You got distracted by the good feeling and now you have most of your dog’s food on the floor rather than in its stomach. Having a dog is not easy and is a large responsibility, specifically for new dog parents. With fur all over your clothes, food always falling off from your dog’s utensil, danger from ticks, and more, it gets hectic at times too. Having the basic kit for dog-care is highly essential and strongly suggested.

Look at some of the most important must-haves for a new paw-parent

1. Slow Feeders

Dogs have a hard time containing their excitement when it comes to their meals, especially when untrained. They eat, rather, gobble up their food, which might cause their throats to choke. Slow feeders are containers with several sections and allows little amounts of food to reach up the surface. Hence, the pet eats slower and safer.
