Essential equipment for new pup
A safe, warm, bed a crate/cage is ideal.
A crate should be big enough for the pup to stand and sit and lie down but not big enough for him to wander round. It should have a solid bases and safe door which can be shut.
Best bedding is Vet-bed not cheaper substitutes real vet bed will last for years and years looks like sheepskin and acts like one-way nappies keeping pup warm and dry.
The crate is for times when pup needs to be left or be kept safe and so he can do no damage to himself or the home. It acts as a den to small pups and usually they love it.
An ordinary plastic type bed can be used at other times when the owners are at home.
Bedding as mentioned above vet-bed is the best.
Dish one for food and one for water - easily cleaned.
Puppy collar and lead practice only of course at first. Nametag with your name and address and phone number NOT the pups name.
Toys just a few very safe type toys, that a pups teeth cant destroy or tear apart. No chews unless under supervision.
Diet sheet from breeder so that NO sudden changes are made.
Note of dates of worming from breeder so date when next wormer is due, is known.
