Most pets shed, but you can help your fellow pet parents gain control of the fuzzballs with frequent brushing. FURminator has brushes for dogs and cats, and with options for grooming, deshedding, and bathing, they have the full lineup of grooming products that can help get your friend’s dog or cat looking beautiful this holiday season.

This one is for all of the dogs who you just aren’t sure what kind of dog they even are. The Embark Breed and Health Kit is a DNA test for your dog that can help you learn more about your dog’s breed, ancestry, and health. Along with telling you what breed your dog is, when you send in your pup’s test Embark checks for over 190 genetic risk variants as well, helping you identify potential health concerns that you should check up on with your vet. If another dog that your pup is related to has also taken an Embark DNA test, you’re also able to connect with your furbaby’s family members!

Dog’s can’t vacuum, but if they could we think they’d be a fan of robot vacuums (#Naps). The iRobot Roomba 675 robot vacuum is perfect for cleaning up your pet’s hair and other household messes. With sensors that help it navigate around furniture and other obstacles and a handy app that lets you schedule your daily cleanings, vacuuming becomes a chore of the past!
