So, Dexter will be here in about 3 weeks and I am trying to stock up on supplies. I got a collar and lead and I also have a crate. Now, what else are some must haves? What toys do your puppies love so much?
Kong is fab realy good for helping crate training. but dont go for the past that comes with it its a wast of mony and a bu&&er to clean iff they dont get it all out when playing with it. you can pop treats in, soft cheese, peanutbutter, patta, if your dog is on cand food you can use that too.
do you know if your puppy is coming with a pack, our girls came with a teddy that had been in with mum, but we sent up a blanket to the breeder so it could be put in with mum and the litter, then comes awayu with the puppy.
puppy pads, but i would advise getting the pup used to going outside as early as posible.
bedding, dont go for anything exspensive as if your pup i a bad chewer then its a compleat wast of money.
Before we got Cocoa, we got lots of things.. treats & dog food, toys, a bed, a collar, leash & harness, food bowls & basically anything you can possibly think of! I would suggest getting some chew toys, because cockapoos are known to be very mouthy. We have a bucket where we keep all of Cocoa's toys & when he wants to play with them, he can take them out of the bucket His favorite toy is his squeaky yellow one (which I think looks creepy), but he also likes to play with his rope toy & tennis balls. We also have a rubber ball toy that he can play with as a chew toy, but it has holes so that you can put a treat in it & then the treat is a reward when he gets it out You might also want to get your new pup some clothes for when it's cold outside.. I hope this helps you!
We never planned on getting Benny, and so we had no planning time. When we got him, besides the stuff you got him, we bought him some toys, a brush to brush his hair, a rabbit water feeder to hang on his crate so he could drink, and a bell to place on the door to bell train him. That's all I can remember.
As a puppy, Dexter is going to teethe a lot. We bought Benny puppy toys and treats that would allow him to chew a lot so he wouldn't chew on the furniture. Just look for teething toys.
And a Kong can provide a lot of fun as well. What Benny liked most was when we'd put peanut butter on/in the Kong, freeze it, and give it to him with the frozen peanut butter. He loved licking it all off.
13 week old cockapoo an absolute dream however walking?!??
Charlie will walk on a lead with all the family, my wife, son and I no problem but when it’s only 1 or 2 of us he downs tools and roots to the spot.
Is it normal? I’ve tried the praise and rubbing with and without treats but...
Agreed a price for a Cockapoo puppy in spring 2019, which was £995. I paid a £250 deposit at this time.
We were originally getting the puppy in November 2019 but due to a change in circumstances at home we pushed our “pre-reserve” back until summer 2020. We have now cancelled and got our...
First time posting, but thank you for keeping me sane over the last week! I’ve been scouring this forum for tips and your advice has been invaluable.
My girlfriend and I brought our beautiful Tilly home last weekend. She’s quite a character. I knew it was going to be hard work...
Apologies if this is the wrong thread as I’m new on here. We collected our gorgeous cockapoo Lottie from a breeder in Boston, Lincolnshire in the UK on the 28th May 2020. We know they had another litter of puppies from the same father collected the week before. I’m trying to find any of Lottie’s...
I need some advice. I have found a puppy that I really like at Gamblers Cove Kennel. Has anyone heard of them or anything about them? The breeder seems very nice and helpful, which has been hard to find. They also had many, many great reviews on puppyfind. The puppy is perfect and...
