1. A cute leash attachment treat and poop bag dispenser so they can discreetly manage their pup's dietary needs

A dog holds the treatpod in his mouth. Text labels the waste bag dispenser and the treat holder.

Promising review: "I was looking for a compact poop bag holder and something to hold treats while on walks. I stumbled upon this, and it’s the perfect solution. Plus, it doesn’t add any extra weight to the leash. I would highly recommend. This is a must-have pet product." —Taylor

Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in three colors).

2. An adjustable ramp to help their height-challenged or elderly pup get onto the couch or bed so they don't have to keep playing "up or down?" while they try to work.

Promising review: "This ramp is well-made and very sturdy! I love that you can adjust the height to so many versatile levels/heights. I have never found a ramp previously that was able to do so! You can fit it to any bed or couch. The tracking has ridges and felt, so the dogs' paws will not slip when going up or down. With most other ramps, there is a slippage and this one doesn’t have that problem. I love that you can fold it up and store if necessary. They really care about quality craftsmanship!! Highly recommend!" —Amber

Get it from Amazon for $149.99.

3. A doggy placemat made of soft microfibers that absorb water, so it can easily double as a bed or as a protective surface to place their pet's food and water bowls on.

Promising review: "Really keeps water off the floor. My dog, like many, is a very sloppy drinker. And my cat adores it. Had to open the second mat as she decided, even with water bowl on it, that it was a perfect spot for her to nap. Everyone is quite happy." —cathy

Get it from Chewy $22.50 (available in three colors)

4. A pair of White Paw squeak toys because even their golden retriever needs a relaxing treat at the end of a stressful week. Cheers!

Promising review: "My dog is a soft-toy destroyer. She usually tears them apart in five minutes, stuffing everywhere. But for some reason she has not gotten these apart yet! The fabric seems a little more durable but I think it also helps that there are no hanging pieces like a tail/ears, etc. She loves to toss them around. The squeaker isn't in an area she bites all the time so it's not overly annoying. It was super cute to post a picture of her with it and me with my own White Claw :). They were a little pricey but I had to get them!" —Stacey Laake

Get them from Amazon for $22.95.

5. A soy wax pet odor exterminating candles with a calming and lovely fresh lavender scent that'll make their home feel like it's their home (and not just their pooch's) again.

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 1-2 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." —Heather

Get it from Amazon for $21.95+ (also available in three pack sizes).

6. A car seat for their dog whose car excitement might lead to wiggling all over the place. This car seat keeps their pet safe and still, so they can just focus on the open road ahead.

Promising review: "Awesome quality and extremely straightforward setup! My dog hopped in the basket as soon as I set it up. He dislikes my car and hates the movement, so this keeps him comfortably in place so he can enjoy the view he gets with the booster. Overall, it's a good way to help your dog enjoy the cool breeze of your daily drives. Not only does it keep them safe, it also keeps you safe because they're in one place and not moving around while you're driving. In simpler terms, it avoids safety hazards and provides comfort for your dog at a bargain!" —Oscar Garcia

Get it from Amazon for $17.88+ (available in two sizes and five colors and patterns).

7. A luxe harness kit complete with a leash, harness, and poop bag carrier. They'll be the envy of the dog park with this stylish and durable get-up!

Wild Ones

Promising review: "I’m so glad I purchased this harness walk kit. The harness is made of quality, soft and flexible material. I needed something very gentle for my pug, and this is perfect. It is also very adjustable and can grow with your dog. The leash is great as well. The material is perfect, too. Since it is made of flex poly, it is easy to clean and won’t tear if your pet chews on their leash" —Emily H.

Get it from Wild Ones for $98 (originally $118; available in three harness sizes, two leash sizes, and in eight colors).

8. A cute and compact dog paw cleaner to quickly and easily rid their pet's paws of mud, dirt, and sand. All they have to do is fill it up with water, pop a paw in a few times, and let the soft silicone bristles inside get to work! No more muck tracking through their home.

Chewy, WatsonsMom/Chewy

Promising review: "One of the best purchases I've made for my dog. I've always washed his paws after he's been outside but this paw cleaner does a much better job than the wet washcloth I was using. His paws stay white and fluffy all the time now, as if he just had a full bath. It also ended his paw licking so it must be doing a thorough job." —Tricia

Get it from Chewy $12.89+ (originally $19.99; available in three sizes and colors)

9. A plush hide-a-squirrel puzzle that'll keep their pet entertained for hours if they need some self-care time. All they need to do is fill the tree trunk with squeaky squirrels, and their little Indiana Jones will have a ~ball~ getting them all!

Promising review: "Our puppy lives to destroy. The name 'Piranha' would be more suitable for our puppy 'Molly.' This is a dog that eats the outside of our house. She eats rocks, the underbelly of chairs, wooden porches...nothing is safe. She is the Godzilla of small towns made of dog toys. Every toy we have gotten her lays shredded in indistinguishable ruins with the exception of this one little Squirrel House. We made bets on how long it would last. Fifteen seconds was the favorite choice.

She doesn't waste time searching out the squirrels in the house. She just shakes the house, and the squirrels go flying. This is her favorite toy. She carries the squirrels around like they're her babies. Her favorite pull toy is the squirrel house, and it's held up better than any toy actually made to be a pulI toy. This is the Samsonite of all dog toys. I'd write more but I just saw her go through the doggie door with my recipe book." —In the Boonies

Get it from Amazon for $10.39+ (available in four sizes and six styles).

10. A waterproof doggy sleeping bag they can take with them on their hiking and camping travels.

Promising review: "We had backpacked seven miles when we were suddenly met with a snowstorm. My pup stayed super warm and loved the little pillowy end to this. Definitely recommend!" —Ashlyn

Get it from Amazon for $24.39.

11. A portable water bowl bottle with detachable treat dispenser so their four-legged running partner can hydrate on mile seven, too.

Promising review: "It's easy to use with one hand and is awesome for travel and simple walks. I did not have to fumble for treats while on the road or refill the water too often; it had everything I needed. Gizmo loved it and recognized that it was water for him almost immediately and would ask for it. Overall, I'm super pleased. Best water bottle for him I’ve found yet." —Terri

Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in four colors).

12. A leash attachment poop bag holder that's as cute as it is functional. This bag has enough space to hold any other small essentials they might need to take with them on their walks.

reviewer image of their zippypaws leash bag

Promising review: "This works great! It fits a standard size roll of bags, and it's easy to pull just one bag through the opening. There's just enough room to store something else in there like a house/car key when running/walking. It's versatile enough to fit on both a flat and rope leash (I use both) and doesn't bounce around or move/slide when running. It's exactly what I wanted and for less than half of what the competitors charge. Very happy!" —Hannah Hapner

Get it from Amazon for $6.49+ (available in five colors).

13. A self-warming memory foam dog bed made of a durable linen that'll not only softly cradle their pet to sleep but will also look good while doing it.

Promising review: "Our puppy loves this bed! I actually just bought a second one to have on hand when I stick the first one in the washer. It washes well, and I dry it on medium heat. Super soft, comfortable and very durable!" —MomTo2

Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in two sizes and colors).

14. An adjustable apron covered with colorfully animated pups, so no one will question whether they love pups more than they love baking. This long-lasting apron is made with a double layer of fabric and has two pockets: one for their spatula and the other for dog treats.

The MissOwl adjustable apron

Promising review: "It is so cute! I really needed a waterproof apron for washing dishes. It has two layers, one is waterproof plastic and the other is a linen-like fabric, so it absorbs any water spillage before it gets a chance to drop to your feet or floor." —Sijia Zhao

Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 19 patterns).

15. A set of waterproof *and* reflective dog booties that'll protect their pup's paws from perilous pavement. Say that five times fast!

reviewer image of a dog wearing the qumy dog booties

Promising review: "Awesome booties! These babies stay on. My dog runs, jumps and does everything she normally does (except scratch). We live in northwest Chicago, and we walk a couple of miles a day. Our neighborhood has no sidewalks. When it sleets or snows, road salt is an issue. As most dogs do, she likes to off-road it, so it's in the snow, on the street, repeat. These keep her paws from getting packed up with snow and salt. Initially, it's kind of a hassle getting them on, but it gets easier. If you buy them, put them on your dog in the house and let figure them out. And strap 'em down good." —earshplitten

Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in seven sizes and three colors).

16. A customized box of toys and treats from BarkBox so you don't have to worry about getting them that *one* perfect gift; they'll get a whole pack of perfect gifts!

Promising reviews: "Lily loves her BarkBox. She is so excited when it comes and can't wait for me to open it. The treats are very high quality and if your baby has allergies they help with that too." —Machelle & Lily

"Great selection of toys for her to chew and chase after. She loves all the treats and has been learning a variety of tricks. She gets excited every time her special box is delivered." —Debbie & Shadow

Get it from BarkBox for $23+.

17. A personalized fanny pack with their dog's breed and name that'll be perfect for storing treats while on walks or just making sure everyone knows who their favorite boy is while grocery shopping.

Promising review: "Absolutely love it, so I have ordered one for my sister, too!!" —Annabel White

Get it from Flamingo And Cactus on Etsy for $22.20 (available in 17 dog breeds and 11 text colors).

18. An adorable fanny pack rope toy almost as cute as the one their owner wears. This plush squeak toy will keep their pet fashionably employed.


Promising review: "My dog loves it...and so do I! It's such a cute toy! I love the ropes. This is great for tug-of-war!" —Happy

Get it from Chewy for $6.98.

19. A bobbing treat dispenser that'll wobble treats to their hound so they can finally have a free hand to treat themself!,

Promising review: "We have a golden retriever who can solve most food puzzles in less than five minutes. He LOVES this bobble toy and it takes him at least 20 minutes to get all the food out (set to maximum difficulty). We can leave it with him because he won’t destroy it, but we can’t leave it with our border collie, as she immediately starts destroying the hard plastic lid once the food runs out. The toy is hefty and the base is a nice, soft rubber (good for many safe nose boops). Basically, I love this toy. It’s great to have something to stimulate our golden’s brain and play with when he’s feeling extra hyper." —Allie

Get it from Amazon for $14.49+ (available in two sizes).

20. A pretty pineapple dog bed if their dog happens to live under the sea (even if they're not absorbent, yellow, or porous) and deserves a cozy home that suggests as much.

Promising review: "This bed was exactly what we were looking for. The small was the perfect size for my 9-lb Chihuahua with plenty of room. It’s sturdy and doesn’t tip over. Highly recommend!" —Perfect

Get it from Chewy for $21.59 (originally $39.99; available in two sizes).

21. A funny mug with a very serious dog reading about how to catch their tail. Perhaps your friend can relate?

The "how to catch your tail" dog day mug

Get it from Shop BuzzFeed for $16.95 (originally $18.99).

22. A durable doggy chew toy that doubles as a toothbrush because they deserve fresh kisses from their pet...not smelly slobbers.

Promising review: "Thank you for my dog’s new favorite toy! He LOVES this thing!! As soon as we wake up in the morning, it's the first thing he runs for!! It is absolutely the perfect size for my Border Collie/Aussie mix. At this point, it almost looks like he is TRYING to tear it up, but it still looks great! If you have a super-chewer like me, you NEED to add this to your collection!" —Tina A

Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in two styles).

23. A wooden doghouse with a view if their pooch is Juliet waiting for their Romeo.

Promising review: "I used to have a giant box with holes cut out as a 'clubhouse' for my dog. He loved going in there, but the top started to sag and he was ripping the cardboard. I bought this for him, and it turned out to be perfect!" —TwoPupsOneHouse

Get it from Chewy for $86.23 (originally $90.89).

24. A silicone lick mat because you've seen them try to give Lucky a bath *without* a yummy distraction, and they're the one that ends up looking like a wet dog at the end.

Promising review: "My pup hates the water; bath time was usually a nightmare. It was a two person job, and was impossible to do without getting myself and the whole bathroom soaked. Luckily for me, he LOVES peanut butter so this was the perfect solution. It keeps him completely distracted while I wet him down, shampoo, rinse, and dry him off. So simple yet so effective and it manages to stay in place even throughout all the licking." —Maxc

Get it from Chewy for $10.95.

25. A durable rubber football chew toy that'll take their dog's natural athleticism to NFL levels (National Fetch Leage, of course)!,

Promising review: "Durable rubber doy toy that my dog loves. It squeaks when hit with a paw and takes crazy bounces when you throw it. Lots of fun." —Kimra

Get it from Amazon for $4.70+ (available in two sizes).

26. A set of dog treat cookie cutters and molds that also comes with 100 gift bags, so they can share their fresh-baked goodies with others.


Promising review: "I was very pleased with the quantity and quality of these cookie cutters and the size of the gift bags. The packaging was also very well done. A must-have for doggy treat baking." —Mom's Cellar Door

Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in three set sizes).

27. An orange dog safety vest with rechargeable LED lights and reflective strips, so they can safely go on late night walks and runs without worrying about not being seen by drivers and bikers.

Promising review: "This is great! It's very easy to put on, and you can adjust the tightness around the neck and belly. My shepherd mix stayed dry under the coat in heavy rain. The light is appropriately bright, and you can select constant, slow blink, or fast blink. The battery lasts a good long time, and you can turn everything on and off without having to remove the battery from the pouch. You just click it through the material. This comes with a USB charging cable and a simple zippered storage pouch." —Adam

Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in five sizes).

28. A warm, fleece-lined dog hoodie because their pooch might be a good boy, but he's got a bad boy streak just waiting to ~ruff~ it out.

Promising review: "These little jackets are so cute for my pups. Time will tell how they hold up, but for now these were a great purchase to keep them warm for the fall going into the winter." —J Monique

Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in seven sizes and six colors).

29. A canine-shaped door draft stopper if they're less-than-new home has drafty doors and windows. This weighted pup might just help them save on heating bills this winter!

the beige dog door draft stopper

Promising review: "It's even better than expected! It's well-made and substantial with weights at both ends and the middle to keep it securely in place. The material is thick and everything is sewn evenly so it looks (and is) cute and high quality. I purchased it as a gift and the recipient LOVES it." —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $22.79+ (available in six styles).

30. An elegant personalized leather dog collar that'll make you look like you put a lot of thought into this gift when really all you needed to know was their dog's name. You're welcome., Amazon

Promising review: "These collars are well-made and look great on my Poundcake. I can't stand the sound of jingling name tags on two dogs at night! This was a great answer to address the noisy tags. They look great on both my dogs, too. They fit exactly as described in the size chart." —Aileneshops

Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in five sizes and 12 colors).

31. A duvet cover set with a delightful doggy design that'll keep them (very warm) company at night.

"So cute and cozy. It makes me happy on cold winter nights!" —Janet

Get it from Wayfair for $46.99+ (originally $999.99; available in sizes full-Cal king).

32. A giant tennis ball because Wimble-dog is around the corner, and they *need* to practice!,

Promising review: "Jeffrey, our golden retriever, is CRAZY about this ball. He is a huge fan of all toys, yet this is still the biggest hit thus far. He learned to nudge it instead of biting attempts in less than five minutes. He had a serious ball with it. Pun intended. We bought it originally just to use it as decoration for his birthday sweets table, but OMG does it make an AMAZINGLY fun toy (pictured above, left)!" —Thanh Broflovski

Get it from Amazon for $13.98.

33. A slow feeder dog bowl to help prevent their friend from experiencing any bloating or regurgitation. This meal-lengthening feeder is an interactive game for their dog and a stress-reliever for them!

Madi/Chewy, Chihuahuamom/Chewy

Promising review: "For the past few years, I have gotten to know my dog as one that eats quite quickly. Shaking her bowl and the sound of it being filled up makes her really excited, and she kind of attacks the food when I give it to her. Not in a bad way, of course, just trying to eat as fast as possible. However, I’ve noticed that in doing so, she always got very gassy, bloated, had hiccups, and burped A LOT. So, I thought it was time to try one of these bowls out! At first, she was skeptical but after some training and positive reinforcement, she has no problem eating out of this bowl! I have definitely seen a change in her eating habits by eating slower and taking her time. She has less bloat and doesn’t burp in my face as much after a meal haha! I love this bowl; highly recommend :)" —Nina

Get it from Chewy for $10+ (available in two sizes).

34. A fluffy AirPods case cover that'll still allow for charging without having to remove their AirPods. Plus, look at how cute that good boy is!

Get it from Amazon on for $9.99 (available in 34 styles).

35. A tug-of-war toy with suction cups they'll be able to stick to the floor or wall so their little tail-wagger can stay occupied for hours.,

Promising review: "We bought this for our 7-month-old labradoodle and he absolutely loves it. He is a big fan of tug of war so this toy is great to just leave on the ground and let him have at it. It certainly helps distract and burn his puppy energy. You can hide treats in it as well which was a bonus. This also comes with two sticky pads for extra suction. I give 5 stars all around!!" —P. Bom

Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available with one or two suction cups).

36. A soft squid doll with a squeaker inside will be perfect for their wild pup who loves to shake their toys around. Now they'll have several tentacles to whip back and forth!

Dog playing with squid shaped squeaker toy with fuzzy tentacles

Promising review: "This is my dog’s favorite toy! He’s had it for almost three months now and the squeaker still works. He plays with it every night. It's difficult to find toys my bulldog doesn’t destroy. He even naps with it." —Ampa

Get it from Target for $11.99.

37. A geometric chew toy set made of natural rubber and organic cotton, so they don't have to worry about any unsafe materials in their dog's toys. Plus, each toy in this bundle has a reinforced core, so they also won't have to worry about any of these breaking during play time.

Wild One

Get all three from Wild One for $58 (originally $64; available in four colors).

38. A reflective nylon braided leash because their brave Balto is on a mission and has no time to consider traffic at night., Amazon

Promising review: "I spent a lot of time searching for a new dog leash for my active dog. Her current leash lasted four years but is starting to tear. I found this one, and I fell in love with the colors, design, and materials used. I have been using it for about two weeks now and it is great! The handle loop is soft and comfortable to hold, even when she is pulling! The snap swivel hook is also easy to use and opens and closes nicely. When my other dog's leash is ready to be replaced, I will most likely buy another one of these!" —IndyJill

Get it from Amazon for $10.59+ (available in five sizes and nine colors).

39. A rope toy made of recycled cotton, so you'll not only be bringing peace into their dog's life but also to the planet.
