1. Dog Collar and Microchip

The first thing you need to get for your dog is a collar with ID tag on it. This will ensure your dog won’t get lost which is very sad. But an ID tag is not the safest method these days. Because your dog may lose its collar or it may get taken off by a thief. That’s when microchip comes in handy.

This if the dog is found by some nice person or a shelter, there is a good chance that they will scan the dog for a microchip and then return the dog to its owner.

2. Food and Water Bowl

The next things are the food and water bowl for your dog. These bowls are usually stainless steel so that they are very sturdy and your dog can’t break them. You can also get plastic or ceramic bowls but those have some drawbacks. The plastic ones are cheap but they are more prone to containing bacteria and residue. Now the ceramic ones are expensive but look nice. They are prone to breaking as well but as they are heavy, they won’t become a play thing for your dog.

3. Dog Bed and Crate

Then come the dog bed and crate. A dog bed is essential to keep your dog away from cold or hot weather and crawling insects. It also enables your dog to sleep properly and comfortably. As for the crate, you may or may not want to crate train your dog depending on the situation.
