The case for dogs being man’s best friend’ was closed long ago. The jury came back and voted unanimously that dogs; were indeed the best non-human friend a man or woman could have.
So, what can we do to thank dogs for their unwavering loyalty and constant companionship? Other than loving them back completely as they do us, we can find more ways to show it. And luckily for us some of the products below allow us to do just that.
Here you will find our recommended products you will need when you first get a puppy, to help bring your puppy into your forever family. Includes everything you will need for raising a dog.

What’s the best bedding for puppies? Well in our opinion it’s anything that offers them additional comfort and makes sure they can grow and sleep without developing any orthopaedic problems in later life. Like humans, dogs can develop arthritis and other aliments as they get older. Making sure they have a comfy bed that supports their joints is a fantastic way to keep them healthy in the long run.
Pet Fusion’s Ultimate Dog Bed is an excellent for puppy care. The bed is made from cosy memory foam that’s just as comfortable as anything we as people can buy for our own beds! It’s also waterproof, washable and breathable meaning if little accidents happen then no harm done, simply unzip the cover, wash and dry.
- DHA and ARA
I looked into so many dog foods, but found me and my pups loved Blue Buffalo’s Life Protection Formula the most! There is so much dog food on the market but a lot of it simply doesn’t do enough to keep our pets healthy. Blue Buffalo are aware of this and have developed a food for this very purpose, with food specifically for puppies, and adults for when they get a bit older!
While suitable for any puppy care, this natural food is chock full of vitamins and minerals that are essential to a dog maintaining overall good health. It contains absolutely no artificial preservatives or by product meals’, meaning you know every bite your dog takes is helping him or her stay happy and healthy, and that hopefully you’ll have your puppy around for many more years to come.
- Good for all size dogs
- Prevents neck injuries
In most homes, dog owners need to talk in code to make sure our dog doesn’t hear us say the W word. Saying the W word before we’re ready is enough to make any dog excited meaning once we’ve said it, we have to do it. Of course, the W word is walk’ or walkies’. It’s the time during a day when our dog gets to go out and explore nature, taking in all the new smells and really getting some exercise.
A walk is an essential part of puppy care and most dogs need at least an hour every day. The problem is many can become excitable at the mention of the word walk and this can take a toll on us when their enthusiasm gets too much. This adjustable dog harness by Rabbitgoo prevents even the largest and strongest dogs from being able to pull us. Not only is harness walking safer for us as owners, but it also gives us a degree of control that neck leads don’t provide. Harnesses are also comfier for dogs, they feel much more free and don’t run the risk of neck injury or choking should they become overly exuberant.
- 5 ft long
- Reflective, heavy duty leash
- Padded handle
Having a leash is one of the most important steps when having a dog. From the moment you’re getting a puppy to adulthood of your dog, your pet will always need a leash. To exercise your dog, you must use a leash, or just in general taking the dog anywhere (puppy training, to the vet, to the beach even!) you need to be able to control your curious puppy.
The Baapet leash is a heavy duty dog leash, making sure to not be weak for any kind of dog, strong or not. It has the added benefit of being reflective, for early morning or late night walks, is 5 foot long and has a padded handle. I have a different colour each for my puppies and have full control and faith in the lead. A must for all puppy supplies!
- Room for all your information
- Strong, durable tag
One of the most important things to have on your puppy should be a little dog tag attached to their collar. A dog tag is a must have for a new puppy shopping list. If your puppy somehow escaped from your backyard, or wondered off while on a walk, other people would be able to identify whose puppy it is, and contact you to know they’re safe.
The tag by GoTags has room for 8 lines of engraving, 4 on each side. I used this tag for both my puppies, and have had no problems with it and it has lasted all these years already! I have my dogs name, my phone number, name and address on my tag so my babies will always find their way back to me!
- 32 ounces
- Stainless steel
This stainless steel, non-slip dog bowl, as the name implies is an absolute beast! And the best thing about it is it’s great for our very own beautiful beasts who get to eat and drink from it.
The top part of the bowl is stainless steel which is a hygienic and easy to clean surface for the dog to use. But beneath this the bowl uses a sturdy ceramic to keep it fixed in place.
This means that even the messiest dog, that splash’s their food or water all over the floor will not be able to drive their bowl around like they normally do. So many dog bowls are too light, and an excited or hungry dog is able to slide them, and their contents all over our kitchen flood. This is a Yeti that doesn’t move far, no matter how strong the dog is. It is the perfect bowl for your puppy supplies.
- Bone Marrow and Calcium treats
- Helps keep bone strength as dogs get older
- Maintains white teeth
Stuffed with real thick bone marrow and calcium these tasty treats help your dog maintain strong bones and pearly white teeth. Milk Bone are market leaders when creating yummy dog treats that are also healthy. They achieve this by making sure their treats are loaded with nutrients and are made from ingredients which dogs absolutely adore.
My dog’s vet will always tell us to ease off on the treats to make sure our dog stays healthy. This is always good advice for any brand of treat, but it’s good to know there is a brand out there that encourages and promotes good health for our puppy care, that our pups will love!
- 3 levels of shock
- Safe for puppies while in training
Giving your four-legged friend a mild electric shock as a puppy may sound like the opposite of love, after all nobody likes an electric shock. But conditioning’ is the best way to teach a dog what and what not to do. The truth is this item may be a vital part of your new puppy shopping list.
Dogs don’t speak our language and don’t understand concepts like safety and common sense. It’s up to us to teach them ideas like cause and effect in a way that they’ll understand. A treat for good behaviour and a mild buzz for poor behaviour, in time this teaches a puppy what is sensible to do, and that by listening to you is the best way for you both to stay safe together.
Dog Care’s product is a training collar and not designed for use once the dog is older and trained, but it can help a dog grow up with a sense of boundaries. It works from up to 330 feet and has three different modes of shock. The mildest being a simple vibration for recall while the other two are more noticeable shocks, which exist to encourage the dog to cease doing something it shouldn’t and learn not to again.
- Leak proof
- Thick bags
- 300 plus bags
- Small and convenient
Sometimes your dog doesn’t know that going for a walk means they don’t need to wait till they get home to go to the toilet like us humans. My puppies used to poop on the lead all the time on walks (and still do occasionally). This is completely fine, as long as you always pick up after your fury friend (would you like stepping in dog poo on your way to work?). To save yourself this drama of leaving the poop behind, some new puppy advice is having a little bag dispenser and bags inside for any moments notice can help dispose of your dogs doings.
These bags come with the bag dispenser, are leak proof and thick for your protection when dealing with the poop. You can stock up on lots of bags or start small, and buy more when you need them in the future. Just clip them onto your dog’s leash and it’s conveniently with you wherever you go!
- Built to last
- Chew toys for any size dog
- Some proceeds go to a charity to help less fortunate dogs!
Pacific Pups are a company that produce a range of dog toys and products to keep our pooches happy while we go about our day. If your dog is what’s considered an aggressive chewer’ meaning he/she has a tendency to chew and destroy toys at a rapid rate, then Pacific Pups products will keep them occupied for longer than most toys can. This is because these toys are built to last for the puppy needs. They take even the biggest dogs with the sharpest teeth a long time to chew threw, this should save you some money in the long run!
This particular set also comes with a free giraffe rope toy, making the set contain 11 different dog toys. Also some of the proceeds go to charity, which I really adored. Pacific Pups proudly support Pacific Pup Resuce, which means buying these products is aiding in dog rescue efforts, helping other less fortunate dogs become as loved and valued as yours!
