Tell me if I'm forgetting anything, or if you can help recommend an item for one of the things I'm looking for!

Crate - I have a boy puppy, have been told not to get a wire crate for potty training...I'm assuming this is right and makes sense. Wondering about a good brand or should I just go with anything.

Puppy treats for training - Zuke's Peanut Butter-Flavored Mini Naturals Dog Treats, 16 Ounces. Had VERY good reviews on amazon about being a perfect size and dogs go crazy for them.

Furminator - for when my puppy gets older and starts to shed.

Conair nail clipper - has guard to help make sure you don't cut too much.

Toys - isqueak rubber ball, dunno what else to get yet...maybe some sort of stuffed animal?

Food - Orijen Puppy food...willing to try other foods if you guys dont think this one is good! i just bought a bag of it so need to cancel it before it ships if you guys dont recommend it!

Food/Water dish - got a ceramic bowl with his name for 13 bucks.

Collar/Leash - Got a collar with attached safe dog tag. Instead of putting my name I put my email along with phone # and his name! Emails can normally always be accessed even if your phone gets disconnected or changed!

anything else you'd recommend?!

also going to rebuild the back fence and put bricks or something around it to help prevent digging under.

he actually won't get here till next friday but im so excited!

A new beagle, and a puppy. You are going to have so much fun.

Now if you can find a store that sells abundant patience and humor, please stock up on it for those chewing times, those potty training times. And then don't for get to get the LOVE packed in...cause he is going to steal your heart.

How about a blanket for the crate, and maybe another one for outside the crate, when he's just too tired out to make it to his home....

You are going to make a great beagle person....and hey, keep our addy close, we love to hear and see new beagles.

A good enzyme spray for those potential in-house accidents! We always keep a bottle of Simple Green for dog messes on hand.

Kongs are great, we used the spray can filling when they were puppies and they loved it. Great for keeping them occupied and out of trouble.

Don't go crazy on the stuffed toys yet until you see how your puppy does with them. They never lasted too long in this house!

Nylabones for puppies are great too as well as those teething toys you put in the freezer!

Good luck, can't wait to see some pics!

sorry know this is an older post.

you just use regular simple green?
Not for the dog accidents, they have this at most pet stores and it smells wonderful, works great!

thanks...will go look for it! I waited all day yesterday for her to pee. Of course she insisted on waiting till I got to my parents place. ;p A few more times on our floor, and dumb luck once on a potty pad I used to wipe the floor.

thanks! potty pad #2. Early this morning I was a bit late to get up, I could hear her whimpering but couldn't get my body up. I think she tried really hard to hold it. As I got up she wee'd in her crate. Picked up Nature's Miracle orange-oxy power stain & Oder remover from a pet store while we were getting a tag and non-squeaky toy. Had her with us, and Hawaii doesnt have many pet friendly stores for us to hunt down the simple green.
