The K&H Original Bolster Pet Cot Elevated Dog Bed is the best dog bed we tested.

Best Dog Bed
K&H Pet Products Original Bolster Pet Cot

Cots tend to have a specific, built-in audience, being great outdoor options for keeping canines cool while lounging in the sun. They’re also popular among the elderly pet set, or owners of pups with orthopedic issues, since they don’t need to heave themselves up and down from the floor. But the K and H Original Bolster Pet Cot Elevated Dog Bed expands its reach with a puffy, removable, wrap-around bolster, which adds neck and back support for dogs of all sorts, and adds serious smush-appeal, for animals that like to burrow and nest.

A mesh center helps circulate air, while a water-resistant nylon cover presents an obstacle for enthusiastic chewers, and resists bacteria, mildew and mold. It can be easily assembled and taken apart without tools—a big plus when it comes to transporting, storing or cleaning the washing-machine safe cover and bolster—although the whole thing can also simply be wiped or hosed down. The bed includes skid-free rubber feet, which both assures its stability, and keeps it from scuffing up the floors in your house, comes in three sizes, and is rated to hold up to 150-pounds of pup. There’s even a line of replacement covers available, including cooling and self-warming varieties, as well as a pet canopy, all of which can fit on the same basic frame.

Pros

  • Especially versatile

  • Transforms from a Cot to a Bolster

  • Circulates air

  • Chew and mildew resistant

Cons

  • None that we could find

The Best Friends Deep Dish Cuddler is our favorite for small pets who like to burrow and snuggle.

Best for Small Dogs
Best Friends by Sheri OrthoComfort Deep Dish Cuddler

Burrowers and snugglers will love to cuddle up inside the Best Friends Deep Dish Cuddler; be they dogs, cats, or any animal weighing up to 25 pounds (or 35, if you choose the Jumbo version). High walls promote a sense of security and safety, and flexible, pillow-like contours adjust to your furry friend’s shape. That said, there’s just enough structure to provide orthopedic support, including elevated front and rear bolsters and a flat, waterproof bottom.

Since it’s light and non-ridged, you can take the Deep Dish on trips, in cars, stash it in a closet, or simply drag it to your pup’s preferred place inside the house. The pet-safe fiber stuffing presumably holds its shape up to three times longer than other fillers commonly found on the market, and the entire bed is machine washable. So while the cushy Sherpa cover is quick to collect fur, it’s pretty hassle-free to keep clean. It also comes in an array of colors, such as dark chocolate, teal, fuschia, and light gray lux, meaning your adorable little nugget can snooze away in style.

Pros

  • High sides for security and snuggling

  • Machine washable

Cons

  • Doesn't accommodate larger dogs

Best Smart Feeder
WOpet SmartFeeder

Admittedly, the WOpet automatic feeder is as low-tech as it gets. Yet when it comes to smart models, WOpet’s version ably demonstrates the benefits of having a WiFi-connected machine. Slim, shiny, and attractive, the 17-cup capacity hopper can be fitted with either a small or large food dispenser tray (both of which can be easily removed for refilling or cleaning), so you can accommodate the amount of kibble for any sized pet.

And the common sense app really sticks to the basics. While other models we tried confused the issue by including social media features unrelated to food, WOpet’s sole focus is scheduling regimented meals for your furry friend. Up to six feedings per day (breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks) ranging from 1 to 39 portions can be remotely set or modified, meaning you have control over your pet’s mealtimes from anywhere.

You can record a message to let them know it’s feeding time, while the app will inform you precisely when and if they’ve been fed. The WOpet also has battery backup, in case you lose power to your home. Perhaps the most beneficial extra feature, though, is a night vision capable HD camera with two-way audio, which allows you to view and record video of your pet, as well as listen to or talk with your pet.

Pros

  • WiFi-connected

  • Remotely schedule up to 6 feedings a day

  • Recorded message to tell your pet it’s feeding time

  • 17-cup capacity

Cons

  • Expensive

Best Smart Pet Camera
Furbo Dog Camera

The Furbo is Amazon’s best selling dedicated pet camera, and after spending some time with it, we agree. It’s the best. It's reliable and easy to refill, the video quality is great (day and night), it uses colors a dog can see to let Fido know when you check in, and it looks beautiful on the side table thanks to its bamboo cover.

Going beyond basic motion detection, Furbo uses artificial intelligence to understand exactly what the dog is up to and push a notification to the owner’s phone when the pup is playing or barking, when he stops in front of the Furbo for a “selfie,” or when a human arrives home. These “Smart Dog Alerts” are part of a premium service that, for now at least, is free. This dog camera is also Alexa compatible, so you can ask your Amazon Echo to toss the dog a treat by voice or via the app from wherever you may roam.

It may not have the bells and whistles of more complex models like the PetChatz HD, but what the Furbo does, it does well. The base and apps are a pleasure to use at every point. The Furbo gets it right.

  • Easy to refill treats

  • Works with Alexa

The Epica Pet Nail Clipper is our top pick because of its strength.

Best Dog Nail Clippers
Epica Pet Nail Clippers

The king of clippers, these simple scissors don’t look much different compared to similar clippers, but this model manages to surpass them across the board. Their main strength is, well, strength. While most of our other contenders easily snipped the 1/8-inch dowel we used for testing, this one sliced through the 1/4-inch with ease. That’s why it’s also long been our personal preferred pick for our own dog, whose long, black nails are practically impenetrable. The semi-circular blades surround the nail, allowing you to see precisely where you’re cutting, and a quick guard prevents you from going too far or deep.

The rubber coated handles are comfortable to hold and squeeze, an easy to manipulate safety lock keeps them closed when not in use, and the set comes with a lifetime warranty. Not too shabby for a clipper that only costs $10.

With 35 holes for the perfect fit, the Educator Biothane dog collar is the best dog collar we tested.

Best Dog Collar
Educator Quick Snap Biothane Collar

From tiny puppies to full-grown Great Danes, the Educator Biothane Collar is a true one-size-fits-all collar. That’s because it boasts a whopping 35 holes (more standard collars have five or six), and has a secure and durable metal buckle, which will keep your pup from pulling loose.

To accommodate differently proportioned necks, the collar comes in 3/4- or one-inch widths, and has a 29 1/2-inch strap (18- to 24-inches is more common). The great thing about the extra length is that it can be simply cut down to the desired length, without compromising the integrity of the collar whatsoever.

The Educator is crafted from practically impenetrable neoprene, a highly flexible material that won’t crack or fray. It’s also totally waterproof, so can withstand inclement weather and romps in the mud. It's also easy to clean so it won't mildew and take on that famous wet dog smell. It’s smooth (unlike nylon), so it also won’t scratch at the neck, comes in seven bright colors and is crafted in the U.S.

Pros

  • Highly adjustable

Lead Mate

Best Dog Leash
Lead Mate and Leash Combo

Designed specifically with arthritic or carpal tunnel-plagued owners in mind, the Lead Mate is an ergonomic attachment that ingeniously eliminates hazards that clutching at, tying knots in, or wrapping a leash around your wrist for greater control, can impose. When simply clipped on the desired portion of the leash, the lightweight, no-slip sphere—made of 100 percent recycled ABS plastic—provides superb grip and a thoroughly comfortable hand-hold, allowing walkers to effortlessly deal with pullers, and clearly transmit commands. The Lead Mate can also be used to couple two leashes together for a double dog walk, fasten a leash around your waist for a hands-free jaunt or jog, or used as a tether, for securing a leash to a table at an outdoor cafe.

While you can purchase the Lead Mate with a 6-foot reflective nylon lead with padded neoprene handle, the Lead Mate attachment can be purchased separately and be used with any leash—magically transforming it into one pretty near perfect product.

And as if this weren’t already a strong enough sell for animal lovers, the company donates its products and 10 percent of all profits to animal shelters. Several shelters were also involved with development and initial prototype testing. The Lead Mate comes in five colors, and two models intended to fit either flat or rope leashes.

The Dogline Unimax Multi-Purpose Harness is our best-tested dog harness.

Best Dog Harness
Dogline Unimax Multi-Purpose Harness

A streamlined happy medium between an all-enveloping shell and scratchy tangle of straps, the vest-shaped harness is made of breathable, water-resistant neoprene (which scores extra credit for being washing machine safe) and is padded for comfort, with a removable breastplate.

It's easy to maneuver on and off with a simple click under each front leg, the Dogline fits snugly without being too tight. A heavy-duty D-ring on the back provides good leverage for either casual walks, giving corrections, or communicating with service dogs.

Incidentally, since Velcro strips on the side allow for the attachment of signage, ID’s or tags, this harness is especially useful for working/service dogs, dogs in training, or in any instance when you need to transmit info about your dog to the outside world (such as “Do Not Pet,” or “Adopt Me.”)

A built-in, generously-sized handle allows you to grab the dog if needed, help them up and around obstacles, or provide extra support in the case of injury or impaired mobility. The only downsides are the lack of a front-facing D-ring, and the fact that the thick adjustable straps take some muscle to use.

Pros

  • Includes a handle

  • Comfortable

  • Easy to put on and take off

Cons

  • Straps difficult to use

  • Lack of front-facing D-ring

Best Dog Poop Bags
Pogi’s Poop Bags with Easy-Tie Handles

Our number one when it comes to number two, Pogi’s leak-free bags are extra roomy (clocking in at 7 x 14.5 inches), and eco-conscious—made from oxo-biodegradable plastic that breaks down in 18 months. Though you can purchase basic rolls, the handled variety makes for especially easy tying off and carrying. They don’t fit in an average dispenser, but they’re cleverly designed to dispense directly from the box (which, incidentally, is made from 100 percent recycled materials). And the clean powder scent is actually effective at masking the bag’s contents, so you won’t feel like you’re lugging around poop while wearing perfume.

For Traveling With Your Dog

Sleepypod Air

Best Pet Carrier
Sleepypod Air

While many pet carriers claim to be (mostly) airline compatible, the Sleepypod design specifically addresses all conflicting size and shape restrictions. The Air can compress to fit under a seat during takeoff and landing, but can also expand to allow for extra paw-room during the duration of the flight. If your travels are taking place a little closer to the ground, straps on both sides allow the carrier to be snugly seat-belted into a car... but if you're worried about car safety, take comfort in the knowledge that Sleepypod regularly crash-tests its carriers.

The top and sides of the carrier open completely and are made of polyester mesh, allowing for easy entry, excellent air circulation, and clear sightlines for your pup. Ultra-plush interiors make the carrier ultra-comfy and easy to clean—the padding is machine washable and the polyester liner is water-repellent. The Air folds flat for seamless storage but can also transform into a bed with the help of a snap-on mesh panel. If you really want to make your pup happy, you can even buy a warmer pad (sold separately) to tuck into a pocket underneath. As far as style is concerned, your canine will make quite the chic traveling companion, since the sleek carriers come in eye-popping colors like Orange Dream, Glacier Silver, and Robin Egg Blue.

  • Contracts and expands with ease

One of our favorite things about the Dexas Popware Elevated Feeder is its collapsible legs, which means your pup doesn't have to hunch over.

Best Travel Dog Bowl
Dexas Popware Single Elevated Feeder

We’re all accustomed to giving up some creature comforts when we travel. But being able to drink at a non-hunched over position is critical for the well-being of many dogs, especially when they’re potentially dehydrated and actively exercising on mountains and trails. That’s why we flipped over the clever design of the Dexas, which features not just a collapsible bowl, but extendable legs. When tucked away, the super light unit takes up just 1.5 inches of space. Fully expanded, it boasts a 12-ounce capacity bowl and a set of sturdy legs that allow it to stand about 5 inches off the ground. Not only do the legs keep the bowl from slipping and sloshing, while preventing detritus from gathering in the food or water, they let your pup sip without crouching, which helps prevent neck and back stress, and—perhaps most crucially—bloat. Did we mention the silicone materials are easy to hand wash and are dishwasher safe? Which is to say, there are plenty of benefits to this reasonably priced bowl.
