    Haha I'm sure there will have to be lots of stops if I don't want to arrive home in a pool of wee

When he's fully grown you may want to invest in a better quality one, but for a pup the cheaper ones should be fine.
    Thanks Beloz for that advice

    Oh God I forgot that he will be likely to be sick on his first car trip. I remember that with my first puppy. RileyJ I will look at the sites you have given me and I am reading up about crate training but I've never used that technique before

    If the washing basket is reasonably tall – you can use it also for where pup sleeps of a night-time next to your bed – for an easy start with toilet training of the pup.

    Do look at crate training your pup – it will make things so much easier for you for lots of reasons. There are heaps of different varieties – but I prefer to use the metal ones - easier to keep clean and are stronger.

    Next on your shopping list would be a door barrier/s:

    Then next – maybe:

    Compost Bin Storage Cage I/N 3160000 | Bunnings Warehouse

    I have 2 sets of these. They are excellent for setting up play areas in or outside for the pup.

    How exciting for you ! Expect to see plenty of photos of this new pup in ~ 2 weeks - Please !
    Good Luck ! Attachment 12369
