ALL THE ESSENTIALS
We feed all our dogs Diamond Naturals
Large Breed Puppy. All Puppies will come home with a sample of this food, we recommend to keep your puppy on this food for at least 8 weeks, if you decided to change please do so in a slow process after they have become acclimated to your home. We have our food delivered to our home on auto delivery via amazon. Click on the picture above and it will take you straight to the the amazon website where you can set this up for your family also and save 25% on your first order and 5% on your autoship there after.
This is our go to for treats while training our dogs. This actual dog food topper that our soft and super tasty. We break the pieces into smaller pieces to make it last longer while working with the puppies. These are a fantastic source of nutrition and the dogs absolutely love them. Clicking on the pictures will take you right to amazon to purchase.
Puppy accidents happen, since day one we have been using this product to keep our home smelling fresh (you wouldn't believe there is 20 dogs inside). This product not only smells great but also eliminates the enzymes in dog poo and pee that will make them come back over and over to potty in that spot. This is a must have for even older dogs and is always stocked in our home. Again clicking on the pictures above takes you right to amazon.
A place to call home, our parents all use this kennel, it is fantastic because it grows with the puppy from day 1 until they are adults. Double doors makes it awesome for placing it in different places and cleaning it out because accidents do happen. Click on the pictures above and it takes you right to amazon. You will want to purchase the large size and it comes with a divider panels to keep the puppy in the right part of the kennel.
FOOD BOWL MAT
This food bowl mat is perfect to keep messes in check. With the pups having beards, water collects in those and they drip as they are drinking and walking away. Try and keep the mess to a minimum and protect your floors, we have a few of these and just toss them in the dishwasher each day. Click on the picture to go straight to amazon.
This waterproof bed is perfect for inside the kennel or just on the living room floor. We have multiple of these laying around the house and in various rooms for our big dogs to sleep on. The fact that the inner part is waterproof and the outer part zips off for easy washing is a win in my book. No more trying to wash a dog bed outside or just tossing it because of an accident.

BIG DOG COLLAR
All our puppies go home with their first real collar. This is adjustable and will fit puppy for a few weeks. Once your puppy is ready to work on leash training we just this exact collar on our all dogs. This helps with pulling while on the leash and also has break away snap incase of it getting snagged there wouldn't be a chocking hazard. I highly recommend a great collar to be prepared for puppy training. Click on the picture to go straight to the listing.
Puppy shampoo, your puppy has been getting weekly baths using this shampoo. It is super gentle on the skin and coat, and smells great too. Before you're able to get your puppy to the groomer I'm sure you will need to give them a bath or two. I highly recommend this brand for both pups and adult dogs too.

POTTY TRAINING BELLS
These bells are a lifesaver when it comes to potty training. Hang them on the door that you use to take puppy out to go potty. When you are exiting the door ring the bells with your hand and say go potty. In no time puppy will understand when they ring the bell it means its potty time. Its perfect to teach them and remind you if you aren't paying close attention. Click the picture to go straight to the amazon listing.
