Just as new parents must make sure to have a crib, diapers, formula, and other supplies ready for the arrival of a new baby, it’s important that you have several items on hand before bringing home a new French Bulldog puppy. You don’t want to be caught scrambling to find the items you need while also taking care of a rambunctious pup. In addition to vet-approved food, here’s a checklist of supplies to have ready when bringing home a new Frenchie.

The Right Crate

Like all canines, French Bulldogs appreciate the comfort and safety of a cozy little retreat. This means that finding an appropriately sized crate for your new puppy is extremely important. Make sure that it will be big enough for your puppy once they reach full size, with enough room to allow the dog to sit, stand, turn around, and lie down. A crate will be important when it comes time to discipline and house train your new puppy while you’re away from home.

A Playpen and Toys

Puppies have a lot of energy, and yours will want to spend hours running around, exploring, and chewing on anything he or she can find. Prepare your home by setting up a wire-panel playpen that confines the dog to a specific area while also providing enough space for a lot of movement and exploration. Start the puppy out with a variety of toys—it’s better to offer ropes and rubber bones to chew on than shoes and pieces of furniture.

A Collar and Leash

It’s important to get your new French Bulldog puppy used to wearing a collar and a leash or harness as early as possible. Start by having them wear it around the house before going for a walk outside. It will be easier for them to explore new sensations and territories outside the house if they’re already accustomed to their safety gear.
