so i know that this may be early and maybe to soon, but im anxious and cant wait.
so what do i need to get before my future puppy comes home?
i need help making a list of things and maybe some things you guys may recommend i need.
this is the list i got so far. would be nice to more detail my list with recommended brands or specifics of the item.
(would be used for only when im gone at work for 8 hour day.)
-what is a good size?
-im thinking one of the bigger ones he/she can grow in to
-im thinking i like the ones that are black and fence like.
-or would a plastic travel kennel would be a better idea?
-should i get a small dog bed for now and a bigger one later?
-or just get a big one and have my companion grow in to it
-any one you find better then the other? matt over bed maybe?
Food & treats
-i was going to wait and see what my breeder would recommend to start with. and maybe experiment on my own with my companion in the future.
i want good healthy stuff. and thinking of doing mostly raw with a mix of some dog food to make a hybrid type food.
- your suggestions?
-treats for puppies? what is a good one to help train them?
-how many should i get?
-what should i get? (tug, chew, ball, other??)
-should i wait to go shopping for toys with my pup or get a few to start with first?
-home made toys ideas/suggestions maybe?
Bath & Meds
-what is a good shampoo for bath?
-what basic meds do i need to have on hand?
-flea tick treatments? do i need them or not tell i notice the need for it?
-what would i need to have for training? potty, house, crate, tricks, etc..
-feel free to add more
im just super excited and cant wait. so i wouldn't mind setting stuff up now and wait for the pup to come. maybe bargain shop early. let me know your thoughts, what i need, what you recommend, what i need to wait on to get later etc...
