Yorkshire Terrier Puppy Supplies Needed
This is my list of the basic necessities for your new yorkie puppy. Your trainer may have additional items, as there are many other helpful and fun products available.
Eukanuba Small Breed Puppy Food and healthy treats (Eukanuba and Pro Plan have several types).
A copy of Jan Fennel's book or DVD of "The Dog Listener". It is a must read/watch for any of my puppy's new owners. If you only read one thing-be sure this is it. Here is a link to Jan's site where the book or DVD can be purchased www.janfennellthedoglistener.com.
Stainless-steel non-tipping food and water bowls
(won't break or absorb odors).
I.D. Tags with the contact information for yourself and your veterinarian
A “breakaway” collar and a 6-foot retractable leash
A wire crate (aprox. 18 x 24 in. in size) for training purposes at home.
toothbrush and paste
Brushes and combs
(a slicker brush will take out tangles in short hair, a toothed comb is needed to get deep into the coat to get the hidden tangles out).
Cleanup supplies such as a stain remover, paper towels, deodorizing spray
(Natures Miracle is a good one)
Chew Toys, nail clippers
An exercise pen for assistance in crate training (I recommend placing your yorkie puppy in the pen in a place where you want your yorkie puppy to potty for life. When you take your yorkie puppy outside, carry him and place him in the pen so your yorkie puppy doesn’t go anywhere else. Do this for a week or two and that will become his primary restroom.) Another recommendation is to place your pen somewhere in mulch or someplace not in the grass so you do not have to clean the spot every time you mow in the summertime. These exercise pens are a necessity and can be found at Pet Edge (link shown below).
