What Dog Supplies Do I Need For A New Puppy?

Brake Fast Dog BowlSometimes the excitement of bringing a new puppy home for the first time can cloud your judgment and you can end up spending a lot of money on dog supplies that you really don’t need. You may think that that extra toy is really going to make the difference but in reality, most new puppies don’t actually need a lot of things and you can actually save yourself a lot of money by doing some research before purchasing.

There are some bare essentials that any puppy needs in order to live a happy life in their new home but you don’t need to go overboard. You do need to be aware that some dog supply stores may try and get you to spend more money that you need to and recommend all sorts of things that you really don’t need. If you feel like spoiling your dog then by all means go ahead but if you want to do things on a budget follow this guide for a full list of all the dog supplies you will need.

First of all you need to get your new puppy food and water bowls. These are clearly essential and the best option is to choose one that is stainless steel as it is likely to be durable. Plastic is not a good idea as some plastic products contain a substance that can be toxic to your pet. Ceramic bowls tend to look good but can chip and crack easily and if you want to safe money, choose something that is durable.

Your new puppy will need a collar or a harness. There is a wide range of both but you do need to make sure that you choose something that is suitable for your dog’s size. As a general rule of thumb you should be able to fit 2 fingers under the collar. It is a good idea to check your dog’s collar regularly to make sure it is not becoming too tight or loose. This is one of the dog supplies that you really need to get right so make sure you take your time over it.

Buy your new pet some tasty bite-sized dog treats as these will really make him feel at home and happy. This dog supply is also important when it comes to obedience training and house training. You need to reward your dog’s good behavior in some way and dog treats are the perfect solution.

A retractable leash is a good idea for a boisterous puppy. This allows your puppy to run around freely and get some really good exercise but gives you the sort of control you need to keep them safe. A retractable leash is a better option than a standard leash as your puppy won’t experience the same sort of uncomfortable resistance.

Your dog will need a bed so this is a very important one to add to your list of dog supplies. When choosing the bed you need to make sure that your pet can fit comfortably inside it. Don’t be tempted to get something too big as this can make a dog feel insecure and uncomfortable if they have too much space. Make sure his bed is as comfortable as possible as this is where he will spend the majority of his time.

Chew toys are a great addition to any list of dog supplies. As puppies are well-known for their destructive chewing behaviors and chew toys can stop this problem and keep them entertained. Get as many interesting chew toys as possible as this will greatly reduce the risk of your new puppy chewing your favorite shoes.

Dog supplies for a new pooch don’t have to cost the earth, if you do your research and decide what you need before visiting the dog supply store then you can save yourself some money and kit your new canine companion out completely!

Rocket Dog Rescue places non-aggressive dogs into temporary foster homes where they are socialized, spay/neutered, vaccinated, and treated for any medical or behavioral conditions which would otherwise limit their adoptability. They then actively seek out permanent quality homes for these deserving animals through their  volunteer networkonline adoption pageweekend adoption fairs, and neighborhood poster campaigns.

Top 5 Health Benefits of Dog Ownership: 101 Dog Care Tips- Tip 104

They’re cute and cuddly, although a huge responsibility a dog can also be very beneficial to your family. Sure pet ownership has its challenges but it is all worth it when love is reciprocated with an over abundance of licks, wags and pure adoration.  They truly live up to their title as “Man’s Best Friend” in more ways then one. While it is true that dog’s dish out tons of unconditional love and loyalty, they also provide real health benefits to their care takers. Here are a few benefits:

1. Low Blood Pressure. Dog owners have lower blood pressure. Several studies have shown that the simple act of stroking a dog can reduce blood pressure. More recent studies have found that these effects continue throughout the day when people are away from their dog as well. Dog owners cope with stress better and lowered blood pressure is a result of that relationship between a dog and his human.

2. Low Cholesterol. Dog owners have lower cholesterol levels than non-dog owners. They are at less risk of developing heart disease or other cardiovascular problems. In fact, studies show that dog owners overall are healthier than the general population. This can be partially explained by regular walks with the family dog.

3. Happier & Less Grumpy. Dog owners are happier in general. Your pup can turn any frown upside down. It hard to be sad when you look into those puppy eyes. Dog ownership has been shown to reduce loneliness and fight depression in their owners. When people are not lonely and depressed they are happier. Dogs can cause happiness in humans, in part, by causing the release of endorphins in the brain, which are natural anti-depressants produced by the human body. With this increase in mental health, quality of life is increased respectively.

4. Live Longer. Dog owners live longer. Because dog owners cope with stress better and do not suffer from depression as often; they are more likely to live longer. While being happy will not heal a person it can keep them from becoming ill in the first place. Pets provide companionship, healthy relationships and become topics of conversation which aid in social interactions with others. Dogs also increase self esteem and cause humans to feel more compassion for others. All of these factors combined have a dramatically positive effect on the day to day happiness of dog owners.

5. Higher Survival Rates. Dog owners have higher survival rates after serious illness. Some studies have shown that heart attack patients with dogs are twice as likely to be alive one year after their heart attack than their no-dog owning peers. Some experts even believe that dogs affect survival rates to a greater extent than friends or family members. This is most likely explained by the patient’s desire to get better because they feel they need to in order to care for their dog.

Best Bully Sticks Spotlight on a Breed: We Celebrate the West Highland White Terrier Westie

We always love getting emails from our customers & readers asking us to feature their dog or favorite breed for our Best Bully Sticks Spotlight on a Breed blog series every Thursday. As always we are honored to oblige. We are some excited to spotlight the West Highland White Terrier ( aka Westie).

Westie - West Highland White Terrier

Height: Male 11 inches; Female 10 inches

Weight: 15-21 lbs

Coat: The West Highland White Terrier has a weatherproof double coat. The outer coat is straight, long, harsh and wiry. The under coat is dense, short, fluffy, and soft. Their coat is brilliant white in color and lends to this breed an elegant look. They are moderate shedders.

Color: White

Appearance: The West Highland White Terrier is a compact dog with an all-white coat and a button black nose. The skull is wide and round, the muzzle blunt and a slightly shorter than the skull. There is a defined stop. The eyes are dark with a keen, intelligent expression. The teeth should ideally meet in a scissors or level bite. The ears are wide-set and sit erect on the side of the skull. The topline is level and the Westie is slightly longer than he is tall. The tail is 5 to 6 inches in length and carried gaily over the back. The white coat is two inches long and should never be soft or silky to the touch.

Temperament: he West Highland White Terrier is hardy and compact, self assured, energetic, spunky, curious, fearless, tenacious, spirited and well adjusted. They have attained the status of being one of the most popular breeds. They are intelligent and usually display good manners. The Westie is playful but can also be quiet and determined. They are devoted to their family, but are not very interested in being cuddled. They alert to danger by barking and are good watchdogs. They will bark at the slightest noise they hear, but after they are done barking at your guests, they will greet friends with a polite wag of the tail and then go about their business. The Westie is a wonderful family pet that prefers to be the only pet in the home. Westies get along well with other family dogs and enjoy playing with older children. They get along with children over the age of ten who are well behaved.

They can be demanding and assertive, and exhibit true terrier traits. They have a tendency to snap when irritated. The West Highland White Terrier is a social, fun loving breed that does best in an active and attentive household. These little dogs need plenty of walks and interactive play time, and like to be fully involved in all household activity. They are curious and like to get into everything, poking around in closets, cabinets and perching at the window to keep up on the neighborhood happenings. They still possess a strong desire to hunt rodents, so if you live in the suburbs or on a farm, you can be assured your property will remain pest-free, but beware, he is likely to present his “prizes” to you as a gift. They are a versatile dog, who make great companions for families of all sizes and ages.

Health: The life expectancy for a Westie  is over 15 years. Prone to chronic hernias, liver disease, Legg Perthes disease (hip problems), jawbone calcification and skin problems.

What All Dog Owners Need To Know About Dog Bones

As any dog owner will know, dogs adore treats. Whether they are provided with a tasty chew or a bone, this addition into their diet is not only a great way to treat them, but is also a fantastic way in which to praise them for great obedience or learning a new trick or discipline. However, as a dog owner it is important that you are fully aware of which type of dog treat is best suited for your dog to ensure that he gets only the best in terms of vitamins and nutrients and that you get the most for your money.

Dog bones provide a myriad of benefits for dogs aside from acting as a form of entertainment. Gnawing on dog bones can help to satisfy the craving to chew that many dogs possess, helping to stop your dog from chewing on items or furniture within the home. Secondly, giving your dog a bone on a regular basis can help to remove plaque from their teeth, control the level of tartar in the mouth and stimulate their gums which in turn, can help stave off gum disease. For young puppies, chewing dog bones can also help to relieve the pain and discomfort associated with teething. As many dog owners will find, providing your dog with a treat such as a dog bone is also a great form of entertainment and you will find he is kept happy for hours as he chomps away on his treat.

There are a number of different dog bones on the market at the moment and most dogs will possess a specific chewing behavior, meaning that some types of bones may not be suitable for them. If your dog is somewhat of a devourer, you may want to invest in a dog bone which cannot be demolished in mere seconds. In this case, it is advantageous to purchase a nylon based dog bone which is sturdier and will be harder for him to consume in quick succession. You can also purchase a number of specially made long-lasting bones which are beneficial for eager dogs. Natural beef bones can be found with a range of different fillings which are ideal for picky dogs and are also renowned for being long lasting.

If your dog is a little less eager to demolish his dog bone, it is advantageous to look into buying him a rawhide bone which over time will become soft. These can be found in a range of shapes which vary from the traditional dog bone which makes them ideal to be used as a form of toy and treat. However, as this form of dog bone can fall into small pieces easily, it may be worth keeping this treat for inside the home where you can keep an eye on him while he enjoys his treat, and eliminate any blocking or choking.

Similar to humans, dogs can have days where they are disinterested in a certain type of flavor one day and love it the next, so it is a good idea to purchase a number of dog bone types for your special friend to keep him happy. Not only will the frequent ingesting of a dog bone strongly help his dental health and keep him happy and healthy, but it could potentially save you money as he is less interested in chewing on your shoes or furniture! So, treat your dog with a range of fun and tasty dog bones he will enjoy for hours!

Vets Really Do Know Best!

The Vet’s Best range was created by Dr. Dawn Curie Thomas over 25 years ago. Today, Dr. Thomas’s determination to provide natural health care for pets has seen her early formulas transformed in a huge catalog of products. Dr. Thomas was born into a family of scientists, therefore her passion for health and her love of animals was developed at a young age.

Back in the beginning, whilst running her practice Dr. Thomas found that a lot of the standard medicines being prescribed to help sick animals were actually causing a lot of harsh side effects. She didn’t like this idea and vowed to try and find a more natural, yet effective way of healing ill or hurt animals. When you look back to the 1980’s you will see that the idea of using natural health dog treatments was way ahead of its time. Despite the criticism she received, Dr. Thomas heroically carried on in the hope of producing a new type of medicine that really did work.

After years of research and planning she finally encountered success and after word spread of her amazing natural remedies pet owners from all over the country flocked to her to see if she could help to heal their sick animals.

Today the Vet’s Best range is extremely popular and there is no doubt about its effectiveness. Dr. Thomas focuses all her remedies around the skin health of an animal as she is very aware that skin if often a key indicator of overall health. She now specializes in producing remedies for dry, flaky, itchy, raw skin conditions for animals. The Vet’s Best line has been built on the concept that health is nurtured from the inside out, and from the outside in.

One of the best-selling products in the range is the Hot Spot Spray. This alcohol-free spray is gentle and works quickly to calm and relieves painful hot spots on an animal. It doesn’t sting the skin, instead is soothes itchy, raw patches where the animal may have been excessively itching or biting themselves. This product uses all natural ingredients such as Tea Tree Oil, Chamomile and Aloe Vera and is best used in conjunction with Hot Spot Foam and Hot Spot Shampoo.

Another favorite amongst irritated, itchy pets is the Vita-Derm Scratch & Shed Relief. This is a liver flavored liquid food supplement that works to get itching and scratching under control. Most itching in animals is caused by flea allergy dermatitis, pollen allergies and general dry skin but this product doesn’t use potentially harmful steroids in the same way that similar products do. Instead it relies on Marine Lipids, Essential Fatty Acids and Borage Oil which are three ingredients that have been recommended by leading veterinary dermatologists. Vita-Derm Scratch & Shed Relief also gives a great boost to overall health and works from the inside out to promote healthy skin and coat.
