Hey! I’m Hannah, this is my dog, Hudson. He’s a Cavapoo, and he’s almost 4 years old, but I can’t really remember what life was like without him.
Getting a dog is a big commitment, and it takes a good amount of preparation. When my husband and I were preparing for Hudson’s arrival, we spent hours sifting through hundreds of puppy products online wondering what we should buy.
I’ve been a dog mother for a while now, so I wanted to share with you some of the best dog products that made raising a puppy easier.
A mesh Puppia Soft Harness that is flexible, comfortable, and allows me to walk Hudson without yanking on his collar.
A Kong Classic Dog Toy, so I have something to fill with treats that’ll keep Hudson entertained for hours.
These Bocce’s Bakery Dog Treats that are made from wholesome ingredients and come in dozens of flavors even picky eaters will love.
A bottle of all-natural puppy shampoo made with essential oils, which makes Hudson’s coat smell clean and fresh like lavender and feel silky smooth.
A Fresh Patch training pad, which is essentially a piece of turf that gets delivered to your door each month, and it helped us keep our sanity while housebreaking Hudson.
A sturdy yet comfortable airline-approved pet travel bag that I use whenever I’m traveling with Hudson, whether it’s by plane, train, or car.
A shark life vest for dogs that makes me feel more comfortable during the summertime when I take Hudson swimming (and come on, it’s just straight-up adorable).
