How to Puppy Proof Your Home

Puppies are very inquisitive and inclined to chew anything within their reach so it’s important to keep floors clear and to keep anything dangerous out of their way such as electric cables.

  • Using an indoor kennel gives them a safe and secure den well away from dangerous temptations. Get them used to the indoor kennel from an early stage.
  • Keep ponds covered.
  • Be aware of plants and bulbs in the garden that can be dangerous to puppies: The Dogs Trust has a helpful list of plants to avoid here
  • You could use a stair gate to prevent puppies from falling downstairs.
  • Don’t let giant breed dogs go down the stairs as it can be damaging for the joints
