We're betting the buyers at Aldi are pet people. Either that or they've just cleverly noticed how much more important pets have become during lockdown and introduced a vast new range of amazing buys. It's probably a bit of both. Either way, your furry friends can be the receiving end of some stellar homeware buys thanks to Aldi's pet event. We're talking everything from a pet pool (we know, OMG!) to pet stairs and a cuuuute cat bed.
So, have a sniff around these fab deals and watch as your pet pal's tail starts wagging (although if that's a cat's tail, watch out, they're cross). This pet essentials range is available in stores from Thursday 20th August and you can pre-order online from Sunday 16th August... while stocks last! (And since stocks at Aldi often don't last, we've popped some alternative buys beneath.)

1. Pet Pool, £22.99
We're going to start with this pet pool because we are quite frankly obsessed (and also a little jealous). The relentless heatwaves that the UK's 2020 summer has seen most certainly cool for a paddling pool (especially if you're wearing a 24/7 fur coat). This adorable pool will be the ultimate chill-out, cool-off spot for your pooch... the perfect pet essential this summer.
