Puppy Essentials


A good start of things to have before you bring home a new puppy




Is the house ready? Have you puppy proofed the house, is there a designated area that is safe for puppy when not being supervised? This is your crate and/or playpen.

Have you set up training classes? Or private trainer? This should be set up before the puppy comes home. The first week puppy comes home sets the rules for what is expected. Waiting to take classes or work on training usually results in failure. Training is not stable so it is necessary to have on going training sessions for a successful puppy. Just like kids go to kindergarten then middle school, high school, college… puppy training also has a progression and should be on going. There is a DVD by  Brenda ALOFF we recommend everyone watch before the puppy comes home!

Is the Vet appointment scheduled ? See our Veterinarians page


Do you have someone to let puppy out during the day? Or day care that will take young puppy?


Have you ordered Vitamins from NuVet? Use our breeder code 61311 when ordering


Have you checked out our Training books reccomendation page?

Have you looking into the Puppy Culture Program



Before you get your new puppy/dog we want you to be prepared. Below is a general list of products however, we feed Pro Plan mixed with Royal Canin your puppy will also be on the nuvet vitamins. We will send you home with the food your puppy is on as well as some vitamins unless you already have them. We require that your puppy is on some vitamin and the nuvet is the Best. so why feed anything else.
The reason we like Royal Canin and Pro Plan is because we have carefully researched what is in each of these foods and these two companies are what we like best.

NuVet Pet Vitamins Use  our breeder code 61311 when ordering!

   We recommend that you  
order before your puppy comes home

NuVet Plus™ for Canines product, provide the very best human-grade, natural ingredients available and utilize the latest advances in medical, veterinary and nutritional science and pledge to adhere to the highest standards in products and services.
      NuVet scientists, veterinarians and formulators began with the premise that most pet diets are lacking the proper amounts of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. There are important nutrients that animals once received when they were living in a more primitive environment that are not available in the modern diet. For these reasons and more we recommend putting your new puppy or dog on NuVet Vitamins.

Some of our highly recommended Bathing and Grooming products

I use these shampoos, they smell great and leave the dogs smelling great for days to weeks, taking away that doggy smell. These shampoos should be diluted 10:1 (ten parts water to 1 part shampoo) The reason for diluting shampoo is so you don't leave any in the coat when rinsing it also allows you to apply the shampoo more evenly. I typically use a spray bottle to mix and then spray the shampoo into the coat. This allows you to apply the shampoo throughout the coat evenly without waste.

Grooming products we Love

Our Favorite Grooming Products

I am pretty sure we’ve tried every product line ever made! We were introduced to the Fraser Essentials Canine Cosmetics line in 2020 and were hooked! Our dogs’ skin, coat, and overall condition has never looked so good! Not only does this line of products optimize the condition of the skin and coat but it actually stimulates new growth with regular use! Fraser Essentials are made in Australia and are free from parabens and sulfates. They are enriched with many essential oils and vitamins.

Because of the natural properties of this line it’s safe to use as often as every day and won’t dry the coat out.


when Ordering let them know you heard  about the products from Cherish in the notes section and Gia will get the product shipped out fast.

Things your puppy will need....

Crate: Your puppy will need a crate. This will be his safe place. It will also help you in training your puppy. You may decide you would like to have a larger metal crate 24L x 16 W x 21 H for at home and a smaller plastic crate for travel, 22 L x 13 W x 16 H, we prefer the wire or metal crate. You may also choose to travel with a soft-sided 'Sherpa' style bag, we prefer the Snoozer Roll Around size Medium. These look a bit like a duffel bag. They are small and convenient, but do not leave your puppy alone in one, they can easily scratch their way out.

X-pen: These come in plastic or metal varieties. They can be purchased at a pet store or in the baby department. They allow your puppy to get exercise while you are away or at home but unable to have direct supervision of your puppy. They can also be used outdoors to contain your puppy to keep him safe while you are busy doing other things. They are NOT to be used as an outdoor confinement for your puppy. Papillons are house dogs and must live in the house with you!!

Comb: You will need a metal fine/medium tooth comb for grooming your puppy. The comb is the easiest way to make certain you have gotten all tangles out of his/her coat.

Brush: Wooden or metal bristle or oblong Chris Christensen brush. It is good for smoothing the coat, finish brushing or daily brushing, but can also miss tangles so should not be used as the sole grooming tool. This is my favorite brush.

Spray bottle: Fill with 1 part conditioner and 10 parts water. Spritz on the coat whenever you are going to comb or brush your puppy. This will help keep the coat from breaking.

Collar/Leash: Your puppy will need a collar and leash for whenever you take him out. 1/2" width works well, pick a very soft nylon so it will tangle the coat less. A collar that measures 10" and can be adjusted smaller will fit for the life of your puppy. A 4' or 6' lead will work best. Retractable leads are not recommended. They do not encourage proper leash training nor are they especially safe for puppy or human in congested areas. Another option, other than a collar, is to get a soft harness. This will prevent your puppy from pulling too hard and damaging his esophagus, but you will need to brush out his coat after wearing it to avoid tangles.

Food and water dish: Stainless steel dishes are the best as they are not porous and are cleaned easily. Your puppy will be eating and drinking out of stainless steel dishes and may want to continue to use them.

Food: We feed and highly recommend the following foods
Royal Canin, Biljac, instinct,

Your puppy will also have been started on NuVet vitamins (use order code 61311), and we recommend you purchase these before bringing your puppy home. We give our dogs NuVet vitamins and recommend our puppies continue to receive them.

Bedding: You can use towels, blankets, or buy bedding designed for dog crates. Papillons also like to curl up in a soft doughnut style bed.

Potty pads: Your puppy will be trained to use puppy potty pads. They can either continue using these in a designated area of your home or you can transition them to outdoors.

Toys: Stuffed toys and chew toys/bones. Make certain to give your puppy plenty that is acceptable for him to play and chew on. This will help keep your new puppy out of mischief. Cows hoofs, and Kong products are also acceptable.

Puppy-proof: Make certain to puppy proof your home BEFORE your puppy comes home. Remove electrical cords, hazardous plants, cleaning supplies, plastic bags, potpourri, grapes/raisins, chocolate, and coffee grounds from your puppies reach.
