Pet Proofing Your Home

For thousands of years, dogs have been “man’s best friend.” Friendship is a two-way street, and dog-loving humans have tried to keep their pets safe in return.

As our world moves faster and becomes more complex, dogs need our extra attention now more than ever to stay safe. With a little foresight and action, dog’s best friends can create a “home, safe home” for their precious pooches.

Dogs have a keen curiosity. If you look at your home from your dog’s perspective, you’ll probably find all kinds of interesting things to examine. What most people don’t realize is that dogs first sniff, then mouth items to learn about them. So, be sure to keep the following out of your dog’s reach:

  • Roach and ant traps
  • Electric and phone cords
  • Cigarettes in ashtrays
  • Open doors and windows
  • Rubber bands
  • Housecleaning chemicals
  • Candles
  • Christmas trees ornaments
  • Paperclips
  • Uncovered trash cans
  • Human medications
  • Chocolate
  • Grapes
  • Anti-freeze
  • Plastic bags
  • Valuable books
  • Wedding rings and other jewelry
  • Batteries
