Default Essential Puppy Things?

It's been so long since I've had a puppy I don't want to miss anything...so if you guys could help me out some that would be awesome

What are things you reccommend to have BEFORE a puppy comes home?

Anything from just personal stuff to nessesary.

TIA!

Before Dance came home a made sure she had a crate, some toys & bones, a leash & collar, and a food dish. Those are really the only things I found that I needed right away. Oh, and shampoo as they tend to get dirty really easily (well, Dance did anyway, lol).

The breeder should provide it , but if they don't something soft and fuzzy that has been rubbed on Mom and the other pups .

This is going to sound stupid, but when I brought Charlie home I realized that I had every single thing a puppy could possible need or want, EXCEPT for puppy food!

Personally, McGee and I have really liked the Petstages Puppy Cuddle Pal. It has a little sack of buckwheat tucked into a velcro pouch. You can microwave the whole toy for 30-45 seconds and it stays warm for about 45-60 minutes. That's long enough to feel like a littermate while she falls asleep, and keeping the tiny girl from getting chilled in my drafty house. I found mine at Petsmart for about $8 or $9.

Other than that -- I second what has been said. Food and food dishes, collar and leash, crate, blankies, toys. Also, though, don't forget to think ahead about treats for potty training, which I had to cut up much tinier than I originally thought. Most recommend hot dogs, mozzarella cheese, etc.

Today I am going to buy a bell to hang next to the door to help us with potty training. That's the one thing I didn't get before she arrived that I wish I had.

^^ Exactly, I want to make sure everything is *perfect* for this puppy.

Hense when I started this thread.

I've already got a crate, so that's taken care of.
