Few questions and concerns about 8 week old pit

My pup turned 8 weeks yesterday, i'm going to pick him up today from the breeder! I had a few questions though. I already set up a vet apt for him on Saturday,i'm taking him in to get checked up and his shots. When i was on the phone with the vet, he told me he wouldn't get all shots in one day, how does that work? How long before i take him out?

I planned to use eukanuba dog food dry and wet for him. Any foods or way to serve the food you can recommend to me please?

Also any other products ? i.e shampoo,treats,teeth care ..............

Also i live in NYC its pretty warm out here,the pup is kept in a wooden dog house with his sibling and of course mother outside,anything i should worry about?

??? Thanks in advance!

Also i do my research, i'm dead set on what needs to be done, i'm a reptile breeder so naturally i take proper husbandry very seriously. I just like to ask for other people point of views on the situation,i'm sure not all of you use the same food or shampoo.

What you need is a couple of good puppy books to help you out!

Here are my two favs
Amazon.com: Before and After Getting Your Puppy: The Positive Approach to Raising a Happy, Healthy, and Well-Behaved Dog (9781577314554): Dr. Ian Dunbar: Books Amazon.com: Before and After Getting Your Puppy: The Positive Approach to Raising a Happy, Healthy, and Well-Behaved Dog (9781577314554): Dr. Ian Dunbar: Books

I would choose a better dog food as eukanuba . Blue Buffalo has a great puppy formula . They also have very nutritious treats. If the dog will be moved into the house when you bring it home you may have trouble with the house training at first. This will help you train where it is appropriate to go
Dog Training Channel - Dog Training: House training a puppy or rescue dog Videos
I really like this trainer she is all about positive training and has lots of videos. Teeth care I use this Dog Dental Care | Pet Oral Hygiene | Cat Tooth Cleaning Product
Its natural and helps kill the bacteria that build up on teeth and is easy to use.
Shampoo I like kelko because it is natural and smells great
