    Default Supplies for your new puppy

    LeighAnn put together this helpful list:


    Walk into any pet supply stores and the choices are enormous. How do you know what you really need? The following are things cavalier owners have found necessary and useful.

    Crate
    Blanket, pillow or something soft for the bottom of the crate
    Food (best to stick with what the breeder feeds at first)
    Water, food bowls
    Variety of toys (your puppy will let you know what his favorites are)
    Leash
    Collar
    Brush
    Clippers for nails and/or trimming if you plan to do it yourself
    Shampoo
    Baby gates may be neccesary during the housebreaking stage
    Lots of film! Cavalier puppies are very photogenic!

    For a list items recommended for housebreaking, look in the topic about housebreaking a puppy.

    These items were suggested by a breeder for a first-aid kit. However, don't try to diagnose your dog yourself. If you hav an emergency, call your vet!
