Purina Pro Plan Puppy Sensitive Skin & Stomach Salmon & Rice Dry Puppy Food — You can purchase this dog food online at Chewy.com.
Treats — small soft ones work well. For an extra special treat, use cheese or small pieces of cooked ground beef or chicken.
A copy of Jan Fennel’s book or DVD of “The Dog Listener”. This book is a must read/watch for any dog owner who wants willing cooperation from their pet. If you only read one thing-be sure this is it. Here is a link to Jan’s site where you can learn about her methods. Buy her book on Amazon.
Stainless-steel non-tipping food and water bowls
I.D. Tags with the contact information for yourself and your veterinarian
A collar (8 to 12 inch size) and a 6-foot leather or nylon leash
A 37- 42 inch wire crate with an adjustable divider in the center so you can grow the crate with your puppy.
Dog shampoo (preferably the hypoallergenic kind)
Brush and comb, – A pin brush goes over the top of the coat to make it look smooth, and a steel toothed comb works great for going deep into the coat.
Cleanup supplies such as a stain remover, paper towels, deodorizing and odor neutralizing spray (like Natures Miracle)
Chew Toys (Kong is one of my favorite brands.) Do not get any rawhide chews.
This is a list of the basic necessities. Your trainer may have additional items. There are many other helpful and fun products available at pet supply stores.
