Adopting a new dog is one of the most excited and rewarding things you can do, but it can also cause stress if you don't know how to prepare. Here is a list of items you should make sure you can provide before bringing your new pup to their forever home: 

  • A dog crate
  • Hard bones
  • A variety of dog toys
  • A dog bed (outside of the crate)
  • A leash, collar, and harness
  • Dog tags
  • Food and water bowls
  • Some food your dog is already eating
  • A toothbrush, dog toothpaste, and dental chews
  • A list of dangerous food for dogs
  • Any supplements your dog may need
  • Depending on the dog: pee pads, a baby gate, or a mobility ramp
