Let's just be honest here for a moment, pet owners are a little crazy. Wait just a second there before you start protesting, because I say this as a pet owner myself. We really are. Pet owners, in general, are just a little bit nuts. We have these creatures that we keep in our homes, we feed, we take care of, we pick up their poop. We'll even arrange our entire lives around our pets (and if you think that you don't then just try and remember how many times you've said the phrase "oh, sorry, I can't I need to go let the dog out"). But the biggest indication that we're a little bit nuts is the fact that we will buy our pets anything.
Our puppies provide us with so much love and affection and general merriment that we find ourselves wanting to give them the entire world. And while that may not actually be feasible, pet owners know that once you see something that was created for your doggo, you're going to buy it, no matter how much money you end up shelling out, because you can practically picture how excited your dog is going to get when you come home and tell him that you have a surprise for him. His tail will start to wag furiously. His mouth will be open with this tongue all lopsided as he prances around, excitedly waiting.
Here is a list of amazingly awesome things that every pet owner is going to want to buy for their dog, like, now.
25 This interactive fetch machine
The one thing that every dog owner knows is that your adorable canine simply cannot get enough of playing fetch. You could throw a ball all day and your cutie pie will joyously bound after each and every toss just as excitedly as the million times you threw it before that. But your arms get way too tired too quickly to keep up with your dog. Now, you have a great way of tiring out your dog without killing your arms with the iFetch. It's rechargeable and even comes with a few tennis balls. (Source: Amazon)
24 This couch that has a space specifically for your pooch
This couch is stylish for your home, but also shows where your priorities are. So many people don't want dogs on the couch, but this entire couch was made so that your dogs have their own spot on the couch all the time. Plus, the design of this is actually well thought out and gives you a coffee table to put your drinks on while your doggo sleeps beside you. The best part is that your cutie pie gets the perfect spot to rest and when company comes over you won't feel the need to hide the dog bed, since it's part of the decor!
23 This window that lets your dog be nosy
Dogs are curious creatures. They want to know what is going on and big wooden fences prevent them from doing just that. Well, now you can allow your pet to give in to their curious side any time that they want by installing the Pet Peek. It's a cute little window that your dog can look through. It's domed enough that your dog can fit his cute little head into it. It's also nice for your neighbors to be able to say hi to your doggo as they walk by. (Source: PetPeek)
22 A jacuzzi for your dog
A jacuzzi is a great way to relax and unwind from your stressful day. But have you ever sat in the tub feeling absolutely soothed and totally zen only to see your precious pooch staring at you with those longing eyes from outside of the tub? Rather than let guilt wash over you and ruin your experience, why not get your dog its own tub to relax in. They can join in the soothing experience with you. (Source: Shop.pawspaw.co.uk)
21 This baby sling made for your dog
Let's just be honest here for a minute, your dog is basically your baby. They're called fur-babies for a reason. And sometimes you just are in the mood to spoil your baby and carry them around, but your arms can get tired quickly when you're toting around your pup, so the best option out there is a dog sling that leaves your hands and arms free but keeps your cutie pie safe and close by.

There is even a home alone feature. (Source: Amazon)
18 This doggie fountain
Imagine your adorable dog just prancing around the backyard in the hot summer heat when suddenly, your pooch gets very thirsty.

7 Keep them in mind when you build your kitchen
The kitchen is the central hub of the home. It's where you cook, and bake, it's where the family gathers for food and it usually ends up being an important area during parties. With all of that being said, kitchens are designed with all family members in mind other than the family pet. You can change that by building a pet bed into your kitchen island and making sure to give your puppy a place to sleep while you're cooking for the family.
6 This pet umbrella
No one enjoys getting wet on a walk, including your dog. While, yes, you could just try to avoid going for walks when there is a chance of rain, it's not fair to keep your fury friend cooped up indoors just because the weather is less than ideal. Instead, pamper them and keep them just as dry as you would yourself with this convenient pet umbrella. It's see-through too so that you can make sure that your doggo is doing okay during your walk.

5 This seat belt for dogs
Some dogs absolutely LOVE car rides. And while it's fun to take them around in the car, you want them to stay safe.

The dog seat belt gives your dog room to roam and enjoy the car while still keeping them and you safe on the road. (Source: Amazon)

Bowser beer is the summer essential for you and your dog. (Source: Amazon)
