Pet lovers across the world know you don’t need any special reason to spoil your beloved companion, but Love Your Pet Day certainly does present a great excuse to splurge a little on our furry friends.
For the dog in your life
They say dogs are a man’s best friend, and with their unconditional love, stalwart protection and affable nature, there’s no doubt they make the world a better place. What better way to return all the love they’ve given you than by spoiling them with a few new toys and treats? Here are some gift ideas for the dog in your life.
Add to their toy collection
Consider upgrading their tennis balls to a tougher alternative, grabbing a classic treat-hiding toy to bust their boredom or, for the hyperactive dog, finally splurging on that automatic tennis ball launcher.
Splurge on some bestselling treats
From peanut butter treats to bully stick chews, we found some of the bestselling dog treats on Chewy. Don’t forget to throw in some Greenies dental treats for good measure.
Help them sleep in style with a bed upgrade
From steel-framed, cooling riser beds to calming, fluffy donut beds, you can’t go wrong with any of these top picks.
Or just make it easier for them to hop into your bed or on the couch with some pet stairs
Pet owners may be split on the issue of allowing dogs on the furniture, but if you’re in favor of co-sleeping, these lightweight foam stairs make it easy for small and older pets to get up and down from tall furniture without getting hurt.
- Lightweight and easy to move
- Removable, washable cover
- Soft foam (easier on older pets)
Take them with you with an upgraded pet carrier
For most dogs, nothing makes them happier than simply being with their human. Make travel easier than ever with a car seat, an airline-approved pet carrier or even a rolling carrier.
For the cat in your life
Cats have a reputation for being smart, independent and aloof — and cat lovers wouldn’t have it any other way. Cats can also be incredibly loving, communicative and playful. We’ve picked out some bestselling treats, toys and accessories sure to please even the pickiest of cats.
