New Puppy: Starter Pack


Puppies are one of the most adorable creatures on this planet. They are rambunctious, spontaneous, and they wear their hearts on their soft fur. If you’re thinking of heading down to the local humane society to find a puppy of your very own, remember to get the necessary supplies!

1. Dog Crate

Add a create or kennel to your space to give your pup a place of their own, Whether or not you choose to crate train your new puppy, giving them a place of their own where they can relax and take a nap is essential when making them feel at home. Place a favorite toy and a soft blanket inside, and your puppy will feel right at home. Organize-It offers several attractive dog crates to complement your home’s decor.

Keep your pet contained in one area, to keep them safe and out of trouble, with a handy pet gate. Several pet gates open in the middle so you can easily pass through without needing to remove the entire hallway gate. Organize-It also offers several freestanding pet gates so you can easily move them around as your needs change over the coming weeks.

3. Food Storage

Puppies are mischievous, and eternally hungry. Make sure they don’t snack between meals by storing their kibble inside an airtight storage container. Several food containers allow you to store an entire bag of food inside, bag and all. You can then scoop out portions as needed to feed your pooch. Smaller food containers are perfect for storing treats and rawhide bones.

4. Food and Water Bowl Mats

A food mat is essential for keeping dishes in place while your pet scarfs down their morning or evening meal. It also protects your flooring from spilled kibble and splashed water, making cleanup quick and easy.

5. Toy Storage

Let’s face it: you’re going to buy your pet lots and lots of toys. They are just too cute to resist! From annoying squeaking toys to tug-of-war toys, keep your pup’s playthings safely stored inside the Paw Print Storage Bench (pictured below). The padded lid acts as a seat when closed. Organize-It also offers several bins, totes, and containers to store and organize toys.

6. Store Leashes on Wall Hooks

Potting training is hard. Your pup needs to go out often and they have a hard time controlling their bladder. Because of this, you can always store a leash right next to the door so you can take them out quickly and at a moment’s notice. Install a wall hook by the front door and remember to always replace the leash when you come back inside.
