Puppies are a lot of work, but they are worth every ounce of effort. We’ve compiled a list of supplies for you that we recommend for the beginning as well as lifespan of your Standard Poodle Dog. We hope this helps.
Food is most important.
We recommend purchasing this puppy food before bringing puppy home. This is what we introduce once we start weaning our puppies from their mama’s milk, and they do well with it. Please follow the feeding instructions on bag as your puppy grows. If you wish to change puppy food, please make sure you buy a “LARGE BREED PUPPY” formula as this is vital for their development.
Buy a Crate.
Crate Training is important for keeping your puppy safe while you are away, makes them feel secure, and trains them to sleep through the night. We know the first few days and nights are hard, but you will be thankful you did this as it speeds up the potty training process. You want to buy a Large or X-Large size (depending on the brand) with a divider that will grow with your puppy. You want them to be able to sit, stand, lay, and turn around in it, but not enough room to use the bathroom in it.
Grooming is a BIG deal for poodles, especially Standard Poodles. You want to start looking for a groomer if you don’t already have one, and if you are local, we are more than happy to do your dogs’s grooming at our shop in travelers rest.
Here are grooming tools and products we recommend. We are not in partnership with any of these products and we do not get paid for these links. This is just some advice and guidance for you to follow.
