We want all of our puppies to have the very best start in life! We also hope the transition for your family is smooth and easy. To help in this journey, we provide Puppy Care instructions to all our families including immunization schedules, advice on feeding, and potty training and behavior guidance. We are also available to help you throughout the lifetime of your dog! Below you will find links to some of our favorite puppy products. These can be conveniently shipped directly to your home so you will be ready for your new puppy’s arrival!
These are the essentials needed to prepare for puppy’s arrival–just add love! Everything from a durable metal crate (we recommend medium for mini pups, and large for our medium puppies) to food (we love Taste of the Wild) to treats (Stella & Chewy’s!) to our favorite dog “bone” made out of yak milk! The items below are highly recommended as part of a basic puppy starter kit. Your puppy with come with a collar, but you’ll need to bring a leash to pick-up. We love the Lupine leashes because they come with a lifetime warranty! A 2-sided puppy brush is great to start with, and later you’ll need a slicker brush to keep your dog’s coat mat-free; we love the single brush from Master Grooming. These are products we believe in and recommend to all our families.
The first 2 books are essential reading for puppy ownership! The subsequent books address specific situations or behavior problems and may or may not apply to you.
These are some of our favorite toys, all tested and approved by our Lumar Labradoodles! The Kong and Busy Buddy can both be stuffed with Stella & Chewy’s treats. The Kong balls are squeaky and great for playing fetch. And the West Paw toys are indestructible to even the most determined chewers. Finally, what might be the strangest item on our list, the tree trunk with squirrels by Outward Hound Kygen, is the one toy we have found that NO doodle can resist!
