Jax n Daisy shampoos and lotion are one of our favorites to wash our labs with. It is a great cleaner without harsh chemicals to dry out their skin and it smells great. Great product to add to your shopping list to have before pup comes home.
The Stainless Steel Cury Comb is a great grooming tool to have. It looks intimidating but it is a dream at getting out that stubborn winter fur and the doggos don’t mind at all. Then again, any attention is valuable attention.
We also love the SleekEz grooming brush. This is the brush we use on a regular basis to help cut down on shedding.
Around here we love elk antlers and moose paddles for appropriate chewing. We all know puppies love to chew and when you have options available it will help deter them from chewing your valuables. These will keep those puppers busy for a long time. You can find these at your local feed stores, or you can find quality antlers and paddles from individuals who sell on Facebook. Avoid using any type of rawhide!!
The Kong Tiltz Bowl can help slow down those speed eaters or it is a great way to entertain your pup with a few treats hidden inside. A busy puppy is a happy puppy.
No need to purchase the fancy filler from the store to use the Kong Classic Treat Dispenser. Moisten their regular food with water to make a mush, place it inside and freeze it. Smear peanut butter inside with some of their regular kibble inside. Lots of great ideas on Pinterest and YouTube. It will provide lots of entertainment and stimulation for your dog.
Both the Kong Jumbler Ball and the Tri Jumbler are a hit at our house with our big dogs. We have never had to replace them due to destruction, only to have another one around. These toys are super durable, and the handles allow for great tug of war without using cloth or string type toys that can become an issue if swallowed. We have both kinds in different sizes for our dogs.
Have a variety of toys that stimulates your puppies brains and bodies. They will need toys for tugging, fetching, shaking, dragging, squeaking, chewing and snuggling with. Some toys are best used with your supervision and guidance. Have some fun on Amazon or at your local pet store getting a supply of fun toys to enjoy with your new family member.
The Lupine Martingale collars have a guarantee on them so if anything goes wrong they will be replaced. The martingale collar keeps your little one from slipping out of their collar. Lupine also has leashes, tags and harnesses in fun colors and prints. Remember your dog should be naked if you have more than one dog playing together. There are great risks of dogs getting stuck in each other’s collars during play.
Snoozzy pet beds offer a variety of pet bed. A bed in their crate is not necessary and it may end up being shredded, it’s a lab thing. A good bed outside of their crate is a great place for them to call their own and let you know they are ready for a time out or a nap and allows them to be close to their humans. This brand of bed is a great price and great comfort. Lab and French bulldog approved, we have our own crew of experts.
A crate is a wonderful way to keep your dog safe and keep them from engaging in harmful behaviors when not being supervised through the night. It is also very helpful to assist in potty training. They only need enough room to curl up and lay down. This will deter them from having potty accidents in there. Too much room allows for accidents to happen. Our dogs will choose to go to their crate for down time, we never use a crate as a punishment. Keep their crate a positive place to go, everyone will be happier.
