20 Tips for Dog Safety Around the Home

Just like we have to baby proof our homes when we begin our families, we must also proof the house for our puppies and other pets as well. Man‘s best friend can get into the same mischief, and more, just like your toddlers to, and sometimes put themselves in danger as well. That is why it is so important to keep them safe and sound by practicing proper safety protocols, if you will, throughout your home before you being a puppy in. If you are wondering where you would even start with puppy proofing your house, then you have come to the right place. In this article, we are going to bring to you twenty of the best tips and tricks to keep you dog and pets safe in the home. With that said, let’s get started.

Food Safety

This is probably one of the most obvious safety protocols that we think about when we first bring a dog, or any other pet, into the home. Sure, we love to spoil our dogs with some bits of human food here and there, but there are actually quite a few human foods that can make your dog very sick, and could potentially be fatal as well. This can include foods such as chocolate, grapes, garlic, onions, milk, macadamia nuts, raw meat, yeast dough, coffee, and so many more items. Of course, this also includes items that are spoiled, molding, or past their expiration date as well. If you would like to obtain a full list of foods and beverages that can make your pooch sick, you can find resources both online or via your local vet or animal shelter.
