I purchased a few products mainly from Amazon to prepare for my puppy’s homecoming in late August. I’ve found these products absolutely helpful so I thought I’d share.
I brush my puppy’s teeth daily and she loves her beef flavored puppy toothpaste from Paws and Pals. Since she’s teething she practically brushes her own teeth, the toothbrush looks human-like so she has so much fun chewing on it and massaging her gums with the bristles.
Another loved and practical item is her Furry Baby blanket. The fleece texture is safe for her to chew on as she falls asleep. The blanket is super warm as well.
Her puppy blanket set in elephant print size small are adorable and useful. She plays tug-of-war with them and the blankets hold strong. I’ve washed her blankets and beds several times and they’ve held up perfectly.
I started her off with a puppy teething toy set and eventually we went to Petco together and she picked out three more Halloween toys. She especially likes the sheep toy from Petco because of its soft texture. From the teething set her favorites are the rainbow bone, the banana with paper texture, the baby bottle, the donut, and the ropes.
Her Snuggle Puppy came in handy during her first days home. The stuffed animal has a heat pack and battery-powered heart that beats. The heat pack essentially has one use because it is activated by the air and lasts 24 hours. It can last longer if it is put in a zip-lock bag before 24-hours are up. The heartbeat heart has batteries included and it runs for 8 hours when turned on. She likes to play with her snuggle puppy rather than sleep with it but I do think it helps calm her down.
I got her two beds one is somewhat of a let-down, the extra-small pink bed. The extra-small is extremely small. She still fits but after eating she is almost too big for the bed and she’s only 2lbs. She does like to play with the bed and it holds up when she bites into it. When I repurchase I will get a size small instead. She gravitates towards this bed during day naps. She does like to hop into this bed to relax so it does serve its purpose. It is also very cute and comes in several colors.
Her other beige bed is preferred for sleeping at night. There is enough room to tuck some treats and toys on the side to help her settle down to sleep.
Other Products Pictured:
Play Pen – I love that this play pen is hard plastic and it is adaptable. It can work as a fence too to fence off areas like the front door. I spent hours picking this out because there are so many horror stories of puppies dying trying to escape from a cage or crate or getting stuck on the door. I chose a play pen without a door because of those stories. Eventually once she’s a little older I will just leave it partially open so she can go and come into it as she pleases.
Girl Puppy Diapers – another fail because she is so small she slides out of them.
Harness in Pink x-small – it is too big for her right now
Syringes – to administer medicine
Personalized Dog Basket Liner and the dark brown basket was purchased here as well
Happy puppy shopping ❤
