  2. Two metal bowls.
  3. These are better than glass because they do not chip and stay cleaner. One for food and one for water.A puppy bed. Some options are: crate with a crate pillow, a snuggle nest, or a wicker basket with a lot of towels. Whatever you choose, make sure it is always soft, comfy, and dry.

  5. Also remember that you should not give rawhide to pups as a toy. It's only for treats.Puppy treats. Make sure you get a variety: Crunchy and soft. The soft will be good for training, and the crunchy will help clean teeth.Puppy food: Do some research on dog food. Kibble, canned, home cooked, and feeding a raw diet are all options for a puppy.Basic grooming tools. Get a bristle brush, comb, rubber gloves, nail clippers, dog shampoo, dog conditioner, dog toothpaste, toothbrush, and towels.A harness and tag. Get a nylon harness, and metal tag. Do not use a collar while walking puppies. It hurts their neck. Start using a collar at 6 months of age at the least. Remember when sizing the harness that puppies will grow.2Make sure that the puppy you are getting is right for you. Does its coat suit your climate? Is it small enough to live in your apartment?
  6. Do you have the time to walk this large breed every day?3Show your puppy around the house as soon as you bring him home. Let him walk in all the rooms and backyard. This will make him more comfortable.4Leave a radio on for your puppy when not at home. This will make him feel safer.5Come home frequently to check on your puppy.

Exercise him with playing fetch every day also.9Train your puppy basic obedience commands, and start potty training him the day you get him. This will make him more enjoyable to be around.10Take your puppy on regular car rides to get him used to traveling with you. Otherwise, every time you get in the car he will think "WE ARE GOING TO THE VET!!! NOOOOO!!!". Then, he will start whining, and it will just get you frustrated.
  9. Socialize him by bringing him to a puppy obedience class once a week. This will help him learn how to act around unfamiliar dogs and people.
  10. Schedule a vet check-up for your puppy at least every six months. Also, schedule vet appointments for the proper vaccinations. Teach your puppy that going to the vet is an enjoyable (or at least tolerable) experience by bringing treats with you while you are there.
  11. Bathe your puppy at least once a week.14Make sure you train your puppy on where the potty is (usually on newspaper), you don't want the puppy pooping everywhere.15Spend all the time you have with your puppy. He won't be little for long
