Puppy Supplies/Toys

What supplies do you recommend getting in preparation of training a puppy in Schutzhund? What toys do you recommend for playing with the puppy and building drive/starting the foundation for bitework? Recommendations for puppy supplies in general are appreciated as well .

My list so far is in the pics attached. The crate size I have listed is for a small 8 wk old puppy btw.

Skip Leesburg. Over priced. And no need to buy that stuff right now anyways.

Lots of food for training. Buy a cheap collar that they just outgrow. Soft toys to chomp on. Don't spend a lot on those either. They just destroy them. Get a clicker. Get a bowl to teach them perchwork for rear end awareness.

Chews to keep them busy. Antlers. Bully sticks. Raw meaty bones.

Either find a cheap used varikennel that's a smaller size or buy the right size for an adult if you buy new.

Don't spend money right now on things they don't use until they are adults.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Any recommendations on a bowl for perch work? I can never find a good one. Would love a good link to one! And I was planning on looking for a used crate . I've already got a million clickers haha

I'll send you a list this weekend. Have your vet put the microchip in. It does not cost less. And make sure it can be read by any scanner. I have home again chips.

I would go with the regular Fromm LBP Gold rather than the grain-free. It's cheaper, comes in a bigger size bag and actually has a better ingredient makeup compared to the Heartland Gold grain-free. Unless there is a reason to feed grain-free, i.e. allergy/sensitivity to grain, there is no reason to feed a grain-free food.

Our shelter also uses Home Again chips. Just out of curiosity, why specifically do you recommend having the vet do it? And thank you!

I've done the research and I will still always feed grain-free. That's just my personal choice.

Because you have to register the chip anyways so it doesn't cost any less for the vet to do it.

Tractor Supplies or any store that sells things for livestock will have black rubber bowls of various sizes. They are sturdy and will last forever.

Stuffable toys like Kongs, Toppl, ect.. Good for stuffing with wet food then you can freeze and it will keep a pup busy. I tend to use food for training, but when I can't the pup still has to work for it.
