Anyone who has pets knows how important it is to take good care of our furry friends. They love us, they keep us company, and in return, it’s all we can do to take good care of them and give them treats every once in a while. Here’s some great stuff you can find on Amazon to make your dog or cat a very happy boy or girl.
If you have a cat that likes to scratch, a good scratching post is essential. Giving your cat something to scratch on just might save the legs of that new couch your cat has been going to town on.
I like this one ($25.99) because it’s simple looking enough to fit with living room decor without making it obvious that your cat runs this household. It’s got two posts for scratching and a cozy hammock on top for your kitty to curl up in.
A playful cat is great for cute Instagram videos, but they can be destructive if they aren’t kept entertained.
This YOFUN Smart Interactive Cat Toy ($12.99) will give your kitty something to do for hours and hours. This cat toy combines new technology with classic fun, and it’s rechargeable, so no worries about batteries.
If you have a dog, especially a big dog, a harness can be a great way to cut down on pulling and give you a little more control when taking your pup out for a walk. My dog weighs 85 pounds and gets very excited for walk time. I used a choke chain with him for a while, but I hated every second of that.
I did some research and came across this Rabbitgoo Dog Harness ($16.98) and it completely changed the way my dog and I walk. Once I figured out how to get it on right-side-up, this harness is super easy to use and it doesn’t seem to bother the dog at all. It makes it much harder for him to pull, and it’s super easy to clean. I bought one for every dog owner I know last Christmas.
Every dog has their personal taste in toys. If your dog likes plush toys, but you’re sick of cleaning up the fluff from inside of them once your pup inevitably tears a hole in it, these are a great solution.
The ZippyPaws Skinny Peltz No Stuffing Squeaky Plush Dog Toys ($8.99) have no stuffing inside but still have a squeaker for maximum puppy fun. These are good sized and pretty durable for plush toys, and my dog seems to love them.
Your dog might not be the plush toy type. If you have a dog that’s more into aggressive chewing, these bones are unbeatable.
Even the toughest of chewers will meet their match with the Pet Qwerks Dinosaur BarkBone Chew Toy ($11.50). This dog bone is super durable and will keep your dog occupied for a very long time.
Throwing balls for your dog is a time-tested entertainment and exercise activity, but picking up that slimy, dirt-covered ball is not always the most pleasant experience
The Chuckit! Sport Launcher Dog Ball Thrower ($6.94) allows you to throw the ball super far for your dog to chase, without actually having to touch it when your dog brings it back. It’s the definition of a win-win.
Most pets shed. It is an unfortunate side effect of having furry friends in your house, but it doesn’t have to be an insurmountable problem.
These HandsOn Pet Grooming Gloves ($24.99) will help keep the shedding to a minimum. These are great because all you have to do is put them on and pet your dog or cat. The gloves trap the hair, so you can do it inside without making a huge mess. These gloves specifically have longer bristles allowing you to get deeper into the fur and trap more hair.
I don’t know about your furry friends, but my dog is a very messy eater. He manages to get food absolutely everywhere.
These Upsky Double Dog Cat Bowls ($12.99) eliminate so much of that mess. They’re technically for cats or small dogs, but my dog is giant and they work just fine for him too. The bowls are easy to remove and clean, and the lipped edge catches extra food or small spills.
Pets need to play, pets need to eat, and pets need somewhere nice and cozy to sleep.
This Furhaven Pet Dog Bed ($29.99) is technically for dogs, but it comes in multiple sizes for any pet. It also comes in tons of colors to match any bed or couch. This bed is super soft and cozy, and will undoubtedly make your furry friends very happy when it comes in the mail.
