Puppy-Proofing Checklist

1. Clean Up

Before the puppy arrives at your home make sure to clean everything with a vaccum and remove any tiny objects that could be swallowed by the dog.

2. Remove Chewable Objects

Pick up everything that shouldn’t be on the floor, like laundry, shoes and open boxes. Remove any unnecessary objects like expensive carpets or cushions.

3. Store Wires & Cords

No puppy should be able to chew on cords and wires. Store them behind furniture or out of reach.

4. Secure Cleaners

Secure any chemical cleaners, paint or any other dangerous liquid that could be swallowed by your puppy.

5. Lock away Medication

What shouldn’t be near children, shouldn’t be near puppies or dogs. Any medicine is dangerous for them.

6. Close Trash Cans

All dogs love food, so raiding the trash can isn’t unusually. Close any trash cans with a lid and ensure that they cannot be opened by a dog.

7. Spraying Furniture (Optional)

You can hinder your dog from chewing on the furniture by spraying the legs with taste deterrent.
