    1. A no-pull harness that'll safely guide your dog to walk behind you and prevent them from stubbornly tugging at the leash.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: ""THIS HARNESS IS INCREDIBLE! I have a 7-month 65-lb pit/lab puppy who is bigger and stronger than any of my other young pits. She was dragging my wife around terribly until I got this for her. We tried the gentle leader leash, but she HATES it. This was a total breeze. She took to this like a duck in water. It does take some practice in adjusting the straps. However, if you can be patient, the pay off is HUGE!! I also found it to run a tad on the bigger size so when you order, just imagine everything about an inch bigger all around than you expect. That way if you're right on the edge of sizes you can make a better decision." —dwightschrute

    2. A durable bin and rake pooper scooper for quickly shuffling away pupper presents before the smell hits you. Equipped with scented Arm & Hammer bags, picking up poop just got a lot more painless.

    Promising review: "With three dogs, two small and one large, scooping the yard is a never ending job. But with the Arm & Hammer swivel bin and rake, there is no more bending to pick up the doggy droppings. I am able to easily use the rake to push the droppings into the bag covered bin. When I am done cleaning up the yard, I just simply remove the plastic bag from the scoop, tie it off, and dispose. I do spray the rake off with the hose sprayer and then clip the rake onto the scooper for easy storage. I really like this handy scooper. It makes a very icky job much easier to handle." —Kelly Eldred

    3. A pre-portioned automatic pet food dispenser to program while you're away for the day. This feeder can serve up to four cups of kibble per meal and features a slow-feed option for pets who eat too quickly.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Our cat is fat. In fact, I would go so far to say that she *is* a fat, like she really embodies the thing itself. 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. She's done everything her little mind can think of to this poor 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 on her head like Augustus Gloop in the chocolate factory. She hates her food now so she languidly watches it pour into the bowl. I do know that you have to re-program the timer because it does lose a little time, which is a pain, but it has successfully passed the trial of the fat for several months now. 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

    4. A grooming rake that basically eats tough knots and mats for breakfast. With rotating metal teeth, this guy removes loose hair and undercoat shedding before your pet even notices they're being brushed.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I wish I could give this thing 7 stars, but 5 will have to do. I was able to pull entire sheets of undercoat out of our husky without disturbing the topcoat. I've never had anything work so well. It's even easier to keep the fur pile together. The fur stays clumped, instead of getting spread out and floating around like with the blade-style FURminator. This thing really digs the loose stuff out so much faster and easier." —pvfjr

    5. A clip-on dog treat pouch because if you've ever been training a puppy and washed your pants with kibble still in the pockets, you'll know why this is obscenely necessary.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "If you’re looking for a portable, easy-to-wear treat bag to meet your daily walks and training sessions needs, this is the one you’re expecting. I say this because I’ve bought other treat bags and this one is the best. Although others have multi-functions, they’re too big to wear. Wearing them, I looked like a professional puppy trainer. This bag has a clip to put onto your belt or pocket. Its size is enough for some handfuls treats. Every time I pick up this treat bag, my pup smiles." —Simba & Maria

    6. A curved cat-scratching board because your cat is bound to scratch, and this way it won't be your furniture.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I had a hard time finding one of these corrugated cardboard scratchers that would fit my large cat so that he could actually lay on it as well. He had a smaller one from Target that he could only get half of his body on. He's two years old and 20 pounds. Settled on this one and it's perfect. Right out of the box he was on it...scratching and lounging. Just what I wanted and what he needed." —H.G.

    7. An airtight pet food storage container for those who want to keep their fur baby's food fresh and dry, without having everything in the immediate vicinity smelling like pet food.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "We keep our dog food in a coat closet off the kitchen. Even when food was sealed in an unopened bag, the whole closet (and our coats!) smelled like dog food. So I gave this a try and we have had it for a couple of months so I am ready to review it. It is easy to open/close with the spinning top, and I can tighten it enough that it is impossible for my small children to open, which is awesome! Plastic can absorb smells over time, so before putting any food in the container, I lined it with a plastic garbage bag to keep the container away from the food. And after a few months of use there is ZERO smell of dog food in my closet! I am so pleased with this purchase and highly recommend it to all pet owners!" —Tyler

    8. An ingenious dog treat to hide your pupper's medicine in the savory flavors of chicken without them being any wiser.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I spent so much money trying to find a glucosamine supplement my mastiff would eat. Chewables, liquid broth to pour over the food, hiding the tablets in cheese, lunch meat, or just shoving them down his throat. That stuff is very expensive and he needs several for his weight so not just one pill. I tried these as a last resort and just laughed thinking he would obviously not touch them. Nope! Literally the cheapest option and that dumb dog thinks he's getting a treat every time. Wth. I've been fighting this for a YEAR and I could have just fooled him with this crap? Unreal. Also, he's excited about the first one so I can fool him by sticking two pills in the first pocket since he swallows it whole." —Mindy Pfeiffer

    9. A cat food placemat for the overzealous feline who can't help but fling their Fancy Feast every which way.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "The mat is durable. I have the mat on carpet and it stays flat. Silicon keeps the mat in place and it does not slide around. My cat is a messy eater and the lip helps with spills of food and water. I have another food dish in the holder and the silicon has a little give in it and the dish does not move. I use the metal dish for soft food." —Veronica

    Get it on Amazon for $19.39

    10. A pair of grooming gloves so fur babies who absolutely detest being brushed no longer run when it's grooming time. They get to be pet, you get to remove all their dander and mats, and everyone goes home happy.

    The grooming gloves filled with fur taken off of a pet
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "We have four lovely furry feline friends who live with us. After replacing all our carpet with flooring we noticed major hair balls floating everywhere like tumbleweeds through the house. Obviously we needed to up our grooming skills. The first time we used it on our cats they weren't sure about that 'big hand' coming after them but it only took once before they started lining up and begging to be groomed. Within a couple of days the 'tumbleweeds' had all but disappeared, and even the lint tray in our dryer was cleaner after each load. In addition to the cleanliness positives for this product our cats are calmer and happier. I call it Xanax for cats. Even our somewhat neurotic tabby has became calmer than she's ever been. This is a great grooming tool and I highly recommend these gloves for any pet." —Pangu

    11. A pack of veterinarian-recommended dog treats to fight plaque and tartar build-up all the way to the gum line. Now if only there was an edible toothbrush for humans...

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I give Greenies to my two dogs every Saturday night after I wash the dishes. I don't know how they do it, but they seem to know when it's Saturday. They sit in the kitchen eagerly waiting for me to finish the dishes. When I'm done, I say to them, 'what's next?' They coax me upstairs to get their beloved Greenies. I guess they like them!" —Audrey Troyka

    12. A seatbelt tether that'll clip on to your doggo's harness and click into the seatbelt slot. If your pup is the type to stick their head out the window, this is a must-have.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Was in a car accident yesterday on I-4 outside of Tampa. All cars were stopped and this guy was speeding and did not stop. He hit us and we flew into the median. Luckily, everyone was wearing a seatbelt, including our dog. We have this seatbelt for my 30-lb puppy. I can honestly say this saved her from getting hurt. Can't imagine what would have happened if she wasn't wearing it. I can honestly say this product works since I just went through a car wreck with my dog strapped in. My dog is completely fine today. Highly recommend this product. Have two of these for both cars. Remember to always buckle up your pet!" —Melissa

    13. A stick chew toy for the puppaccino who's always picking up branches along their walk, and worrying their dog parents to death about splinters.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My bulldog loves these wooden chew toys. A few months ago she started acting up and eating the wood siding shingles off the house and part of our Jacuzzi deck. We would fix it and it would happen again. She had a lot of toys so we knew she was not just bored. I asked our dog trainer what to do and he suggested we give her sticks as toys since she seems to like chewing wood. We tried that, but the sticks would get broken or thrown away by the gardeners. So, when I came upon this real wood toy I had to try it. It is amazing! She loves it and she has not chewed any wood off the house since we got the first one about a month ago. I just came back to buy a second one so she can have her favorite toy inside the house too. She is so happy with it!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it on Amazon for $5.69+ (available in sizes extra small to large)

    14. A cat litter deodorizer because you kind of have to have a litter box, but that doesn't mean you need to smell it.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have three lil' kitties (one not-so-lil' Maine Coon) and they all use the SAME liter box that I clean, or used to, four times a day. Due to this WONDERFUL product I now only do TWICE but because of lack of 'Cat Box Smell' you would think I have NO cats! I have tried almost every product out there plus other store household products and NOTHING I have ever used works as great as this does! I read someone post that the smell scares their cat from using box etc.. or smells like bleach etc.. I Have NEVER experienced this! This product has no smell!! My cats love it because they think (by their use) the box is clean (with three cats one is always trying to out scent the other) This is the BEST product out there! For the money, it is awesome, especially compared to other items in same category. Get it; you and your cat(s) will be very happy." —C. Compton

    15. A stuffing-free squeak toy for the pupper hell-bent on murdering every toy in their path. At least you know you won't have to pick fluff out of their mouths if they succeed.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My dachshund destroys every toy she gets. These dog toys by Petstages are her absolute favorites and last the longest. They have two different squeakers that make their unique sound. Whenever she does finally rip them apart, stuffing doesn't go everywhere. This is probably her ninth toy like this over the years. Highly recommend!" —mattbakerrr

    16. A vault pet food traveler with a detachable water and food bowl to store up to six cups of your pet's kibble when you're on the go, and provide an easy way to feed them when they're away from home.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is brilliant. It makes traveling with a pet so much easier. Two weeks after receiving our Bichon pup, we needed to travel from Memphis to Atlanta, GA for three days. I was all over Amazon researching and looking for the best option for feeding. I saw this and was so excited. When we hit the road and stopped, we could give him a few kibble for pottying. We could use one of the containers to give him fresh water. The container in the picture is somewhat misleading. Although it is a travel size, you can fit a week or more of pet food in it. No more fumbling with pet food dishes." —MemphisDiva

    17. A lightweight ball launcher so pups who are solely entertained by fetch can have fun for hours and your arm won't feel a thing.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "If you have a dog, and you don’t have one of these you’re doing it wrong. I’ve had one for all of my dogs, and it is a staple. The ball it comes with is standard, but you can swap for the rubber ones. Mine just chews and pops all of the regular balls, so it is what I do. However, the thrower itself it much more durable, and it makes fetch easier for me since I have a bad shoulder." —Lydia Ehr

    18. A hands-free Bissell SpotBot that'll quickly remove fresh or set in stains with its spray, brush, and suction cycle. The days of getting up close and personal to scrub away an icky pet stain are over.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "We recently had a pet stain on new light-colored carpet that did not come fully clean with an older model carpet cleaner we had, so we ordered this model. Even though the stain had a few days to set before using the new SpotBot it worked well. We followed the directions and in a few minutes the spot was gone. Very happy with the result. And no scrubbing!" —Robert

    19. A portable muddy paw cleaner, because it's a universally acknowledged truth that dogs like to get their paws dirty and then run all over the house. Simply plunge each paw into the cup, allow the soft bristles to clean away the dirt, then dump the water when you're done.

    amazon.com

    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.

    20. A nail grinding and grooming tool for the pet whose biggest enemy is the nail clippers. With two rotation speeds, this tool can quickly grind down your pet's talons with little to no stress for you or your fur baby.

    Promising review: "Wow, this is a GREAT tool for doing dog nails! We recently adopted an 80-lb 3-year-old Labradoodle who hates going to the groomer (plus it's super expensive) and hates having his feet touched. I bathe him at home once a week and wanted to start trimming his nails on my own too but frankly it sacred me to death because he's got really long quicks. I decided to buy this and try it out. Once my dog got used to it (it took a few tries and lots of treats for him to get comfortable letting me use it on him for all his feet) it is SO EASY to use and works amazingly well and FAST! I use it on the high setting and it really isn't very loud at all. It only takes 5-10 seconds per nail on that setting, at least in my experience." —Kate Mahoney

    21. A hide-and-seek squirrel plush toy so your doggo will never know boredom (or mischief) ever again. Pro tip: Hide some kibble in the toy along with the squeaky squirrels if you really want to keep your dog entertained for a while.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Our puppy lives to destroy. The name 'Piranha' would be more suitable for our 3-month-old 'Molly.' This is a dog who eats the outside of our house. She eats rocks, the underbelly of chairs, wooden porches...nothing is safe. She is the Godzilla of small towns made of dog toys. Every toy we have gotten her lays shredded in indistinguishable ruins with the exception of this one little squirrel house. We made bets on how long it would last, 15 seconds being the favorite choice. She doesn't waste time searching out the squirrels in the house. No, she just shakes the house with her head vigorously and the squirrels go flying. This is her favorite toy. She carries the squirrels around like they're her babies. Her favorite pull toy is the squirrel house and it has held up better than any toy actually made to be a pulI toy. I really, really don't get it. But this is the Samsonite of all dog toys. I'd write more but I just saw her go through the doggy door with my recipe book." —In the Boonies

    22. A stain-and-odor-remover spray that uses an enzymatic formula to break down accidents and get rid of funky smells faster than your pet can squat.

    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

    23. A reversible waterproof and windproof dog coat to keep any sized pupper warm and dry during colder months when the weather is relentless and unpredictable.

    Promising review: "This came in sooner than expected and fits my dog perfectly! the material feels like it is made of good quality. I bought the XXL and my dog is just under 60 lbs. He is a bit chesty so that's why I went with XXL instead of XL." —Pat

    24. A pet hair remover brush for eliminating evidence of your shedding pet from every soft surface in your home. With a few quick back-and-forth strokes, this bad boy will gather up all the stray fur and store it in a dust receptacle for easy disposal.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "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.'" —Meowser

    25. A leak-proof dog water bottle to keep your pupper's thirst quenched on long walks or hot days. All you gotta do is press the button and let the water drain into the trough so your dog can have a drink. If there's water left over, press the button again and it'll drain back into the bottle.

    Promising review: "It's very easy to use - just press the button and tilt forward, and water comes out almost like a small waterfall. If your dog doesn't finish what's in the bowl, simply press the button and tilt back, and the water will flow back into the bottle. There are a few drops that won't go in but that isn't a problem at all. The 'stop' button wasn't 100% effective, but the water doesn't leak regardless. The bottle is made of thick, study plastic that seems to combat some of the heat from outside. It was absolutely perfect for my 6-lb Chihuahua. I HIGHLY recommend this bottle!" —Breanna Rodriguez

    Available on Amazon for $18.99

    26. A package of Burt's Bees dander-reducing wipes so your cat's coat can stay moisturized and free of redness and flakes.

    Promising review: "Our son was having a lot of dander on this back near the base of his tail. We kept up the brushing but it wasn't going away. Looking at the reviews I decided to go for the dander wipes. Well I have used it twice and was blown away. His dander is pretty much all gone now. Plus his hair seems shinier and silkier after his brushing and using the wipes. Not to mention our baby boy looks just like the cat on the packaging :D All around I will continue to buy these and use once a week or twice every two weeks to keep up his beautiful orange coat. Thanks Burt's Bees!" —Tom Cincotta

    Promising review: "I have a 22-lb dog and I was just looking for a small towel I could keep near the door for rainy/snowy days so nothing gets tracked on the apartment floor. I love this towel!

She does it so often that I bought her a second one." —Butterfly0054

    29. A top entry cat litter box that'll keep funky smells more contained, while minimizing litter scatter and cleaning your cat's paws of litter when they get out.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I got my first ever cat less than a month ago and quickly realized that having an open box of waste hanging around my house wasn't for me. After looking at dozens of other options, I settled on the IRIS box. I love it! It doesn't look or feel like a litter box, just more like a high-end trash can or office tote. Even though it's not closed off completely, it still does a much better job of holding in odors than an open box. I had no issue with my cat figuring out how to use it or not liking it. All I did was set it up and place it next to his existing box. Within two days he had completely transition to it on his own, clearly he prefers to do his business in a private, contained area, and he's no longer wiping his paws on the walls when he's done." —Amazonperson

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
