There’s no argument about it — pets are family members too. In good times and in bad, they’re always there for us, frolicking when when things are looking up, and offering reassurance when we’re down. So how about a little payback in the form of these pet products trending on Amazon that they’ll absolutely love (and that you’ll love too).

First off, if you don’t have a calming pet bed by now, go ahead and click “Add to Cart”. Especially helpful for anxious pets, it features raised sides that provide a cozy, cradling effect, and is crafted from plush faux fur that gives it a luxe touch. The best part — it’s earned an overall 4.7-star rating after more than 42,000 reviews.

You won’t want to stop there, though, because there’s lots more on the list. From ball launchers that bring your fetch game to new heights, to a bubbly water fountain that your cat will love drinking from, there are plenty of treats for your furry best friends — but there are things that’ll make being a pet owner more pleasant as well, like a dander-reducing spray to minimize allergies and a paw cleaner that puts an end to muddy floors. You know your pets are overdue for a little something-something, so what can I say? Go ahead and fetch all these clever pet items.


These Collapsible Bowls For On-The-Go Hydration

You’re not the only one who needs to stay hydrated and fed when you’re on the go, and these collapsible pet bowls make it easy to ensure that your dog (or cat) has food and water when you’re hiking, camping, or road tripping. These dishwasher-safe bowls hold up to 1.5 cups each and fold to nearly flat when not in use for convenient storage in a backpack or glove compartment.


A Litter-Trapping Mat That Keeps The Floors Clean

I hate it when my cats track or kick litter all over the floor, but this two-layer litter-trapping mat ensures that the mess stays contained. Litter falls through honeycombed top layer, and is then sandwiched between that and the bottom layer. For disposal, simply pick up and tip the open end into your trash or back into the litter box. Choose from three sizes and multiple colors.


This Grooming Glove That Traps Loose Fur

Clouds of pet hair clumped all over the floor are one of the down sides of having a furry friend, but this grooming glove can help. The palm of the glove is covered with silicone tips that collect the shedding fur while giving your pet a calming massage. The adjustable Velcro strap fits wrists of all sizes, and you can also use the glove while bathing to work up a good lather.


The Hunting Toy That Satisfies Your Cat’s Instincts

Cats are born with a natural drive to hunt, and this motorized chasing toy is a great way to satisfy that instinct. Along with flashing lights, the battery-operated wand underneath the fabric moves erratically in circles, so your kitty can chase and pounce on the faux fur tail. Plus, with adjustable speeds, you can really change it up and keep your cat entertained.


This Paw Cleaner That Keeps Mud Off The Floor

Put an end to mud on the floors, or worse — in your car — with this paw cleaner that offers a pro-quality wash in a flash. It’s simple to use and requires only water (and a muddy dog) to work — simply dip a paw in, twist the cup, and the silicone bristles will remove stuck-on dirt. It’s available in three sizes, and if you’re traveling, you can opt for one with a lid that keeps water contained in your car.


A Catnip Spray That’ll (Almost) Train Your Cat

Trying to train your cat is a near-impossible impossible task, but this catnip spray will lure them into doing what you want. Formulated with organic herbs that felines love, you can use the spray on carriers to get them comfortable before going to the vet, on scratch pads to keep their claws in designated places, or on old toys to restore their lost luster.


This Slow Feeder That Prevent An Upset Stomach

If your dog is prone to bloating or throwing up after eating too fast, this slow feeder bowl is a must-have. The spiral design of the bowl makes your dog work for his dinner, so that he eats up to 10 times slower, helping to prevent indigestion. Available in a variety of sizes, colors, and configurations, the bowl has a nonslip base that keeps it from sliding everywhere.


The Ball Launcher That Upgrades Your Game Of Fetch

You can’t go wrong with this ball launcher that boasts an almost perfect 4.8-star rating on Amazon. The launcher throws balls farther and faster than you ever could (unless you’re a pro baseball player), and the convenient scoop on the end means you can pick up the ball without even bending down.


The Scratcher That Helps Your Cat Groom Itself

This self-grooming scratch pad is like an all-in-one spa for your cat. First, your cat can indulge his scratching instinct on the corrugated cardboard platform (which is covered with dry catnip), and then, he can keep his coat shiny, smooth, and mat-free with the built-in brush — which means less grooming effort on your part.


The Pet Odor Eliminator That Reviewers Love

It’s definitely frustrating when your cat or dog has an accident, but you can channel that annoyance into this “angry” odor-eliminating spray. Approved by thousands of fans (including Snoop Dogg), it’s suitable for use on carpet, wood, upholstery, and tile, and leaves behind a fresh orange scent. As one reviewer wrote, “This product works miracles.”


The Puzzle That’ll Entertain Your Bored Dog

Featuring three different types of compartments for hiding treats, this puzzle toy challenges your dog and prevents boredom. The puzzle requires pups to sniff out the concealed treats, and then use their paws and snouts to open the lids to get to the reward. The perfect way to entertain your furry friend when you’re not around, it’s available in several different options, so you can buy a few and switch things up now and then.


This Oatmeal Shampoo That Soothes Dry Skin

This dog shampoo is a must-have for bath time, especially for pooches prone to dry skin and itching. The hypoallergenic formula is formulated with skin-soothing oatmeal to moisturize and soothe irritated skin. It’s properly pH-balanced, and the coconut lime verbena smells so good, you won’t be able to help but bury your face in your pup’s fur.


An Elevated Bed That Keeps Your Pup Cool On Hot Days

This elevated pet bed gives your pet a comfortable place to rest, while also promoting air circulation on all sides, which will help keep your pup cool in the dog days of summer. This sturdy design comes together in just minutes and features an iron frame and easy-to-clean mesh fabric.

The Cat Scratcher That’s An Architectural Work Of Art

With its sleek architectural curves, this cat scratcher is one toy you won’t mind leaving out in the open all the time.

These Wet Wipes That Clean & Soothe

These cleaning wipes are an easy way to refresh paws, fur, and backsides.

The plant-based wipes are compostable, and the convenient traveling pack is great for on-the-go use.


This 3-Tiered Toy For Endless Entertainment

For long-lasting play, this cat tower can’t be beat. Each of the three levels each has a ball that spins around the tracks — my cats love to see exactly how fast they can get them to go — while a nonslip base holds the tower in place. Plus, a thoughtful addition: The center opening has a safety bar across the top so that curious kitties don’t get their heads or legs stuck inside the toy.


A No-Spill Water Bowl For Dry Floors & Car Rides

Have you ever accidentally kicked your pet’s water bowl while preparing dinner, and then subsequently had to stop everything because your socks were soaking wet? Then you’ll really appreciate this no-spill water bowl. Also perfect for long car rides, it features a floating disk that adjusts height according to water level, so your pet can drink freely without making a wet mess.


The Brush With A Self-Cleaning Mechanism

Ideal for both cats and dogs, this grooming brush features dozens of bent wire bristles that gently detangle your pet’s coat while removing loose hair. Even better, the brush head retracts with the push of a button, and the built-in grates remove any hair from the bristles, so you can dump it in the trash. The rubberized comfort grip makes it easy to handle, and you’ll also get a bonus set of nail clippers.


This Pineapple Chew Toy That’s Ultra-Tough

Designed for dogs who love to chew (and chew aggressively), this toy is crafted from extra-firm rubber, making it highly durable under stress from even the most notable gnawers, like German shepherds, Alaskan huskies, and, let’s face it, every terrier known to man.

Plus, the hood has a replaceable air filter to help keep your space odor-free.


These Dog Waste Bags That Are Biodegradable

An eco-friendly choice for conscientious dog parents, these dog waste bags decompose in just 90 days (unlike plastic which, well, pretty much never decomposes). The bags are thick to prevent leaks and have gusseted side panels for extra strength and capacity. Plus, unlike their competitors, they’re easy to open, so you’re not standing on the sidewalk struggling to open a bag for minutes on end.


An Elevated Feeder To Help With Digestive Issues & Arthritis

Designed to improve digestion during meals, this elevated feeder is crafted from sturdy plastic and available in four colors to match any decor.

It includes two removable stainless steel bowls, and the feeder’s raised edges prevent messes on the floor below.


The Cat Cube That’s Perfect Even For Small Spaces

Cat condos have been around for a long time, but many are large and cumbersome. Enter this cat cube that’s petite enough for small spaces.

Perfect for kitties that are adjusting to new homes (or cats that are simply prone to anxiety), this calming diffuser can help reduce stress and prevent unwanted behaviors like spraying and scratching. It plugs into the wall where it releases an odorless copy of the pheromone that cats naturally emit from the glands under their whiskers. This pheromone is the marker cats leave behind to make their territory more comforting. One reviewer wrote, “I just moved my cats into a new pad; my older boy is very anxious as it is, so the move was very stressful for him. I plugged in two diffusers and he is adjusting nicely!”

The Paw Wax That Protects From The Elements

This paw cream shields your dog’s paws against hot pavement, sand, snow, road salt, and other potential irritants.

A Water Fountain That’s So Pleasing To Cats

It’s a fact that cats love to drink running water (some say it’s instinctive for them because still water can be contaminated in nature), and this pet fountain satisfies that primal desire.

Available in five colors, the stairs are light enough to move around the house and feature large, slip-proof carpeted landings.


A No-Rinse Shampoo For Waterless Cat Baths

It’s formulated with aloe vera, neem oil, vitamin E, and oatmeal to cleanse fur and leave it soft and shiny. The nourishing ingredients great for cats with itchy skin, too.
