Dog is Good Gift Set

$34.99; If you have a dog fanatic in your life, Dog is Good is the perfect place to find a gift for any occasion. The “Inspired By Dog” gift set is ideal for encouraging passionate dog lovers to communicate with their human companions from time to time. The set includes six greeting cards with messages like “It’s all fun and games until someone ends up in a cone,” and “What happens in the dog park stays in the dog park.” The set also includes six matching magnets to help the inspiration (literally) stick.

The Perfect Dog Toy

$19.99; The name says it all—literally—as this is, in fact, the perfect dog toy. Made completely of polyurethane, the Perfect Dog Toy is indestructible. The sturdy rubber toy can be chewed and tugged and dragged and tossed and retrieved and everything else dogs do with their favorite things. The bonus, though, is that it’s dishwasher safe, so after a long, slobbery day of play, clean it up and you’re ready for tomorrow!

The Refined Cat Litter Box

$199.99; Let’s just get it out there: Cats are divas, and yet, they’re modest when it comes to taking care of their personal business. If your cat prefers a bit of privacy, the Refined Cat Litter Box is the answer. Disguised as an attractive cabinet appropriate for any living room, the litter box entry is on the side. And when it’s time to empty the contents, easily access the box via the front cabinet doors. When Kitty’s happy, everyone’s happy! Available in three wood stains.

Mountainsmith K-9 Cube

$60; If family travel includes the furriest member of the clan, the K-9 cube is the perfect gift. Included in the 2 lb, 11 oz poly-fabric “cube” are two collapsible bowls for food and water, one PEVA-lined food container for longer trips requiring a travel food bag, and a Frisbee for rest area entertainment. Store clean-up bags in the top pocket and spare treats in the mesh side pockets. Organization made easy!

Molly and Friends Kitty Treehouse

$399.99; Kitties are natural climbers, but what’s an indoor cat to do? Let your feline get her climbing fix with the Molly and Friends Treehouse. Measuring 6 feet, 4 inches, the five-level entertainment complex is the perfect play place for the family cat. And when she tires from the long climb to the top, Kitty can retreat to level 4: the covered house. Made of pine and carpet, the fully-assembled treehouse also includes three toys. Available in three color combinations.
