Long Paws Comfort Harness, Reflective, Padded Dog Harness 5 colours to choose from.

This is a great practical harness, it will get you safely home with your new puppy, and will last you a few months.

It can continue to be used as a car harness, also used to walk puppy until he has learnt not to pull and you can then use a collar and lead.

For large miniature puppy buy an extra small, for medium puppy buy a small.

  • Lifetime guarantee - buy with the comfort of knowing that the harness is guaranteed for life against any material or construction defects. 

  • Fully Adjustable Step-in harness for dogs 

  • Soft neoprene lining for added comfort and skin protection. 

  • Strong buckles and double D rings for added safety. 

  • Reflective harness for low light visibility.

Eyein Dog Seat Belt, 2 in 1 Attachment Dog Car Harnesses Belt, Hook Latch Bar & Seatbelt Buckle with Anti Shock Elastic Nylon Bungee Buffer, Adjustable Reflective Duty Pet Safety Belts for Vehicle.

4 colours to choose from.

This is a good strong seat belt attachment, it can be attached to the seatbelt or clipped onto something, which can be really useful if you don't have a spare seatbelt or you need to attach puppy somewhere other than in the car.

HAPPY HACHI Training Lead for Dogs & Puppy 10m Long Line Leash for Pet Training Recall Obedience and Tracking.

Always useful to have for training recall, and those first few times you let puppy off the lead while on a walk.

Dog Puppy Cage Folding 2 Door Crate with Plastic Tray Medium 30-inch Black. 

I recommend crate training puppy.  I also suggest using vet-bed in the crate, as it is washable.

Large miniature puppy small 24"

Small medium puppy Med 30"

Large medium puppy 36"

Vet Fleece Bedding | Vet Bed Original Non-Slip | for Puppys and Dogs | Manufactured in our British Mill.Quick Drying | Washable | Dog Bed

Different sizes to fit your crate, and lots of colours available.

Lasts forever! Buy a couple, so you can always have a clean one in case of accidents.

Veehoo Chew Proof Elevated Dog Bed  Cooling Raised Pet Cot - Rustless Aluminum Frame and Durable Textilene Mesh Fabric, Unique Designed No-Slip Feet.

I highly recommend a raised dog bed. Dogs and puppies love them. Easier for you to clean around and under. j

Just wipe clean or hose down. Vet bed can be used on top or/and a snuggly fleece in winter. 

Its worth paying a bit more and having a chew proof durable one. It will last years.

For large miniature and small medium dogs you'll need a medium, for large medium get a large.

SmartPetLove Snuggle Puppy Heartbeat Stuffed Toy for Dogs - Pet Anxiety Relief and Calming Aid

I haven't tried the cheaper models, but this one is brilliant and puppies love it. They snuggle up and feel secure and cosy next to the snuggle puppy.

Rolled Leather Dog Collar 

Less matting with a rolled leather collar, these are strong there are seven colours available. I like these very much.

25 - 33cm will fit puppy

33 - 41cm neck will fit most large mini and small medium dogs.

39 - 47cm for large medium

  • DURABLE -made of high quality wear-resistant leather. With a sturdy metal buckle, your dog will be ready for whatever the day brings.

MKEK 5ft Dog Lead with Comfortable Padded Handle

Leather leads are probably the nicest (until they get chewed! so hang on until puppy is out of that stage).

Rope leads are good, but of course it really doesn't matter, just a personal preference. Its good to have a couple of leads.

Easy Peasy Puppy Squeezy

Really good book, for first time dog owners or those that want a refresher and to see modern methods and how things have changed over the years.

Lots of great ideas.

I highly recommend.

Dog Shampoo & Conditioner 1L | Anti-Bacterial Anti-Fungal | Calms & Soothes Itchy Dog Skin | Restores Hairs | Remove Bad Odour

Why wait and see if your dog reacts to harsh chemicals. Start by using a gentle natural soothing shampoo and conditioner.

This is a good one.
