Buying dog accessories can be a blast especially when you have so many options to choose from. You will find so many pet stores and boutiques having range of premium dog food, dog crates, cute beds, toys and so much more. However, if you have brought a new member to your house, here is a list of few things which you should buy from the pet store to welcome your new furry friend.
- Collar and Leash
This is one of the most important things that you will need on the first day when you bring your pup home. A collar will contain the license and identification of your dog which includes your address and phone number. The leash is usually attached to the collar and it is used for taking your dog for a walk.
- Crates and Containment
This is a must for any puppy owner to buy crates or containment for their pups to keep them within in confined area and to train them. This is especially required if you are unable to keep an eye on them. When choosing containment, make sure that you buy one that is comfortable for your pup. He should be able to stand, sit and can stretch inside the crate.
- Food and treats
Your pup might be small but she may need heavy food to develop strength of her organs, bones and skin. For this, you need to get her nutritious dog treats and diets especially in the first year of her life to fulfill her nutritional and energy needs. These dog diets include specially formulated diets for growth and development. The producers of dog foods are aware of these requirements and therefore they incorporate the right combination of carbohydrates, protein, fat, vitamins etc.
- Clothing items for dogs
Coats and dog jackets are essential to protect your dogs from cold weather. Not all dogs require them because most of them have enough fur to protect them. However, this decision making will depend on few factors like- the outside temperature, size of your dog, and the breed. Also, keep in mind that coats and sweaters should be used only when taking them out for a walk during the cold season. These clothing items should not be used when indoors where they can heat up themselves easily.
Apart from the above mentioned things, you need to have food and water bows for your dog along with other grooming supplies like shampoo and conditioner, comb, nail cutter, nail clippers, ear cleaning solution etc.
