The first one is collar and leash. One good thing with collar is that it will help in holding the license and the identification tag of your puppy which will contain your name and your phone number. Another thing is that you should want either a decorative or plain collar which will be attached to the leash used in walking the puppy. Besides, you should make sure that you choose adjustable necklace which is made of nylon with a two-piece buckle. Another thing that you should ensure is that the collar provides suitably on the neck, but it should not be too tight to injure the puppy. Apart from that, you should also make sure that the strap is secure so that it does not break when you are walking your puppy.
Besides, you should arrange for containers and containment. You should know that crates are essential in keeping the dog in an enclosed area where you will have easy time monitoring them. You should also know that crates are made from different materials with merits and demerits, and you should choose the right. For instance, we have stainless stain crates which are sturdy and will last for an extended period and in turn saves you a lot of money. Besides, we have plastic and fiberglass crates which are essential in ensuring the safety and security of your dog and it is also lightweight to make it easy when you are traveling or flying. Apart from that, they are always warm and comfortable. But it is essential that you choose a crate that your dog can stand in, lie down, turn around and stretch in.
Also, you should purchase a mattress. Before you could bring your dog home, you should arrange for a bed where the dog will sleep. When making the selection, you should choose a small and bumper bed that is covered with fleece and sheepskin to give your dog the necessary comfort. It will be better if you use some materials that your dog will not be able to eat. You can as well include the couch with a sheet or blanket to avoid then the dog that is still in its chewing stage from eating the contents.
You should also buy food and water bowls. You can choose from ceramic, plastic, glass to stainless steel bowls. One thing with plastic bottles is that they are cheap, easy to clean but they can contain bacteria and residues when broken. While ceramic bowls are fragile, expensive, cumbersome and include dangerous lead ions. The best choice is stainless steel since they are strong, durable, easy to clean and sanitize and they cannot be carried by the puppy.
