Feed puppy 3 times per day and let them eat all they want. Pay attention to how long it takes them to go potty after eating. Each puppy is a little different but usually it’s 30-45 minutes. This is will help with potty training.
Puppies will go home microchipped. You will be responsible for registering the microchip to have your information for contact. Identifications tags on the collar are recommended as well. Because puppies grow so fast you may want to hold off until they are a bit larger or buy a larger one for later. I will provide a collar when the puppy goes home and a slip leash which is adjustable and great while puppy is still growing.
We feed Purina Pro Plan Sport for all life stages, chicken flavor. We will provide a bag of food for you to take home. You can purchase Purina Pro plan dog food online on chewy.com, or at local pet stores like Pet Barn and Petsmart.
Daily brushing is ideal. You will need a slicker brush, metal comb, nail clippers, and ear rinse. Rubbing puppies paws daily will make it easier, for you or the groomer, to clip their nails.
GROOMING PRODUCTS WE LOVE AND WHERE TO BUY:
Shampoo, conditioner, and detangler combo
Frontline is what I recommend for flea control, but check with your vet.
Be sure to stock up on lots of treats for training. There are many varieties. Try out a few to see which your puppy loves. Be sure to stock up on lots of treats for training. There are many varieties. Try out a few to see which your puppy loves.
Toys like balls and ropes are great for getting some puppy energy out. Chew toys are good for redirecting any bad behavior or nipping.
