Puppy Proofing Your Home
like other intelligent and playful babies, puppies investigate objects by touching, chewing and tasting them. Growing puppies love to explore but they need protection from household Items that are dangerous if swallowed.
1. Plastic bags. string. holday ornaments. sewing supplies. rubber bands. ribbon and twist ties
2. Paper clips. erasers and staples
3. Coinds. small board game pieces, fragile keepsakes and ornaments
4. Medication, vitamins and pill bottles
5. dental floss, razor blades, socks and underwear
6. some houeplants (including philodendron, mistletoe and poinsettia) and garden plants (suck as lily, azalea, daffodil, tomato, foxglove, yew and hydrangea) are toxic to dogs.
Ask your veterinarian for a complete list of plants that could be harmful to your pet.
Get covered trashcans for your kitchen and bathroom
keep kitchen countertops clean and clear so your puppy wont get in the habit of jumping up to inspect them
store household chemicals and pisons in a locked cabinet
close toilet lids so your puppy wont fall in or learn to drink from the bowl
