    1. A pack of 60 natural chicken Pill Pockets so you can give your dog a treat and their medicine at the same time, mess-free.

    Promising review: "Our two dogs take a total of about eight pills per day, and I don't know what we'd do without Pill Pockets. They think they're getting a treat and don't even realize they're really getting medicine! One tip if you're new to them - you may want to buy the capsule size, not the tablet size. Most of our dogs' pills are pretty small, so we break the capsule-sized pockets in half, or even in thirds or quarters for the really small pills, to really maximize the value. We also sometimes break them into small pieces to use for treats. The tablet-sized pockets are significantly smaller and usually only good for one pill each." —CaliGirl89

    Price: $7.98+ (available in three sizes)

    2. A treat tote that'll clip on to your pants and let you quickly and easily reward your pup. The drawstring closure offers easy access to treats, and it'll seal to keep up to one cup of treats fresh. You can even use it for small toys or waste bags.

    Promising review: "These are the perfect size to hold treats. Not too deep that you have to stick your whole hand in. Just right to just grab a treat with my fingers. I can't imagine using more treats than this bag holds in one training session. A dog can only focus so long you know. We always use the clip on the back which holds tight to all kinds of clothing and has never come loose even with lots of bending. It hangs down from the waistline well so a shirt doesn't interfere. The bag also has a belt loop if you wear belts. Our family has several of these bags now and they are the only ones we continue to use. The only drawback is you can't choose your color when ordering." —Cherilyn

    Price: $8.99

    3. A FURminator grooming rake to remove loose hair and prevent tangles and mats in dense fur. The rotating metal teeth will help you care for your pet's undercoat, and the nonslip handle gives you control. Plus, it's guaranteed to work or you get your money back!

    Reviewer's image with the undercoat after grooming

    Promising review: "I wish I could give this thing 7 stars, but 5 will have to do. I was able to pull entire sheets of undercoat out of our husky without disturbing the topcoat. I've never had anything work so well. It's even easier to keep the fur pile together. The fur stays clumped, instead of getting spread out and floating around like with the blade style FURminator. This thing really digs the loose stuff out so much faster and easier." —pvfjr

    Price: $8.98

    4. A swivel bin and rake pooper scooper so you can clean up after your pup with ease. It's got a durable, rotating bin and a plastic rake to make pickups more comfortable. It's even got hooks on both sides to secure odor control bags! When you're not using, just snap together and hang.

    Includes scented bags.

    Promising review: "I cannot praise this enough. Oh my dog, where has this been? I deal with a lot of poop and have been through every pooper scooper imaginable. This is fantastic. I have tried it both with the bags that it came with and with grocery bags, they all work great. The bag doesn't budge once you clip it in properly, and no poop stuck to the rake. Once I was done scooping, I could take the bag off, tie it off to keep the flies out, and throw it away, all without handling any poop. Just boom, bag sealed up and in the trash and everything except the rake stayed exceptionally clean. Not only that, the rake stores neatly inside the scoop. Such a perfect design." —E.M.

    Price: $18.79

    5. An airtight pet food storage container for locking moisture out to keep food fresher. It's BPA-free so you don't have to worry about whether the food is safe for your pet to eat, and it's stackable so it doesn't take up a ton of space.

    Reviewer's photo showing three white stacked airtight containers

    Promising review: "After a few months of use there is ZERO smell of dog food in my closet!! I am totally amazed and so happy with this purchase. I just bought a new bag of food and put it in there and the sealed bag smells more than the food in the storage container! We have the container positioned with the angled side going UP, which makes it unable to be used with another unit stacked on top, so if you want to stack and need the spout pointing DOWN, a whole bag of food may not fit. After having for a while, sometimes the rubber ring on the top comes off, but I just pop it right back on, no problem. I am so pleased with this purchase and highly recommend it to all pet owners!" —Tyler

    Price: $34

    6. A travel bed that'll keep your canine comfortable on the road. It's a great pick for the floor or a kennel. Made of soft, water-resistant poly-suede, it's ideal for pets of all sizes.

    Reviewer's photo of their dog laying on the gray and blue bed

    Machine washable.

    Promising review: "It's a lot thicker and more plush than I expected... kind of like a thick comforter. It's got different material on each side, one like the inside of a sleeping bag and one like the outside. (The shinier side will be good for summer when the weather heats up.) It's also machine washable, which is a big deal for dog gear since it gets dirty so quick, and it's got a loop sewn in so you can hang it to dry if you want. I wouldn't use it as an everyday bed in my house but for travel it's pretty terrific. My dog's on the medium to large side and this bed is just the right size for her. It comes with a little stuff sack, and it's easy to get the bed back into it; just fold the bed in half the long way, and then roll it like a sleeping bag, then slide the bag on over the end. The sack also has a flap on top to keep dust and dirt out, and a nice drawstring to shut it pretty tight, so I can throw it in my trunk with the rest of my dog gear and not worry about it too much. The bed has enough padding that the stuffed sack is a little bulky... I'm planning to keep using it in training classes and just keep it in my car for anytime we might need it. I'm sure it'll get a lot of use." —M.K.

    Price: $28.93

    7. A Fun Feeder Slo Bowl so your dog won't scarf their food too fast. It'll naturally improve their digestion and prevent bloating. Works great with dry or wet foods.

    Reviewer's photo of their dog eating out of the purple slo bowl

    Promising review: "These dog bowls are amazing! This version has larger spaces so it's easier for my dog to get the food than in the spiral and the flower shape one but for a dog with a large snout or bit tongue this is still effective. My smaller dog (45 lbs) doesn't get much of a challenge with this shape, but the larger one does. My dogs had gotten in to a competitive eating thing all of a sudden and the younger (4-year-old) and much bigger one (80-lb ridgeback) started eating so fast she vomited every meal. I bought these to force her to slow down. I got three different shapes so I could switch them out to keep eating a challenge which is good mental stimulation for dogs. This completely solved the easing too fast problem. Both dogs adapted easily to using them. These were well worth the money. These bowls do make them drool more when eating but I just throw them in the dishwasher regularly and that takes care of the cleaning." —Rachel

    Price: $8.95+ (available in four sizes and seven styles)

    8. A portable outdoor shower for keeping your pets squeaky clean with any plastic soda bottle filled with water. It's a great choice for camping, hiking or beach trips.

    Dishwasher safe.

    Promising review: "We have three Aussies who find mud in drought. Works great on any bottle we tried it with. A gallon milk jug is my favorite. Also terrific for muddy or overheated children!" —J. W. Ramsden

    Price: $12.95

    9. A no-spill travel bowl to always keep your pet hydrated. This food-grade silicone dripless bowl will do just that without the mess. The tapered lid reduces splashing and the unique wedge design will keep it flat on the car seat.

    Promising review: "I can leave it in the car, it freezes and doesn't effect the bowl which is easy to dump and refill. The angle is amazing. I live on rough dirt roads, I put a little over an inch of water in the bowl and not once has it sloshed out. She is thrilled each morning as I break the ice out. The ice is her new toy. She knew it was in there somewhere! Delivery was fast, the bowl squishes down if needed and pops right back up. Easy to clean and wipe dry. Whoever designed this definitely spends time in the car with their dog, paid close attention to the need and created the perfect car dog dish! This was a good intro to Kurgo and I look forward to checking out other products of theirs. Thanks for taking the time to do it right!" —Tika

    Price: $12.99 (available in two colors)

    10. An Easy Walk Deluxe Dog Harness that'll minimize your dog's pulling by resting on their chest instead of their throat. It's light and breathable while still having quality and durability.

    A reviewer's photo of their golden retriever wearing the gray and blue harness

    Promising review: "Ten steps with the new harness and I was blown away by its effectiveness! My 80-lb dog and 45-lb dog suddenly became effortless to walk, after years of dreading the tug of war which normally takes place on a walk. I’m not kidding, this design works. And it puts my dogs into a different 'mode' while we walk, making it easier to implement new commands, like stop, left, and right. They have become much more obedient, all because of this harness!" —JudahTzu

    Price: $19.95 (available in four colors and sizes)

    11. A safe and long-lasting Dogwood chewable stick for a chew toy that mimics the texture and taste of real wood. It'll help your pup if they're teething, or they just like to chew something up. Since it's made from a blend of natural wood and synthetic materials, it won't splinter or cause oral and intestinal damage.

    Reviewer's photo of their dog with the chewable stick

    Promising review: "It's way harder than I expected from some of the reviews, and this is a Medium size... I also purchased a Large size, wanting to test both of them, figuring he'd chew through the medium one in two sessions!! but it has lasted for over two weeks now, with daily or nightly enthusiastic grinding... and he's slowly eroded away about half of it so far. His other favorites have been real beef leg bones & split elk antlers.... not much else has lasted long enough to warrant being a repeat purchase. This has so far proven to be safe, & affordable, & has definitely earned 5 stars with both me and the chewing maniac we lovingly call our Golden Destroyer!!! We will definitely have these on hand for as long as they keep proving to be a safe and satisfying favorite!!" —Countryfied

    Price: $6.17+ (available in four sizes and eight styles)

    12. A seatbelt tether to keep your dog safe in the car. It's got steel hardware and it's strong and durable. It'll click right into the slot and you can switch from car to car as needed. Extend it if your dog needs more room.

    Not compatible with Volvo and not recommended for Ford trucks.

    Promising review: "Bought this for road trips and highway driving to keep my dog safe. Hadn't planned on using it for short trips around town. However, we were unfortunately T-boned by a car going very fast through a stop sign. My dog was in the backseat, buckled into the middle buckle. We were hit very hard. Had she not been buckled in, she would've gone flying across the backseat and hit the passenger door. She could've been seriously physically hurt and mentally traumatized. Instead, she was 100% fine and just as excited to go on the next car ride as ever. I will never take my dog in the car without one again. Ever. This product should be safety-tested. It would make it a must-have item for all dog owners." —Amazon reviewer

    Price: $9.99+ (available in two colors and three styles)

    13. A stuffing-free squeaky toy that'll offer safe and squeaky fun without any messy stuffing. The chambers maintain their shape and squeak even if they get punctured. It's a perfect choice for smaller dogs!

    Reviewer's photo of their dog playing with the stuffed monkey

    Promising review: "My dog loves this toy. Her teeth don't get stuck in it and it's small enough but not too small for a 20-lb dog. She's also blind and because it comes in two sections inside, it rattles a bit and she can follow the sound with her ears. She loves to tear toys up too, but the monkey is tough. It's also soft on the outside and doesn't hurt her mouth. The squeaker in each side (one high-pitched, one lower for headache days) stays in each side, and this is one of the longest lasting toys she has had. All around Excellent little toy!! I would recommend it to anyone :-)." —The_zimmers

    Price: $7.99

    14. A no-spill and detachable double bowl with automatic water dispenser to keep your pets refreshed, without the mess. The water dispenser offers stable control of the water level and can give your pet two to three days of water. The floating disk keeps the water clean by keeping your pet's mouth hair dry, and the edge strips prevent food and water from leaking out.

    Promising review: "Great for my cats and my 8-month-old pomsky who is a messy eater and LOVES to flip her water bowls. This 2-in-1 water and food feeder is PERFECT size for her food and the attached gravity water bottle is great for making sure she never runs out of water. Best part is: she can’t flip it upside down, and the floating water piece deters her from putting her paws in her drinking water. 10/10 would recommend for cats or dogs!" —hk

    Price: $14.59

    15. An organic paw soother for a gentle treatment to protect your puppy's paws against indoor and outdoor conditions. All natural and organic, this balm uses a variety of butters and oils to heal rough, chapped and dry dog paw pads. Each stick is handcrafted with no artificial preservatives or harmful ingredients.

    Promising review: "My Doberman had one pad in particular that was painfully cracked. He limped constantly. Took him to vet to make sure it was not a knee, shoulder, foot etc. issue. I tried another product and it did only so so. WELL let me tell you after three days of this stuff NO LIMP. One week later NO CRACK. SOLD. Just ordered the set with the protector too. And, by the way, I have many troubles with cracked dry feet. All the dermatologist and foot doctor visits with not much relief. WELL here goes I thought why not, if it works for my big boy why not me. And you guessed it, after using this nightly for two weeks my feet are CURED! Figure that one out!!" —D Sal

    Price: $17.95

    16. An easy-close pet gate with small pet door that'll let small pets through while keeping others out. This durable steel gate can expand to fit stairways, hallways and doorways, and it's gentle on walls.

    Dog sits behind the white pet gate

    Includes a 4-inch wide extension kit.

    Promising review: "The whole point of the gate was to let the dog and our cats get used to each other with face to face interaction, and the cats could either take shelter in the laundry room or exit the little pet door to the rest of the house. That little door is a genius idea. It is big enough for our 25-lb. Maine Coon cat to get through, and small enough that our big dog can't put more than his nose through it, which then gets clawed by annoyed kitties. Even the dimmest dog will figure that out real quick." —Wilhelmina

    Price: $49.99

    17. A cat tree with hammock bed so your cat will have a place to jump, rest and play. The durable fleece and paper rope will ensure years of use.

    Tools and instructions included.

    Promising review: " My new kitten absolutely loves this tree! She's constantly running up and down it trying to catch the little feather toy. It also makes an excellent perch for her to look out the window (although the tree itself is quite small, so we had to put it up on a small side table to reach). It's very sturdy and doesn't wobble, and the assembly was easy. All the tools and screws are included so you don't need to break out the toolbox. Overall I am very satisfied with my purchase and would recommend this for anyone with kittens or small cats." —T

    Price: $35.99

    18. An interactive snuffle mat because why not play with your food? It'll encourage your dog's natural foraging skills, and because they have to sniff out the food, using the snuffle mat for 10 minutes is equivalent to running for an hour.

    Promising review: "We fastened it down by using the cord that is attached and packaging taping the thing to the ground. Both dogs really enjoy this and pant afterwards, like it was actually exercise! And they seem so content and calm after using it. It’s fun for everyone!" —MK

    Price: $17.99

    19. A Bissell pet vacuum for all the hair that's made its way into your carpet. It'll remove dirt and hair with its motorized brush tool, and its large bin is easy to empty so you can get rid of pet hair easily. The triple level filtration improves cleaning performance.

    A reviewer's image showing their car seats before and after they've been vacuumed

    Promising review: "WOW!! This is one fabulous vacuum! I use it daily to combat the cat litter and hair and dirt and dust bunnies and random filth that 3 cats and 4 kids bring into my house in unbelievable quantities. But mostly the cat litter. And this little vacuum rocks! The lithium ion battery has a great life, and will last for two or three 10-12 minute dirt-busting sessions. I am a vacuum snob, and have tried MULTIPLE vacuums. I absolutely LOVE this vacuum. Total epitome of "bang for your buck", and so far, has been able to keep up with the nastiness on my floors. It rocks on hardwood, low pile carpet, normal short-ish length carpet, and tile. I mean, I am nearly in love with this vacuum. Really. Give it a try. I honestly don't think you can go wrong with it." —L. Quick

    Price: $69.99

    20. A cat arch self groomer so your cat can groom, massage and play. The durable bristles will remove excess hair while massaging, and the base gives your cat room to scratch and stretch.

    Reviewer's photo of their cat inside the black grooming arch with a brown base

    Promising review: "This product is NOT like a toilet brush as I thought it looked like, the bristles are soft enough that it wont hurt the little ones, but sturdy enough to provide a good brushing for the cats. Unfortunately my one cat is really unintelligent and started trying to eat the bristles, so this one my have to get put away. The product itself however is well worth the money, well built and provides cats with their own little self-brushing station." —Amazon reviewer

    Price: $18.99

    21. An airline-approved dog travel bag that'll give you ample storage for everything your pup needs. A variety of pockets, containers and collapsible bowls that hold up to 26 cups of food or water collectively. A great choice for long hikes, camping or the dog-sitter's!

    Promising review: "The bag is a great size, plus it's more rectangular/cubed in structure as opposed to a floppy tote bag. This structure holds the two zippered bowls/containers (the two bowls combined are large enough to carry three meals for my German shepherd), towels, and people snacks without crushing everything. The handles are stitched on to the bag well and short enough that it doesn't drag on the ground when you carry it (there's an optional shoulder strap if you don't want to use the hand straps). The collapsible silicone bowls are nice bonus, but I don't use them because my dog thinks they're toys and just paws at them. I'm sure they work great for other dogs though. Overall great purchase!!!" —L. Chun

    Price: $37.99

    22. A dog communication doorbell so you'll be able to communicate with your dog better than ever. You don't need wires or batteries, and it's easy to use for dogs of all sizes. You can pick the bell volume and ring tone that best suits your home and it can be used both indoors and outdoors.

    Reviewer's photo showing their dog ringing the white communication doorbell

    Promising review: "No problems with range or setup, everything worked perfectly out of the box. And it installs in seconds -- plug in the receiver, stick the buttons on either side of the glass on our back door. Done. Dog loves it too. She learned it it minutes: we had previously trained her to boop her snoot on things with the command word 'target' so this was easy. We put a treat on the other side of the door, told her to "target" the button, and, boom she gets it. Finally, she won't have to scratch up the door anymore! I wish we'd had this years ago." —Glade

    Price: $27.99

    23. A pack of two collapsible dog bowls to keep your pup hydrated on the go. Made with high-quality silicone, these durable bowls will last you many trips. Use the carabiners to clip it to your backpack.

    Reviewer's photo showing their dog drinking from the green collapsible bowl

    Promising review: "We have two large GSDs and go on long walks on a regular basis and these workout great for their drinking. They can clip to your shorts and you don't even know they are there they are so lightweight. They open easily to pour water in and a perfect size for them to drink from comfortably. Super easy to clean and take care of. Makes trips to the park or anywhere so easily. Also a great idea if you take your dogs to a dog park, you can have them drink for these instead of the community bowl. Highly recommend!" —WarriorEddieG

    Price: $9.99

    24. A pet first aid kit that'll prepare you for any situation. This 100-piece set is made of a nylon fabric perfect for your outdoor adventures.

    Reviewer's photo of the black and orange first aid kit

    Promising review: "A first aid kit is one of those things we all need but hope we never to have to use. If you have pets this kit is a must-have. I was very impressed by how many items were inside — bandages, a thermometer, scissors — and just about everything you might need in an emergency. There's also a small travel bag so you can take with you. This is an excellent first-aid kit for pets and it's worth the price. I'd recommend it to all pet owners." —Feminist Actress

    Price: $37.99

    25. A UV urine flashlight for finding stains on rugs, carpets and clothes. The UV lights can last 15 years, and it's pocket-sized, meaning you can carry it with you whenever you need it.

    The UV flashlight shows the dog's urine in the bottom photo

    Promising review: "I was skeptical at first, I had no idea that a blacklight would show urine stains but have found all of the urine stains and have treated them. We have been going through the house methodically and treating everywhere our pets have "done their businesses: and hoping to start with a clean slate. It was quite an eye opener to see what we have been living with. If you have pets- you definitely need one of these. This way you can treat the areas where they have been "active" and change their habits. I am hoping we can start our new kittens with a clean slate and keep them in their litter box where they belong. When you shine this light on anyplace that a pet has urinated on it will shine like a beacon." —Sheree

    Price: $12.99

    26. An elevated portable pet house so your pet will always have a cozy shelter. The raised cot offers support and comfort, and the large front opening gives them easy access in and out.

    Dog inside the tan and black elevated pet house

    Promising review: "Sturdy material with plastic lining on the inside. Easy to put together. Held its own during a downpour and some heavy winds. However, I have it under a tarp, so that helped. I don't intend on ever having it just out in the open. It's sturdy but I can see it going downhill if you have it constantly in the sun and the elements. Dries fast once the sun starts to shine. Bonnie, my pit bull terrier loves it, and uses it during the day and at night. She seems quite comfortable. I did add a layer of bedding for her. If you are looking for something temporary, this is the way to go. You can easily lift and move it anywhere. Good for camping and going to the beach as well. I'm in process of buying a permanent home, but this will do nicely during the time being." —The Daughter of a King

    Price: $39.99+ (available in three colors and two sizes)

    27. A rubber rope knot for dogs who love chew toys. Designed to keep your pup's teeth clean, this toy is made from durable thermoplastic natural rubber. My dog goes through chew toys very quickly, and has had this one for almost a year!

    Reviewer's photo of their dog chewing on the green rope

    Promising review: "Our 'little baby' is 95 lbs and at 18 months he is all muscle. We had a smaller version when he was a pup that lasted over a year and this one is thicker and longer. He loves it!! This one toy is great for fetch, playing tug of war, and chilled out chewing when he’s lying at the foot of our bed. Most similar toys are either twice the price or simply don’t last. Great value!" —J. Lyons

    Price: $13.99+ (available in two sizes)

    28. A calming cat diffuser to protect your pet from stress. The diffuser only contains natural ingredients to calm your pet down, and it'll reduce their aggressive behavior. Effects will last for 30 days.

    Reviewer's photo of the purple diffuser

    Promising review: "So, a tiny black female cat recently adopted us and she loves to terrorize our adult male cat. She just charges, claws out, and jumps at the poor guy anytime she sees him walking, eating, sleeping, existing...She growls and hisses and then runs to us, all proud of her mischiefs. This is day one using the diffuser and the black devil spend her time sleeping, stretching, playing with her thousand toys, not giving a damn that our other cat is sharing the same space with her. I call that a huge improvement! The diffuser smells of lavender and chamomile, the smell is not overbearing (which is a huge plus for me cause I'm really sensitive with smells), but it does the work since the house is all quiet. Yesterday it was pure mayhem. I will be definitely buying a refill. Having a nice-smelling house and cats that get along, is a win-win for everyone!" —dorkface

    Price: $19.40

    29. A backseat cover that'll keep your car clean with an impenetrable waterproof barrier. It's especially designed to fit almost every car or SUV's backseats, and can be installed quickly and easily. When it gets dirty, just wipe or vacuum and it'll be good as new. There's even headrest and seat anchors.

    Dog sits on the black and orange seat cover

    Promising review: "Today was the third time I used the product, it covers my back seats completely and as you can see by my attached photos my dog also loves it! The quality is great. Easy to install in the car with easy adjustable straps. I really like it a lot. I that it easily converts from a hammock style into a bench style with a simple un-clip of the straps. It's also fun knowing you can share you with your dog while maintaining the integrity of your seats at the same time." —Tally

    Price: $26.96+ (available in two sizes and four colors)

    30. Compostable poop bags so you can clean up after your dog and save the planet at the same time. These biodegradable bags are ethically sourced and made from 100% botanical plant components. Oh, they're also leakproof and odorless. 10% of all profits go to the Soi Dog Foundation and their mission to end animal suffering!

    Reviewer's photo of using the green compostable bag after their dog

    Promising review: "OK so it seems kind of strange to write a review of dog poop bags, BUT....these are truly the best. I have owned dogs all my life and have used countless dog poop bags and I highly recommend these. First of all I like how environmentally friendly they are. I also love that they donate a portion of the sales to animal welfare organizations. But the best thing by far is the actual design of the bag. Not only is it sturdy, the mouth of the bag is super-wide, which means I can get everything at once, all in one swoop so to speak! I have a 91-lb. German Shepherd and he does BIG JOBS. The width of the bag opening means I can spread my hand wide inside to get the whole job at once, and the width makes the whole closure action non-messy. Excellent product!" —Kathy
