We have put together a list of must haves when it comes to preparing for your new puppy. Everything on this list we have purchased and used ourselves, and have been extremely happy with!
Food and Treats
We recommend using the following food:
- Purina Pro Plan Puppy Small Breed Chicken & Rice Formula Dry Dog Food
- Purina Pro Plan Focus Puppy Classic Chicken & Brown Rice Entree Canned Dog Food
If you choose, you can also add probiotics to you puppy’s meals, we recommend the following:
We also use Chewy, it is so convenient and they deliver right to your door!
For chews and treats, we also use Health Extension. Rex will do ANYTHING for one of the bacon chips treats. This is what I use for training:
- Bones & Chews 6″ Slim Bully Sticks
- Bundle: Nylabone Teething Pacifier Puppy Chew Toy + N-Bone Puppy Teething Ring Chicken Flavor Dog Treats
- Bones & Chews Curly Bully Stick 7-10″ Dog Treats
- SmartBones Mini Chews
