      Just 29 Problem-Solving Products From Amazon You Should Probably Own If You Have A Dog

      From picking up poop to dealing with shedding season, we've got you covered.

      We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed collects a share of sales and/or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

      1. A slow feed bowl for the pup who doesn't understand that chewing is part of the digestive process. The maze pattern gently encourages eager doggos to savor their food, while preventing bloating and upset stomachs.

      Promising review: "Not only is this bowl super cute...it works! My 4-month-old golden retriever/great pyrenees puppy would inhale her food. She would eat roughly two cups of kibble in about five seconds. I tried only giving her small amounts at a time but it never stopped her from inhaling it. Which always resulted in her throwing it up whole. She wouldn't even chew it. Now with this new bowl it forces her to slow down to get her food in between the grooves. We love it! It's taken her about 10 minutes." —Diane

      Get it from Amazon for $9.13 (available in four sizes).

      2. A lightweight, adjustable doggie backpack that active puppers can take on hikes and long walks with them. The breathable mesh material ensures your pet won't overheat while carrying around their essentials.

      Promising review: "Got tired of carrying water for Hobbes, so this was the perfect solution! He got used to it very quickly, and it can easily hold two to three 16.9-oz plastic water bottles on each side. Might even be able to fit four in each 'saddle-bag.' The metal ring near the handle works great to tether to a leash, it's held in place if my dog tugs to chase the occasional rabbit or squirrel. Just make sure the bags are weighed down equally and this thing will do the trick!" —Rhett Bushman

      Get it from Amazon for $18.74 (available in sizes S-XL).

      3. A lightweight ball launcher to play endless games of fetch with an energetic doggo even when you're low on energy. Hands-free pickup means you never have to touch a slobbery ball again.

      Promising review: ""If you have a dog, and you don’t have one of these you’re doing it wrong. I’ve had one for all of my dogs, and it is a staple. The ball it comes with is standard, but you can swap for the rubber ones. Mine just chews and pops all of the regular balls, so it is what I do. However, the thrower itself it much more durable, and it makes fetch easier for me since I have a bad shoulder." —Lydia Ehr

      Get it from Amazon for $9.92.

      4. An adjustable seatbelt tether so your best friend can take a ride with you while remaining safely in place. The belt fastens securely to your dog's harness, and clicks into the seatbelt slot so your pup can abide by the rules of the road.

      Promising review: "Was in a car accident yesterday on I-4 outside of Tampa. All cars were stopped and this guy was speeding and did not stop. He hit us and we flew into the median. Luckily, everyone was wearing a seatbelt, including our dog. We have this seatbelt for my 30-lb puppy. I can honestly say this saved her from getting hurt. Can't imagine what would have happened if she wasn't wearing it. I can honestly say this product works since I just went through a car wreck with my dog strapped in. My dog is completely fine today. Highly recommend this product. Have two of these for both cars. Remember to always buckle up your pet!" —Melissa

      Get it from Amazon for $12.95 (available in six styles).

      5. A pack of Greenies dental treats for the doggo who refuses to believe in the existence of a toothbrush. They're vet-recommended, and their texture will help fight plaque and tartar buildup down to the gumline.

      Two dogs waiting to eat greenies dental chews

      Promising review: "These Greenies must be made of magic, because dogs cannot resist them. To us, they don't seem like they would be that delicious--they don't smell like much, and they're sort of smooth and waxy. They're firm, but with a slight give. Sort of like Starburst candy that has dried out for along time, if that makes sense. Unfortunately, they only last about two to three minutes, tops. In fact, an energetic chewer can get through one of these in under a minute if motivated. Nonetheless, they remain a smash hit. So much so that my parents' German Shepherd will 'pay' them with his prize bouncy ball in exchange for a Greenie. If using a bouncy ball as currency isn't cute, I don't know what is." —Replicant

      Get it from Amazon for $14.87+ (available in seven sizes).

      6. An interactive puzzle with different difficulty levels because a bored floof is a floof who will tear up the house. Simply hide treats in the compartments and let your dog sniff them out, keeping them entertained while you do human things.

      A dog analyzing the dog puzzle

      Promising review: "My standard poodle mix who is 10, loves this puzzle. He is difficult to buy for, since almost every puzzle toy I've bought for him is too easy to keep him entertained. This puzzle was challenging for him when I first got it out of the box (I didn't show him how to work the drawers and locks at all as an extra challenge), and it quickly became one of his favorites. This is also durable, as it was tested a few times during his frustrations when he would pick it up and throw it or try to dig the locks apart. I bought this back in February and I've waited to write a review until he finally mastered it to see if it would survive. Overall, a well-made, difficult puzzle for a wicked-smart old man!" —ANWFlock

      Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in four styles).

      7. A stuffing-free squeak toy for the destructive doggo who consistently turns your living room into a graveyard of fluff.

      Promising review: "My dachshund destroys every toy she gets. These dog toys by Petstages are her absolute favorites and last the longest. They have two different squeakers that make their unique sound. Whenever she does finally rip them apart, stuffing doesn't go everywhere. This is probably her ninth toy like this over the years. Highly recommend!" —mattbakerrr

      Get it from Amazon for $6.39+ (available in sizes S–L and three styles).

      8. A grooming brush to detangle the fur of your hekka floof before they shed all over the house. The rotating metal teeth help to remove mats and loose hairs from your dog's undercoat without any fuss.

      Promising review: "I wish I could give this thing 7 stars, but 5 will have to do. I was able to pull entire sheets of undercoat out of our husky without disturbing the topcoat. I've never had anything work so well. It's even easier to keep the fur pile together. The fur stays clumped, instead of getting spread out and floating around like with the blade-style FURminator. This thing really digs the loose stuff out so much faster and easier." —pvfjr

      Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

      9. A durable rubber ball that you can stuff with treats for endless hours of fun. Even if your dog has a reputation for destroying toys, this guy won't be so easily defeated.

      A pit bull chewing on the treat ball

      Promising review: "I was searching for a great toy for my pit bull (8 months old) and decided on this toy. He is a chewer, and destroys anything he can rip apart. I went with the green X-large size ball, and he just loves it. It has some weight to it, and he still picks it up and runs around with it with ease. I try to only let him play with it while supervised, and so far it is still in one piece...after a month now." —DZ

      Get it from Amazon for $4.95+ (available in five sizes).

      10. An absurdly cute waterproof dog raincoat with a hood so your pupper can stay dry on rainy walks. The back has a hole so you can still attach your dog's leash to their collar, and reflective strips on the coat ensure your pupper will be seen, even on dreary days.

      A dog happily wearing the rubber ducky raincoat

      I can personally attest to the fact that my 6-month-old mini poodle ups his adorable factor by ten whenever he puts on his rubber ducky raincoat.

      Promising review: "Our 75-pound collie mix fits just right in the XL raincoat! The adorable hood covers his head and the coat goes all the way to his booty. The Velcro is super durable so I don’t have to worry about it coming off during our walks. Material is super lightweight. My only wish is that it had another opening on the back to attach the leash to a harness instead of just a collar, since he is quite the puller with a collar." —Adam

      Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available IN sizes S–XL and 14 different prints).

      11. A stick chew toy made from bendable wood fiber that'll mimic the texture of real wood. If your doggo is a stick chewer, they'll be none the wiser.

      A dog chewing on the stick toy

      Promising review: "My bulldog loves these wooden chew toys. A few months ago she started acting up and eating the wood siding shingles off the house and part of our Jacuzzi deck. We would fix it and it would happen again. She had a lot of toys so we knew she was not just bored. I asked our dog trainer what to do and he suggested we give her sticks as toys since she seems to like chewing wood. We tried that, but the sticks would get broken or thrown away by the gardeners. So, when I came upon this real wood toy I had to try it. It is amazing! She loves it and she has not chewed any wood off the house since we got the first one about a month ago. I just came back to buy a second one so she can have her favorite toy inside the house too. She is so happy with it!" —Amazon Customer

      Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in sizes XS–L and five styles).

      12. A pack of Greenies pill pockets so you can cleverly hide your dog's medicine in a delectable treat they'll be excited to eat.

      amazon.com, amazon.com

      Promising review: "I spent so much money trying to find a glucosamine supplement my mastiff would eat. Chewables, liquid broth to pour over the food, hiding the tablets in cheese, lunch meat, or just shoving them down his throat. That stuff is very expensive and he needs several for his weight so not just one pill. I tried these as a last resort and just laughed thinking he would obviously not touch them. Nope! Literally the cheapest option and that dumb dog thinks he's getting a treat every time. I've been fighting this for a YEAR and I could have just fooled him with this crap? Unreal. Also, he's excited about the first one so I can fool him by sticking two pills in the first pocket since he swallows it whole." —Mindy Pfeiffer

      Get it from Amazon for $5.79+ (available in three sizes).

      13. A doggie life jacket to keep your furry friend's head above water during diving practice. Reflective strips make sure your pup can be seen in dark waters and a top handle helps you pull them out when they're too stubborn to leave themselves.

      Promising review: "Great life jacket! I ordered this for my mini long-haired dachshund, who tries hard but is not a strong swimmer. He's able to stay afloat with this vest (we're still working on keeping his head above water, but the neck piece on this vest helps a lot). We ordered a size small. For reference, he is only 9 pounds (which is in range for size XS), but all of his measurements put him in the small range. I was worried it would be too big, but he fits (almost) perfectly in the small since the straps cinch him in. It's a little big in the back, but he's still young so he's got room to grow." —Kristina Circelli

      Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and three colors).

      14. A natural ear treatment designed to fight ear infections and inflammation caused by bacteria, viruses, and yeast. The no-sting formula will keep your pup and their ears nice and happy.

      Promising review: "I was hoping this eat drop was everything everyone said it was. Thankfully this drop has been life-changing for us. My 1-year-old has had ear infection after ear infection for at least seven months. Just like everyone else we tried multiple different treatments, doctors visits, etc. and no relief. It may appear to go away, but comes back quick and bad. She always scratched it til it was bleeding. I was so excited to get these drops in the mail. As soon as they arrived I started treating her. She has made huge improvements! Before now, she wouldn't even let me look at her ear. Her ear was swollen and bloody, now it looks just like the other one! She is so much happier now! Will definitely continue using this product to keep my baby girl happy and healthy!" —KrisBarn

      Get it from Amazon for $21.99.

      15. A sturdy, swiveling pooper scooper for raking up pup presents from grass, dirt, or pavement. When you're ready to go foraging, place an Arm & Hammer bag over the bin, pick it up, and tie the bag before you have time to even think of what's inside.

      Promising review: "With three dogs, two small and one large, scooping the yard is a never ending job. But with the Arm & Hammer swivel bin and rake, there is no more bending to pick up the doggy droppings. I am able to easily use the rake to push the droppings into the bag covered bin. When I am done cleaning up the yard, I just simply remove the plastic bag from the scoop, tie it off, and dispose. I do spray the rake off with the hose sprayer and then clip the rake onto the scooper for easy storage. I really like this handy scooper. It makes a very icky job much easier to handle." —Kelly Eldred

      Get it from Amazon for $17.95.

      16. A stain and odor remover spray made with an enzymatic formula because accidents happen, but you don't want the memory of them left in your carpet.


      I can say from my own experience that this stuff really works. Even though my puppy is mostly trained, he still thinks it's a good idea to pop a squat over our new, white carpet. Luckily, we whip out this bad boy and it gets rid of the stains and smell everytime.

      Promising review: "With having a new puppy in the house we had to get something that would remove the "accidents" and not smell like chemicals. I have tried several products in the past and they do not work and were a waste of money. This product is amazing. It cleans up the poop stains and takes away the smell. Some of the stains I have had to spray more than once; but I chalk that up to our carpet being old. Kinda pricey and a bit more than I wanted to pay but until my little guy gets house broken I will continue to buy this." —Kindle Customer

      Get it from Amazon for $5.06.

      17. A muddy paw cleaner that'll keep your dog from making their mark all over your new furniture. Fill the cup up with some warm water after your pup's had a muddy jaunt in the garden, then gently plunge their paw in and out, allowing the soft bristles to clean the dirt away.

      A dog&#x27;s paw before and after being dipped into the muddy paw cleaner

      Promising review: "We live in a 1,000-square-foot apartment with hardwood floors in downtown Chicago, and our two 35-pound springer spaniels go outside six or more times each day, for exercise and to 'do their duty.' We've grown weary of them tracking dirt, salt, etc., all over the place. We've tried wiping their paws and this only dries them, but does nothing to clean. This thing really works! First of all, the Paw Plunger has an 'aperture' seal on the top, that keeps most of the water inside the receptacle. Secondly, it has scrubby brushes inside to remove grit, salt, dirt, etc. Thirdly, the handle on the side is very useful — instead of just dipping a dirty paw into a bucket of water, something that even the most chillaxin' pooch might have a problem with, you just hold the dog's paw and leg stationary, and move the Paw Plunger up and down via the handle. Genius!" —Dennis M.

      Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

      18. A jar of all-natural calming chews for the doggo who gets a little bit nervous from time to time. If your pup has separation anxiety, weather-related fears, or is showing some nervous behaviors, these treats can seriously help.

      Promising review: "More effective than pharmaceuticals! My dog was on Trazadone and I wanted to try a more natural approach. I have a small terrier (a shelter dog) and found the transition from Trazadone to these calming treats very effective! She had separation anxiety and made 'accidents' in the house and I don’t want to jinx it by saying that problem has been eliminated but I’m hopeful. This is the longest stretch of being accident-free!" —Jessie C.

      Get it from Amazon for $29.96.

      19. A padded no-pull dog harness with two leash attachment loops to train your pup that though squirrels may seem enticing, it's not a good idea to dart after them during walk time.

      A dog going on a walk with the no pull harness

      Promising review: "This is a fantastic harness once you get it adjusted to your dog. My dog was awful to take on walks. He is 70+ pounds and would pull my shoulder out of the socket if he saw a squirrel or anything else that needed to be investigated/chased. By clipping the leash to the front (on the dog's chest), if he pulled, he got spun around towards me... which frustrated him very quickly and stopped the pulling!! It's amazing and I can enjoy taking him for walks now. For the record I did try other methods to get him to walk nicer first, but this one is the best, because he is very stubborn." —the eliminator

      Get it from Amazon for $16.98+ (available in nine colors and sizes S–XL).

      20. A bottle of bitter apple spray, because anyone who has ever had a puppy knows the chewing is endless unless there's a safe solution nearby.

      amazon.com, amazon.com

      Promising review: "I got a puppy puppy. We love him, but literally he tries to chew everything. He chews the clothes on my body, carpet, wood, furniture, my fingers, EVERYTHING. We give him toys and make sure he has proper things to chew on and we spray this stuff anywhere he has a particular affinity to AND IT WORKS. It doesn't smell awful to me and I'm not going to taste it, but the smell alone drives him away from my furniture and carpet. This is a must-have if your dog is a chewer. I have heard some dogs don't mind the taste, but my guy gives me accusing looks every time I spray his favorite bannister rail, my shirt, my fingers, cords, the floor, and anything else he's taken a notion to chew." —Dee

      Get it from Amazon for $5.90.

      21. A rubber broom designed specifically to attract pet hair out of carpet, tile, and hardwood. If your doggo left behind a fur twin during shedding season, this is a must.

      A dog next to a pile of fur removed from the carpet with the broom

      Promising review: "I thought my carpet was clean because I have a full-size 'pet' vacuum, but I can tell that this broom is the only thing able to get deep enough and pull all that hair and dirt out of the fibers. Even works better on my tile floors than a regular broom. It doesn’t kick up dust particles or leave them behind. Also, I feel you can use this instead of your mop since it also has a squeegee and can be cleaned just by rinsing it. So you get a twofer with this." —Nelio

      Get it from Amazon for $12.98.

      22. A leak-proof water bottle so parched puppers can have a quick pick-me-up on the go. The lock button makes sure water stays in the bottle until it's drinking time.

      A dog drinking from the water bottle

      Promising review: "It's very easy to use — just press the button and tilt forward, and water comes out almost like a small waterfall. If your dog doesn't finish what's in the bowl, simply press the button and tilt back, and the water will flow back into the bottle. There are a few drops that won't go in but that isn't a problem at all. The 'stop' button wasn't 100% effective, but the water doesn't leak regardless. The bottle is made of thick, study plastic that seems to combat some of the heat from outside. It was absolutely perfect for my 6-lb Chihuahua. I HIGHLY recommend this bottle!" —Breanna Rodriguez

      Get it from Amazon for $18.99 (available in two sizes).

      23. A pack of environmentally-friendly deodorizing grooming wipes for canine pals who have solemnly sworn off bath time. They're hypoallergenic and formulated with aloe vera and vitamin E to help condition and clean your dog's coat between grooming sessions.

      Two dogs sitting with the pack of grooming wipes

      Promising review: "Love these wipes! We have two large rescue dogs, and one has sensitive skin and grass allergies that make him chew incessantly on his paws. He also HATES baths and pretty much refuses to take one, so these things are a miracle. I used about six wipes on him from nose to tail and he seemed to really enjoy the experience. He was visibly cleaner afterward, with a shiny soft coat and a MUCH more pleasant smell about him! We got the 'unscented' variety due to his sensitivities and there was no adverse reaction. The wipes still have a very light fragrance, though, something that’s clean and fresh; I’m guessing it’s coming from the aloe, awapuhi, and/or some other ingredient. I’ve also used them to wipe out the other dog’s ears and they worked like a charm for that too. I would definitely recommend these to other pet owners. In fact, I think I’m going to get another pack to keep in the car for pet and human use alike!" —Amazon Customer

      Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

      24. A nonirritating eye rinse to gently cleanse away dirt, debris, pollen, and other gunk that can find its way into your dog's eyes. If your dog has issues with tear stains, this stuff'll clean that away, too.

      Promising review: "When we adopted our Maltese a couple of months ago, he had watery and crusty eyes. It was so bad that he couldn’t open his eyes completely. I had tried different products until I came across this one. At first, I didn’t see much progress, but I kept on applying the Nutri-Vet Eye Rinse every day. Slowly, but surely, his eyes were improving. Four months into the treatment I compared before and after photos and realized he had improved dramatically. I strongly recommend this eye rinse; I still use it just to keep his eyes free of debris." —Jaime Castano

      Get it from Amazon for $4.74.

      25. A paw pad moisturizer made with beeswax and vitamin E so your doggo's tootsies no longer suffer from dryness and cracks.

      Promising review: "Used it because my dog would hurt his pads trying to run on hot concrete/asphalt or even in just the grass. His pads would develop blisters fast. It's hard to keep him off of areas where he can get burned easy especially in Texas but this helps a lot. Pictures don't do justice. Also helps with dry cracked noses!" —Sierra D.

      Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

      26. A dental health powder you can sprinkle into your dog's food to fight plaque and tartar build up, while keeping your pup's mouth fresh and clean.


      Promising review: "I started to give this to my schnauzer exactly two months ago. His gum was swollen, and red. Now it looks much-much better, and his breath is much fresher now too. My dog loves the taste, I just pour it to his dry food, and he can't wait to eat. The food itself never gets this reaction. I will definitely buy it again." —Kathleen

      Get it from Amazon for $16.

      27. A Kong toy that'll quickly make all other toys obsolete. Fill it up with treats or kibble, and your dog can chew on this guy, fetch it, and chase it for hours.

      Promising review: "The Kong is the go-to for keeping dogs occupied with their treats. These work well with any kind of treats as long as they fit inside. We have been buying this as a care package for all the foster dogs that my neighbor is fostering." —Kung pow wow

      Get it from Amazon for $7.49+ (available in sizes XS–2XL).

      28. A mini comb so you can gently remove all eye boogers and other stains without the risk of poking your doggo in the peepers.

      Promising review: "My new favorite product for my puppy. He has tear stains that eventually turns into crust and this tool work amazingly to gently remove it. When I try to do it with my fingers I feel like I am hurting him but this tool is absolutely perfect to remedy this. I am so glad I bought this." —Liza Beauchamp

      Get it from Amazon for $5.95.

      29. And an airtight pet food storage vault because your pup deserves a dry and decadent meal, and you deserve not having your home smell like beef kibble.

      A dog waiting to be fed from the food storage vault

      Promising review: "We keep our dog food in a coat closet off the kitchen. Even when food was sealed in an unopened bag, the whole closet (and our coats!) smelled like dog food. So I gave this a try and we have had it for a couple of months so I am ready to review it. It is easy to open/close with the spinning top, and I can tighten it enough that it is impossible for my small children to open, which is awesome! Plastic can absorb smells over time, so before putting any food in the container, I lined it with a plastic garbage bag to keep the container away from the food. And after a few months of use there is ZERO smell of dog food in my closet! I am so pleased with this purchase and highly recommend it to all pet owners!" —Tyler
