|Unique pet stain and odor eliminator. It's not a detergent, it's a non-pathenogenic bacteria that eats whatever is causing the stain and odor. I get it at my vet and at the vaccuum repair shop where I am.
Ionic air purifier, also . YOu'll want a pet first aid kit, quick clot, poo bags, pee mats, and I would buy a kennel, if you haven't already, there might be emergency situations where you will need one even if you don't use it at any other time. Oust is fairly safe.You will need soft toys ,preferably stuffing free, for supervised play and tough ones for chewing on, and a ball for interactive play. Also a water bottle. A spritz is an amazing deterrant. I wouldn't suggest leaving water out all the time until you have them fully potty trained. dogs need about 1 oz. water per pound per day, so you should ration it to help facilitate knowing when your dog is more likely to need to go. Bitter apple spray or jalapeno spray for spraying things you want left unmolested, and urine scent spray so you can spritz the pad, or spritz the grass where you want the dog to target as a place to relieve. A dog bed is essential if you don't want the dog on the furniture or the bed and if you don't want to use a kennel. Baby gates, of course, if there are off limit areas. Don't expect them to work long. Most dogs, even Chihuahuas find a way over around or through them.
I also suggest going around your house crawling on your belly. You will be amazed at what you will find from a dogs perspective. Take up your houseplants, and find good places to hide the remote controls or they will become chew toys. The plastic bins you get when you go to the hospital, or a foot bath bucket are perfect size for rinsing muddy paws off. Buy pet shampoo, toddler toothbrushes (human toddler toothbrushes are small enough to get to the back of the mouth), and enzymatic toothpaste like Nutravet. If your dog is light colored and short coated, there is pet sunscreen.
Buy a rubbermaid container for the dog's toys. You can actually train the dog to put the toys back on command if you want to. For the first week or so, keep the dog on leash in the house so you know what he is up to while you are home.
