We’ve come a long way from the days of cartoon-sized dog bones. These days, there are myriad toys and puzzles on the market that can entertain, stimulate, and soothe your dog. If you’re lucky enough to be in the buy-all-the-fun-things stage, we’re here to help. Here are the most game-changing products that come highly recommended from real pet parents.

Btw, our editors (and their pets) picked out these products. They’re always in stock at the time we publish, but there’s a chance they’ll sell out. If you do buy through our links, we may earn a commission. (We’ve got a lot of toys to buy over here, you know?)

As a dog parent, it’s mortifying to reach into your pocket after your dog poops only to find that you are out of poop bags. To avoid finding yourself in that awkward position (and the scanning the sidewalk for leaves or other options for cleaning up after your dog that follows) we suggest signing up for a poop bag and butt wipe delivery that lands on your doorstep every other month. Trust us, there’s no such thing as too many poop bags.  

Curious which breeds make up that perfect mix you just adopted? Your dog isn’t losing sleep over their family tree but discovering their genetic makeup will help you better pet parent. Not only is the breed big reveal exciting (I always knew you had some Chihuahua in you, Taco!), it may also explain some of your dog’s quirks, i.e. why your Aussie Cattle Dog corrals your family like a flock of sheep. Plus, this DNA test screens for more than 200 hereditary conditions so you can tailor your dog’s healthcare to their individual needs. *

* Wisdom Panel and GREENIES are Kinship brands. We think their products are pretty cool, but we don’t play favorites. So, when a product has family ties, we’ll be real with you.
