Puppy proofing your home

Friday, August 31, 2012

Before you bring your new puppy home, you’ll need to 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 a dog would see it. Look down low for objects that could be hazardous such as wires, trash and sharp objects. Make sure to keep pesticides, anti freeze and all other chemicals out of reach. It’s a good idea to store the dangerous items in a locked cabinet.Some house plants could  also be poisonous to pets so keep them up high. Remember, no matter how well you think that you’ve puppy proofed your home, you should still  keep a close eye on your new puppy.

Remember, your pets count!
