de-shedding tool so you can get all that extra, heavy fur off your lab and off your furniture. But let's be real, that'll never happen.
Promising review: "I bought this for my yellow lab who sheds ALL year-round and cannot ever seem to brush him and get it all out. I almost bought the long hairbrush for him because the longest part on his back is two inches but I ended up going with the short hair one and it works great!! Shocking how much hair it even gets off of his actual legs!" — Kelly S.
Price: $33.95 (available in sizes S–L and in four styles)
water bottle that acts as a bowl so your lab can drink water easily while adventuring wherever you go.
Promising review: "Our lab/ridgeback tripod has to work a bit harder than her four-legged counterparts. Because of that, she needs a drink fairly often and this bottle is absolutely perfect. Being a bit finicky in general we were worried she may not like it. Not the case though. She took to it right away. We love it and so does Minka." — JRob
Price: $15.97+ (available in two sizes and four colors)
slow feeder dog bowl for when your lab just can't seem to slow down. This bowl can help prevent bloating and indigestion for even the fastest eaters.
Promising review: "We have a hyper-eater who finishes his food in under 20 seconds. Learned about these type of bowls to help slow my black lab down. He was confused at first but after some encouragement and tapping the bowl he was just fine. Took him at least four minutes to eat his food. That's an eternity compared to before." — Rachael D.
Price: $11.99+ (available in four sizes and six styles)
no-pull pet harness because no one likes a pup who pulls on their leash (even when it looks cute)! Not today, Spot!
Promising review: "I have tried every type of harness I could get my hands on. Gentle lead, easy walk, thunder leash, pinch collars ... nothing worked until now! I like that we can clip on the front and back. When it's clipped to the front it really helps my one-year-old. Lab not to pull! The handle on the back is great if she wants to chase bunnies so I can just hang right onto it." — SMaca
Price: $16.98 (available in sizes S–XL and nine colors)
nail trimmer that will safely (and pretty quietly) grind your lab's nails down so he can continue frolicking without leaving scratches on your wood floors.
Promising review: "I have a now-elderly lab with very, very hard black toenails that are almost impossible to cut. Since she just barely cooperates with my trimming her nails, a grinder that is quiet, quick, and easily manipulated is essential, and this one checks all three of those boxes. This grinder is much quieter and smaller than my previous tool. Was able to get all four paws done in about ten minutes and with enough battery remaining to do the other dog without having to recharge in between." — J. Terpstra
Price: $29.99 (available in two colors)
ball launcher to get any pent-up energy out of your lab. This gadget will launch a ball further than your arms can throw, giving your pup more distance to run (and you time to catch your breath).
Promising review: " Boy howdy can you launch a ball with this thing!!! We have a 6-month-old black lab puppy and he absolutely loves chasing tennis balls! Getting my dog his daily exercise has never been easier! It is so nice that the regular size tennis balls work with this and they don't require their own special size ball. Such a simple toy that produces endless fun for both dog and owner!" — Blue Eyes
Price: $9.92+ (available in two sizes)
car seat cover so your lab can be the coziest on all of your road trips. It is 100% waterproof and nonslip so here's to adventuring comfortably!
Promising review: " I used this product for travel. It was a nine-hour trip and I wanted my chocolate lab to be comfy instead of just riding in the back seat. It was easy to install. Normally he’s pretty antsy in the back seat and can’t stand straight. But he was laying down, sitting down, moving around, & looking out the windows. It was a perfect fit for him. Very easy to take down, fold, roll up & store under-neath the backseat!! Loved it." — Whitney Touchet
Price: $33.99+ (available in three colors)
A container of
ear wipes, because labs are known to develop mites and infections in their ears. These wipes will help keep that at bay and your pup happy.
Promising review: "I have labs with floppy ears that are breeding grounds for mites and yeast infections. Their ears need to be cleaned regularly, but too much moisture is a bad thing. I feel like these are the perfect dampness, are not drying, and are thin so I can get in there deep enough to clean without introducing more liquid. I use weekly and highly recommend." — Lorijay
orthopedic sofa so your lab can have their own little designated bed to lounge in near you. The L-shaped design even promotes a safe and secure feeling for them.
Promising review: "I am SO glad I ordered this bed. My lab is about 100 lbs and this bed is PERFECT. There is room to spare and he really likes using the pillow. The bed is 4 inches thick and the pillow area is 7 inches thick. The stone gray color is beautiful. Very nice-looking bed! My dog moves the bed around the house depending on where I am. It is super light and I LOVE it." — Busy Mom
Price: $29.99+ (available in six sizes, four styles, and 15 colors)
A pack of
Pill Pockets dog treats that you can use to hide all of your lab's medications and they'll be none the wiser.
Promising review: "Our lab loves the chicken and hickory smoke. We use it to give her daily allergy med and she doesn't hesitate with it at all. She gets excited when we get the bag out. Holds a long pill great. I use to work at a vet's office, and we used these there as well" — Amazon customer
Price: $17.99 (or Subscribe & Save for $14.23/month, available in three sizes)
A two-pack of
dog doorbells so you can train your pup to tell you when they want to go outside. It'll probably be ringing all day.
Promising review: " These bells have been great for potty training our lab. We showed her how to ring the bell, let her out each time we rang the bell, and gave her a treat when she rang the bell. After a while, we only gave her a treat when she pooped, and now going outside is the reward for ringing the bell. No accidents since we started using them." — JustAGirl
dog kennel to keep your lab safe and secure when you're not home.
Promising review: "I have a 15-week-old lab, about 20 pounds at the moment. This 36-inch kennel is perfect. It is much larger than she needs right now but it has a divider so it can grow with her. It is very sturdy and the doors double lock. The locks are easy to use but require you to flip it up and then slide, so it would be pretty hard for a dog to jiggle it open." — Rebecca L.
Price: $43.99+ (available in six sizes and two styles)
portable dog paw washer because no one wants dirty paws in their home, right? The bristles on the edge help clean up any dirt and debris off their paws, which can also help prevent infections.
Promising review: "It’s a furniture- and floor-saver. I have two large labs. The Mudbuster saves my back and a lot of time. I'm happy I have the large with two dogs because I fill it with warm soapy water once for all eight paws then lightly towel dry. Start out by treat training and lots of praise and before you know it they will be sitting in anticipation of their foot wash." — Sonya Lynn Malloy
Price: $12.44 (available in sizes S–L and in six colors)
interactive puzzle game for when you can't take your dog outside, but you can tell they are feeling a bit bored.
Promising review: "Best purchase I’ve ever made on a dog toy. My 11-year-old, 75-pound lab mix loves it. He can solve it within a couple of minutes but it’s very stimulating to him. Even when it’s empty he will go over and play with it. This product is durable. My dog is rough on it and it’s held up well. I use tiny trainer treats which allows me to give him the puzzle multiple times a day since he’s a large dog." — Ami
Promising review: "It is perfect for my labs- They can both lay down with some room to spare. The sides are high enough to make deep enough water to play, bob for toys, and lay down in, yet short enough for stubby English lab legs. I barely had it on the ground before they jumped in. Since the areas the pool is set up in has a lot of dirt, the pool water needs to be changed frequently. The drain on the bottom side makes it super easy to do so." — Precise Disarray
Price: $27.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL)
waterproof pet blanket, because it's time for your lab to stop sleeping on your favorite throws and just have one of their own.
Promising review: "Bought this for my lab puppy she loves her new blanket and so does my older dog so I bought another. It's very soft and easy to clean. I love it too!" — Mary Higley
Price: $21.43+ (available in two sizes and six colors)
life vest so you can have peace of mind when your lab plays in any body of water, which is probably their favorite thing to do.
Promising review: "I am beyond pleased with the quality of this life jacket for Willow. Willow is a 65-pound yellow lab mix. She is 8-years-old and physically fit. I ordered a size large for her and it fits perfectly. This size chart is right-on!!! I love the harness handles on top. I have always used a harness with handles and it makes me more comfortable knowing I can grab her if she ever goes into swift or deep water. " — Anitak
Price: $19.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and three colors)
salmon oil supplement that supports joint function, immune, and heart health for your pup.
Promising review: "Our lab has severe allergies itching, scratching and ear and eye infections every spring. Have spent a lot of money on shots and medications. It has worked miracles for our lab. Her eyes have cleared up, shedding is minimal and little to no scratching. And I give it to all our dogs and they love it!" — Pd

dog leash with a padded handle so your wrists can get a break from those times your labs gets really excited about seeing a squirrel in the distance. It happens.
Promising review: " I'm pleased to say that this is one of the best leashes I've ever used! I'm currently loose-leash training a 6-month-old lab who has never been trained to walk on a leash, or even wear a collar/harness. Paired with her starter harness, this leash has been incredibly effective to gently, but firmly redirect her to walk alongside me, and has just the right amount of tension. It also gives her enough slack to let her explore without having the leash pulled taut constantly. It is comfortable to hold, and after a while of successfully walking her beside me I forget it's on my wrist." — Candice R.
Price: $8.99+ (available in seven colors)
A two pack of
licking mats you can spread creamy peanut butter on and keep your lab entertained for at least a few minutes (maybe).
Promising review: "We had been using Kongs for our lab mix but they were had to clean and she quickly ate the PB inside. The licking pads take longer for our girl to eat PB off them. We have washed in the dishwasher and they did great." — Susie
Price: $13.95 (available in two colors)
pet cot because a raised dog bed actually helps your pup stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter by taking it off the floor. We just want happy labs.
Promising review: "One word, durable. Our 90-pound lab loves this as she gets hot on normal dog beds. The big one is strong enough for both of our dogs to crawl up on! I even put these in their dog crates for comfort with no issues. Definitely washable! Just take it apart and throw the cloth portion in the washer! We wash ours weekly with no issues." — David P. Brown
travel bag for all of the adventures you're definitely going to go on with your lab. This pack has everything you need to bring all your pup's essentials with you with ease.
Promising review: "Great bag for traveling. It held two weeks' worth of food and loved the collapsible dishes for food and water. Some of our vacation we were in hotels and cabins and it was so easy to carry in and have all my lab's items and food in one bag." — Kim
wishbone-shaped chew toy for those aggressive chewers who can rip through basically anything. We dare them to rip through this bad boy.
Promising review: "My 45-pound lab mix is a big-time chewer, shredder, and destroyer of dog toys. This is one of the few toys that lasts at least a month or two and that he enjoys chewing on a regular basis. I have ordered a second one to replace the one he already chewed down pretty well. I also like that he was not able to break off pieces. It wears out in such a way that it helps clean your dog's teeth." — Urooj
Price: $9.65+ (available in four sizes and three flavors)
food storage container to keep your lab's dry food fresh for way longer than usual. Fresh food = happy pup (and happy wallet).
Promising review: "I have two large black labs who get easily bored with their dry food. I now own three of these containers and they work wonderfully in keeping the dry food fresh. The lids are hinged in such a way that they stay open without flopping. I just sit the bag of food inside the container, open the bag, and then close the lid. They come with a scoop that is marked so you can easily see how much you're scooping out." — Marsha Queen of Amazon
Price: $24.49+ (available in 10 colors)
Promising review: "Wow! I have a 10.5-year-old lab. He gets very anxious with loud noises and now at night he paces and can't sleep. For reference, he weighs approximately 85 pounds. I give him two at night and within 10 minutes, he is just so calm and so relaxed!! We had fireworks go off the past two nights (normally, he would have jumped on my bed and climbed on top of me shaking). With these, he didn't even move!! He is sleeping so well, seems so well-rested, and doing amazing!!! Highly highly recommend!! I will never be without!!!" — Petiteirishlass
