New Puppy Checklist: Ensure Your New Best Friend Thrives

That adorable new pup comes with questions. What does a new puppy need? How can I start training? How can I keep him entertained? PetSafe® is here with new puppy essentials as you and your new best friend embark on your life together.

Keep his tummy full

Your pint-sized pup needs consistent meals as he grows. With a Smart Feed, you can keep up with his appetite with meal times and portions scheduled from your phone. A growing puppy wakes up hungry, and some puppies are early risers! A 2 Meal Feeder is a simple way to schedule two meals in advance when you want to sleep in on the weekend!

Keep fresh water flowing

Hydration is critical for a healthy puppy. Encourage him to drink more with fresh, filtered water from a 1 Gallon Fountain or a Seaside Stainless Fountain.

Keep training together

Puppyhood is the time to start training. A Clik-R™ is a useful tool when used with rewards like training treats, and an Easy Walk® Harness helps train him early not to pull on his leash.

Keep him active

Interactive electronic toys like the Kibble Chase™ combine fun exercise with meal time, and the Automatic Ball Launcher is the perfect indoor/outdoor toy for the puppy that never stops playing.

Keep the fun going

There are few things puppies love more than toys and treats. Durable chew toys like the Chompin’ Chicken, Chilly Penguin, and other treat-holding toys combine the best of both worlds for hours of puppy bliss.

Keep him out of trouble

To keep your buddy safely out of mischief, the SSSCAT® Spray Pet Deterrent uses a harmless puff of air to deter him from off-limits places like kitchen counters. For more persistent pups, a ScatMat® uses harmless static correction to teach safe boundaries.

For your puppy’s first trip to the dog park, a Booster Seat provides a secure window seat in your car, and waterproof Seat Covers provide protection from muddy paws.

Keep the outdoors accessible

Give your new puppy the freedom to explore with a PetSafe® pet door. A Sliding Glass Pet Door is great for renters, with no-cut installation. An Extreme Weather Aluminum Pet Door™ lets your pup out while keeping the AC or heat in. With a Wall Entry Pet Door™, you can give him his own special door just about anywhere.

At PetSafe®, we're committed to helping you and your pet enjoy every moment you share together. Visit us at to learn more about how you can give your new puppy a perfect forever home.
