Your Essentials

There are so many products out there you can buy for your new puppy, it is almost over whelming if you go to one of the bigger pet stores you either come out with far too much or nothing at all! We use Amazon on a daily basis for work and home and it always arrives when it says it will and it is always good quality. So here is a suggested list of essential items, tried and tested by us over the years.

Crate – 36 inch

This is a universal good size of crate for home and the car. I would buy two (home and car) since they are rather annoying to keep moving about!

Crate Mats – to fit 36 inch

These are brilliant. Buy two for each crate, one to use and one to have in the wash.

Donut Bed

The crate can look rather overwhelming in size to a small pup – buy one of these and stick it in your crate for your puppy to snuggle in.

Puppy Bed

In the long run this might get eaten (lets hope not) but they are good to shove in the washing machine and very cosy they are too.
