As the most popular online retailer, Amazon is packed full of dog supplies that every pet would love, but sometimes it’s hard to weed through the hundreds of thousands of products that are available. Today we’re looking at some of the most useful best-selling dog products that any dog would love to have. Remember that the Amazon Prime Day is just around the corner, too.
1. PetChatz HD Camera
One of the more expensive “pet tech” gadgets on the market, the PetChatz system is reserved for only the most spoiled pets and pet owners. We’ve previously reviewed the PetChatz HD camera, testing all of its features, and among all pet cameras on the market available today, this one stands out the most.
Compatible with iOS, Android, and your desktop computer, this system comes with a two way audio/HD video pet treat camera so that you can interact with your pet anywhere. What puts this gadget over the top, though, is that it doesn’t just allow you to give your dog treats, but it has an aromatherapy dispenser too, making it one of the best pet cameras you can find. Invest in the add-on PawCall and your dog can call you and play “brain games” with you. It might seem a little excessive, but what else is a dog to do when they’re left all on their own for eight hours a day?
2. Petcube Play Wi-Fi Camera
The Petcube is a more affordable but less “fancy” alternative to the PetChatz HD camera system, which we have also previously reviewed to show off its features. This is one of the most popular dog cameras among pet owners, and it comes with a 1080p video with 2-way audio and night vision, so you can check up on your pup even in the dark and the accompanying app is compatible with iOS and Android. It doesn’t have the bells and whistles of the PetChatz system but it does feature an interactive laser pointer toy which will probably force your cat to interact with your dog while you’re gone.
3. Furbo Dog Camera
Last pet camera on the list, the Furbo Dog Camera is a middle ground between the PetChatz system and the Petcube with a higher price tag than Petcube for additional features, and you can check how all of those features work in our full video review here. It’s a great choice for pet owners looking for something slightly different.
A full HD WIFI pet camera that includes 2-way audio, this interactive video check-in system lets you toss out a treat to your pup while you’re gone. Although, if your dog is like a certain Labrador we know, they’d have the thing destroyed and all of the treats eaten in no time! The Furbo is compatible with Alexa, unlike the other two systems we mentioned above. If you’re curious how this camera compares to other popular options, check out this camera comparison where each system was tested against each other.
4. Paws & Pals Automatic Ball Launcher Toy
Best Deal: $79.95 ($9.95 shipping)
If you’re like us then you’ve likely been duped by “ball launchers” before only to find out that their interpretation of the word “launch” means rolls across the floor a few feet. The Paws & Pals Automatic Dog Ball Launcher Toy isn’t that kind of launcher. In fact, this doggy ball launcher has three settings and can launch your pup’s favorite tennis ball 10 feet, 20 feet, or 30 feet. It’s the perfect solution to what we refer to as “Retriever Arm” and it’ll make sure your hyperactive pup is nice and quiet by bedtime. If you’re looking for a cheaper dog ball launcher alternative, we have previously tested and reviewed the iFetch Too Interactive launcher.
5. Ruffwear Grip Trex All-Terrain Paw Wear
We can hear you already, “my dog doesn’t need shoes!” Well, if you are a hiker, a runner, an off-road rambler, or someone who loves to investigate that latest snowstorm with your dog by your side, they likely do need dog shoes. How much wear and tear, heat and ice do your dogs paw pads put up with while you’re out and about? No, these aren’t for your average everyday walk, but if you are an active dog owner your dog will continue to worship the ground you walk on for investing in this perfectly customizable paw wear. The Ruffwear brand is at the top of its game with their products, and their dog shoes were rated as one of the best dog shoes available on the market today.
6. Sleepypod Clickit Terrain Safety Harness
As one of the top-rated crash tested safety harnesses for dogs, this is a must-have for every pup that sits in the backseat of the car. You wear your seatbelt and your dog needs one too. This is one of those products that your dog might not know that they want, but they do need it because it could ultimately save their life. Given how dog car seats aren’t always that safe in every situation as explained here, a crash tested dog harness will work much better at keeping your pooch injury-free in case of a car accident. And while there’s a large number of car harnesses for dogs, there are only three dog car harnesses that were proven to be safe during a collision.
7. PetSafe Solvit Car Cuddler
While we’re on the subject of car safety for dogs while taking longer trips, we’re pretty sure that your pooch needs one of these safe car seat covers. Unlike the many other simple design hammock back seat coversthat prevent your Fido from seeing what’s going on in the front seat (we all hate that!) and those generic bench seat covers that let your dog slip and slide, the Car Cuddler has a bolster support. Designed to keep your pup from slipping off the edge of the seat – which shouldn’t happen if you invest in the above mentioned Clickit or other dog harness), the Car Cuddler provides security as well as comfort and somewhere to rest your pet’s head.
8. Kuranda Dog Bed
Even dogs that seemingly love to destroy their pet beds deserve to have somewhere comfy and cozy to sleep. The Kuranda range of elevated dog beds is the perfect solution for those young and middle-aged chewers because it’s completely chew-proof, unlike many others that claim to be, and has been rated as the most indestructible dog bed you can find. Plus, as an elevated bed, it ensures that your dog gets plenty of air circulation while they’re sleeping. There is a range of sizes and colors available in this bed so you can add a little style to your dog’s bed even though you’re going with a chew-proof option.
9. ZenCrate for Anxious Dogs
Best Deal: $575.00 ($75.00 shipping)
Before you balk at the price of the ZenCrate (which makes it the most expensive item on this list) we should mention that this is a dollar amount worth spending if you have a severely anxious dog. Designed to battle separation anxiety in dogs as well as noise phobias, and other generalized dog anxiety, the ZenCrate has a vibration option, a fan for white noise and ventilation, and has a motion activated music feature.
The dog crate can also be fitted with a special memory foam bed and WIFI HD cameras to monitor your anxious pup when you’re not home. The crate also features a removable door and has a battery backup option so your anxious dog is covered no matter what happens. We know that not everyone has the budget to stretch to the ZenCrate and would rather go with regular soft dog crate, but keep in mind that it’s the equivalent of the years of prescription medications without the side effects and it’ll last your dog’s lifetime.
10. Snoozer Luxury Forgiveness Pet Sofa
If you have a senior dog or a dog who is unsteady on their feet, the chew-proof Kuranda Bed mentioned above isn’t the ideal solution for your pup. Instead, we recommend trying the Snoozer Luxury Forgiveness Pet Sofa. We happen to have experience with this dog bed with one of our senior pups on staff and we can’t begin to tell you how amazing it has been. Not only does the bolster hold up without flattening over time, but the springy and supportive mattress, the bed cover, and the bolsters are all fully washable. This is particularly beneficial if your dog has problems with incontinence, even if they don’t, it’s a great way to keep your dog’s bed smelling fresh all the time.
11. Ruffwear Swamp Cooling Vest for Dogs
With summer quickly approaching, the Ruffwear Swamp Cooler vest is a must-have on your dog’s wishlist this year. As mentioned above, Ruffwear is a company that makes the highest quality dog products and is popular among pet owners, with this vest being the best dog cooling vest available on the market. Designed to keep your dog cool on those hot summer evenings when the sun has gone down and it’s still a little walk when you head out for your evening walk. Ruffwear Swamp Cooler cooling dog vest is a particularly good solution if you have a long-haired, thick coated, or a senior dog who can suffer more in the heat and all you need to do is soak the vest in cold water before putting it on your pup!
12. Outward Hound Dog Life Jacket by Kyjen
Summertime means time at the beach, on the lake, or at the Outer Banks and that means plenty of time in the water for your pup. Although your dog may be able to swim, we recommend investing in the Outward Hound Dog Life Jacket by Kyjen to ensure water safety. Just like us, our dogs can get overwhelmed in the water, get distracted, or get caught up and a lifejacket could very possibly save their life. Of all the options available, we like the Kyjen because it features a small pad that sits under your dog’s chin to keep their head above water too. If you’re looking for alternatives, take a look at other dog life jackets available, some of which can be just as good and either pricier or cheaper.
13. KONG Wobbler Treat Dispensing Dog Toy
Perhaps one of our favorite items on this list, the KONG Wobbler toy is a must-have for any and every dog. And who doesn’t know KONG toys, and their popular options that almost any canine loves? Much like the Boppo the Clown inflatable toy of the 1980’s, the KONG Wobbler is not only as famous but also has similarly weighted bottom that keeps it springing back up after your dog knocks it down to get the treats you hide inside. We love this popular dog toy for keeping those busy pets happy as well as for slowing down those chowhounds who inhale their food causing trouble for themselves. Why will your dog love it, however? Because it interacts with them as they play!
14. Ruffwear Front Range Harness for Dogs
Best Deal: $39.95
Yet another product from the Ruffwear company that cannot be mentioned on a list of Amazon dog supplies your pooch wants is the highest quality dog harness. The bottom line is that your Fido hates being led around by a collar that tugs on their neck, and more importantly, collars are less safe for walking dogs. That’s why we recommend investing in any decent quality dog harness and the Ruffwear Front Range harness is by far one of our favorite options and it’ll be yours and your pet’s too.
Designed to prevent excessive pulling, this harness has two leash attachment points that distribute the “pull” your dog experiences from regular leash walking and has a padded interior that makes it comfortable for your dog to wear, and it’s been rated as the best no-pull harness on the market today.
15. PUPTECK Foldable Dog Swimming Pool
When summer heat hits, your dog wants few things as much as they want to stretch out in a nice cool pool, and there’s no better way to cool down your pet than some water in a shade. That’s where the PUPTECK foldable dog swimming pool comes in. Unlike other pool options, this one is designed with dogs in mind and folds up for easy and fast storage and transportation. One of our favorite features of this doggy pool, though, is the non-slip bottom that is durable enough to withstand claws but textured to prevent slipping and sliding. It’s a cheap and affordable option for any backyard, especially if you cannot afford the more expensive proper dog pools that could cost upwards of $200-$300.
16. Snuggle Puppy New Puppy Starter Kit
Final pick on the list is something for a newbie pet owner. If you have a very young pup in the house, the Snuggle Puppy new puppy starter kit is the perfect welcome home gift for the dog and yourself (or for someone who just adopted a dog). This puppy starter kit comes with a Snuggle Puppy toy that has a removable heartbeat mechanism, reheatable heating packs, a soft blanket and a couple of chew toys. The idea behind the Snuggle Puppy is that it provides something similar to the mother’s heartbeat to soothe new puppies, but it also works for older dogs seeking comfort too. This pack also contains some of the most essential dog supplies a new pet owner with a young puppy may require.
