In my over 7 years working in a pet supply retail store, rarely did a day go by without someone coming in with a newly acquired puppy or dog (who, sadly, usually looked terribly overwhelmed by all the sudden environmental changes) that had either gotten the dog completely on impulse (always a terrible idea), or had planned to get the dog, but hadn’t gotten any of the supplies they would need to care for the dog ahead of time (not the best idea, either).
Do yourself and your puppy/dog a HUGE favor and have everything ready before you take him home!
