See the Trusted Pet Products That Have a "Paw of Approval" From Real Cats and Dogs

Pet parents, get excited! The animal experts at POPSUGAR's sister brand The Dodo just launched its "Paw of Approval" seal to help pet parents find some of the most innovative and effective products for cats and dogs. And the best part? Along with veterinarians and Dodo editors, real cats and dogs help to judge each product that's given the seal: 1-year-old pup Nora, 14-year-old doggo Boo, 4-year-old kitty Lazlo, and 5-year-old feline Bug.

The Paw of Approval seal has already been given to 50 products across five categories — toys, health, gear, food, and parent picks — to help pet parents take the guesswork out of purchasing items for their fur babes. Every quarter, 50 additional products will be recognized, each coming with its own review on The Dodo.

From dog toys and cat food to gear that parents will love — like a machine-washable rug! — the Paw of Approval has been given to so many fun and useful products. Check out the must-have dog picks, cat picks, dog parent perks, and cat parent perks now.
