There are a few necessary purchases associated with buying a dog. Regardless of whether you are a puppy or an adult dog - you should get the following items on the dog accessories checklist before the new family member moves in, so that the cold nose can feel comfortable.
Drinking bowl and food bowl
The bowls are of course part of the basic dog accessories. One dog bowl for water and one for food. Ideally, the bowls have a non-slip underside or stand on a non-slip mat. You can find tips on buying in the guide: "How to find the right food bowl for your dog".
Collar or harness
Another must-have when it comes to dog accessories is of course the appropriate collar or harness to which the dog leash is attached. Both the collar and the harness have to be adapted exactly to the dog's body - trying it on in a specialist dog shop is very important. Don't save at the wrong end - good upholstery and safe workmanship are essential. More information here: "Tips for the right dog collar".
Dog leads are available in different versions. For example, you can choose an extendable stop leash on which you can lead your four-legged friend both close to your feet and a few meters ahead. More tips in the guide: "Leash guidance: How to get your dog used to the leash".
