from Amazon for $6.05+ (available in four ball sizes and six lengths).

    14. A car seat cover that'll extend the life of your car seats with all the adventures you two will go on. This cover is slip-resistant and waterproof for the ultimate comfort you'll both enjoy.

    Promising review: "This can be used as a bench seat cover or as a hammock. I chose the bench seat cover. It completely covers my Corolla rear seat. There are Velcro seams so that you can access the seat belts. I use an EzyDog clip adjustable seat belt restraint that I also got from Chewy." —Kate

    Get it from Chewy for $26.99 (available in sizes two sizes). 

    15. A hiking backpack so Freddie Pawcury can bring his own gear on your weekly adventures together. The breathable mesh keeps your pup cool and has expandable pockets to store all the treats!

    16. A hammock and vine set made with natural fibers and large enough to fit even the biggest of bearded dragons.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My husband and I have a fairly large Cayman blue iguana and he loves it. He spends 80-90% of his days in it. This is definitely worth the money!" –BabyBrownEyes24

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    17. A carrot tree toy that'll spruce up your rabbit or guinea pig's place with some boho-chic decor they'll love to munch on.

    Promising review: "My bunny LOVES! I have just started to free range her, she is getting fixed next month, and I noticed she was biting everything and little toys from the pet store did nothing. She has been so entertained!" —Lexi

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    18. A mountable rock cave for snakes who just want a cozy little place to hide and look out. Attach this bad boy against the glass and they just might decide it's the best place for snoozin' and creepin'.

    20. A floating fetch toy sure to give your water pup the chance to doggy paddle to their heart's content while the weather is still nice.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My dog hates the water, but for this she happily dives in! It's a great toy for the lake or beach. My dog can't resist going after it even though she is not fond of the water or getting wet – she learned to love swimming by chasing this thing. It's easier for the dogs to see, find, and grab in the water than a tennis ball. They're well-made and hold up to rough play from big dogs." —Brian

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95 (available in two sizes).

    21. A water fountain that'll filter your tank's water *and* give your lil tank friend's enclosure a unique accent piece. They'll basically be auditioning for the next season of MTV's Cribs.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My boyfriend and I bought the chameleon kit which came with the 'little dripper' which we regretted immediately. It was impossible to keep the perfect drip, she was either getting no water or way too much. Now we no longer worry about her getting enough water throughout the day. No mess or overflow and you can adjust the water drip speed." –Morgan Casteel

    Get it from Amazon for $32.89.

    22. A four-step pet stair so your fur babies will have no trouble getting up on the bed. Ultimate cuddle time: Activated. Best part? It's foldable so you can slide it under the bed when not in use.

    Chewy

    Promising review: "I purchased this for my 5-month-old Shih Tzu puppy and she absolutely loves it. After having fallen off our bed, I wanted her to have a means to get on and off the bed. She was shown once how to climb it and she loves it. I sometimes find her on the bed because she just loves climbing it. However, we are working on going down the stairs...that is a little more challenging for a puppy but we are getting there. Best thing I ever did for her." —PeggySue

    Get it from Chewy for $34.99 (available in three colors).

    23. A macrame cat hammock that will match your impeccable bohemian vibes while also giving your kitty a place to ~chill~, reducing the piles of fur they create on your bedsheets from all their naps.

    Macrame Beautiful is a small business based in Beijing that sells stunning macrame pieces like planters, wall decors, and baskets.

    Promising review: "This is my second purchase and I will continue to buy!! The craftsmanship is so beautiful. It is evident she enjoys what she does. Every item is packed with care and in adorable resealable pouches. Sweet stickers with handwritten notes and beautifully printed 'how to care for and clean the items.' My kittens love their hammock!" —Annie Zummo

    Get it from Macrame Beautiful on Etsy for $59.99+ (available in two styles and with one, two, or no cushions).

    24. Greenies Pill Pockets conveniently shaped to hide any pills you have to give your dog. "Oh this? Totally a normal treat..no pill in here, bud!" —you being the sneakiest dog parent of the year.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    You can also get these for cats.

    Promising review: "All of my animals line up when my dog gets her meds put in these. They love them. It's worth noting, the dog variety is so large you could probably use them for horse pills. My dog takes two pills, twice a day and we tend to just tear a hunk off and mash the pills in there. You can tear to the size you need. They are very soft and pliable." —Luke H

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98 (or Subscribe and Save for $7.58/month).

    25. A treat ball your guinea pig, rabbit, or hedgehog is sure to have a ~ball~ (get it?) playing with. It will not only keep them active, but will also engage their natural foraging instincts, and who doesn't want that?

    Amazon, amazon.com

    The adjustable opening makes this work for kibble, pea flakes, small diced carrot, dried herbs or dried fruit.

    Promising review: "I have two standard Rex rabbits. A fully grown one (about 10 pounds) and 9-week old baby (the size of a guinea pig). Both absolutely have a blast playing with these balls. The baby has even managed to get the ball into the water dish. So, I wonder if he's learned to pick it up and throw it by the treat dispensing opening. The ball's treat dispensing opening is adjustable in size to accommodate different sized yummy surprises or difficulty level. They get great enjoyment trying to get either pieces of vegetables or some food pellets out of it that I've put inside." —PPG

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95.

    26. An obedience recall leash so you can have some peace of mind while teaching your pup to run and return. The leashes go up to 100 feet (!!!) so you can really wear out even your ridiculously energetic pup.

    This also works great if your pup likes to swim!

    Promising review: "Great product! Fast delivery, lead came as described, and I’m very happy with it. We use it for our 67-pound coonhound. It’s great for taking her to a lake – it floats well and allows her safe freedom in the water. I also use it for obedience recall. If this one ever wears out I will definitely buy another. I use the orange so it is easy to see on both land and water. I recommend spray lubricant on the clasp so it doesn’t stick with use in sand and water." —79Blizzard

    Get it from Amazon for $7.97+ (available in five lengths and 24 colors).

    27. A personalized microfiber towel to prevent you from accidentally grabbing the dog towel to wipe your kitchen counters.

    28. A cardboard cat scratcher that'll help keep your feline friend's nails clean, healthy, *and* strong. Plus, it'll keep them away from the brand new sofa you just bought.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "My 20-pound Maine Coon loves these. It takes him six to eight months to completely demolish one. He does move them and knock them over occasionally when scratching the bottom 'legs' while standing on the floor, but they have never collapsed due to his weight or size." —Vincent Davis

    Get it from Amazon for $8.85+ (available in eight styles).

    29. Grooming gloves, because aren't we tired of our dogs releasing their pesky little furs all over the place every time they turn their heads? Keep it to yourself, Fido.

    Chewy

    Promising review: "I was skeptical about this product but it is wonderful! I was amazed at how much hair came off my dogs with these grooming gloves. Plus the dogs loved the extra pets while being groomed. I got more hair off with these gloves than with the brushes I have been using." —Kwbd

    Get it from Chewy for $9.99.

    30. An eye-safe laser toy you can set to play when you're busy at work or away from home, so your cat can constantly be on the hunt, looking for the elusive red dot that mocks him.

    Action shot of cat chasing laser with graphic that says "Play-All-Day mode lets your cat play while you are away"
    Amazon

    Promising review: "The cats have started asking me to turn this thing on. Several times a day. They meow at me if I don't comply. The other day they tipped it over and the laser was sweeping across the ceiling. The orange cat was attempting parkour to try and get the ceiling red dot thingie. The other cat makes cooing noises as he chases the dot around the living room. He has never made cooing noises before. This has given them hours upon hours of entertainment and exercise, so I am quite pleased with the purchase." —Andrea Huckaba Rome

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    31. A Ripple Rug, an interactive play mat (made out of recycled plastic bottles!) for your cat to hide in, nap, pounce, and even groom themselves. Your cat will love playing in this, and it'll provide a lot of hilarious photos for their ever-growing Instagram account.

    amazon.com, amazon.com, amazon.com

    This has a nonskid bottom, so your cats can be as aggressive as they want without it slipping under them. It's also a great option for multi-cat households.

    Promising review: "Straight out of the box, all five of my cats took to it, RIGHT AWAY! If only I was the genius who would have thought of this product, but I'm ecstatic nonetheless. I have a very timid cat who gets pushed out of everything, as you can see in the group picture (above, left); but later, she got to investigate and played for a good half hour! I can't get her to play with anything alone, so this was huge after seven whole years. I always have to instigate play with her, until this came into our lives today! I am so completely pleased. When she attacks the holes and hears the hook and loop pull, she freaks out and runs circles around it for her next attack. You won't be let down. This is the best entertainment ever, especially for the cat lady and cat dad involved. We hurt from laughing. JUST BUY IT!" —Katie

    Get it from Amazon for $40.11.

    32. A plush log toy that'll basically become their go-to toy until the end of time.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "My lab fell in love with it! I got the 'Ginormous' one. It is tall and comes with six squeaking squirrels. He is having a blast and already has removed one squeaker, but the squirrel is still intact. The stitching is very good and durable. He is particularly interested in chewing the cardboard base, (cardboard between the fabrics for support). Finally a toy that challenges and excites him." —Capt. Ken Caine

    Get it from Amazon for $10.39+ (available in four sizes and nine styles).

    33. An agility course to entertain any clever and very active K-9 who ~thrives~ off of learning new tricks and skills.

    Amazon

    This set includes an adjustable high jump, weave poles, square pause box, round open tunnel, with ground stakes and ropes to secure each piece in place.

    Promising review: "Very happy with this set! I needed something not too expensive to have a try at agility training so we can keep up with our boxer's energy. She loves it and has a lot of fun! She fits through the tunnel without a problem. I like that the set has bags to store the tunnel and poles and protectors for the sharp ends of the poles. Very easy to set up, break down and put away." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $69.59.

    34. A track tower that allows your kitty to bat the balls around without them falling out and getting lost under the couch.

    Chewy

    Promising review: "I bought this toy for our youngest cat, who is just about a year old. He loved it immediately. He has fun swatting one or more of the balls around the tracks, and playing with the butterfly too. Our two older cats also enjoy this, and more than one can play at a time. One of the best features is that the balls do not come out." —ButterflyToy

    Get it from Chewy for $9.97.

    35. A wooden ladder bridge to elevate your hamster's home *and* give it a sweet lil' nook for them to hide and chill. I'm sure they *wood* really appreciate it.

    Promising review: "I think this is the perfect size for hamsters and especially dwarf hamsters. It's in my bin cage for my small Chinese female hamster and she has no trouble fitting under the arches or walking on top of it. Bends OK and does its job well for making a second level for my girl." —Gabriel Felix

    Puppy sleeping beside toy
    Amazon

    Promising review: "My partner and I recently got a 4-month-old Italian greyhound puppy and this has been great. We slept with the stuffed animal a few nights before picking up our puppy and placed it in his crate before he arrived. After playing with us and exploring his new home he walked into his crate and curled up against it and went right to sleep. He slept right through the first night with no issue. Today is week two and the batteries are still going strong. I plan on buying one for my sister who will be getting a puppy in the next few months. This is cute and functional." —Jeb

    Get it from Amazon for $38.64+ (available in five colors).

    38. Or a purring cat toy that'll adorably soothe your nervous angel by giving them the sensation of curling up next to another purring buddy.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Works like a charm! I recently found myself a cat mama of an abandoned week-old kitten. I bought this knowing she needed just something to cuddle up to in her bed. Turns out it basically hypnotizes her to sleep. She crawls to it, kneads it and eventually her meows turn to silence. I wish the purring lasted longer but for $10 it is a lifesaver. She's pooped on it a couple times so I've had to throw it in the washer and dryer minus the battery pack. It's held up great." —S Leytem

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in two styles).

    39. A tug-of-war toy so soft on Jimmy Kibble's teefies, you can have peace of mind knowing they won't lose a canine while playing with you.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My dogs LOVE to play tug, but one of my girls has not-so-great teeth, so ropes basically end up pulling her little front teeth out and make her bleed. This toy, however, doesn't do that. She can tug and tug and tug and no issues! They get it all stretched out in a line, and then it just bounces right back! When things start to get nuts, I can walk up and just pull this out of all three of their mouths. Whatever it's made out of makes it easier because they don't get their teeth actually embedded in the toy, like they would a rope." —Alicia L. Silva

    Get it from Amazon for $13.89.

    40. Some 12-inch faux plants that are gonna make your fish tank look like the underwater jungle you've always imagined for your fish ever since you saw Finding Nemo.

    Promising review: "I put only about five of these in there and it filled out the tank sooooooo much!!! It gave my new babes a place to hide from the older grumpy fish, til they got more comfy in the tank and grow a bit. (I also have rock hideaways) if you can't have plants cause of your fish, this is a good way to give your tank color and a place for the fish to hide. for the amount this price is AMAZING!!!!" –Amazon customer

    41. A cat feeder so your kitty can learn to eat more slowly. It'll help ease their digestion so they can feel good while hunting these around the house.

    Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed Writer Mallory Mower says: "I started a hunting system for my cats when I felt like they were getting lethargic during the winter. One of my cats was overweight because he would sit and eat the dry food left out when he was bored. With these he'll "hunt," eat one, and not eat again until he's ready to go hunting. I've written a full review on this clever feeding system before because I refuse to stop recommending it (#1)!"

    Get it from Amazon for $17.71.

    42. And finally, a Furbo that allows you to speak to your pup whenever you see them get just a little bit uneasy because you're not around. You can even throw them some treats!

    Promising review: "As the owner of a new puppy I couldn't imagine how anxious I would be able leaving the puppy for the day. I made the leap into what I thought was crazy-pet-parent territory and bought a camera. Best. Purchase. Ever. It works like a dream. I was worried that it might not pick up because our Wi-Fi isn't the strongest or the fastest, no problem. The app (mine is on an iPhone) is very easy to use. The quality of the image, both regular and night vision, is excellent. We use her kibble as treats and it fires several at a time, which doesn't bother me. We angled it so it shoots into her kennel. It is such a huge relief to see her whine for just a few minutes and then settle in to sleep for hours. I even talked to the dog walker through the camera when he arrived." —Teresa
