Incorporating Your Interior Style with Your Puppy’s Must-Haves…
The one thing that I was determined to conquer when we got Dash was finding out the best neutral puppy products. Much like if we ever have a child, I do not want any bright-coloured, plastic toys in my home. I mean, there’s no way of avoiding them (believe me I’ve tried), however, I do feel I have managed to flip the pie so that it leans more towards the neutrals.
The important thing was to ensure that we got toys that we suitable for puppy. That meant things for him to chew, cuddle and chase. Trying to blend this with my interior style was difficult but not impossible. And whilst I still don’t feel like I’ve got my house back thanks to his crate taking over my living room, I do feel a win that I haven’t had to compromise too much when it comes to my interior style.
There are so many products on the market, but these are my top suggestions when it comes to neutral puppy products.
The devil in disguise. However, my puppy loves them. And I was determined not to have anything to ugly and plastic for him to play with. Thankfully, he loves these fruit themed toys we found online. We’ve got three so far, apple, pear and blackberry. And I’m planning to add onion to the collection soon (he’s seriously spoilt).
Shop Squeaky Toys.
I cannot recommend this product enough, especially if you have a fast eater. I was always worried Dash would coke on his food, he was eating like it was going to disappear on him. We went for this really nice puzzle bowl, not only does it help with slowing down his eating, but it’s not too offensive. In fact, even in the blue colour that we have, it looks really nice in our kitchen.
Another firm favourite in our house. They are so good for playing tug, fetch, teething and more. I found these neutral rope toys on Amazon and Dash is obsessed. We definitely have a firm favourite, a few that are too big for him now but will come in handy in the future. They are so good for both his puppy and adult teeth so I’m happy for him to play with them as long as he wants. Plus, they are gorgeously neutral, so I don’t mind them scatter over my home.
Bones, Bones & More Bones.
I mean, he is a dog, what did we expect from him. Dash isn’t old enough to have proper bones yet, but we have managed to find one or two that he likes. There’s his favourite which is bright-coloured (typical) but there are these nice ones from Nylabone that are perfect. They are also flavoured so he doesn’t loose interest. There are also other ones as he gets older so we’ll be upgrading as and when we need them.
Whilst in the puppy starter pack there is a bright blue one that I keep hidden in his bed, the two other ones are neutral and are scattered all across the home.
