Micheline’s Pups will send you home with a…

  1. Florida State Health Certifcate
  2. harness and leash
  3. food
  4. natural home made fleas spray (I show you how to make it on your own)
  5. a blanket that has the smell of their siblings on it
  6. We will go over the principles of how to care for you pup now and in the future.

Here is what you need to provide for your pup.

An exercise pen is one option.

Your pup needs to be contained if you want to quickly potty train your fur baby.

There are a few ways to do this depending on your life style and whether you will be leaving your pup home exercise pen

  1. An exercise pen that is 2 ft high

Put it in the living area where you will be spending most of your time.

Your pup will feel secure if they see you.

It should be away from drafts as well.

The smaller training kennel is good if you are home a lot and want to train you pup to use pee pads and potty inside.

This is a useful option even if you want to train your dog to go outdoors exclusively.  Again, be sure it is near where you are.

When a pup first comes home this kennel can be put in your room at night so it gets use to a strange place while being near you.

I would choose the 30 inch long crate and here is the link to purchase it!


Depending on your set up you will need a kennel.

Jeffers kennelI like the fact that the top opens up.

This is the one I use and I would use the tan colored one as it is the right size.

 You can order this kennel by clicking here!

Here is the video of how we have the pen set up in our home.

What to do about Dog Food!

You will be sent home with some dog food that your puppy is currently on.

PLEASE do NOT change your puppies dog food as it will cause digestive upsetThis is critical.

Before ordering your food I would wait until you have your appointment with me to discuss the options.

As you know, I am an advocate of using some raw food and bones in your dogs diet. 


An ideal diet for your dog would be raw, then the second choice is dehydrated raw, then kibble.

People get all bent out of shape over grains but there are good vets with opinions on both sides.

Just know that you will be given some food to go home with and I wouldn’t advise changing anything at first.

This will avoid any kind of digestive upset. 

Must have supplements!

Good health starts in your puppies gut.  You can build their immune system up and help them fight the toxic world they are exposed to every day.

Probiotics will have been given to your dog every day.  Mercola dog probiotic

I use a specially formulated Pet Probiotic that has 50 billion units in it.  Better than most human supplements.  You can buy this probiotic by CLICKING HERE.

If you don’t do anything else, at least do this for your dog.

Mine get this every day as well.  Actually this company sells a great probiotic for humans and I use it myself.Screen Shot 2016-09-05 at 10.53.02 PM

Immune booster

I have tried a few different supplements that are even Rx from the vet, but none have been as good as this one.  Your pup will also have been getting this every day.  I can’t say enough good things about this product.  It helped my picky little Yorkie to start eating again and have some SPARK lol.

You can buy the “SPARK” supplement by CLICKING HERE.

Although these products are expensive, they will last you a long long time.

It is imperative to build your pups immune system up while receiving their vaccines.

Natural Heart Worm Dewormer

Having your dog checked for heartworm once or even twice a year is key to a good preventative program.

HeartClean GOLD will build your dogs immune system, while helping to keep them clear of parasites, including heart worms.

Suggested Flea Products

I have found that “ONLY NATURAL PET”  flea shampoo is also great. 

Combining this shampoo with the home made essential oil spray we provide, keeps your dog smelling wonderful and the flies and fleas run the other way.

You can buy the EasyDefense Shampoo by clicking here!

There are two products that I have used and found to be very effective. For your convenience you can click on these links to order them“Easy Defense Herbal Oil Blend” and “Neem Protect Spray”. If you are the kind of person that does not want to make your own natural  flea remedy, then this works great.  It is an essential oil blend that you put a few drops on your pup once a week.

Food Dishes

I would just say that I think it is ideal to use glass for the dish they eat out of and drink from. 

It is healthier than plastic or metal and they prefer it.

Keep in mind that pups are very picky about their dish.  If they don’t like it they just won’t eat.

You might even have to feed them by hand if they don’t want to eat when you bring them home.


These are all of the products I use on a daily basis and have found them to be extremely good.

I am always trying to improve things and am researching options.

I trust this has been helpful and if you have any questions about else you mind need to do to prepare for you pup, you can use this form below.

Have a blessed day and enjoy your pup!
