Share on Facebook

Buddy. Max. Mr. Whiskers. Whatever you call the furry residents of your house, they probably have BFF status. They see you at your best, they see you at your worst, they see you first thing when you wake up with morning breath … and they love you anyway! Our pets are like family, aren’t they? So, treat them like family with a little Amazon-flavored shopping spree because we’ve got the goodies you need to stock up on to help them live their best lives.

I’m not talking about toys (although Amazon has tons) because you probably have that covered. I’m talking about the stuff that’s going to make your life easier: A two-in-one sprayer/scrubber that makes bathtime simpler, a puzzle feeder that combats anxiety (looking at you, July 4th fireworks), and alllll the scoopers (no, really). I’ve even thrown in some good-for-them chews for better skin, digestive support, and stronger bones and joints. This list is a guaranteed winner — two paws up!

Cleaning Ears Doesn’t Have to Be Disgusting

If there’s one thing I’ve learned about pooches, it’s “the bigger the ears, the bigger the problems.” (Spoken by a dog mom whose dog’s ears don’t look like they belong on his body.) This ear cleaner solution can be used for odor, excessive head shaking, or waxy ears. Simply apply directly into the ear canal until the liquid becomes visible. Then, massage the ear base and use a cotton pad to wipe away excess dirt or fluid.

Bathing Your Pets Just Got More Paw-some

Save time, money, and water when you wash your furry friends at home with this innovative pet shower attachment. Cleverly named the “Aquapaw,” this all-in-one sprayer/scrubber tool lets you brush and rinse simultaneously with a one-handed on/off button so you can keep your other hand free. You can use this indoors or out … unless it’s winter, in which case, don’t be a jerk.

Hit A Lick

If this looks like it belongs in the bathtub when your pup is getting groomed, you’re right, but this slow treater has so many other uses — like when they’re at the vet or feeling extra anxious about storms or fireworks.  When filled with food, it helps keep your canine pal occupied and entertained while he’s home alone or encountering stressful situations.

Scoop, Scoop, Ba-Doop

If you have a pet, “scooping” is a part of the job. (You know what I mean.) This litter scooper is great for getting rid of the, ahem, gross stuff while returning clean litter to the pan, which saves you big bucks. Made of durable aluminum with an ergonomic grip, this purchase includes a plastic hanger for easy hanging storage.

advertisement

In Full Sling

Does your pet have separation anxiety? Do you? In my house, it’s the latter. This sling carrier lets you keep your dog or cat close by giving them a soft pouch that wraps around your neck for toting them here and there. Each sling carrier is designed for smaller breeds (no carrying your pitbull around, O.K.?) and features a reversible design.

Harness This Power

Pet harnesses are tricky, partly because we all have different needs and expectations from this type of device. This easy-on-and-off harness has both front and back leash attachments, is adjustable, and won’t choke your furry friend, which is kinda important. Rip-stop nylon fabric and reinforced stitching will keep this pet harness looking as new as the day you bought it.

On A Short Leash

Unlike many rope leashes, this rope leash with carabiner is made from climbing grade rope, which means that it can support up to 2,700 pounds of weight … which would be a really big dog. Coming in at six feet in length, the size provides enough room to let your dog roam while also allowing you to control him or her while walking, running, hiking, and more.

advertisement

Put It To Bed

Sometimes, I see things intended for pets that I wish were available in human sizes. This plush donut dog bed is numero uno. I mean, doesn’t that dog look insanely comfortable? I need that in my life. This bed creates a calm, soothing environment with a soft, shaggy faux fur lining your pet will love. Grab it in one of four colors and three different sizes.

What A Shocker

Help correct barking, walking, leash training, sitting, aggression, and other behavioral obedience with this dog training collar. For all dogs at least 10 pounds or more, this waterproof collar has both static stimulation and vibration as well a tone (beep) mode, which gives an audible warning. One reviewer called it a “lifesaver,” adding: “I rarely need to go past vibrate and the remote has a pretty good range.”

‘Poo For Your Pooch

Stop using your Pantene shampoo to wash your dog, O.K.? It’s just weird. This hypoallergenic dog shampoo tackles the dirtiest coats and toughest odors. It is a paraben-free, pH-balanced formula that’s safe for sensitive skin and moisturizes dry skin. It also won’t over-dry hair or skin, even with frequent baths. You can use this for other pets, too, like cats or even horses.

Pet Potty Privacy

Could I get a little privacy, please? Sure, you can’t go to the bathroom without your pet spying on you, but that doesn’t mean you should do the same. This litter box enclosure goes around your existing litter box so they can do their business without you being in it. This enclosure was designed to give your feline friends plenty of room to get in and out.

advertisement

Here Comes The Groomed

Some dogs hate being brushed but most dogs love getting a little affection from their owner. This pet grooming glove lets you do both in a motion they’ll recognize only as petting. This easily removes loose pet hair and tangles so no fur goes flying and allows you to groom hard-to-reach places like their face or tail. Grab a single glove or a pair.

advertisement

Hop On The Train

Getting a new puppy might be on someone’s Christmas list this season, but they don’t come without considerable work. This dog training set is the perfect addition to your household when it’s growing by four feet. It includes a dog training clicker and four must-have training tools to teach your dogs basic commands, work on their tricks and slay potty training.

Skin In The Game

You take vitamins, don’t you? (This is your reminder to start if you aren’t.) Your pets need additional nutrients as well, like this Salmon SkinHealth for dogs. It gives them a shiny coat, supports healthy skin, and protects joints. Made with real wild Alaskan salmon and fish oils, this is one thing that’s good for them that they won’t spit out.

advertisement

Belt It Out

I know what you’re thinking: Why does a dog need a seatbelt? This dog seatbelt gives peace of mind knowing your best friend is protected from sudden stops and swerves. Durable and shock-resistant, it’s made from a material your pup can’t chew through and is fully adjustable promising a secure fit. Allow your dog to move around while remaining protected in your car, truck, or SUV.

Shine A Light On It

Pet stains and pet odors linger … long after you’ve cleaned them and think they’re gone. This blacklight flashlight uncovers hidden stain- and odor-causing spots by lighting them up so you can treat them. Durable and weather-resistant, this flashlight goes beyond dog urine to identify bed bugs, scorpions, counterfeit money, leaks, glow paint, rocks, minerals, and much more.

Backseat Protection, Fur Real

Dogs love to go, don’t they? Just the mention of the word sends my little one into a total frenzy. This waterproof and scratchproof backseat protector lets your furry friend tag along without ruining the interior of your car. Designed to fit any car or SUV, this cover features four layers for protection and multiple anchors to make sure your seat cover is securely in place.

Knot Today

My dog isn’t much of a shedder but I know plenty of people with pets who are. This undercoat dematting comb gets to the root of the problem — deep beneath your pet’s coat to easily remove loose hair. It also helps to eliminate tangles, knots, dander, and trapped dirt on dogs and cats with all hair types while staying kind of their skin.

advertisement

Litter In The Trap

We’ve spent a fair amount of real estate so far talking about cat litter and for good reason. Cats need it, you want the least amount of mess possible. This litter trapper mat traps litter (um, duh) from cats’ paws and litter from the box, letting it fall through extra-large holes. The easy-open edge allows for easy cleaning by shaking or running it under a sink or showerhead.

advertisement

Comb On In

Tackle tangles, knots, loose fur, and dirt with a set of small and large combs. This works well on dogs and cats of all sizes and hair types and is suitable for both small and large areas (thus small and large combs). Smooth rounded ends prevent scratching, making it safe on your pet’s sensitive skin. These combs groom and massage for a healthy coat, increasing blood circulation and leaving your pet’s coat soft and shiny.

Knock Out The Odor

When a review says, “This is simply the BEST odor removing product I have EVER used. I am still amazed at how it does EXACTLY what it promises. IT COMPLETELY REMOVED ALL ODORS from my carpeting,” you know you’ve stumbled onto a good one. (Those all caps, though.) This enzyme cleaner and pet stain remover spray is worth the buy, citing that review alone.

Kick Some Grass

I didn’t know “yellow grass spots and grass burns from urine” were even a thing. This dietary supplement, GrassGreen, promises to keep your lawn green while supporting your pet’s digestion and intestinal health. It contains natural ingredients like cranberry, probiotics, and apple cider vinegar with no harsh preservatives, corn, soy, GMOs, or chemical ingredients. The duck flavor is sure to become your pup’s favorite.

Cat Scratch Fever

Listen, I’m not a cat person, I’ve never been a cat person and I’m never going to be. Part of that is because of this photo right here, which shows a cat trying to tear apart a couch with its bare, um, paws. This furniture protector keeps your furniture looking new, no thanks to that feline roommate you have who is hellbent on destruction. Exaggeration? Nah.

advertisement

Here’s The Scoop

We talked about a litter scooper but sometimes you need something a little more heavy-duty for your dog’s, um, heavy doodies. This dog pooper scooper is a nice accessory to have outside, allowing you to clean up after your pet without ever having to stretch, kneel or bend down. This is also perfect for picking up garden leaves, debris, and more.

Don’t Get Angry, Get Angry Orange

I appreciate a product that uses a tagline like, “Smells like heaven, works like hell,” and that’s exactly what this odor eliminator promises. Derived from fresh orange peels, this carpet deodorizer targets strong, lingering smells at the source to destroy them. This pet carpet cleaner can also be used to eliminate odors from tile, couch upholstery, litter boxes, bedding, garbage cans, car interiors, and more.

All-In-One Vitamin Support

More supplements? Yes, more supplements. This time is for a 10-in-one multivitamin that offers digestion, immune, and skin, and coat support as well as creating healthy joints and bones with things like glucosamine, probiotics and omegas. These feature a chicken flavor that pairs nicely with the other supplements we discussed above in salmon and duck flavors. One reviewer said it gave her 10-year-old pup “pep back in his step.”

advertisement

Right To The Litter End

We’ve discussed litter enclosures, litter mats, and litter scoops, but what about the litter box itself? This litter box is the only one you will ever need to buy, thanks to its stainless steel design that will never rust and is long-lasting. Ergonomically designed with rounded edges and enclosed sides, nothing will get stuck in the corners and odors won’t stick around either.

advertisement

This One Is Slick-er

I don’t know why the term “slicker brush” amuses me so much but I do really enjoy it. This is the perfect brush to eliminate nasty mats from your pet’s fur, thanks to its double-sided design that gently removes loose hair and gets rid of tangles, knots, dander, and trapped dirt. Your pet won’t know all of that; they’ll just know they like how they feel.

advertisement

New Leash On Life

I know the jury is out on retractable leashes but I still like them for the freedom they offer. This one is great for dogs up to 110 pounds, featuring a strong nylon ribbon that extends up to 16 feet. Simply hold the leash by the handle and the smooth and durable retracting mechanism will keep the leash tight. To stop the leash, press the brake button with your thumb.

advertisement

Brush It Off

If you prefer a bristle brush for grooming your pets, look no further. This brush is ideal for everyday brushing and fur fluffing on dogs and cats of all sizes and hair types. Densely packed bristles are soft on your pet’s sensitive skin. Did you know that brushing increases blood circulation and leaves your pet with healthy skin and a shiny topcoat? Now you do.

Have Harness, Will Explore

This is the ultimate adventure dog harness built specifically with active lifestyles in mind. Take your dog for a walk, run, hike, swim, or camping trip with a harness made from strong, military-grade nylon. This no-pull harness positions the back leash attachment and soft padding around the neck to help protect your dog’s trachea, while the front leash attachment can be used to teach your canine to heel and stop pulling.

Animal Allergy Relief

My dog sneezes but I’m not concerned because they’re FAKE SNEEZES. Yes, you heard me right, he does it just to get attention. The little imp. These salmon-flavored allergy support supplements are designed for dogs who are really struggling with seasonal allergies — and not just faking them. Inside, these tabs include ingredients derived from natural sources such as colostrum, salmon oil, turmeric, organic mushrooms, and probiotics.

advertisement

A Cut Above The Rest

I don’t have a death wish so you’re not going to find me taking a pair of scissors to my dog’s face any time soon. But, some of you are crazy … or better at this stuff than me — or both. This pet grooming scissor set has both serrated and regular shears for various grooming tasks. They also feature a safety round tip for easier trimming around the ears, nose, face, and paws.

advertisement

A Need For Nuggets

If there’s one thing all pets love, it’s treats. These freeze-dried dog food nuggets will delight them with the taste of chicken raised without antibiotics or hormones that are also free of grains, gluten, corn, wheat, and soy. Simply portion, shred and rehydrate with something like warm water or bone broth for a satisfying meal they’ll love. These are a perfect topper for existing dog food, too.

advertisement

Joint To Joint

Let’s talk about one last supplement you might want to stock up on: These chicken-flavored chews designed for advanced hip and joint support. Ease joint stiffness associated with daily activity and normal inflammatory response with good-for-them ingredients you’ll recognize: glucosamine, MSM, turmeric, and more. These are especially good for older dogs who have slowed over the years, giving them easy movement.

advertisement

Water You Doing?

Hiking, camping, walking, and traveling with your dog can be a lot of fun, but it also presents a lot of questions like, “Where are they going to get water to drink?” (If you’ve never packed your dog for something like this, it’s a lot like packing for a small child.) This leakproof dog water bottle gives them access to fresh water no matter where you are.

A Fido-Friendly Reminder

It seems silly to need a reminder to feed your pets. You don’t need a reminder to feed yourself, do you? (Don’t answer that.) This simple feeding reminder is a great tool for everyone in your house to know exactly what the furry members of the homestand need in terms of meals. This is especially good for teaching responsibility to kids tasked with caring for animals.
