Puppy & Pet Supply List

Congratulations on the purchase of your new puppy! Here are is a list of supplies products that we love! 

This shopping list is simply a guide for what you might need. Keep your dog’s size (both now and in the future) in mind as you purchase supplies, but feel free to choose colors and styles that fit your preferences! We are not suggesting that all of these items are absolutely necessary, but want to give you ideas of the tools we’ve found to be helpful in our own families and with our own puppies.

Feeding

Puppy Food

Pawtree Puppy Food is the perfect kibble to start your brand new doodle puppy on, and it is what your puppy is fed at the Doodle Tribe. It is carefully formulated to support your doodle puppy as it grows, and it also assists in brain and vision development. If you choose to use another brand of puppy food, we strongly recommend continuing to use this brand during the transition.

Your puppy will come with a small baggie of this puppy food to help you begin the transition.

Food & Water Bowls

When choosing your food and water bowls, take the size of your puppy and the amount of food they eat into account. Plastic is not a recommended material, as it is easily damaged. Stainless steel is traditionally the preferred option, as it is durable, dishwasher safe, and long-lasting. You can even get them in cute designs or personalized to your Doodle.
