    ♫I'm so fancy. You already know.♫ —your dog.

    1. A package of pocket treats to disguise their medications because they absolutely refuse to take anything that doesn't taste utterly delicious.

    The pill pocket next to a pill

    Promising review: "My oldest dog is a total butthead about medication. He simply refuses. No amount of bribery will work. Disguise a pill? He has X-Ray vision. He will eat the cheese, peanut butter, cream cheese, etc off the pill and spit it out. Hickory smoke gets him to take his meds about 90 percent of the time without hassling me too much." —TheNutBarnReviews

    Price: $14.98 (available in two sizes)

    2. A paw soothing balm so their paw pads stay silky smooth at all times. Dry, cracked paws are simply ~out~ of the question.

    Before and after of dog paws

    Promising review: "My doggie’s paws were terribly cracked. Literally, the morning after I applied the product, they were significantly better. I keep applying it every night and it’s been 5 days since then and I still see improvement every day." —Guilherme

    Price: $5.95

    3. A pair of clippers to keep their nails short and stout. The sound of their nails clacking against hardwood is just too much for their precious ears.

    Promising review: "My wife is able to clip the dogs nails quickly and effectively with these. Being able to use it single-handed is a nice feature and a must for a dog who does not generally like you putting your paws on his paws." —Aaron S

    Price: $14.95

    4. A plush orthopedic dog bed because anything less than an ergonomic contour mattress that helps cushion pressure points, distribute body weight, and improve air circulation is simply ~not acceptable~.

    Promising review: "She loves it!!!!! My dog loves the contoured edges and is perfect for her hips. I also have a baby crib sheet over it for easy cleaning." —Amazon customer

    Price: $54.99 (available in five sizes)

    5. A two-pack of doorbells so your highness can announce when they have to be relieved. "Mm yes, peasant. I am ready for my tinkle time."

    Promising review: "I was skeptical but within 2-3 days she learned how to use them and frankly now I think she takes advantage of them just to go outside. These amazing bells solved our potty training problems!" —Jill

    Price: $10.99 (available in two styles)

    6. A pair of rechargeable clippers to keep their beautiful locks perfectly coifed and curled every single day. If there is even ONE fur out of place so help them.

    Promising review: "These clippers are SUPER quiet. The dogs never flinched when I turned it on. The attachments are easy to get on and off. I also liked the ability to adjust the clippers on the body of the unit to make very close cuts (without nicking the skin) for the underbelly and rear end area." —TH

    Price: $22.94 (available in four colors)

    7. An adjustable elevated dog bowl because your pup refuses to eat off the floor. Who do you think they are? Simon, the house cat? *scoff*. Don't you want them to eat in a healthy feeding position for ~ultimate~ digestion?

    Promising review: "Maximus loves his new bowl stand he doesn't have to bend to put any aches on his neck it took him a minute to eat & drink he had to sniff it out first but overall we're both happy!" —Dy

    Price: $26.95

    8. A package of deodorizing wipes so you can clean off your doggo after a fun day at the park. We both know they'll whine the whole car ride home if they have a speck of mud on them.

    A person wiping a dog with a dog wipe

    Promising review: "These wipes are about the same size as baby wipes the material is similar as well. Woven synthetic fabric, not flushable but strong and doesn't come apart in your hand during use. The fragrance is very light and pleasant. Not "perfumey" or trying too hard to mask odor. From the first sheet to the last, not too damp or dripping wet." —Toybiz

    Price: $9.35 (available in three sizes and two scents)

    9. A seat cover protector for your car, but really so your fur baby doesn't have to deal with their precious paws touching your car's seats. "Your seats have old coffee stains, Carol. Don't you worry about me." —your dog, definitely.

    Promising review: " I love the non-slip bottom, it is waterproof and protects my car seats from mud, water and fur. The seat belt openings are large enough. This is a great product, high quality and reasonably priced." —Electric

    Price: $33.96 (available in two sizes and four colors)

    10. An automatic water fountain that allows your dog to constantly have fresh running water to drink out of. They've tried that sad, stagnant water bowl once. Never. Again.

    Promising review: "I do notice the dogs are drinking more water and it’s exactly why I purchased this item in the first place. Depending on how much water your pets drink determines how many times you’ll have to refill the tank. I typically refill the water tank once a day but on hotter days I make sure it’s always full." —Monae

    Price: $26.99 (available in two colors)

    11. An airtight food storage container to keep their kibble dry, fresh, and also smelling delicious longer. The second the food get too stale, it's over. Let's make it last a bit longer.

    A container with kibble in it

    Promising review: "I was looking for an airtight container that could hold the 28lb bag of kibble still in the bag. The whole dog journal recommended not to pour kibble out of the original bag because it would expose the kibble to more oxygen than necessary, which causes the food to go stale and lose nutrients faster. This did the trick!" —J. Bass

    Price: $17.94 (available in four sizes)

    12. A foldable pet stair because since you ~refuse~ *eye roll* to carry them onto every surface in the house, this will just have to do.

    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." —Maegan

    Price: $34.95 (available in two sizes)

    13. A detangling brush so you can remove those pesky mats that develop in your dog's fur, and they'll let you know about it. Trust me.

    Promising review: "Great brush. The two heads are perfect for different types of fur and removing anything that gets caught. My dog loves it so much he actually sleeps on it." —Serena Theresa

    Price: $5.47

    14. A pack of male dog diapers because even your elderly pup still has (way too much) dignity and would rather wear this than pee themselves. Honestly, me.

    Promising review: "Our dog wagged his tail and jumped with delight when I put this wrap on him!! He loves how thin and lightweight they are and best of all he has emptied his whole bladder and not a single drop of leakage!! These work so amazingly!!! They even have a Velcro-type closure so if he doesn’t pee in them we can reuse them for several days until he does have an accident." —Becca

    Price: $13.99 (available in three sizes)

    15. A portable dog paw washer that will keep their muddy paws sparkly clean so they can continue being the prissy pup they were born to be.

    Promising review: "I’ve been using this for a few weeks, and I love it. It cleans the salt off my dogs’ paws so easily. When it’s super dirty and the streets are covered in salt, I’ll refresh the water supply. I add a few drops of their doggie shampoo, and it works great." —Sandra

    Price: $12.89 (available in three sizes and six colors)

    16. A pack of dog poop bags with a dispenser to satisfy your dog's favorite pastime: watching you clean up their poop. "Ahh, yes. Clean my poo. Yes, everyone's watching you. You gotta do it." —Baxter, your Boxer.

    Dog poop bags and dispenser

    Promising review: "These are awesome. They are a great size. They rip apart so easily but I have never had an issue with the bags tearing while filled AND there is a convenient arrow that tells you which side is the opening- I APPRECIATE THIS SO MUCH. These will be my go-to poo bags forever." —Reviewrachel

    Price: $12.99 (available in three sizes and four scents)

    17. A deodorizing shampoo that will eliminate any odor they have before they vengefully rub themselves on everything you own for taking too long to clean them.

    Promising review: "This shampoo WORKS. It takes out the worst odors, and leaves her coat soft and shiny." —Taley

    Price: $3.97

    18. A pet hair remover glove because if you're going to bother them with pets, at least be productive about it. *flips floppy ear*

    The glove with fur on it

    Promising review: "Fantastic dog grooming aid! Our older rescue dog isn't too keen on the routine dog brushing stuff but her thick coat really needs the grooming - this dog grooming glove is the exactly right answer. Put the glove on, pet the dog, and all that loose hair comes away leaving her coat feeling so much smoother and softer without causing her to be nervous or upset over a brushing." —DSP

    Price: $7.99

    19. A heated bowl to keep their water from freezing in the wintertime while they frolic in the snow. What did you expect? For them to eat yellow snow? Please.

    The dog bowl in snow

    Promising review: "I got this for my dog to keep her water from freezing this winter. It worked as described, no problems. I like that the cord has the spiral metal around it to deter chewing. My dog chews everything, but she left this alone. It's a good size and kept the water from freezing without making the water hot. Just enough heat there is deter the ice." —Tammy

    Price: $22.99

    20. A waterproof sweater so the second a snowflake falls, you're ready to take them outside without any pushback.

    Promising review: "It's very cute and looks and feels high quality. I love that there is a notch to attach his leash through to his harness. It's also nice that it's reversible and velcros in multiple areas so it's easy to get on and off." —Lindsay D.

    Price: $19.99 (available in sizes XXS-3XL and five colors)

    21. An LED rechargeable collar because they want to be SEEN, and will do everything for that attention. Oh, it's dark out? No problem. HERE I AM.

    A dog wearing an LED collar

    Promising review: "Before I used to fear losing track of my dog in the dark, now I can see him outside from such a distance. I wondered at first if the collar light would bother him. He didn't seem to mind it all! Very nice product. Totally worth every penny!!! I love that it's rechargeable!" —Kerhow86

    Price: $17.99 (available in S-XL and six colors)

    22. A pair of dog goggles to keep their precious eyeballs protected from the wind (and debris) while they stare out the window and contemplate how amazing they really are. Life's ruff when you're high-maintenance.

    Promising review: "My girlfriend’s dog is always sticking his head out the car door! She loves that he loves it but was concerned that he would get something in his eye. No more! Got this as a surprise gift for her and she loves it. Look at the photo I attached. Now her good boi will be styling and profiling out the window all day long." —James H

    Price: $11.99

    23. A container of eyewash pads for those pups who constantly get those nasty looking eye boogers on their fur. Royalty should always look the part.

    Promising review: " I use this to keep her eyes clean from debris. She loves to run around and get dirty, so I like to use it after she is done playing. It definitely works, I see all the dirt it removes from her eye area. She doesn't seem to mind it and it doesn't irritate her eyes. The pads are thin but it doesn't bother me because I just need a quick swipe and it seems to do the trick." —JBShopper

    Price: $9.69 (available in three sizes)

    24. A dog feeding reminder to make sure your doggo queen hasn't tried to trick you into more food. "Let me eat Kibble" —Puprie Antoinette.

    Person holding the reminder tool with a slot for every day of the week

    Promising review: "Awesome product! There are four of us that were working together to feed the dogs. It simplified everything because I no longer have to text to see if anyone had fed them every morning. Now I just to see if it's green and if not I feed them and indicate it, we all love it so much!" —Toni Deegan

    Price: $9.95

    25. A portable water bottle because did you actually expect them to drink out of a...*gag* lake? or a ...*barf* river? Please. Only filtered water, thanks.

    Promising review: "This water bottle is truly a godsend! I cannot imagine using any other travel water bottle for my pups! It is slim, fits perfectly in a bottle slot in my travel bag; it is lightweight and has a loop to put around my wrist when I walk with my pups. It is extremely convenient on car rides, when my pup is thirsty and needs a quick pick-me-up! I especially love the fact that it sucks the water back in, so that I am not wasting unused water." —Lv4nmls

    Price: $18.99 (available in two sizes and two colors)

    26. A pack of can covers to protect their wet food from drying out and basically, according to your dog, becoming completely inedible.

    The lid cover on a can

    Promising review: "My dogs get just a spoonful of canned food as a "topping" on their twice-daily meals; this means I go through one can a day, and need to cover the half-empty can between meals. The dual ridge on these rubber covers makes it possible to use these on two different sizes of can. These covers seal better than others I had in the past---no escaping dog food smell in the fridge." —Legogirl

    Price: $1.29 (available in three quantities)

    27. A pint of ice cream mix you can make by just adding water and freezing. AKA the perfect treat after a long day of queenliness.

    Promising review: "Having a dog that is a picky eater it is very difficult to get him something that he likes. In the past, I've made him a doggie peanut butter cake for his birthday but he did not even touch it. This time he took one lick and he was hooked! The instructions are very easy and simple to follow I would definitely purchase more!" —Carlos

    Price: $8.99
