    Default Acceessories

    All

    Apology to bore you but i am preparing the needs for my puppy to come end of next week. He will be 3 mths old when arrive.

    1. I have read various discussions on harness vs leash. What would you recommend me to use? I am just worried having read that leash may choke the puppy.

    2. I will crate train my puppy. Do you put water in the bowl or do uou use water bottle hang on the crate?

    3. I buy Kong puppy and nylabone for puppy. Are these ok? If not any recommendation for his toy while crate training?

    Thank you all

    no bore, that's why we are here!!

    1 I would get a harness because like you said a leash may choke
    2 I've used both a bowl and a water bottle. I think a water bottle is best and not as messy but you dont want to get a crate that's to bigg for the pup as it may cause him to pee and poo in it and you dont want that.
    3 kongs and nylabones are wonderful toys

    I tried a collar at first but Frankie would get so excited and start pulling and then choke.. so I got a harness last week and he is doing great with it, I wish I would have tried that first! The Kong and Nylabone are perfect. Since getting the Nylabone, my furniture, remotes and feet are being chewed a lot less frequently!

    @dolphin and @Frankie's Mama
    Thank you.
    Some of my friend warns me to nylabone puppy - as concerned they may choke as they grow up. When did you switch to bigger nylabone?

    Hi @teddokun! you have some great questions. I like the harness too for my bullies. They both have collars but i don't use that for their leashes, I attach the leash to the harness.

    I've used both the hanging water bottle in the crate and the water bowl. I like the bowl, it's just easier I guess. Nothing wrong with the hanging bottle however, imo.

    I would just be very cautious with whatever toy you leave your bulldog with in his crate; not sure if that's what u meant, but don't leave him unsupervised with a toy, especially at first b/c you have no idea how strong a chewer he is yet and he may swallow parts of the toy. Later, when you're more comfortable with knowing what kinds of toys are safe for him then perhaps you can leave the toy with him while he's crated. We have the large Nylabone toys and they've been playing w/those since they were probably a year old. They also still play w/the smaller Kong toys too.

    I'm from Indonesia myself; whereabouts are you residing if you don't mind me asking?

    When the toy is smaller than the lower jaw (you can lay them upside down and lay toy on top of lower jaw to measure this). Then it's time to throw it away.
