Puppy-Proofing Your Home

Use cord covers and organizers to conceal loose electrical wires that curious puppies could chew on.

Hide Wires

Use pet gates to block access to rooms with hazards like kitchens or staircases.

Block Off Hazards

Keep household toxins and cleaners locked away and out of reach in cupboards or closets.

Remove Toxins

Invest in covered, locking trash cans so puppies can't get into and eat garbage.

Secure Trash

Restrict access to specific puppy-safe zones in your home using pens or closed doors.

Limit Access

Fence off hazardous areas like pools or gardens and supervise outside time.

Puppy-Proof Outdoors  

Have plenty of safe chew toys available to divert puppy chewing urges.
