We have recently brought home the newest member of our family – Hiro, a wonderful and fun golden retriever puppy! Having pets became even more popular during the Covid pandemic, and it’s got me thinking. What sort of accessories are needed to make a new puppy feel more at home? And that will help us – as homeowners with a new puppy – to get some good training in early.
In this Shop the Look feature I’m going to share my top tips and ideas on how you can use Puppy Accessories to your advantage and how they will encourage good training too!
How to Recognize Puppy Accessories
Puppy Accessories can be anything from water or food bowls to blankets that will be used by the puppy. Specifically, anything that will help to settle your new bundle of joy into their new home! (While keeping your furniture and trim intact of course!)
It’s always a good idea to have lots of different puppy accessories ready for your puppy in advance of their arrival. You won’t know which toy they will enjoy the most until they arrive, and likewise – you won’t know which chew they will take to instead of your furniture! But having different options available from the beginning will get everyone off on the right foot.
Dogs are a wonderful pet to have in the home. Hiro is our second Golden Retriever, and they very quickly become another member of the family. They bring so much joy and happiness to everyone!
The most important thing about bringing a puppy home is to try and introduce a good routine and ground rules from the very start. Have discussions with everyone in the family as to where the puppy will be allowed to go (both now and when they grow up into a full-formed dog) – will they be let upstairs or not? Will they be allowed on the furniture?
You should think about training them away from chewing furniture, to chewing on toys instead. This will save you and your furniture!
