    Plus, it's dishwasher safe!

    Promising Review: "Love how simple this is, from cleaning to refilling! Dog loves the fresh water all day and I love that it comes apart and is so easy to clean (the opening to the container is large enough so I can get my hand in with a wash cloth).  —Cris

    Price: $14.95+ (available in three sizes)

    2. A collapsible bin with rope handles to hold your dog's toys and accessories in one centralized location. The days of tripping over tennis balls or finding bones in couch cushions will finally be over.

    Promising Review: "It's a nice canvas storage bin, very stylish for your home decoration. It helps store and organize my buddy's toy cohort. Before I bought it, my golden retriever's toys, pads, and other stuff alike are all over the place in the house. Now they are all well organized in this cute storage bin." —Dodo 

    Price: $9.99+ (available in two sizes and four colors)

    Promising Review: "My beagle is terrified of fireworks and I ordered him this shirt for the 4th of July. It was awesome...he started to pace, so I placed it on him and just held him, reassuring him for a bit. Then he left my lap and went over and laid on his bed. He was relaxed enough that he just laid quietly, maybe even a light sleep. We have also had a lot of thunderstorms lately and last night they were really bad. My dog was flipping out with all the thunder and lightning. I put his thundershirt on and he calmed right down. He was very relaxed, and rested during the storm." — DogMom

    Price: $34.11+ (available in sizes XXS–XXL)

    4. A bone with peanut butter filling to get your dog very excited and keep them very, very busy. Your best friend can satisfy their urge to chew and snack while you take a well-deserved break from dog duty.

    Promising Review: "Finally a bone that will keep my dogs occupied all day. They loved them and the bones stayed intact with no splintering. Will buy more for sure." —Bree

    Price: $4.21+ (available in one and 20 packs)

    5. A set of carpeted stairs so your furry friend can join you for your nightly binge-watch. You won't have to worry about them getting hurt jumping up or down, and they'll love their newfound freedom!

    Promising Review: "Bought this for our two Boxers who need help getting into our bed. This helps them to get up and settle in, instead of me having to get up and lift them. Sets up easily and treads make it easier to avoid slipping off. "—Hobo

    Price: $64.99+ (available in two sizes and two colors)

    6. A Hoover steam mop with 10 settings to help you clean and deodorize *all* of your dog's favorite places without those harsh chemicals — just water. It even includes a handheld tool, for sprucing up the hard-to-reach places (that your pup has definitely reached).

    It's also lightweight and easy to maneuver to reach every nook and cranny!

    Promising Review: "I am so very, very, very pleased with this. It truly cleans, deodorizes, and sanitizes my little dog's messes.  Also, you do not use any chemicals, just water. Therefore, you, your pet, and your family are safe from any chemicals." —Happy

    Price: $99

    7. An expandable pet gate with cat door, because although you love your dog, not every area of your home is a *dog* area. This one pressure mounts in the doorway for a strong hold with zero damage to your walls, and can easily be stepped over (by humans, not doggos).

    I love this gate for its versatility — I can easily move it from room to room and resize it to fit any doorframe. The gate is 18 inches high, so it's ideal for smaller dogs.

    Promising Review: "This was the perfect solution for keeping the dogs out of the cat's "rooms" and away from the cat food and cat litter box. Affordable, easy to install, and works like a charm. What's nice is you can still close bedroom doors without disturbing the gate at all. Low enough for all adults to easily step over, but high enough to keep out our small dogs." — Poppy

    Price: $29.99

    8. A bag of Greenies dental chews to promote dental hygiene and fight stinky dog breath every day Your buddy will feel like they're just getting a treat, but they'll actually be getting a healthy snack that fights plaque and tartar, avoiding a *truly* traumatic trip to the canine dentist later. Sneaky, sneaky.

    Promising Review: "My dog got a bad case of tartar and plaque when I was not able to keep her teeth clean. What works best and what brought her back to where she was was a daily Greenies Dental Dog Treat. We'll never be without them." —GraciesPoppa

    Price: $8.48+ (available in eight package sizes)

    9. A bougie sofa bed because your dog deserves this kind of luxury. Also, you deserve to get your spot on the human couch back.

    Promising Review: "My dog recently had surgery on his leg. During the healing process, he was not allowed to climb or jump and could not lay on my couch. My dog loves this. It is sturdy and well-made." —Dawrene

    Price: $59.34+ (available in sizes S-L and two colors)

    10. A simple yet effective Easy Walk harness that is a total game-changer if you've got a dog who likes to pull. This no-pull harness connects to your dog's front rather than back, and will make daily strolls with your pet so much more enjoyable for *everyone* involved.

    This harness works extremely well on my dog. I have used it since the day I got her and I will never walk her without it!

    Promising Review: "I had basically given up trying to leash train my 45-pound pit bull. This harness is the first thing I’ve tried that WORKS. And she loves it. Super easy to put on and adjust. Instructions were very clear. No more pulling and now long walks with my pup are something we can BOTH look forward to." —Laura

    Price: $16.95+ (available in eight sizes and seven colors)

    11. A Petcube pet camera so you can keep a watchful eye and ear on your best friend, even if you can't be with them. It has two-way audio for those of us who have full-on conversations with our dog (guilty as charged). If you see anything concerning on your camera while you're away, you can instantly contact a vet through the Petcube app.

    The pet camera in use

    Promising Review: "I have already recommended this to many of my pet owner friends. The camera gives us such peace if mind. My dog is elderly and not well. The camera is extremely clear, day and night and it allows us to see the whole room despite the small camera size." —Rosie

    Price: $39.99+ (available in sets of one, two or three cameras)

    12. An indoor bathroom for when the weather outside is frightful, but nature still calls. Your dog will avoid accidents of desperation, and you can avoid pet parent guilt.

    I personally vouch for this product — this has kept my dog ~regular~ when it's too cold to go outside, and has been a game-changer for me, especially when used with the disposal kit.

    Promising Review: "My Chihuahua uses this every night, on stormy/rainy days and whenever we don't want to make the trip downstairs. We live in an apartment in the city and this makes life so much easier. It's easy to clean and maintain. I highly recommend!" —AvaK

    Price: $69.95

    13. A water-resistant sofa protector so that you and your best bud can share the couch without it turning into a wet and dirty pet bed. Lay this bad boy down and let your four-legged friend sleep peacefully, because this is one piece of furniture that they will *not* take over completely.

    Promising Review: "Love, love, love. This cover is perfect for us. My baby girl uses the furniture like I do and sometimes she comes in a little wet and jumps on the loveseat before I can wipe her feet. This cover saves my loveseat from any wet or dirt. I would highly recommend this product." —CraftyB

    Price: $18.99+ (available in three sizes and three colors)

    14. A jar of paw protectant that's made from natural waxes to protect your adventure buddy's paws from the elements. It's also 100% more likely to stay on their feet than dog booties.

    Promising Review: "I am so amazed with this brush! I have tried several brushes and the bristles always end up breaking and they never get deep down to the undercoat. However, this brush is sturdy and no broken pieces after several uses! I love that there is a fur release button to get the stubborn hairs out of the brush. My dog gets so excited when it's time to get brushed and he was like a brand-new dog after using this for the first time!" —Nicole

    Price: $29.95+ (available in three sizes and three colors)

    The black and gold hammered metal canister with paw print knob

    Promising Review: "This is a nice container to keep out for dog treats. It holds more than other ones (i.e. a full bag+) so it's very convenient. The lid stays on securely and is airtight. With the paw print on top, it's pretty clear who these are for!" —Speechie

    Price: $19.99

    17. A Dremel nail grinder kit so you can avoid the bloodbath that occurs when you cut just *a little* too short. Its speed-sanding drum slowly files down the nail, so you can avoid over-trimming — and its wireless design means you can groom your pup while they lay on the couch!

    Promising Review: "I have labs with black nails and I have a hard time using traditional clippers on them without getting the quick and making them bleed. This thing has been great! They might even enjoy it." —PWmomma

    Price: $29.99

    18. A 16-cup automatic feeder because every dog loves a routine feeding schedule! Ensure that your furry friend doesn't overeat or go hungry, even when you're not around — this feeder dispenses four meals a day, and has a magnetic lock lid to keep your buddy from getting a second helping.

    Chewy Customer

    Use this feeder's LCD display to customize portions, choose feeding times, and even record a message that will be played for your pooch during mealtime. Technology, am I right?

    Promising Review: "My dog has decided to wake me up at 5:30 a.m. every morning for his breakfast. I set the time on this feeder and the amount of food, and he can get breakfast himself now. I can sleep." —Benjie

    The durable nylon bone also doesn't shed gross (and potentially dangerous) shards and small pieces as it is chewed. A+++.

    Promising Review: "My dog is having fun with this one. Benebone makes durable toys, and this one is thick and heavy enough to last, even with my aggressive chewer. Its curved design makes it easy to spot in the yard, and easy for my dog to pick up. She hasn't been able to bury this one like she does her flat bone toys." —BamaSue

    Price: $10.45+ (available in sizes S–L)

    Promising Review: "My dog loves her new bed and so do I. She sleeps in it all day long. It keeps her cooler than any of the other beds she has had. She sleeps on it with her blankets, no problem. No more laying on the hard floor to keep herself cool. With this bed she stays cool and comfortable." —4dogs

    Price: $19.99+ (available in sizes S–L and five colors)

    21. A silicone lick mat to ease anxiety and distract your dog so you can *finally* give them a much-needed bath. It is also dishwasher safe, so you don't have to wash a dish right after you wash your pup.

    Simply spread the dog snack of your choosing onto the nubby mat (peanut butter works great!), use the suction cups to stick it to your wall, and let your dog lick to their heart's content while you do your thing.

    Promising Review: "We have a Golden Retriever who I need to brush daily because of the shedding. However, he doesn't like to be brushed and gets antsy. I bought this lick mat and it's awesome. I stick it to our sliding glass door outside and smear peanut butter into it. He licks forever while I'm brushing him. No more issues with trying to get him to stay while I finish brushing. It sticks perfectly onto the glass and is dishwasher-safe! An absolute game-changer!" —DeeP

    Price: $10.95+ (available in triangular or square shape)

    22. A pack of hygienic waste bags that are thick and puncture-resistant, to keep your hands clean and prevent unwanted contact with your dog's, ahem, "organic materials."

    The pack of 100 bags

    Promising Review: "These are the bags we use and love. However, for my last order, I found some cheaper ones, so I thought I would try them. Big mistake that resulted in getting a mess on my hands a couple times (YUCK!). The two-ply construction and being able to place your entire hand inside the Mitts and protect your hand from yucky messes, is invaluable. Worth every penny!" —Momof2

    Price: $23.99+ (available in 100- or 200-count bags)

    23. A pack of Nature's Miracle deodorizing pet wipes for your perpetually dirty and/or smelly dog. Use these alcohol-free wipes between baths to quickly cleanse and freshen your pup's skin and coat.

    Promising Review: "I have been using this and other Nature's Miracle wipes for a long time. I prefer this one because it isn't overwelming in smell but does make the dogs smell fresh. I have a dog boarding business so I am always cleaning up the dogs so they do not make my house smell, and these do a great job." —Vicki

    Price: $5.95+ (available in two sizes and two varieties)

    24. A booster car seat so your companion can get comfy during road trips. Your pooch will feel secure and ready to join you for every drive!

    The seat has a safety tether to keep your buddy secure, an elevated bottom so they can more easily see out the window, and the cover can be removed and thrown in the wash!

    Promising Review: "My dog loves riding in the car with his head out the window. However, there were times where he seemed uneasy and would shake. I also felt bad if I hit the brakes and he tumbled forward. This chair keeps him more secure. He seems to like the ability to see his surroundings without having to stand up. The shaking has stopped as well.  —Lauren

    Price: $76.99+ (available in two sizes)

    25. A fun treat puzzle that is like weight-lifting for your dog's brain. This engaging toy teaches them problem-solving using their favorite kibble or treats.

    Promising Review: "This is a fun puzzle for dogs as it makes them think about how to access the treats under the little bone shapes. My dog loves this puzzle, even though she mastered it quickly. It's still fun for her to search and be rewarded with a prize!" —Maureen7

    Price: $7.50

    26. A bottle of Nature's Miracle stain and odor remover because everyday accidents are no biggie. This formula also kills canine viruses to keep your best friend happy n' healthy.

    Promising Review: "This product is so good at eliminating stains and says it takes 15 minutes to work, but the effects are almost instantaneous. We use this for our potty-prone geriatric dog...just like her, this one is a keeper." -JeanneB

    Price: $6.59+ (available in two sizes)

    27. A Chuckit tug toy to take playtime to the next level. The rubber balls are gentle on pooch mouths, but tough enough for even the most *serious* of competitors.

    Promising Review: "Great toy for dual dog interaction. They love to play keep away and tug of war. Most balls do not hold up to this play more than an hour or two. This has been a great addition to the play collection!" —JoJo

    Price: $6.30+ (available in two sizes)

    28. A pet hair remover because your dog sheds so much hair onto your furniture, it's a wonder they're not bald. Go with this reusable, easy-to-clean roller and rejoice in finally being able to sit on your couch, even if you're wearing black pants.

    Promising Review: "We have a dog that sheds pretty badly, especially on our couch. It was shocking how well this picks up his hair on the couch, rug, blankets, even our clothes. We have an expensive vacuum for people with pets, but it can't pull up hair like the ChomChom can." —Austyn

    Price: $24.95
