PRODUCTS WE LOVE
Concentrated Detangler & Shine
Cowboy Magic is a wonderful product to use in between baths to make their coats shine and smell good! I love that it doesn't make their coats greasy or weigh down their fur! They do also make shampoo but this is the primary product we use from them. It is a bit pricey but it lasts a LONG time because honestly a little dab will do!
We fell in love with this puppy set up from the moment we saw the picture on Facebook. We now use it on a regular basis! When we use this setup our puppies end up spending quit a bit of time in their crates and it becomes a positive place for them. It is a great example of the setup recommended by Puppy Culture. It helps to set your puppy up for success, especially for times they will be home on their own for a while. This allows your puppy room to move around, a place to go potty, and access to their crate. This is also great for times when they need some down time or you won't be able to keep eyes on them for a while.
We use our crates on a daily basis and find them to be wonderful tool for potty training as well as general puppy and dog wrangling! We introduce puppies to a crate before they head home to you and we hope that their crate becomes a cozy place they love!! Your puppy needs to be able to turn around comfortably in th crate but not have so much room that they can move to the back and use it as their indoor bathroom! You can either begin with a smaller crate and work your way up as they grow or use the adjustable panel that comes with the crate to help it grow as they do. Our standards will typically need the x-large crates by the time they are full grown.
We love these play yards! They are a great place to set your puppy for a few moments if you need him to be contained either inside or out! They break down easily and are very compact which is also a big plus!
Bed & Mat
Puppy comfort!! We like to have a pad in their crate that is easy to wash for the occasional accident or muddy mess. I always check and make sure they are machine washable before I buy them. I also use small soft bathroom rugs as well since they are so easy to clean!
Puppy beds are another comfort item! Our puppies always love the beds with the raised sides so they can rest their cute little heads on them!
KONG - Classic Dog Toy
KONGs are a great tool to keep your puppy mentally active and helps to avoid boredom! You can stuff them with all kinds of yummy things and even put them in the freezer to help with teething!
We are pretty sure we have a puppy toy addiction! TJ Maxx and HomeGoods again have proven to be a fantastic place to find all kinds of toys! ZippyPaws is a favorite of ours! Each puppy will have a style of toy that they enjoy most so it calls for a bit of experimentation... which is half the fun!
