Puppy Training Book – Choose one for your pup’s breed, family dog training or one for the kids and begin the training techniques immediately. The more you are consistent, layout the parameters and set the pace, the quicker your pup will acclimate to their new surroundings.
Puppy Food& Treats – It is a great idea to find out the pet food your puppy has been eating and start there to reduce tummy troubles. You can then transition them to another puppy food or wait and transition to dog food when the time is right. Choose a few pup treats and snacks to find out which ones are most liked. Add a bag of tiny pup treats to your list which are very helpful during the training process.
Food and Water Bowls – Eating time will be your pup’s most important time(s) of the day. Choose the right size food and water bowls for your puppy and be ready to transition them into larger and elevated bowls if required.
Collar and ID – Choose an adjustable collar that will grow with your puppy. You don’t want to go too big or it may slip off too easily. Attach your contact information, your pup’s name and ID to ensure you can be found.
Leash – If leash training is something you have in mind, you want to start immediately with the right training leash and have additional options on hand. You will get to know your pup’s walking habits quickly and you can determine if you can do the training or if you need professional help.
Potty Supplies – We are all about pet potty parity and you will want to pick up plenty of poo bags, training pads, a poo bag carrying case that hooks to the leash and you may want a poo pick up gadget too.
Dog Crate – You may simply pick up your pup and transport them in their crate or you may choose to crate train. Be prepared with a portable option or put their permanent crate in your vehicle.
Puppy Blanket – Many pups love their blankets, so you might want to pick one up too. This is a great way to welcome pups that will sleep on the bed to find their place on “their” blanket.
Puppy Bedding – Choose where you pup will nap and sleep before choosing the perfect beds. You want to have your beds in place before your pup arrives allowing you show your pup the best places to take a rest. Don’t choose pup beds that are too small, choose a size that they can grow into.
PuppyToys – Pups love to explore, learn new things and play, play, play. Choose toys that allow them to chew, expend their energy and train them too.
Puppy Accessories – Have a little fun with a graphic tee, adorable hat or calming shirt. All are great for photos and will help your pup adjust to new things from the start.
Puppy Journal – Start a journal the day you decide to adopt your new pup. Capture great memories, milestones and keep track of shots, medicines and upcoming events.
