What Food Should You Feed Your Puppy?
Choosing the right food to feed your new puppy is crucial to their overall health and well-being and something that should be done with careful thought and consideration.
This is one of the many reasons why we choose to feed our dogs and proudly recommend TLC Whole Life Puppy Food. Delivering the ultimate balance of quality meats, animal fats, vitamins and minerals, TLC Whole Life Puppy Food provides everything your puppy needs to develop into a strong, healthy and energetic dog.
For a complete list of ingredients and how they benefit your puppy please visit:
Dog bowls come in many styles and sizes. We recommend you feed your dog with a stainless steel bowl. They are much easier to clean and sanitize. Plastic bowls can be chewed on and create areas that can harbor bacteria. Plastic bowls also absorb odors, grease and food particles. Your dogs food and water dish should be cleaned in hot soapy water daily and rinsed well or placed in a dish washer to be cleaned. Sometimes it is easier to have 2 sets of dishes so that you can rotate as needed for cleaning.
Crates – Covers – Beds — we also recommend Kuranda beds.
We recommend a wire crate that has the metal divider. This way you can enlarge the crate as your puppy grows.
We’ve conveniently lined up several sizes of crates with appropriate cover and bed to fit the crate.
We recommend Kuranda dog beds. You can order a bed at the following link: Kuranda Dog Beds
