Getting a new puppy is an exciting event, and it can be so much fun to shop for everything your new furry friend will need. Here at Ideas-4-Pets we have products ranging from play pens to feeding bowls, beds and kennels. Place an order with us so you won’t have to run out to the pet shop and pay more.
Here is a general list of things to buy for your pup:
It’s important to teach your puppy to sleep in his bed early on, but you’ll also want the bed you buy to be able to grow with your dog as he grows into adulthood. Look for a comfortable bed that will suit your pup’s full grown size.
Browse our selection of dog beds for a high-quality option that you can count on for years to come.
Food and Water Bowls
Your puppy will need bowls that can’t be easily knocked over and are simple to clean. If he’s going to be a tall dog, you may want to purchase bowls that can be lifted off the floor later on like our Divo Adjustable Bowl Set.
Even if it’s just a short trip to the vet, your puppy will be much safer if restrained by a soft harness or kept in a crate. Get him used to the car early and safely and you’ll set the stage for easy travelling with your pet.
Your puppy’s collar should be soft and comfortable- not so loose that it can slip off (or so heavy that it’s a burden to carry) but loose enough that you can slip two fingers under it. Check your puppy’s collar often to make sure it still fits and ensure his identity disc is engraved with your most current contact information. It’s also good to get your puppy micro-chipped if possible.
Purchasing collars is also a good time to purchase a compatible lead that is suitable for your dog’s breed.
Puppy Play Pen and Outdoor Kennel
It can be extremely helpful to have a place to keep your puppy comfortable and contained. View our range of puppy playpens, which can be used indoors and outdoors. You can also invest in an outdoor kennel with run to allow your dog to send more time safely outdoors.
After gathering these basic items you can expand your doggy welcome kit with things like toys, clothes and grooming items. For any questions about new dog needs, feel free to contact us.
