So in 20 days I will be bringing home my gorgeous jet black German Shepard pup who is currently called Shadow (although this may change if I have my way but probably not because I never get my way)

So what am i going to need to welcome this little boy into our home?

List me up please people! smile

Exhaustive list above, can only add harness/car crate and poo bags...

You should come and have a look at the 'new puppy' thread...if you start from the beginning you will be whimpering in a corner by lunchtime, but persevere and you will see that it does get easier grin. It has been a very useful and friendly place to ask questions, share tips and grumble when necessary.

I'd would add name of a dog trainer to that. I have found having someone on hand to call a real help. We've signed up to classes which are good to go to too. Our trainers have german shepherds which if you found similar might be helpful!

Congratulations!
