Having a go-bag for our puppy Donut has been a lifesaver for us. Any time we go for a walk, we don’t forget a single item because it is all packed away beforehand.

One instance where we fully appreciated a go-bag was when Donut had to be rushed to an emergency vet because she choked on a kibble. In one quick swoop, all her items and vet records were with us when we got to the vet.

I’m here to share the items we pack:

Treats and kibbles:

During walks, vet visits, or training sessions-treats and kibbles are necessary to reward and affirm your pup. We always have a day’s worth of kibbles and treats for our daily activities.

Collapsible Bowl & Water

SLSON Collapsible Dog Bowl 2 Pack, Portable Silicone Pet Feeder, Foldable Expandable for Dog/Cat Food Water Feeding, Travel Bowl for Camping, Light Blue and Green
Taken from Amazon

I generally do not allow Donut to use communal dog bowls in water stations because it only takes one sick dog to use it before Donut is infected. We bought these bowls on Carousell for $2 dollars each and Donut can drink anytime and anywhere.

Portable Fan

OPOLAR 10000mAh 8-Inch Rechargeable Battery Operated Clip on Fan, 4 Speeds Fast Air Circulating USB Fan, Sturdy Clamp Portable for Outdoor Camping Tent Beach or Treadmill Car Personal Desk
Taken from Amazon

Singapore’s weather has been extremely unpredictable. It’s raining very hard then a few minutes later, it fee

ls like the heat of the sun is piercing my skin. I’ve learned to prevent heatstroke by bringing a portable fan for Donut. There isn’t always shade or air-conditioning in places we walk our dog but this fan allows us to make them a bit more comfortable everywhere.

Wet Wipes and Plastic Bags

Pogi's Grooming Wipes - Hypoallergenic Pet Wipes for Dogs & Cats - Plant-Based, Earth-Friendly, Deodorizing Dog Wipes
Taken from Amazon

Accidents happen, dogs get messy. From rolling around mud to pooping and peeing in random places, these items help me get Donut clean again.

Vet Records

You’ll never know when you’ll be needing this go-back quickly for an emergency visit. It’s always good to have your vet records on hand in order to give more information to the acting vet. Additionally, some restaurants and dog friendly places ask for proof of vaccination status before dogs can enter their premises.

We hope this checklist has helped you as a pawparent! With our furkids, it’s always better to be overprepared than underprepared.

My dog was poisoned

Oreo is a two-year-old adopted Japanese Spitz- Alaskan Malamute mix. When we adopted him in 2018, he had severe anxiety and he was not comfortable with people at all. He cried every second he was home and it took a lot of training (both home and professional) to improve his behavior.

Review of Nylabones from a landshark

I have a puppy who is about 20 weeks now. Overall, Donut (my pup) has lost about 8 teeth, and currently, she is still busy biting everything that’s insight. We’ve bought her KONGs which I did a review of here. We’ve also heard good things about Nylabones so we gave some of those toys a try as well.

Visiting Singpet

In Singapore, there are limited shops and stores that I can bring my little Maltipoo, Donut to. When I saw the cute photos of pet owners being able to shop with their pup at Singpet, I knew I had to give it a visit.

Review of KONG Toys: The good and the meh

My tiny almost 2kg dog is a land shark. She’s currently teething and is ready to destroy all the toys (and furniture) that comes her way. We’ve invested a lot in Kong toys due to their reputation of being sturdy but not all of them are equally well made.
