Like babies and small children, puppies are naturally curious, and will explore their new territory and its contents. This could mean getting themselves into potentially dangerous situations!

To create a safe space fence off one part of the home, which will be your puppy’s new territory for their first few months. Then make sure the following items are out of reach from your new puppy:

  • Electrical items and cords
  • Chemicals and toxins
  • Plants
  • Rugs
  • Breakables
  • Valuables
  • Trash

Additionally be sure to sweep or vacuum the area frequently to remove any small hazards, and keep the area is clean and tidy so your puppy can safely enjoy his new environment.
