Got a pandemic puppy or a quarantine cat? You’re not alone. Tons of people are adopting new pets — and figuring out that the cost of buying toys, beds, treats, and pet tech adds up quickly. To keep you from spending your entire paycheck on your four-legged friend, we’ll be compiling a list of the best pet deals weekly so you can be the best pet parent ever — even if you’re on a budget.
Does your dog howl a lot? Are they a total sniff-a-holic? You might think these funny behaviors are just normal dog habits, but they might actually be specific to your dog’s breed. Unlocking your pup’s breed makeup gives you a ton of info on their personality, health predispositions, and more. This Embark kit tests for over 350 different breeds, and will even tell you if your pup is part coyote or wolf.
Let’s say you want your dog to be cozy, but you also want their bed to match your stylish home decor. Checking both boxes might sound like a far-off dream, but Paw.com’s rug beds actually fit the bill. With a removable, washable cover, memory foam inner, and a design that’s meant to look like a decorative rug, these beds are the all-in-one pet product you’ve been looking for. You can also score up to 70% off every bed on the site, during Paw.com’s Fall Sale.
The original Whistle Go model gives you real-time GPS tracking, location alerts, and health/ activity monitoring for the spoiled pooch in your life. The battery lasts for 10 days on a single charge, you’ll get on-demand vet help through the companion app, and the current $28 discount isn’t too shabby. While it requires a monthly subscription, this is a great product to have if your dog is an escape artist or needs a little help getting active.
If you have your eyes on the discounted Whistle Go, pick up this compatible collar while you’re at it. It’s made of durable nylon and is designed as a secure mount for Whistle Go and Whistle Go Explore devices. Choose from three different sizes and six fun colors to match your pup’s personality.
If your dog or cat likes to sleep curled up like a little bagel, this cozy bed will make them feel like they’re wrapped in a warm hug. The outer cover is removable and can be machine washed for easy cleanup, and the high-bolstered design will keep your dogs joints supported through the night. This jumbo size is ideal for pets up to 35 pounds, but if you have a smaller pet, the standard size is also on sale (scoop one up for $23.60) and is good for pets up to 25 pounds.
We all know that cats are the true royalty of the house, so give them a good vantage point to look over their kingdom with this cat perch. It sticks to the window with suction cups and is secure enough for your cat to lay on it all day long. The two shelves also fold up, so it can be used even if you have curtains or blinds on your window.
If you’re tired of just saying that your dog is a mutt, the Wisdom Panel Premium will give you the exact breakdown of your pooch’s breed — down to 1%. Wisdom Panel tests across a huge variety of dog breeds, so even if your dog is a super rare international breed, you’ll still be able to find out their lineage. (It’s also one of our top picks for the best doggie DNA tests on the market.)
The Wisdom Panel Premium kit comes with handy health testing too, and will check your dog’s vision, weight, mobility, any potential drug sensitivities, and more. It’s basically the protective pet parent’s dream.
If your dog loves to play fetch, a slobbery ball is pretty much inevitable. But with a ChuckIt!, you’ll never have to touch a gross ball with your hands again. It also helps you throw the ball faster and further, so your pooch can run at top speed and wear themselves out. Like they say, a tired dog is a well-behaved dog.
If your pet is known for horking down their food, this PetSafe pet feeder can help. With a slow feed option that dispenses food over 15 minutes, which will help digestion. It’s great for cats and dogs, can schedule up to 12 meals per day, and can dispense up to four cups of food at a time — so you can schedule feedings for big dogs, too.
Another way to monitor your pet while you’re away from home, this Petcube camera comes with built-in Alexa and a fun laser toy (cat owners, rejoice). Control the laser toy remotely with your phone, or set it to auto-play mode to give your pet some activity while you’re busy at work. You’ll also be able to chat with your dog or cat thanks to two-way audio, and get sound and motion alerts so you’ll know immediately if something is amiss.
