    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My cat Gambino Bambino would let you brush him bald!!! He loves to be groomed and comes running whenever the brush comes out. Though we love to accommodate, I know he wanted more. He was constantly rubbing his cheeks and ears on the corner of our walls to get even more scratching. I finally came across this product and knew he would love it! It took a little convincing but once he got a hang of it he’s been loving it! We have one in the living room, one in the kitchen, one at the top of the stairs and one in the guest room! He is having a great time!!! Very easy to put together and place on the wall." —T. Mangiaracina

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    2. A pet hair roller if you love your fur babies but hate how much they shed...on everything. Roll it over your couch, bed, favorite blanket, you name it, and watch it lift the fur away. See, we can own nice things!!

    amazon.com

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

    3. Or this pet hair remover to do the dang job. This thingamajig couldn't be easier to use; just run it over your carpet, couch, clothes, car seats, and more and it'll collect pet fur that's deeply embedded.

    Promising review: "Just as advertised. Easy to use and definitely removes the hair." —ksh

    Get it from Amazon for $10.19.

    4. A hair-removing glove for curb your dog's shedding as well as satisfying his endless desire for some rubbies. It's great if your dog or cat goes running at the sight of a brush.

    The grooming glove with silicone nodules, full of hair held in front of a French bulldog
    AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

    My colleague AnaMaria Glavan swears by this thing. In her own words:

    "The glove is super comfortable and using it couldn’t be more foolproof: just put it on and run your hands through your pet’s fur. That’s it! The silicone grooves pick up so much fur with ease. Like, my dog looks close to hairless. HOW is he shedding so much!?!? After a few runs, I found that I would have to remove fur from the glove before continuing (you can pick up the fur with your other hand or run the glove under some water — either works) but it’s no biggie. The silicone actually makes it really easy to keep this clean. We got Rockie when he was 5 and he’d been riddled with skin issues and allergies, so I was pretty nervous to use anything that could potentially aggravate his conditions. However! Not only does this *not* bother his skin, but he…loves this. A lot. He starts snoring after exactly two run-throughs on his back. Also, his coat looks SO shiny after each use! TL;DR: this is one of those inexpensive add-ons that any pet owner should have on hand."

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    5. A portable 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.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This product is great. My puppy is a digger and we have red clay type dirt. It gets her paws clean fast and easily. So much better than having to get a bath every time she digs." —Mandi Bultman

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

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

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Very cool! My dog is a rescue and I was told he was a border collie mix. His personality lead me to do a test because he just didn’t have the personality a border collie. Come to find out he’s a Shih Tzu-pitbull mix, which makes way more sense." —dede123

    Get it from Amazon for $159.

    7. Or a cat DNA test (it's from Shark Tank!) that'll help explain the quirks of your adopted shelter cat...like their insistence that they knock all the food out of their dish before picking up each piece individually. So weird!

    The results of a test showing the breed groups a cat could belong to
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I purchased this kit because I have a 18-pound green-eyed, long-haired cat, whom everyone asks me about. 'Is she a Maine Coon?' 'Is she part Maine Coon?' I had no idea as to her lineage, as I found her struggling for her survival on the street and had no idea who her parents were. She turned out not to be a Maine Coon, but showed similar ancestry to rag dolls. Believable, as she’s very people friendly and almost acts like a dog. However, the most important part of this test is the health reports. I’ve sent a copy to her veterinarian, so that we can be on the lookout for anything she may be predisposed to and to have the vet give suggestions as to how to avoid certain outcomes. I’m very happy with the test and recommend it to anyone with concerns about their cat’s health or curiosity about their lineage." —Madouc

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99.

    8. A dog treat mix if your pet deserves only the best. Just combine the mix with oil and water and pop it in the oven for a protein-rich biscuit that's made to add shine to your dog's coat, encourage healthy skin and nails, help reduce shedding and scratching, and aid digestion and overall health.

    Whisk & Wag, Amazon

    Whisk & Wag is a family-owned business crafting nutritious dry dog treat mixes.

    It also comes with a heart-shaped cookie cutter.

    Promising review: "I’m a cookie baker so when I found this product, I was all over it! I was nervous that our doggo wouldn’t like them but they’re his new favorite! You definitely smell the peanut butter and can see the dried berries throughout the mixture. The dough was a bit crumbly for the cut-out hearts but it worked out fine! I probably could’ve added more water than what it called for to make the dough the consistency I’m used to. I also bought some icing specific for dogs and drizzled it over the treats once they were cool. This brand is our new go-to!" —Haley

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    9. 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.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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.

    11. 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.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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 $7.90.

    12. A treat puzzle maze because this is the one toy your kitty will love more than the box...because this is a box! Well, a box of mystery, to be exact. It encourages your cat's natural curiosity and hunting instincts, and you can fill it with kibble, treats, crinkly toys, catnip, and more to add more excitment.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "For $15 I thought why not try it. It had good reviews. Well my cat Homer usually likes the box the toy came in more than the actual toy, but not this time. He really seems to enjoy it and it keeps him entertained and stimulated. This might be his all time favorite plaything. We've had this toy for at least a year and it still looks new. It is the best toy he has." —Mjojo6331

    Get it from Amazon for $15.48.

    13. A pooper scooper that'll scoop the dang poop so you don't have to kneel down to pick it up.

    The pooper scooper, which has a rake and a garbage bin
    Amazon

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $17.95.

    14. A brightening shampoo if your pup's white coat is looking a little dull. This soap-free shampoo is made for white and light colored coats, and can help soften your dog's fur while making it shine. (Psst! If your dog's coat is changing colors, you may want to schedule an appointment with a vet as this may be a sign of health issues.)

    Get it from The Barke Shoppe for $16.99.

    15. A jar of ear cleaner wipes to gently lift goop and gunk and prevent ear infections as well as wax buildup.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My coonhound always seems to have smelly itchy ears. I'm hoping to use these as maintenance rather than having the vet charge every other month. The wipes smell nice, and make cleaning the gunk easy. They are really saturated, which I'm sure helps with the cleaning, so I followed up with a paper towel to help dry his ears afterwards. He didn't seem to mind at all, and I haven't seen him shaking his head like before." —Rina

    Get them from Amazon for $10.39 (or Subscribe & Save for $9.87/month).

    16. A pet odor-eliminating candle for stamping out any funky smells coming from your fur baby. This three-wick soy candle smells like *inhales deeply* lemon, ozone, linen, green, floral and light musk. Mmmmm.

    Get it from Pardo Naturals for $35.

    17. An odor-eliminating spray so you can 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
    Amazon

    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 (or Subscribe & Save for $18.97/month).

    18. A plush Snuggle Puppy because your pupperino deserves their own furry companion. It's great for pups who are being crate-trained, plus it produces a heartbeat that anxious pooches may find soothing.

    amazon.com

    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 $39.95 (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!

    The sign, which has little levers you push to green in the a.m. and p.m. when you feed the dog
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I don’t usually bother to review but this was so much nicer than I expected! Larger, well made, WOW! I hate to admit senility. I love my dog. Imagine forgetting if I fed her or not? I don’t want her overfed or overweight. This is the best thing! I stuck it to the top of her food storage. Now no question. A++++ Seriously such better quality and size than I expected!!!" —Suzy

    21. 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
    amazon.com

    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.

    22. A combination of dog treats and cat treats for pet ~paw-rents~ who know that if you buy something for one kid, you gotta get the other one a treat too. Now no one can accuse you of playing favorites!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "We live in Chicago and the winters are brutal on our black lab's paws. The salt and snow were cracking his pads and although our dog wasn't whining or showing any pain, there is no way that a crack in his pad felt good. We put this on his paws once a day and noticed an improvement. We would take him out to play fetch and apply it the second we came back inside while he was still tired and panting so that he wouldn't lick it all off. It worked well enough that we'll buy it again next winter." —Todd Snyder

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    25. A self-cleaning slicker brush that'll remove so much loose hair that you'll wish there was a black market for pet fur. Maybe the hairless cats are paying. Is this the weirdest paragraph I've ever written? Maybe!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This slicker brush retracts so the fur comes off the bristles cleanly and in one easy-to-toss chunk.

    Promising review: "My cat has short hair but a thick undercoat. I have tried other types of brushes and they don't get much hair at all. Now, I KNOW this cat sheds cause when I go to pet him, it's like a puff of hair in the air. I was on Amazon and found this one and thought I'd give it a try and I am SO glad I did! I brush him two to three times a day and I always find a good amount on the brush. I didn't think I would care that it was self cleaning, but it is seriously the best feature about this brush. So easy! He loves how it feels and I love how it works. I do have another cat who doesn't care for it, but she is picky about everything, so oh well! Haha! It is worth a try, cat owners!" —Addo90

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    26. A bacon-flavored wishbone chew toy if you want your pooch to channel their energy into destroying this and not your shoes. The curved shape makes it easy for lil' paws to grip, plus reviewers say it lasts a long time...a really long time.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "As a former vet tech, rescuer, and pup momma, I've come across some chewers that take the cake. Of course, one of my own is the worse of the worst. My monster lab/poodle mix can DESTROY just about anything I buy for him. He snaps the ultra Kongs in half without blinking and will crack even the largest Nylabones within a few minutes. Even toys marketed as indestructible with money back warranties fall to their death in his jaws. That said...HE LOVES THIS BONE and hasn't managed to do much damage to it, which makes it one of the best chew toys I've ever encountered." —CKayy

    Get it from Amazon for $7.96+ (available in four sizes and three flavors).

    27. 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: "I was so excited about the dog car seat buckle as I have been taking her with me for curbside pickups during the pandemic. On some turns or stops she would slide off the seat. She can’t see but likes to stand at times. Will be perfect for keeping her safe. Thank you for making it available and at a great price." —SandraBB

    Promising review: "We LOVE PetPlate! Jade has been a picky eater since we got her at eight weeks. We tried a couple different foods but when we landed on PetPlate we knew it was a WIN! It was the FIRST TIME she was RUNNING to eat and licking her bowl clean at the end, wanting more. Also, our vet let us know that the 💩 doesn’t lie and it solidified after she started eat PetPlate (no lie, it was like within hours so much better haha)! It was and is such a relief knowing Jade is getting all of the nutrients she needs to grow. We stay in touch with customer service to switch around plans for her weight and they’re always so lovely and helpful. AND it's a Black-owned biz!!!! PetPlate wins allll around!" —Jessie B.

    The Furbo
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this item for my girlfriend who is deployed overseas in Bahrain. She loves her dog more than anything so I knew this would be a perfect gift for her. The first night I had the Furbo I was awaken several times in the middle of the night by high pitched squealing and giggling of glee from my gf not being able to contain herself. She was so excited to see him, talk to him and give him treats and OH BOY does she like giving him treats! By the time she gets back from her deployment I am sure he will be overweight and wont be able to run to her when she gets home. Thanks Furbo, your product is awesome and we all love it!" —Alex Batlle

    Get it from Amazon for $133.99 (originally $249).

    30. A snout soother because your pup's snoot is currently the opposite of soft, moisturized, and oh-so boopable. Well, this'll solve the problem!

    amazon.com, 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

    Amazon

    Promising review: "My girls absolutely love it! I have three Himalayan Persian cats and they absolutely love this toy. They spend hours trying to get the string and figure out where it is coming from. I bought rechargeable batteries and we are good to go for hours of play. I thought the string would be too simple. I was thinking of adding feathers or another string but the simple string is actually perfect just the way it is. Definitely worth the money. I do wish it moved a little slower for my girls. They are not as quick as typical house cats but it works nicely the way it is." —Judi Clark
