Nu BowWow Puppy Starter Kit Review and Giveaway!

Hi Neighbors!

We got a new puppy! Yes, you heard that right. We have added a Sheltie puppy to our home. He came home Tuesday! And he is adorable! Now, bringing Webster home was made easier by having received Nu BowWow's Puppy Starter Kit. It is really a great idea if you are getting a puppy, or know someone who is. (Also would make be great for a person to send out with their puppies when they go to a new home!)




I was able to talk to Ellen, who started Nu BowWow. She is really enthusiastic about this product and even has a village (online) where you can view all sorts of information on puppy care, along with making new friends, who have also just recently brought home a new puppy. There is loads of information available on this site. You have everyone from vets to longtime dog owners to first time puppy owners. You have an online community designed just for you and your new family member. Need information on nutrition? It's there! Crate training? That's there too!




Now, what comes in this green box? Just about everything you need to bring a puppy home and get started.

1.The Puppy Survival Guide by Ellen Stieve- This book is 54 pages long and is filled with information to help you on your journey as a puppy owner. There are little tips and tricks to help you adjust to having a puppy in your home. The book does not overload or overwhelm you with information. It gives just enough information to help guide you through this transition and includes websites where you can look up more information if needed. Here are a few of the headings:
Preparing Your Home and Family for Puppy
A healthy Puppy is a Happy Puppy
Emergency Care
Your Doggy's Diet
Potty Training
More About Socialization
This is just a few of the subjects covered in this handy little book.



2. A food and water bowl. Just the perfect size for a puppy! Webster is already using his!



3. A leash and collar. Webster's is a nice dark green. So glad it wasn't pink! He wears his collar all the time, but we only use the leash occasionally right now to get him used to it. We don't expect him to follow or be guided by it yet, he is just a little guy. You can see his collar he is wearing in the first picture.

4. Bone Shaped Waste Bag Holder-This cute little waste bag holder contains fun, color coordinated bags. It has a little bone shaped clip to attach to your belt. This makes it perfect for walks and travel.



5. A Chompion Hard Rubber Toy was included. Now, I don't think everyone receives the same toy, but a toy is included in each starter kit.



6. Stain Remover-For those little accidents that are going to occur occasionally.



7. A sample of All Natural Dog Treats. Webster's were peanut butter flavored.



8. A puppy announcement post card. You fill in the information about your new puppy, attach a photo, add postage and let your friends know you have a new puppy!



I also received a magnet welcoming me to Nu BowWow Village. And there was a small sample of Canine Calm. A spray scent to help calm and soothe your dog.



So, for your $49.95 you receive the above kit and a membership to Nu BowWow Village. Ellen has brought together a great starter kit to get you on your way, and she includes an online source to help you as you and your puppy begin this journey together. There is also a newsletter that you can sign up for on the website. I have already received a couple of emails with just little bits of news about what is happening at Nu BowWow Village and then just extra little tidbits of information.

Already have a dog, and would just like to join the Nu BowWow Village? You can do that too! For just $19.95 annually, you will have all the information you need at your fingertips.

Here is Ellen and Yogi's Story:

Nu BowWow

Happy Puppies Start Here

Welcome to the Nu BowWow experience. As You emBARK on the exciting adventure of new puppy parenting, you can rely on Nu BowWow for guidance, friendship and support. We are Ellen and Yogi — Nu BowWow’s co-founders — and we are happy to be your new puppy partners.

You might be wondering why we created Nu BowWow.


This is our story….

Ellen says: Two years ago I decided it was time for a pup. After enjoying the company of some very special four-legged friends, I wanted to take the leap and get a furry friend of my own. Wow, Talk about a life changing experience! I did loads of research before choosing Yogi, my little Goldendoodle, but I was unprepared for what would happen after I brought my puppy home.

Over the next three months, I found myself overwhelmed by the experience of new puppy parenting. But — probably just like you — I had made a commitment to my puppy and I was determined to see it through. I talked to friends and read all the information I could find. When I was most frustrated, I wished that Yogi could just tell me what he needed, Since he couldn’t, I turned to my new network of doggie friends for support. Soon. Yogi and I started to click. The training began to work. Puppy parenting got easier, and of course, I fell in love with my new pup.

We created Nu BowWow to give other new puppy owners one reliable source for everything you need to know about your ”nu” puppy. In addition to providing you with our puppy-safe and puppy-tested products, the Nu BowWow Puppy Starter Kit offers more expert advice and collective wisdom at our online community, “Puppy Parents” on Facebook. Members of the Nu BowWow community will have access to special deals and discounts and expert webinars only made available to Puppy Parents who have purchased The Puppy Starter Kit. Please join the group and post questions, share your experiences, trade tips, post pictures and videos of you and your puppy and just have fun while making new friends with other new puppy owners just like you. It is our sincere hope that the Nu BowWow Puppy Starter Kit and our online community will make your journey down the road of new puppy parenting easy and fun.

We welcome your feedback and suggestions. We want to hear from you! Please email me directly at:

ellen@nubowwow.com

Best Wishes,

Ellen

Yogi says: I remember the day that Ellen (my Mom) came to get me. I was lounging in the warm sun, and then — there she was! I sniffed her feet, licked her hands, and barked to tell her how much I wanted to go home with her. When she picked me up, I knew I was part of a new family!

Moving to a new place can be confusing at first and those first few weeks weren’t always easy. Sometimes I had “accidents”, sometimes I thought she just didn’t understand what I needed. But I knew she was really trying, so I tried really hard too. I learned to go outside, learned that you are not supposed to chew on furniture, and when we go walking I learned to politely stop by her side (so she can catch her breath), and now she is my best friend in the world.

I helped my Mom create the Nu BowWow Puppy Starter Kit by testing all the products and telling her what made me and my pals happy. I want every new puppy to have as much fun with their new owners as I have with mine!

See you at the dog park…
Yogi


Nu BowWow also has an online store where you can purchase any other puppy products you might need. Training products, pet beds, dog gates, etc. can all be found in the Nu BowWow online Pet Store. And you can connect with Ellen and Yogi on Facebook and Twitter. If you do, let her know that Lori At the Fence sent you.

Now, one neighbor will win a Puppy Starter Kit from Nu BowWow. ($49.95 value) I want you to share this with everyone you can. I am sure you know someone who wants a puppy, or already has one. Even if it is not for you, this would make a great gift for someone who is getting a puppy.
