We are often asked what you need to purchase and how to prepare for the arrival of your new puppy.

When you collect puppy, you will receive a complimentary care pack that includes:

  • Bag of Royal Canin mini puppy biscuits (sample),

  • Puppy blanket

  • Collar and lead

  • A couple of toys and treats

  • Few puppy pads to get you started

  • Seat Belt Harness 

Please Note: If we are flying puppy to you, we are only able to send puppy with a blanket and collar due to logistic and quarantine regulations.


Here are a few other items to consider purchasing: 

Food and Water Bowls: Stainless steel is the best as they don’t rust, break or chip.

Sleeping Place: Ensure you provide a comfortable bed in a quiet area to get your puppy used to their new home and feel safe.

Puppy Crates: They are a great idea to get them settled and keep them safe when you are out and aids with toilet training. 

Brush and Comb: Grooming your puppy regularly gets them used to being handled by people. It also ensures that their coat doesn’t matt.

Puppy Toys: Rubber or rope toys are almost indestructible and help them with teething in the early stages of their life.

Biscuits: You could consider giving them Royal Canin mini puppy biscuits, (in the light blue top bag).

Worming: You might consider worming your puppy with Drontal Puppy Wormer Suspension, its easier than tablets and ensures they have their dose.

Flea Treatment: We use Advocate as a flea treatment but there are numerous products on the market. Best to ask your local vet for available products to consider.

Pet Insurance: We recommend you take out pet insurance to start from the day you collect puppy.  We are not affiliated with any one company in particular but suggest you check the coverage and values each individual company has to offer, ie read their Product Disclosure Statement (PDS).

Future Considerations: We recommend that you speak with your Vet regarding Tick and Heartworm prevention on your first visit after you take puppy home.  They will be able to advise you the best treatment available.
