    Our Readers Say These 17 Products For Dogs Are The Best They've Ever Bought

    Including an indestructible chew toy, a no-pull harness, and a donut bed you'll probably wish came in human sizes.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us what the best dog product they ever bought was — here's what they said!

    1. A donut dog bed that'll quickly become your pup's new favorite spot. The soft faux fur covering is designed to be reminiscent of a mama dog's soft coat, and the raised rim may help comfort anxious pupperinos while supporting their head and neck.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    "My husband saw it on Reddit and we knew our dog had to have it. She's a total lap dog and it was a lifesaver when I was working from home. I usually hold her in a pouch (which honestly might be the second best thing I bought for my dog, but probably isn't something anyone else needs) but that was screwing up my posture. Put her bed on the ground next to me and she loved it. It retains their body heat and is made of (vegan) fur to remind them of their mom's fur and cuddles. My dog loves it! She doesn't need a blanket when she lays in it since it keeps her warm!" —halanii

    Get it from Amazon for $34.95 (available in four sizes and two colors).

    2. A reversible dog pouch so you can take your pup with you wherever you go. This is great for anxious pets who need to be by your side basically 24/7 as well as senior dogs who want to explore but get tired or sore very quickly.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    "My dog is blind but I love taking her places. She gets scared really easily. So we got this pouch I just put her in. It's like a big sling. She just sits in it and is so happy. It keeps her calm at the vet, she can lay in it while we play board games and I can take her out without worrying that she'll be scared or someone will come up to her." —halanii

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95 (available in five colors).

    3. A deceptively tough soft toy to last you and your dog years instead of mere minutes.

    "Fluff & Tuff sturgeon toy. Our dog Rye picked it out at the pet store when we first adopted him and even carried to to the register. It has lasted over a year, and pretty much looks brand-new. He likes to take it outside and leaves it there. We have thrown it in the washer and dryer many times and it's still very much intact. It is still a soft toy so it's not indestructible if you have a big dog or a major chewer, but our beagle likes to play tug of war with toys and most other toys we've bought for him rip pretty easily, but not Mr. Sturgeon. It is definitely his favorite toy and what's funny is that a lot of reviews on Amazon for this toy also state that their dog is attached to it!" —jenniferk14

    Get a similar toy from the same brand from Amazon for $16.95.

    4. A near indestructible Jolly Ball if a play session with your vigorous chewers usually ends with a shredded toy.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    "A Jolly Ball. It's a hollow ball with a handle. It's great for fetch and can be played with in water, too. We foster dogs and they have all LOVED playing with it, fetching it, and swinging it around. We have the 10-inch ball and have had to thread a piece of rope through the handle so they can still grip it." —mv98765

    Get it from Amazon for $8.80+ (available in three sizes and six colors).

    5. A Chuckit! Kick Fetch ball, a grooved ball for pups who have touble biting into other toys. This foam rubber ball has deep grooves you *and* Fido can easily grab, plus it floats in water so playtime can involve the pool.

    "Chuckit! Kick Fetch ball. My dog loves it. He doesn’t really fetch; his joy is in chasing things. The larger size makes it great for him to shake around after a successful chase, but he can’t get a good enough grip on it to tear it up. He loves to take it to the top of a hill, and let it roll down so he can chase it. 10/10 would recommend." —thelategreatnobody

    Get it from Amazon for $20.79.

    6. A Goughnuts chew ring because it was designed by engineers who made rubber for aircraft and spaceships so you know it's really, really durable.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    "Goughnuts chew toys for dogs! My pit/lab/wonder mix was going through (ethically harvested) elk antlers about twice a month. We bought one toy from Goughnuts and she's been chewing away happily for almost a year and a half now. Not even a dent in the surface where Kongs wouldn't stand up to her teeth." —isabellablanco161

    Get it from Amazon for $21.31+ (available in five colors and three toughness levels).

    7. A custom doggy knee brace that'll help your fur baby take back their freedom after an injury. Here's to many more years of chasing squirrels in the backyard!

    "My dude is 12 and a little chunky but he still plays like a puppy. He tore his ACL in a back leg and was too old to have surgery safely. He only wears the brace when he is outside and he likes it, I think because he is back chasing noisy cars in the yard from behind the fence from one end to the other! It took about two and a half weeks altogether with a brief turnaround. You have to make a cast of their injured leg, which is done with equipment they send you first and you return it to wait about week and a half. They even can customize the color. His is an American flag because he is now a citizen after being born in Costa Rica!" —higgybop

    Get a customized brace from Ortho Pets; prices may vary depending on your pet's needs.

    8. A paraben- and sulfate-free dog shampoo and moisturizing paw balm so you can spoil your doggo from head to toe.

    Fox + Hound

    "Fox + Hound shampoo and paw butter. My dogs are super soft and their feet are healthy." —ratonks

    Get the argan and amber shampoo for $18 (also available in lemongrass and chamomile, rosemary and peppermint, and sensitive skin) and the paw butter for $24.

    9. An organic paw balm to keep the pads on your dog's paws soft and protect against hot sidewalks. You can also use it on your dog's nose to keep it moisturized!

    "It's a perfect way to pamper your pup the all natural way."—ilovemydoggy

    Get it from TheRuggedPawCo on Etsy for $4.

    10. A foam lookout car seat if your dog demands daily car rides in style. The sherpa lining is luxuriously soft, and the machine-washable nylon cover is designed to repel hair.

    "My Bichon loves his car seat. It is high enough for him to see out the window, is anchored by the seat belt, and has a harness clip to keep him safe. Snoozer products are terrific." —judithf46009c74f

    Get it from Amazon for $69.95+ (available in two sizes and five colors).

    11. And if that one didn't tick all your boxes, reviewers also recommend this car seat for ensuring your doggo can safely enjoy barking at passing cars thanks to its safety belt tether.

    "His Solvit car seat. He can see out the window while safely buckled in plus it’s comfy for long car trips." —armani25

    Get it from Amazon for $64.95+ (available in three sizes).

    12. A no-pull harness because as much as you love walking your dog, you don't enjoy being dragged in every direction. The straps of this harness sit on your dog's chest and belly to prevent choking when your dog pulls, and D ring where you attach the leash is designed to steer your dog to your side.

    "PetSafe Easy Walk is perfect for getting a jumpy and tall puppy and dog to walk appropriately and with you. The harness puts the D ring that couples to the leash on the front in order to pull the dog's center of gravity aside, which is humane and pain free so your dog who is super enthusiastic starts paying attention to their human and walking with then their stuff. My 8-year-old daughter can walk our energetic 60-pound dog safely because of this product." —cynthiabonville

    Get it from Amazon for $22.95 (available in four sizes and four colors).

    13. A cooling dog vest that'll keep your pets cool this summer. It's made of mesh so air can easily circulate, and the water-retaining fabric that draws heat from your pupper's body.

    "This cooling vest from Canada Pooch has been the best!! It helps keep my Frenchie cool, which is super important for bulldogs!" —rachaelh48f40b441

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in a variety of sizes and colors) and Canada Pooch for $38 (available in sizes 8–32 and two colors).

    14. A nutrient blend you mix with your dog's food to ensure your fur child is getting everything they need.

    "My dog is 15 and he had a few digestive issues start up last year. I heard about Just Food For Dogs and bought their DIY blend. It’s a nutrient blend that you add to a mix that you make, following the recipe card included. After a week I could tell the difference in how he was moving and his energy levels. It’s the one thing that I tell to every dog owner I know; the benefits of making your own dog food can not be understated. I know I sound like a commercial, but it’s really that good." —bauxjangles

    Get it from Just Food For Dogs for $19.95 (available in six flavors).

    15. A lick pad to smear with peanut butter and keep your dog distracted while you do all the things they hate but need to get done (aka nail trims and baths).

    "It seems like a silly simple thing, but it has been life-changing! This lick pad helps my dog feel comfortable getting a bath, nail trims, anything. If he's digging at some peanut butter he DOES NOT CARE what's going on around him." —kristinlovesbikes

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in two colors and as a two-pack).

    16. A dog stroller for bringing your pup on all your outdoor adventures. It's especially great for older or injured pups who have trouble getting around.

    "For my dog it’s definitely his dog stroller! I live in a big apartment building and my dog is old and blind so if he has to walk, he’s pretty exhausted by the time I am able to lead him out of the building. But if he rides in his stroller, he can get out at the park and have lots of energy to explore!" —sarahbarkley

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99 (available in three colors).

    More proof that you need a stroller for your doggo:

    "Definitely agree! My boy is 14 and with a heart murmur and a bad back and knees. He can still enjoy long walks from the safety of his stroller." —armani25

    17. And a waterproof, fleece-lined dog coat with a built-in harness that'll come in handy once it gets cold again. You attach the leash directly to the jacket so you don't have to fiddle with a separate harness and coat.

    "Makes winter walks really easy!" —BuzzFeed Shopping Editor John Mihaly

    Get it from Amazon for $59.90+ (available in five sizes and seven colors).
