Puppies play in a cage at a pet store in Columbia, Md.

Will I get everything I need in a puppy starter kit or will I have to buy other products?

Some puppy starter kits are more comprehensive than others. Occasionally, you’ll find large kits that contain almost everything you’ll need, including toys, a collar and leash, grooming tools and bowls, but you’ll need to buy a bed separately, plus any specific items that might be “wants” rather than “needs.” Then, you have smaller puppy starter kits that contain only a handful of items, in which case you’ll still need to buy a variety of items for your pup.

Should I start training my puppy right away?

Moving to a new home is a huge upheaval for a puppy, so we’d recommend giving your new dog a few days to settle in before attempting any training. That said, we’d suggest getting him used to his bathroom training schedule right away by taking him outside every couple of hours, as well as after meals, and at any time that he shows signs that he might need to relieve himself.
