Top gifts for dogs and cats
Our favorite picks for tech-savvy pet parents
ur pets give us so much. Show them you care with gifts to help them live a long, happy life. Here are our top picks for your furry family members.
1. An interactive dog toy for feeding and play time
Keep your dog engaged and active with the Kibble Chase roaming treat dropper. This clever toy holds up to half a cup of dry kibble or hard treats and rolls around on the floor dropping snacks at random intervals.
It’s a great diversion for puppies, and also works for dogs who eat too quickly at mealtime. It stops on its own after ten minutes, but is ready to resume the fun as soon as your dog gives it a nudge.
2. A safe, secure ride
The Kurgo Enhanced Strength Vehicle Harness keeps your dog safely in place while you’re on the road. It uses the same technology as rock-climbing harnesses for total security and has a broad, padded chest plate for extra protection and comfort.
This sturdy harness comes in three sizes so you can get the perfect fit for your dog. And as a bonus, it doubles as an everyday harness.
3. An ergonomic feeding system
WeatherTech’s Double Low Pet Feeding System is perfect for messy eaters. The integrated stand and mat have antifungal and anti-microbial properties for safer mealtimes, and the removable bowls are ergonomically designed to give your pet strain-free access to food and water. And the entire system is dishwasher safe.
The 16-oz size is perfect for medium-sized dogs, but this system comes in smaller or larger sizes to accommodate pets of different sizes, and is available in a range of colors.
4. A magic food machine
Your cat or dog deserves perfect portions throughout the day, and the Wi-Fi equipped PetSafe Smart Feed 2nd Generation feeder delivers. Enter mealtimes and amounts into the app and you're set! It's even compatible with Amazon Echo devices, so you can ask Alexa to help with feeding.
5. Instant recreation for curious dogs
The Ricochet is a fun interactive game for your dog consisting of two durable egg-shaped toys that "talk" to each other by emitting squeaking sounds. Place them up to 30 feet apart on the floor, and when your dog moves one of them, the squeak automatically jumps to the other.
Going after the moving squeak can provide your dog with exercise and mental stimulation, especially on days when the weather keeps you and your pup indoors.
6. A steady supply of fresh, flowing water
The sound of running water entices pets to drink, so they’re much more likely to stay well-hydrated with a fountain. PetSafe’s Seaside stainless pet fountain has an ultra-quiet design, and is perfect for cats or small dogs.
7. Feline entertainment
The Frolicat Bolt laser toy attracts cats' attention instantly. Turn it on and it automatically moves the laser in random patterns for 15 minutes before shutting down on its own. Even the laziest cats will get in some good exercise with this interactive toy.
8. Better access for your dog
The PetSafe Happy Ride Folding Dog Ramp helps dogs who struggle to get in and out of the car on their own. It's stable with a textured surface for good traction. And it folds up for in-vehicle storage when not in use.
9. Freedom to go in and out
We want our pets to get fresh air and exercise, but we also want to keep them safe. PetSafe’s Microchip Cat Door is a great way to do both. It lets your cat come and go at will, while keeping out unwanted strays and wildlife.
The door opens only for pets you have programmed in. It can read your cat’s microchip — or you can pick up an optional microchip collar tag if your cat isn't microchipped — and allows indoor/outdoor access, with limits set by you.
