Us too, which is precisely why we love shopping online on Black Friday. Online shopping is without the hassles, crowds and lines of Black Friday store trips, and now that shipping has gotten a lot better, you don’t even have to wait very long for your order. Retailers like Petco, with their PetcoNow service, can even get your order to your door in mere hours!

So without further ado, here are eight awesome pet gifts that you can buy online, without ever having to face brutal, Black Friday crowds:

To ensure your pet travels in style, check out an underseat pet carrier that simply replaces your underseat carry-on on a plane.

Bags on Board make being a responsible pet parent a fashion statement. We especially love that the the dispenser comes with 30 waste pickup bags to start and can be refilled with any of the brand’s bags. Oh, and it comes with their “Dookie Dock” too, so you can carry used bags hands-free until you find a garbage can.
