Dog supplies for the new dog in your life

An essential part of bringing a new dog home is having the basic items ready for your new family member.  Dog supplies can be broken down into two categories, consumable and durable.

From our past experiences with new dogs, new owners can go crazy buying stuff for their new dogs and puppies. And you will find products for all budgets!

The more expensive items will be the durable items as they are meant to last. But buying consumable supplies like toys can add up quickly. 

Start slowly.

Break down the supplies into essential and nice-to-have items.

Placing Coco's crate mat in the family room lets her be near us instead of getting on the furniture.

Dog Bedding

We purchased the large Serta Ortho Quilted Memory Foam Crate Mat for the following reasons:

  • Washable removable cover because Coco likes to eat her snacks on it
  • Portable as we put it in the truck for Coco to use while we travel
  • Reasonably priced for the quality of the material used.

The large crate mat dimensions are 35 x 23 x 2-inches. So it will fit in a large sized crate.

Portable dog steps - 2 steps

Portable steps makes it easier than trying to lift our 70-pound pitbull mix into my truck.

Portable Dog Steps

We purchased the Pet Gear Easy Step II Pet Stairs for the following reasons:

  • Makes it easy for our arthritic 70-pound dog to climb in and out of our truck when we travel, take her to the vet, or visit friends and family.
  • The steps are 22 inches wide making it stable and easy for Coco to climb in and out.
  • Paw
    The portable steps has a weight capacity of 150 pounds, more than enough for our dog. 
  • The steps weigh 15 pounds making it easy to pick up and store.  

The 2-step portable dog steps unit measures 22.5 x 16 x 16-inches with a step height of 6 inches.

Now Coco cannot scoot her food dish all over the floor.

Dog Feeder

  • It elevates the food and water bowl reducing the stress on Coco's joints.
  • Now she cannot splash or spill her food on the floor the way she was with individual bowls.
  • The top part of the dog feeder separates from the base making for easier cleaning.

The dog feeder measures 21.5 x 14 x 14-inches.
