Depending on your puppy’s weight you will want a plastic crate that fits them just right. We offer 26″ and 28″ plastic crates accommodating a puppy up to 30 lbs or larger wire kennels. A plastic crate offers quiet space where your puppy can shut down and rest. You will want to use this for night time and nap time. You can also use the wire kennel, however, even with a divider it allows for additional room that may be used as an area the puppy thinks it can go potty. It is preferable to have both. I like using the wire kennel as a play pen. You can hang items for the puppy to play in outside, or in a large area in your home. The wire kennel can also be used at sleeping times for larger puppies when they outgrow their smaller crates.
Feeding your puppy should be conducted in his or her kennel when this option is available. Water should be provided outside of the kennel as well. This is why we offer a variety of water dishes and feeding bowls that attach to your kennel.
We recommend Nulo FreeStyle Dry foods for your puppy’s primary source of nutrition. It comes in two flavors which we like to alternate to provide our puppies a variety of tastes. A vitamin supplement also helps provide the nutrients your puppy needs to stay healthy and grow strong. We use and recommend NuVet vitamins.
When your puppy goes potty in the wrong place, you must use an enzyme buster to remove odor or puppy will continue to go potty in the same area. A good product we recommend is Nature’s Miracle Advanced Stain & Odor Eliminator Spray 32oz.
