    1. A reusable dog hair remover brush so you can quickly get rid of layers of fur that have spontaneously grown on your couch, bed, comforter, or blanket with just a few swipes.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a longhair German Shepherd aka 'German Shedder' and two cats so I live with animal fur, nothing I can do about it, or so I THOUGHT. The Chom Chom is by far the best way to get rid of animal fur in my opinion. This thing is god-like, it makes fabric look so fresh, works perfectly on my suede couches and leaves that 'soft suede' look on them. It does what it's supposed to do perfectly, and it captures all the hair in an easy to clean bin." —Victor T.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    2. A broom-squeegee combo that's ready to rake up all fur balls from your carpets, rugs, tiles, and hardwood floors.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This thing just plain works. We got a mature golden retriever last year and were told he didn't shed. Then in the spring he started shedding badly. We were tired of hair everywhere and somehow I realized that dragging my shoe across the carpet balled the hair up. I found this product on a whim one day and knew it had to be better than my shoe! I ordered it and it was tough at first. The bristles pulled the hair up but then caught the tufts and spread them around. I found that using short quick strokes with the rake turned upside down got the best results. The backside is more like a squeegee and helps pull the hair up in long rolls and keeps the hair in one big pile." —Nick V.

    3. A Levoit air purifier to remove all pet hair and dander from the air the moment your pup even thinks about shedding.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this machine! I have five dogs, four of those are large and this little machine does WONDERS to control the dust and hair problem. I used to have to dust my furniture at least two times a week but now, once a month or every three weeks is perfect. I highly, HIGHLY recommend it." —tracie

    Get it from Amazon for $119.99.

    4. An ingenious paw cleaning mechanism for the pup who dares to come into the house with muddy tootsies. Just fill the cleaner with warm water, put your doggo's paw in, and let the soft bristles take care of the dirt.

    Promising review: "We live in a 1,000-square-foot apartment with hardwood floors in downtown Chicago, and our two 35-pound springer spaniels go outside six or more times each day, for exercise and to 'do their duty.' We've grown weary of them tracking dirt, salt, etc., all over the place. We've tried wiping their paws and this only dries them, but does nothing to clean. This thing really works! First of all, the Paw Plunger has an 'aperture' seal on the top, that keeps most of the water inside the receptacle. Secondly, it has scrubby brushes inside to remove grit, salt, dirt, etc. Thirdly, the handle on the side is very useful - instead of just dipping a dirty paw into a bucket of water, something that even the most chillaxin' pooch might have a problem with, you just hold the dog's paw and leg stationary, and move the Paw Plunger up and down via the handle. Genius!" —Dennis M.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    5. A paw pad moisturizer because you're not the only one who needs a nice foot rub from time to time. Both beeswax and vitamin E work together in this formula to protect your pupper's paws from hot pavement, sand, snow, and salt.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Used it because my dog would hurt his pads trying to run on hot concrete/asphalt or even in just the grass. His pads would develop blisters fast. It's hard to keep him off of areas where he can get burned easy especially in Texas but this helps a lot. Pictures don't do justice. Also helps with dry cracked noses!" —Sierra D.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    6. A dental powder you can inconspicuously sprinkle in the doggo's kibble to keep their teeth clean and breath fresh between cleanings.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I started to give this to my schnauzer exactly two months ago. His gum was swollen, and red. Now it looks much-much better, and his breath is much fresher now too. My dog loves the taste, I just pour it to his dry food, and he can't wait to eat. The food itself never gets this reaction. I will definitely buy it again." —Kathleen

    Get it from Amazon for $16.

    7. An FDA-approved sunscreen spray for the outdoor-dwelling pupparino who needs a little extra UV-protection.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My pup has discoid lupus, which is aggravated by UV. We live in high-altitude sunny Colorado so sun protection is a must. His face is the most affected area so I spray this on my hands and work it into his fur to get to the skin. In combination with Natural dog company’s Snout soother (and all the vet prescribed meds), this has helped our healing process. Thank you!" —VD

    Get it from Amazon for $17.95.

    8. A nail grooming and grinding tool that'll safely trim down your dog's clickety-clacks without much of a fuss from them.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I cannot recommend this product enough! 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 & they recommended I not do that often because of her age.

    So I got this and hoped for the best. I am beyond impressed & 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. She had adjusted herself to walking differently bc of the long nails. This product is the best!!" —georgiadiva2k

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    9. A Bissell SpotBot because the wizardry of this magical machine is known far and wide to spray, brush, and suction pet stains sans scrubbing.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is the best rug cleaner I have ever owned. I have a new puppy who pees everywhere. Especially after she already went outside. And of course her favorite place to pee is in the hallway. I bought this rug cleaner and a black light and was surprised to find so many spots. You do need to run deep clean for pee spots but the cycle is six minutes and the tank lasts for three deep cleans. Well worth the money." —Bookgamer

    Get it from Amazon for $149.

    10. An enzymatic toothpaste to keep your doggo's pearly whites clean and plaque-free. And, if you're extremely opposed to the meat-flavored varieties, this guy comes in the much better smelling Vanilla Mint.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I write this for Pabu, a Shih Tzu. The vanilla mint flavor disappeared for a long time and Pabu would refuse all other flavors. This arrived yesterday and he went right for the first link. Happy breath and dental care again. Woo-hoo!" —Mikah

    Get it from Amazon for $9.44.

    11. A stain-and-odor removing spray for quickly exorcising the ungodly mess your floof kindly left on the carpet for you.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing. I have three large dogs...each dog is over 100 lbs. When they get sick, its bad. I have used this on urine, vomit, and diarrhea. I have used it on carpet, hardwood floors, bedding, and clothing. It has removed stains and odor. I use it for large stains in combination with my carpet shampooer. It has even gotten out stains that have sat for hours and dried when I was at work (gross I know)." —SarahMonroe

    Get it from Amazon for $5.06.

    12. An all-natural ear treatment so puppaccinos no longer have to suffer from ear infections, redness, and inflammation — no pre-cleaning required.

    Promising review: "I was hoping this eat drop was everything everyone said it was. Thankfully this drop has been life-changing for us. My 1-year-old has had ear infection after ear infection for at least seven months. Just like everyone else we tried multiple different treatments, doctors visits, etc. and no relief. It may appear to go away, but comes back quick and bad. She always scratched it til it was bleeding. I was so excited to get these drops in the mail. As soon as they arrived I started treating her. She has made huge improvements! Before now, she wouldn't even let me look at her ear. Her ear was swollen and bloody, now it looks just like the other one! She is so much happier now! Will definitely continue using this product to keep my baby girl happy and healthy!" —KrisBarn

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99.

    13. A gentle, nonirritating eye rinse that'll safely remove allergens, dirt, and other irritants while reducing the look of tear stains on your pup's fur.

    Promising review: "When we adopted our Maltese a couple of months ago, he had watery and crusty eyes. It was so bad that he couldn’t open his eyes completely. I had tried different products until I came across this one. At first, I didn’t see much progress, but I kept on applying the Nutri-Vet Eye Rinse every day. Slowly, but surely, his eyes were improving. Four months into the treatment I compared before and after photos and realized he had improved dramatically. I strongly recommend this eye rinse; I still use it just to keep his eyes free of debris." —Jaime Castano

    Get it from Amazon for $3.79.

    14. A handheld Bissell vacuum whose exact purpose in this world is to attract doggo floof off of stairs and upholstery. It's all about that rubber nozzle, baby.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Holy crap!! Are you skeptical when it comes to buying stuff online? ME TOO! That's why I figured all of these rave reviews were a crock of crap. I've seriously bought every kind of vacuum out there, including the Rumba, 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! BTW, I've NEVER taken the time to review a product before, just FYI." —Luka Chan

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99.

    15. A doggie blow-dryer with a flexible hose and two heating settings to keep your pup floofltastic while sparing you the scent of wet dog.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "As mother to two nasty pugs, I can safely say this dryer has changed our lives for the better. They don't appreciate it as much as I do, but my olfactory system has priority over their funk preferences. I love the heating feature, and it does get pretty warm. It also has a knob to tune the blasting power, from 'dainty breeze' to 'holy sh*t it blew the Chihuahua over.'

    I've used it three times a week since purchasing it in late 2017, and it is still going strong. My favorite grooming device." —Anna

    Get it from Amazon for $79.

    16. An all-natural vegan balm so your furry friend's sniffer stays moisturized and free of chaps or cracks.

    Promising review: "First time buying this product for my doggie’s dry nose and we are very please with the results. Within a week her nose looked 100% better!" —Michael J.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95 (available in two sizes).

    17. An extra sticky lint roller that'll be so attractive to your pet's fur, it'll break up with your favorite black pants.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am a professional who has to look good to meet with clients. This can be a challenge when you have a dog or cat (in my case both) hard to keep the hair off a dark jacket or slacks.

    These lint rollers are way better than the cheap stuff you get at Walmart or other stores. One pass and these things take off hair, lint, and little fuzzys you didn't even know were there. 4 extra rolls will last me quite a while. I will buy it again." —Christopher Diehl

    Get it from Amazon for $17.95.

    18. A grooming brush to snatch up to 95% of mats, tangles, and dead hair out of your doggo's coat before they even realize they're being brushed.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Great product! I have a 5-month-old lab who would scream when I brushed her. With this brush she relaxes and I get five times as much hair off. I didn't know she had that much loose hair! Buying another for my brother!" —Katie Boone

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97.

    19. A wrinkle cream so puppers with adorable, squishy faces can have a water-repellent barrier to keep out moisture, fungus, and bacteria.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This cream is the miracle worker. My 2-year-old English Bulldog had a yeast in his wrinkles. I cleaned everyday with hydrogen peroxide but it didn't clear it up. One night I came across this product. It didn't have many reviews and I really didn't see anybody else in the bulldog community use it. I was desperate and decided to give it a try. Within 24 hours of using Squishface I noticed a huge difference. Within 48 hours, it was almost gone. By 72 hours it had cleared up. I clean his face before bed and apply the cream. I only use it once a day and that was enough for us. I cant say my bully loves it because seriously what bully likes having their wrinkles cleaned? He tolerates it and I love that it worked for us. It has no smell to it, its natural, and it WORKS!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $20.39.

    20. An oral hygiene chew that works to rub off tartar and plaque build up while your doggo is munching away.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My cocker spaniel has terrible teeth. Several different vets have been insisting on dental cleaning under anesthesia for years now, but I'm terrified to have to put her through that. I've been using Greenies for years with no difference at all. This product was the last resort before scheduling that dental cleaning procedure. I took a before picture to ensure I'm not just imagining improvement to avoid having to put her under anesthesia. After two weeks of switching between Vibrac CET VeggieDent and Vibrac CET Enzymatic (she gets bored of the same treats quickly) I checked Lola's teeth and almost cried! This product is an absolute miracle. Before and after picture included (taken two weeks apart)." —Mystique

    Get it from Amazon for $17.48.

    21. A medicated dog shampoo formulated with oatmeal to heal irritated skin, while relieving parasitic, bacterial, or fungal infections.

    Promising review: "I've been fighting severe dandruff with my 13-year-old Chihuahua for a few years with veterinarian-directed treatments. In desperation at the flaky mess that recently increased again, I tried this shampoo and even my veterinarian was impressed with how much my dog's coat cleared up after just the first use! After the third shampooing, the dandruff was almost completely gone, even a week later. The best part, though? My dog suddenly wants to be held and petted non-stop! I guess her skin irritation was causing enough discomfort previously that she didn't want her skin touched. Now she seems to feel better and her coat looks great!" —Jodi

    Get it from Amazon for $8.97.

    22. A16-piece grooming kit so you can be the Jonathan Van Ness of the canine world.

    amazon.com

    The full set has everything you need to give your pup a nice haircut. It comes with one scissor, seven combs, two comb organizers, four finger inserts, one grooming guide, and one storage bag.

    Promising review: "My Maltese really dislikes going to the groomer. Being able to do it at home saves me money and keeps her happy. Using these scissors, she often goes to sleep while I’m working on a side of her body. It lets you cut the hair at a uniform length and no more accidental cuts because the guards prevent it. It’s a win-win! The only thing I’d change was the ability to sharpen the blades because they are starting to dull after about a year of use. I’d highly recommend these to those of you who cut your fur babies fur at home." —Shimmer580

    Get it from Amazon for $39.95.

    23. A Snuggle Puppy because your crate-training puppy can really use someone to spoon at night. Not only can this guy help with whining, barking, and stress, he's basically indestructible and will stick around until your pupper is a doggo.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Prior to picking up our boy I read all these reviews (mostly just to look at the cute puppy photos). We rubbed the Snuggle Puppy on the litter’s mama and he cuddled with it in the car on the two-hour ride home. Every night since then he has slept with it in his crate. At night when he’s getting ready for sleep, he takes it out and plays pretty aggressively with it but the Snuggle Puppy has held up really well! I’ll cry if anything ever happens to the Snuggle Puppy and I think my dog will too!" —Cristiana

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

    24. A pack of immune system supplements made with prebiotics, probiotics, and salmon oil to help your dog with seasonal allergies and skin irritation.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is INCREDIBLE. A pure miracle. My pit has been suffering with allergies her entire life. She can’t even lay on the grass for five minutes without a rash starting. My boyfriend and I really did not want to put her on prescriptions any longer because we really didn’t want to ruin her liver. I read about supplements for dogs and came across this one because of the 5-star reviews... I thought I might be disappointed because nothing else has ever worked. But I was wrong. The pictures I’ve posted are only three days apart. That’s right... this is 100% true... in only three days, rashes, bumps, pus, and bloody open skin is completely GONE. YOU HAVE TO TRY THIS FOR YOUR PET IF THEY'RE SUFFERING! Please do it." —Ashley Berbenick

    Get it from Amazon for $25.96.

    25. A pair of gentle grooming gloves for shedding doggos who have solemnly sworn to make brushing time as difficult as possible.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is an amazing product for shedding and nonshedding dogs! We got two goldendoodles, litter mates, and it's very funny that one got the shedding fur of the golden retriever, and the other got the hypoallergenic non-shedding fur of the doodle. These gloves did a wonderful job at helping us groom both the dogs! And to remove the hair from the glove, all I did was run my hand backwards (from fingers to wrist) a few times which really did a great job! I'm totally recommending this to my friends!" —Margaret Smith

    Get it from Amazon for $11.04.

    26. A low-noise electric pet shaver because some doggos have made the groomer public enemy number one, and now haircuts are your job. Easily rechargeable and equipped with a safe, stainless-steel blade, these clippers can help you resent that job less.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I LOVE this clipper. First of all, I have never owned a dog that needed haircuts. But we wanted goldendoodles who don't shed, so they need to be trimmed. These clippers are SUPER quiet. The dogs never flinched when I turned it on. The attachments are easy to get on and off. I also liked the ability to adjust the clippers on the body of the unit to make very close cuts (without nicking the skin) for the underbelly and rear end area.

    It comes with a little brush to help clean the blade. It also came with a very nice, sharp scissors to trim around the face or touch up the places I missed with the clippers. It also came with a comb that works great to help pull mats out of the coat." —th

    Get it from Amazon for $22.94.

    27. An antifungal and antibacterial spray to get rid of skin infections caused by fungus, bacteria, or yeast, while relieving itching and hot spots with the combined power of aloe and vitamin E.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "We have been struggling to fix my Rhodesian Ridgeback's yeast/hot spot problem areas for months. Tried switching foods which worked for a little while and then the yeast spots came back with a vengeance. Ordered a few different products (probiotics) which did nothing for our pup. Within two days of using this spray her yeast spots/hot spots and fritos smell are gone! I can't believe how fast this spray worked. She went from constant licking/scratching/biting at her underbelly and paws to completely cured. So happy we found this product!" —SpaFan

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95.

    28. A salmon oil food supplement so your doggo can get their Omega 3s in while building a healthy heart, skin, coat, and stronger immune system.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Our 16-lb miniature pinscher was loosing hair in small patches. Gave him one pump per day with his dinner. Hair grew back in only two weeks. We'll continue this." —Lucky!

    Get it from Amazon for $10.95.

    29. A pack of stain removing pads you can stomp into your carpet and leave overnight for those seriously set in "presents" your lovely canine left you.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have a 13-year-old small dog at home who occasionally would do accidents on the carpet. The Bissell Stomp 'N Go Pet Stain Lifting Pads sounds quite appealing for cleaning the tough stains so I decided to give it a try. I applied the pad on a tough set-in stain area, followed the instructions, and took snap-shot pictures after two hours and overnight. The pad seems to do a nice job as advertised as the tough stain spot cleared out quite well without any additional chemicals applied." —Gadgetman
