Have you added a new cute and lovable puppy to your home? As you added puppy as pet to your home, it’s your responsibility to look after the necessities and needs of the puppy.
When talking about caring the small puppy, everyone thinks of basic things such as vaccinations and things related to health.
These are the basic things that everyone takes care, but if you are thinking to add comfort to the puppy, then you should know about different items which give sophistication and comfort to the puppy.
These items not only add comfort for your puppy, they also help you in growing the puppy. So before bringing the puppy to home, shop for certain articles which match your puppy requirements.
The most common puppy accessories are:
Puppy bed: Cave shaped bed will be perfect for the puppy to provide it with the required warmth. Sleeping baskets are also a good choice for the puppy, but see that enough blankets are placed for making sleeping in the basket comfortable.
Sleeping arrangements are different for different puppy species; short haired puppies have different sleeping arrangements when compared with long haired puppies.
Blankets: These are useful for providing extra padding in the puppy sleeping basket. You can use a heavy bath towel as the blanket for providing warmth for the puppy.
As your puppy is too small for learning litter box training, see that you place washable blankets as padding. Maintaining health of the puppy is important for having a healthy dog, so regular cleaning of the blankets is prescribed.
Bowls: These are the basic accessories you have to purchase before getting puppy to home. Two bowls must be purchased: one for the puppy food and the other bowl for water.
These bowls should not be mixed with other pet bowls, as infections pass through the saliva. Prefer stainless steel bowls rather than plastic bowls.
Collar: Prefer a collar that suits your puppy personality; not a collar that is impressive to your eyes. First see the comfort of the puppy, as neck of the puppy will be very sensitive. Select a collar [Dog collar] that fits exactly to the neck of the puppy and which does not hurt the puppy.
Toys: Not only dogs, puppies also love to play with toys, these toys keep the puppies busy and avoid the destructive behavior. Toys come in wide colors, ranges and materials.
Choose colors that are attractive and material that is safe. Nylabones are the excellent choice of toys for any puppy species.
All these are treats for your puppy and you can grow your puppy without these treats too. But these treats make the growing of small puppies easier.
