5 Things to Buy When You First Get a Pup!
Welcome to this Blog where we aim to help you find the 5 essentials (in our opinion) to getting your new Pup settled in at home.
1. Collar & leashYour puppy will need a collar and leash the day you bring her home. A collar — plain or fancy — holds your pup’s dog license and identification tag, which lists your name and phone number. The collar attaches to the leash, which you will need to walk your pup.
2. Crates and containmentA must for any puppy owner, crates and containment devices keep your new pal in a confined area where you can monitor and housetrain him. You will need a dog crate or carrier, and an exercise pen, playpen, or gate when you bring your pup home.
3. Dog bedThe first night your puppy comes home, she’ll need a comfy bed to lay her head. While you’re housetraining her, she will sleep in her kennel or crate! Smaller beds and bumper beds covered in fleece or sheepskin are designed just for this purpose. They keep the dog warm and cozy while she’s dozing away.
4. Food and water bowlsYour puppy will need food and water bowls when he comes home, and there are many varieties available through your pet specialty retailer. You can choose ceramic or stainless steel dishes, plastic crocks, and even glass bowls — but all these place settings for your pooch have their benefits and drawbacks.
Get your bowl here NOW!Stainless steel bowls, though generally the most expensive, are the best choice. They’re strong, easy to clean and sanitize, and usually too cumbersome for a puppy to carry in his mouth. Many raised feeders and custom-carved bowl holders come with stainless steel bowls.
5. Food, treatsShe may be small, but your pup will have a big appetite and big calorie demands to give her body the energy to develop healthy bones, organs, skin, and coat. As a result, for the first 12 months of your pup’s life, you will feed her a diet created just for her demanding energy and nutritional needs.
