Starter Kit:

Welcoming a new puppy into your home is an exhilarating experience that brings joy and companionship. However, the excitement of bringing home a furry friend comes with its share of responsibilities and preparations. That's where PuppySpot's Starter Kit comes to the rescue – a comprehensive starter kit designed to make the transition smoother for both you and your new four-legged family member.


1. Premium Dog Bed: A comfortable and cozy spot for your puppy to rest is essential. The Premium Dog Bed included in the Starter Kit provides a designated space for your pup to call its own. It's more than just a bed – it's a secure haven where your puppy can unwind and recharge.

2. Embroidered Family Sherpa Blanket: The Embroidered Family Sherpa Blanket offers warmth and a sense of security. Beyond its practical use, the blanket becomes a comforting item infused with the scent of home and family. This familiarity helps ease any initial anxiety your puppy might experience in a new environment.

10. Tennis Ball (2 Pack): A classic toy that's been a staple in dog ownership for generations. The Tennis Balls are perfect for fetch games, encouraging exercise and honing your pup's retrieval skills.

11. Drawstring Bag: Keeping your puppy's belongings organized is a breeze with the Drawstring Bag. It's a convenient way to store and transport your pup's essentials, whether you're heading to the park or embarking on a journey.

12. Waste Bag Dispenser & Refills: Responsible pet ownership includes keeping your surroundings clean. The Waste Bag Dispenser, coupled with Waste Bag Refills, ensures you're equipped to handle waste during walks.

This registration not only validates the puppy's pedigree but also provides access to exclusive AKC events and services. With our support, new puppy owners can easily navigate the registration process, ensuring their pet's status as a purebred and their eligibility for various AKC programs and resources.
