Puppy-proofing is like preparing for a tiny, furry tornado! Here are five tips to keep your home safe and sound!
Hide the Wires: Puppies love to chew, and unfortunately, they don't discriminate between toys and charging cables. Cover or hide electrical cords to prevent any shocking surprises.
Secure Cabinets and Trash Bins: Puppies are expert explorers. Make sure cabinets containing cleaning supplies, medications, or other hazardous items are secured with childproof locks. Also, invest in a sturdy trash bin with a secure lid to avoid any garbage feasts.
Create a Safe Space: Set up a designated area for your puppy with their bed, toys, and water bowl. Use baby gates to keep them out of areas where they could get into trouble or accidentally hurt themselves.
Pick Up Small Items: Anything small enough to fit in a puppy's mouth is fair game. Be vigilant about picking up small objects, like rubber bands, hair ties, or children's toys, that could pose a choking hazard.
Protect Your Furniture: Puppies love to chew, and your furniture might look appealing. Provide plenty of appropriate chew toys, and consider using bitter-tasting sprays on furniture edges to deter chewing.
Remember, patience is key when puppy-proofing. Puppies are curious, but with a little preparation, you can create a safe and enjoyable environment for your new furry friend.
