Top 10 Puppy Essentials – What To Buy Before He Comes Home:
1) A good veterinarian.

You want to make sure that all vaccinations are up to date. If you don’t have them, it could cause problems later on in life. Your veterinarian may recommend some additional ones, but always get the full list from the American Kennel Club (AKC).
3) Grooming products.
You want to ensure that your pup doesn’t suffer any skin diseases or other common ailments caused by bad grooming habits. Make sure to brush their teeth twice daily and keep them away from dirt, dust, and lint.
You want to make sure that your pup gets enough food every day so that they don’t become overweight. Feeding puppies too much at one time can lead to obesity.
You want toys for your pups that are safe for them to play with without getting hurt themselves or others around them. you want to make sure that the toys you have for them are safe and free of any small parts they can easily swallow.
6) A car harness.
You want to make sure that your dog does not distract you from driving on long trips, but also don’t want them to be a hazard in case of an accident.
7) A bed.
You want to make sure that your dog has a place where they can rest. If they’re going to be sleeping in your room, you’ll need to make sure the bed is big enough for both of you.
8) A collar and leash.
To take your dog places, you are going to need a collar and leash for them to walk around the block or go on a long hike.
9) Dog tags.
In case your dog gets lost, it’s a good idea to have tags with your contact information.
10) Grooming tools. Make sure you get a brush or comb to keep their fur clean and free of knots. You should also have a nail clipper to keep their nails from growing too long. If they grow too long, it could cause them pain and prevent them from walking or running normally.
