New Puppy Supplies
This is a list of things we use and find very useful. Please remember NO Rawhide or Rope Toys. Many unnecessary surgery's have been performed to remove the raw hide and strings from a puppy's intestines. Better safe then sorry.
Taste of the Wild with Ancient Grains
Ancient Mountain with Roasted Lamb
(Regular dog food, not puppy food)
All food and treats must be 25% or less.
AKK do not do well on higher protein foods.
Make sure all treats are made in the USA
All our puppies & adults are free feed.
AKK graze a little all day, usually not all at once.
The best food/water bowls are stainless.
They should be kept clean.
Your puppy is litter box trained. We use Alfalfa pellets,
Can be purchased from Tractor Supply (TSC)
You will also need a low profile dog/cat litter box, and a cat litter scoop.
All of our puppies are litter box trained. Its nice in cases where you are away from home and don't have to worry about taking the puppy/dog outside. Also good on rainy and snowy days.
Pups also take to going outside for potty breaks as they remember the smell of the grassy alfalfa and know its for going potty.
A rake and shedding comb
are good for regular brushing.
We use Mink Sheen shampoo, Good for puppies and adults
And leaves a wonderful smell.
Remember your puppy/adult AKK does not need bathing
Every week or month. Once every 6 months is usually
More then enough.. The AKK is a “Northern Breed” and
Will never have a nasty dog smell. They tend to bathe
Themselves like a cat. Very clean dogs.
We also use baby wipes (No aloe) for eyes and ears on a regular
Aloe is poisonous to dogs..
start out with #1 regular toe nail clippers at about 2 weeks old. Then at about 6 weeks old i start using the grinder #3. A lot of people use the smaller version cordless #4. These are reasonably priced and easy to use.
We have started your puppy out by rubbing its ears and feet on a regular basics so they are use to being rubbed in those areas. This makes it easier to clean their ears and do their nails. So while lounging with your new puppy, rub its ears and feet.
Retractable leashes are usually a bad idea. I have heard of many
Accidents including the leash being jerked out of the owners
Hand with their dog running to get away from this strange
Thing behind them bouncing around. A regular 6 ft leash
Is much safer.
AKK are escape artist, so always be looking for escape routes.
Many AKK have slipped a collar and even backed out of a
Harness. Any time we take our AKK out in public we use
a regular collar with a “Tile” (Info below) on it for easy tracking
and a “Coastal Pet Round Nylon Choke Collar”(Amazon) If using a harness make sure the harness and leash is connected to the choke collar.
Tile Pro has a 400ft range, loudest ring and water proof small and
Attaches to collar. Can be purchased from “Tile” or Amazon
Your puppy needs to be crate trained. Its for his protection and protection for Your house and belongings. AKK are small/medium dogs but believe me, they
Can tear up and destroy anything they can get a a hold of. When no one is home Its safer for the puppy and your house to be in a crate or xpen. Xpens give
More room but the AKK can also climb so you will need a top for it. 36’s High is the better choice.
Toy & Miniature size AKK 30'
Standard size 36'
Hospital pads or/ and fleece blanket is good for the base of the crate.
You may also need a sheet/blanket to cover the crate to make it
More “Cave Like”. We also use shower rugs in crate, but the AKK
Have been known to shred rugs and beds.
This is generic for “Program”
We have been using this for over a year now and it works great.
Approved for 4 week of age and older.
When ordering, make sure to order the appropriate weight for your pup.
Toys, all puppies and dogs love toys. Be sure all toys are tuff and sturdy.
Most AKK love squeaky balls and playing fetch..
Stay away from “Rope” toys, these are very dangerous.
Chews, AKK love Bully Sticks. Some have a bad smell but good for pups cutting teeth. Be careful of small pieces as it is a choke hazard.
Yak chews are also a good chewy.
Greenies are good chews and also good for bad breath and dental cleaning.
