PupPrep 101: The Must-Have Shopping List for First-Time Puppy Owners

    1. The Essentials...

    2. Crate

    When it comes to selecting a crate for your new pup, you have the option of plastic or wire. Choosing the right size is important, however. Don't go too big too soon. A crate that's too spacious could lead to potty mishaps. Instead, opt for a wire crate that comes with dividers. You can create a smaller space for your pup in the beginning, and then expand it as they grow.

    3. Flat collar with snap or buckle and a ring for ID tags

    4. Leash

    Here's the deal with leashes... You want a good, sturdy leash that's about 6 feet long. And let me tell you something, do NOT go for those flimsy, flexible leashes. Those things are a disaster waiting to happen. Your puppy's gonna end up pulling on that thing like they're in a tug-of-war championship and next thing you know, you've got a real problem on your hands. So stick to a reliable leather or fabric leash and save yourself the headache.

    5. 3-6 Hollow chew toys

    An example is a Kong Puppy Toy - Made of durable rubber, it can be filled with treats to keep your puppy entertained for hours.

    6. Raw chew bones

    Let me tell you why raw chew bones are awesome for your puppy! First off, they are natural and not processed like some of those other chews out there. And, they're great for your pup's teeth and gums. They help to scrape away tartar and plaque while they chew, which can prevent dental issues down the road. Plus, it keeps them occupied and satisfied for a good while, which means less time for them to chew on your shoes or furniture. And, let's not forget, chewing is a natural instinct for dogs and can be a great way for them to relieve stress and anxiety. So, grab some raw chew bones for your pup and watch them go to town!

    Here are some raw chew bones that are generally safe for puppies:

    1. Raw knucklebones
    2. Raw marrowbones
    3. Raw beef bones
    4. Raw lamb bones
    5. Raw chicken necks or wings
    6. Raw turkey necks or wings

    Always make sure the bones are appropriately sized for your puppy and avoid cooked bones, as they can splinter and cause harm to your pup's digestive system.
