Dogs are nosy, but can you blame them? Their sense of smell is at least 40 times stronger than ours. Some of their favorite toys engage this incredible sense. They are perfect to help your dogs use their nose and keep their brains busy.

The Papaba Sniffing Mat Sunflower is our pick for November’s best dog product deal. This washable mat is easy to clean and is made of polyester fleece. We love the quality stitching and fabric loops in this sniffing mat. It has a non-slip bottom and drawstring cord to pull it closed so you can load it with treats and carry it with you, ready to go.

Sometimes, it’s hard to fit yet another dog crate in the house. Crate training is important for pups, yet the things take up space that we don’t always have to spare.

Furniture-style dog crates offer an alternative to that. They’re more expensive than a portable wire crate, but they’re much nicer for the home. You’ll be able to reclaim a bit of table space and give your pups a great crate near the family.

We love that it has extra storage and a tabletop above the crate. The two-door crate has slide locks on the top and bottom of each door. While it’s probably not designed for expert crate escape artists, but a properly crate-trained dog will have a nice little dog cave in which to rest. The GDLF Dog Crate Furniture-Style Indoor Heavy Duty Kennel with Storage gets our vote for the best dog product this month.

Best Cat Product Deal: Xueyu Portable Cat Carrier — Save 16%

Whether it’s a quick trip to the vet or a cross-country adventure, your cat needs a safe place to ride. If you prefer a soft-sided carrier, this may be a good option.

The Xueyu Portable Cat Carrier is our pick for November’s best cat product. We love the tough mesh sides and roll-down covers to give your kitty a dark little cave in which to curl up while you travel. It also has a removable pad so you can clean up any messes that may occur. When not in use, the cat carrier can easily fold up and tuck away until you need it again.

The Xueyu Portable Cat Carrier is available for 16% off and is on clearance. So, get it while you can.

Best Small Animals Product Deal: Kaytee Forti Diet Timothy Hay, 180 Ounces

  • Timothy hay advertised as being naturally grown without pesticides.
  • Made specifically for small animals.
  • Available in containers of 180, 96, 48, or 24 ounces.

Your rabbits, guinea pigs, or hamsters deserve delicious, nutritious food. How and where food grows makes a difference in both flavor and vitamin content.

Kaytee grows its Forti Diet Timothy Hay without pesticides in rich soil, then hand selects the feed, looking for an appropriate leaf-to-stem ratio and long fiber strands. Buyers mention that Walmart has a better price on this Timothy hay and that the quality was terrific. One customer complained, but Kaytee responded to their review and requested that they call Kaytee’s customer service team to resolve the problem.

Our pick for the best small animal product in November is Kaytee Forti Diet Timothy Hay. We loved that the price was excellent and that the company sought to resolve a complaint listed in a review.

Keeping your reptile and amphibian enclosures clean isn’t always easy. The substrate needs to be scooped and changed, water bowls cleaned and refilled, and then there’s maintaining the humidity.

Glass and acrylic terrariums help because they keep moisture in. This habitat kit comes with everything you need to get ready for the new humidity-loving critter in your family. It’s a full glass terrarium with a metal mesh top for ventilation. The enclosure opens in the front with two locking doors and comes with a water dish, substrate, jungle vines, rope, and a care guide.

We love that Exo Terra’s habitat kit comes with nearly everything you may need. If your pet requires a light or external heat source, you’ll need to purchase it separately. However, everything else is here. The Exo Terra Rainforest Habitat Kit, Small, is our pick for the best cold-blooded pet product in November.

About Walmart’s Sales

Walmart online has numerous opportunities to save money. Within each department are price rollbacks, deals, and clearance items. Some are deeply discounted, and others aren’t as discounted.

As of this writing, the prices and discounts were active. However, things like this change frequently, so it’s best to move quickly if you see something you like. For example, when we share an item that’s on clearance, it’s possible that the quantities in stock are very low, increasing the likelihood that it sells out.

The 5 Best Pet Products at Walmart This November FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) 

Does Walmart offer free shipping?

Yes. Usually, orders over $35 have free shipping.

What is Walmart's return policy?

If you purchase the item from Walmart.com, their policy states that “Returns are available for nearly everything Walmart Sells.”

This may not be the case, however, for marketplace vendors. They have minimum requirements to meet according to Walmart.com’s policy, but that doesn’t mean everything can be returned.

Does Walmart price match?

In-store, Walmart generally matches prices, when the purchase meets their requirements.

Walmart.com does not have price matching.
