Prepare your Pug’s homecoming by having the right supplies on hand. Your new pet’s transition to your family and your household will be happier and healthier if you’ve stocked up on these items:

  • A wire pet carrier for your Pug to ride safely in the car or to sleep inside the house.

  • Bedding for the carrier to make it comfy. A clean old blanket will do just fine.

  • Exercise pen or baby gates to keep your Pug puppy from getting into trouble.

  • Collar and leashes to take your Pug on outings. Your dog should be on a leash every time you take him away from home.

  • Identification to make sure that your Pug is returned to you if he ever gets separated from you.

  • Two stainless steel bowls — one for food and one for water.

  • Nail clippers for dogs or a cordless hobby grinder to keep your Pug’s feet in good condition.

  • Brush and comb to keep your Pug’s coat looking healthy.

  • Toothbrush and toothpaste to maintain good Pug dental health.

  • Shampoo and conditioner to keep your Pug clean and smelling fresh.

  • Premium food recommended by your breeder, veterinarian, or folks at a shelter or breed rescue group.

  • Toys, toys, and more toys to keep your Pug happy and having fun.

  • Clean-up scooper to pick up your yard.

  • Pet odor remover or carpet cleaner to deal with those housetraining accidents.
