Welcome! Congrats on Millie, I love that name :D Some supplies Millie will need would be food/water bowls, food (no fillers, i.e. wheat, corn, etc. would be best), treats, toys, a collar & leash, a crate/kennel (if you are planning on crate-training her), a dog bed, a brush/comb, etc. When we were getting Cocoa, we made a trip to the pet store and got everything we could possibly think of! :p Can't wait to see her pic!!

I've never heard of a heatpad for puppies, is it just so she feels like she is still with her litter mates?

It sounds like you've got everything under control! Hope everything goes well when you get her!! :D

It is today, isn't it? How has it been? How exciting for you. I remember how I felt 4 mnonths ago when we got Teddy - and every day since I have been fascinated by him.
This is a special day for you. Good luck with with wee Millie - your life will be enhanced by her.

The best thing we for training was liver treats. Pan fry small bits and freeze on a tray for later use. If Jes know I have some in my pocket when we are out she never goes far, and will do anything to get one!

Ali and Cal ... good luck with Millie. Our cockapoo's name is Bailey and he's almost 5 months old, we brought him home on July 26th (he was 3 months old). Bailey is in the crate also, the first week he cried a little at night, but has been fine ever since. We only put him in the crate at night now...if we go out during the day we have him in the kitchen with "dog gates" by the doorways. I would say that Bailey is 95% house broken, took him out constantly in the beginning (no paper training), but you really have to be home and work at it. Now most of the time he'll either sit and look at us and "bark" or he goes to the back door to tell us he has to go...if we don't get to him fast enough he will make on the carpet by the back door. GOOD LUCK!! it's a lot of work, but definitely worth it.

Teddy's recall is pretty good when he knows we have liver treats on offer. I only use them for recall, as he loves them and he has been going backwards with recall training - was reasonable and now he has developed selective hearing technique!
