This bright toy is a favorite of many a playful pup. Multitudes of reviewers report their dogs' mysterious love for this special duck—and the fact that while other stuffed toys are ripped to shreds, this one remains intact! It's soft, squeaky and suitable for snuggling (though maybe not the best for strong chewers).
Bugco Bow Ties & Dog Collars
Based in Grand Prairie, Texas, this Etsy shop sells handmade collars in a huge selection of styles and prints.

Best Friends by Sheri The Original Calming Shag Fur Donut Cuddler Cat & Dog Bed

Andy's Dandys Baked Dog Treats
Super-crunchy and satisfying, Andy's Dandys dog treats feature human-grade ingredients and all-natural colors in the frosting and sprinkles. Flavors like apple-Cheddar and maple-pumpkin call to mind the mountains of Vermont, where they're made by hand by a family-run business that also helps provide job training to teens and young adults with disabilities.
Grounds & Hounds Coffee Co. "More Please" Dog Bowl
The words at the bottom of this dishwasher-safe, sturdy ceramic dog bowl could just as easily be on the bottom of a latte mug—we know the feeling! And the company behind it, Grounds & Hounds Coffee Co., does too. It specializes in single-origin and other coffee as well as dog gear—and 20% of all profits are donated to pet rescues around the country.
K&H Pet Products EZ Mount Window Scratcher Kitty Sill Cradle
For bird-watching or basking in the sun, a window perch will be your cat's new favorite hangout spot. This one has a slim silhouette that mounts right to the glass with surprisingly strong suction cups, saving prime living room real estate. Bonus: The curved cardboard seat doubles as a scratching surface, which can be easily replaced once your cat has had her way with it.
Land's End Dog Rain Jacket
Keep your pup dry and warm on drizzly walks with this adorable raincoat. It comes in navy or yellow and features a soft jersey-knit lining, plus reflective accents for visibility.

Frisco Cactus Cat Scratching Post
Choose from a 22- or 31-inch sisal scratching post designed to keep your kitty's claws healthy. The cactus shape is anything but prickly, and the stable base allows your four-legged friend to climb and play without knocking it over. Plus, the nubby plush material of the cactus is ideal for cats who love to nuzzle.
