Bringing your puppy home you'll want to make sure you have most of or all of these items (I put a * next to the most important things when brining home a new puppy):
***Purina Pro Plan Puppy food
**NuVet Wafers are a really great supplement for puppies (and adults!), we give it to all of our puppies to help with Immune health, healthy growth, and they LOVE them!
**Wire or Plastic Crate (you can start smaller and get bigger as puppy grows OR you can purchase one around 36" with a divider that you can move to give puppy space as he/she grows). The Ruffland kennels are our favorite brand, they're the most durable and work great!
*Training Treats, these are our dogs favorites: https://freedomantlerchews.com/products/vital-essentials-freeze-dried-treats-duck-nibs?_pos=1&_sid=9bd169fad&_ss=r
*Chews (Our puppies are given any of the chews that we carry on our website) ABSOLUTELY NO RAWHIDE EVER, rawhide is NOT digestible and not safe for any dog or puppy. Our dogs favorites are the Duck Nibs, Rabbit Bites, and Split Elk antler chews:
We use all Norwex products for washing our puppy bedding etc (both the powder and liquid are great and last a really long time)! Our favorite products for the dogs are the Pet towel (the towel dries dogs/puppies SO much faster!!) and the Pet mitt!!
***Snuggle Puppy can help puppy with the transition to their new family, we highly recommend these to ALL of our puppy families! Snuggle puppy has a machine that makes it feel like snuggle puppy has a heartbeat and also comes with some heat packs so puppy feels like they aren't alone, especially those first few nights away from their siblings! https://www.amazon.com/SmartPetLove-Snuggle-Puppy-Behavioral-Brown/dp/B000C9YHFS/ref=sxin_15_b2b_sx_ftd_qd?cv_ct_cx=snuggle+puppy&dchild=1&keywords=snuggle+puppy&pd_rd_i=B000C9YHFS&pd_rd_r=62af435e-d0bb-4277-97ad-d0123e25c102&pd_rd_w=WRPWc&pd_rd_wg=Os3Jh&pf_rd_p=ce3afca9-0d53-4eb7-9141-dd42ab2feb87&pf_rd_r=36KVKRX9T676DJ5RFX4C&qid=1629685520&sr=1-2-0304cd0d-f9fd-4ddc-b2dc-9bd9c73622fc
Exercise pen for when you can't watch puppy, but they need more space than their kennel, but you don't have time to make sure they aren't getting into things! These are great to have on hand when puppy is little!!
I also really love to use a waterproof pad in our exercise pens in case puppy has an accident:
Our favorite dog beds are Hugglehounds Hugglefleece beds, they are INDESTRUCTABLE, easy to wash, and thick!
Some other items you don't want to forget: Toys (our favorite brands are GoDog, WestPaw, and SpunkyPet! Food and water dishes (we use stainless steel). Shampoo (we recommend Hydra or NuVet shampoos and conditioners). Chews and toys are ESSENTIAL, puppies need to be able to work their brains sometimes with a treat, puzzle toy, or chew!
