The ultimate guide to preparing for your new boujee puppy

Whether you are bringing home a tennis puppy, a fashion model or the ultimate hipster pup, being prepared is essential. As fun and exciting as getting a new dog is, it’s also a lot of responsibility and work.

Now, this may be your first ever pooch or you are already a pro. Either way, we know that you’re going to be a fabulous pet parent!

Ready to get into the nitty-gritty of raising a boujee pup? Let’s do it:


  1. Puppy-proof your home

    It is no secret that puppies (regardless of how boujee they are) eat everything. This includes furniture, charger wires, and plants. There are a few plants that are toxic to dogs and this is where puppy-proofing your house comes in.

    Have a walk through your home and garden to see if you have any toxic plants around. Common plants that are super dangerous for puppies and doggos include:

    – Lilies
    – Aloe vera
    – Ivy
    – Caladium, and
    – Mistletoe (these are rare but still keep an eye out for them)

  2. Secure gap

    Have fencing and gates in place:
    Puppies are notorious escape artists; their inquisitive little minds get them into all sorts of trouble. This is why you need to ensure that your home is secure.

    Close off any gaps in your garden with fencing or gates. Add chicken mesh to any gates that your new pupper could either fit through or under.

    Keep doors to rooms closed:
    If you know that some rooms in your house are not puppy-proof then start getting into habit of keeping those doors closed.

    Pick up choking hazards:
    Pups love to chew, chew, chew! While they’re still in their naughty and teething phase, pick up loose rugs so they don’t have access to them. The main reason for this is the fact that you pooch can choke on whatever they are chewing on.

    Don’t leave important things laying around:
    Ensure that phone and laptop chargers are out of sight for your pooch, the same goes for your Dyson straightener. Puppies are far too good at finding the things you treasure the most or that will cost a fortune to replace! Those Gucci sliders you’re obsessed with will be target number one.

  3. The goodies your fancy pup will need

    You can never have too many toys, accessories, and cleaning supplies for your boujee pup. We made a little checklist for you here to ensure that you have everything ready for your new pooch.

  4. Consider their medical needs

    Your puppy is going to need their vaccinations against many diseases such as parvo and rabies, a microchip, sterilisation, and medical care if they fall ill.

    All of your new pup’s health needs can add up to a pretty hefty bill, so make sure you’ve invested in a great pet insurance provider. You absolutely cannot skimp on your fur baby’s health.

  5. Grooming and care

    Every breed has their own unique grooming needs so do a little bit of research to figure out what your special baby needs.

    You’re welcome to groom them yourself or pamper them with a spa day at the groomers but either way, grooming them is important.

    Keep the following in mind:

    Bathing: Buy puppy shampoo and conditioner. Have a few set towels aside for your pup. You can also purchase a lick mat and add peanut butter to it to keep your pooch busy while bathing those little paws.

    Brushing: Create a calm atmosphere when brushing your pup. You can make use of some boujee treats to reward them as you brush them.

    Nail trimming: We would recommend asking a professional doggy parlor to assist with this.

    Dental care: Your fancy pup needs to have sparkling white teeth meaning you need to regularly brush them too. Dab a little dog-friendly toothpaste on your fingertip and gently brush your pooch’s teeth in circular motions.

  6. The right nutrition

    Puppies love food. Correction, puppies looooove food. They have no concept of feeling “full” so it’s important that you manage their food correctly.

    Find pellets that are suitable to the breed or size of your pup and measure the right amount of grams out.

    The best dog food we recommend is:

    – Acana Dog
    – Eukanuba
    – Hill’s
    – Orijen
    – Royal Canin
    – Vets Choice
    – Weruva

    Your pup will probably need to eat at least 3 – 4 times a day but make sure you feed your fur baby according to the directions on the food packaging.

  7. Training

    Invest in taking your new pup to doggy school. It’s a great way for your dog to socialise with other little puppies while you learn the best tips and tricks to raising a well-behaved doggo.

    We’re wishing you nothing but happiness and love with your new fur baby!
