New Puppy Supplies

Let’s go shopping!

This is a list of new puppy supplies both you and your puppy will need.  The links will take you to, which is an Amazon- and Dogwise-affiliate site where I have handpicked all the books and products.

I chose these books and products because:

  • I like and use them.
  • My dog training/behavior consultant colleagues recommend them.
  • They were rated 4 or 5 stars by Amazon users.

I have filtered out all the junk that normally comes up when you look for a category on Amazon — if you want to read about Labrador Retrievers, you don’t have to wade through the Labrador Retriever cookie cutters, Labrador Retriever jewelry, treats, etc., dog books and dog products with less than 4 stars, and duplicate entries.

A portion of the profits from Dog Books Library goes to the Morris Animal Foundation and the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Foundation for research on diseases of dogs.

And if that’s not enough reason to come to Dog Books Library — The other sites are not very attractive and are boring! Dog Books Library has humorous photographs and a very cozy feeling.  Please use it and come back again and again to see what’s new — and let others know about us, too.
