Checklist for new dog parents
Step 1: Choose your food & have treats handy
Though it’s less common for dogs, wet food is still a great option to consider. Most wet foods are high in nutrients and can help your pup stay hydrated.
They’re not just a great way to show your love. Bones are great for gnawing, some treats are teeth cleaners, and little ones are an on-the-go must.
Bowl size matters. Make sure the one you choose fits your pup—if you expect her to grow, get ready to switch it up. Don’t forget a travel set.
Step 2: Plan for outdoor adventures
Think about the outings you’ll be using your leash for. Going for a run? Try retractable. Heading down the elevator? Make sure it’s short. Stash an extra in your car just in case.
If you are in the city or a suburb, this is a must. A little container of plastic bags will make clean-up super easy.
It’s not only fun, fetch is a great way to relieve all that pent-up energy. If throwing things is not your strength, pick out something easy to toss.
