April 11 is National Pet Day, but in all honesty, isn’t every.single.day of the year National Pet Day?
Pets wear many hats in the lives of their person(s): they’re therapists, confidants, friends, life savers, guides, teachers, and rays of sunshine — all rolled into one adorable being. And there’s simply no end to the benefits they offer, asking nothing in return except love and an occasional scratch on the head. That’s literally it!
But as pet owners, we go above and beyond to ensure their spirits are happy and their bodies are healthy. Here at RetailMeNot, we are positively head over heels in love with our pets. Just seeing their adorable faces throughout the day makes our world brighter. Although some pets are members of our extended families, they’re no less part of our family.
As much as they can cheer you up with a tail wag, these are some of the favorite products that the RetailMeNot pups and cat highly recommend for putting a little pep in your beloved pet’s step:
Abby is a girl who loves the Kong Signature Ball. It’s a red, hard rubber ball with great bounce and a slight squeak. The molded rubber changes shape with use so it doesn’t bounce predictably and Abby loves to chase it around, even on her own. The squeak isn’t loud enough to be too annoying indoors.
As you can see, this Golden Retriever loves the sunshine and hanging out outside with her person. Cali is modeling the red Ruffwear Crag Dog Leash, and according to her mom Mackenzie, it “allows her to go along with me for runs, hands are free to pet and give treats.” Sounds like a winning combo!

The ChuckIt! Sport Ball Launcher is the toy of choice for this guy. From outings at the nearby park to jumping in the air in his backyard, Elvis is getting plenty of exercise with his person, who says, “It’s the best for playing catch!”
Price: $8.96 and up on Amazon
The adorable Keira is a mini Aussie who feels anxious sometimes. To help her cope with these feeling, Keira nuzzles and cuddles up with this soft, floppy Lamb Chop Dog Toy when she’s anxious. Kristin says, “She also takes it on walks with her. It’s basically her security toy. Her loving human minions keep extras on hand at all times, in case she loses her Lamb Chop on a walk, so she’s never without.”
The sweet-faced boy Finley raves about the Serta Dog Bed, as he considers it go to when he needs to close his peepers or just chill. Finley’s dad Austin says, “It’s the best product for daytime naps and sleepovers. Durable, long-lasting product and supportive for comfortable sleeping.”

This girl looks like she’s ready to hear anything you need to get off your chest. But in between therapy sessions, Kali loves playing with her BARK Puppy Guppies Tennis Ball Groupers. Mom Stephanie says, “She loves that these are a mix of a tennis ball and a stuffed animal. Something about the little fins and faces makes her go crazy!” Let us know when she has time on her calendar for an appointment.

This little Yorkie weighs in at a mere 6 pounds — but don’t let her size fool you. Minnie won’t let a plush elephant get away from her without putting up a fierce battle — in between naps. No other toy can play substitute to her KONG® Kiddos Comfort Elephant Dog Toy. She spends her days dropping it at my feet then staring intently until I throw it, or playing as a party of one to her own toss and catch game. We have several on standby.
Mr. Orpheus is the only feline in a sea of canines — and he’s OK with that. This guy is a dapper gentleman who has developed a taste for the finer things in life — specifically Fancy Feast. He’s the center of attention to his humans who say, “He literally will not eat any wet cat food that isn’t Fancy Feast — so spoiled!” This beauty has excellent taste.
Price: $0.79 per can at Target
Pixie. Pixie. Pixie. This French doll may not look like it on the outside, but she has a tendency to be a little extra — only sometimes. And when that moment strikes, The Original Calming Donut is her go-to. Mom Olivia says, “Pixie loves burrowing and curling up into a little ball and sleep, so this bed molds to her body and keeps her super cozy and calm. She’s never loved a bed quite like she has loved this one! Pixie loves her faux fur anti-anxiety bed!”
Ru Dog may look and act like a manly man, but for his choice of collars, he insists on matching his pet parent with The Mucky Pup Friendship Collar. Isn’t that what every exceptional relationship needs? And mom doesn’t mind giving in because “the color is so gorgeous and we can match,” she says.
Price: $40 on Amazon
