TRAINING TREATS

Nulo training treats are tiny and soft - best for younger pups. The Stewart's freeze dried beef liver is great long term and can be easily cut into smaller pieces. Nulo freeze dried is also excellent crumbled into food for extra nutrition.

TOYS, TOYS, TOYS!

Toys are fun for you and your puppy. We have found it works best to rotate toys for variety. Buy toys that do not have pieces that can cause a choking hazard.

Very helpful when first introducing your puppy to his new environment. Works well inside the home to create a smaller space for potty training. 30" 

30"LINKAmazon.com

SOFT SIDE FOLDABLE CRATE

We use this crate to transport puppies in the car and it folds up easily when not in use.  30" size is great for mini and medium pups.  If you continue to use a crate for travel; mature medium dogs will eventually need 36" size.  Available in many colors.

This is the Puppy Potty Station set up we use at Juniper Ridge. This works well for us with multiple puppies and is "Industrial Strength".  If you live in a climate where going outside for potty training isn't going to work well or you need a long term solution for an elderly dog, or whatever the reason... these are links to how to build a pretty foolproof station. Place a pee pad inside the tough plastic drip pan and cover with the epoxy coated wire shelf/rack. These work together perfectly. NOTE: In our opinion the grass tray potty station listed above in our Highly Recommended section is simpler, less expensive and easier to manage for a single puppy.

REGENCY WIRE SHELF

This shelf works perfectly over the drip pan. The non-stick surface is easy to clean, it is heavy enough puppies cannot move it, and strong enough to be stepped on. 

24X24Regency Shelf

PUPPY PEE PADS

We use these charcoal activated 24X24" pads. They are cost effective and fit perfectly in our tray system.

WIRTHCO DRIP TRAY

This 24X24" heavyweight polypropylene pan is a perfect fit under the epoxy shelf.
