Congrats On Your New Puppy! Read our advice on Best Puppy Foods, Chews, Harnesses, Leashes & More

Congratulations on your new puppy! Here at Well Bred, we are committed to helping you give your puppy a healthy, happy life. Let’s work together to make sure that your puppy gets a proper start with one of our many healthy, delicious puppy foods! Spend some time browsing our exclusive collection of wholesome, tasty treats to entertaining toys as well, we have everything you will need to help you and your puppy get started! 

Getting your new puppy started on great, nutritious foods is the first step to providing them a healthy, sustainable lifestyle. In our stores, we carry multiple varieties of pet food: raw dog food, lightly/gently cooked dog food, as well as organic dry and wet dog food. Pet food is never one-size-fits-all, our furry friends all require different combinations and concentrations of food to maintain optimal health. 

Best Food for Puppies

At Well Bred, we propose only the best food for dogs available because we care about supporting a wholly healthy lifestyle for your puppy. Our raw foods, freeze dried foods, and dry foods, in comparison with standard popular dog kibble, provide far more of the critical nutrients that are derived naturally from the meat our dogs were meant to consume. We are happy to answer any questions and address any concerns that you may have about the transition to a raw or freeze-dried raw diet so that you are equipped with the utmost knowledge about your pet’s new food.

At Well Bred, we carry the best, top-of-the-line frozen raw dog food products such as Answers Pet Food, Steve’s Real Food, Small Batch and Primal. These brands, among others, are some of the best raw food diets available for puppies. All our frozen raw pet food products are 100% human grade and USDA inspected. If you want your dog to have the healthiest, most natural diet possible, then frozen raw dog food is the answer! Dogs thrive on a raw food diet, just as nature intended for our canine companions. 

If you’re hesitant to jump right into a raw food diet with your pup, consider checking out our gently cooked foods . They are perfect for puppies and adults and no picky eater will refuse those yummy human grade foods made from fresh meats and veggies.   Just defrost and serve it! 

You may also want to consider our freeze-dried dog food selection. The process of freeze drying dog food allows the manufacturers to preserve the nutritional content of the raw food product, as opposed to a cooking technique which strips away some of the essential nutrients in the food. By using a freeze drying method, the natural, wholesome nutrition is maintained throughout.

Reputable brands such as K9 Natural, Stella & Chewy, and Primal offer a broad range of freeze-dried food in multiple different flavors to satisfy even the pickiest puppy. 

We are more than happy to discuss the wide variety of food that we carry, and help you find the best possible solution for your pup.

Best Chews for Puppies

It’s important to remember that your puppy is still a baby – she’ll likely have a prominent chewing habit and more energy than she knows what to do with. At Well Bred, we have just what you need to tackle these troublesome quirks with chews and toys that your puppy will absolutely love!  

We carry a large selection of natural, odor-free bully sticks at each of our four Well Bred locations. Bully sticks are fully natural and digestible, although it is important to keep an eye on your pup and limit chewing to about 20 minutes each time. Our staff will help you choose the best bully sticks for your puppy (including the perfect size) and answer any questions that you may have about safe, supervised chewing. These chews promote excellent & natural dog dental care by removing plaque and tartar, which will protect your puppy from developing serious dental issues such as gingivitis and periodontal disease, in the future. Our bully sticks for puppies will also help with bad doggy breath!

Our bully sticks will keep your puppy occupied for hours; even the toughest chewers need to work hard to get through these treats! Unlike your usual cheap bully sticks, we only keep clean, completely odor-free bully sticks at Well Bred! These unique chews do not have an unpleasant scent, and they will never leave behind any stains. 

Perhaps you’ve already picked up a pack of bully sticks, and you’re interested in trying something new. Our antler chews are our second most popular products at Well Bred. With two variations, split or whole, these best antlers for dogs will be a fun new treat for your pup. Elk, deer, moose, oh my; so many fun antlers to try! 

Best Puppy Toys

If you’re looking for something bold and bright to thrill your new puppy with, consider picking up one of many Kongs! We have durable Kong toys designed specifically for puppies to chew: bones, tires, binkies, and more! We also carry a variety of tough Kong Puppy Wubbas for you and your pup to play with together.

It is important to remember that no toy is 100% indestructible. We cannot guarantee that your pup’s toy will last a lifetime. It’s essential that you supply your new pup with a variety of different toys and chews to keep their mind occupied and satisfy their natural instinct to chew.  

Best Harnesses, Leashes, and More for Puppies

Another way to exercise your pup and help them release a bit of energy is by gearing up and going for a nice, long walk! With the weather finally cooling down, it’s easier than ever to take your pup around the block without worrying about excessive heat. At Well Bred, we have all the equipment you will need! 

Our Puppia harnesses are great fits for a growing pup – these soft harnesses are easily adjustable and comfortable against puppies of any shape and size.

For the adventurer, consider trying on one of our Ruffwear harnesses; these are designed for long, heavy-duty walks or hikes with your pup. Our Ruffwear harnesses pair perfectly with our beautiful leashes! Ruffwear leashes will give you a comfortable grip and great control over your pup. 

Up Country collars & leashes come in an extensive selection of colors and patterns; you’re bound to find just the right one for your pup! Our Up Country products come in a variability of sizes to fit any new puppy. 

Whether it’s a trip around the neighborhood or climbing tough trails, we’ve got the best dog harnesses & leashes that you need!! Our leashes pair perfectly with matching collars. These will set your pup apart from all the other cute new faces at the park! 

Your puppy deserves to know who they are! A shiny, colorful name tag hanging off their new collar will help strangers know what to call your dog and provide all the information necessary to reach you if they get lost. These are durable and the best pet ID tags that will last forever! At Well Bred, we can help you pick out a charming Red Dingo ID tag and personalize it to fit your pup. We will set up the order and have it sent directly to your house!

Lastly, your puppy deserves to feel safe and comfortable in her new home. We recommend picking up a standard, latching, puppy crate and setting it up with a snug Bowser’s puppy pad. These crate pads will make her cage feel like her very own special space. The comfortable beds at Well Bred will look wonderful in every room, allowing you and your new puppy to spend plenty of quality time together.
