(Greenwich, CT) – With dog ownership on the rise (dog-owning households has increased to 46.3 million, up from 45.6 million according to APPA’s latest survey), APPA is pleased to celebrate National Puppy Day on March 23. Recognizing puppy ownership and the joys they bring to owners’ lives, below are a few necessities for new four-legged friends manufactured by APPA members.

 Protecting and strengthening puppies’ developing teeth and young gums, Dental Fresh Puppy by Synergy Labs can be added to a dog’s water daily. Active ingredients help fight plaque, tartar, and gingivitis.

Designed for puppies up to 10 months old, Planet Dog’s Orbee-Tuff Toys for Pups collection is made up of Orbee-Tuff OrbosÒ with Treat SpotsÒ for Pups and Orbee-Tuff Bones for Pups.  All Orbee-Tuff Toys for Pups come in Big Pup and Lil’ Pup sizes and feature two-color combinations:  purple/teal and teal/pink.

Ideal for housebreaking new puppies, Hartz Home Protection Training Pads contain an antimicrobial to eliminate odor-causing bacteria and have a built-in attractant to help make training easy. Available in a variety of count sizes.  

Satisfying any puppy’s need to chew, Sergeant’s Puppy Teething Bones are high in protein for growing dogs and also rub and gently scrape puppies’ teeth clean.
