dog - Before we go into all the handy essentials for puppy-raising, we always want to encourage rescuing your new family member rather than buying from a breeder or a pet store. is a great resource and of course, there’s always your local animal shelter.

To learn more about the nature of store-bought animals, NPR put together a great article revealing the truth about puppy mills.

Starting with Nutrition: Just like a newborn human, starting your puppy off with a strong nutritional foundation will prove beneficial in the long run. Of course a high quality diet will be somewhat more expensive than a low-quality commercial diet. Keep in mind however that cheap food is cheap because of useless “filler” ingredients such as corn, soy, wheat and most other grains. High quality, low processed foods can be fed in smaller amounts which help balance out the cost. Not to mention, better food equals a healthier dog, equals a dog that is less likely to get sick, equals not incessantly wasting money at the vet.

Wholistic Colostrum Powder

Wholistic Colostrum represents nature’s complete nutritional package. Colostrum is fondly known as “Mother’s First Milk” because it is the very first nourishing food that the newborn receives before the production of “milk”. Colostrum is loaded with all the nutrients necessary to sustain life and, furthermore, contains the all-essential Mother’s antibodies that help protect the helpless newborn from the environment’s assault.

Collected from strictly controlled US-origin dairy herds that are fed diets free of meat by-products, hormones, antibiotics and pesticides.


Housebreaking: In our opinion, crate training is the most effective way to house-break your dog. It’s important to keep in mind however that going into the crate should never be a punishment. Your dog should eat his/her meals in the crate, keep toys in the crate, take naps in the crate… in other words, a crate should be a den. Dogs will instinctively avoid defecating where they eat and sleep, so your crate should not be too big or he/she will use the corner as a bathroom. The K-9 Keeper comes with and adjustable barrier that can be moved as your puppy grows.
