@ronniethefrenchie via Outward Hound7. A Leash Holder: I discovered this very important essential by accident. The small dresser drawer located by my front door was originally intended to stash all the hooman gear I needed on the way out, but it quickly converted to my pup’s bin that housed leashes and more. If you don't have space for drawers by the front door, these cute leash holders are colorful and great for keeping leashes and harnesses confined to one area and easily accessible. Benebone in Bacon Flavor. It’s made with real bacon and no artificial flavors and will serve up a delicious experience for the dog who is serious about chewing. 9. Treats: There are lots of all-natural, grain- and preservative-free treats on the market and every pup has his preferences. Trial and error is a great way to find your favorite brand, but also consider using different treats for different occasions! For example, get some training treats like Zukes Mini Natural Treats for obedience, potty training and more and also get some 'just-because-I-ruv-you' treats for the occasional snack. I love Etta Says because they are made from high quality ingredients, come in fun packaging and are always greeted with lots of tail wags.
10. Basic Toys:Don't forget to snag your pup a few basic toys like squeaker mats, stuffing-less toys and a durable ball like the Romp n' Roll to keep them entertained with items other than your shoes!
11. Brain Toys:Brain toys, like the new Odin puzzle treat toy, are a good option for active pups and this one gets points for being as beautiful for your home as it is fun for your dog. Cloud7 tweed blanket is perfect for the car since it rolls up and can be tucked away, while the Toile Dog Blanket is ideal for adding some springtime French décor to the home.
13. An ID Tag or Tracker:One of the first things you should do is I.D. your pet in some way other than his or her microchip -- an implanted scannable chip that stores your information. (If your pup doesn't already have a microchip talk to your vet ASAP!) That way if they wander off, they're traceable to you. This is especially important for a dog moving to a new home and the good news is, there are tons of options! Minimally, snag your pooch a simple collar I.D. tag with your phone number engraved on it. Most pet stores can do this for you in minutes, and you can also order fun and colorful custom I.D. tags online to give your pup some personality! If you want to take additional steps towards tracking your pet, you can get a fancy schmancy tracker which has GPS functionality and more. Love thy Beast Flip Stitch Bed. For dogs who want to snuggle while you’re away, there’s the Snuggle Bed that is made with dirt resistant canvas on one side and luxurious faux fur on the other. It can be customized to suit your pup's preference, whether he or she likes a pod to nestle in, a flat mat to cool off on, or a cave to burrow in.
15. A Dog Park Bag:Repurpose an old beach bag, grocery bag or a snag a fun tote to build your very own dog park grab-and-go bag. Fill it with a bottle of water, a collapsible bowl, a leash, a few treats and a tennis ball so you can spend less time looking for gear and more time fetching. Stash it in your car or hang it in your doggy storage area so you always know where it is.
16. Poop Bags:The fastest way to get your neighbors excited about your new pup is to be a good hooman and pick up after them! Never be caught empty-handed with BarkBox's Poop Pun Poop Bags. These are totally hilarious, eco-friendly and all-around essential. 17. Bark Box Subscription: Playtime is the best thing to give your new pup. Try new treats and toys every month while checking out the new finds together. Your pup will feel the ruv over and over each month and will know they are truly home!
