Please help me with your knowledge & experience...?

Hi everyone : )
I still don't have my Pet puppy (not show dog) but am getting closer one day. : ) But It is important to get all the info I can.
I have done research & even bought an award winning havanese book but the thing missing is what brands are good & what brands I should stay away from. What toys/materials are toxic & what are the best non toxic safe ones (hopefully that I can buy at my local pet store).

1. What shampoo/conditioners R good & what is a big no no? Can I also add organic coconut to the dogs/puppy hair to keep it healthier? or what
2. Can I use a wash cloth to clean the eyes & ears?
3. Do they need toothbrush/toothpaste or do you just need dental treats or both? If so then what brands are good & what brands are bad?
Can u pls tell me what are the best brands of the following stuff & what I should stay away from? Also If I should add more things to my list...I am sure I am missing stuff?

Here is my rough draft check list:
Crate Got this already : )
food & water bowl
Potty supplies
Flee & tick protection other meds?
Puppy bed
Grooming supplies: scissors, Electric hair clippers, Steal comb, pin brush, sleeker brush, nail clippers etc.. I want to do the grooming myself & keep it in a puppy cut.
tooth brush, tooth paste/dental care
Shampoo & conditioner
gate for the kitchen area
towel & wash cloth

Someone told me to buy them cow bones to chew on?

I found the vet I want & read 5 star reviews : ) also the best part is that right in front is an awesome doggy park!!
I also have the brand new crate.

Before I get the rest of the supplies I want to know what are the best & what are the worst.

Thank you so much I appreciate you taking your time to help us all. I hope to one day be able to help too.
