As a newly minted owner of an adorable Australian Shepherd pup, I can tell you that pets can quite quickly take over your entire life. And what’s so bad about that? The joys of pet ownership are endless — the unbridled excitement when you walk in the door, the furry snuggles, unconditional companionship and the suspense of seeing what trouble they’ll get into next (as long as it doesn’t involve chewing the good shoes beyond recognition).
Pets also provide a host of benefits to their owners’ general well-being including lower blood pressure, reduced stress, improved mental health and, in the case of a dog, increased exercise and social connection. So let’s lavish some love on our furry friends with these amazing finds.
Beagle Dog Sofa
Let sleeping dogs lie… on a really hip sofa that complements your modern décor!
Drinkwell Stoneware Avalon Pet Fountain
Not just any water bowl, this pet fountain continually recirculates and filters your cat or dog’s water. The dual fountains at the top entice them to drink, and the lulling sound helps to keep them calm.
Outward Hound Fun Feeder
Might you have a pet that tends to hurriedly binge at feeding time only to bloat up and need to purge not long after? Poor dear, we’ve all been there. This ingenious dish works to slow down the eating process. The fun maze engages pups and extends mealtimes by up to ten times. There’s a version for cats, too!

And what is an argyle sweater without a handsome bow tie? And perhaps a nautical dog collar by Harry Barker to boot. The West Village is beckoning.
CatGenie Self-Flushing Cat Box
I don’t have a cat, but if I did I would definitely get in on this self-flushing cat box that automatically scoops, liquefies and flushes cat waste away. Kitty will love the always-clean liter — and so will you!
Cat Yoga Mat
Save your sofa and carpet with this yoga mat scratcher. Includes a built-in toy stuffed with catnip.
Purple Chain Leash
It takes a puppy all but a minute to chew through your average nylon leash, but this chain version will definitely keep those canine teeth at bay — and spare you having to worry about Fido getting loose.
Because why have a pet bed when you can have a pet teepee?!

Okay, it’s a little over the top, but this activity center will keep your kitty from going completely bonkers indoors.

And why not throw in some crinkly, catnip-stuffed felt fortune cookie toys to up the excitement to the next level? Lucky kitty.
