    1. A Paw Plunger paw cleaner so your floors aren't covered in muddy footprints after letting your dog inside. Inside the container are soft bristles that lift dirt and grime from the pads of your pup's feet — all you need to do is add water.

    Promising review: "Best money I've ever spent on a dog with feet. We have a goldendoodle with curly hair and large paws, and a brand-new yard on the coast that is 95% sand. Our new veterinarian, upon hearing me whine about the situation, recommended I buy this product because she uses it with her own dogs. From the first time I used it I was sold! It looks like one of those oversized water jugs you can get at a convenience store, with a fitted insert for paws and legs. I stuck my hand (and my kids') inside to try it out and the bristles inside are very soft, and will not hurt sensitive paw pads. I wish I'd found this years ago; it would have saved my sanity and my floors many times over. I've already recommended it to my friends and family with dogs who understand the struggle." —Heather

    2. A year-round paw protection cream to guard against scorching hot sidewalks and sand in the summer and ice and salt in the winter. It's made with vitamin E to keep the paw pads moisturized, but some reviewers use it on their dry, cracked heels as well as their tattoos.

    Promising review: "I live in Florida where the pavement gets very hot in the summer. I started to notice my dog’s pads getting chapped and rough. Whenever I would touch them he would recoil, which made me think they were bothering him. I ordered Mushers because I hate when my hands are dry and I couldn’t stand to think my baby might be uncomfortable or even in pain! It was actually difficult to apply at first because my dogs paws were so rough. After the first application I noticed a difference in the texture of his paws. Not just immediately after application but the following day as well. When I went to apply the next day I noticed it was significantly easier to apply because my dog’s paws were significantly softer. With every subsequent application I noticed my dog’s paws were softer and less rough. After five days of application they feel like a baby’s butt! Definitely recommend and will be repurchasing. This has become part of my pup’s routine." —Lexi Berger

    Get it from Amazon for $21.55 (originally $25).

    3. An adorably ~a-peel-ing~ fruit tart pet bed that'll keep your fur baby cozy and provide tons of cute Instagram photo opps. I'll be ~berry~ sad if you don't get this!

    Check out my colleage's review of the fruit tart bed (#6) for more deets and some seriously cute photos of her cats enjoying it.

    Promising review: "My kitten loves this bed. Along with looking cute, it is incredibly soft. The fruit give extra support for her to lie on, and she loves to play with the fruit. The lemon and kiwi are her favorite to play with. It doubles as a bed and some toys. She took to this bed immediately, and she often won't leave it. It's also pretty flexible, so I can put it in her carrier for vet visits so she'll feel comfortable. Everyone I show this bed to thinks it's the cutest thing ever, and I'm so glad to have found this." —Casandra B

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99.

    4. A donut dog bed because your dog deserves to be spoiled too! 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

    Promising review: "Our 11-pound Chihuahua, Lucy, absolutely loves this bed! It took her a few minutes to get used to this new thing in her life after we first introduced her to it, and now she practically lives in it! We bought the small size. It’s incredibly soft and well-padded on the sides and the bottom. The interior edges are deep enough that she can 'burrow' into them. She’ll often put her leg(s) or head into that area. It’s as comfortable when placed on our hardwood floors as when it’s on the sofa. I’ve posted pictures of Lucy enjoying her bed on Facebook and Instagram, and already a few friends are going to order one for their own dogs. If they came in human size, I’d be tempted to order one for myself! " —katydid26

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

    5. The Furbo, a treat-tossing pet camera if you like being able to keep an eye on your pet even when you're not home. With its 160-degree wide-angle view, night vision, and real-time barking alerts you'll know exactly what your pup is up to.

    6. A doggie raincoat for keeping your furry friend warm and dry when nature calls but it's raining outside. Also, it will fit a pygmy goat, which tbh might not be useful for you, but here's a photo of a pygmy goat wearing a raincoat, so you're welcome!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Love these raincoats. Ordered three altogether. They are tough, cute, and keep my dogs dry. I have purchased other flimsy raincoats that did not keep my dogs dry. I am extremely pleased with these. The little hoods are cute too. The purpose of the raincoats are so that I only have to dry off their feet when they return from their walk. These sturdy little coats are great. My furry kids seem to like them, and they stay in place without slipping and sliding. Fantastic price for great product. Awesome! :-)" —Barbara N.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (originally $18.04; available in sizes XS–2XL).

    7. A cat tree house so your kitties can have their own hangout space away from their annoying dog brothers. The platform is textured and can withstand your cat's climbing, jumping, relaxing, and scratching.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "At first, our cat wouldn't climb onto it, even with coaxing her with treats and catnip. We think it might have had a smell or something about it from the container. But now, it's her FAVORITE part of the house; she's on it all the time! It was pretty easy to assemble and is a really cool cat tree. We didn't want a 'carpet' tree, and the extra foliage fits nicely in our house!" —The Queen of Anneland

    Get it from Amazon for $91.20 (originally $154.99; available in three sizes and three styles).

    8. An elevated dog bed with a canopy to keep your pupperino cool when they're hanging out with you in the backyard.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "LOVE this! It's an 'absolutely cannot live without' item! It lives in the back of my truck and withstands tons of tossing and rinsing off in salt water. If we go to the beach for a quick walk, my dog is MADDDD and wants it out LOL! HIGHLY recommend!!!" —LPJerseyGirl

    Get it from Amazon for $57.99 (available in two sizes and three colors).

    9. An odor-eliminating spray that'll lift stains and stink fast. Each spray releases bacteria that feeds on the ammonia left behind after your pet's accidents, eliminating the urine completely and deterring your pet from peeing in the same spot again.

    Check out our in-depth review of Rocco & Roxie Professional Strength Stain & Odor Eliminator.

    Promising review: "I have six elderly cats, and a few of them oftentimes leave smelly pee puddles to register their disdain at whatever cats get 'peed off' about. It's not a litter box problem and, although I've caught one or two of them doing it, I can't blame them all. This product works great on fresh messes as well as dried ones. After blotting up fresh pee pods, I saturate the area with Rocco & Roxie's odor remover and let dry. For dried stinky stuff, I just saturate the area and let it dry. It has a pleasant odor and completely eliminates the ammonia odor. Believe me, I've tried all kinds of products, and this one works the best. I buy gallons now just to have on hand. It's better than smelling that awful pee!" —mona mia

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    10. A roomy doggie travel bag because you shouldn't forget about your pets when you're preparing for your next adventure. The backpack itself is large enough to hold all your pup's essentials, plus it comes with two food carriers, a placemat, and two silicone collapsible bowls.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This thing is perfect! It holds an ample amount of food for a few day/nights. I love the dividers, so that you can quickly access the things you need, when you need them. The included collapsable bowls are awesome! I’ve coupled this with a traveling dispensing water bottle, which is also great while in the car. Love this travel bag! We look forward to getting a lot of use out of it with our fur baby!" —Niki P.

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99 (also available in purple).

    11. A seriously genius doggie doorbell if you're tired of cleaning up after your pooch even though they're most definitely potty trained. Teach your dogs to ring a doorbell when they have to do their business, and you will have never run around the house asking, "Who did this?" as your dog tries to avoid making eye contact.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Our 5-month old pug knows he's not supposed to do his business inside the house. He's trained that well at least. However, we've had a hard time getting him to communicate to us that he needs to go outside to do his business. With this little doorbell at nose level for him, he picked it up within a day and hasn't had an accident inside the house since. Love having this thing because we don't need to be in the same room with him to know that he has to go outside. He just runs down to the door, smacks the button with his paw, and the chime sends us into action." —Jason Pyrz

    Get it from Amazon for $30.

    12. A liquid tartar remover for dogs who desperately need their teeth cleaned but who also won't let you near them with a toothbrush. (Think of it as doggy mouthwash!) Just add this to their water and you'll notice your dog's plaque and bad breath subside.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My dog's molars were turning black and he had a ton of buildup on his canines. In the photo (above), just imagine everywhere you see slight yellow, instead covered in black and brown gunk and hard plaque. His gums were beginning to look inflamed. And, of course, his breath could kill a horse. After one week of constant use (a cap full for every bowl of water) you could see an obvious difference in tooth color. I was blown away. (Why can’t human mouthwash do such a good job on our teeth?) After three weeks, his molars were almost completely clean. After a couple months of use, the plaque on his canines was soft enough to brush some of it off, which was totally impossible before. Plaque covered the canine approximately 70%. Obviously that's no longer the case. Idk what insane solvent this is made of, but it keeps his gross mouth clean as a whistle. Now I don’t have to worry about my picky princess mutt losing his teeth because he can’t be bothered to chew anything." —BaconPancakes

    Get it from Amazon for $9.39.

    13. An automatic litter box so you can win the war against scooping poop. Reviewers say that not only does it help reduce the frequency with which their kitties leave surprises *outside* the box, but it also helps reduce the amount of litter that gets tracked into the house.

    Reviewer photo of the purple domed litter box
    amazon.com

    Each litter box comes with a pre-portioned package of litter that you pour into the tray. After the tray's sensor detects that your cat has left the box, it will clean the tray in 5, 10, or 20 minutes, depending on which setting you choose. When the tray is full, simply remove it and dispose of it.

    Promising review: "This is a really great idea for busy people such as myself. I love cats, but not their litter box. This one is really odor free and does all the dirty work. You will love it. I recommend it to all cat lovers It is a timesaver as well." —Coco

    Get it from Amazon for $169.95.

    14. A top entry litter box that'll keep the litter where it belongs: in the dang box and NOT all over your floors and carpet. It has a grooved lid to catch any litter that's attached itself to your cat's paws, plus it comes with scoop!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I LOVE this litter box. It comes with an adorable scooper and place to hang it, and the subtle color helps it blend in the the room without really screaming 'there’s poop in here.' It’s not only discreet, but it keeps my cat from making a mess as she leaves. I got one of the dome types last because after she finishes she feels the random urge to bolt from the litter like a ghost is after her. (Cats, amiiright?!) but not with this. She has to take her time and jump out. And what little litter she does track out is caught on the top piece that is so easy to remove and clean. And the price point is perfect too!" —Shelly B.

    Get it from Amazon for $30.95 (available in four colors).

    15. A catnip tunnel toy to drive your cat wild with excitement. The inner lining of the pants is a crinkly material that'll easily grab your cat's attention, and the leg tunnels create a safe space where your kitty can hide.

    Reviewer photo of their cat lying in the leg of pants
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is by far the absolute best cat toy, especially if you have two cats that need to become better playmates. We call them the clown pants and both our cats spend time running through them each day. Often one gets in one leg and the other gets in the other leg. That is actually how the two of them began to enjoy being together and learned that they could play with one another. There aren't enough superlative words to describe how much our cats enjoy this toy. It is so superior to the long straight tubes and takes up so much less space. But don't expect it to stay in a special spot in your house, with all the running and sliding that goes on inside these pants they are constantly finding a new place to rest. Thankfully stepping on them doesn't hurt them, nor have I found them to be a trip hazard." —York Gardner

    Get it from Amazon for $19.40 (originally $35.07).

    16. A cat charmer toy that'll quickly become your kitty's favorite plaything. This is your chance to finally — finally! — earn your cat's love and affection.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is my second one. It's all of my past and present cats' favorite toy. And, it's fun for me to use to play with them. You can flick it slowly, hang it over the bed edge and pull it slowly. They love to be teased by slow moving flicks. It's made well enough to have lasted 20 years (until my dog got jealous and ate part of the clear rod. That's the only reason I had to order a new one. The 20-year-old one looks new (and chewed by my dog)." —Captain Elizabeth

    Get it from Amazon for $7.79.

    17. A stackable cube bed because it's easy to assemble and even easier to stack them when you get another cat...and then another...and then another...

    Reviewer photo of the cube bed with one cat resting on top and one cat resting inside
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Both of my cats settled into this cat cube immediately. It's really simple to set up and so far is surprisingly sturdy. It's a lot larger than I thought. Both my cats weigh 12 pounds and have no problems. It's also somewhat heavy (not ridiculously heavy)...but enough so that they can't push it over." —Andrea

    Get it from Amazon for $30.99+ (also available in an outdoor version).

    18. A purring cat toy if your kitty suffers from anxiety. This purple guy has a built-in purring mechanism so your feline can enjoy the sensation of curling up to another purring "cat." It also plays calming, comforting sounds.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Works like a charm! I recently found myself a cat mama of an abandoned week-old kitten. I bought this knowing she needed just something to cuddle up to in her bed. Turns out it basically hypnotizes her to sleep. She crawls to it, kneads it and eventually her meows turn to silence. I wish the purring lasted longer but for $10 it is a lifesaver. She's pooped on it a couple times so I've had to throw it in the washer and dryer minus the battery pack. It's held up great." —S Leytem

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    19. A stimulating brain teaser toy for small pets like rabbits, chinchillas, and guinea pigs that'll reward them for using their noggin with delicious treats.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I got this for my chinchilla for Christmas — she loved it. It's nice to see a toy for her that makes her have to use her nose and think rather than just some chew toys and exercise things." —GuineaCat12

    Get it from Amazon for $20.43 (originally $26.99).

    20. A grooming rake so you can loosen fur and lighten your dog's undercoat and prevent future mats. This brush is specifically designed for pooches with thick, dense fur or double coats.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I wish I could give this thing seven stars, but five 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. Check the photo to see what 20 minutes will get you." —pvfjr

    Get it from Amazon for $9.51 (originally $12.99).

    21. A special doggie seat belt to keep your dog safe *and* comfortable while they're riding in the car. It latches into your seatbelts and is designed to restrain your pup while still allowing them to sit, stand, or lie down.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My car was totaled when a car going 45 miles per hour in the opposite direction crossed lanes and hit us. My dog was wearing her seatbelt and the police and EMTs were shocked that she was OK and didn’t fly through the windshield on impact. They could barely get my door open and I went to the hospital, but my dog was injury-free. I just purchased a new set for my new car, and I would recommend these without question to any dog owner!" —Coral Smith

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $9.99 (available in six colors).

    22. A arched self groomer brush that'll satisfy your cat's ceaseless demands for scritches. Just set it down in the living room and watch as your beloved babies leave you for its warm embrace.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My cat likes this a lot! He is timid and was afraid of it at first, but I put some of the catnip on it and a few of his favorite treats to entice him and show it was a good thing. I also rubbed my hands along the bristles and scratched the carpet on the base with my fingers a few times to catch his attention and show him what to do. Now he can be found relaxing on the base, rubbing his face and chin on the bristles, and going under the arch to brush his back and tail at any given time throughout the day. He has had some minor flaking from dry skin, but being able to groom himself using this product even when I'm not home has helped." —T. Jamie K

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    23. A Chuckit! ball launcher because it'll help your dog get maximum enjoyment from a trip to the dog park with minimum effort on your part. You'll both have a ball — literally and figuratively!

    The launcher
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My dog never understood the concept of Fetch. It didn't matter what I tried. This FINALLY has her fetching and using up all (OK, most) of the energy that a cattle dog has. We can play over and over and over without my measly arm wearing out, and she's able to sprint to her heart's content. I'm already planning to gift one to my brother's dog who also is fetch-dumb." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.92 (originally $12.99; available in 10 varieties).

    24. A Pet House candle if your home smells like wet dog and old cat pee no matter how many times you clean. These candles are made specifically for homes with pets and offer up to 60 hours of burn time — plenty of cozy hours spent snuggling on the couch with your fur babies.

    Reviewer photo of the candle
    amazon.com

    My colleague swears by these; read her Pet House candles review to learn more.

    Promising review: "I used to be a candle addict before my son was diagnosed with asthma. Since then I only buy candles made with 100% soy wax. We adopted our first family dog a few weeks ago, and even though we keep her clean, the smell in the house has changed. I LOVE this candle. I love that my son hasn’t had a flare with his asthma from the candle. I love that my house doesn’t smell like dog, even the day after I’ve used it. I’m planning to buy A LOT more scents from this brand." —Megan

    Get it from Amazon for $21.95 (available in a variety of scents).

    25. A Goughnuts chew ring for enthusiastic chewers. It's designed by engineers who made rubber for aircrafts and spaceships so you know it's really, really durable.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Bought this for my dog who is basically Godzilla to dog toys everywhere. She destroys EVERYTHING that we give her to play with. It took her about an hour to massacre the black extreme Kong toy. Anything with stuffing and squeakers is just a cruel joke. I bought one of the Goughnuts with the mindset of, 'at least chunks of Goughnuts scattered around the living room will be better than stuffing and squeaker bits everywhere.' It has been almost two months now, and this thing still looks BRAND-NEW. She has gone to town on it, to no avail. Her newest ritual is to spend an hour or two licking and chewing it, before giving up and using it as a pillow while she recharges for a new assault. This is seriously THE BEST purchase ever." —Bri

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99 (available in five colors and three toughness levels).

    26. Or a near indestructible Jolly Ball so your play session don't end with a shredded toy.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: My 1-year-old Pyredane loves this big ball. She carries it around and loves to chew the rope and the ball. Her greatest delight is in gnashing and destroying toys, and my delight is if they last more than a week (ballistic material toys don't stand a chance with her). The Jolly Pet Romp-n-Roll makes us both happy. We play chase games with it but she also enjoys playing with it by herself. There are teeth marks all over the ball and the rope is a little frayed, but both are holding up fabulously. The ball was a little stiff new from the package, but after sitting in the yard for about a week, the ball softened enough that she can squeeze it. When she finally destroys it, I'll definitely buy another." —L. Colburn

    Get it from Amazon for $18.68 (originally $24.12; available in three sizes and six colors).

    27. An automatic water fountain to encourage your picky cats to stay hydrated. Some cats hate drinking still water (long story short, it's a defense mechanism), so a fountain with running water may be more enticing.

    Reviewer photo of the fountain, which has a flower-shaped spout
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Cats aren't prone to drinking enough water, and they also abhor getting their whiskers wet. This fountain, recommended by a friend, was a huge hit from the moment I set it up and solved both of those problems. My kitty now guzzles water any time she wishes, which is definitely more than before (and yay, I don't have to turn the sink on for her now, which was the only way she'd drink water). This is fantastic!" —Pgilly

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (also available in blue).

    28. A portable shower attachment that'll come in handy when your pup inevitably gets dirty on one of your outdoor adventures. It attaches to standard plastic water bottle openings, is machine-washable, and comes with a lifetime warranty.

    The product

    Get it from Amazon for $11.95.

    29. A collapsible dog bowl because your furry friend needs to stay hydrated too. It folds flat, making it a ~port-a-bowl~ option you can easily store in your backpack or pocket the next time you're on the go.

    The bowl
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this bowl!! It's lightweight. You could shove it in your pocket. It has a loop for hanging or attaching it. I've used it a few times on walks and around the house. My dog loves to drink from it. It holds more than her collapsible dog bowl. Today I leak tested it. I filled it with cold water so at first it did have some moisture under and around the bottom. After two hours, several dog slurps and the water warming, there is no moisture and the bottom is dry. Just noticed it was sitting in direct sunlight so I temp tested. The water inside is still very cool. This is a great buy!!" —baduffy

    Get it from Amazon for $5.59 (originally $6.99).

    30. A pill pocket treat if your kitty can sniff out its medicine no matter how you try and hide it. It's a win-win here — you win because you no longer have to force a pill down your kitty's throat, and they win because they're getting a treat *and* their medicine.

    amazon.com

    Each bag has approximately 45 pockets.

    Promising review: "These pill pockets make life so much easier! Saves a twice-a-day fight! It only takes a second to place the pills inside and pinch it shut. My cat loves the treat! In five months he's only managed to get the pill out of the treat once but I think it was the end of the bag when the treats may become less moist. Be sure to seal the bag well after using to keep the treats as fresh and pliable as possible. I can fit about two small pills max into each treat." —Melissa

    Get it from Amazon for $6.49 (available in three flavors).

    31. A pet-hair remover for anyone who's tired of a car that's covered in fur after a trip to the dog park. Roll it over your car seats and carpet, and watch it lift the fur away. See, we can own nice things!!

    The tool removing dog hair from a car seat
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have owned many devices from handheld sweepers to sticky tape to help keep my house as hair-free as I can. It is somewhat of a challenge since I own four hairy dogs. Since I purchased the Kurgo Shed Sweeper it has made removing hair from bed covers to couches to dog beds much easier and more successful. The sweeper will allow you to sweep all the hair easily in one pile and then be picked up by hand or vacuum. I have actually purchased three more since my first so that I can have a Kurgo Sweeper in every corner of my house." —Tat

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    32. A slow feeder bowl so your fast eater doesn't inhale their meal in a minute flat. These ridged bowls can help improve digestion, reduce bloating, and encourage your dog's foraging skills to keep their mind active.

    Reviewer photo of the bowl with dog food in it
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "We adopted a sweet three-legged 50-pound Dutch shepherd from the Humane Society recently. Her former two homes were bad, and she had to fight for her food. Because of this, she has crazy food aggression and inhales her food in a regular bowl. A friend recommended this bowl to us and it is FAB-U-LOUS! We mix up some homemade dog food (wet) along with grain free kibble and spread it around the bowl. Our girl takes FAR longer to eat now. I'm guessing around five to seven minutes? The bowl works best on a smooth, noncarpeted surface as it has grip on the bottom. This ensures that the bowl doesn't slide around. It is also heavy duty, durable plastic that can go in the dishwasher (if I hand clean it, I soak in soapy water and scour with kitchen scrubber). Great product! I highly recommend this bowl for your fur baby too." —Shan the Painter

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

    33. A treat-dispensing ball to exercise your dog's mind and challenge their problem-solving skills. Reviewers even suggest filling it with your dog's kibble if they're fast eaters as this will force them to slow down and may help with their digestion.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "My dog is a fast eater. This toy keeps her busy for hours trying to get treats out of the ball. I put larger pieces of treats inside to slow down kibble from coming out of the ball. It's larger than others so it doesn't get stuck under furniture." —Lauren Howroyd

    Get it from Amazon for $12.23.

    34. The FrogLog, an escape ramp you put in your pool that'll save the unfortunate critters who might otherwise drown. OK, OK, so they're not technically your pets, but they may be willing to join the family as thanks for being rescued.

    Promising review: "We had been inundated with frogs last year (I believe due to the borough removing a dam downstream, greatly improving the water quality of the stream behind our pool) and I kept finding little frogs in the skimmers, many of which did not make it until I could rescue them. This product is doing EXACTLY as I had hoped! Since I purchased this the frogs had not been getting in the skimmers and my frog tally for 2016 is now 28 rescued, 14 fatalities. Here is my proof." —Sandra J. Christian

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (originally for $33.95).
