From the cuddles and cute moments to the farts and the 3am wake up calls, owning a puppy comes with rewards and new responsibilities. We're here for you every step of the way to ensure your pup gets the best start in life.
Whether you've brought them home already or are preparing to adopt, it's important to get all the essentials well in advance. Puppy proof your house and make sure their environment is both safe and comfortable. Create an area that is just for them such as a laundry or study where you can train them to sleep, and keep them contained during training. Wherever you set up this space, be sure to always provide them with fresh water and good ventilation.
Nutrition and development are integral in the first 12 months of their life. To help make sure you've got the right food and treats, we've provided some suggestions. These will play an important part in finding a routine and teaching good behaviours. Stocking up on essentials like pee pads and shampoos is a great idea to prepare for the clean up after little (or not so little) accidents.
Puppy and breed specific foods are the most popular choices for new puppy parents, although if you're not sure where to start then check out our wide range of options. Grain free, single protein and gluten free diets are available too.
If you don't want to end up with a crowded bed, it's important to lay down the law from day one. Teach your puppy to sleep in their own, ultra-cosy bed by using toys and snuggler beds which will encourage them to sleep through the night and stay warm and cosy. Toys are important for behavioural and skill training because they can be both a reward and a comforter.
Training your puppy takes patience and lots of rewards. Toys are important to reinforce learning in your new pup. Toys can also be a boredom buster to keep them occupied throughout the day.
