Promising review: "For 3 years I've been trying to get my chihuahua out of my bed and off my couch to no avail. The first night we had this bed he slept the entire night in it and the unheated bed went unused as my other dog got in with him. Now its both their favorite place to be. Best purchase I've ever made!"
Promising review:" Got it for my cat. It's slightly on the big side ... but he's handling it well; no issues so far. It's not for pinpointing his location but gives me an idea of where he is in the neighborhood so I can call him if necessary. To minimize size, get a keychain holder with just the rim."
Promising review: "So far so good with this. For over two different collars we had. I don’t keep it on all the time, [just] for when hiking or camping type trips. Just in case. AirTag fits in it perfectly. I think it sits close enough to the collar that you don’t have to worry about it snagging on anything."
Promising review: "Loved this product! Kept the pup entertained for longer than other toys. Helped build up her confidence and coordination . We used training treats, dog biscuits and frozen water & fruit."
Promising review: "Oh my gosh. This was so highly recommended by my neighbor that I bought two. One for me and one for my daughter. Great price. I am so happy with this item. I think I may buy a couple more for Xmas gifts."
Promising review: "Best pet related purchase I've made!!! Furbo sends your phone alerts when your dog is barking or when their are loud noises in your house- i.e. when your CO detector is going off! Saved my dog's life!"
Promising review: "Both of my cats like to play with it a lot, and this ball rolls around my house without stuck in the [corner], it is a very good toy to entertain my cats, highly recommend it!"
Promising review: "This is great! Got it home and set up in no time. The set up instructions leave a little open to interpretation, but once you're done it's perfect! Bob, my betta, and his friends have never been happier. Highly recommend if you're not prepared to commit to a huge tank, but want something big enough for a few species and plants. The added heater keeps it a perfect 78 degrees too."
Promising review: "My pup was separated from her mother way too early and has crazy separation anxiety. I opened this as soon as I got it and she instantaneously passed out on top of it. Already know it was a good purchase."
Promising review: "I’ve never seen anything like the Wickedbone before. Finn loves it! He even demands to play with it when I get home. It is by far his favorite toy."
Promising review: "My cat was nervous about this brush at first, but ... [now] she absolutely loves it now. Really gets down into her fur coat and catches a lot of stray hair. The button that pops the bristles out and back makes a noise that startles my cat though, so I have to push it slowly or away from her."
Promising review: "A bit pricey but its actually worth every penny. I had to test the bag on myself before I place my cat inside. The fans works amazingly well, the light sets up the mood, the bag is also well ventilated and the screen is tinted for sunny days. Also, you need a power supply such as a power bank for the fan and light."
Promising review: "Easy to set up and the cats like it!! The litter helps and lasts a long time. I’ve used this same brand/kind with a regular litter box and have four cats. The self-cleaning... now that’s the cats meow!!!"
