    DefaultPuppy Supply Checklist

    Things are getting closer to getting my new pup, the delivery date is January 8. One of my board buddies here asked me if I have everything I need and I went straight into panic mode- I Don't Know, I thought!
    So I went back to do a mental check and then check the board for a puppy supply list and could only find a list that one of the members posted that her breeder provides.
    So I am posting that list here, and, if anyone has anything to add please post- 8 weeks seems like a long time- but it flies- I am getting oldddddd ;D

    Crate and pad
    Stainless steel bowls [b](Don't know if this is important- I have plastic ones and ceramic)[/b]
    Collar, leash, personalized tag
    1 mo. supply puppy food
    Toy bin with several chew toys and balls (Kong chew toys and stuffed squeaky toys)
    1 mo. flee/tick meds (will get when I visit my vet upon bringing her home)
    Nail trimmers
    Puppy shampoo
    Brush and toothbrush

    Lots of paper towels for little "oops". Also a bottle of bitter apple spray to deter chewing on stuff...this was a godsend for us, and saved our kitchen trim and chairs...and works on hands too!

    More experienced people here will be able to comment but I don't think you want to put flea/tick meds on such a young puppy.

    NATURE's MIRACLE is a must. You put it on the accidents and clean - it neutralizes the odor.
    chewies to help with teething - I bought cow ears ( less fat)

    lots of paper towels (to clean up any accidents)
    Nature's Miracle (for the same reason)
    Nylabones
    Training treats (small pieces) to reward "potty" outside ..... I kept treats in all my coat pockets for that!! ;D and to reward "come" every time!

    I vote for Stainless steel bowls ~ not plastic ~ as it keeps puppies from getting those little pimple like things on their snouts (okay, somebody help me out here and say what I'm trying to say in a better way).

    Also I'd get several Nylabones. She's gonna need lots of chew toys!

    Someone asked this in the puppy section a week or two ago. Here is what I wrote:

    Food and water bowl (ceramic or stainless steel)
    Crate
    Separate dog bed
    Brush/comb
    Cheap collar and leash (pup will outgrow/ruin them quickly!)
    Appropriate chew toys
    Nametag for collar
    Poop bags
    Old towels for paw cleaning
    Puppy safe treats stored in a puppy proof container
    Container for food storage
    Confinement for car travel (another crate ideally)
    Good antibacterial cleaner for accidents
    Books on puppy rearing/training/behavior

    Yes, I went with stainless steel bowls with rubber lips on the bottom for both of mine.

    I have Rowan's in between the fridge and wall against the cupboard on a plastic placemat. It stays put1

    My vote would also be to ditch the plastic bowls. Ceramic is good. We have always used ceramic and the bowls last YEARS. Unless you drop and smash one, you can't beat them for value for money. They are easy to keep clean and last longer in terms of quality than the stainless ones.

    Food/Water bowls:

    We had Stainless, Plastic, and Ceramic.

    Stainless: NOISEY, to easy to push around
    Plastic: DESTRUCTION, good to eat when food is gone
    Ceramic: Our choice, stays put, doesn't eat it.
