Don’t look elsewhere for the Best Gifts for Pets and Their Owners! There’s an old joke about the difference between dogs and cats that goes something like: “you feed a dog, you give it a home to live in, you give it love, so it thinks you’re a god. You feed a cat, give it a home, food and love, so it thinks it’s a god.” Anyone who has had a dog or a cat can confirm this little snipe on cats to be true. Or maybe it’s really just saying dogs are a bit dopey. But at the end of the day, we all want to make our pets happy. Here are some essential gifts for pets to make that happen!
25 Best Gifts for Pets That’ll Make Your Furry Friend Happy
We’re going to split these awesome pet gadgets into a few different categories so you can take a look at the products that best fit your furry friend: from gift ideas for dogs to gift ideas for cats ( like cat gadgets and cat toys) and gifts for all our four-legged friends.
Gifts for Dogs
Let’s be honest, if you give a dog a seventeen-day old bowl of cereal he will be ecstatic. But these gifts show your love much more deeply than just throwing the scraps off the table. You wouldn’t do that to a friend, would you? Take a look at these awesome pet gifts for dogs.
If you’ve ever tried to take a selfie with your doggy buddy, you know how much of a joke that is. You’re going to need to take at least 92 hundred photos before you get one where he’s looking at the camera and you don’t look frustrated at him. This pet selfie tool is the greatest thing since sliced bread in that regard. It connects to your phone and holds his favorite toy, so he’s always looking at what he really wants, that rawhide bone.
This leash is so cool! It has an umbrella attached to it at a comfortable height that protects your pooch from the elements when you take him out on a walk. And it totally destroys your excuse for not letting him get the exercise he deserves, rain or shine!
Another critical tool for dog owners especially. It covers the entirety of your back seat so that your furry friend doesn’t turn the entire thing into a giant fur farm, and you’ll be able to have guests in your car again without washing the whole interior out.
The problem with cutting a dog’s nails is that you have to be extremely careful not to cut to deep or you can do serious damage to Mr. Snuggles paw. This little pet gadget fixes the problem because it gradually grinds the nail down rather than just clipping it off. Safety first!
Not only is this pet gadget compatible with your Alexa device, but it also is just great fun for cat or dog owners alike. It has a camera so you can see your pet’s reaction when you fling out a treat for them to eat. We know, it’s hard to be on your lunch break knowing that the little guy is just sitting on the sofa loyally waiting your return. Give him a treat while you’re at work for being such a good boy!
This tennis ball launcher comes in both large and small sizes, and your doggy should get the hang of how it works quickly! Especially if you have a retriever, it will learn to bring the balls back and put them in the hole in no time. Endless fun!
This product is amazing, and I wish I had it when I got my first two dogs. It’s a toy that is shaped in such a way that when the dog bites down on it, their teeth sink down into a bristled crevice, polishing up their pearly whites nicely. If you have ever tried to brush a dog’s teeth the old-fashioned way, you know that for some strange reason they like the taste of doggy toothpaste, and this makes things difficult.
The smarter of our doggy friends will figure out how this pet gift works relatively quickly, while the simpler of them may take some time and demonstrations. But once they figure it out, you can be sure that your dog can stay outside however long they want and not get thirsty! Water for drinking (or play) on demand!
Another excellent product I wish I had years ago. The bottom line is no matter how hard its raining, snowing, or hailing, Mr. Snuggles is going to need to go outside and do his business sooner or later. This convenient little pet gadget allows you to clean his paws thoroughly and quickly when he comes back inside.
The struggle of how to bring a container for your doggy to drink out of when you go on a walk is a serious one. Those foldable water bowls don’t really work, and you don’t want to have him drinking out of your bottle either. This awesome bottle turns the bottle into a cup for him to drink out of. Perfect!
This little pet gift is designed to help your dog learn how to not scratch the door. You can remotely tell them to sit, and then it will spit out a little treat for them when they do! Scratching will quickly be a thing of the past!
Whatever the suits on Wall Street think, cats are the true masters of the universe. Their plan for global domination will soon come to fruition, so you want to be sure you are one of the chosen humans that will carry out menial tasks for them once their plan is complete. A great way to curry favor with your cat master is to get them a gift, just be sure you show the proper respect when you deliver the tribute.
Even the laundry room is an awful place to have to bear witness to a liter box. It’s just not something you really want to ever see. This litterbox fixes the problem, because it disguises the liter box to look like a potted plant, and it’s big enough for large cats.
Cat owners will recognize the utility in this water fountain immediately. It keeps the water moving so the water doesn’t become stagnant and disgusting after the first drink. Our cat overlords are not known to be forgiving when it comes to stale water, so prevent reprisals on your furniture by keeping their water fresh.
Cats are clearly the cleverer of the three species in question here, so they need complex toys to keep them from going crazy and trying to tear holes in the furniture of their prison. This is the perfect pet gift for them! It’s got three levels so they never know which direction the ball will be coming from!
Being the conscientious overlords that they are, cats like to maintain their elite status partially through their appearance. This means they are often looking for a place to groom, which (not that they care) may be your thousand-dollar sofa. This convenient grooming tool can attach to a door or even a sofa leg, depending on your kitty’s preferences. And they do have preferences.
Wellness Center really is the perfect word for this cat gadget. It’s got all sorts of nice cat scratching paraphernalia, and it has a container to store catnip in…which for the uninitiated means that your cat won’t be able to resist this tool for a minute!
Here’s an awesome environmentally friendly solution to the timeless problem of cat hairballs. You can grow the grass in your house and your kitty will surely gain interest in munching on it, which is really good to prevent hairballs!
Some of these cool pet gadgets are just great for all our furry friends, whether they be canines or felines. These pet gadgets are really cool and will certainly be appreciated by your buddy at home. 18. Pet Feeding Reminder (especially cats are great at fooling you about their meals) This handy little device should be on the fridge of every pet owner, but I must say it’s especially good for cats who are great at fooling you about their meals. It’s a simple A.M./P.M. system that you can use to keep track of whether or not you’ve fed your buddy.

OK this is just one of those must haves for dog and cat owners. You fill it with their food, and then it automatically releases the food at whatever intervals you want, up to four a day. This is also perfect if you know that life is going to get in the way of you being home on time to feed the little guy.
Ok so the last time my pooch got lose, well actually the last two times, the city police found him before I did. Yes, that may be considered lucky by some, but I didn’t feel lucky when I was slapped with a ticket that said my doggy was “at large” in the neighborhood. With this handy dandy tracker, you can find your kitty or pooch quick!
Cats lick their fur until they throw up. Dogs skillfully deposit their fur on every surface in the house. In both cases, the fur ends up causing problems. With this grooming brush, you can reduce the problems caused by fur, and pets generally love getting combed by this awesome pet gift.
That being said, some pets don’t like being brushed. Others have such a serious fur production problem that more serious measures need to be taken before it causes social unrest. In that case, pet grooming gloves are the way to go. They’re super durable and they collect fur so well you wonder how your pooch or feline still has any at all!
It’s a classic image of the boy and his dog making a complete mess when they try to get the dog clean, isn’t it? Part of the problem is being able to effectively rinse the fur, which really seems to soak up shampoo. But it’s really important to make sure that happens, because even doggy soap residue can harm a dog’s skin and fur. This awesome shower sprayer hooks up to a bathtub or garden hose and makes sure that your dog or other pet comes out of the shower ready to run amok!
This pet pool is so much better than classic backyard pools because it drains and folds up super easily, so it doesn’t leave a blight on your yard for the whole summer and destroy all the grass underneath it in the process. Can you imagine being covered in fur all summer? This is a great pet gadget that your furry friend will enjoy thoroughly!
Every pet, canine, feline, or ferret needs a good bed to relax on when nothing is going on, which is well, most of the time. The only trouble with this furry bed is you’ll have trouble not joining your palls down on the floor!
For all the happiness they bring to us, it would really be a shame to leave our pets out of the gift giving tradition this holiday season. Judging by how many hours they sleep every day; one would think that a dog or cat’s life is fairly monotonous. You can spice things up for them with a few pet gifts. It’s probably a good idea to get a couple of them though, because we all know how quickly that little monster of yours tears the squeaky bit out of his chew toys!
