Small Dog Supplies

By Janice A. Jones   | Updated January 31, 2019  |Small Dog Supplies

Small dogs are become surrogate children and just like shopping for children, fur baby parents enjoy shopping and purchasing for their "children" as well. 

But no one likes to waste money and everyone wants a good deal, so we're here to help.

Whether you are a new fur baby parent that needs guidance on what you will need, or an experienced dog owner who is looking for ideas, we want to help. 

AND, just in case you happen to be the aunt or uncle of a new fur baby, we'd like to provide some ideas for gift items to.

Let's start with the essentials and go from there.

Benefits of a Small Dog

There are definite advantages of shopping for small dog supplies as opposed to those needed for large and giant breed dogs.  The biggest advantage is the cost.

  • For most items the price goes up as the size increases

  • Small dog means smaller sized supplies which means less storage needed

  • Fewer Supplies that need to be replenished frequently such as shampoo, wee wee pads, cleaning supplies because you use less for a small dog, thus you save money.

Essential Small Dog Supplies

One of the items in each list have links to other pages on this website.  Those pages are either product reviews or how to pages.  For new puppy owners, I highly suggest browsing around this website.  With almost 500 pages now, there's information you'll find helpful for welcoming your new puppy or adult dog into your home.

All new puppies need the following items no matter what breed.

  • Dog Food and Treats
  • Dog Bowls, Water Bottles (optional)
  • Collar, Harness and Leash
  • Bed/Crate/Blankets
  • Dog Shampoo and Conditioner
  • Dog Brush and other Grooming Tools Depending on Breed
  • Toys, Chews
  • Cleaning supplies and Odor Eliminators

That list is long but doable but most people don't stop there.  There are two more lists, one for more essentials as the budget allows and the last is for luxury items that are fun to have.

I review items from time to time and give you my (almost) unbiased opinions of what works and what doesn't work.  Click on any link above and below to read more about the products, how you use them, why you  need them, and which ones are best. 

Bookmark this page and check back often as the site is constantly evolving.
