You would not want to mask, cloak, or redirect PPC links to your website because this is indeed against Google's policy and they will not approve your PPC campaign ads if you do it.
Masking, cloaking and redirecting your affiliate links is alright. Your affiliate links would be on your website and will not affect page rank nor violate any Google policy.
If you do want to direct link, the best idea is to set up a redirect. For example, instead of sending people to your affiliate URL, you set up a redirect url like http://www.catanddogcare.com/recommends/stop-barking
You can take a look at https://www.affilorama.com/site-building ... -redirects
for the steps on how to do that.
Hope that helps :)
