Puppy proofing your home

Sunday, April 22, 2012
posted by Jim Murphy

Before you bring a new puppy home, you should prepare your house. Young dogs seem to get into anything and everything within reach. If you’re not prepared, their curiosity could prove dangerous. Start by looking at your house the way dog would see it. Look down low for items that could be hazardous such as trash, electrical wires or sharp objects. Make sure that you keep pesticides, chemicals, medicines and anti freeze out of reach.  The best idea is to store these dangerous items in a locked cabinet.  Some houseplants can also prove poisonous to pets so keep them up high.  Remember, no matter how well that you think you puppy proofed your home,  you still need to watch your new dog every carefully.

Remember, your pets count!
