Deciding Which Puppy Products To Buy

Posted February 19th, 2011 by gemainz

It’s a dog’s life, as they say, and there aren’t many places more often frequented by a dog than its bed, so if you’re planning on getting a new puppy you’ll need to make sure you invest in a good bed for him. Don’t forget that your puppy will soon grow, and the bed will need to be big enough to accommodate his growing frame. Make sure he has all the comfort he needs and don’t be tempted to buy a cheap bed – the dog won’t be happy!

Although they also say it’s best to let sleeping dogs lie, it’s a good idea to take them for a walk every now and then. You’ll need to spend some money on a dog lead, whether it be the traditional style or one which expands and contracts to give the dog some freedom to roam. You’ll also need a dog collar and an identity tag which will allow the dog to be returned to you should he be lost or stolen.

Cleanliness is next to godliness (or dogliness!) so you’ll need to make sure you take the proper hygiene precautions with your new puppy. In his younger days, he’ll need to use an indoor litter tray so make sure you explore your options in this respect. You’ll need to make sure you use bio degradable bags to clear up any unwanted gifts he decides to leave you and a couple of bottles of stain and odor remover wouldn’t go amiss!

One of the most rewarding parts of owning a dog is the ability to train it to be loving and obedient. Clicker training products tend to make excellent training aids and dog agility kits are available, too, should you want to go down that route. Toilet training kits will also be a great idea in the early days and should prove to be a worthwhile investment. You may also want to look at training prods or ultrasonic aids to train your dog with.

You need to make sure your dog gets all the attention it needs, and there’s no better way to give a dog attention than to play with it. With so many different types of dog toys available, you really are spoilt for choice. There are balls, pulls, frisbees and ropes, plus many more besides. You should play with your dog regularly to make sure his mind remains stimulated and healthy, not to mention happy! A happy dog really is a joy to behold.
