    This would be greatly appreciated :)

    Collar, lead
    Bed or crate and lots of spare bedding
    Food and water bowls good quality food
    Kong
    Chew toys
    Biological cleaner you'll get accidents
    Clicker if you're using one and treats
    Brushes and any other grooming equipment you need

    Erm can't think of anything else at nearly 4am there's probably more

    - Food
    - bed
    - crate (vetbed is good to have in a crate)
    - toys
    - food bowl/water bowl, spare bowels, travel bowl
    - blankets/towels
    - lead/collar
    - kong/treats/toys
    - clicker if you plan to clicker train
    - disinfectant, bio washing powder, pet friendly air freshners (lol) etc
    - toothbrush and paste if you want to clean your dogs mouth manually (I rely on raw bones)
    - wormer/flea treatment/shampoo
    - grooming kit
    - the perfect puppy book by gwen bailey
    - stair gates if you want to stop him rom going in a certain room like the kitchen but you still want to see him
    - puppy pen if you plan to use it
    - long line to train recall (optional)
    - outdoor kennel (if needed)
    - harness if you're going to use one
    - if you have a car a travelling crate or a seat belt that will clip onto your dogs harness
    - ID tags
    - poop bags

    Okay I'm done thinking for now.

    A tip rather than a list of things:

    I have a solution of bio washing powder already made up in an empty 500mls water bottle so any accidents I can soak up the wee and then squirt the bio solution on it straight away. I mix mine with boiling water, then let it cool and pour into the bottle. I have an old washing up sponge handy as well for scrubbing and working the bio solution into the wet patch. HTH:thumbup:

    But I use it on wooden and stone flooring x

    A good comfy pair of runners, a rain jacket and water proof trousers (for the middle of winter in the pouring rain :D) for when the walking starts! I think everyone else mentioned everything except plenty of patience! :D
