Game of Thrones Iron Throne Cat Bed (or, a kinda small dog bed too)
It’s pretty obvious from the withering looks your cat gives you that he dreams of ruling Westeros (or anything, really). He already assumes that wherever you want to sit is his throne; might as well give him his very own Iron Throne. Buyer Beware: if you have two pets, assume that Winter is Coming.

FlexiPaw Phone Treat Holder
We’re going to go ahead and admit that our perfectly trained dogs look at the camera Every. Single. Time. It only took thousands of dollars and years of training. For those with less time/disposable income/insane ideas, there’s the FlexiPaw Treat Holder. This ingenious little device attaches to your cell phone and clamps a treat right above the camera lens for the perfect photo Every. Single. Time. (The DiG not responsible for spontaneously eaten cell phones.)

I think we can all agree that fish are pretty boring pets. You can’t pet them, they can’t fetch, they’re not cuddly. But what if…WHAT IF…what if you could teach your fish to swim through hoops, navigate a slalom course, and even (dare I say it!)…kick a soccer ball (okay, nudge a soccer ball with its face). Train your formerly bland fish with this set of agility maneuvers, using techniques similar to those used to modify circus animal behavior – regular beatings and impending death (just kidding, it’s positive reinforcement and food rewards).
