  • Crate: A crate allows your puppy to have a space of their own where they feel sale. Crate training is also incredibly useful when house training. For an adult size crate, we use crates from 26-32 inches high. 

  • Toys: Puppies need toys to engage and build relationships. De-stuffed toys are recommended. You can also use squeaker toys under supervision. 

  • Bowls for food and water: You will need bowls for them to eat and drink. We suggest not using raised food dishes. They should eat lower, as they would in nature. 

  • Pillows and blankets: Blankets and pillows can offer comfort and make it easier for them to adjust to their new home.
