Puppy Starter Kit

Puppy Starter Kit

By no means is this a complete list, but it's a good place to start!  Use the check list below to make sure you are prepared and ready for your new family member!

Food & Treats

  • Choose a grain free or freeze dried food as a healthy option for a new puppy.  Thankfully, pet owners leave detailed reviews on Amazon, so make sure you click through and take a look at what other pet owners have to say about the product.  Make sure you check the label to make sure there are no hidden ingredients before you add to cart.  Reputable sellers will have a clear image of the ingredients labels so you can make sure you are buying the best product for your puppy.
  • Training treats to get sits.  Charlee Bear treats are a crowd favorite with only 3 calories per treat.  Choose healthier treats to help ensure your puppy doesn't get overweight.  Add in raw vegetables and small amounts of fruits to train a healthy eating palette!
  • Greenies.  Puppies love these and they help to keep their teeth fresh and clean.
  • Peanut Butter.  Never met a dog that say no to peanut butter.
  • Puppy Gel supplements:  Nutri-Cal gel is a great way to get those vital nutrients into an new puppy while they are adjusting and acclimating to their new home.

Home Prep

  • Bowl for food and water
  • Crate for training
  • A pet gate to mark off limited sections of the house
  • Comfy bed and blanket
  • Wee wee pads/Training pads
  • De-odorizing cleaning spray.  Unfortunately typical housing cleaners don't always eliminate the smell.  Puppies will continue to have accidents in the same spot.  Try a pet spray to reduce some of the accidents based on scent.

Toys & Teething

  • Fun Balls & Bones
  • Teething Chew Toys & Ropes
  • No Chew Protective Tape to wrap around your chair & table legs.  Even though you may not want to think about it...puppies chew anything they can get their teeth on.  Try to keep your shoes away from sight and wrap any wooden chair legs and corners with some "No Chew Tape."  It tastes bitter when they bite it.  Eventually puppies will find other fixations...hopefully actual toys.

Grooming & Care

  • Shampoo (dry shampoo optional- but it comes in handy!)
  • Shedding Brush.  Look into what type of brush your breed of dog needs.  You might need an undercoat brush for your breed type to get into those deep matty places.
  • Salmon oil/Fish oil:  Pet owners recommend adding a squirt of fish oil to your dog's food to help with maintaining a healthy coat.  Dogs seem to like it.
