When you take your new puppy home, you will need the following supplies:
1. Food and water bowls: Puppies need appropriately sized bowls. Ceramic is easy to clean and hard for a rambunctious puppy to tip over and spill. 2. Food: Ask what food the puppy has been eating so you can continue with the same diet. Changing the diet too quickly can cause diarrhea and upset tummy. 3. Leash, harness, and collar: A sturdy harness and leash are essential for walks and training. Your microchip or other identification tags will attach to your collar, so your puppy gets home safely. 4. Crate: A crate can be used for potty training, as well as providing a safe place for your puppy when you are not able to supervise them. 5. Potty training pads or newspaper: Puppies need to be potty trained and these materials can help with that process. 6. Toys: Puppies need to chew and play, so provide them with a variety of toys to satisfy their needs. We use cheeky chips. 7. Grooming supplies: Depending on the breed, you may need a brush, comb, nail clippers, and shampoo. 8. Bedding: A comfortable bed or crate pad for your puppy to sleep on. 9. Identification: A microchip or ID tag will ensure your puppy can be returned to you if they get lost. 10. Training Tools: Treats, clicker, or a whistle will be useful to train your puppy.
Also, it's important to have a vet check-up schedule for the puppy, take them to the vet as soon as possible to ensure they are healthy and keep them up-to-date on vaccinations.
