Heads up: Both the brand and reviewers say this hoodie runs small so order a size up.

Promising review: “Sometimes I have to call in sick to my job because the cat won’t let me change out of the roo. It’s not forbidden to wear a roo to work but it might make people not take me very seriously so I only go to work on the days the cat says I can. Seriously, this is the dorkiest thing ever and I look really stupid in it but I love it for real.” —JustMe

Promising review: “I have two cats and while one is totally uninterested in this ball, the other one likes to play with it and get treats. She’s smart and likes challenges so it keeps her entertained and also helps her to not overeat.” —Pauly.

Get it from Amazon for $9.95+ (available in two sizes for big and small dogs).


OR a maze feeder that’ll make mealtime way more fun and stimulating for your pets. It’ll also help pets refrain from scarfing down their food in one huge gulp.


Promising Review: “I have an eighty-pound golden retriever and he loves this bowl. We feed him up to two cups and have never had an issue with fitting it all in the bowl. I know some people wrote that their dog knocks it over but I’ve never had that issue. It made his eating time go from 30 seconds to about two to three minutes.” —Victoria

Get it from Amazon for $7.45+ (available in three sizes and five colors).


An electric nail trimmer so your babe’s manicure remains on point at all times. Bonus: It has a super quiet motor which will be great for pets that are skittish about strange, loud sounds.


Promising review: “I just adopted my beagle about eight months ago and have been struggling with cutting his nails. He hated it, I hated it. I could not bring myself to spend $10 for someone to do something that I had the tools for. So my dog suffered, I suffered…for eight months until I decided to just give up because they were getting ridiculously long and I took him to Petsmart. I figured that I would watch Petsmart cut his nails two or three times and waste $30 watching them do it until I learned it. Then I discovered that they grind nails. Whoaaaa! I was like, ‘what is a grinder?’ The Petsmart lady pulled this nifty little gadget out of her dog nail supply bucket and I took pictures of it. It was really easy to find here on Amazon. I think hers was the 7700 but this one is $20 cheaper. I have been using it for several weeks and cutting his nails is actually kind of fun now. He is a bit scared of it, but I think he will get used to it. It smooths out his nails and files them away. I don’t think I’m ever going to have to go back to the nail scissor with this thing. It has also held on one charge for several weeks, I have yet to recharge. INCREDIBLE! The cat does not like the sound. Otherwise, I would have used it on the cat as well.” —Princess

Immunity-boosting allergy supplement soft chews so your dog gets relief from allergies and all other kindsa doggy discomfort things. Each soft chew has probiotics and other nutrients to help with immunity, digestion, and skin irritation.


It’ll also help give your pooch a shiny, luxurious-looking coat!

Promising review: “This is absolutely the best product. It saved my itchy Goldendoodle! We tried changing food, Benadryl, medicated shampoo, fish oil, everything you can imagine… Nothing worked long-term. He was itching his face so badly he would make himself bleed. He had sores and scabs all over his face and neck. I bought these because they had good reviews and I was desperate. It changed his life! He no longer scratches AT ALL! His coat looks great and all of his sores are healed. He’s the happiest he’s been which makes me a very happy momma. He is also very picky and never eats treats… He eats these every time so that’s an added bonus!” —Darcie Nation

Get them from Amazon for $25.97.


A handheld shower attachment to give your fur baby a super relaxing bath experience. Hey, you get the bathtub pillows and bath bombs and such. Doggie baby gets this shower attachment.


It comes with an eight-foot hose and two spray settings. Bonusss: You can attach it to your shower OR an outdoor water hose.

Promising review: “I bathe four dogs a month and have bought about every kind of dog shower out there. So far, this has not only outlasted all the others but the dogs really like this. I have shepherds with the thick coats and was afraid this wouldn’t get through their coats but it does. I like the two settings and can get around their faces without it being harsh. It rinses the soap out of their coats very well. So far still no leaks and it’s working perfectly.” —K9Arlo

Get it from Amazon for $33.01.


A snout soother so your dog can give you those cold, wet nose snuggles that always make your lips say, “Ewww!” while your heart says, “Awww!”


Promising review: “Well, I have never before been so shocked at the effectiveness of a product. Our 5-year-old Frenchie, Carol, had a nose that was so crusty it was sprouting these long strands of more crust. There was literally crust on crust on crust. The nose had strings of crust. This nose was so crusty and repulsive it was almost beautiful. Her nose might have resembled the rarest, most exotic geode to be mined from the rarest mine in Guatemala. A friend recommended Snout Soother for Carol’s repulsive nose. I was worried she would just lick it all off and it wouldn’t work. We never imagined she could have a regular, soft, moist nose again. Honestly, this product is some black magic stuff! Unbelievable results in three to five days. No one paid me to write this.” —Brittany

Get it from Amazon for $7.95.


Collapsible tunnels to create a straight-up playground for small cats, dogs, bunnies, etc. Ya’ know how kids like to hang out in a “fort” with blankets, boxes, and such? Well, this is the “fort” for the kids with fur.


It has three tunnels, a peephole, and a bell toy. It’ll fold up like those collapsible cylinder laundry bags so you can store it whenever you want your floor space back.

Promising review: “We got this for Pixie, our bunny! It took her a bit to get used to it but now she is obsessed with it! It’s a clever design with the middle peep-through hole! She pokes her lil’ head through it and we laugh so hard! She HAS to go through the tunnel no matter what to go anywhere! She even started pushing a big ball through it! Hilarious! Our bunny is about three or four pounds and she is a chunka chunka, but runs through it like batman!” —Memo13

Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in 17 styles).


OR, a whole tunnel BED for pet parents who ~really~ want to shower their tiny friends with fun and relaxation. When your babies burn all their energy out after running around in the tunnel and playing with the bell toy, they can chillax on the bed. If you have a super hyper furry friend, then you may have just found their new favorite thing.

amazon.com, amazon.com, amazon.com

The “tunnel” can wrap around the entire bed or take on an S shape separate from the bed.

Promising review: “My ferrets LOVE this thing. Tunnels and a bed all in one… Ferrets sleep like 80% of the time but when they play, they LOVE tunnels. Immediately after opening this, my ferrets went wild bouncing inside and playing chase with each other. My darker ferret is the ‘tunnel game’ ruler and he favors it more than anything. Meanwhile, my white ferret is subjected to the game. She is taunted and teased until she enters the tunnel and then he will jump on her and they wrestle together, run around the tunnel in circles, and then when they are absolutely exhausted they pass out inside the tunnel or in the center where the plush cushion is located. They feel very comforted in here and they treat it as if it’s their den. I’m tempted to get another one for their playroom. Ferret owners, this is a game-changer.” —Jess

Get it from Amazon for $30.99+ (available in four styles).


Natural vegetarian treats to reward your pet for whatever you want. They’ll also help maintain your favorite smile in the world since the chews will prevent plaque and tartar buildup.


These are also a solid option for pets that have meat allergies! Plus, they’ll calm down the bad breath that threatens to take your entire nose off.

Promising review: “I can’t believe these things actually literally get everything off of my dogs’ teeth. They won’t let me brush their teeth and it becomes a huge ordeal and I can’t do it thoroughly. So, I tried these for a couple of months and it literally got everything off of my dogs’ teeth that were in pretty bad shape. I give them each one per week — the large size because they are both 100 pounds each. I’ll always buy these. They are helping my dogs soo much. Greenies are TOO SOFT! They don’t do anything. I love these and I love that they’re vegetarian because I prefer buying my dogs treats free of animal products. Thanks Whimzees!” —Courtney

Get it from Amazon for $14.99.


A snuggly tear-resistant stuffed duck that your dog will have a BALL trying to conquer for a really long time. No more ragging a plushie until its cotton guts spill out within the first 10 minutes of it being in your house. You’ll be gifting your baby the perfect cuddle buddy!


Keep in mind that this toy is tear-resistant so if you have a dog breed that’s known for its super jaw strength, then it may last ~longer~ than other toys your babe has owned, but don’t expect it to last through the afterlife.

Promising review: “My German Shepherd loves playing with stuffed, squeaky toys but he rips every single one to pieces within minutes of receiving it — except for this one! He’s had this duck for over two months now and plays with it often. He loves to play fetch with it. He’s played with it so much that the squeaker doesn’t work anymore. I’ve washed the toy multiple times and it washes very well. I just ordered him another one of these because they’re such a great value. And so he can have a squeaker toy to play with because it’s just so dang cute.” —K. Forrester

Get it from Amazon for $7.90.


A Hide-A-Squirrel toy with three squirrels hiding inside of a tree trunk to give a plushie-lovin’ doggie the thrill of the hunt!


Promising review: “I only bought this because of the high ratings and low price. As soon as I showed my dog the toy he went crazy. I hide the squirrels in the trunk and he loves shoving his snout in the opening and pulling the squirrels out. Maybe he feels like he’s hunting or perhaps it makes him feel like an apex predator, but he loves it, lol. I bought the small size for my 10-pound dog. The squirrels are just the right size and fit perfectly into his mouth. He has enjoyed countless hours with this toy and it’s almost time to buy a replacement. These toys will not last forever, it totally depends on your dog and how much of a chewer he/she is. My dog has destroyed the squirrels and I will gladly buy more. The toy lasted about three or four months and I consider this normal since it’s a plush toy, not a plastic bone. The squirrels have squeakers in them and the trunk is hollow so you can stuff ’em inside.” —Escar

Get it from Amazon for $6.79+ (available in three sizes and four styles).


A lick pad so fur babies can enjoy their favorite snacks (ahem, you better know that peanut butter is LAW!) while you administer shots, take them for a car ride, brush their coat, scrub-a-dub-dub ’em clean, or whatever else you need to do to keep your sweetie happy and healthy.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “When I first tried bathing my puppy without this thing, it was a NIGHTMARE. He was in and out of the tub, hated the water, and it was just awful. By the time it was over, I was wetter and soapier than he was! But I soon discovered my puppy loves peanut butter! So I bought this slow treater, and amazingly I was able to bathe him with no problems at all in about 15 minutes! He stood docilely in the tub the whole time!!! I don’t think he was even aware I was bathing him!!!! He was so good that I decided to also try filing his nails with a new Dremel tool I had bought. I had been trying to train him to the Dremel for the whole previous week. He is normally not scared of noises the vacuum cleaner and even fireworks are no problem for him but for some reason this one he couldn’t get used to and kept shying away from me whenever I turned it on. I had pretty much given up hope that he would ever let me use it on him. But after our bath time success, I brought the Aquapaw down and stuck it to my sliding glass door after his bath, and 10 minutes later I had all four paws done! Again, he barely even noticed I was doing it! He looked back once when I was doing one of his back toenails as if to say ‘oh, what’s that thing?’ and then went happily back to his peanut butter! This thing is so great I have told everyone about it and I even bought a couple more of them for two of my friends with puppies. If your puppy doesn’t like bathing and getting his nails trimmed, GET ONE OF THESE!!! They are miraculous!!!!” —Rachel B.

No-rinse pet shampoo that’ll make “bath” time feel like the regular-degular rubbing sessions your pet is used to. They won’t even realize they’re getting clean and they’ll get one of their favorite things in the world: BELLY RUBSSSSS!


Promising review: “I bought this product for my cat. He’s older so it helps freshen him up. He enjoys the lavender scent because he’s extra. No need to worry about if your cat will get sassy or run away because this is a foam, not a spray and literally they will be so irritated by the fact you are brushing them that they won’t even notice you applying something to their fur. No claws or bites were used while applying the shampoo, and my cat smelled like he just got back from a zen convention.” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $5.97.


An elevated bed so your boo can live in the lap of luxury and enjoy the great outdoors on warm days right alongside you! This’ll make sure they never have to lay on the pavement or grass.

amazon.com, amazon.com

It’ll also be perfect to use indoors for pets (like German Sheps!) that tend to get super hot. Several reviewers also noted that it’s easier to clean and move than traditional fluffy dog beds.

Promising review: “This has been the best dog bed we have ever bought! The material is super thick and I highly doubt it will rip unless a human jumps on it. The bed also has rubber bottoms so it doesn’t slide at all on wood floors which is AMAZING. We laid a blanket on it and there are always one to two of our pups laying on it. They absolutely LOVE it! My male Pitty has issues with a back leg and this keeps him up and elevated from the hard floor. We have three that are 30, 50, and 85 pounds. All 3 have been standing at once on it and it’s FINE! It’s nice that the dogs’ hips, legs, and elbows don’t sit on the hard floor as well. IF YOU NEED A DOG BED, THIS IS THE ONE TO GET!” —Charity G.

Get it from Amazon for $27.19+ (available in four sizes and two colors).


Paw protection cream you’ll be able to use in every season to keep your pets’ feet safe from egg-frying hot pavement, sand on the beach or boardwalks, ice, and salt. The formula keeps paws moisturized with vitamin E.


Promising review: “My dog has extremely dry and cracked paws so rough she gets stuck to the carpet. I’ve tried just about everything and all failed for various reasons. This product works. I was only able to do one paw the first time because she fought me like a demon. Next time, she let me do all four with little fuss and she likes the result. I followed everyone’s lead and put it on right before walks. I’ve noticed that she wants to run and jump more, and genuinely is happy with her feet. One downside is because it softens the pads you have to be careful where they step; she picked up a thorny branch where before the treatment it wouldn’t penetrate. Fair trade in my opinion. Now we can play and snuggle without her scratching me up. Bottom line: love it, the dog loves it, good value little goes a long ways. —Peggy

Get it from Amazon for $25.50+ (available in eight sizes).


A step ladder to treat pets to a lil’ pick-me-up for the car, a high bed, or even a couch. This’ll be a super sweet gift for tiny pets that need to get to higher places ~or~ older pets that can’t hop up on things as easily as they used to.

amazon.com, amazon.com

The ladder folds up so it can be stored easily. It also has built-in side rails and non-skid feet so your sweetie can get up and down with confidence! Btw: Since not all pets will immediately recognize what to do with their new steps, the brand recommends you “teach” your pet how to use it first by placing a treat on each step.

Promising review: “It works really well. We have two large dogs (85 pounds and 92 pounds) and two big pick-up trucks and this works just fine. It’s just an inch or two short of the back of my SUV and maybe six inches shorter than the back of the Sierra. It’s an easy extra step for the dogs. It folds down nicely to fit in either truck and the dogs really do not have any problems getting in or out. It’s really helping our backs since we’re not lifting these big (old) dogs in and out of our vehicles!” —Kristina

Get it from Amazon for $31.95+ (available in two sizes).


Floating cat furniture that’ll transform any wall into the purrr-fect obstacle course and part-time lounge spot for your feline. It also doesn’t hurt that this fixture looks like actual wall decor.

Pets Helper Co. / Etsy

Promising review: “This is a great product! It’s high quality, beautifully made, and the shipping was quick. Our cat loves his new hangout spot!” —Jennifer Yamaguchi

Get it from Pets Helper Co. on Etsy for $96+ (available in two sizes and three color options).


A pet brush to give your baby a cute lil’ hairdo. It also has a stainless steel blade with teeth that are long enough to grasp loose hairs in your dog’s or cat’s undercoat but tiny enough so your dog doesn’t feel like it’s being attacked by The Claw.


Promising review: “Great product! I have a five-month-old lab who would scream when I brushed her. With this brush, she relaxes and I get five times as much hair off. I didn’t know she had that much loose hair! Buying another for my brother!” —Katie Boone

Get it from Amazon for $14.97.


A doggie doorbell if your dog is like mine and will howl bloody murder when he’s ready to come in and you’re not moving fast enough for him. Over time, the dog will learn to just use their snout or paw to press the bell instead of screeching and scratching your door. Of course, the bell could also be placed inside if you’re willing to train your pup to use it to alert you when they need to go potty.


Promising review: “Our potty-bell prankster loves this! She learned how to use it in about two days so now we have no more accidents. We use it as a way for our Rott to tell us when she needs to go out. She sometimes uses it to play, pushing the button running out and in a circle like a crazy pup and then runs full speed back in. LOL. We find our potty-bell prankster hilarious so it works for us, and as long as you have a sense of humor with your pup, this is very worth it. We have a happy puppy and we’re happy she’s no longer pottying indoors.” —Nikkie

Get it from Amazon for $25.


A blow dryer that’ll give your pet a salon-level drying experience (only the best for your boo-boo!) and save you lots of time. After all, it takes long enough just to trick your pet into a bath. The dryer has two heat settings so your pet won’t get burned. It’s also safe on cats and dogs ranging from tiny to large sizes.


Promising review: “It’s now March 21, 2019, and I bought this back in October 2017. IT STILL FREAKING WORKS Y’ALL. In two years, my dog has never had a mat in her life (with the exception of small mats but I can comb that out!) nor have I ever needed to bring her to the groomers. This is truly the best, best thing money can buy for a broke poodle-owner on poodle fur maintenance. I’m saving hella money guys!” —Mary Estrella

Get it from Amazon for $70 (available in two colors).


A set of wool balls that’ll be a ~fetch~ing treat for doggies that never ever tire of running after ’em and bringing ’em back to you. These are gentle on teeth and made out of all-natural materials.


Promising review: “Got these for our 11-month-old pup. She absolutely loves these. She gathers them together, plays fetch, and just squeezes them in her mouth happily like tennis balls. We haven’t had any issues with them holding up so far.” —Jess Green

Get it from Amazon for $12.95.


A treat-tossing pet camera so you can ~tech~nically be with your best friend even when you have to be away for work or running errands. The device records your pet, tosses treats, alerts your phone when it detects barking and movement, and allows you to speak to your baby through your phone to calm them down or just say “hi.”

amazon.com, amazon.com

The device also has HD night vision so you can check in on your pet even when it’s dark.

Promising review: “I love this thing and I use it every day. I have a mischievous Shar-Pei and a pit bull and it’s really fun to creep on them and throw them treats throughout the day. This will be great when traveling, too. There are alerts for people being in your home, dogs being active, barking, and even smoke alarms. It tattled on our dog last week when I got an active alert, popped in, and caught her in the process of pulling a pizza box off the table to have a snack. It was hilarious to see her confusion and ‘guilty dance’ at hearing my voice. It’s definitely not a necessity but it’s fun to have.” —Alexandria Lillian

Get it from Amazon for $149 (available with free shipping).


A variety pack of kitty toys to create endless feline playtime in your house. Ha! But don’t think this huge pack is going to minimize territorial tussling if you have more than one cat. You know some kitties just live to fuss over the same toy no matter how many other toys are available. 🤷🏾‍♀️😼


Promising review: “So glad I bought this! Not only was it a great deal but there are three toys that my cat goes CRAZY for. One of them she chases down the hall and back and puts in her water dish when she’s done which I read has something to do with her wanting to ‘secure’ her hunted item. I even threw that same mouse into her toy box with a ton of different toys and she fished that one out of them all, carried it to me, dropped it at my feet, and meowed. So yeah, this purchase was a winner!” —Amber from Ohio

Get it from Amazon for $11.88.


A doggie seatbelt that’ll come in super handy for the pet owners whose furry friends’ separation anxiety WILL have them hopping from the backseat to the front to be closer to their favorite hooman.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I had originally purchased these seat belts in 2016, and they were a literal lifesaver for my dog. My car was totaled when a car going 45 mph in the opposite direction crossed lanes and hit us. My dog was wearing her seatbelt and the police and EMTs were shocked that she was OK and didn’t fly through the windshield on impact. They could barely get my door open and I went to the hospital but my dog was injury-free. I just purchased a new set for my new car and I would recommend these without question to any dog owner!” —Coral Smith
