Many of you have asked for an easy way to shop for supplies for bringing your new puppy home. Below are links to products that we use with our dogs and puppies. Most items are through amazon.com. We will continue to add products we love to this list, so check back frequently.
Puppy Preparation - As you prepare for your new puppy, we ask that every family read at least one of the books below. They will make a tremendous difference in the adjustment of a puppy in your home. Very few people know how to handle dogs or what dogs respond to...most of the issues are not with the dog. :)
Food/Treats - All of our puppies are weaned to one of the following foods. It will depend on what the momma of your puppies likes as the puppies will be on the same food. All foods are very high quality, all life stages meaning they are good for both puppies and adults.
Supplements - The following supplements are used as needed around Blueberry Cottage. Coconut oil is great for overall health and a tsp a day can be added to their food. Organic canned pumpkin (not pie filler) works wonders for both constipation and diarrhea. Food grade diatomaceous earth can be used in your yard, their bedding or anywhere else your puppy has been to help with flea and tick control.
Crates / Beds - I like the wire crates with doors at both ends as they are more sturdy than anything else I have found. The sherpa crate pad fits perfectly inside the crates and doesn't let them slide around while in the car.
Small crate (20 lb or less) - 24x18x21
Medium crate (20-35 lbs) - 30x21x24
Medium/Large crate (35-55 lbs) - 36x24x27
Large crate (over 55 lbs) - 42x28x31
Leash / Collar / Harness / Training
We recommend Collars by Woofus. You can reach Carole through her facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/CollarsbyWoofus
Grooming - We have found the following grooming supplies work about the best when it comes to a doodle, however there is no substitute for an excellent groomer.
**Disclosure - We are a participant in several affiliate advertising programs designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to their sites. We are also Life's Abundance Independent Field Representatives and receive commissions for sales of their products.
We occasionally receive product samples from companies to test. We feel it important to test-drive products so that we can speak to how they perform and share our opinions about them: good, bad or indifferent. Our reviews are always fair and honest.
