Things to have on hand for your new puppy!

  • A baby blanket, old t-shirt or toy that we can rub on mama to send home with your new puppy to remind him of home.
  • A old towel for traveling home (You will be glad you brought it)
  • Paper Towels and baby wipes.
  • Purina  PRO Plan 30/20 All Stages Dry Food  (See picture below - Available from
  • NuVet Plus vitamin Treats- Extremely important and highly recommended! See page explaining these vitamins. Order  directly from manufacturer at                       1-800-474-7044. Use order code 999272
  • Food and water bowls.
  • Safe chew toys. (We prefer small Kongs or Nyla-Bones (See picture below).  NO rawhide please!)
  • A medium sized squeaker toy.
  • Puppy shampoo and conditioner (Be sure it is moisturizing shampoo for puppies and avoid bathing for the first few  days of taking your puppy home.) 
  • A life-stages crate.  Be sure to get the divider so the crate can grow with your puppy.  (A 42" crate will be sufficient for  most size Goldendoodles throughout his life.)
  • A leash and collar.  We recommend an adjustable collar about 9-12" that will expand as your puppy grows.  Your puppy  may not love the leash at first, but it's good to start early.
  • Training treats - milk bones or freeze dried liver treats work well (see picture below)
  • Most important, lots of love!
