|Hidden Meadow Golden Puppy Checklist
We have taken the time to compile a list that will help you prepare for your new
puppy. We have purchased from all of the merchants we mention and have
nothing but wonderful things to say about our experience with them. We also
like to find the deal of the day and the merchants listed for that particular
product are the cheapest we have found. Dog.com has free shipping on all
orders over $49 and you can upgrade free shipping to FedEx ground for only
$2.95, told you we are bargain hunters! Please feel free to copy and paste this
into a Word Document so you can check items off as they are purchased. Also,
this checklist is applicable to any puppy purchased from any breeder, so even
if you aren’t a Hidden Meadow Parent, please feel free to utilize our knowledge
and experience, making appropriate adjustments where applicable.

flimsy, will crack easily and replacement bottoms are almost as much as a
whole new crate. The crates we recommend are by far superior, no matter the
cost, to ANY we have seen or purchased ourselves. The only ones that we find
comparable, actually the same crate just a bit more expensive and sold under a
different name, are the GoGo Crates from DigitPet.com.

Abundance always comes out on top. Unless you are feeding something of
even higher quality, we strongly recommend keeping your puppy on Life's
Abundance. The same goes for the NuVet supplements. These are not the
same as PetTabs that you can buy anywhere that are full of sugar and fillers.
These mineral supplements are very similar to those recommended by vets for
The two main merchants we suggest purchasing from are either

easier and less confusing for you.
