12 How to Puppy-Proof Your Home for That Perfect Pad


New puppy owners often forget to properly protect their home for the safety of their new housemates. This can cause accidents and injuries to the puppy as well as annoying property damage.

Modifying your home for their arrival doesn’t have to be as difficult or expensive as you think.

1. See the world through your puppy’s eyes

Get down on your hands and knees and try to view the world through the eyes of your puppy. What can they get into? What are the dangers? Puppies are naturally curious and cheeky, but there are some simple steps you can follow in order to supply your new furry friend with a safe, happy and healthy home!

Preparing your home for a new best friend is similar to doing so for an inquisitive toddler. In order to eliminate dangers, you need to see the world from you puppy’s perspective.

Your dog will want to inquire every room and every corner into detail and won’t be able to make a difference between toys and items that can harm them. Basically, it’s completely up to you to make sure that your pooch is safe under your roof (and beyond, but that’s another story).
