Although pet play is a mindset, many pets love adding toys and gear to get into a better headspace or subspace; and man, oh man, there are many toys and types of wearable gear to choose from when it comes to pet play. It can be actual toys that you can buy at most pet shops, like rope toys and chewy toys for puppies or wool balls and mice with bells for kittens to play with, and there are so many choices available to get you into subspace.

You can buy countless types of plugs with tails regardless of what animal or pet you identify as for your roleplay, and you can even add a mask or ears to your pet play closet. The most exciting accessory to have as a pet in a D/s dynamic would be a collar from your caregiver or handler, this way, and you know you are owned. A collar is twice as fun if you are a puppy, as your handler can take you for a walk with your collar and leash.

Pet play should be something that both partners enjoy; it should be discussed before play to establish what is allowed or considered to be a boundary. Both partners should consent to the pet play and the duration of the scene. Even though it might be enticing to go for a walk with your partner outside in public on a leash, it is essential to remember that nobody in public has consented to be part of your scene or play. So please keep your roleplay in your apartment or yard.
