What Will My Puppy Need?

Here are some essential items you will need to prepare for your new puppy!

A Crate

We recommend a wire crate with a divider so that the crate can be enlarged as your puppy grows. Sizes depends on puppy,  but you'll need either 30x21x24 or 36x24x27.

A Collar

Sizes varies depending on the brand of collar. The sizes are 6-10, 8-12, and 9-15. I do recommend a harness if you have small children.

Stain + Odor Remover

You'll need this to clean up any accidents that your puppy may have. We recommend something like Nature's Miracle.


Your puppy will need hard rubber toys (like Kongs and Nylabones) and some balls. We highly recommend the rubber Chuck It balls. Usually we do not recommend soft stuffed toys at this age as the puppies will be teething.


Really any brand of puppy tearless shampoo will work. We like Bio-Groom's fluffy puppy brand or Earthbath's Ultra mild puppy shampoo. DO NOT USE HUMAN SHAMPOO!

A Veterinarian

Your puppy will need a professional to give shots and medical attention. Shop around - not all vets are the same! Some vets will suggest stuff you don't really need! Ask lots of questions!


Slicker Brush and Metal Comb

Get a metal comb and a slicker brush!

A Leash

You'll need a 4 foot or 6 foot leash. I DO NOT recommend a retractable leash!


We recommend TLC treats. We also like Pet Botanics Training Rewards.

Supplements and Vitamins

Keeping Your Puppy Happy And Healthy

We recommend NuVet supplements for all our customers. These supplements are made from natural ingredients, specially formulated to deliver the best health benefits for your dog. 

Don't Forget the Trainer!

You'll need someone that can answer any of your questions. Training is very important! Puppies need to learn what is except able behavior and what is not. WE STRONGLY SUGGEST PUPPY CLASSES!
