Get Ready for Your New Puppy...

Wow - that always sounds like fun! License to shop, and no excuses needed, LOL.


That said - this can also be a long drawn out activity that leads to shopping exhaustion, and no matter how well you do, you always tend to forget something or another.


On the bright side = and considering tight budgets in this economy - not all things are essential to have right away, and can be added on later to round out your pup's needs or as it grows and matures.


 

Buying Used Crates and Playpens

There are a number of places where you can buy your puppy start up supplies = both used and new.

Yard sales and Second Hand Stores
are a great way of scooping up a used playpen at a fraction of the cost a new one costs [be sure to disinfect thoroughly if you go the used route - more info here!].

Many times crates, bedding etc are available on freecycle and other trading forums - be sure to clean, clean, clean and disinfect used items if you are not sure where they came from. Sometimes it is available because a pup outgrew its possessions or ppl got tired of it and dumped it somewhere, other times it is because a pup died to illness and you DO NOT want to bring home parvo, distemper or similar deadly puppy diseases on second hand items!!!

 

Buying Online: Amazon

Local box stores such as Walmart, Kmart, Target etc as well as PetStores have various items on your puppy-buy list, but for me - nothing beats the
Convenience and great selection of Online Shopping.

Especially if you - like me - live in a rural area and need to drive 1-2 hrs to get to a city with various shopping options!

 I'm in my 16th year of raising dogs now, and I think I bought from all of the major pet places online - and trust me, I buy a lot of dog stuff [actually my dog budget is bigger than my people budget, LOL].


 
But after all the dog supply shopping for years - I tend to come back to Amazon again and again, because most anything I need is available there.
I often get combined shipping discounts even if I shop big items and a variety of things throughout the entire dog supply spectrum [and people stuff too], that would normally require to order from 2 or 3 or more companies or several local shopping trips to various towns all over s.e. GA  and still only pay one shipping charge and be done in 30 minutes or less, vs. spending entire afternoons on the road or computer comparing prices and browsing websites.

And if you have Amazon Prime - along with a bunch [actually loads] of freebies - such as free movies, tv episodes, free music downloads, free kindle books and much more - you get free 2Day shipping on many items, including dog food and other supplies.
Amazon just simply works for me, so I will use them here to showcase and sample suggested items on your puppy shopping list. Do price shop around a bit on other places, though I find their prices to be very compatible if not less than at an actual brick+mortar store [especially pet stores, LOL].
 
The variety and selection is simply astounding and if you find the prices comparable, please come back to us here and access Amazon.com through our website to place your orders and purchases!
