Before you bring your puppy home, have the supplies and equipment you’ll need.
Here are some suggestions:
A dog crate
Easily washable bedding
Food and water dishes—heavy enough they won’t tip easily
Good quality dry puppy food we recommend IAMS. Don’t skimp on your puppy’s nutrition.
A collar and leash
An ID tag with your phone number
Safe chew toys
Grooming supplies: brush, gentle shampoo, doggy toothbrush, nail clippers, etc.
Supplies to clean up puppy “accidents” and eliminate odor. (Never use ammonia. Dog urine has ammonia in it, and puppy will think this is his “spot.” Good
commercial products are available.)
