    34 Things That'll Help Keep Your Pet From Trashing Your Home

    Turns out you can have pets *and* a clean living space.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors.

Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A TruePet Shark vacuum that'll pull a bunch of pet hair from rugs and floors as well as hard-to-reach nooks and crannies you thought were already clean — thanks to its powerful suction, helpful tools, and deep, deep cleaning abilities.


    Promising review: "I own three short hair dogs and a mid-length hair cat. I felt like I was being eaten by hair in my house. I wanted a vacuum that would get both carpet and hardwood floor with the furniture as well. This one does it all, the True Pet Shark is the best most versatile vacuum I have ever owned. The suction is amazing and even after shampooing my area rugs this vacuum still pulled hair out of the rugs. The clear dust catcher shows what you are getting up, and it is a bit gross to think of, but I clean it every time so I know what it is getting up. Amazing results, and I would highly recommend this vacuum to anyone. The attachments are easy to use and the pet attachment is amazing it has its own beat bar and is motorized. So happy I ordered this vacuum. My husband is even shocked by the amount we are getting after cleaning and sweeping with other stuff. You will not be sorry you bought this vacuum if you have pets. The dust catcher is even easy to empty and there's no touching of dirt — it just falls out.." —Athena

    2. A doggy doorbell to help your pup ask to go outside before there's a *big accident* to clean up.

    A dog sitting next to a door with the bells

    Promising review: "Now my dog wants to be outside ALL the time!! Our dearly departed buddy Dex never needed anything to tell us he needed to go out. He came over, barked once, and we went out. But our new Boston Terrier puppy Buster was just sitting by the door in silence til he peed! We felt horrible, he kept not getting treats, we needed a solution! So we got him a doorbell to let us know 'hey! Mom and Dad, I need to go out!' It took less than 48 hours of bell ringing to get the gist. We actually took off the top set and put it on an old leash and put it on the outside so he could tell us when to come in. He just sits outside and sunbathes in his glorious faux grass dog yard. He rings the bells when he wants to potty, he rings the bells to sunbathe, he rings them to just make us get exercise haha! Best invention ever!"—Michelle

    3. A nail grinder that's much easier (and...strangely more fun?) than using traditional nail clippers to keep your pet's claws from scratching up your entire home.

    A before and after of a dog's nails

    Promising review: "I don’t normally write reviews, but I felt this one warranted one! I have a 6-year-old mini dachshund and trimming nails has always been rough!! Screaming and biting (from the dog). I’ve tried other nail grinders and she was terrified of them. I came across this one and thought I’d give it a try. It took only five minutes to do ALL FOUR paws! She held perfectly still and didn’t fight me a single bit!! She even wagged her tail when we were done!! Hallelujah I think we found the tool for us!!!"—Carrie Ward

    Get it from Amazon for 129.99 (available in two colors).

    4. A fast-acting carpet spot-removing spray to remove those stains you thought you'd never be able to get rid of.

    Promising review: "This stuff is AMAZING! I was a little skeptical because I have some carpet stains I’ve let sit for a while because I didn’t have any cleaner at the time of the accident. The accidents have included coffee spills and poorly cleaned cat barf stains. I ordered this because I didn’t want to spend the money on a carpet cleaning service plus you have to be out of your house too long. This stuff was INCREDIBLE. You just spray a concentrated amount and then scrub the stain away. It worked in every single stain I had and was super quick and easy. 100% recommend if you need a good spot cleaner!" —Kimberly

    Get it from Amazon for $11.97+ (available in two sizes).

    5. Some wood polish and conditioner with beeswax and orange oil that'll impressively hide blemishes from your scratchy lil' pets.

    Promising review: "This stuff is absolutely AMAZING. My wife and I were getting tired of looking at our worn-out cabinets and wood paneling and were very close to paying a professional thousands of dollars to refinish it all, but then we came across this product. Our paneling and cabinets were looking rough. We have two dogs who jumped up and scratched places. We also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were. Several other areas were just worn from heavy traffic. This stuff was like a magical eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemish. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let it sit for 20 minutes before wiping it off with a clean towel. Everything looks brand-new. I'm buying a couple more so we can finish our cabinets and wood paneling. We're so glad we found this product." —Kris

    6. A FURemover squeegee broom that reviewers say attracts hair like a magnet. All that fur and fuzz hiding deep in your carpet is no match for this thing, and while pet hair is the focus, it'll do an impressive job cleaning up water, dirt, and dust too.

    Promising review: "I really didn’t expect this to work. We’ve had short-haired cats for years and I had a rubber upholstery brush that never seemed to do anything. Well, we recently got a dog — a black Great Pyrenees mix. There is fur everywhere. Our downstairs is all hard flooring with area rugs and I hate lugging my Shark vacuum every couple of days but just daily sweeping with a regular broom wasn’t cutting it. I decided to take a chance on this broom and I am so happy I did. It takes some elbow grease but it gets the fur off the area rug in my living room... Not only is it great for getting the fur off rugs, but it’s also even better on the hard floors. My regular broom catches some of the hair (which I then have to clean off by hand) but much of it just swirls away in the breeze the sweeping creates. This broom actually collects even the tiny stray hairs and deposits them in the dust pile without me having to get my hands dirty (literally)." —Sarah R.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.44+ (available in three sizes and in different sets; replacement pieces also available).

    7. An easy-to-use doggy foot cleaner to clean your pup's paws more easily and effectively after those muddy and snowy potty trips so you aren't swimming in paper towels *and* so your pooch doesn't track dirt all over your house because somehow their paws still aren't totally clean. Now you can be sure they're spotless before they climb all over the furniture you specifically told them is off limits, SMH.

    Model using the cleaner on a dog's paw

    Promising review: "Listen — I live in Pittsburgh. It seems to rival Seattle in rainfall lately. It rains for a week at a time, then it snows, then the snow melts and it rains again. Our German shepherd was destroying our carpet with his mud-filled paws despite the sea of towels at the back door and wiping them off. This thing has been an absolute lifesaver, honest! I used it a few times 'dry' on the dog to get him used to it, but the bristles are soft silicone. He’s a prissy dog and tolerates it really well. It’s easy to clean after use, dump the water and rinse well with hot water. It’s only three pieces, easy to disassemble to give a good soaking (it’s dishwasher safe but I’m not loving the idea of dirt/poop running in the d/w with my plates, ha ha, so I soak it once a week). HIGHLY RECOMMEND — I know, it totally looks like a gimmicky product, but this thing is worthy of 10 stars and two thumbs up!" —MrsP2012

    Get it on Amazon for $14.99+ (available in three sizes and six colors).

    8. A bowl mat so every time your overly-excited pets cause a lil' spill, there won't be such a big mess for you to deal with.

    The mat with a bowl of food and water dispenser

    Promising review: "My kitten is a VERY messy eater and always digs and scratches everywhere around her bowl so food scatters all over the floor. This mat is great! It didn’t smell funky when it arrived (yes, some stuff I bought has smelled awful), the bowl isn’t able to slide and knock over, and it is water resistant so it’s 100% easy to clean. It doesn’t roll up around the corners like some mats I had so food won’t get stuck underneath it. LOVE and highly highly recommended"—Em🐾

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in two sizes and eight colors)

    9. A pet hair remover that'll quickly and easily pull *a lot* of pet fur off of carpets, couches, car seats to keep up with your sheddy lil' fur baby.,

    Promising review: "I was a little skeptical at first, but this product works great for getting rid of of dog hair. We use it on our furniture and it works so well. I am so glad we tried it. We would purchase it again if we ever need to." —BDP

    Get it from Amazon for $10.19 (available in packs of one, two, three, or four).

    10. A baby gate to keep your nosy pet from exploring and making a huge mess in areas that are ~off limits~.

    A puppy behind the baby gate

    Promising review: "We have a two-story house, and we used to allow our dogs to go upstairs anytime they wanted. We have carpet upstairs and wood floor downstairs, and sometimes one of our dogs will go upstairs at night when everyone is asleep and have an accident (pee or poo). So we decided to buy a pet gate, so we can stop them from going upstairs at night. At least if they have accident downstairs it's easier to clean up because of the wood floor. The gate works very well, it’s very easy to install and to operate."—Samuel Z.

    11. Some water-resistant, all-season, adjustable-width doggie leggings with waterproof booties that'll keep your pupper's paws nice and clean after playtime outside while protecting them from sharp objects and slipping and sliding around. Plus, they're super comfy for your doggo, easy to take on and off and clean, and they come in a variety of adorable prints to match your furry friend's personal style!

    Walkee Paws, as seen on Shark Tank, is a woman-owned business launched in 2018 by New York City entrepreneur Lisa Baronoff as the first dog leggings retailer.

    Promising reviews: "Walkee Paws are perfect for my sheepadoodle! They help keep his paws clean and dry in the snow and rain and he doesn't seem to mind wearing them." —Erin

    "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 running back and forth in the house. Now she loves walking in the snow and water puddles. Thank you Walkee Paws!" —Cyntia C.

    Get it from Walkee Paws for $36.99+ (available in four sizes and eight colors)

    12. A pet corrector that emits a harmless hiss of air to interrupt chewing, scratching, and all-around mess making for dogs who just don't seem to understand the word NO.

    Reviewer holding the pet corrector as two dogs look up at it

    Promising review: "GET IT!!!!! Wow just wow! Have a three month old puppy who would constantly nip and bite you whether you were sitting or walking. Plus bite the furniture and couches even after long runs and walks. One spray gets her attention, and she stops and goes to get her toys and play with those. All I have to do is show the can most times." —AMC

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    13. An automatic litter box that does the dirty work for you, and is designed to sift out clumps so that your cat won't leave a fun trail of litter all over your house for you to clean up later.

    Promising review: "The crystals work so well, I didn't think they were using the box, I thought they were just going in and out. I had to witness them using it to believe it. No smell at all!! I will be buying another down the road." –Gloria Silvers

    Get it from Amazon for $169.95 (available in two styles and three colors).

    14. A Wi-Fi-enabled automatic dog and cat feeder that'll take care of keeping your pets fed even when you aren't around so they don't get antsy and destructive.

    The automatic pet feeder

    It links to iPhones, Androids, and Alexa so you can make sure your pets get their food whether you're miles and miles away or just busy in the next room.

    Promising review: "Works great, and I cannot recommend this enough! My cats throw up if they eat too much, so it is great being able to feed them very small amounts (1/8 cup) per feeding, up to 12 times per day. I upgraded to this WiFi model from the non-Wi-fi model and it is quite nice having the option to feed them with a click of a button on my phone. I also bought the splitter adapter that will make it work for two cats. This is a great and inexpensive alternative to buying a second feeder for almost $200. My cats used to fight over the one food bowl, but now that I can have two separate bowls there is no more fighting!" –Beachbum

    Get it from Amazon for $169.95.

    15. A TubShroom to keep your drain clog-free if you bathe your furry friends in the tub.

    A TubShroom covered with hair

    Promising review: "I should have discovered this years ago. Trying to give my dogs baths was a pain because of the hair that inevitably went (and blocked) the drain! I tried several differ items that was supposed to "catch hair" which was a waste of time and money. This thing is exactly what I needed! I tried it moments after I received it and it worked like a charm! Both dogs got a bath and I did not have to unclog the tub drain or pour chemicals down to unclog the drain. Best money I have spent in a long time! If you have pets BUY THIS!" —Todd L. Owens

    Get it from Amazon for $12.45+ (available in six colors).

    16. A pet odor eliminating candle that'll fill your home with the scent of lemon, linen, and florals instead of whatever bodily fluids your pet loves to expel to ruin your day.

    This is the most durable Magic Eraser with 3X the power of bleach.

    Promising review: "These things work wonders! We have two big dogs that leave dirt and scuff marks on our tan walls. Also, the paint that the builder used on our walls is not washable and when I try to clean the walls with a rag, it does not do the job. However, the magic eraser is the only thing that works to clean the walls. I am so grateful that I starting using these." —Amazon Customer

    Get a box of eight from Amazon for $13.98.

    18. A bottle of bitter apple spray you can spray on your belongings to make them taste bad to your pupper who just won't stop chewing. Of course, some dogs inexplicably find this flavor delicious so it's worth testing a little bit out to make sure they *actually* hate it before coating your whole house in the stuff.,

    Promising review: "I got a puppy. We love him, but literally he tries to chew everything. He chews the clothes on my body, carpet, wood, furniture, my fingers, EVERYTHING. We give him toys and make sure he has proper things to chew on and we spray this stuff anywhere he has a particular affinity to AND IT WORKS. It doesn't smell awful to me and I'm not going to taste it, but the smell alone drives him away from my furniture and carpet. This is a must-have if your dog is a chewer. I have heard some dogs don't mind the taste, but my guy gives me accusing looks every time I spray his favorite bannister rail, my shirt, my fingers, cords, the floor, and anything else he's taken a notion to chew." —Dee

    Get it from Amazon for $142.48.

    19. A powerful all-purpose cleaner concentrate so you can clean your entire animal-filled home without having to grab a different bottle for every task. It's tough on stains and will leave your space smelling like soothing essential oils instead of pet vom.

    Promising review: "I am a believer! I ordered the sampler because I was indecisive about what fragrance to purchase and I’m happy that I did because I love them all. The cleaning power is unmatched. I previously used a “Mrs” a “Pine” and a “Fab” — this cleaner hands down beat them all. It got stains out of my couch, cleaned a cat poop stain, milk from my toddler and removed stains from my walls." —Casandra

    20. A bottle of carpet and upholstery cleaner with a fabric-safe brush attached to it so you can easily lift stains and neutralize odors that have been lingering in your carpets and furniture.

    Promising review: "I LOVE this Woolite carpet stain remover with its rubbing brush. We stayed for some weeks at dear friend’s home while we were waiting to move and they were out of town. Their cat had done some nasty things in their rooms. We thought we’d show some of our appreciation by cleaning some of these spots off their light gray carpeting. IT WORKED! THEY NOTICED! THEY LOVED IT! I don’t know about the cat. So we bought this house with white carpets. Who puts in white carpets?? Anyways, we have white carpets. So I bought these Woolite cans and know they will be used and will do a great job." —Sany123

    21. Some Wondercide Spray – it uses natural essential oils to repel and prevent fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes that you don't want on your pet or in your home.

    Promising review: "We never had problems with ticks or fleas while living in the city, but six months ago we moved to the country. Our two dogs (Doberman and small pit bull mix) run around outside and sometimes in the woods on our property. We started finding ticks on them. The vet recommended $50+ collars 'that most other owners buy for their dogs.' We scoffed at the expense for two dogs. I had remembered seeing this product on Shark Tank and had saved it on my lists here. Started using it on our dogs three months ago, Doberman has had not one tick and the pit bull had one, on the back of his ear, which we found super quick. This has been a great natural product to use out here. And there are tons of ticks. I think I'm going to start using it for myself per reading other reviews." —KitKat

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in four sizes and scents).

    22. A ChomChom roller pet hair remover for anyone who can never seem to get all of their pet's fur off of their clothes and furniture. This thing has over 35,000 5-star reviews for a reason! Just roll it over your fuzz-covered item of choice, and watch it lift the fur right off like some sort of wizardry.

    Promising review: "Chom Chom, you da real MVP. I've had it in my possession for like two hours and I've cleaned everything. The couch, the blinds, the cat tree pad, the chair, I'm obsessed. I feel like this thing should win an award for being so awesome. I feel like it should be in raffle baskets and giveaways and silent auctions for every event that highlights "things cat people need." It's better than those sticky rollers, it's better than the one-directional velvet wand thing that I always use the wrong way and make a mess, it's the best. I don't have any before pictures because as soon as I started rolling stuff I went crazy." —Meowser

    23. A pack of puppy pads that absorb liquids and turn them into a gel so cleanup is less of a nightmare.

    Promising review: "If you’re on the fence about buying these, please don’t be! I almost didn’t buy these because they seemed too good to be true and boy was I wrong! I have four dogs, two are unaltered 70+ lb males. Long gone are the days where you pick up a dripping pee pads or the smell never really goes away. You can even lay these face down on liquid and it will soak it all up and turn it to gel in about 30 seconds. During a rain storm we found out we had a leak in our RV and used these for that too! They are completely worth the money and I will be buying this brand only from now on!"—Annabeth Hartford

    24. A vet-approved Feliway diffuser that emits a calming pheromone to help soothe cats who tend to spray or engage in destructive activities.

    An orange cat sniffing the diffuser

    Promising review: "We have a large house and two neutered inside ginger fur-boys and one of them forgets from time to time where he's supposed to do his business. It recently got much worse when we were given two kittens by a neighborhood stray. This new (now neutered) boy and girl immediately come in when we open the door and are playful and loving but they live outside in our shed (and heated cat house). The problem is that their scent is prompting our forgetful boy to start marking in the two rooms the kittens come in to play. Anyway, long story longer, we placed one Feliway diffuser in the worst area and we are one week without incident anywhere. That prompted me to buy two more units just to cover the other areas the kittens play in."—DLM

    25. A carpet cleaning solution that'll deep clean your long suffering carpets who never agreed to having pets in the first place.

    Promising review: "What an amazing product! I have tried EVERYTHING to get rid of the dirt, grime, and pet accidents, but this is the only thing I've had success with! The area near my bathroom vanity was DISGUSTING. It is a high traffic area, as my husband and I use our his and hers sinks every day. Our puppy also likes that area as her 'accident' spot, even though we have puppy pads all over the house. The second photo is after just ONE pass using my Bissell carpet cleaner. I used 6 ounces of the Carpet Miracle, and filled the rest of the reservoir with piping hot water. The red spot you see left is hair dye (oops). I am positive that it will come out with another pass or two. The fragrance is not strong or overpowering in my opinion. I also used this in my entryway, and it yielded incredible results there, too. I highly recommend this product, and will be ordering more soon!" —Melissa

Whether you're lacking a backyard or just don't feel like making constant trips in the rain or snow, this long-lasting, disposable mat is the perfect option to make potty time a whole lot simpler.

    Promising review: "This is a lifesaver!! My fiancé and I had resigned ourselves to only purchasing rugs from Target and replacing them as needed, because of accidents our tiny pup, (with a tiny bladder), would have. I started buying Fresh Patch, which is real living grass, and our dog loves it. It typically lasts us a couple weeks depending on our work schedules, but it doesn’t smell and dogs naturally prefer to potty on grass so there’s no training involved. We go through way less carpet cleaner and can hold onto a rug we love now without worrying about stains." —lolobentley

    "I recently bought this after seeing it in many a BuzzFeed post (thanks, shopping colleagues!) and it is so worth it. My cats shed like it is their freaking job and I just can't keep up with it. One of them loves their regular brush but I have to empty it every two seconds and the other is terrified at just the sight of it. With this, I can just pretend I'm going in for a normal ol' petting session and they enjoy it!" —Chelsea Stuart

    Another promising review: "This glove is perfect for our one kitty who hates to be brushed. Our family recently added kitty number three, a big beautiful long-haired Maine Coon who despises being brushed or bathed. It was such a struggle as fine cat hair started taking over our life. Honestly, I did not think this grooming glove would work, but let me just say it is wonderful. Our kitty Nicki just loves the feeling it gives him, and we love the astounding amount of kitty his hair that is now in the glove and not on every surface in our home. Thank you wonderful seller. We LOVE this glove." —Colleen5991

    Promising review: "I've been training dogs for nearly 30 years, have tried every product on the market, and seen dogs medicated for so many emotional unbalances. I've tried many products and have noted that even medication can have no affect on a dog's condition. In my ongoing quest for products that help dogs to relax, I bumped into this cube on a dare: a friend popped one in my bag and said JUST TRY IT! So I did: I went home and powered it up while I was editing one of my books. I found it quite relaxing, but nothing and I mean nothing prepared me for what I saw when I turned around! My two kids, and four dogs were lolling about blissfully on the couch. The rest is history! I recommend these cubes to my clients and use them in my house (with both dogs and children) to signal naps and quiet time. I suggest them whenever my clients dogs have emotional upsets — expressed with excessive barking or destructive chewing, or to calm phobias like storm and separation anxiety. This little box and now her latest acoustic collar have improved the lives of some many dogs! Thank you!" —Sarah Hodgson, IAABC, author
