Can just one product change your life? Ask any proud pet parent with a pet hair remover tool and they’ll tell you, “Yes!” With this list of 10 things pet owners can’t live without, you’re going to wonder how you ever got along without them.
- Cordless Nail Grinder — According to the Independent, about 44 percent of pet parents would rather cuddle up with their pet than with their life partner. If you’re looking to cuddle up with your pet in bed or on the couch, make sure their nails are groomed so they don’t accidentally scratch you, your partner or your nice sheets. Use a cordless nail grinder to give your dog or cat a much-needed paw-dicure. It can be nerve-wracking to groom your pet’s nails with clippers for fear of getting too close to their nerve endings, but a nail grinder can help with filing down your pet’s nails.
- Pet Hair Remover Tool — As a pet parent, you’re so used to seeing your dog’s fur on your favorite jacket. You’re used to your cat lying down on their spot on the couch, getting up and leaving behind clumps of cat hair. With a portable pet hair remover, you can get rid of fur from your clothing, furniture, carpets and more.
- Hypoallergenic Cleansing Wipes — We don’t always know what kinds of chemicals we’re putting on our pets. Try hypoallergenic, cruelty-free and fragrance-free wipes. These kinds of pet cleansing wipes are specially made to wipe away dirt and dander to keep your pets clean. After your dog is outside playing all day, they’re going to get dirty. Use these wipes to wipe their face, belly and paws. When you don’t have time to give your dog a bath, these wipes will do just the trick. For a little extra cleaning, use a pet hair remover to remove any excess fur after you wipe them down.
- Dog Rocks — How many times have you walked your dog down the street, had them do their business on someone else’s grass and felt bad that their urine left some yellow patches? Use dog rocks that you can place in your dog’s water bowl. They’re 100 percent natural and will help get rid of those urine burn patches on your lawn or anyone else’s.
- Tear Stain Remover Pads — Sometimes your pet gets teary-eyed, and they get those reddish-brown tear stains around their eyes. Even if you groom or bathe your pet frequently, it can still be challenging to actually get rid of those tear stains. Get the pet grooming secret tool: tear stain remover pads. Just use a pad, wipe and voila! Goodbye tear stains, hello fresh-eyed pup.
- Catnip Toys — If your cat is crazy about catnip, get them some catnip toys. Your cat will love playing with this toy that stimulates their senses and calms them down. You’ll love seeing the entertaining effect it has on your cat. If you’ve ever seen a female cat in heat, your cat will experience similar behavior to that. You’ll see a variety of interesting behavior which differs from cat to cat, such as rolling around, flipping over, howling and zoning out.
- Door Shield — Pets are known for clawing and scratching at doors. Maybe it’s because you’re saying “bye” to them for the day. Maybe it’s because your furry friend sees something or someone on the other side of the door. Whatever it is, your door has seen some serious damage to it. Get a door shield to protect your door from scratch marks. They hang on your doorknob and can be cut with scissors to the width you need for your door. If you have company over, you can easily remove it and put it back on.
- Dog Harness — When you walk your dog, are you leading the dog — or is the dog leading you? If it feels like you have to use force or intimidation to pull on your dog’s leash, consider a no pull dog harness instead. It’ll fit snugly on your dog so that they won’t accidentally choke, and they won’t attempt to go much further when they reach the end of the leash.
- Glow-in-the-Dark Leash — If you walk your dog at night or during a cloudy day, get a glow-in-the-dark dog leash. If you tend to walk at night or in areas with heavy traffic, it’s important that oncoming traffic can see you and your dog. A glow-in-the-dark dog leash acts as an extra layer of protection for both of you. Plus, it’s quite fun to look at. You can get them in different colors like bright neon blue or green.
- Ant Repellent Pouch — Because your dog’s bowls are on the floor, their food and treats are in open territory for ants to come marching in and take their snacks away. You don’t want to have a bunch of ants around or in your dog’s food. Get an ant repellent pouch that will safely keep away ants. It’s a safe and natural pouch that will avert ants without the use of poisons or pesticides, keeping both the ants and your pet safe.
