For those getting a puppy for the first time, or who have not had a new dog in a while, there are a lot of items that can make it easier to settle a new pet into a home. Puppy starter kits contain many of the items you will need packaged together to save time and money. While none of the kits actually come with "everything" you will need, you will find many helpful tools in each of them. If you are getting a dog that is not house trained, consider a kit that includes training pads. A nutritional starter kit will be helpful if you are uncertain about what to feed your new pet. Some starter kits contain training tools. Others rely more heavily on providing toys and activity for a new pup. If you are buying as a gift, those with the toys may be best, because you will prevent duplicating items like a leash or a bowl that the new puppy owner may already have.
