What To Buy A New Puppy………..Don’t Forget These Must Have Items
It's important to know what to buy a new puppy and have it on hand before the big day arrives. That way you will be prepared and ready. It's almost like bringing a new baby home……….you would definitely want to make sure you had the diapers!
Puppies are no different. They have immediate needs too and you want to make sure that you have covered all your bases BEFORE you bring them home.
So what do you need on your new puppy checklist? Well here are a few tips and some essential items to help you get ready for the big day:
Food– By all means don't forget the food! Do your research ahead of time and decide on the best puppy food for your puppy. One little tip on the food…………….make sure the kibbles are small and easy for them to chew.
Daily Supplement– Puppies really need a daily vitamin mineral supplement to help them get off to a good start. They will be growing very fast their first year and need all the nutrition that they can get.
Healthy Dog Treats– All dogs love treats and that includes puppies. They are also a great way to reward your puppy when they have been good.
There are antioxidant health bars for dogs, pork hide bones and a multitude of good healthy treats on the market for your puppy. (Just remember to read the labels!)
Ear and Oral Health Items– Make sure you have something on hand to clean your puppies teeth and ears. Keeping your puppies teeth and ears clean will keep them healthy for years to come.
Puppy Shampoo– You'll definitely be needing to give them a bath once they get home. Look for a hypoallergenic dog shampoo that is natural and smells good too.
You can actually buy puppy starter kits with all the essentials already in them and ready to go so you won't forget anything.
Other things you need for a new puppy include a dog bed, food and water bowl, dog crate (if you are crate training) or an indoor dog gate (if you want to keep them in a certain area of the house).
If you haven't decided on a house training method you need to do that ASAP. Are you going to use pee pads or maybe one of the new dog potties on the market? No matter what you decide, you need to have it on hand as well.
It really pays to get prepared before bringing home a new puppy. Having all the essentials on hand can make it much more stress free so you can spend your time doing what's most important………..enjoying your new bundle of joy!
