WHAT DO I NEED FOR MY NEW PUPPY?

For the new dog owners, here is the list of things that you could get for your new puppy.


CRATE

This is the most effective tool for house breaking and training your new puppy.

COLLAR AND I.D. TAGS

These will help your pet get home if he/she is lost.

POOPER-SCOOPER OR BAGS

Most areas require that you clean up after your pet.

FOOD

You always want to start your puppy on the same food that he/she has been eating to avoid an upset stomach and diarrhea. If you want to change your puppy's food, do slow gradually over a week and slowly mix the new food in with his/her old food.

BOWLS

Stainless steel bowls are the healthiest choice for your new pet. They are easy to sterilize and cannot be destroyed by your pet.

FLEECE PAD

These are great for inside the crate. They are easy to wash and are a much better choice than a bed in the crate when you are training them.

STAIN AND ODOR REMOVER

It is important to remove the scent from the carpet when your puppy has had an accident otherwise he will want to go back to the same place.

BRUSH

Brushing will help climate the hair that you find all over the house. Regular brushing also helps prevent mats and tangles that can result in having to have your pet shaved.

NAIL CLIPPERS

You will need to keep the nails trimmed or the puppy will get them stuck in the carpet. When this happens either the carpet will tear or your puppy will tear his/her nail. 

SHAMPOO

Tearless puppy shampoos are a great way to keep your pup smelling good.

KONG TOY

This is a great toy to keep your pup occupied for hours. You can put some peanut butter, canned dog food, or a treat inside the toy. You can freeze the Kong with treats inside to keep the puppy busy for longer.

BISCUITS

You want to reward your pup when he/she is good. You can do this with praise and treats.

ROPE BONE

These are great for teething. You can soak this bone in water and freeze; it will give him/her something soft and cool to chew on.

FRONTLINE

This is the best flea and tick preventive on the market. You apply it once a month and don't have to worry about it.

BED

A place to sleep when your puppy is not in his/her crate.
