Default First time chi owner, supplies list

I thought it would be a nice idea to compare our ideas of what chi supplies we should have for our pups. There could be things that spark an idea for someone else as something they should also have for their chi and it would be especially useful for first time dog/chi owners to have a basic idea of the supplies that are good to have on hand. I'm going to keep up with others ideas in this post as they are posted.

Bed/Blanket/Heat Pad
Food/Food & Water Bowls/Food Container/Food Measuring Scoop/Food Place Mat/Feeders/Bowls
Treats/Training Treats
Winter Coat or Sweater
Collar/ID Tag/Harness/Lead
Crate/Carrier/Baby Gates/Iris Pen
Brush/Deodorizing Spray/Shampoo/Conditioner/Nail Clippers
Puppy Pads/Nature's Miracle Carpet Stain Remover/Poop Bags
Toys
Car Seat
Vitamins/Supplements/Musher's Paw Creme or Coconut Oil/First Aid Kit (see Chi's Medical Supply Kit by * Bailey & Kahlua's Mom * sticky above)/List or Book of Poisonous Plants & Foods (see Updated! Dangerous people food! Dangerous plants! Dangers in yard/home! by Kari sticky above)/Phone Number of nearest ER for animals
Flea/Tick Treatment or Preventive (Age appropriate, if needed)
Toothbrush/Toothpaste/Dentasticks
Training Books/Breed Books

Edited to add, I see Hydrogen Peroxide, Blood Stop Powder (Styptic Powder), and Nutri Cal listed in the Chi's Medical Supply Kit thread which I referenced above so I took these 3 things off the liFood/Food & Water Bowls/Food Measuring Scoop/Food Container/Food Place Mat/Feeders/Bowls
Collar/ID Tag/Lead/Harness
Heat Pad/Blanket/Bed
Treats/Training Treats
Toys/Toy Box
Vitamins/Supplements/Toothbrush/Toothpaste/Dentasticks/Age Appropriate Flea/Tick Treatment or Preventive (if needed)
Brush/Shampoo/Conditioner/Deodorizing Spray/Nail Clippers
Puppy Pads/Nature's Miracle Carpet Stain Remover/Poop Bags/Poop Bags Dispenser
Crate/Carrier/Car Seat/Baby Gates/Iris Pen
Training Books/Breed Books
First Aid Kit/Musher's Paw Creme or Coconut Oil/Caro Syrup or Nutri Cal/Styptic Powder/List or Book of Poisonous Plants and Foods/Phone Number of the nearest ER for Animals/Hydrogen Peroxide/Rectal Thermometer
Winter Coat or Sweater

Bed/Blanket/Heat Pad

Treats/Training Treats

Collar/ID Tag/Lead

Crate/Carrier

Brush/Deodorizing Spray/Shampoo/Conditioner/Nail Clippers

Puppy Pads

Toys

Vitamins/Supplements

Toothbrush/Toothpaste/Dentasticks

Training Books/Breed Books


Jessica covered just about everything.
I'd like to add to the list:

Car seat

Harness

Caro syrup or nutri cal

Natures miracle for carpet stains

Poop bags to clean up on walkies 😊💩🐶🐾

Food place mat/feeders/bowls

Paw creme if you live some place cold. The salt on the pavements here in winter months really destroys dogs paws. I use Musher's paw creme or coconut oil

In case the new puppy gets low blood sugar. You can use honey too.
