Will you soon be welcoming a new puppy into your home? Here are a few things to keep in mind when puppy-proofing your home.
The first thing to keep in mind is that puppies love to chew on things, so make sure you put away all small items that could be choking hazards. These choking hazards could be rubber bands, jewelry, paper clips, and coins. You will also need to make sure all medications are in a place where puppies cannot reach them. So don’t keep the medication on a night table or a bathroom counter, even if they are in a pill bottle or dispenser. Another thing puppies will chew on is electrical cords. So move these electrical cords or string them through a cord concealer.
Another thing to remember is to secure trashcans. Puppies will be attracted to the scents from the garbage, and they will want to explore the garbage. Keeping garbage cans secure will help your puppy from eating something poisonous for dogs, making him sick. On that line, make sure all poisonous houseplants are also out of reach of the puppy.
These are just a couple of things to keep in mind when puppy-proofing your home to help your new puppy stay safe.
