Pamper Your Pet: Four Must-Haves for Your Canine Companion

Our four-legged friends are part of our family and because of the connection we feel with our pets, we want to give them the best lives possible. That, of course, includes some serious pampering. We love things like a spa day, a tasty treat, or a little something that makes us feel special, and so do our pets. We’ve chosen a handful of ways to pamper your pet, from the simple to the indulgent.




This one is a no-brainer, really. BarkBox is a monthly subscription at a very reasonable price ($21-29/month) that provides your dog with an automatic dog party.


BarkBox is a monthly adventure, starring you and your dog! With a new theme every month, each BarkBox opens up to a whole new world.


Past themes have included New York City; Chewrassic Bark; The Good, The Bad, and the Pugly; Throwbark Thursday; Bento & Blossoms; and, Sniffin’ Safari. If you’re not quite convinced, search #BarkBoxDay and see the joy from real pets receiving their monthly BarkBox. You may find that you enjoy it so much that you’ll want to give a gift subscription to the dogs of your friends and family.

For the lover of all things modern, we present The Pad. This handmade outdoor dog house is a perfect accent to any yard, but especially one with a modern design. You can purchase it ready-to-go as-is, or ModularDog will customize it for you with your own colors or materials, for an extra charge. As pictured, it’s made of pine with adjustable aluminum legs and a latex paint finish. While you’re browsing Etsy, you’ll want to see some of the other items that ModularDog has available as well, they’re talented and clever and clearly love dogs.

So often, we’re forced to leave our pets at home alone leaving us to wonder, what are they up to? PetChatz ensures that we don’t need to worry or even wonder anymore. More than just a pet camera, PetChatz allows you to communicate with your pet and even dispense a treat for them. They’ve even added a new accessory, the PawCall which allows your pet to call you. Not to worry though, you’ll set up a schedule through their web app and the paw-shaped light on the PawCall button will blink and let your pet know it’s time to call you.

Cat Exercise Wheel

Okay, we just had to sneak in one treat for our feline friends (you could use one of these for a small, hyper dog, too). One Fast Cat has created this sleek Cat Exercise Wheel that will keep your cat active and happy and won’t compromise the design of your home.


There have been more and more tests showing that cats kept inside can become bored and develop cat depression and other psychological problems. These issues can present themselves in many ways such as destroying furniture or not using litter boxes. In field testing our cat wheel has proven to not only enhance the physical well-being of our cats but altered their disposition to be more relaxed and calm.


Pampering our pet is one of the easiest and most rewarding things we can do. Aside from buying new things for your home, consider learning about pet massage and its benefits, your dog or cat will really appreciate it. Which of our pet pampering suggestions will you be buying for your lovable companion? Want more ideas?  Try our picks for the best pet furniture as well!
