    I've been stocking up on everything I'll need for my new pup and was just wondering what the one dog/puppy product you and your dog could not live without would be.

    My family had two rescue dogs for 10 and 11 years respectively. For Rocky (Staff/lab) it would have to be his cuddly chimp that he carried everywhere and for Angel (collie cross everything!) it would be a ball on a rope because she was fetch mad!

    Daisy has her blankie - it is absolutely disgusting because she sucks it when she's tired, and plays with it when she's not, but she won't settle and spends ages looking for it if it is in the wash or worse when we accidentally left it at my mums house :eek:
    Also poo bags...

    yes same beside poo bags and food, it would have to be the dry shampoo and wipes, especially for when he goes into the dirty brook water, and i havent got chance to bath him before i go out!!

    I would have to go with the crate as without that i would not be able to leave the pup at all as we are all open plan and i would be worried he would not be safe not being in one!!

    Their Crates! I dread to think what kind of state the carpet would be in by now if Dave wasn't safely settled in his crate, Dixie too.. She will not settle unles she is in her crate.

    Dave hasn't been much of a chewer but I guess that is because I never leave him unnatended where he might chew.. Him and his siblings ate a bit of skirting when they were tiny and he got a taste for wood!

    hmm, the ball throwing stick (cant think of a better way to put it!)
    All the balls we have left are proper tennis balls so have that furry stuff on them, my dog dribbles so much when shes playing that touching it is nasty lol

    Did you know, the medium sized solid rubber balls fit into the tennis ball thrower too? They go quite far! :D

    Crates are great for pups, You can never have to many toys, but the most useful for a few mins peace and quiet are a treat ball and a kong. I put hard treats in the balll and soft stuff like peanut butter and marmite or those cheap sandwich spreads in the kong. This keeps them entertained for a couple of minutes. Dont forget if they are chewing a toy they are not chewing your stuff lol:eek:
