    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 for dogs with various skin-related issues, from hair loss and dryness to rashes, bug bites, itchy wounds, and more.

    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 so your rat, ferret, guinea pig, or other small fur baby can curl up inside and stay cozy when you're not at 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 $12.99+ (available in four colors and styles).

    4. An elevated pet bed to keep your pup cool and comfy during their outdoor naps. The mesh center keeps air circulating for breathability and keeps your dog off the ground when it's cold and wet.

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

    My (Griffin's) dog, Wrigley, (a 50-pound pit bull mix) has this bed and we prefer to call it his throne. We 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 $28.80+ (available in four colors, three styles, and sizes small–XL).

    5. A snout soother because ~winter is coming~ and you'll want to moisturize that snout when it gets chapped and crusty. This vegan, organic balm stick will heal your pupper's nose and leave it as buttery soft (and perfectly boop-able) as it was before.

    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 $5.95.

    6. A small animal tent with transparent sides so you can let your little pal(s) out of their cage to play and run around. It's super lightweight, so you can even carry it outside to let them get some fresh air.

    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 $11.99+ (available in six colors).

    7. A ChomChom pet hair remover that looks deceptively simple but is *highly* effective at removing pet hair from furniture. It's completely reusable and stores the pet hair in the back until you're ready to dump it!

    amazon.com

    I (Jenae) have a velvet couch and two cats — sadly, I didn't think about this being a deadly combination before buying the sofa — and the ChomChom is the only thing that strips alllll the pet fur off the couch. It's honestly kind of magical, because to look at this thing you wouldn't think it'd work THAT well, but it does. It's also extremely lightweight and easier to hold than a handheld vacuum, a plus if you have trouble gripping things, and it's reusable — no dealing with peel-off sticky tape like other pet hair removers.

    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.

    8. A medicated dog shampoo free of parabens, dyes, and soap for a gentle treatment that'll help relieve scaliness, inflammation, rashes, and other skin issues your poor pup might be dealing with.

    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 $8.95+ (available in two sizes).

    9. A dog car seat so your pup stays safe during car rides too. The seatbelt is adjustable for a comfortable fit, while the elevated seat can help with car sickness (and gives them a better view out the window).

    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 $59.95+ (available in five colors).

    10. Or a backseat car extender for bigger pups who need more leg room and space to sprawl out. It also ensure they won't go flying off the seat if you slam the brakes.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love that you can have the center folded down so puppers can still lay their heads on center console! We can have a car seat cover on the seat and this just lays on top. We put a blanket over top for coziness but this is super nice. If you need someone to sit in back seat, you can fold over one side and everyone is comfortable and safe. One reviewer advised theirs taco'd and collapsed — that may have been because the space between the seats was too far apart, although he was able to put a different board in the cover to make it work for his needs. We have two pit bulls — one about 55 pounds and one about 80 pounds — no issues. Fits nicely in the back seat of a Jeep Grand Cherokee! Absolutely perfect!" —Charlie22

    Get it from Amazon for $74.95+ (available in two colors).

    11. An insulated coat so your dog stays warm and cozy on those chilly winter walks. The hood can be buttoned back when you don't need it, and the coat is water-resistant in case you encounter rain while you're out and about.

    Chewy

    Promising review: "I bought this for my pittie/cocker spaniel mix puppy and it was perfect! I ordered a size big so she could grow into it, but two months later it’s too small, so I’ll be buying the biggest size they have. It’s warm, soft, easy to put on, easily stays on, has two working pockets, and even has a hood that can be snapped back when not in use. Love this jacket and am excited to buy the next one. Hopefully, she won’t grow out if this one. Living in North Dakota with a short-haired dog makes jackets essential for some pups." —Kryss

    Get it from Chewy for $19.99+ (available in seven sizes).

    12. Plus a pair of waterproof booties to protect their precious paws from rough terrain, hot pavement, and sharp objects; plus, it means less cleanup when it's time to go back inside.

    A reviewer's dog sitting on the ground outside wearing four black dog boots
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Awesome booties. These babies stay on. She runs, jumps and does everything she normally does, except she can't scratch if needed. (Just gonna have to wait, that's all.) Live in the northwest 'burbs of Chicago, and we walk a couple of miles a day. Our neighborhood has no sidewalks. When it sleets or snows, road salt is an issue. As most dogs do, she likes to off-road it, so it's in the snow, on the street, repeat. These keep her paws from getting packed up with snow and salt. Initially, it's kind of a hassle getting them on, but it gets easier. If you buy them, put them on your dog in the house and let figure them out. And strap 'em down good." —earshplitten

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ with $3 off coupon (available in six colors and seven sizes).

    13. Or a dog paw cleaning device designed to keep your home free of mud and dirt after your daily dog walks. The gentle bristles clean your pup's paws quickly and effectively, keeping the leftover mess inside the container for pouring out (instead of it being tracked onto your carpet and furniture).

    amazon.com

    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 $10.50+ (available in three sizes and six colors).

    14. A Furbo camera so you can check in on your dog when you're at work, on a trip, or anywhere outside the home. You can get push notifications when your dog is barking and talk to them through the app to calm them — you can even toss them a treat!

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

    An optional, add-on subscription unlocks even more functionality with the camera, including tracking specific dog activities (like when they jump on furniture), alerting you when a person comes into view, taking selfies when the dog is looking at the camera, and creating a 60-second doggie diary that shows you the highlights of your dog's day. A 90-day free trial of this subscription is included!

    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 $164.50.

    15. A top-entry litter box if litter is taking over your home, no matter how many times a day you sweep. The grooved lid on the side catches the litter on the cat's paws before they have a chance to track it elsewhere.

    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 $37.99+ (available in three colors).

    16. Or a self-cleaning litter box because cleaning up after your cat is a task nobody enjoys. No scooping, no smells — this box uses crystal litter that absorbs waste and odor, and one tray lasts for weeks.

    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, then replace with a new tray.

    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 $149.95+ (available in three styles and two colors).

    17. A hidden litter box enclosure that disguises your kitty's bathroom as stylish, contemporary furniture. A hole in the side lets your cat go in and out with ease, and the two cabinet doors give you easy access for cleaning.

    Wayfair

    Promising review: "Awesome piece! Super cute and end table-sized. Love that it's big enough to set up her food and water up top and overall way better to look at than a regular litter box." —Cameron

    Get it from Wayfair for $112.50+ (originally $139.99+; available in three colors).

    18. A wall suction treat dispenser to distract your pup with a tasty treat during bath time (and other less-than-pleasant activities like grooming and nail trimming).

    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.

    19. An interactive play wall that'll provide your guinea pig, rabbit, or other small animal with hours of entertainment. The woven texture of the wall and block toys encourage *lots* of chewing that'll bring them joy.

    The play wall with blocks and other various woven toys hanging off of it for chewing on
    Chewy

    Promising review: "Buns were all over this thing right out of the box. Lots of different bunny safe materials to chew on. The bolts (which are wooden) are too small to attach to a standard pen but it can easily be tied on instead. I'm sure they will destroy it rather quickly (though the mat looks more durable than most woven toys) but that's kinda how it works when they like something." —Sarah

    Get it from Chewy for $11.19+ (available in two sizes)

    20. A chic dog bowl set, because your beloved pup deserves only the best setup. The best part is you can customize the height so that your dog is at a natural, comfy position while they eat, and the big bowls also prevent water from splashing around.

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

    21. A pet carrier with a top-loading door (a must for pets who can't stand being put into a carrier) and mesh walls for breathability and visibility. A soft pad is included so your fur baby is comfy during travel.

    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 $23.69+ (available in two sizes and two colors).

    22. A dog water bottle for taking on the go so your pup always has water on hand to avoid dehydration.

    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 $14.91+ with $2 off coupon (available in two sizes and six colors).

    23. An Aspen self-warming bed if your pet is always looking for the warmest places to nap. This bed uses their own body heat and reflects it so they have a toasty place to nap at all times — including when you're not home to cuddle them.

    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 $25.16+ (available in five sizes and two colors).

    24. A macrame leash because you're already taking your pup for walks multiple times a day — why not have a cute leash while you're at it? This 4-foot macrame leash is sure to earn you (and your pup) plenty of compliments.

    Sir Dogwood

    Based in 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 nonprofit whose mission is to end pet homelessness.

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

    25. A pet life jacket so your dog can enjoy splashing around in a pool or lake without you having to worry. A handle at the top lets you lift them right out of the water if they're in need of emergency pickup.

    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 $15.19+ (available in seven colors and sizes XS–XL).

    26. Folding pet steps to help your pet up onto the couch, bed, or anywhere else that's higher up without straining their joints, particularly if they're in their senior years.

    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 $41.95+ (available in two colors and two sizes)

    27. A pet sofa they can roll around and nap on to their heart's content. The best part is that it's designed for pets, with stain- and water-resistant upholstery and a cushion cover you can just toss into the wash for a quick clean.

    It can hold pets up to 25 pounds (if you're really committed!). 

    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 $144.95 (available in two colors).

    29. A colorful bird toy designed to keep bird friends entertained and stress-free while hanging out in their cage. The colorful wood blocks and beads offer mental and physical stimulation, and all of it is made of bird-safe materials for everyday chewing.

    Chewy

    Promising review: "This a cute toy and just the right size for my Sun Conure, Booboo. Booboo usually takes days to get used to a toy but with this one she went right to it and started playing with it. Booboo loves to play with the tiny pacifiers, she grabs them with her beak and bobs her head up and down." —Jeimy

    Get it from Chewy for $9.27 (originally $11.79).

    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 $35/month (available in three sizes).

    31. A soothing anxiety jacket for dogs prone to getting a little stressed out. It applies gentle, constant pressure to calm your dog, whether it's general anxiety or triggered by things like fireworks and thunder. (BRB, looking for my own human-sized 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).

    32. A battery-powered nail grinder that's wayyy easier to use than traditional clippers (and less stressful for both you and your dog). It trims your pup's nails quickly and painlessly, and you'll no longer have to hear the sound of click-clacking as they walk around.

    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 $27.34.

    33. A chew toy set, but make it ~aesthetic~. These pastel toys are so nice to look at, you won't even mind having them on your floor. And they're ultra-durable, so your pup won't rip them to shreds right away.

    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.

    34. A touchless vacuum to make your dustpan obsolete by sucking up every last piece of pet hair, dirt, and dust without a single lingering piece left on your 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 $149 (available in three colors).

    35. A grooming glove so you can love on your pet and give them what feels like a relaxing massage — while also removing a bunch of excess hair they would have shed all over your home.

    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 $7.99+ (available in three colors).

    36. Or a pet grooming tool with super thin stainless steel teeth to groom and detangle fur, especially on longer-haired pets. The result: clean, healthy-looking hair that looks like they just hit the salon for a blowout.

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

    Promising review: "Honestly, this brush was a lifesaver for us. We have an American bully, and although he has a very short coat, he sheds like crazyyyyyy!! We swept balls of hair on a daily basis, and the car would be infested with hairs after one single ride. We bought different brushes, but neither seemed to help. As you can see in the pictures, that amount of hair was after two strokes of the brush… TWO STROKES. He seems to love the feeling of it brushing on him so i know it’s not hurting him. Definitely recommend!!" —Itzel Ramirez

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

    37. An underwater gallery to take your aquarium to the next level. Your fish will love darting in and out of these caves, and they add a nice bit of decoration to your tank as well.

    Promising review: "I am so pleased with these caves! They are far superior to what you will find at the local pet store. I waited a long time before buying them because of the price, but they are a better value than what I've bought previously and look and feel far more natural." —CartwheelKat

    Get it from Chewy for $64.08 (originally $74.95).

    38. A suction cup cat hammock so your cat has the *best* view while they nap in the sun (and another place to sleep besides your furniture).

    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 $16.50.

    39. A three-tier cat tree condo to give your cat a little space inside your home that's entirely theirs to climb, scratch, play, and nap on.

    Promising review: "My kitty absolutely loves her new tree. Very easy to put together. I added some more toys to hang down off of the top perch, which she loves. It’s also great for my small space!" —Kat

    Get it from Target for $36.99.

    40. An LED collar for those inevitable nighttime walks when you want to make sure your dog (especially if they have dark fur) stays safe and visible to traffic. It also helps you more easily locate them in the dark if they're not on a leash.

    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 product's 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 three 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

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes XS–L and nine colors).

    41. A handheld dog shower attachment designed to penetrate thick fur and clean their undercoat with a contoured spray that offers maximum coverage. Your dirty pup will be left looking and smelling fresh as daisies.

    Chewy

    Promising review: "I just used this to give my 6-month-old, 50-pound German Shepherd a bath and it was a GAME-CHANGER! Up until this point, we’ve been doing baths outside with the hose and she would freak out. We’d all end up soaking wet and it was always a traumatic experience for everyone involved. But with the WaterPik, I hooked it right up to our shower head with the provided diverter, and she sat perfectly, ears-back content like she was at a spa. It’s not too forceful to scare her, but forceful enough to soak through her thick fur. I love the ability to adjust the width of the spray for areas like her face and tail. Can’t recommend this highly enough!!!" —Rosie

    Get it from Chewy for $33.29 (originally $49.99).

    42. A Snuggle Puppy your dog can cuddle up with in a variety of anxious situations, from crate training to travel anxiety. This stuffed toy has a "Real Feel" heartbeat that's comforting to dogs who curl up next to it, and yes, it's as adorable as it sounds.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $39.95 (available in five colors).

    43. A cat scratcher toy that's both a scratching pad and a toy with a little ball that rolls along the outer rim. Most kitties won't be able to ignore the lure of this two-in-one toy.

    The cat scratcher toy
    PetSmart

    My (Jenae's) youngest cat loves to sit on this ball and scratcher toy multiple times a day and survey the room, to the point where we now refer to it as his "throne." He also loves to bat at the ball and watch it go 'round and 'round — it never gets old for him.

    Promising review: "I bought this for our new kitten. This is her favorite toy. Guaranteed for hours of entertainment. She loves chasing the ball around the track." —catmom99

    Get it from PetSmart for $19.99.

    44. Catnip-infused felt balls sure to capture your favorite feline's attention and keep them occupied when you need to get work done.

    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 $3.75+ (available in six styles).

    45. A pack of dog training pads for larger pups who can't always make it outside before they "go." The extra size makes it a good option for laying inside a crate overnight as well.

    Promising review: "We have an 8-month-old English Mastiff puppy who is currently 115 lbs. These pads are the best! He is an indoor dog as well as our other Mastiffs. We never have an accident in the house, because he knows to go on these pads. We are slowly training him to go outside and are relying on these pads while at work. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND these pads to all dog owners. You've got a big thumbs-up!!" —Boikoff

    Get it from PetSmart for $7.79+ (available in packs of 10, 50, or 150).

    46. An automatic pet feeder because there's nothing worse than a hungry cat, as they WILL make you sure you know they are hungry. This feeder lets you schedule meal times and exact portions so your impatient kitty gets the right amount of food at the same time every day — no more knocking over objects to get your attention.

    amazon.com

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $109.95.

    47. A stainless-steel fountain if your cat's always trying to drink out of the faucet. Most cats prefer to drink from running water rather than a stale bowl and end up drinking more water with a fountain like this (which is healthy for them long-term).

    Chewy

    Promising review: "Our three fur babies (cats Wally, Simon, and Jasper) love this fountain! Before finding this fountain Simon was always very anxious when approaching the water bowl. Now he appears to have no qualms at all and drinks both from the fountain and the bowl. It is large enough for all three to drink at one time. The moving water is the key! They love it and we love it! Our fur babies are now well-hydrated!" —DianaV

    Get it from Chewy for $74.95

    48. A two-tier pet food storage container so your pet's kibble stays fresh for as long as possible AND to prevent particularly sneaky animals from breaking into their food bag (speaking from experience here).

    PetSmart

    The two-tier design means you could store both your dog and cat food here, or use the top container for easy access to treats!

    Promising review: "We have two dogs, one over 80 pounds and one under 15 pounds. We had been looking for a food storage solution that helps us with both dogs. The bottom portion holds a 24-pound bag of food for our big dog, and the top portion holds a little more than a 6-pound bag for our little one. Especially being on wheels, this is going to work great for us." —Jake0875

    Get it from PetSmart for $24.99 (originally $32.99; available in five colors)

    49. A handy device to put an end to everyone in your house asking each other, "Did you feed the dog?" multiple times a day.

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $7.24.

    50. Finally, a puffy bagel-style dog bed you can customize with your pup's name for a special touch. Your fur baby might not know their name is on the bed, but they WILL know how luxuriously comfy it is.
