    34 Products For Pet Owners Who Just Want A Cleaner Home

    Dirt, mud, litter, and endless amounts of fur — it's all a part of that pet-owning life, but you don't have to live with it in your home.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A self-contained paw washer to clean the dirt, mud, and debris from your pup's paws after their walk or a long day outside. Doggos actually like the feel of the gentle bristles on their paws, so it's a win-win for both your pup and your floors.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have four dogs in NYC. I have to wash their feet after every walk because the streets are so filthy. It would take me about fifteen minutes to clean their paws with a spray bottle and towel. Now, it takes about five minutes. And the towel doesn’t end up filthy. The dirt gets caught in the cup, plus the dogs seem to like it. The silicone bristles must feel good. A huge thumbs-up!" —Sandra

    Get it from Amazon for $10.50+ (available in three sizes and six colors).

    2. And an outdoor shower grooming tool for cleaning up after those particularly messy outdoor romps. Give your dog a makeshift shower with this grooming tool that attaches to any water bottle. Just squeeze, and you'll be able to shower off your pup no matter where you are — no more tracking mud indoors!

    Promising review: "We have three Aussies who find mud in drought. Works great on any bottle we tried it with. Also terrific for muddy or overheated children!" —J. W. Ramsden

    Get it from Amazon for $13.95.

    3. Or a dog sprayer attachment with a more concentrated stream that can be installed in your shower or hooked up to a garden hose. Your precious pup will be all clean in a jiffy (and your home will *stay* clean).

    Amazon, amazon.com

    It also comes with a handy suction cup and diverter hook for storing in the shower.

    Promising review: "I bathe four dogs a month and have bought about every kind of dog shower out there. So far this has not only outlasted all the others, but the dogs really like this. I have shepherds with thick coats and was afraid this wouldn't get through their coats but it does. I like the two settings and can get around their faces without it being harsh. It rinses soap out of their coats very well. So far still no leaks, and it's working perfectly." —K9Arlo

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in two sizes).

    4. For outdoor cats who like to spend their days rolling around in dirt, a waterless dry shampoo to clean their fur while also saving both of you the trauma of giving them a bath.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This product is great at helping me keep my long-haired Persian's hair smelling and feeling clean without actually having to bathe her multiple times a month. She is a rather messy eater and gets her chest dirty and this waterless foam cleans the mess right up." —Crystal M.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.49.

    5. A robotic vacuum capable of sucking up all the pet hair, dirt, dust, and leftover food crumbs building up on your floor. All you have to do is turn it on, and it'll go about its way cleaning your floors, even getting into hard-to-reach areas like under couches or tables.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This robo vac can easily move between hard floors and low-pile carpets/rugs and can pick up all the accumulated dust, dirt, and hair while you go about your day.

    Promising review: "First of all, I LOVE this vacuum. We have a smaller, single-level house with mainly tile floors and low pile carpet... and three indoor/outdoor cats. I hate vacuuming. The cats hated me vacuuming. The Eufy has solved both our issues. I hit the button in the morning or evening, and the little guy trundles around bouncing off of corners and chair legs and the occasional cat butt, and by the time it's done the floor is debris-free. I will say, it's far better at picking up hay bits and sand and cat fur than I expected. It does occasionally catch a stray cord, and it has gotten stuck on the rug with fringed edges a time or two, but for the most part it's really low maintenance and MUCH quieter than I was expecting. The cats, after an initial period of stalking it around the house, mainly ignore it entirely. It's only (slight) flaw is that longer strands of hair (mostly mine) and other strings/threads it pulls from throw rugs tend to wind themselves up around the brush. That said, it's super easy to remove and clean the brush once a week or so. The dust bin gets emptied every other use and hasn't been completely full yet." —SunnySD

    Get it from Amazon for $139.99+ (available in two colors).

    6. A ChomChom pet hair roller for pets who love to sprawl out on your furniture and leave a thick layer of hair behind. The ChomChom roller doesn't mess with sticky tapes or paper; instead, you get a reusable brush that grabs up every bit of hair and lint as you clean — just empty it out after, and you're good to go again!

    amazon.com, 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. Or a Bissell corded 4-amp handheld vacuum that simply erases stubborn pet hair that otherwise won't come out. Its rubber nozzle is capable of pulling out hair and dirt, and its lightweight, compact design makes it easy to handle.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    It also comes with a hard nozzle for cleaning up dry messes or the inside of a vehicle.

    Promising review: "I've seriously bought every kind of vacuum out there, including the Roomba, which is about as intelligent as a Q-tip. But I have four cats and a golden retriever, so I was getting desperate! I believe the saying is… a picture is worth a thousand words. Check mine out! Of note—the 'before' picture was taken of my dog's bed AFTER it went through the washer and dryer. Look at all of that left-behind hair! And the 'after' picture was taken after only THREE MINUTES spent vacuuming her bed. I am sold!" —Luka Chan

    Get it from Amazon for $38.99+ (available with and without a filter)

    8. A set of ceramic food bowls and a matching stand if your pet, without FAIL, spills food everywhere at dinner time or straight-up knocks over their bowl. This stand has an anti-slip grip and holds the bowls tight so there's no moving around, and the elevation actually makes it easier on your pet to eat, as they don't have to kneel down as far.

    Vanilla Bean / Etsy

    Promising review: "These are excellent! They're clean (keeping the floor and wall relatively clean as well) and beautiful. Great product!" —Vaughn Egge

    Get it from Vanilla Bean on Etsy for $78 (available in two colors).

    Vanilla Bean is a small business based in California that sells functional and beautiful home goods.

    9. A 35-ounce spill- and slip-resistant water bowl to put an end to the pools of water all over your floor. It has a floating disk that controls water flow and forces your pet to slow down and take an actual gulp so they don't walk away with water still sloshing out of their mouth. Though mostly designed for dogs, messy cats can use it too!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My poodle likes to make a mess when he drinks. After researching options this bowl seemed like it was worth a try. I played with it rocking the bowl with water from side to side and didn't get any splashing. My dog quickly figured out how the bowl worked. Basically, he presses down on the lid and a little bit of water rises to the top. It hasn't completely eliminated the mess, but it's reduced it by at least 75%. Before this bowl we only let him drink outside or in the garage. Now he drinks in the kitchen. The splashes stay within a couple feet of the bowl and usually total just a few drops."—Amazon Customer

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

    10. A UV black light flashlight that, uh, may give you some very gross info about where your pet has been having accidents. There's nothing worse than detecting the vague smell of pee and not knowing where it's coming from.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "OMG this is disgusting!!! I hope this isn't all just cat pee that shows up cause there is a lot! I bought this because I thought my cat was peeing in one room and couldn't find the exact spot so I bought this. Found the spot and more. Would recommend." —Momof3boys

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    11. And an odor-eliminating spray you should have on hand for when you locate that latest carpet accident. Not only does it lift away stains; it also releases enzymes that break down the deep and persistent odors left behind.

    amazon.com

    Carpet messes are undoubtedly the worst to clean up — it's "funny" how they always choose to have their accident there — but you can also use this on clothes and other surfaces like concrete and hardwood. Just be sure to follow the instructions carefully for non-carpet use.

    Promising review: "I have six elderly cats, and a few of them oftentimes leave smelly pee puddles to register their disdain at whatever cats get 'peed off' about. It's not a litter box problem and, although I've caught one or two of them doing it, I can't blame them all. This product works great on fresh messes as well as dried ones. After blotting up fresh pee pods, I saturate the area with Rocco & Rossi's odor remover and let dry. For dried stinky stuff, I just saturate the area and let it dry. It has a pleasant odor and completely eliminates the ammonia odor. Believe me, I've tried all kinds of products, and this one works the best. I buy gallons now just to have on hand. It's better than smelling that awful pee!" —mona mia

    Get it from Amazon for $19.93.

    Rocco & Roxie is a family-owned small business named after the Magleby family's pets Rocco, a Labradoodle, and Roxie, a former shelter tabby cat. They make a variety of pet supplies, including cleaners, treats, grooming tools, accessories, and toys.

    12. A Litter Robot for anyone who always lets their cat's litter box go a little longer than it should without cleaning — and smells the consequences. This automatic litter box ensures they always have a clean box of litter, and all you have to do is throw away the bag of collected waste and put in a new liner. It's a win-win for both you and your kitty!

    Litter Robot

    When my mom first told me about this $500 automatic litter box she'd read about somewhere, my eyes just about popped out of my head thinking about spending that much on a thing that my cats poop in. But after thinking about it some more, I realized it's actually a pretty reasonable investment since I plan on owning cats forever but shamefully hate cleaning out their litter boxes as often as they really should be.

    I've been using the Litter Robot myself for three months now, and I'm pretty sure both me and my two cats are way happier for it. After a cat is done using it, the Litter Robot waits a set amount of time until the cat's presence is no longer detected, then begins to rotate, collecting the waste into a bag at the bottom while retaining the clean litter in the barrel. I usually don't detect a smell from it afterward, though once the bag starts to get really full, you might get a subtle reminder that you need to take it out. I only have to take out that bag about once a week, and a flashing light will let you know when it's full.

    Initially, the cats were a little spooked by the sound of the Litter Robot during a cycle, and for the first few weeks, they would just sit and stare at it, as if it would get up and run at them if they took their eyes off it. At this point, though, they've completely adjusted and accepted it as their way of life, making my life a heck of a lot easier while ensuring they always have a clean bed of litter. It's a pricey purchase, to be sure, but if cleaning out the litter box daily or even every other day is hard for you and you'd rather not think about it much at all, I say the Litter Robot is worth it. One thing to note: It's quite large, so make sure you have a dedicated space for it.

    Get it from Litter Robot for $549 (available in white or gray).

    Looking for a cheaper option? Here's another self-cleaning cat litter box from Amazon that reviewers like — it's smaller and utilizes disposable trays instead.

    13. Or a much cheaper hooded kitty litter box that cuts down on litter tracked outside *and* odor thanks to a disposable carbon filter up top. The lid can be lifted up for easy cleaning, and the jumbo size means even the biggest cats will have enough room to move around.

    The jumbo litter box set up in a corner with a mat underneath

    Before I upgraded to the Litter Robot, I used two of these hooded litter boxes for years, and they worked great, particularly for my 15-pound cat. They do a pretty good job of keeping odors from taking over that room, and the cover + flap is way more effective than regular litter boxes at preventing litter from scattering everywhere (though I still suggest pairing this with a litter mat). If you're looking for a jumbo box at a decent price, it doesn't get much better than this one!

    Promising review: "This litter box is by far the best one I've ever had. It has impeccable quality, it makes upkeep easy, and is great for my cats. I have two medium-sized male cats, who love to make messes when it comes to cat litter. I got this box because it had a cover and was large enough for them to be comfortable with using it. Neither of the cats had ever used a covered box before, so for the first three days I took the clear plastic door off so they could get used to the box itself. Once I put the door back on, the were puzzled for a while, but when they needed to do their business they used the door just fine. I highly recommend this box to anyone with cats! My cats still get some litter out of the box, but only the minimal amount that they need to shake off their paws after being in cat litter. Not an issue at all, simply an inevitable occurrence." —Payton

    Get it from Amazon for $40.98 (available in two colors).

    14. And a top-entry litter box with a grooved lid designed to help remove leftover litter particles from your cat's paws as they climb out. If you have a dog in the house who likes to go digging in your cat's litter box, this design can also keep them out of your cat's poop spot.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Reviewers say it works for both small and bigger cats alike! One reviewer's tip: Make sure the side without the grooved lid is facing a wall so that cats can't jump out that way (the grooved side is what prevents litter tracking).

    Promising review: "I love this litter box for far more than the purpose I bought it for. It has an elegant design and looks so much nicer in my house than a normal ugly litter box. The box is deep enough and the cover is high enough that urine cannot possibly leak out. The cover to this litter box works so much better at getting the litter off my cat’s paws than a rug or mat, and my floors are so much cleaner because of that. I absolutely love this litter box." —Richard

    Get it from Amazon for $37.99 (available in three colors).

    15. A double-layered litter mat sporting a honeycomb design that catches and traps litter so it doesn't scatter across your floor. You can then press in on the sides to open up the mat and dump the trapped litter back into your litter box, or slide it into the trash can, whichever you prefer!

    amazon.com, Jenae Sitzes / BuzzFeed

    I've been using this trapper mat for about a month now, and while it's pretty much impossible to eliminate all litter from your home if you own a cat, this mat has made keeping the floor of my litter box room MUCH more manageable. Unlike other mats, where the litter just kind of sits on top and eventually gets kicked elsewhere, this mat is designed so that the litter falls through the holes and stays inside the mat until you're ready to dump it. It's made out of an EVA material that's supposed to be gentle enough for cat paws, and my two kitties don't seem to have a problem walking on it. I use the 24- by 15-inch mat on top of a mat I'd bought previously, but if I could go back I'd absolutely buy the larger 30- by 24-inch mat to extend the coverage area. Note that the mat will probably have a fold down the middle when it first arrives, but just give it some time and weigh it down with something if needed; it'll lay flat.

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

    16. A pair of water-resistant dog leggings (!!!) to keep not only your dog's paws but also their legs free of dirt and mud so they don't track it right back into your house. They connect over your dog's back for a snug, adjustable fit, and the bottoms have waterproof grips so your pup doesn't slide around on rainy days!

    Promising review: "I love the Walkee Paws. Unlike the other type of dog boots, these stay on her tiny feet. My little girl never liked walking in the rain or snow. The first time I put them on her inside the house, she was hesitant to walk but with a little coaxing she walked off the rug onto the wooden floor. When she realized that she didn't slip, she started acting silly running back and forth in the house. Now she loves walking in the snow and water puddles." —Cynthia C.

    Get them from Walkee Paws for $39.99 (available in sizes XS–L and in eight colors).

    17. A packet of plant-based compostable dog wipes you should have on hand to wipe away everyday dirt and grime without having to give your pup a full bath. These wipes are gentle and hypoallergenic, making them safe for dogs with sensitive skin.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "OK, so it might be a bit much to say that I’m ‘obsessed’ with dog wipes, right? Wrong, they are just that good. I’ve tried so many dog wipes but none compare to these. The wipes are extra damp (and stay that way even after opening) which means one wipe goes a long way. They also smell great, have a thick feel, and are hypoallergenic. I have a dog who has sensitive skin and we use these wipes after walks to get rid of allergies. Game changer. Try them out. You won’t be disappointed!" —I Only Shop Online

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in 100- or 400-count and lavender or unscented)

    18. A water-resistant reversible sofa cover if them jumping on the sofa is simply inevitable and you want an easy-to-clean solution. Elastic straps help it stay in place and prevent sliding, so your furry friend can sprawl out with you on the couch without worry of damage.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "So first off, super shocked at how soft it is! I thought it was gonna be kinda rough or like a weird material. So love that! Second, fits my couch perfect. Third, the little stretchy straps were great! I thought it would have the adjustable ones but I’ve been looking a lot so I probably just assumed it was like others I had seen but no, its stretchy straps so super easy! The beige side pretty closely fits the color of my couch too so that’ll be nice! My dogs say thanks too! Since they won’t have to sneak on the couch anymore lol. They were shedding so bad and tearing up the cushions."—Mary t.

    19. Grooming gloves for dogs or cats who shed huge wads of hair every time you go to pet them — at least now, your petting sessions can double as grooming time, and you can prevent some of that excess hair from ending up on your furniture. Plus, many pets really enjoy how this glove feels.

    Promising review: "WOW!!! I brushed the cat with our regular brush and got a bit of fur...then I used the glove and got enough fur off that cat to knit a wig for my bald head! AMAZING!!!! The cat purrs and seems to enjoy the process, or maybe she just likes all the new attention she gets from everyone wanting to see how much fur we can get off her..... poor cat looks like she's lost 10 pounds. The best part of this whole thing is that there aren't cat hairballs all over our hardwood floors. We can pick up the cat without a cloud of hair trailing behind us. This product is every bit as good as described." —GS

    Get it from Amazon for $11.19 with 20% off coupon (available in three colors).

    20. A pack of extra-absorbent Glad activated carbon training pads you can lay out for puppies, senior dogs, or even elderly cats. They can absorb up to three cups of urine and turn it into a gel for easy cleanup, and they erase the odor while preventing damage to the floor below.

    Reviewer's picture of pee-stained mat that absorbed the liquid
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These pads look so much fresher than the traditional white and blue ones. The charcoal really absorbs odor and quickly absorbs urine. My four chihuahuas can't pee enough to go through the bottom and they really pee a lot! I am able to get more use out of these than a traditional pad because they do such a great job. The black color also takes care of the nasty yellow stains and just turns a slightly darker shade of black. These are about the same price as Hartz pads, but I would readily pick these. The first time I tried them I was hooked." —Mirandzaaa

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+.

    21. A rubber-bristled broom that's like a magnet for pet hair, grabbing it out of your rugs and carpets. The built-in squeegee is also effective on hardwood, tile, and other flat surfaces to clean up any messy spills. Plus, the handle extends up to 5 feet long!

    Promising review: "I bought this broom based on the tons of great reviews and I am not disappointed. I love this broom! It is lightweight but sturdy. I have used it on tile floors and carpet and it does a great job of getting the pet hair, lint, and dirt. I like this so much better than our traditional push broom. It is very easy to clean after use just using my hand, unlike our old broom. It also has a telescoping handle so that you can adjust it to whatever height you need. There is also a squeegee for doing the house windows and the car windows. I highly recommend it." —Joyce V

    Get it from Amazon for $12.44.

    BuzzFeed Shopping editor Emma Lord, a self-professed shedder, also swears by this broom! Check out her full FURemover Broom review for more deets.

    22. An interactive cat toy if you're tired of stepping on and tripping over dozens of toys that your beloved feline doesn't even look at anymore. Something about this piece of wire and cardboard just does something to cats, and it takes up very little space — a plus if you're tired of the clutter.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Simply the best cat toy you can buy. My cats go wild as soon as I pull this out. Nothing else gets them up and moving like this toy now that they’re getting older. Seems silly that they love a simple wire with a cardboard tip, but there’s something about it that’s irresistible. Buy it. Your cats will love it." —KB

    Get it from Amazon for $1.73.

    23. Or a toys basket for neatly storing them all in one place if you've basically forgotten what your floor looks like without plush toys and chewing bones.

    Promising review: "I like the decoration style and simplicity this dog toy basket provides. I find it durable and spacious enough for several toys and bones. My dog likes the drag it into the living room and dump the whole thing out. She likes that she can easily move it around. I like that I can have it be in an easily accessible place that doesn’t distract from the rest of the room. I would purchase again." —Eileen Daniels

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in four colors). Psst — here's a similar one for cats if you need it!

    24. A treat-dispensing licky mat to distract pups when they're anxious, like when you need to give them a bath!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My 30-pound Aussie puppy loves to play rough and get muddy. Bathing her in the bathtub is impossible. Showering with her was better, but not fun for either of us, before the Aquapaw mat. Boo loves peanut butter, so we smeared some on the mat, then stuck it to the wall of the shower door. She was focused on the peanut butter and I was able to bathe her fairly quickly. It was, by far, the easiest time we had bathing her. The mat stuck perfectly to the shower door. The nubs have a nice depth and hold a lot of smear (maybe too much). There was almost nothing left to clean on the mat, but it cleaned easily. I highly recommend this product!" —zoso babe

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95.

    25. A handcrafted, zero-waste shampoo bar made with natural mineral clay and cold-pressed oils — just lather and massage it into your dog's wet fur, then rinse well. A light fragrance of lavender and cedar will be left behind!

    26. A professional pet grooming brush to cut down on trips to the groomer for longer-haired animals. This stainless steel comb will detangle and remove so much dead hair, you'll have enough fur left over for a new puppy.

    Promising review: "We have two Australian Shepherds who shed a lot. Our robot vacuum is scheduled to run once a day for one and a half hours, but we still needed something to help limit the amount of hair in the house and keep both dogs cool during the hot central Florida summers. This brush was highly rated and we already had the pet hair remover to clean clothing, bedding, and carpet, which we are very happy with so we knew the quality was going to be there. I’ve tried other brushes and none take off nearly as much hair as this one does. At the end of a grooming session I have enough hair to equal one small puppy. While both dogs do not exactly enjoy being groomed, they put up with it and appear much happier afterward because, I assume, of the increased air flow through their hair. Very good product, would recommend!" —Dalton

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

    27. An air purifier that captures pet dander and odor along with dust, smoke, pollen, and other indoor irritants that you don't see but can be harmful for you and any children. Once you see how nasty the filter gets, you'll wish you picked one up years ago. It works quietly in the background to clean your air — all you have to do is replace the filter every six to eight months!

    Promising review: "Let me begin by saying that I did not believe in air purifiers until I tried this product. After I added another Maine Coon cat to my condo, something had to be done to combat the litter box smell that was overtaking my upstairs hallway. I purchased the two-pack and have no regrets. You will notice immediate results in your home's air quality. One unit is enough to handle an open hallway with two litter boxes! I use the other in my living room to control the pet dander that sometimes floats in the air. Bottom line: Buy this product for crisp clean air that you will notice immediately." —Robert Robinson

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99 with $10 coupon (available in black or white and in a two-pack).

    28. A hard floor cleaner because there's nothing worse than finding a big stain on your pristine wood floor (and a guilty-looking pet nearby). This bio-enzymatic formula is designed to remove both new and deep-set stains from sealed wood without causing any damage to the natural finish.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Owning two older dogs, and frequently fostering dogs, I have particular life experience cleaning up after dog accidents in the home. Bless their hearts, dogs are still animals, and animals have to potty sometimes outside the confines of generally accepted locations (i.e., outside). One of the most difficult urine messes is when there are hardwood floors they tinkle on. A dog peed in a corner of my living room, which of course has parquet wooden floor tiles, and which of course, I did not notice until a day or two later when the pee had already soaked into the wood parquet tiles, causing swelling and deep odor. Thankfully, I found Nature's Miracle specifically designed for hardwood floors. I was skeptical that it would work as well as the reviews noted, but it truly worked better than any other brand of urine cleaner that I have tried. It managed to effectively clean the stain, and eliminate the odor, even though the mess wasn't discovered right away." —HelloReese

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in two sizes).

    29. A discreet litter box if you'd rather not see or smell your cat's litter box any more than you have to. It lets your kitty have privacy while giving you a handy end table to place things on top of. The two doors give you easy access to the box (which slides out) for cleaning.

    Overstock

    There's also a sliding tray at the top for storing cat accessories so you can keep them out of sight! While a high-walled litter liner is included to contain the litter box, note that you'll still need to use your own litter box or pan inside this end table.

    Promising review: "I got this to protect my new floors from my cats' kicking litter everywhere. First, it was pricey, but it's a pretty little cabinet that keeps everything contained. Second, my cats absolutely love it. I'd have gotten this years earlier if I'd only known." —Alice K.

    30. An alcohol-free, deodorizing doggie paw-fume to leave your pup smelling fresh in between baths. It also helps condition your dog's coat to leave it feeling softer!

    31. A pair of food storage containers for particularly smart pets who will tear open their food bags if left out. These airtight bins keep your dog or cat food fresh for longer and also make it easy to reach in and scoop out the amount you need.

    You get a large 33-quart bin and a smaller, stackable 12-quart bin, so if you have both a dog and cat, you could store their food separately, or just use the top bin to store supplies. You could also use the bottom bin for storing cat litter and the top bin for food — the options here are endless! The wheels on the bottom bin make it easy to roll around, a helpful feature for those with limited mobility or less arm strength. A scoop is included!

    Promising review: "These storage boxes are excellent for protecting pet food from bugs and mice. The smaller container can hold just under an 11-pound bag of cat food. The cat food we use has crunchy and soft morsels. The soft morsels stay soft and the scent from the food when opening the container is fresh and sustained. The bottom container holds up to 25-pound bag of dog food. It has the same results too. The wheels make it convenient to store in a pantry or closet and slide out when needed." —Shannon Campbell

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (available in eight colors).

    32. A wall-mounted organizer so everything you need for your daily walks and trips to the park is ready in one spot when you need it. Hang up your leash, keys, waste bag, and other accessories instead of keeping them cluttered on the counter or in a drawer.

    Promising review: "It's the perfect fit for my dog's stuff. Sturdy and well built, small enough not to take up unnecessary space, large enough to hold everything I need to take my dog out." —KrissytheFoxx

    Get it from Amazon for $25.95.

    33. A Petmate pooper scooper that makes it easy to clear your yard of all the little brown presents your pup has left you scattered everywhere. Hooks on either side of the bin hold waste bags tight as you clean and make it easy to dispose of afterward.

    Promising review: "I used to buy Dogipot waste bags. That can get expensive when you have three large dogs like I do. I scoop as much poop as I can until the swivel bin is about half full, dump it into a trash bag, and continue until the back yard/front yard is spotless and clean. The rake is fabulous for collecting poop when my dogs choose to go in the rocks we have surrounding the pool or the palm trees. Fabulous product and well worth the money." —Natalie Smith

    34. A pet gate to keep your fur babes out of areas you don't want them in so pet hair and dander don't even have a chance to build up in those spaces. If the cat's allowed but not bigger animals, a little pet door lets them pass through while keeping other out (sorry, Fido!).

    Promising review: "We just rescued a kitty but already have a dog at home. They are getting to know each other slowly but the dog is very curious and tends to play 'follow the leader' with the cat wherever she goes. We bought this gate so that when the cat wants some time to herself she can go into the spare room and the dog can't follow. It works VERY well. It's a nice height." —SC128

    Get it from Amazon for $44.99.
