Thank you very much for your warm welcome, I will post some pictures later
We are getting a toy poodle, 9 weeks old.
Actually, do you have any recommendations in regards to feeding bowl, grooming, and detangling accessories, leash, or harness, treats, and food?

Hello and Welcome to you, family and puppy to be!

I'll drop in some links to supply lists compiled by members. There will be some repetition. Do come back after reviewing if you'd like more elaboration or name brands recommended. Come back regardless :) We all get happy when puppies arrive!

For toys especially, hypoglycemia can be a life threatening issue. I'll add the link to that stickied thread too.

One more link to a resource recently posted on PF. This is great for seeing from the puppy's eyes.

I would suggest getting the puppy a little older. At least ten weeks old. More and more breeders of toy sized dogs keep them until they are 12 weeks old. This extra time with their mother (and hopefully littermate) will give the puppy time to learn bite inhibition and be well started with housebreaking. He will be more confident, as well.

With a tiny dog you really have no window of learning to potty outside, like you do with a golden retriever. He must NEVER be in a situation where he will pee inside. Train him immediately to sit at the door when you take him outside. This will become his "I gotta go!" cue. Wee pups also have problems with their teeth setting. Give him RAW chicken wing tips to chew on to help his teeth set. You can use the wings as a reward for potting outside and keep him out while he chews.
