Dog products can be pricey, especially if you have multiple pups at home. Sometimes you need some extra, quality items that won’t put a dent in your wallet. Things like a back up bed, a new carseat cover, or some extra dog supplies. If you’re on a budget, or you’re trying to save money, you can still get quality items for your pet, despite the cheaper cost. Shopping for your dog doesn’t always mean spending a fortune.
Here’s where to go in the US to find the goods that won’t break the bank.
HomeGoods is the place to go if you need random dog stuff or dog-related items.
Their rows of pet goods have everything from comfy beds, to dog shampoo, to large dog prints to decorate a home.
You’ll find dog products here that you never even knew existed, like treat recipe books and travel kibble containers. Their items are quality, and won’t break the bank.
The bad news is there’s no online shopping for these prices – you’ll have to visit the store to take advantage of their sales.
Pro tip: don’t limit yourself to the pet aisle. You’ll find plenty of dog-related items in other sections, like dog statues in home decor, or dog pillows in homeware.
Owned by the same company as HomeGoods, TJ Maxx sells similar items at a comparable cost. Their offering is smaller, but it’s still quality.
Head here to find a random selection of dog supplies, often with just a few of each item available. You never know what you’ll find with each visit!
Five Below is an American retail chain that sells trendy items for $5 or less.
Their pet section is better in-store than online, but either way, both are worth checking out.
You can find beds, poop bags, toys, and even dog clothes all for under $5. It’s a go-to store if you’re on a budget.
Five Below stores are currently only found on the East Coast (sorry West Coasters!), but you can always order online.
Pro tip: if you buy your pup a pool float, they’ll fill them up for you free of charge!
There’s nothing you can’t find on Amazon.
They sell millions of products from all over the world, and ship them right to your doorstep.
You can find any kind of pet product you’ll need, from a variety of brands and in a multitude of styles.
Check out their Amazon Basics brand for pet products. It’s incredibly affordable. We use Amazon Prime, which comes with free 2-day shipping on most items, and other perks like exclusive deals, and Amazon Video.
Pro tip: always read reviews before purchasing. Amazon makes this easy, with a star rating system for each product, customer reviews, and photos.
Goodwill stores sell gently used items at a fraction of their retail cost.
If you don’t mind buying second hand, or browsing, head to the local Goodwill store. They’re a great place to pick up extra dog toys and supplies.
Everyone loves a Target store – they’re a one stop shop for pretty much all of your needs.
Their pet section is decent, with a good amount of variety.
Definitely check out their matching pajama sets, where you can get pj’s for the whole family, including your cat and dog.
