Water bowl

Food bowl

leash

5 toys

1 blanket

poopy pick up & poopy bags

    Definately a crate for helping with toilet training,

    Definately book in for puppy socialisation classes followed by basic obedience classes.

    Get the puppy registered with a vet straight away and microchip her.

    Also need an I.D. tag done straight away.

    If you have a car, you need some way for the dog to travel safely - dog guard or crate or harness that clips to the seatbelt or similar.

    Toothbrush - if you plan on cleaning her teeth start straight away so it is never a problem.

    Find out when the pup needs worming next, and what type was last used - your vet will advise you too.

    Take lots of photos - not puppys for long so make the most of it!

    Books to give you ideas for solving common puppy problems!

    Hi I have just got a puppy about 3 weeks ago, and my advice is, get a small thin bone he can chew, because he will chew your sofa otherwise, its better for there teeth than a chew toy, especilly as he should be teething right now, also get a tray and news paper, otherwise he will pee and poo on the floor, and I'd get him a harnes, don't just put the lead on his collar, as puppys are stubourn at walking on a lead, and after a while it could really damage his neck, pulling him aroun, hope that helped.

    You will also need a dog crate to use when you are house breaking her or training her :) And also nail clippers for her. More than likely flea medication. Make sure all her shots and vaccinations are up to date. I think that's it but if I think of anything else I will be sure to inform you! Congratulations on your new puppy! I hope all goes well!

    Learning how to train your dog will improve your life and hers, enhance the bond between you, and ensure her safety and it can be a lot of fun. Dogs are usually eager to learn, and the key to success is good communication. Your dog needs to understand how you’d like her to behave and why it’s in her best interest to comply with your wishes.

    you're lucky, i don't get a pet if any kind except for a fish for at least 7 years.

    If she isn't house-trained, you might want to get a crate - they help a lot with house training.

    Other than that, you sound prepared!

    Good luck with your puppy! (:

    I would look into doggy training classes.

    (Not petsmart!) look up local dog training classes in your area

    Also avoid at all costs puppy pee pads!! By the time they learn to piss in the house, they could've been house broken
