Our Essentials List For Your New Puppy


Have you been thinking about adding a puppy to your family? With all the craziness of Covid and spending most of your time at home with your family, this might be a perfect time! We recently brought home our 11 week home puppy and found some really amazing companies that I would love to share with you!


*Disclosure: I did receive some products in exchange for this article. As always all my opinions are my own*


Leashes & Collars


Woof Concept


A Canadian brand that started in 2016 in a 150 sq ft garage in Vancouver, British Columbia. They make and sell a variety of dog products including collars, leashes, harnesses, bandanas, and beds! They were kind enough to gift us this beautiful starter kit and while the collar and harness are a tiny bit big we have been using and loving the leash for our pup! You can find their website here to find some amazing Canadian dog products.


Nose & Hearts


Who doesn’t love to support small local businesses!? This is a British Columbian based company that makes beautiful handmade collars, leashes, and more.

We purchased our pups tag from this shop based out of British Columbia. These tags are all hand stamped and made out of brass, aluminum, and stainless steel. Ours arrived very quickly and even included some homemade dog safe jerky.


Pike + Arrow

An Albertan company that has been around since 2016 Pike + Arrow handcrafts beautiful pet ID tags for your furry friends.  With tons of unique designs and custom creations, you will find one that suits your pet perfectly.


Attitude Living


Having a natural pet care line was super important to us and it should be to you as well. Attitude Living is a brand we have worked with in the past and all of their products are made with natural ingredients, vegan, and cruelty-free. They have fantastic pet products including shampoo, grooming wipes, cleaners, and more.




Brushing your dog is important for a variety of reasons. If your pet sheds brushing them daily can help remove excess and lessen the amount that ends up on your furniture and floors. It can also help remove mats from pets with hair and keep their coat healthy. We have brushes from Furnimator for both our dogs for both these reasons!


Baxter & Bella

We recently discovered this newer brand of brushes while shopping for our new pup. We picked up their double-sided comb as our puppy has long hair that is prone to matting. It works like a dream! They have a variety of different types of brushes that I am sure are fantastic as well.





Your pet is going to be spending a ton of time in their bed so it’s pretty important to find one they will like. Casper mattresses have recently come out with a memory foam dog bed and I don’t think you can get any comfier than that!

Whether you have a tiny puppy or a large dog, toys are something you will need plenty of. With our pup, we got many different kinds of toys including several Kong toys for teething, rope bone, and Zippypaw plush toys.



Weathertech Pets

Elevated dishes can be a great thing for your pet! Depending on the size it can help reduce the stress on their neck and back especially if you have an older furry friend. We love this dish set from Weathertech pets as it comes in a bunch of different sizes and a great mat to catch excess food and water.

This was the set we ended up choosing for our pup. One thing we know for sure is that puppies grow ridiculously fast and this set grows with your dog. They also come in a variety of colors.
