There’s a sea of pet toys and accessories on the market (and likely scattered around your home), but some products are so inventive and unique that they rise to the top, setting themselves apart. From a cozy wool cave that flattens into a bed to a travel water bottle for dogs that holds an entire roll of poop bags, these picks have all garnered tons of five-star reviews from other pet parents — and they start at just $3.


A freezer- & dishwasher-safe silicone mat to keep your dog busy

Spread treats like yogurt, wet food, or nut butter on this licking mat (and freeze it for even longer-lasting results), then attach it to the wall or floor via three suction cups on the back — your dog will be distracted for a long time licking it all off. It’s made from food-grade silicone that’s safe for the dishwasher and freezer.


A rechargeable flopping fish that your cat won’t be able to resist

Whenever your cat touches this flopping fish toy, the built-in motion sensor makes it wiggle around, encouraging your pet to play with it — there are three flopping modes of gentle, normal, and active. It looks like a real fish (it’s nearly a foot long), yet is made from a plush material for easy chewing. This pick is rechargeable via USB and has space for tucking in a pouch of catnip. The fish is washable, too.


This snuffle mat that can be secured to furniture & folds for storage

Made from multiple layers of thick fabric, there are plenty of spots to conceal food and treats in this snuffle mat, allowing your pet to follow their instinct to explore via smell. It’s machine washable for convenient cleaning when it inevitably gets a little messy, and it features buckles that can be used to fold it up for storage or to secure it to furniture if your pup tends to lift snuffle mats off the ground.


A window seat hammock that holds up to 40 pounds

This hanging hammock attaches directly to any window using the four large suction cups, providing your cat with a comfortable spot to lounge. The strong steel frame can support up to 40 pounds, and the waterproof fabric means you can even use it outside if desired.


A sleek poop bag dispenser you won’t mind keeping in easy reach

This surprisingly sleek poop bag dispenser stores up to eight rolls of bags (included with your purchase), plus there’s a dispensing slot at the bottom for simple access to a bag when needed. The plastic unit mounts to the wall using included hardware — and its modern hexagon shape discreetly blends into your decor.


These dishwasher-safe silicone covers for pet food cans

There’s no need to spend money on single-use plastic wrap or aluminum foil to cover your pet’s wet food cans in the fridge — these silicone covers can fit over nearly any size can. And they can be reused again and again, saving you cash in the long run. The covers are dishwasher safe.


This chicken-flavored plaque-reducing gel for dogs in innovative packaging

If you’re worried about your dog’s oral health, grab this chicken-flavored gel that comes in a unique deodorant-like dispenser — it’ll help to destroy bacteria, eliminate bad breath, and prevent gum disease (without any brushing). Use the product twice a week for the best results. “We have tried a few different dental chews, but the funky breath comes back shortly after she’s finished with it. [...] This stuff is amazing! [...] The plaque is almost completely gone. And, it’s incredibly easy to use and she thinks it’s a treat,” wrote one shopper.


A waterproof massaging brush with a removable cover for easy cleaning

Your pet will enjoy the gentle massage they receive from this silicone brush that doubles as a fur collector. The green piece comes right off so you can easily discard the hair once finished.

A de-shedding & de-matting brush that reviewers say is like a magic wand

With 29,000-plus five-star reviews, it’s clear that this de-shedding brush with a grippy handle works as promised. It’s double-sided — the nine-teeth side is best for smooth de-matting, while the 17-teeth side is meant for coat thinning and de-shedding. “It's like a magic wand for dog hair. With each swipe, it's like I'm peeling away a layer of fluffy clouds. It's not one of those brushes that clings onto the fur for dear life. Cleaning it is a breeze. Just a quick shake and it's ready for action again,” wrote one shopper.


This 30-pack of pet wet wipes that eliminate 99.99% of germs
