Essential list before you bring your puppy home:
First few weeks are most important.
You becoming puppies new mum/dad or both, you creating a bond between you and your pup, also you must do a lot of training.
COLLAR AND LEASH
You will need these after the second Lepto2 (please make sure it is not Lepto4) vaccination then your puppy will be allowed to go outside.
It is very important to have harness for the journey home and for the future car rides (for your own and for your dogs safety)
WATER AND FOOD BOWLS
Variety of bowls are huge, so it is going to be easy to find the one you like. Make sure water bowl is always full.
It creates a cosy feeling for your puppy then he/she is wrapped in it.
Probably the most popular essential. It is so helpful then training. Also it is safe to leave your puppy in a crate (without collar!) while you have to rush somewhere.
Then your dog will get used to it, it will become hers/his safe place.
Decide what are you going to feed your puppy and make sure you have some for the beginning. Puppies are eating different then grown up dogs!
BRUSHES, COMBS AND DOGS SHAMPO
Doodles love water and mud so shampoo and conditioner are important in the list. Also two type of brushes (slicker and combs) which must be used daily to prevent knots.
