Here are some of the essential items you’ll need to get before you bring home your new puppy:

  • Dog crate. When you first get your puppy, chances are, they’re not going to be housebroken. Crate training is a great way to not only help your dog learn house rules (and where and when to use the potty), but it can also be a great way to help them feel safe and comfortable in their new home. Just make sure to buy a crate that your puppy can grow into! 

  • Dog bed. You like a nice, comfortable bed to sleep in—and your new puppy deserves the same! Before you bring your new puppy home, make sure to invest in a dog bed. (If you’re going to crate train your dog, make sure to choose a bed that will fit comfortably inside the crate.)

  • Dog Bowls. Your puppy will need to eat and drink from day one—so make sure you have food bowls and water bowls on hand before you bring your new best friend home.

  • Dog collar, leash, poop bags, and a poop bag holder. Want to take your new puppy on a walk! You’ll need some supplies! An adjustable dog collar, sturdy leash, poop bags, and a poop bag holder are all must-haves before you head out on your first walk.  A harness is always best while taking a walk.
