  • Baby gates (for keeping puppy inbounds)

  • Brush and comb

  • Chew toys

  • Dishwasher-safe, nonchewable bowls (one for water, one for food)

  • Enzyme cleaner for pet stains

  • Flat or rolled collar, buckle or snap-together with an ID tag — not a slip collar

  • Lightweight leash, six feet long

  • Nail trimmer and Kwik Stop powder

  • Pooper scooper

  • Properly sized shipping crate (for housetraining)
