    You don't need much for a puppy. A leash & a crate. You might also want some old socks to toss (or you could buy a small canvas bumper).

    Eventually you'll want some bumpers or paint rollers. I used a choke collar, heeling stick and a long rope to teach obedience (but not until my pup was a bit older).

    A whistle would be good to teach come and whistle sit. I did that pretty early on after he got the hang of the basics.

    Four foot lead, collar, tennis ball, canvas puppy bumper, and pieces of hot dog for bait (I cut a hot dog lengthwise and then cut them in slices about as thick as a nickle).

    You'll need more leads and more bumpers and a whistle when he's older.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    Don't forget to get YOURSELF a couple of bottles of your favorite booze!
    You will need that, as you and pup begin your journey!

    I'm pretty new to training for hunt test, but I have been training with a group since my puppy was one day shy of nine weeks. She is nine months now. So here are the things I have bought over the months so I could train with a group.
    List:
    crate, many different size collars(plastic is best for fast drying), six foot leash, 40 foot long line, towels (water work), bumpers all kinds (started with canvas, then white plastic, then black & white, black, and finally orange) also my bumpers are small for puppies and large for adult, dumb bell, duck call, several different whistles, canvas bags to store all my stuff, a starter pistol, blanks, boots, clothes that match mud, water dishes that attach to the crate, a fan for outside, a bucket to sit on, black gloves, ice chest, hand wipes (dead ducks used many times can be gross so I like to wipe my hands before eating lunch), chap lip balm, hat, a ramp (for my pup to get in and out of the back of the truck), e-collar, two way radio, choke collar, prong collar, a tab, several different kinds of dead birds, training books and videos. I didn't need to buy a bark collar.

    After typing my list I thing I need to buy an SUV to put all my stuff in it. I have used every thing I have bought, but at different points during our training.
