We recommend a metal crate that can be sectioned off with a divider while a puppy is still in training. The divider can be removed as the puppy grows. They are super simple to set up and easy to travel with.
The 'Wet Brush' brand has a great pet brush. We LOVE it! We also recommend using a slicker brush and steel comb.
We use Lambert Kay 'Fresh 'n Clean' scented Shampoo and Creme Rinse. It cleans very well, doesn't dry their fur or skin out, and it leaves them smelling amazing! We go through lots of Shampoo and Conditioner at our house so we love the option to buy it by the gallon.
We love the Kong brand. They make excellent collars, harnesses, and leashes. They do cost more, but they are very durable and well worth the higher price.
We typically treat our dogs with fresh food such as cheese, deli meat, carrots, blueberries, watermelon, cucumber, banana, etc. But when these aren't available we make sure to give our dogs nutrient-dense treats. Our favorite brand is Farmland Traditions Jerky Treats.
Again, we really like Kong brand. They are durable and fun, and they keep our pups entertained for hours. The Classic Kong cone is an all time favorite for our dogs as it can be stuffed with treats that stimulate their brains as they work to get them out.
We make these braided fleece toys and our dogs are OBSESSED with them. They are very durable and the texture of the felt cleans their teeth as they chew on it. We encourage you to avoid stringy rope toys as the strings can be torn off and cause choking/digestion hazards. You can buy these and other cute bandanas at our sister/aunt's online shop www.coddiwomplepetdesigns.com
Nyla Bones are great for teething puppies! They come in countless sizes, shapes, colors and flavors. Linked below is a perfect Nyla Bone starter kit for your teething puppy.
The Snuggle Puppy has been a game changer for our puppies as we introduce them to the crate. This stuffed dog has a heartbeat and heater that calms anxious puppies. It works wonders for our puppies as they transition to their new homes. We HIGHLY recommend this product!
When it comes to dog bowls, it's really up to you. Linked below is a great ceramic dog bowl. It is dishwasher safe, has a non-skidding silicone rim, and comes in lots of fun colors and designs.
The key to potty training is to avoid accidents. This means it's the owner's job to stay on top of supervising the puppy and taking it out regularly; however, in the beginning, accidents happen, and when they do, this is our favorite clean up product. Nature's Miracle Dog Urine Destroyer Foam is simple to use and has an enzyme that discourages re-soiling by removing the odor.
By far one of the best puppy training books out there! It is written so clearly and easy to follow.
We love what this book teaches. It's all about positive reinforcement and teaching your dog good habits.
Teaching a puppy to ring a potty bell is relatively simple and very convenient. Potty bells allow your dog to communicate when they need to go outside, which helps eliminate accidents.
Our dogs LOVE these healthy treats! They're freeze-dried so the odor is minimal. We often cut them into smaller pieces, so they last longer.
Super easy and convenient for filling your dog's Classic Kong cone to keep them entertained.
Great for working out tough mattes and tangles without damaging your pup's coat.
Shines and smooths coat after tangles have been worked out with steel comb.
Super cozy and cute. Our dogs love these beds.
Great pen for when you can't keep a close eye on your puppy.
Of all the dog training books, we recommend this book above all the others! We love Zak's approach to training dogs with solely positive reinforcement and love.
As our dogs live indoors with us. We are always cuddling and loving them, so we wash them often to keep them clean. This spray helps condition their doodle coat to keep them shiny and healthy. Plus it leaves them smelling AMAZING!
All of our puppies start on Purina Pro Plan Savor Puppy chicken. Although we start our puppies on this, we alternate dog food brands as our dogs finish each bag. We do this so our dogs don't get tired of the same brand. It also gives us peace of mind as one brand may have a nutritional requirement the other one doesn't have and vice versa. This helps us make sure we cover all our bases for our dogs nutritionally.
Excellent quality scissors for quick touch-ups. Can be used on facial fur (near eyes), paws, and potty area. This simple at-home grooming makes a world of difference in your pet’s hygiene and keeps them looking fresh even weeks after a grooming—maintaining the cute, well-groomed teddy bear look.
Sniffing is an important way for dogs to get to know the outside world. They “see” the world through their noses just like we see the world through our eyes. So this is the nature of dogs. A wonderful snuffle mat can encourage dogs’ natural instinct. Let them have fun exploring.
Another great-quality pet wash. Recommended by vets, organic ingredients, and aloe-enriched to moisturize. It also contains both shampoo & conditioner. After bathing our puppies with this product, we follow up with conditioning spray (linked below).
It’s important to keep your doodle’s coat nice and hydrated. This conditioning spray is perfect for doing just that, plus it smells AMAZING! We spray our dogs' coats with this after using the Oatmeal Pet Wash (linked above).
