FOOD for THOUGHT
We raise most of our pups on Bil Jac Small Breed Adult and have also used
Lifes Abundance all Life Stages in the past with good results. Lifes Abundance has
to be ordered online (not available in stores). I will drop you a note and let you know what
your puppy has been raised on thus far.
Ocassionally, mature dogs get bored with their food so we switch around some
when needed. Some foods we fall back on for a change may have corn, wheat or
soy so we are careful to watch for any signs of an allergy. With multiple dogs we
must have a food that works for all of them and finding a food where recalls are
non existent or held at a minimum is not an easy task. Some we have used for a
change up: NutriSource Chicken and Rice, Purina Pro Plan Sport 26/16 All Life
Stages or Sensitive Stomach Salmon
You NEVER want to give your pet Rawhide and there is an abundance of it on the
market... NO NO NO
I Highly Recommend the Porky Puffs and Buffalo Bully Sticks
offered by Lifes Abundance to help prevent bordem for your puppy. With adults nothing
last too long. They usually get a knuckle bones but those can be hard on the teeth.
Porky Puffs unfortunately have been out of stock for quite sometime.
VITAMINS / IMMUNE SUPPORT
Going to a new home and leaving mom, littermates, and the familiar surroundings that it knew can be
stressful on a young puppy. There is more and more exposure to bacteria and viruses in the
environment and the immune system is at a vulnerable point. To help build and maintain
a healthy Immune System we highly recommend NuVet Plus.
For Less than $17 a month, you can give your dog a nourishing immune boosting daily TREAT they love!
NuVet Plus helps to fill the nutritional void that exists in virtually all pets. Even the highest quality dog foods are cooked, and as a result, the heat from cooking kills much of the nutrients. NuVet Plus is cold processed allowing the ingredient's rich nutrients to remain.
NuVet Plus is a full spectrum immune system builder; not just a vitamin, filled with antioxidants, amino acids, enzymes, vitamins, minerals and more
NuVet Plus is natural, no artificial flavors, colors, no fillers, binders, or grains
NuVet Plus is manufactured in the USA in an FDA registered, human pharmaceutical laboratory, almost unheard of in the pet industry. What you see on the label is what you actually get!
NuVet Plus For dogs in their prime - Provides the necessary antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals to sustain peak performance in the prime of their lives.
NuVet Plus can help the animal deal with environmental conditions, including pollutants in the air, pesticides and more.

One is called "The Bully Buddy"
Dog/Puppies are Den Animals and that is where most of them are most comfortable. So, when it comes time to leave your
puppy alone, please dont hesitate to crate your puppy. This also will keep your puppy safe while not being watched.
When outside the crate, Kuranda beds are awesome and non-destructible
You can order your Kuranda HERE - they are all I use when a crate is not needed.
Yep, this breed sheds but only 2 times a year each lasting 6 months (haha)
A weekly brushing with a Pin Brush will keep shedding down to a minimum. For the times of the year when
shedding increased and they are letting loose of their undercoat, an Under Coat Rake works wonders and
increase the number of time a week you are brushing. For healthy paws, it is necessary to keep toenails short.
This is not hard and gets easier each time. You can look online for how to know where to cut.
Here are the tools I think are totally necessary. Some you can find at the Dollar Store
FYI: Please do NOT Shave your Aussie or use a "Furrminator"
