    Promising review: "My dog is THAT dog. The one who shakes if you even say her name. The one who has a mini panic attack when you get home. The one who tries to constantly lick your face. However, as soon as I put this on her the shaking stopped and she just appears to be so relaxed. I really like this product!" β€”Kristin

    Price: $29.99+ (available in sizes 2XS-2XL)

    2. A lick mat to keep them occupied and focused on eating delicious smothered peanut butter than dealing with their stress. This is also how I take care of my own anxiety.

    Promising review: "My dog gets very anxious sometimes especially during thunderstorms. I put some cottage cheese on this baby and my dog lost all anxiety. I'm so happy because it breaks my hurt when he is anxious with thunder." β€”Jessie Ronning

    3. A Furhaven lounger with an attached blanket because who doesn't want to cozy up in a blanket on an orthopedic bed? Yeah, that's what I thought.

    Promising review: "My girl is a bit of a bed snob. I have tried three other beds before this one. She loves this one. She has anxiety with storms. She now curls up on the soft fabric and looks very relaxed!" β€”Melissa J.

    Price: $47.99 (available in three colors)

    4. A dog camera that allows you to speak to your pup whenever you see them get just a little bit uneasy because you're not around. You can even throw them some treats!

    Promising review: "My dog started exhibiting destructive behavior in my absence about a month ago. This product was recommended to me by the behavior staff at Tufts. I discovered that it happens within the first five minutes of leaving. All I have to do is talk to her and occasionally toss a treat and she goes and relaxes for the duration of my absence! No longer do I have to 'prepare the house' in order to leave for a bit!" β€”Colonial Tire

    Price: $167

    5. A window hammock so Mr. Mittens has a place to lounge on that is elevated *and* has an awesome view of the yard where you keep your bird feeder. Who needs Netflix when you have squirrels, am I right?

    Promising review: "We bought this for my cat for Christmas and it's his new favorite thing in the world since. He fell in love with it immediately when we installed it! He can relax in the kitchen with us now while we cook dinner or eat. He can also birdwatch to his heart's desires. My cat is also 11 lb and we've never had to worry about the suction cups coming off, ever! It's extremely easy to install also" β€”Miko

    Price: $19.99

    6. A fluffy bed to give Mark Ruff-alo a place where they can have their doggy dreams of running around in an endless yard while treats rain from the sky. I mean, I assume this is what they dream.

    7. Calming soft chews that have Thiamine, C3 (Colostrum Calming Complex) and L-Theanine to produce a relaxed and calm state. Who knew your little fuzz balls could be so chill?

    Promising review: "My son has a large dog who is terrified of thunder. She really freaks out. So it was decided to give them a trial run. Because of her size, she required three chew bites. In less than 10 minutes, she was a different dog. She was calm and relaxed." β€”Turtlewoman

    Price: $34.95 (available in sizes S-XL and eight colors)

    8. An electric heating pad because you'd be surprised at how much your pets love heat. My cat, Norman, absolutely loves his heated pad and lays on it every day, even in the summer.

    Promising review: "He absolutely loves it! He's very comfortable and relaxed now, and sleeps very deeply on his bagel bed, with his doggie heating pad tucked under his favorite little blankie. It's simple to use, heats up quickly, and I appreciate the automatic shut off." β€”MaryLeeM

    Price: $26.99+ (available in sizes M-XL)

    9. A Kong to keep them occupied (and not nervous!) when you have to leave the house to run some errands. Smear some peanut butter and treats inside and they'll be trying to lick it out for hours.

    Promising review: "We bought the Kong in order to give her something to focus on when we leave, and it seems to be working. We just shove milkbone and some peanut butter in there and toss it on the porch before we head out the door. It keeps her occupied for quite a while, and has helped her to be more relaxed when we leave her alone. Great product!" β€”Nikki P.

    Price: $7.99+ (available in sizes S-2XL)

    10. A calming spray you spritz on areas where your cat likes to hang the most and you'll quickly see how much more relaxed they are when they're near that spot.

    Promising review: "All three of my cats have drastically reduced anxiety. It won't fix all your problems or change the entire temperament of a cat, but at least in my house all three cats are much more relaxed, they sleep better, they are friendlier towards me, and the non-recognition aggression from one visiting the vet is going away much faster with the spray than without." β€”Langley Renee

    Price: $3.59

    11. A pet odor eliminator spray that not only works as a waterless shampoo *and* a deodorant spray, but the lavender scent keeps them relaxed while feeling super fresh.

    Promising review: "I love this great-smelling lavender spray for my Schnauzer! It also helps to calm his anxiety about getting a bath or going for a car ride. I am more than pleased with this convenient spray to make Bandit’s life a little easier to handle!" β€”Cheryl P. Hancock

    Price: $9.95

    12. A crate so they have their own little place to call their own. Basically, they're going to put up a sign that says "no humanz allowed" and "Jane Pawsten's Chill Spot."

    Promising review: "I wasn't expecting the kennel to be quite so large, even though the dimensions are in the description. It turns out that it is a great little house for him to be in while I am at school in the mornings. He has plenty of room to lay stretched out on his back with his arms and feet at full extension, just like he likes. He also seems to be much more relaxed now." β€”BCC

    Price: $22.99+ (available in seven sizes and two styles)

    13. Calming treats because they'll keep your furry baby relaxed and composed during stressful situations, such as visits to the vet, long road trips, or watching RuPaul's Drag Race. Who's going to win?!

    14. A fleece blanket so Olivia Chewton John can stop stealing your blanket when you two are cuddling on the couch.

    Promising review: "It’s good quality and so soft!! He loves to be on his bed, or on the sofa, with the blanket on him. When he gets scared or he needs to calm down we wrap him in the blanket and he calms down. He falls asleep sometimes. He feels comfortable, cozy and safe." β€”Lys

    Price: $9.99+ (available in six sizes and nine colors)

    15. A puppy plush that Queen Elizabark will immediately make their favorite toy in the house.

    Promising review: "I bought this starter kit in order to help her feel at ease in my apartment while I'm there and while I'm also away at work. I plugged this in last night and one hour later, my kitty was more relaxed! She sat on my lap, stopped swishing her tail (a clear sign of agitation/anxiety), and she just went back to her sweet old self." β€”Minoware

    Price: $29.99

    17. Stress relief treats that contain safe natural ingredients with added vitamins and minerals to help relieve Mary Puppins' fear of storms, fireworks, owner separation, grooming, and even travel.

    Promising review: We tried these for July 4th, to get our pups through the fireworks. WORKED LIKE A CHARM!! Even during the really loud booms, both dogs were calm and slept through the worst of it." β€”Elizabeth R.

    Price: $12.50

    Promising review: "We love this bed! I got the jumbo size for my 52-pound golden doodle and it is perfect for him to stretch out on. I find him in it all the time both relaxing and playing with toys. It unzips and makes it very easy to be washed once a week. I love that feature because he does get peanut butter all over it often lol." β€”Brittany Fedus

    Price: $53.99 (available in five sizes and three colors)

    20. A calming collar that has lavender and chamomile essential oils to help relieve tension and anxiety. It'll let Katy Hairy relax and eliminate any aggression. Best part? It's safe for long-term use and hypoallergenic!

    Promising review: "It has made my cat's move to the city so much better. A day or two into being in my new apartment he is a snug bug and very relaxed. He is still himself though when it comes to playtime and bringing his favorite toys over to me and meowing until I have no choice but to play with him." β€”Karly S.

    Price: $12.99 (available in three colors)

    21. A heated cat cave because if you own a feline friend, you know how much they absolutely love to have a little space they can call their own to relax far away from all the noise. The "noise" being that pesky pup who just doesn't leave them alone. Ugh.

    Promising review: "This bed is super-cool! We had already ordered heated beds for both of our cats but one of the cats was just too fluffy to feel comfortable in the smaller bed. So, this one looked perfect for him and it is! The bean shape gives our big boy lots of room to relax and be able to enjoy a warm cozy nap." β€”LeeAnn D.

    Price: $62.99 (available in three colors and two styles)
