Buying a good crate is very important in house training your new puppy. Dogs are natural cave dwellers and a crate duplicates this in providing a safe, sheltered den that the dogs can relax and sleep in. Most importantly dogs do not like to potty where they lay so it is a valuable tool in housebreaking your new puppy
The Iris 4- Panel Exercise Pen has been one of my favorite purchases for puppies. It is a 4 Panel Pen that comes easily apart for storage or moving. It is the perfect size for Doxie puppies and you can order a cover for the pen also. The adorable door is convenient for easy entry for puppy as well. All of our puppies are familiar with these pens when they become at the age to walk.
Choosing a comfortable bed for your new addition is vital. A good bed provides a soft and comfortable haven for your baby to relax in. It provides warmth and insulation from the cold floor, support for their back and joints, and a place to call their own. If there is one thing that you shouldn't cut corners on, it is a good bed for your dog. A good bed should be easy to clean, provide cushioning and support and should be big enough for them to stretch out in if they like. You may want to consider investing in an orthopedic bed for your dog. Your new best friend will thank you for it!
DOG TEE PEE
Pets LOVE this Pet Bed House. It's a unique native American design that will suit your home decor and will fit effortlessly into your living space. BOTH you and your pet will LOVE it.
FUR FROST PET THROW

Like rope bones or thick cow ears, bully sticks help stimulate jaw muscles when chewing and help remove harmful plaque buildup for cleaner teeth and fresher breath.
GREENIES DENTAL TREATS

Leash training your puppy will take time and patience. As they grow they will find more confidence in exploring their surroundings and will enjoy learning how to walk on a leash. Puppies may not take to leash training immediately so gradually introduce this new activity.
Your puppy will need a collar to keep their tags attached, and to learn how to walk with a leash. Collars can be very beneficial for puppies but please take them off when they are inside a kennel. Sometimes collars can get caught inside the metal.
Dachshunds have long backs and need support when walking on a leash. These harnesses are great to provide the support your puppy needs to grow and stay healthy.
Another crucial product that we absolutely love using are puppy pads! However we have a neat trick. Don't go wasting your time buying the disposable ones at the store. Head over to eBay and purchase machine washable and reusable pads. During the potty training process we use these pads to assist the puppies in learning to use pads. By the time your puppy is ready to go home, your puppy will be familiar with these pads. The convenience of these pads being machine washable and reusable is wonderful. Save money and enjoy pad training a little more with these.
Oh it's going to happen! And it's going to happen ALOT! Be prepared and have your poop bags on hand, (literally lol). Because these puppies poop and they don't care where. During your walks and adventures please make sure to clean up after your puppy. These are amazing bags that are Earth friendly! They are bigger, thicker and leak proof! These rolls fit in most bag dispensers that can be ordered online as well!
STAIN & ODOR REMOVER
Accidents will happen despite our best efforts. As much as we wish we could have a fully potty trained puppy, it is very difficult. Not just because Dachshunds are incredibly difficult to housebreak, but because babies cannot hold their bladders for very long. Best thing to do is equip yourself mentally and physically for accidents and be patient in the potty training process with your puppy.
HOUSE BREAKING SPRAY
Accidents are inevitable and this spray works miracles! Simply spray on the location that you would like your puppy to go and watch how the puppy gets drawn to the area!
