Getting a Puppy.....

August bought the arrival of Bertie... 



People told me a puppy was hard work, "much like a baby" they said....
"Harder than a baby" they said....

I thought they were exaggerating... Let me tell you they were not! 

I am tired, my house isn't quite the same as it once was... My floors have probably never had quite as much anti bacterial cleaner on it.

Bertie is now 13 weeks old, and he is definitely here to stay, he has quickly become part of the family, he sleeps well at night apart from the early starts, eats well, rare accidents in the house... Win! 

Our puppy must haves... 

Crate with comfy bedding, I know not everyone likes crates but this for us was something we wanted to train in, to give Bertie his space away from the girls and to allow me to know he is safe and away from any temptations to chew our furniture when we are away... It's working.

Extendable lead..... We wanted to be able to give him some freedom to explore before he has learnt to come back to us properly, this is a great way to know he can't escape.

Puppy friendly treats...
Bettie is very eager to please, especially when treats are involved.
Current favourites are in this box selected especially for Bertie from Yum.ee
Check them out... 



Toys...
And plenty of them, this aids with the prevention of boredom he loves his toys and often gives us that welcome break from the manic running around.



If you are thinking of getting a puppy I would recommend you have lots of free time especially in those first few weeks, if you think I can be of any help in your new puppy journey please ask...


Xxxxx
