    1. A grooming rake to make brushing your furry friend as easy as possible. Since the rake has rotating teeth, it will gently remove loose fur from their undercoat without causing any snags.,

    Promising review: "The FURminator Dog Rake is amazing! I was surprised by how well it works on my German shepherd's coat. He's been shedding bad since it has been getting hot and there's been fur all over the floor. This rake removed a great deal of fur. It's also very quick and easy to remove the fur from the rake. The best part is that my dog actually loves getting brushed by it! While he's never disliked being brushed, he usually only tolerates it for a couple minutes before giving me the 'Let me go' look. With the rake, he sits still patiently and even leans into it. I believe it feels to him like he's getting a good scratching. On the other hand, my grouchy old obese cat hates it. But she hates most things. Yet, it works amazing on her as well, especially in the areas on her coat that tends to mat up. The rake came with a black cap to place over the bristles when not in use. I like it as it protects it and keeps it clean for storage." —Nurse Bex

    Price: $9.71 (available in two models)

    2. A jumbo cat litter scooper that makes picking up after your pet a seamless process. It'll truly become a lifesaver for you.


    Promising review: "Legendary. I have been cleaning cat boxes for many decades. The shape, material, and size of holes is much more powerful in dealing with litter chores than any I have ever encountered. The poo sticks less to this thing, and comes off easier than from any other. The texture necessitates the use of a fairly brittle material, but the modest price and effective dynamic of the scoop make it beyond excellent — superior. I use a Calphalon utensil to scrape it before rinsing it, so that virtually no litter goes into the plumbing. It puzzles me as to why this product is not a lot better known. The only way to improve it would be to render it in stainless steel." —BubbleHoTep

    Price: $2.57+ (available in four colors).

    3. A food storage container for preventing your kitchen (and, let's be honest, everything you own) from smelling like dog food. Its airtight design locks in freshness *and* it's super accessible for feeding your pet on the go.

    What's included: A stackable12-quart storage container, a 33-quart storage container with wheels, and a food scoop.

    Promising review: "These are really neat containers. I have two. I keep dog food in one and horse cookies in another. I don't eat any of that so I can't speak to the freshness but it must be sealed fairly well because when I open them the cookies still have that strong apple scent and the dog food smells like it always does. It's convenient to have the small container on top so that the dog treats and dog food are all in one place and neatly tucked away. Great product!" —Mother of Unicorns

    Price: $24.99+ (available in seven colors)

    4. A pH-balanced paw butter to help moisturize dry, cracked paws and noses so your pet can feel pampered and keep looking incredibly cute. Plus, it's completely safe if your pet decides to eat it.,

    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

    Price: $7.99

    5. A wood kennel cover for making your dog's crate less of an eyesore. It's a great spot to store some cute trinkets related to your pet — like treats, leashes, etc.


    Promising review: "The makers custom-made the top for my dog's crate, and it fits perfectly. The wood is thick and sturdy (unfortunately I have far too many things on top of it already!) and the natural finish I chose is subtle and pretty. I highly recommend this product." —henpen

    Price: $134.00+ (customize size at checkout and choose from 10 finishes)

    6. An interactive dog toy to keep your pup busy and occupied while you work. Your furry friend will spend hours playing with the toy trying to find the squirrels.,

    Promising review: "My son's Yorkie-poo 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. 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

    Price: $12.99+ (available in four sizes)

    7. A travel dog bed for giving your pet a cozy place to sleep. Aside from being super lightweight, it's also portable and easy to clean. Seriously, what else does it need?

    Promising review: "These mats continue to impress me. One of my dogs is temporarily incontinent after surgery and these mats have been a lifesaver. I put a towel underneath and when the puppy piddle pad gets pushed out of the way this mat keeps the spill from reaching the floor, or at worst catches the majority of it. I've been washing them once to twice a day for nearly a week and they look as good as new. Wash on the casual cycle, warm or hot, and dry on low." —Scott Satellite

    Price: $28.95

    8. A slow-feeding bowl to prevent your pup from eating too quickly. By slowing down the process, they get the proper time to digest *and* avoid an upset belly — a double win.,

    Promising review: "I have two pitbulls and one of them has been a food inhaler since he was a puppy. I got the spiral one last year and I decided to get another one to change it up a bit. He is still really fast eater but it has slowed him down from finishing a cup of food in less than a minute to about three minutes. I got the small size and it holds about one and a half cups of dry dog food." —Jen

    Price: $15.99 (available in four sizes and six colors)

    9. A no-spill dog travel bowl that's effective, simple, and easy to use. It's perfect for car rides and won't make a mess.

    The reviewer's dog with the blue no-spill dog travel bowl

    Promising review: "I love this thing. I was definitely skeptical but it is sort of miraculous how the water stays in the bowl. (It is even a little tricky to dump the water on purpose because of the design). I needed a bowl so my pup could have water at all times during a cross country road trip. He has kidney failure, so needs extra water than a normal dog might and he is always thirsty. This was the perfect option, it doesn't slide around, and didn't spill. He has even stepped on it and it barely splashed. Perfect. Totally recommend. Bonus points: it's flexible so even though it doesn't collapse like other bowls, it is still easily packed away."—Siena

    Price: $11.92+ (available in two colors)

    10. A seatbelt tether because there's nothing more important than keeping your pup safe. It's easy to install and will keep your BFF secure in the back seat.

    The seatbelt tether in orange hooked up to the seatbelt holder of a car

    Promising review: "Was in a car accident yesterday on I-4 outside of Tampa. All cars were stopped and this guy was speeding and did not stop. He hit us and we flew into the median. Luckily, everyone was wearing a seatbelt, including our dog. We have this seatbelt for my 30-pound puppy. I can honestly say this saved her from getting hurt. Can't imagine what would have happened if she wasn't wearing it. I can honestly say this product works since I just went through a car wreck with my dog strapped in. My dog is completely fine today. Highly recommend this product. Have two of these for both cars. Remember to always buckle up your pet!" —Melissa

    Price: $12.95 (available in two colors and two sizes)

    11. A pet hair remover to keep your furniture free of fur. It allows you to pick up pet hair from hard to reach places and is super simple to use.

    Reviewer pulling fur out of the removal tool with five-star caption "was hesitant but works great!"

    Promising review: "Where has this been all my crazy 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

    Price: $24.95

    12. A super cozy pet bed that's finished with a "space blanket" thermal fabric that reflects your pet's natural body heat to create a warmer sleep surface — aka a warm and snuggly oasis — for your pet.

    Price: $27.99

    13. A portable pet gate to keep your pets out of certain areas in your house. Since it's portable, you can easily move it from room to room and its extendable design allows you to move it into different doorways.

    A reviewer's white puppy gate being with the extendable feature being used

    Promising review: "I just got a pug, but before I brought him home, I ordered two of these baby gates. Both came before the day I went to get him, even though one was a bit late. Whew! These are perfect for the kind of puppy I have now, a wee little puggy, named Xerxes! Easy to use and and absolutely essential to keep puppy contained to smaller portions of my house. The price was perfect too! I do recommend these gates to anyone with a smaller breed of dog, adult as well as puppy!" —Eantha L. Haagen

    Price: $19.99

    14. A box of Febreze-scented kitty litter that smells so good, you and your cat will wonder how you ever lived without it. Bonus: the litter clumps when soiled so you can easily clean it out.

    a reviewer's cat sitting in front of the box of cat litter

    Promising review: "I am so pleased with this litter in every way! I adopted two shelter kittens who would not bury their business and I read it was because they didn't like the litter. After I got this litter, they do what cats are supposed to do!! And the fragrance is not overpowering." —JoAnn Pinkerton

    Price: $9.54 (available in three styles)

    15. A Waterpik pet wand attachment because there is no reason to spend money on a groomer when you can do it yourself! The arched wand contours around your pet's body so that you don't have to keep moving the nozzle, spraying water everywhere in the process., Amazon

    Promising review: "Owners of long haired/thick coated breeds: This is what you've been looking for. I've waited over 20 years for this and have used everything from custom heads to kitchen wash heads. The water flow from this even at low pressure (40 psi) is excellent, adjustment on handle are well thought out, and this WILL get right through a thick undercoat." —Animal Doctor

    Price: $36.97 (available in two sizes)

    16. A bone-shaped lick pad that'll keep your dog calm and happy while you groom or bathe them. Just spread peanut butter onto it and your pup will be distracted. These prove bath time *doesn't* have to be a challenge!

    Promising review: "Perfect for teaching our puppy to be focused during baths, hair drying, and trimming. Turned hatred and fear into tolerance." —Stephanie

    Price: $10.99

    17. A four-month supply of flea treatments to keep your kitty protected from critters trying to take shelter within their coat. It includes pre-measured application tubes that once applied, guarantee protection for up to 30 days.

    a reviewer's cat standing behind the flea treatment packaging

    Promising review: "Advantage II has always been my favorite flea product for cats. It works the fastest and is the most reliable in terms of long term flea prevention. I used it just recently on 15 cats and could not find a single flea after a month of using this product at the animal shelter I worked at. This is my product of choice for my own cats as well. I have never had any negative reactions to this product and it seems to last the entire month for me. Fleas that bite the cat are swiftly dealt with via this product. The application was simple and the cost was very fair for this product in relation to other stores such as Petco or Farm and Home. I recommend this product over Frontline which seems to be decreasing in potency as a veterinary technician and cat behaviorist." –Siamic

    Price: $43.98 (available in four sizes)

    18. A pack of Arm & Hammer pet waste bags that will easily fit into your pocket so you *never* have to be that person who forgot the poo bags at home ever again. Plus, it's fresh scent will prevent you from smelling it the entire time you're carrying it. One reviewer even mentions that it's great for cleaning out the cat's litter box, too.


    Promising review: "My dog poops probably four times daily when we go on walks. It's as stinky as it gets. All the bags I've used before still let some of the scent permeate through the bag, but not these. They're very durable, which is greater for larger pets and larger doo-doos. These are a bit transparent, but that doesn't bother me because obviously dogs poop and someone needs to pick it up (unless you're one of THOSE people). But if you don't like transparency in your bags, just a heads up. The main part I love is the SCENT! It smells like Arm & Hammer and I don't smell any of the poop from inside the bag, which is miraculous. I will buy these and only these over and over again." —Daria

    Price: $8.99 (available in three sizes and four styles)

    19. A pooper scooper to prevent you from hurting your back while you bend down to pick up poo. Thankfully, this handy scooper can be lined with a bag inside of it so all you have to do is tie the bag and discard it — no bending down or touching the ickiness with your bagged hand!

    Person scooping poop

    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 of 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

    Price: $18.62

    20. A collapsible dog bowl so you're always prepared to hydrate your pup — especially on sweltering hot days. You can easily fill it up with the bottle you use or a fountain!

    a dog sitting near the collapsible bowl

    Promising review: "I recently adopted a 3-year-old 80-pound male labradoodle who was used to running 5 miles every morning with his owner, so I'm doing my best to keep up the exercise since he needs it to stay healthy and happy. We run or bike every single morning. I had been pouring water out of my Camelpak for him to drink but it was wasting water and was not a very efficient way to do things so I ordered this bowl and I love it!! It collapses down to practically nothing (I store it under the elastic bands on the front of my Camelbak) but can hold a LOT of water! It's great for dogs with big mouths/heads to drink out of, and when they're done, it collapses right back and dries quickly! I love that it has an elastic loop on it as well so if I don't feel like carrying a bag myself I could easily attach it to the back on my dog's harness or to my bike using a clip. This is the perfect portable water bowl for any activity with your pet and at a GREAT price!" —Kate Mahoney

    Price: $5.58

    21. A car seat cover because there is really no reason why your car should get all scratched up or covered in fur. It'll protect your seats *and* give you a worry-free way to bring your pup in the car.

    a reviewer's dog on the seat cover

    Promising review: "I’m a professional dog trainer and frequently have four-legged clients riding around with me and I was more than surprised by how much damage my oversized 1-year-old boy could do to my seats as well!! My seat and cargo covers are the greatest purchases I’ve made for my vehicle hands-down! They look great, the sand matches my Durango’s tan interior well, and they actually get a more polished look after each washing, which is so rare! This standard bench seat cover fits perfectly in my 2011 Dodge Durango Express, and I LOVE that I can easily access my kid’s car seat anchors! Even when food pouches are thrown across the backseat, I can easily wet wipe up the mess and they withstand regular washing (they air dry quickly) like a champ! They are mostly water-resistant and I can easily wipe up spills if I’m fast enough, but if the dog is wet, they do eventually take on the moisture and allow the seat to get wet. So, I put a Soggy Doggy mat on the seat which does the trick. I will never buy or recommend anything but Kurgo covers to my clients!" –HSowle

    Price: $45.71 (available in seven colors, two sizes, and two styles)

    22. A stain and odor eliminator that'll prevent your pet from ever having an accident in the same area. Plus, since it's made with natural enzymatic bacteria, it will activate on contact and immediately eliminate odors *and* stains.


    Promising review: "OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG! I can't tell you the last time I had the time to write a review, but for this? I made time. I promise this isn't one of those phony glowing reviews from the company itself... (When is Amazon finally going to catch on to that?) So, we foster cats and kittens. We keep them in a room with Berber carpets. Our most recent group of kittens pooped, peed, and puked all over the place... it was maddening. Every time I cleaned one spot, two more would appear. Extremely stubborn stains. These kittens had no manners and were total slobs. The adult cat scooted a huge brown stripe down the center of the room. Usually, my trusty can of Spot Shot works on pet stains. This time, it didn't. So, I thought I'd bring out the big guns. I have a steam carpet cleaner with an attachment and 'professional' pet stain removal soap. That didn't work either! So, for weeks I had a bunch of brown spots on the carpets. I saw the great reviews on Amazon for this, and ordered it. I received it today. And holy cow, a second after spraying, EVERY SINGLE STAIN DISAPPEARED!!! EVEN OLD STAINS! I was walking around with a rag waiting to scrub out the stains, after the spray soaked in... but couldn't find ONE!! This stuff is a miracle!!! Anyway, you will not regret buying this stuff! It's awesome!" –Momofcinco

    Price: $19.96 (available in two sizes)

    23. A set of pet stairs to make cuddle and travel time as easy as can be. These stairs will help your fur baby get up onto your bed or couch as well as into your car. Plus, it has foldable legs for easy storing.,

    Promising review: "My dog loves them! She Learned how to use them very quick! I have a very high bed and these were a perfect fit. Super easy to assemble. No more fears of my dog leaping from my bed and hurting herself, and no more crying at night from her wanting to get up on the bed." —Meagan Gagnier

    Price: $59.95 (available in four colors and two sizes)

    24. A pair of waterproof booties because protecting your pups paws at all costs is crucial. These are perfect for the freezing cold snow, slippery sidewalks, or the ultra-hot pavement.

    reviewer's dog wearing the black booties

    Promising review: "Great for dogs with arthritis. My 15-year-old-dog is wearing the boots on his back legs for traction. His back legs are just not strong enough and he struggles on slick floors. In the few hours that he has been wearing them... he is walking everywhere. He has walked more in a few hours than he has in months. He doesn't struggle to get up or stand on the floors." —Jaclyn Yetmar

    Price: $28.99 (available in seven sizes and four colors)

    25. A candle specifically designed to help get rid of pet odors. The scents smell sooooo good — you may just forget you have a pet.

    a reviewer burning the candle

    Promising review: "These candles are fantastic! They smell great, and do a great job of eliminating any odors in your house, not only those from pets. They do work best if you burn them for one to two hours at a time, but will get rid of the smells of wet dog, fecal smells, urine odors, and I’ve even found them useful for cooking odors. I’ve had three candles now (the first arrived shattered, and was replaced; the next three arrived in perfect condition). I highly recommend these candles. I purchased the Vanilla Creme Brûlée scent. I often get headaches from powerful scents, but have never gotten one from these lovely candles!" —Heather

    Price: $22.95 (available in twenty six scents and two sizes)

    26. An adjustable and comfortable Puppia harness to keep your pet from pulling while walking.

    Ang via Amazon / Via, Hannah Loewentheil/BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "Got this for my 25-pound mini Schnauzer and it adjusts to fit much more close to the body than other harnesses I've tried. The other ones would tend to get loose if he got stuck behind me on the walk and I was pulling the leash from the front. They would tend to sag, but this one doesn’t. What I also particularly like is the cushioned wrap just below the neck so it doesn’t feel like he is choking when he has to be restrained when darting for squirrels." —ASF

    Price: $14.30 (available in sixteen colors and seven sizes)

    27. A pack of Greenies natural dog treats for eliminating bad pet breath and keeping up your pet's oral hygiene.

    A reviewer's dog sitting and waiting for their Greenie's dental treat

    Promising review: "We rescued a dog and love everything about her... except her breath. We did not want to discourage her from giving us kisses, but her breath was disgusting. Thankfully, she loved the first Greenie dental treat we gave her, and we noticed an improvement in her breath after just a few days. Now we give her one treat every day at lunchtime and signed up for a subscription." —Duck363

    Price: $33.99 (available in eight sizes)

    28. An affordable pet camera so you can keep an eye on your furry friend when you aren't home and even talk to them remotely. It's great way to see if they're getting into trouble. You'll looooveee it, trust me!

    Promising review: "Stop your search and buy this NOW! I had been waiting a while to buy a camera for my home/pet because I didn't want to spend a ton of money on something that did do what I needed it to. This camera is the real deal. I can't believe it's so affordable. Easy install. Connects to our Wi-Fi. I bought some micro SD chips for memory saving. You can hear and talk pretty clearly through it and even when you're far away the app connectivity is still great. I bought two and they cover pretty much my whole apartment. The pup and I have never felt safer!" —Jay
