Bringing your pug puppy home is a memorable experience. Everyone looks forward to the new addition to the family but, before puppy comes home, there are a few things you need to make sure that you purchase and/or have on hand.

Most of the items that you purchase for puppy will be one-time purchases. Acquiring these items on sale at pet department stores can save a ton of money. Clipping coupons from the Sunday newspaper can provide cost-cutting savings for new pet owner as well. I recommend buying all of your pet supplies at Wal-Mart if you have one nearby. You will never find it cheaper unless you buy it used or at a flea market and even then you'll probably pay more.

MA Pug Puppy

Pug puppies need a balanced diet. Don't buy gourmet puppy food just because the commercials on TV say that pets deserve gourmet food. Your pug puppy won't be sitting at the table with a bib around his neck. A simple bag of puppy formula kibble will usually do. It is recommended to always use the same type or brand of dog food because changing your pug's diet too often will cause an upset stomach, constipation, diarrhea and bloating.

Dry food is always recommended for both pug dogs and pug puppies. Dry food helps keep your pugs teeth strong and it also keeps their teeth bright and clean. Small dogs that only eat mushy moist food from a can will always eventually have serious teeth problems and some serious halitosis. The dog food brand that you choose should be chosen based on its nutritious ingredients. Buying the generic doggie kibble is not always the best choice. If you need help, ask your veterinary provider for suggestions. We always use Eukanuba or Iams. These are both top quality brands and are readily available everywhere. Paying a little more for proper nutrition will prolong the life of your pug.

Bowls for water and food will be needed for feeding your pug puppy. One set of bowls will do and they don't have to be fancy, they just need to be durable. Place the food and water bowls in the area where your puppy will regularly receive his/her meals.

Your new Pug will also need somewhere to sleep. It may seem cute for the first few weeks or so to have puppy in the bed with you, but that will get real old quickly and is not recommended. Your puppy can toss and turn while keeping you awake, and actually will like in his own bed better. We crate train our pug puppies and always recommend crate training your pug. Your pug may go through several different beds before it's all said and done, so spending a lot on the first one is not advised.

A crate is where puppy will stay while sleeping and traveling. The crate should allow for growth but not be so large that your puppy is scared of it or will go potty in it. Later, you will show your puppy how to make nice with his second home. Eventually your pug will love its crate and will prefer it over any other place to sleep. They will treat their crate instinctively like a den as their ancestors did in the wild.

Whenever your puppy ventures outdoors, he/she will need to wear a collar and a leash. Leashes come in all colors, shapes, and sizes. Your puppy's collar should allow room for growth. It just needs to keep puppy from getting away, not necessarily make a fashion statement. Your puppy will probably chew on his leash the first few times you put it on him, so spending a fortune on one, is not always a good choice.

To satisfy their chewing habits, give your pug puppy some chew toys. Chew toys designed and made for dogs are safer than giving him/her a real bone to gnaw on. Pieces of the bone could chip off and cause a choking hazard for puppy. Small chew toys like bouncing balls could pose a choking hazard as well if they are smaller than puppy's jaws. So, be conscious about puppy's play toys to make them fun, but more importantly, safe for your pug puppy.

Puppies need a lot of love and care. You will incur many expenses even before his arrival. To make sure that your pug puppy's first day with you is an enjoyable one for everyone involved, stock up on everything that they need before bringing them home.
