Things to Buy for Your Puppy
Congratulations on your new Labradoodle puppy!
We’ve compiled a list of supplies you might need for bringing your new Freedom Labradoodles’ puppy home, including links to some of our suggested products.
If you have any questions about supplies, feel free to reach out to us for our personal suggestions. We want to make this transition as enjoyable as possible for all.
Nutrition & Health
Nutrion matters. The choice you make plays a vital role in the Health and Longevity of your pet. Here is what we recommend.
We feed and highly recommend LIFE’S ABUNDANCE. —> ORDER at our website.
There is a significant difference in quality so please don’t risk feeding your labradoodle pup anything that may be recalled, or with source ingredients from China.
Life’s Abundance is high quality & recall free.
Check www.dogfoodadvisor.com and use ONLY 5-star food
NuVet Plus Wellness Wafers. All of our dogs & labradoodle puppies get NuVet Plus daily.
NuVet gives our pets the Longest-Healthiest lives possible. The K-9 Wafers fill in vital nutrients missing in processed pet food which boosts immunity, reduces cell damage and supports optimal health. They have a 23 year recall free record, and human grade ingredients.

____ PLEASE be sure to register your microchip!!!
____ Food and water bowls ( stainless steel – avoid plastic which can leach into the food/water )
____ Bed: We like Wash’nZip: www.washnzippetbed.com Easy to clean and hard to destroy! Get the Puppy Proofer, too. For 15% off enter code: FREEDOM at checkout
____ ID tag and collar
____ Puppy waste bags – for walks
____Crate or kennel – It is best to purchase a crate with a divider to remove once they grow. This is the best way to potty train your dog. This isn’t ‘cruel’ but actually gives your puppy comfort like a ‘den’ once they adjust to it. They will cry at first much like a baby adjusting to a crib.
____ Puppy pee pads – if you plan to train your pup indoors at any time
____Clickers for clicker training if this is what you plan to do
____ Paper towels & spot cleaner – for accidents
____ Teething toys
____ Puppy treats – We love Life’s Abundance, and so does your pup. If using others CHECK INGREDIENTS! Many have fillers and ingredients that may cause upset tummies and diarrhea.
____ Good puppy books Our Suggestions:
- How to Behave So Your Dog Behaves – by Sophia Yin
- The Dog Listener – by Jan Fennel
- How to Raise the Perfect Dog Through Puppyhood and Beyond – by Cesar Millan
- The Puppy Primer – by Pat McConnell
____ Shampoo and conditioner – I use an oatmeal based shampoo- NuVet makes one. Don’t use human products- Dogs have different PH and human shampoos are irritating to the skin.
____ Dog brush and comb
____ Nail clipper
____ Dog tooth brush and toothpaste
