Bet your excited! Ours is coming home in 6 weeks. I could burst. My kids keep asking 'Can we get our puppy today?' and my 6 y/o female GSD keeps looking at me like 'You've been saying puppy forever. Believe it when I see it.'

The only thing I'd add to your list is RAGS. Lots of rags. I'm potty training my skintwins right now. We need more rags.

I don't see your other thread so I'll post to this one:

teething toys (like Nylabone keyring - both my GSD and my mom's tiny little Havanese pup chewed more on these than anything else while teething - they come in different sizes)

poo bags for walks

some type of dry treats - small - that you can keep in your pocket on walks for training (hotdogs aren't great in pockets


nail clippers

Too bad you're not very excited about getting your new puppy!!!LOL!

This is such an exciting time - you're gonna love it!

I think you are pretty much on top of things. You didn't tell us where you were getting your new addition. Make sure that you are well informed as to the status of shots, worming, microchipping, health exams etc. etc. Assuming the puppy is coming from a breeder you should be getting all of that.

Good luck and don't forget to send along some photos.

baby wipes! They work great for freshening up the pup, wiping and nose boogies, getting rocks and things between toes, the whole n9 yard. They like thier belly rubbed with them too.

I would make sure you have some of the food that the puppy has been eating at the breeders. (Unless it is already being fed raw.)

As someone else mentioned, small crunchy treats work good for carrying in your pocket.

My dogs and puppy like these (I get the small breed size since I have a 11 week old pup.). They are pretty small and easy to break so you van make them even smaller.

Natural Balance treats.

Besides the Turkey, Oatmeal, and Cranberry formula, they also have a Bison, Barley and Blueberry formula.

I also use cheese or cooked chicken for training treats. But again, not something you want to carry in a pocket.


I also got a small "sample" sized bag of Orijen puppy kibble. That too works good for carrying in your pocket for use as a treat.

baby wipes is a good one. Would giving him a bath when he gets home be ok as long as i use the puppy shampoo?
