Dogproofing Basics

Have you decided to adopt a puppy? Congratulations! Few things bring joy into our lives the way puppies do. However, your little buddy is going to be full of mischief. You'll need to do lots of puppyproofing to make your place safe.

Remove or secure things like toxic plants, wires and cords, chemicals, medication, and anything small or sharp. You'll also want to keep laundry and garbage in secure bins, and keep personal items, like shoes and purses, in a spot your dog can't reach. You can use things like taste deterrents on things you can't easily move out of the way.

Training is also important. When your puppy chews inappropriately, tell him ‘No!’ in a firm tone. Then, give him a chew toy. Ask your veterinary clinic Coral Springs, FL for more advice on puppy care. This should include tips on teething, housebreaking, and training.
