I was planning to get a yellow labrador puppy this spring, but an oppertunity has arose. A breeder in Wisconsin gave up 49 dogs ranging from 8 weeks to 2 years old to the Animal Humane Society because they are getting out of the business.
I could adopt a dog as soon as Sunday. But I need supplies. I'm gonna run over to Petco tomorrow. I need advice on my shopping list. Thanks
- collar and leash
- nature's miracle (or some other enzyme cleaner)
That's a good start. If you look through this section of the forum, there are lots of other shopping lists I think. I just posted the very basic essentials.
Baloo - 5 year old black lab
Peanut - 7 year old minpin
Monster - 3-ish year old frenchie/jack, rescue
She hit the nail on the head, you can pick up everything else later if need be.Originally Posted by Baloo317
If you cannot find Nature's Miracle, get a bottle of Hydrogen Peroxide at a drug store or the pharmacy section of a supermarket.
You use this to kill any residual scent of pee after cleaning up the Ooops! spot normally. The scent of a pee spot (which dogs smell but we don't) entices them to "pee here! pee here!"
