Puppy Food

Puppies eat a lot, 3 to 4 times a day. They need high quality specially formulated food  for them. Ask your veterinarian about what is the best food according to his breed and size. 

Food and Water Bowls

Puppies need specific food and water bowls. Buy resistant stainless-steel bowls with rubber so your dog can´t slide it around.   

Puppy Treats

Puppy treats help to train your new furry friend. Look for low-calorie treats to prevent your pup from getting overweight.  

Crates and Gates 

Crates allow your puppy to have a secure place of their own. Buy the right size crate for your pup with enough space to stand up, and turn around.  

Provide your puppy with comfortable and soft bedding. 

Puppy gates are useful appliances when you want to contain your pup. There are plenty of available models, choose the best according to your dog’s size.

Dog Bed

Even if your dog sleeps in a crate at night, he will need a bed where he can rest during the day. When you buy a dog bed, be sure to get one cozy and comfortable. 

Leash and Collar

You’ll need a well-made leash and collar to walk safely with your pup. Collars must have an ID tag with your name and contact information. 

Puppy Toys

Puppy toys are a good way to interact with your puppy. Shop toys specially designed for them. Consider toys to keep your furry friend occupied and busy such as puzzle toys.

Shampoo and Grooming Tools

You will need grooming essentials at home, such as dog shampoo, a comb, a brush, and nail clippers.

Tip: Don’t use human shampoo on your puppy. 

Cleaning Supplies 

Look for an enzyme cleaner to clean and remove urine stains. The difference between an enzyme cleaner and a regular household spray is that the enzymes get rid of odors that only dogs can smell. Avoid any cleaning with ammonia or strong chemicals.
