Every year on the Monday after Thanksgiving, people across the country stay glued to their computer screens for the online equivalent of Black Friday.  On Cyber Monday, we trade the long lines for a slower-than-normal internet connection, and we click to pay for our holiday loot, rather than swipe.

This year, keep your furry friend in mind when you’re doing your holiday shopping!  We all love an excuse to treat our pets to something extra special every now and again, and Cyber Monday is just what the doctor (veterinarian) ordered!

Here’s a round-up of the best Cyber Monday deals that we’ve been able to find for pets and their people:

As many of you already know, Amazon reigns as king of Cyber Monday, so the notion that they would have some of the best deals on pet-related gifts is pretty expected.  We found dog beds and cat trees on sale for as much as 47% off.  That’s a pretty hefty discount, and I think we can all agree that these items are among the most important pieces of furniture in your house.

However, Amazon can get a little tricky on Cyber Monday.  They offer “holiday lightning deals” which are only available for a short window of time.  Fortunately, you can opt into a waitlist.  It’s definitely worth the time it takes to check it out.

Visit Amazon and see what kind of goodies you can find!


This all-around favorite department store is another predictable choice, but this list wouldn’t be complete without it.  Check out Target online for awesome deals throughout the entire week (beginning today).  Their sales offer as much as 40% off of various pet care items, and shipping is free for this week, as well.


You won’t believe the deals you find at Overstock.com.  Various pet products are marked down by as much as 60% (check out the Animal Planet memory foam large pet lounger).  Remember to factor a few extra dollars into the equation, though.  Unlike some of the other online retailers, it doesn’t look like shoppers will be catching a break on shipping.


PrideBites is a really cute concept.  This online retailer allows you to design your own special items for your beloved pet, and they’ll ship it right to your home.  Of course, it comes at a cost.  However, events like Cyber Monday make this luxury pretty affordable.  Here’s a very helpful hint: use the code “Shopify” at checkout to receive 30% off of your entire order (that offer is only valid for today, Cyber Monday).


Modko is an online retailer of modern-age environmentally-friendly pet products that are guaranteed to make your life easier.  Even if you aren’t interested in purchasing any of their products, it’s super interesting to check out what they have to offer.  Items like the Shake Dog Potty and Modkat Top-Entry Litter Box are pretty unique, and if they are in your budget, now is the time to snag them.  For Cyber Monday, they are offering 25% off of your entire order, plus free shipping.

Cyber Monday offers plenty of opportunity to spoil your sidekick, and this list barely touches the surface.
