KONG Classic Dog Toy

Image result for Kong toys  

Kong toys are amazing toys for Pembrokes! We have found that Kongs are one of the most durable toys out there and we highly reccomend them. We use Kongs when we crate our Pembrokes as a special treat specific to their crates. Kongs can be stuffed with kibble, treats and peanut butter, you can even freeze them filled with chicken broth and kibble for an awesome summertime treat! (Place in a cup or dish to fill and freeze, we cover the top hole with duct tape while freezing to avoid spilling.

Training Treats

 Zuke's Puppy Naturals Lamb & Chickpea Recipe Puppy Treats - 5 oz. Pouch




*Variety of flavor

We suggest only giving your puppy their kibble as treats until they are doing well with potty training since any change in diet can cause their digestives system to get upset which can result in loose stool.

MidWest iCrate & Crate Cover


We HIGHLY recommend crate training your Pembroke. Dogs in the wild seek out "dens" that are just big enough for them to turn around. Dens provide a feeling of security and safety for the dog similar to what a crate will provide. Crate training is extremely effective when potty training a puppy as dogs do not want to potty where they sleep/spend time. We recommendthat you crate your Pembroke or have them in a secure area when you are not actively engaging with them, at night and when you are gone. The crate should ALWAYS be a positive thing for your Pembroke, we suggest a special treat or toy that they only get when crated. Be sure to crate your Pembroke when you are home for random incriments of time, that way they won’t associate the crate with you leaving.

We also recommend that you purchase a crate cover (you can use a blanket or sheet) which will provide even more security for your Pembroke, please be sure to make sure there is ventilation to prevent your Pembroke from getting to warm. Crating your Pembroke will provide them with their own space (bedroom) in which they can relax and enjoy quiet time.

Most puppies should be able to sleep through the night without a potty break by 4 months of age, but if you’re in doubt, take him outside.

Crating Tips and Suggestions

*Place your crate in a low traffic area (laundry room, garage, spare room).

*Provide white noise when you leave (TV, Radio, fan).

*Start with short increments of crating (10 minutes or so).

*Special treat specific to the crate (Stuffed Kong / special flavored treat).

*Take your Pembroke out to potty as soon as they get out of the crate.

*Pembrokes are highly intelligent and will learn which behaviors get your attention, so if they bark or whine in there crate, be sure to ignore them.
