Initial Purchases For New K-9 Unit

My department is currently developing a K-9 Unit and I have been selected as our K-9 Officer. With this comes the task of building the program from scratch. My question is what type of equipment should be purchased initially to be able to properly equip the handler and dog. Items such as collars, leads, training equipment, ect? Are the pre-made kits I've seen from some vendors a good idea? A K-9 Unit is new to me and the department so any ifnformation is greatly appreciated.
