We exclusively use Life's Abundance, TLC Whole Life Pet Food, pawTree, and NuVet products.
We wean our puppies onto TLC Pet Food Whole Life & Life's Abundance Puppy Formulas, as well as NuVet Plus K9 Immune System Builder Powder. We also love the other products by Life's Abundance, TLC Pet Food, and pawTree!
We highly recommend you to continue using these products for the life of your dog. If you continue to use TLC Whole Life Pet Food and/or Life's Abundance Puppy/Dog Food & NuVet Plus Immune System Builder on a monthly basis which I highly recommend, your Health Guarantee will become 3 years. Your Puppy/Dog must be on TLC Whole Life Pet Food and/or Life's Abundance Puppy/Dog Food & NuVet during this entire three year period. If not, you will obtain our 2 year Health Guarantee.
See Our 2-3 Year Health Guarantee.
To add even more variety, we also allow the use of pawTree Dog Food after the age of 10 months to be added to your food rotation for our 3 year Health Guarantee. Be sure to also become a PawClub Member to earn points on your orders! https://shop.pawtree.com/aboveandbeyondstandards/paw-club
In the meantime, be sure to check out the pawTreats! We love these along with Life’s Abundance treats too!
Above and Beyond Standards uses food rotation to optimize nutrition. We feed and wean our dogs and puppies onto both Life’s Abundance Puppy Food, as well as TLC Whole Life Puppy Food. We request you purchase a few items for your little one prior to arriving home so they can continue to be fed the same Premium Puppy Food during their transition home to you. This will help them during their transition home period that will already be stressful and their GI System does not need a change in food during their first months with you.
Rotating foods on a monthly basis is a great way to optimize nutrition. With the different brands of food you are providing different protein sources, as well as different formulas of grains, vegetables, fruits, and vitamins! It’s wonderful for your dogs GI Flora too!
What you will need PRIOR to your little one’s arrival home to you:
One Bag of TLC Whole Life Puppy Food
Life’s Abundance Large Breed Puppy Healthy Start (for Standard Size Puppies at Maturity) OR Life’s Abundance Small Medium Breed Puppy Healthy Start (for Mini-Medium Puppies at Maturity) *Recommended to purchase the Large Pack so you will have enough product for your initial go home period!
NuVet Plus K9 Immune System Builder (Powder or Wafers - I recommend the Powder for ease of administration while young as it can easily be mixed into their puppy food)
There are many different options available. This will come down to personal preference. I recommend the wire crate for a few reasons - folds flat for travel, divider panel available so your puppy can have one crate and grow into it. To create a denlike atmosphere you may desire to place a breathable sheet over the back of it or a crate cover. Just be sure you don’t put anything expensive in during the teething stages and be sure nothing can be harmful if swallowed, such as stuffing from toy or crate bed. Recommend the crate bed after teething and an old towel or incontinence pad while still teething.
We use and love Kuranda Dog Beds. They are orthopedic, so durable and really easy to clean. Our dogs all love them too!! Follow link to their website and a portion of each sale will go to support Warrior Canine Connection! Our dogs all use the 44x27 size, with the exception of our Great Pyrenees who use the largest size.
pawTreats® are delicious and nutritious treats your dogs and cats will crave, and you’ll feel good about feeding! Dogs and cats are natural hunters who thrive on a diet of primarily meat and some vegetables in order to thrive and live a healthy, vibrant life. Our freeze-dried varieties are grain-free, all-natural, healthy, real-food treats made with simple ingredients based on your pet’s optimal diet. They are a blend of high-quality meat, fruits and vegetables that dogs and cats crave.

We love the padded & also the reflective Blueberry Pet Collars & matching leashes! You will need a small collar & medium leash when your puppy arrives home to you!
Small Collars - You will need this size when your puppy first arrives, along with one of these coordinating leashes.
Leashes - The Length 5', Width 3/4", Size Medium leash works great as the initial leash size!
