    Default First Timer From Toronto

    Hello all. I'm a first time Bully owner from Toronto. I will be bringing home my little guy on July 1st and this sight has been wonderful in getting me ready. He will be 9 weeks old when he comes home. I am a bit nervous because this is my first puppy. This is my puppy checklist of things to buy so far:

    Slow feed bowls
    Cage
    Bed
    NuVet supplements
    Grizzly salmon oil
    Malacetic wipes
    Leash
    Nylabones
    Benadryl
    Lemon juice
    Pumpkin

    Please let me know if I'm missing anything. I also wanted to get a play pen for him but don't know what kind to get (plastic or wired)?

    Hi and welcome! We're from the Toronto area too! Looks like you've got a good start list. Do you know what type of food you're going to feed the adorable fella? It's best to slowly wean him off what the breeder is feeding him, if you choose to change the brand.

    Welcome to EBN @Steelstacks, sounds like you're pretty well prepared so what ever Bowser throws at you I'm sure you'll handle it great Bulldogs do best with harness on walks, so if you don't have that maybe it can be something to look into

    You're in for a treat bringing your first bulldog puppy into your home, they are special <3 Looking forward to seeing pictures of him

    Welcome and I too live just north of Toronto. A harness is a great idea. You need to find a good bulldog vet not all of them know a lot about these great dogs. Nothing is better than owning a bully. Good luck

    Default First Timer From Toronto

    Thank you for the warm welcomes! I will post pics of him when I get him. @Karen100, I'm North of Toronto also in Vaughan. Please let me know of any good bulldog vets in the area.

    My breeder is feeding him Alcana but I may switch over to fromms gradually.

    Also, what shampoo should I get for him and I also need advice on nail clippers and a good de shedding brush. Is a furminator worth it? And what should I do about flea and tick prevention? Sorry for the plethora of questions but I want the best for this guy.

    Furminator is well worth the price and a Zoom groom works well too. For the fleas we use Advantix 2 and have had no problems.
