Whether youíre bringing home a new puppy or adopting an adult dog, your new 4-legged friend is sure to be a part of the family. Just as you would when bringing home a new baby, youíll want to make preparations to your space for both you and your dogís safety.  You donít want to overlook anything and then have you or your pet get hurt. As a rule of thumb: Anything that you would protect a baby from you should protect a dog from. These dangers include:

  • Chemicals
  • Prescription medications
  • Small parts that can be ingested
  • Cleaning supplies
  • Hazardous houseplants
  • Chocolate/candy
  • Steep stairways

Keep your furry friend healthy and save yourself from costly vet bills by taking precautions. Simple measures can make a big difference. Safety items that you can use to help protect both you and your pet are:

  • Gates
  • Power strip covers
  • Locks for cabinets
  • Keep pills, candy, and chemicals on high shelves that canít be reached
  • Cord wranglers

These little devices can prevent your dog from chewing or getting into hazardous things. Itís also a good idea to protect dogs from steep falls on stairways and decks by blocking certain areas off. Since many dogs donít know what to keep out of their snouts, you want to think like a dog and know that if they can chew it, they will!  

Keep Your Dog Out Of The Trash

Dogs tend to like to see what they can find in the trash. If you get a trashcan that canít be accessed by dogs, you wonít need to worry. A hidden trashcan in a cabinet or island can help to alleviate this problem. You can also get a can with a lid that canít be easily popped off.

Keep The Dogís Access To A Minimum

If your dog is home alone all day while youíre at work you may want to close doors or put up gates in order to restrict the dog to a certain area of the house. This way, the dog will know his place and wonít be able to cause any kind of damage.     


Keep Clutter To A Minimum

Clutter is dangerous to both humans and dogs alike. If you know a dog is bound to chew things, put it away! Keeping floors and pathways clean also protects both you and your pet from tripping. Staying organized is also a positive for everyone in the house.  

If you always think with safety in mind when you have a dog, youíll keep both you and your pet safe in your home the whole year through.
