Every shopaholic’s favorite day of the year, Black Friday takes place the day after Thanksgiving and has become a holiday in its own right. Consumers flock to malls and their favorite stores on the hunt for bargains or wait out the weekend for the online equivalent, Cyber Monday. Savvy pet owners take advantage of these events to score amazing discounts on Fido’s shopping list. To help you save time and snag the best offers on everything from travel essentials to snazzy threads for your pup, we’ve rounded up our favorite Black Friday pet deals this year.
