10 Puppy Purchases Before Puppy Arrives

Updated: Jan 1, 2021

A new puppy is so exciting. If you prep before the puppy arrives, you will be ready and can spend time with the puppy and knowing you are ready. Here are some things to have on hand:

Food and Water Bowls

Stainless steel bowls are easy to clean and put in the dishwasher.

Dog Food

Lockewood Goldens will provide you with a small bag of puppy food to get you started.

We supplement with cooked, deboned and skinned chicken to give the puppy extra protein as it is growing.

Dog Crate and Dog Bed

A training crate gives the dog a “space of its own”. Many expert recommend that a puppy sleep in a crate their first night home. Put a dog bed or cushion in crate so it is comfy.

Collar, Leash and Harness for Walks

A harness tends to pull less on the dog when you take it for walks.

Dog Chew Toys

The toys provide mental and physical stimulation and activity for the puppy.

Training treats

Small treats help reward the puppy when you are training.

Poop bags

Start your habits out right. Pick up after your dog on walks and your neighbors will appreciate you.

Grooming brush and dog shampoo

Brush the puppy’s coat regularly and bath once or twice a month.

Dog toothbrush and tooth paste

Start out right with dental hygiene.

Stain and Odor Remover

There will be accidents in potty training. Have a stain and odor remover on hand.

Puppy Potty Place

Identify a place outdoors that the puppy can go to the bathroom. That will be your “go-to” place with training.

We're ready to go!

Puppy prep saves time. Then you can spend time with your puppy!
