Pamper Your Pet With These 10 Must-Have Items for Furry Friends

Whether you’re a dog lady or cat bro, if you’re reading this, there’s probably at least one pet you consider to be a member of the family. That’s because pets are always there for us, rushing happily to the door to greet us after a long day (dogs) or perching expectantly on top of our computer keyboards, signaling that it’s time for us to take a little play break (cats).

Pets add a special kind of companionship, comic relief, and, yes, sometimes a little chaos, to our otherwise human lives. And while you have other things on your mind — work, chores, your favorite team’s playoff record — our pets rely on us to fill their worlds with interest, activity, and, above all, snacks.

So, in the spirit of adding a little excitement to the lives of our animal family members, here are ten fun pet items to reward your animal BFF for being the very best boys and girls.

Pitpet Orthopedic Dog Bed

Your little furry friend doesn’t have to be geriatric to enjoy an orthopedic bed’s sweet, plushy softness. Pitpets Orthopedic Dog Bed is a doggo-approved oasis with a cushioned flannel top, waterproof TPU liner, and a non-slip bottom to offer extra grip. 

Cleaning it is also simple. When it starts to smell or when accidents happen, you can unzip the outside liner and toss it in the washing machine.


Mr. Pen Water Bottle

Head out on your favorite hike and pack this doggy (or outdoor pet) must-have. Mr. Pen’s Water Bottle is an easy-to-carry water station for your furry friend. Perfect for road trips, hikes, visits to the dog park, or anywhere else water bowls aren’t available on tap. 

Each bottle stores 19 oz of water, and the built-in tray is an instant water bowl for your pet. It comes with a leak-proof lid, a water dispensing button and lock, and a hand rope for easier carrying. Bring this doggy-approved water bottle on your next adventure.


KONG Classic Rubber Dog Toy

Does your dog destroy every toy you give him? Then try this (pretty much) indestructible rubber dog toy from Kong. It’s a classic dog toy you and your pet can play fetch with, but it also has a secret power: it’s stuffable!

Stuff treats, peanut butter, or your pet’s favorite foods in the middle, and your pet will entertain itself for as long as it takes to reach the treat. There are different toys and rubber strengths for each level of chewer. Choose from the Puppy Rubber, Senior Rubber, Classic Rubber, and Extreme Rubber. (Pictured above is the Classic Rubber.)


Kipritti Dog Chew Toys

It’s the ultimate smorgasbord of dog toys! Kipritti’s chew toy set comes with everything you need to keep your dog entertained. The 23-piece set comes with three rubber teething toys, seven rope toys, seven training toys, and six extra gifts (poop bags and a holder). 

The Dog Chew Toy set is ideal for someone who’s just picked up their puppy or adopted a dog. It will help you get to know your furry friends better and discover what toys they enjoy.


Victoper Dog Car Seat Cover

If you’re a hiking, beach, or road trip family and want your furry companions to join you on all your adventures, a car seat cover is the perfect way to pamper your pet (and yourself). The waterproof and scratch-proof design makes it a no-brainer. You’ll get a pristine back seat, and your pup or furry friends will get a comfortable and safe seat. 

The cover can be used in multiple ways. You can lay it over the seats as a bench or zip up the side and transform it into a hammock to protect pets from falling. It’s also machine-washable, so you can just pop it into the laundry when it needs a little TLC.


Pet Maker Pet Playpen

Does your little love bug need a safe space to play? Whether you’re looking for a pet pen so you can get the house clean, travel, or find a secure way for them to enjoy the great outdoors—without you having to be on guard the whole time—a pet pen is an excellent way to give them a safe, enclosed area. 

The pop-up design allows you to easily fold it up for compact storage, and it takes up virtually no space in the house or car. The tent is ideal for animals up to 25 pounds and has four metal stakes to keep it in place for outdoor use.


Petepela Cactus Cat Tree

Do you value your indoor furniture and want to find a cute way to build a house for your cat? Petepelas’s Cactus Cat Tree’s adorable design is a great way to give your cat a nice place to perch and rest without running your design vibes. 

The cat tree has a cozy hammock, scratching ramp, small cat house, and perch at the top. It’s a great way to add a space just for your cat in your home without sacrificing your furniture.


MeoHui Interactive Cat Toys

This small bundle of cat toys is the best way to keep your furry friend entertained. Each wand is designed as a “telescopic cat fishing pole,” so you can dangle an assortment of feathers and lures to entertain your pets. 

Most cats love the interactive toy and are endlessly entertained with the feather toys.


Mecool Cat Scratching Post

If your cat loves to scratch their claws on your furniture (or their old scratching post is worn out), the Mecool Cat Scratching Post is the perfect addition to your home. The post is designed to blend in with its neutral colors and is made with long-lasting materials. It also comes with two toy attachments to help stimulate your furry friends and keep them busy.


PetSafe Meal-Dispensing Cat Toy

Looking for ways to entertain and mentally stimulate your pets? The PetSafe Meal Dispensing Toy is great for entertaining your fluffy companion and is also an excellent tool for slowing down fast eaters. Just pop open the device, add treats or food, and let your pet run wild while finding ways to release the food. It’s dishwasher-safe and easy to clean up after use.
