Great article, thanks for sharing.

I personally prefer antlers to rawhide or the processed hollow bones, but to each their own

I have found the majority of those items listed to be helpful while dealing with Danny Boy. He doesn't much care for his KONG though, even when it's stuffed full with peanut butter.
Danny hasn't had any accidents in our room yet, even when I brought him home for the first time so I haven't had to clean up any spills yet, thank goodness!!
I might need to pick up some of that Bitter Apple though because he loves to chew on EVERYTHING he can get his teeth on.

Goodness, I love my baby boy!

Thank you - it IS a great list. We have it all (with our 12 week old little guy) and the only thing that isn't working is the Bitter Apple. We have tried Bitter everything and his urge to seek, chew, and destroy override his sense of taste!

Right now no bathmat, towel, or shoelace is too bitter to chomp. Yes, we have delicious toys, chews, Kongs, hollow bones filled with yummy stuff - but the forbidden bitter tasting goodies are his passion. Is there a #11 on the list that might work?

I underestimated the usefulness of bully sticks. I bought my puppy some for the first time yesterday and it was like a miracle. He stopped biting us, the coffee table, and running around creating mischief for well over an hour as he just chomp chomp chomp'd on the bully stick intently. He settled down and was a well behaved puppy.

great article! I'm like a sponge trying to soak up every bit of puppy info!

my wife and I are picking up our first puppy/golden from Harborview in 3 weeks! I went and walked the pet store last night looking at all the supplies from toys, to bones, to car mats, to shampoos.

so my question is....is there a thread or write up stickied somewhere that everyone has created a list of favorites? like what shampoo should I get (brand, tearless for puppies)? I've read you all dilute it, but how much? should I get ear wipes? or just use cotton balls and rubbing alcohol? what kind of spot cleaner do you use? ive read you need some with enzymes to stop repeat potty trips to the same spot. do dnetastix work? how often should I brush his/her teeth? I've read you guys/gals spritzing listerine mixture on the coat before brushing?

I'm kinda looking for the veterans guide to new dog owners, so I don't make the mistake of buying these expensive products that really aren't needed. Is there anywhere I can find all these tips in a one read? halp!

Great article!

I pretty much have everything in the house, except Ocean is not a fan of stuffed KONG. She will play with it while it's empty. But once I put stuff in and freeze - she could care less
