New Puppy Checklist: Everything You Need

Congratulations on your new puppy! Getting a new puppy or dog is so exciting. So is going shopping and getting everything they need. This new puppy checklist will help you get everything you’ll need or want to do for that little bundle of fur.

I remember when I brought home my first puppy and I think I made 4 trips to the store because I was so excited to get home and play with him that I would forget something.

I’ve created a New Puppy Checklist so that doesn’t happen to you. Make one trip to get everything set up for your new family friend so you have more time to play!

If puppy gets lost, make sure he makes his way back to you. Any humane society or Vet’s office should have a universal microchip reader. They’ll be able to link that microchip number to you and get puppy how safely

ID tag

For others who can’t get to a microchip reader. This will let them know a phone number to contact to get puppy back to you.
