Five New Puppy Essentials

So you have just made the best decision you will ever make: you have purchased a puppy! First of all, I would like to congratulate you, and send my best wishes to your new puppy. He/she is probably the cutest thing that you have ever set your eyes upon, and is undoubtedly set to be pampered with every product you can find in your nearest pet store.

However, before you go to the pet store and spend more money than you will care to admit at a later date, ensure that you are buying things that your new puppy need.

Below is a list of five essential items to buy your new puppy.

Collar and microchip

In the same way you bring a form of identification everywhere you go, a new puppy needs to do this too. On the off chance that your puppy finds his/her way out of your house or the back yard, ensure that they can be found and brought back home safely by purchasing an identifying dog collar and have your puppy microchipped. On the identifying dog collar, include: the puppy’s name, your address, phone number and email address. If someone finds your puppy, they will be able to get easily get in contact with you and return him/her. Having a microchip the size of a small grain of rice containing your contact details inserted into the puppy is also a great way of making sure that he/she can be located. Dog kennels and shelters have microchip scanners that can read these contact details and utilise them to get in contact with you, the owner, regarding the puppy’s whereabouts.

A comfy bed

Preferably the comfiest one in the pet store. Your new puppy deserves the best, so do not be afraid to go a bit over-the-top when buying him/her a bed. If you would not mind taking a nap in it, it is good enough for the puppy!

Food and Water bowls

I would recommend buying two separate bowls as opposed to the style of dual bowl pictured above. To ensure that it is easy for the owner to remember which bowl to put pour water into and which to put food in, buy a blue bowl for water and a red one for food.

Toys

One of the first things that you will realise about your new puppy is that he will try to eat everything in your house and in your garden while he is teething. Therefore it is essential that, in order to save your kitchen table from constant abuse, you purchase a large quantity of toys for your puppy to chew on and play with. Dog toys are inexpensive and are easily found in any pet store.

Dog food and treats

Obvious but an essential nonetheless. Purchase a large bag of dry kibble food for your new puppy instead of moist canned food. Dry kibble food is recommended by vets, as it contains all the nutrients needed for a growing puppy.
