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.
Hey, is I have done research and lots of training look ups but nothing seems to be working. Am I expecting too much.
Reggie is 8 weeks and 2 days old and has picked up sit but nothing else. He also cries all the time, even if he is sat at my feet and not mentioning in his crate at night...
Hi everyone, newbie here 👋
I am a soon to be mama of a beautiful 4 week old F2b cockapoo who I have called Duke. Duke is only 4 weeks old so I have another 4 weeks yet until he will be home with me. I want to take this time to make sure I have everything I need for him. What would you say...
I'm new to the forum. I get to collect my beautiful Cockapoo puppy in 2 weeks. She will then be 8 weeks old when I collect.
I'm going a little stir crazy waiting to finally meet her as I've only been able to see her via photo and video chat due to covid 19.
I'm keeping myself busy buy...
We are a bit concerned that we may not be feeding our cockapoo puppy Molly enough. We are still feeding her royal canin three times a day and 3/8 at each meal. Difficult to calculate from the guide as we don't really know what she will weigh as an adult. She is a working cocker miniature...
Hey, hoping for some tips and advice to give our new pup the best start!
We pick our little boy up this week but it will be a 1.5hr drive home and I’m looking for advice for the journey. I’m hoping on my knee is ok but could take the crate if the knee is a big no no? What essentials do I need...
