Getting your puppy off to a great start .......
Raw Puppy Food
It is best to start in the early weeks to give your puppies the very best start in life. If your breeding, start on weaning paste at 3-6 weeks old. Weaning paste is easy to feed and is the best supplement to mother’s milk. We stock weaning paste, just pop in to the shop to place an order.
Growing puppies – From 6 weeks on, complete raw Puppy food has everything a growing puppy needs. We have a great selection and will chat through what you can expect over these important months.
Grown up puppies have a great selection of raw options, exciting treats and delicious bones.
Raw food provides the very best start in life for your best friend. A simple graduated progression from Mum’s milk to weaning paste, raw puppy food and onto adult raw is all it takes. We recommend feeding a complete 80/10/10 and balanced puppy food to ensure all vital nutrients are fed within the correct levels at this important developmental stage.
We suggest one of each puppy range which provides a variety of textures, smells and tastes which keeps your puppy – food excited.
Please Order in-shop for Weaning Paste.
Puppy Classes are great and super for socialising. Recall is one of the best tricks I taught my dogs. Teaching your new puppy to sit, walk, heel is great, but an effective recall could save him from injury or save his life. So, what is recall? Recall is a distinctive whistle pattern, recognised only by your dog; a long and a short blow that immediately recalls your dog to your side. Its uses are wide and varied while your dog is off the lead; perhaps an approaching dog, too close to the road, an anxious child or a nearby cat and potential chase, a dog trained on recall simply returns to your side for control and safety.
How do you do it? Start in early months. Before meal time, hide in the house and whistle your distinctive note, keep repeating it till the puppy finds you. They will be super inquisitive to a new sound in the house. Once found give them a very tasty treat. Change hide locations and times, then you’re ready for the outdoors.
Only you will know when it’s the right time to relinquish the dog lead, but if you have invested in your whistle recall training, you’re in your own safe hands.
Now your out, lets talk leads. Puppies grow at a fast rate and rather than buy collar after collar, think about a Slip lead, Adjustable from Puppy to Adult and used as slip or halter. Pop in to the shop for a demonstration.
Finally, Poop! Let’s all use bio-degradable poop bags. During your dog’s life you will use a staggering number of poop bags, so let’s help out the environment and insist on Eco Bio-Degradable Poop Bags.
At about 12 weeks, your puppy will start to lose his puppy teeth and immediately new teeth push through and start to develop for quite a few months until they are super strong and able to easily take on Bones. At Wagging Tail, we have some fun Frozen Raw bones, fish, wings, necks and lots more for mature dogs.
