25 Perfect Pet Products Your Furry Friends Will Love

When it comes to most pets—cat, dog, bunny or whatever else—most pawrents can attest to the old adage “It’s the little things.” We may bust our butts to afford our pets’ bougie lifestyles—expensive fresh-cooked food, costly vet bills when necessary and the like—but the old saying really rings true. Got an old Amazon box laying around? Cat heaven. Tattered old rope? Every dog’s dream.

Cardboard boxes and old worn toys aside, we all believe our furbabies deserve the best. So, skip the overhyped, super expensive stuff and stick to what pets really want! Here are 25 of the best pet products that your furry friend will actually love.

25 Best Pet Products

The Foggy Dog Painted Peonies Natural Dog Squeak Toy

The Foggy Dog’s Painted Peonies Natural Dog Squeak Toy is one of their best-sellers.
THE FOGGY DOG

Have you ever seen a bone so pretty? The Foggy Dog makes bone-shaped squeaky toys that dogs really love, but their recent collection of patterned bones—like the Painted Peonies, above—looks like an expensive piece of artwork. We promise your dog will love it but you, the human, also won’t mind if it’s laying around. It’s that pretty.

Some dogs prefer chews, others prefer rope toys—but if your dog will do anything for a hide-and-seek game, this one from Chewy’s Disney Collection is worth the price of a one-of-a-kind glass slipper. Gus Gus, Jaq and, of course, the iconic heel are three teensy squeak toys that fit inside Cinderella’s pumpkin turned coach.

Starmark Everlasting Treat Bento Ball

best pet products everlasting toy
The Starmark Everlasting Treat Bento Ball will keep your dog occupied for hours.
CHEWY

We’d be remiss to not mention a boredom-busting treat toy, as these things are lifesavers for pet parents who work from home, field phone calls or maybe just want some alone time. They also work great for helping dogs stave off separation anxiety, which we all know can sometimes become a real problem (especially now). The Starmark Everlasting Treat Bento Ball will last a heck of a long time and at just $14.30, it’s definitely a worthy investment.

This dog bed is perfect for pups who need help cooling down during the dog days of summer.

Brooke Medium Corner Credenza Pet Crate

best pet products crate
This credenza is half dog crate, half gorgeous piece of furniture.
WAYFAIR

Sorry to state the obvious, but pet crates aren’t always attractive. In fact, they can be a real eyesore if plucked in the middle of your living room or kitchen.

The Link

best pet products link
The Link is a wearable tracker that provides your dog’s GPS location, features tone and vibration settings, and even tracks your dog’s activity and movement throughout the day.
LINK

OK, so maybe this is more for you, the pet parent, but we promise your dog will still love what it means for them. After all, wearing The Link—a wearable tracker device—means a lot for the pawrent, but for dogs, it usually means more exercise and more walks! Let’s back up a bit: The Link non-invasively attaches to a dog’s collar and uses Verizon LTE to track their location as accurately as possible. If your pup’s a runner or you just like to keep an eye on them, such technology really comes in handy. Apart from GPS features, The Link also monitors your dog’s activity levels throughout the day—providing personalized recommendations based on their age, breed, behavior and size—has a tone and vibration training aid feature, and consolidates all your dog’s health records in one neat place: the app. Plus, it’s significantly less bulky than some of the other dog GPS trackers and/or wearables on the market right now.

best pet products finn multivitamin
Dogs can use supplements, too. The Finn Multi Vitamin keeps them healthy and fit.
CHEWY

Every pet parent wants the best for their furbaby, and that starts with the food you feed them, but we shouldn’t underestimate supplements, either. After all, many humans take multivitamins. Why shouldn’t our dogs? Finn makes exceptional, healthy, high-quality supplements for dogs, but their multivitamin is specifically noteworthy. It’s packed with viamins, prebiotics and Omegas, and tastes like beef liver. Not only do dogs love the flavor, but each product comes in a reusable, recyclable tin.

Stimulate your pup’s mind with this puzzle.
CHEWY

In addition to your standard chew and squeaky toys, puzzles are great toys for dogs.
