Whoever said you can’t buy happiness forgot about puppies!
- Gene Hill -
Here is a list of some things you will need to prepare for your puppy’s arrival:
Puppy Food: Blue Buffalo Puppy
Food (Chicken) as this is what they are used to.
We require this food for the health guarantee because
it is the healthiest and reasonably priced. Please
check to see if it is available in your area, usually
at PetSmart, Petco or Tractor Supply.
Leashes: A lightweight lead is
all you need for the first few months. To get
the pup comfortable with the lead, let them walk
around dragging it behind them.
Toys & Chewies: Our pups LOVE Nylabones - they are very durable, lasting quite a while before needing to be replaced. Start out with Puppy Bones that are chicken or liver flavored. The original flavor is not that appealing. Antlers are wonderful and come in a split puppy from deer or elk. Excellent for chewing! Kongs are also great toys, and my dogs will tell you they like them best stuffed with Blue Buffalo canned food and frozen. I call them Kong Pops! Stuffed animals are nice and your pup will love to cuddle with them - just watch out for buttons and hard plastic eyes/noses, because most of the time, they just get eaten. Because puppies do chew and eat their toys, only buy "Pup Approved" toys, and try to stick with those made out of rubber, not plastic.
Pee Pads: These are handy to start with or you can use newspaper. Our puppies are trained on both and it should only take a few days to get housetrained.
Grooming : A natural puppy shampoo is my choice and also use a conditioner! Natural products don't contain sulphates. A slicker brush will keep the coat tidy and you will need nail clippers. If you're too squeamish to do it yourself (it can get messy if you don't know what you're doing), a groomer or vet will be able to do this for you for a small charge. Never let your dog’s nails get too long because it hurts them. If you can hear your dog’s nails on a hard surface, it is time to trim them.
Baby Gates: These are useful for keeping your pup out of places he/she shouldn't go.
Puppy Training: Puppy obedience
classes are always a good idea. They
usually start at 10 weeks of age and are great for
socialization and learning basic commands.
