We have done pretty well with our supply list. We will only have to buy a few more items. The first one will be collar and leash.
Collars and Leashes
Gordon Wear Not Just Another Dog Leash – Padded Comfort Handle + Matching Collar
Made from soft, high-density nylon with double-stitched seams and a secure dog leash clip that stays closed-it’s quality you can feel (our dog too)
Comfortable: The collar is fully adjustable and comfortable for your dog or puppy
Safe: Padded leash handle made from non-toxic polypropylene offers extra comfort on hands and a better grip for pullers
Metal o-ring on the leash handle for holding accessories such as keys, a small light or dogie bags
Small: Leash is 5/8 inch wide for small dogs and 6 feet long for hiking or running, collar fits 10-14″, 1/2″ wide leash: 6 feet, 5/8″ wide
This dog collar leash combination would be great for a puppy. The price is right too. Depending on your type of puppy if he’s pretty big, you can find similar collars for your puppy. The sky is the limit on collars and leashes. These have both things that you’ll need and it is reasonably priced. As they grow you will probably get one more sturdy if you have a big dog.
You might also want to get a harness type so your not always pulling on his neck. Something similar to this one.
Another thing to think about is a training collar. They are to large for puppies. These are some things that can wait til later.
Toys and Teething Toys
Okay how about some toys to chew on instead of your favorite chair or maybe your table leg. This is a Nylabone. Great for puppies to chew on while they’re cutting teeth. It’s bacon flavor, who wouldn’t love it.
Nylabone Puppy Chew toys encourage nondestructive chewing habits while satisfying the natural urge to chew.
Chewing habits while satisfying the natural urge to chew.
Designed for teething and actively chewing puppies.
Raised ridges and nubs help clean teeth and control plaque and tartar.
Bacon flavor puppies love.
Comes in 2 sizes: petite and medium.
We have to look at a few toys. When puppies get bored, they chew. They also like squeaky toys. They drive me crazy but it’s better than the furniture.
AMZpets 10 Most Popular Dog Toys Small Dogs & Puppies. Squeaky Toys | Rope Toys | Plush Games | Chewing Ropes | Balls | Rubber Bone | Carry Bag. Variety Playing Set Toss & Tug Play. This package will be great for your puppy. Plenty of things to play with and chew on.
You will also want a tag to go on the collar. This needs to have your puppies name and address. They can slip out through the tiniest opening. They try until they find a place. When you get the rabies shot you can put the tag on his collar as well.
We need to find some puppy treats. These will be used to train your puppy to potty outside and other things you might train him to do. These are top rated puppy treats.

Frontline has been voted the best flea and tick control for 2018. The only thing about Frontline and a lot of other flea and tick medicines, they don’t protect against heart worms. You can buy heart worm medicine to give when you use the monthly flea and tick medicine. You can also buy one called Trifexis. It is flea and tick medication and heart worm. It’s a little pricey. I use Advantage Plus and I have no complaints. Cheyenne is a little quiet for a day, but then she’s fine. It doesn’t matter which kind you decide on just make sure you put it on monthly.
Before you use and heart worm prevention make sure your puppy has been dewormed. This is very important. All these medications have to have a prescription from your vet.
Well I think we have spent enough money for your first shopping trip. There will be other things you will need but not today. Don’t forget to come back and visit me and Cheyenne. I think my next post will be potty training. Now that you have everything you need for now, just enjoy your little four-legged fur ball.
