How to dog proof your house

Just like you need to baby-proof a house when a baby becomes active, you need to dog proof your house when you bring a new puppy into it too.

Breakables
Store breakables that are on "puppy level". Tails can quickly sweep valuables off of a table!

Cleaners and other bottles
Especially for chewy puppies, make sure there are no bottles of cleaning products within reach. The same goes for bottles of bubble bath on the edge of bathtubs!

Poisonous plants
Make sure you do not have any plants that are poisonous to curious dogs. A quick internet search will tell you, or you can look on the plant tags if you kept them. Do not assume your puppy won't try and eat the leaves, berries or flowers or that the plant couldn't be poisonous. If in doubt, make sure it is out of reach and you clean up any bits of the plant that fall to the floor.

Kid's toys
Puppies find it hard to distinguish what it a puppy toy and what are kids toys, so keep your kid's toys off the floor where they could become chew toys!

Electrical cords
Electrical cords can be tempting for puppies to chew, so make sure your puppy doesn't have access to them.
