I recently adopted the most amazing dog in the universe. She’s a rescue from a puppy mill and adopted from the Louis Animal Foundation, Inc (off of Petfinder.com). Her name was Sunrise, but now goes by Emmie Loo Skeris. She was incredibly scared at first, but with only over a month of training, Emmie Loo has come out of her shell.
Emmie Loo is my very first dog. I had to sift through a lot of stuff to find all the things I need as a pup owner. I’m going to list as many things as I can so if you’re ever interested in ADOPTING, it’ll make your process easier.
Please adopt and don’t buy from a petstore. The animals in petstores come from many abused facilities. If you must buy, please go through a trusted breeder who has all their background information readily availabe for you.
Things you MUST buy:
Harness (pull from the front NOT the back)
Wee wee pads
a Crate that’s big enough for him/her to stand up and lay down (don’t get one too big)
Apple Bitters (for things you don’t want him/her to chew on–like your hands)
Healthy food – Life’s Abundance and Natural Balance
Training and More:
Kate Perry is an awesome trainer! Plus her rates are completely reasonable.
The Dog Wash will completely poop out your dog if you need a doggie daycare.
D is for Doggie is a much more upscaled daycare.
….and please remember that your DOG is a DOG and not a human!
