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.

Essential Small Dog Supplies

For new puppy owners, I highly suggest browsing around this website.  With 500 plus 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.

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.
