Bathing and brushing go hand in hand with this shampoo-dispensing brush from Maxbone. The silicone brush has a vessel to hold shampoo that slowly empties as you wash your pup, massaging the soap into their fur for a deep clean that leaves them looking great.

"My puppy is food obsessed," comments writer Stella. "She will finish her dinner in 35 seconds or less — I've timed her. These single-ingredient Sweet Potato Jerky treats not only take her a long time to chew through, but they also don't trigger any of her allergies. I love that they are organic, minimally processed, and sustainably grown."

Fable Pets

Fable's The Game is designed to replicate the experience of hunting prey, making it the ultimate kibble-dispensing toy. With a bowling-pin-like bob, the egg-shaped toy wobbles as it's prodded and rolled by your furry friend, which releases bits of kibble or treats. With multiple complexity settings, The Game is endlessly versatile and will keep any doggo occupied. Bonus: It's 20 percent off for National Pet Day!

"Whether I am taking it on the go with me or using it to feed my pup dinner at home, the ZeeBowl's adjustable base and removable (and dishwasher- and microwave-safe) feed bowl make this pet essential more versatile than any other I've owned," says writer Stella. "Plus, it's just so much prettier than metal alternatives."
