What to bring when picking up your new Chihuahua Puppy!

Print Friendly and PDF

Congratulations on your new baby!!

Here is a good supply list for the car When you come to pickup baby:

1. Crate ( medium size is good.)

2. Soft towels to line the crate, 4-5 extras in case of car sickness or Potty accident.

3. Wet wipes, paper towels for puppy cleanup and plastic grocery bags for poo poo pickup if needed durring stops.

4. A couple bottles of water and small dish, can be a plastic storage type as long as it isn't too deep.

5. NewsPaper or weewee pads to lay down on the car floor or trunk area. This is for "potty on the go" if you would prefer not to expose your new baby to strange ground while you are traveling when they need to relieve themselves.

6. OLDER PUPPIES ONLY: A soft mesh type harness and leash, please remind me the week before you pick baby up to get the measurements so you can pick out the correct size! WE ONLY RECOMMEND HARNESSES FOR WALKING YOUR PUPPY.

7. OLDER PUPPIES ONLY: A stretchy ( small section of elastic) kitty collar (We provide a jingle bell in your puppy pack).


Your baby will not be eating on the road, just possibly thirsty. ( unless you are stopping for an overnight stay on your way home), Feeding them while traveling at this age will just contribute to the possibility of car sickness.

We will be feeding a little fortical to your Chihuahua Baby before you get into the car. You will be given a gift bag when you pick Baby up and an orientation and counseling, you should feel absolutely confident you know what your doing by the time you leave with your new baby! The bag will consist of: a soft blanky, a small bag of the current kibble your baby is eating here, several breed appropriate toys, one new tube of Fortical.

Please make sure you become familiar with all the information on the required reading pages!!!!
