CRATES & PLAYPENS
We recommend the following:
Under 30lbs: 24-in to 36-in crate
Over 30lbs: 38-in to 50-in crate
We also highly recommend a double door crate with a divider. The divider will help make the crate smaller and adjust to larger as the puppy grows.
Many of our customers and a few employees
have found the Puppy Play Pen to be a lifesaver
when you need a safe place for your puppy to play
when you need to leave the room - or just need a break.
This gives your puppy an extension to his crate (it comes with clips to attach directly to the crate) for more room to explore, relax, and not feel as confined.

Some handy and fun tricks of the trade - many of these products we use when transporting our puppies to their new homes!
Collars, Leashes, & Harnesses
With thousands of choices for collars, leashes, and harnesses out there, we cannot recommend one specific brand for everyone. It boils down to personal preference and style.
Your puppy's neck will be approx 7-10", click the link to chewy.com to see collars available in XS sizes.
For cockapoos, this collar may last his lifetime.
For Goldendoodles and Bernedoodles, you will most likley need to upgrade around 6 months.
We do not recommend retractable leashes. They are more difficult to control and most tend to break at the most inopportune time.
For that reason, we suggest you keep your puppy safe with a sturdy nylon or leather leash. This style is also excellent for leash and obedience training.
There are many harnesses out there to choose from. Pay close attention to the ease of use. Some may take you 30-minutes to put on with lots of clips and snaps to attach all while fighting an excited puppy. Others are a quick slip on, but require precision to ensure safety.
Your puppy's chest at go-home is approx 7-12"
A harness is highly recommended for use with a seatbelt attachment.
