As a breeder and owning large breed dogs ( great danes ), I have found it's not always easy finding large breed toys, treats, shampoos etc..Chewy has it all and prices that can't be beat!! Also free 2 day shipping when you purchase $49 or more!
I'm so grateful to have found an all in one stop shop for my big babies.
I have started on a list of essential items you may possibly need when bringing home your new furry friend!
LIST POSTED BELOW!
Click the link below or "chewy.com" to be directed to the website.
ESSENTIALS FOR YOUR NEW PUP:
First off let's start with FOOD: We have made the switch to TLC All Life Stages brand. I have fount that feeding this food has been a plus with my puppies. They eat less, stay healthy and gain just as much weight. I also save money on all the extra added products that I would've normally added to our regular dog , so it's a win win. Give it a try. If you click the link you will save an extra $5 😀 https://www.tlcpetfood.com/nutrition/blueaxeldanes
Elevated Water/Food bowls
Glass or stainless steel only
(NO PLASTIC)PLASTIC can cause acne and will hold bacteria.
TOYS: We like the Kong and Nylabone Brand. They tend to last longer.
BRUSH: King Komb is awesome!
SHAMPOO: we use coconut base products mostly. Lucy pet products brand in blueberry flavor smells awesome! Veterinarian Formula shampoos are great also. If you'd like to know what I used when your pup Came home just give me a yell:).
Also matching conditioner:)
NAIL TRIMMER: I've started using a dremel on the pups nails before going home. Keeps them from being so sharp and for the most part if you trim after the pup has eatin they won't mind as much.
CRATE: get a 48" with the divider. Pup should only have enough room to stand and turn in until it is completely pottied trained.
Treats for training (only used for this purpose) treats for everyday looking adorable !
All these can be found on chewy website
(Please click the link above when placing your order) all proceeds go toward helping strays in our area.
If you are having trouble keeping weight on, that is normal. They grow at a rapid rate and it's very hard at this age to keep those ribs from showing. If you feel your pup/dog needs a little extra lbs. You can purchase "Dyne for dogs" also located on the chewy website.
These below can be purchased on Revival Animal Health(PLEASE NOTE, IF YOU FEED THE TLC BRAND FOOD, YOU WILL NOT BEED THESE PRODUCTS)
Breeders Edge B Strong
Des health gard probiotic
Love these 2 products and had your pup on it before going home. Probiotics are a must in any dog. It helps them to maintain a healthy immune system and also will help with dreadful diarrhea.. and much more.
Contact me if you have questions!
Another great and price friendly product I use is unrefined coconut oil. This stuff is great and has many benefits. Helps your dog maintain a healthy shiny coat and great for their skin. Helps with shedding! Also adds a flavor that maintains a empty food bowl 😜I have your babies on it now. Start out slowly though when adding to their food. If added to much to quickly they can get diarrhea. It's recommended 1tsp per 10lbs of weight.(YOU WILL NOT NEED THIS IF FEEDING THE TLC DOG FOOD)
I purchase this at Walmart!
