You are now about to bring your puppy home and welcome him as a new family member. If you are driving some distance to pick up your pet, take along a towel or two, a water bowl, some water and your pups leash and collar with his new ID tags attached. Also take along some plastic baggies and a roll of paper towels in case you make any bathroom pit stops, or in case the pup has a potty accident in the car or experiences carsickness. You want to be prepared to clean up! No matter how far you are traveling, you should either arrange for someone to accompany you so that he can hold the puppy on the way home or have a travel crate with you to keep the puppy safe and secure.
