Your pet wants you to read our newsletter. (Then give them a treat.)
It’s become second nature to associate Labor Day with the end of summer (and starkly outdated rules about wearing the color white), but it’s not just a time for savoring those last watermelon margs and weekends at the beach. This is also when you should mark your cal for deals on things you can buy for your pet as you both ride into fall — and cozy bonfire and hayride season — together.
There are deals on literally dozens of those wish-list purchases you might not otherwise justify. If you’ve been looking to splurge on a pet bed that isn’t totally beige and blah or an actually cute puppy crate, now’s your time to shine. Want that pet camera to spy on your little darling while you’re out having that well-earned extra glass of wine at dinner? Snag it. Or maybe you want that vacuum to help suck up the pet fur that seems to be sticking to every surface of your home like actual Velcro.
Regardless of what it is, you’ll probably be able to find it during this sale. But, hey, it’s still August, so go live out these last dog days of summer, and we’ll catch up on the biggest Labor Day sales once you and your pup have had your post-swim nap.
Btw, our editors (and their pets) picked out these products. They’re always in stock at the time we publish, but there’s a chance they’ll sell out. If you do buy through our links, we may earn a commission. (We’ve got a lot of toys to buy over here, you know?)
Where better to score discounts than Amazon on a deals day? We love to save on high-tech items, which is why we’re heading over to the ’zon for a technology bonanza — from pet cams to communication buttons for your pet, they’ve got everything you’ll need to upgrade your end of summer set-up. Plus, Amazon stays stocked up on our favorite puzzle toys, so the end of summer doesn’t have to mean the end of fun and enrichment for your pet.
When it comes to eye-catching home decor and fashion, there’s no more tempting a place to splurge than good old Anthropologie.

There’s something for everyone — and every pet — this holiday.
You’ll pay full price for an essential home item if you have to, but you don’t have to — especially this weekend. Happy news: Dyson’s Ball Animal Vac is currently a whopping $200 off. While you’ll find other deals during Dyson’s Labor Day sale, you aren’t likely to find one that your housemates, furry and non, will be just as jazzed about. Your Great Pyrenees mix has enough fur as it is; they don’t need to have even more coating their favorite nap spot.
The comfiest Tempur-Pedic mattress for pets (and their humans) has entered the chat. At 20 percent off this Labor Day, there’s never been a better reason to splurge on your fuzzy family members — and let’s face it, they’re good to you all year long.
Listen, dog crates are not typically the most attractive piece of pet furniture. That’s a given. However, cult-favorite brand, Fable, has found a suitable, practical, and aesthetically pleasing alternative to the traditional metal crate that makes us all shudder. Now, it’s 20 percent off, as well as the rest of their offerings across the site for Labor Day. Just be sure to use code LD20 at checkout.

As pet parents, we try our best not to be wasteful — we use compostable poop bags, planet-friendly grooming products, and even mend tattered toys when possible. But some items that have been subjected to the dagger teeth of a puppy or the talons of a cat simply are beyond repair and need to be swapped out for more durable items. Thankfully, you can stock up on sustainable pet toys at P.L.A.Y. This Labor Day weekend, they’re offering major deals for a little supply replenish.
You can always count on Wild One to have your pet covered. As much as we love their carriers and toys and bowls and...OK, everything they make, their Walk Kits are kind of classics. All the colorways are currently on sale for 15 percent off. The discount automatically applies at checkout.
