    1. A pet hair remover for anyone who's tired of getting fur all over their clothes. Roll it over your couch, bed, favorite blanket, you name it, and watch it lift the fur away. See, we can own nice things!!

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my cat-loving life? Sticky rollers work fine for clothes, but this is the only product that has ever COMPLETELY removed all the cat hair from my bed. I have a long-haired 20-pound tabby and if you run your hands up his back a few times and fling the hair everywhere, it looks like it's snowing — he never stops shedding no matter what I do. After using the ChomChom, I can put on a black dress and roll around on my bed and not get a single hair on me. It's absolutely amazing. Everyone is getting one for Christmas, even if they don't have a pet. I don't care, it's THAT good." —Stephanie

    2. A set of folding stairs to help your short-legged fur baby join you on the couch for cuddles. It's also great for senior pups who have trouble jumping. And despite it weighing only five pounds, it's sturdy enough to be able to support up to 150 pounds.

    Promising review: "Nice stairs to the bed for my 10-year-old 10-pound mixed breed dog. I bought a new mattress last year and it made the bed much higher, and it became circus dog time with her jumping up on the bed. She is great at climbing up stairs, but we are still working on going down the stairs. The stairs are good quality. Happy with this purchase." —SheShe

    Get it from Chewy for $79.95+ (available in two sizes).

    3. An immunity-boosting allergy supplement so dogs with skin sensitivities can just exist without scratching themselves until they bleed. These soft chews deliver a dose of probiotics and other nutrients to help improve immune function, aide digestion, promote healthy skin, and add shine to a dog's coat.,

    Promising review: "Absolutely the best product. It saved my itchy goldendoodle! We tried changing food, Benadryl, medicated shampoo, fish oil, everything you can imagine... nothing worked long-term. He was itching his face so badly he would make himself bleed. Had sores and scabs all over his face and neck. I bought these because they had good reviews and I was desperate. It changed his life! He no longer scratches AT ALL! His coat looks great and all of his sores are healed. He’s the happiest he’s been which makes me a very happy momma. He is also very picky and never eats treats... he eats these every time so that’s an added bonus!" —Darcie Nation

    Get it from Amazon for $26.97 (or Subscribe & Save for $24.27/month).

    4. A dog DNA kit because haven't you always wanted to know exactly what kind of dog your beloved rescue mutt is?

    Diagram showing breakdown of dog's genetic makeup

    Promising review: "We adopted a 4-year-old pup recently. The shelter identified her as a border collie mix. Having no real knowledge of her breeding, I wanted to make sure we had all the information we possibly could! Test came quick, and was easy to use. Results took about three weeks, but were well worth the wait. She was identified as 49% Border Collie, 26.1% Australian Kelpie, and 24.1% 'Super Mutt,' all of which seemed reasonable. Most importantly, the health test was positive for MDR1. I can't even fathom what could have happened had we not had that information! Now we're moving into the future prepared and capable of avoiding (at least one!) major issue! Thank you, Embark and Chewy!" —Wonderbot12

    Get it from Chewy for $134 (originally $199).

    5. A joint support chew with glucosamine, an anti-inflammatory ingredient that'll lubricate your pup's joints so they engage in zoomies without pain. These are especially helpful for very active doggos as well as working breeds and senior pooches.

    Promising review: "My 12-year-old German shepherd has hip dysplasia and had trouble up and down stairs. After a month of taking Glycoflex, he is bouncing up the stairs. He is feeling much less pain and is enjoying his walks much more. I'd like to know if there is a human version of this wonderful product?" —SB

    Get it from Amazon for $31.20.

    6. A pet carrier if you're already dreading flying with your pet in a few weeks. This roomy bag has a sherpa-lined floor so your pet can sit comfortably, as well as mesh sides for ventilation and a top and side entry design so you can get your pet inside with minimal fuss. And the sides collapse slightly so you can easily stow it under an airplane seat.

    Promising review: "Got this bag for transporting my son’s new puppy back and forth to my house. Pup is about five pounds and has plenty of space to move and turn himself around. The bottom is a fluffy lamb's wool material that he likes. The bag is very well made and he can see out all four sides through the mesh. I’m not sure how big this dog will get but for right now, while he can’t be trusted to stay put while riding, this is a great thing." —Barry

    Get it from Chewy for $20.99+ (available in two sizes and three colors).

    7. A portable dog bath for keeping your pupperino smelling nice and fresh without traumatizing them with a bathtub. The special nozzle is designed to get under the fur for a deep clean.

    Promising review: "Once you get everything set up, it's really easy to use and bathtime is pretty quick for my 50-pound dog. If you have a nervous dog, get him used to it first! My dog has PTSD from being a stray and getting hit by a car so he HATES loud noises. The first time we turned it on, we gave him treats and got him to come closer and closer. Now, he doesn't particularly enjoy bath time, but he's not scared of it. I didn't really think I'd use the upholstery-cleaning option, but then my cat vomited on a dining chair and HOLY CRAP does this thing clean cushions well. I was happy with it for the dog cleaning ability, but now I'm totally in love!" —Pamela A Ringstrom

    Get it from Amazon for $149.99.

    8. An ear treatment to clean your poor pet's ears of buildup and prevent inflammation and irritation. These ear drops are designed to protect against a variety of fungal and bacterial infections, like yeast and staph infections.

    Reviewer's before and after showing the treatment cleared all the brown crustiness from their dog's ears

    Promising review: "My dog has had chronic ear infections for years now. Every other month or so she’d get an infection and $200 later we’d have meds from the vet who confirmed what we already knew. I finally decided to give an unprescribed treatment a try and it worked AMAZINGLY. Followed the instructions for a week, and her ear is completely healed! Much easier to pay $20 as opposed to $200 when you get the same results! I highly recommend." —Fromal16

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99.

    9. A treat-tossing Furbo pet camera so you can 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.

    the white Furbo shooting out a treat

    Promising review: "I’m loving Furbo! My 1-year-old GSD has been home with my husband all day every day since the pandemic. Now that he’s going back to work we set up a pen for her and I wanted a way to check on her while we’re not there. Furbo was a great solution! Not only can we check in but we can throw her a treat! The treats are even thrown a nice distance, which is great for our needs because we can have Furbo outside of the pen. (I was nervous she would destroy Furbo if she had the access to it.) I have no complaints. We really love this product. Is it perfect? Not always. But it’s a camera…that shoots a treat to your dog! Pretty amazing if you ask me. 10/10" —Jess

    Get it from Chewy for $118 (originally $199).

    10. A plush Snuggle Puppy because sometimes our four-legged friends need a furry companion too. It's great for pups who are being crate-trained, plus it produces a heartbeat that anxious pooches may find soothing.

    Promising review: "This puppy is amazing. We ordered it after our first two sleepless nights with our chocolate lab. He cried and whined and barked. He is now seven months and this thing is still his BFF. It has held up amazingly well. No holes and he chews and sucks on it daily. No other stuffed toy has lasted, but this one has. It’s dirty and well-loved and still has all stitching and stuffing intact." —L. Arm

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99+ (available in five colors).

    My coworker bought this for her puppy to help him deal with separation anxiety and stress. Check out her SmartPetLove Snuggle Puppy review here for more deets!

    11. A cleansing wrinkle cream that'll wash away tear stains and prevent moisture from building up in skin folds. This is especially useful for squishy-faced breeds — like Frenchies, bulldogs, and pugs — but long-haired breeds can also benefit too.

    Promising review: "AMAZING!!! My baby has wrinkles on top of wrinkles. This product has saved him! He was rubbing his face so hard on things to scratch in between his wrinkles that his whole face would break out and get irritated and his tail pocket gets so yeasty, red, and irritated. I put this product in every little crevice he has. It is soooo amazing!! We don’t ever travel without it! I will forever buy this product. Lifesaver!" —Heather Erin

    Get it from Amazon for $20.43.

    12. A nail grinder if you can't cuddle with your pup because their overgrown claws scratch up your arms and legs. It's super quiet and smooth, which is ideal for dogs who get spooked by regular nail clippers.

    Before photo of dog's nails that are so long they're starting to curve and after photo of the same nails looking short and neatly trimmed

    Promising review: "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 and they recommended I not do that often because of her age. So I got this and hoped for the best. I am beyond impressed and 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." —georgiadiva2k

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    13. Or a nail file board if they don't enjoy the vibrations of the dremmel. This is like an emery board for your dog and is great for pups who cannot handle clippers or grinders.

    Scratchpad for Dogs / Etsy

    Scratchpad for Dogs is a small biz based in Atlanta. Jen Fleming, the store's owner, came up with the idea after adopting a shelter dog named Ripley who absolutely hated having his nails trimmed. 

    Promising review: "Love this scratch pad! We adopted our dog almost a year ago and he's been terrified of clippers and grinders since day one. We've never been able to maintain his nails due to his super reactive anxiety around nail care. That's all changed since we got the Scratchpad a few weeks ago! He took to it right away and his nails have shown significant improvement in just a few sessions!" —Kira Armajani

    Get it from Scratchpad for Dogs on Etsy for $41.95+ (available in two styles and three grit levels).

    14. A bag of dental chews with nubs to help loosen plaque and food bits *and* keep your pupperoni's breath fresh.

    The dental chew, which looks like a toothbrush

    Promising review: "I have been on the hunt for a dental bone that my dogs won't swallow whole. We did the dental sticks for a long time but both my Pomeranian mix and Shih Tzu mix swallowed them whole, and when we switched to bigger ones they would bite once and swallow. These awesome bones actually require my dogs to truly chew them and it takes them two minutes, which is how long us humans are supposed to brush for so I figure it is sufficient. And their previously stink breath is improving quickly!" —Lovefurbabies

    Get a bag from Chewy for $3.49+ (available in larger quantities and for large dogs).

    15. A snout soother so your pup's snoot stays soft, moisturized, and oh-so boopable., Amazon

    Promising review: "Well, I have never before been so shocked at the effectiveness of a product. Our 5-year-old Frenchie, Carol, had a nose that was so crusty it was sprouting these long strands of more crust. There was literally crust on crust on crust. The nose had strings of crust. This nose was so crusty and repulsive it was almost beautiful. Her nose might have resembled the rarest, most exotic geode to be mined from the rarest mine in Guatemala. A friend recommended Snout Soother for Carol's repulsive nose. I was worried she would just lick it all off and it wouldn't work. We never imagined she could have a regular, soft, moist nose again. Honestly this product is some black magic stuff! Unbelievable results in three to five days. No one paid me to write this." —Brittany

    Get it from Amazon for $5.95 (or Subscribe & Save for $5.65/month).

    16. An antibacterial toothpaste that's safe to swallow, because preventing plaque buildup can keep your dog's breath smelling fresh. The vanilla mint scent won't make you want to barf like meat-flavored animal toothpastes, and your fur baby will love the taste.

    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 $10.39 (available in two flavors; or Subscribe & Save for $9.87/month).

    17. A pet brush that'll do the hard work of detangling your pet's matted fur while also removing dead hair to reduce shedding and keep your vacuumed floors fur-free. The stainless steel blade is packed with tiny teeth that are long enough to grasp loose hairs in your dog's or cat's undercoat.

    Before photo of dog with matted coat and after photo of the same dog looking fluffy after being brushed

    Promising review: "Great product! I have a five-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.

    18. A pack of pee pads if you're brand new ~paw-rents~ to an adorable but not potty-trained puppy. They're also great for senior dogs who are prone to accidents, as well as picky pooches who refuse to do their business outside when the temps dip below 30 degrees. These pads have an adhesive backing so they won't slip and slide.


    Promising review: "I had switched over to these pads a couple of years ago. These are the best because the pad turns gelish when my dogs urinate on it. If it leaks it would only be because of where my dogs urinate at (very edge of the pad)." —Maloodie

    Get a pack of 10 from Petsmart for $7.99 (available in larger packs).

    19. 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.

    Promising review: "My dog's molars were turning black and he had a ton of build up 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 $8.12 (or Subscribe & Save for $7.71/month).

    20. A Bissell SpotBot to spare you from spending hours on your hands and knees scrubbing dog poop from the carpet. Who wants to do that? The answer: no one.

    This portable carpet cleaner will spray, brush, and suction up any stain, no adult supervision needed. It also comes with a hose and tool attachment if you'd prefer a more hands-on cleaning session.

    Promising review: "This machine is amazing. I was shocked. My dogs had a severe diarrhea blowout from getting into some people food and garbage. My carpet looked beyond repair. We used the cleaning solution that came with it and also used Nature's Miracle carpet shampoo liquid. I am sold on the SpotBot. It is fabulous and gets out any set-in stain. Not a trace left and we didn't have to do a thing but move the machine to a different spot when it was done. No work for us!" —MK

    Get it from Amazon for $185.39.

    21. An adorable and basically tear-resistant stuffed duck so you can stop spending money on toys that your furry destroyer shreds in approximately 10 seconds. This lil' yellow duck doesn't look like it, but it's built to last.

    Promising review: "My dog Hazel LOVES this duck! She has had it for nine months now, and it’s still intact! It somehow made it through her teething as a puppy. She rips and tears apart all of her toys, but this one still looks decent!" —Emily A

    Get it from Amazon for $4.23.

    22. A wood polish because there are scratch marks from your dog's overgrown nails along the bottom of your doors and on your wood floor. This will fill in the cracks while leaving behind a protective layer of hydrating and conditioning oils.

    Promising review: "I honestly can’t believe how well this stuff works. Like magic it restored pet claw- AND pet water bowl-damaged wood all over my house. I am amazed at the results. Thank you! (This is NOT a paid review.)" —Nicole Thomas

    Get it from Amazon for $8.98.

    23. A pair of dog leggings (!!!!!) that'll protect Fido's legs — not just his paws — protected from many of the hazards of winter. Now he can play in all the puddles and snow and you don't have to deep clean your carpets. A win-win!

    Walkee Paws

    Walkee Paws is a small biz started by pet owner Lisa Baronoff. You may have seen them on Shark Tank! Get 15% off site-wide with the code WALKEEBUZZ.

    Promising review: "I love the Walkee Paws. Unlike the other type of dog boots, these stay on her tiny feet. My little girl never liked walking in the rain or snow. The first time I put them on her inside the house, she was hesitant to walk but with a little coaxing she walked off the rug onto the wooden floor. When she realized that she didn't slip, she started acting silly running back and forth in the house. Now she loves walking in the snow and water puddles." —Cynthia C.

    Get them from Walkee Paws for $39.99 (available in sizes XS–L and in nine colors).

    24. An interactive dog toy if your doggo loses interest with their other toys almost immediately. Your fur baby will spend hours rooting around the trunk for squirrels — and you'll finally have some time to yourself.

    Reviewer photo of their dog playing with the toy

    Promising review: "My son's Yorkiepoo stays at my place a lot, mostly because I take him to a nearby university campus, where, well-trained as he is, I can let him off-lead and chase squirrels to his heart's content. He is obsessed with squirrels now, so we thought this would be a fun Christmas toy for him. We followed the advice of other reviewers and supervised to try to delay the death of all the squirrels. We let him play with the tree trunk after he had rooted out all the squirrels and tried to kill them, as a dog will do. He loves the tree trunk — so much so that he makes love to it every time we let him play with it. He is nearly 5 years old, and was neutered as a pup, and never was much for humping, but he goes after that tree trunk like a prisoner on a conjugal visit every time we set it out for him to play with. If we have guests, it's a floor show. He doesn't care. I'm not quite sure what to make of all this, but as long as it makes him happy." —PBH

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in four sizes).

    25. A ~paw-sitively~ adorable dog sweater for the ~hypebeast~ who needs a little extra help staying warm in the cooler months.

    Little Beast

    Little Beast is an Asian woman-owned small business started by friends Jisu Kim and Lys Bui.

    Get it from Little Beast (available in sizes XXS–XL) and Nordstrom (available in sizes XS–XL) for $65.

    26. A devastatingly effective handheld vacuum to suck up pet hair. It has a special rubber nozzle that picks up fur with ease, especially on hard-to-vacuum areas like stairs. There's no bag, so simply pop off the canister when you're done vacuuming and dump the contents in the trash.

    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 cotton swab. 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 (above)! 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 $47.27 (available with or without filter).

    27. A Chuckit! ball launcher so you can tire out your energetic pup with minimum effort on your part. You'll both have a ball — literally and figuratively!

    The blue plastic launcher and orange and blue tennis ball

    Promising review: "At first I thought these toys were pointless but if your dog loves to run, your time spent at the park will be cut in half because your dog will tucker out much faster. Easy to use, light, and fights any tennis ball." —drogosmom

    Get it from Petsmart for $10.95+ (available in two sizes).

    28. A bag of pill pockets because your dog has mastered the art of extricating their medicine from the cheese slice encasing it. This moldable pocket hides the pill *and* prevents them from spitting out the tablet.

    the bag of pill pockets

    Promising review: "We use these every morning and night for our dog's epilepsy medication. She takes six pills each day. These treats are so perfectly malleable; we're able to break one pill pocket apart, squish each half like a pancake and wrap three pills in each half a pocket. Not to mention she absolutely loves the treat itself. I would absolutely recommend this product to my friends and family." —Chester Pandora

    Get 60 pockets from Petsmart for $14.98.

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

    Before photo of a dog's paw pads looking dry next to an after photo of the same dog's paws looking moisturized after applying the balm

    Promising review: "My dog has extremely dry and cracked paws, so rough she gets stuck to the carpet. I've tried just about everything, all failed for various reasons. This product works. I was only able to do one paw the first time, she fought me like a demon. Next time she let me do all four with little fuss, she likes the result. I followed everyone's lead and put it on right before walks. I've noticed that she wants to run and jump more, and genuinely is happy with her feet. One downside is because it softens the pads you have to be careful where they step; she picked up a thorny branch where before the treatment it wouldn't penetrate. Fair trade in my opinion; now we can play and snuggle without her scratching me up. Bottom line: love it, the dog loves it, good value little goes a long ways.Peggy

    30. An odor-eliminating spray if you want to lift stains and odors 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.

    The spray

    Rocco & Roxie is a family-owned small business named after the Magleby family's pets Rocco, a labradoodle, and Roxie, a former shelter tabby cat. They make a variety of pet supplies, including cleaners, treats, grooming tools, accessories, and toys.

    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

    31. An eye rinse for clearing away debris that could be irritating your dog's eyes. Plus, it'll help get rid of tear stains — aka those annoying reddish streaks some dogs have around their eyes.

    Reviewer's before and after photo showing the rinse got rid of their white dog's tear stains

    Promising review: "I have two Shih Tzus. They had watery eyes and a little tear staining, but this eye solution has worked wonderfully. One drop in their eyes every morning after I’ve cleaned them. At one point I stopped doing it for awhile, and my male ended up with a stye, so back to every day." —CG

    32. A broom for pet hair to loosen the fur trapped in your carpet. It works just as well on wood and linoleum, with the rubber head working as a magnet to attract stray hairs. There's also a built-in squeegee for wiping up liquids or for cleaning glass. Plus, the handle extends from 36 to 60 inches so it can reach practically any mess.

    Promising review: "I bought this broom based on the tons of great reviews and I am not disappointed. I love this broom! It is lightweight but sturdy. I have used it on tile floors and carpet and it does a great job of getting the pet hair, lint, and dirt. I like this so much better than our traditional push broom. It is very easy to clean after use just using my hand, unlike our old broom. It also has a telescoping handle so that you can adjust it to whatever height you need. There is also a squeegee for doing the house windows and the car windows. I highly recommend it." —Joyce V

    Get it from Amazon for $12.98.

    33. 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.

    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 $12.99.

    34. A set of mini combs because it gently detangles the fur around their eyes that's crusted with eye boogers. This stainless steel brush delicately picks out the goop so you don't have to touch it yourself.

    Promising review: "My cockapoo had tear staining as a pup but as an adult he just gets that goop in the corner of his inner eyes. Sometimes I don’t catch the goop fast enough and it hardens in his muzzle. Even when I do, the goop is slimy and difficult to remove even with dog wipes. This tool is a miracle! Small, light weight and a good value for the price. Just one comb through and I got the sticky wet goop. A few more comb throughs and I found eye gunk that was buried in his muzzle. Most importantly, this comb removed the debris without causing any discomfort to my pooch. In fact, he seemed to enjoy it! Just look at the pictures." —Joanna

    35. An electric pet shaver that'll make trimming your pet's fur a breeze. This set comes with four guard combs so you don't accidentally nick the skin, as well as a set of clippers. Reviewers say it's quiet — a plus if your pets are sensitive to noise.

    Promising review: "These grooming clippers are amazing! I have a small Yorkie who used to be a pound puppy and was always scared when she got groomed because of the sound. But after purchasing these clippers my dog is extremely calm. They are indeed quiet, not extremely loud like most pet clippers. Makes giving her a haircut very easy. Beautiful set and comes with everything included. When I ordered it, it was really fast delivery and I am extremely happy with this order. If ever we need this product in the future I would buy it again." —MinimalArt

    36. A really genius Molly Mutt bed if you're in possession of a lot of old pillows, blankets, and clothes that are too ratty to donate. Toss 'em in a Molly Mutt stuff sack, cover it in a cute duvet so no one knows what's inside, and gift it to your good boy. You'll love that your old stuff won't end up in a landfill, and your pup will be comforted by the familiar smell of you.

    Promising review: "This doggy duvet is gorgeous! It fits our oversized dog bed perfectly. The material is thick, the color is rich, and it has a sturdy zipper. The duvet washes beautifully and is super easy to put on the bed. Highly recommend!" —lisa d
