Supplies Needed for a New Puppy

Food and water bowls:  Rather than focusing on a decorative bowl, simple metal bowls with a weighted bottom are best to prevent spills and chew marks from teething pups.

Dog bed:  You’ll want a dog bed for the inside of the house that is as small as the puppy you’re bringing home. Getting a bed with sides will help them feel more secure as well.

Puppies need a dog food that is specially formulated for them rather than adult dog food, as they require more protein and calories than an adult dog.

Nutrition for Puppies
