Looks awesome! I would get a regular leash 4 or 6 ft ( I have both) as the retractables can scare a pup (with the noise) and honestly I just do not like them. I do not find them safe. Also you need some healthy bully sticks, and bones :)

LOL someone went a bit mad in the pet shop! Lucky puppy :)

On a serious note, if you plan on training him to toilet outside you will need a torch, wellies and an umbrella for those night time/early morning toilet breaks. (The worst part of owning a puppy imo, but it's only for a couple of weeks if you are lucky)

This is going to be one spoiled Pup LOL

Merrick Doggie WishBone Tendons | Dog | Treats | PetFlow

And some of my kids favorite healthy treats:

Never give a dog a cooked bone they splinter. I know you can give raw and I have heard a lot like to give Chicken necks. Not sure if it is the same for a pup as I am still learning raw. I just switched all 6 of mine to pre made raw diets a few weeks ago. Wicked Pixie, Brodysmom etc are the best to answer that one.

What are you going to feed him?

What a lucky pup, everything you've got him is lovely, I can't think of anything you've missed at the moment, I also don't like the retractable leads and would just use a regular lead, much safer. X

Also not sure on Uk weather coming up but there is a chill in the air starting here. The shirts, sweaters, and coat might be too big to start off with (from the looking at photo) so you might want to get one or two smaller items. I know Elaina has some good deals of a few things in XS and XXS Ruff Ruff Couture line and she will ship to UK.

My two love the brand and I think she has some of the thermal shirts etc. Here is the boy stuff she has. PM her for sizes etc. She can help find something that will fit or fit better.

I have a picture like that from when I was preparing for Frodo's arrival a few months ago! It's JUST like getting ready for a baby: scary, exciting and very expensive! Just remember that you don't have to get absolutely everything beforehand, as you'll get a better sense of what your pup needs once you're already living with him. So long as you have the basics, everything else can wait. Remember, too, that a trip to Pets at Home (or similar) is great fun with a puppy, and a good socialisation exercise. Good luck, and keep us posted. :)

It all looks wonderful he is a lucky little boy. One thing the puppy pads, I pick up human bed pads, from walmart and walgreens, much cheaper and is the same thing, just get the large ones and more in package.
