3. IDENTIFICATION

You’ll want an identification tag with your puppy’s name and your current contact information in case of emergency. Also talk to your vet about microchipping, which is a simple and permanent form of ID that can help reunite you with your lost puppy.

4. WATER AND FOOD BOWLS

When looking at water and food bowls, purchase stainless steel, which collects less bacteria.

5. PUPPY PADS

When house-training your puppy, arm yourself with some absorbent puppy pads to make the clean-up job easier.

6. LEASH

Look for an adjustable leash to hook onto your puppy’s collar for walks around the neighbourhood.

7. CRATE

Whether you’re crate training or need a portable crate to transport your puppy, choose the appropriate size to keep him feeling secure. You might need to purchase larger sizes as he grows into adulthood.

8. COLLAR

Find an adjustable soft collar that will fit comfortably around your puppy’s neck. You might go through a few collars as his size increases.

9. BEDDING

Keep your puppy warm and snuggly during naptime with soft and comfortable bedding. Make sure it’s easy to throw in the washer to keep smells and accidents at bay.

10. SHAMPOO

Find a gentle puppy shampoo to keep your pup clean and smelling fresh. There are an array of products available, so search for the perfect one suited to your dog’s coat.

11. GROOMING BRUSH

Look for a soft-bristled brush or metal comb for puppies with longer hair to keep his mane tamed and healthy.

12. EAR CLEANING SOLUTION

Find a quality ear cleaner to keep your new puppy’s ears clean and healthy.

13. TEETH CLEANING SUPPLIES

Find dog safe toothpaste and a toothbrush to get him accustomed to having his teeth cleaned.

14. DOG NAIL TRIMMER

Puppies have sharp nails that grow quickly and need regular trimming. Purchase a quality dog trimmer to prevent scratches and your dog’s nails from cracking and breaking.

15. PUPPY GATES

Puppy gates or playpens are a perfect way to let him roam a certain area of your home while keeping him safe when you’re not around.

16. PUPPY TOYS

Puppies love to play, and playtime is important as your puppy teethes and becomes part of the family. Look for interactive toys so you can join in on the fun!

17. FLEA AND TICK MEDICATION

As your pup explores the great outdoors, keep him safe from pests with flea and tick medication.

18. ENZYME CLEANER

Accidents happen – enzyme cleaners destroy the scent of your puppy’s accidents, so he won’t try to use the same spot again.

19. ANTI-CHEW SPRAY

As you puppy proof your new home, look for a natural spray that will deter him from chewing items you can’t keep out of his reach.

20. VETERINARIAN

Your veterinarian will be able to address your concerns, while keeping your puppy up to date on vaccinations.

When preparing for your new pup, remember to keep him looking and feeling his best with quality chow from Wellness Pet Food. When you give your puppy Wellness Pet Food, you can be sure that your puppy will receive the best nutrition to fit his growing needs, since our food and treats are made with natural ingredients and crafted with your pet’s wellbeing at heart.
