Henlo, its me again! After my last article on puppyhood blues, I’m here with another article on what are some of the stuff you should get prior to the arrival of your pup!
My 2 cents:
The general rule for food transition (even between kibbles – kibbles), do so slowly over a period of about 7–10 days, mixing an increasing amount of new food with old food each day:
Start with 75% old food mixed with 25% new food for approximately three days. Then mix 50% old with 50% new for approximately three days. (credit @petco.com)
Of course, food bowl and accessories! There will never be enough :”)
|Food bowl||Pee Pad Trays|
|Water bowl||Crate |
(if you do crate training)
|Pee Pads||Dog cologne|
|Chew Toys||Dog bed|
|Training Bag||Dog cooling blanket|
|Leash + Collar / Harness||(Interactive) Toys|
|Nail Grinder||Grooming brush (Ikea)|
|Shampoo (PLC)||Baby gates|
I have hyper-link all the products which we have gotten for Oolong over time in the table above, with some additional notes:
You are going to need A LOT of training treats. So it’s super important to buy a dog training bag (which I included above). It’s important to train your dog from puppyhood to avoid bad behaviors that might be harder to rectify in the future. Some people train with kibbles (to avoid calorie-overdose or diarrhea) but I hate the feeling of kibbles because it’s very sticky when their saliva touches the food.
My top recommendation for training treats. My criteria is on the texture, quality as well as the size.
So many things to buy, so little time to save money 🤡
Expect to spend $200 – $500 for the first month of your puppy’s arrival since there are going to be trial and error as well as purchasing big ticket items such as crate, bowls and accessories. We keep a separate bank account for the dogs so that we are able to track our spending expenditure with him, and we also try not to go too crazy.
It’s fun shopping for your dog because there are so many options out there! If not, you can also redeem free samples to try from pawjourr.com before you commit to the full-sized items.

Who is guilty of buying a tad too much when it comes to their furkids? Definitely me 😂
I love to shop for Milky, but sometimes it seems to me that there are only that few vendors whom I can buy stuff for him – mainly those who enjoy high visibility on Instagram. I always wondered if there’s a way for us to dig the hidden gems (amongst the many, many on Instagram).
