1. iDogmate Smart Automatic Dog Ball Launcher Toy
Let your pup run her heart out chasing toy balls while you sit back and enjoy the show with the iDogmate Smart Automatic Dog Ball Launcher Toy. This launcher sends balls into the air at 10, 20, 30, and 35 feet, and has four different distance settings. The felted balls are easy on your pup’s teeth and gums, and the toy’s rechargeable Li-ion battery lasts for up to 250 ball launches. Quiet and portable, this automatic dog ball launcher toy is perfect for active pups whose pet parents’ arms need a break once in a while. Available for small breed dogs, too!
User review: “Within a few minutes of pulling it out of the box our 3 year old lab figured it out. She will not stop playing it. Thankfully it has an off button. She however jumps in front of it the second she knows when it is going to launch. She’s already learned the sound it makes and knows when the ball will fly out. She excitedly dances around waiting for it and then at the last second jumps in front and catches it within a foot or so.” - Mark K.
2. SureFeed Microchip Small Dog & Cat Feeder
Holiday indulgences can lead to excess...well, everything, and no pet parent wants that for their dog (or cat, for that matter)! If you have more than one dog or cat, and they love to mooch each other’s food whenever they get a chance, that can be problematic, and in some cases, unhealthy. Add in a pet parent’s stress of keeping food separated from the other pup, and you’re looking at a not-so-peaceful holiday season.
Solve your pup food problem with the SureFeed Microchip Small Dog & Cat Feeder. You can program this feeder to open only for a designated pet by reading the pet’s microchip ID or by using the included RFID collar tag. Programmable for up to 32 pets, this feeder is ideal for dogs on restricted or prescription diets.
User review: “I have 2 of these feeders. One for my cat and one for my dog. They are great for keeping them from eating each other's food. Very short learning curve for them both also. I will be buying another one when I get another dog.” - FurbabiesMom
3. Wyze Cam Pan 1080p HD Pet Camera With Live Stream & Pan, Tilt & Zoom

The Wyze Cam Pan 1080p HD Pet Camera connects easily to your mobile device and lets you peek in on your pets from anywhere. The camera rotates vertically and horizontally, allowing you to watch your pet from across the room. It features a two-way audio component so you can speak to your pet and remind her how much you love and miss her, and could she please get off the couch? The Wyze Cam Pan Camera also includes a night vision option so you can check in on your pup’s nocturnal adventures.
User review: “I purchased this camera as I have a dog with severe separation anxiety and will have to be gone from home a few hours a day. This camera allows me to watch him and his surroundings, talk to him, record, take pictures, etc. It's AWESOME. The camera quality is AMMMMAAZING for the price point and it has the ability to tilt and rotate. It seriously was 100% worth the investment. Even when he's gone, I'll probably never NOT have one. It brings me such peace of mind.” - TimWatch22

User review: "I have a 7 pound very hyper Toy Yorkie. I had seriously reservations about this working for my dog. Well, it worked! I pretended to leave the house and left the RelaxoPet PRO Dog on. I waited a little while and when I checked on him he was laying in his bed completely content. Ever since that day I have been using it when I leave the house and he is doing great!" - NaeL
