Puppy–Proofing Your Home

SHARE     pinterest

Your puppy will be a natural explorer. Ensure her exploration is fun and safe by puppy-proofing:

  • Storing all detergents and chemicals out of reach.
  • Restricting access to plants that might be dangerous to dogs, including: poinsettias, azaleas, rhododendrons, dumbcane, Japanese yew, oleander and English ivy, to name a few.
  • Storing breakable items safely out of the way.
  • Hiding or covering electrical cords that could be chewed.
  • Keeping toys and any objects small enough to swallow out of reach.
  • Covering or fencing off any outdoor pond, pool or hot tub.
