Make your home safe for your new puppy.
  • Eliminate potential hazards/chemicals around the house and store them in safe places
  • Keep breakable objects out of reach. 
  • Puppies like to chew so remove things that a puppy could ingest.
  • Put up puppy gates in areas that are off limits or not safe for your puppy.
  • Deny access to electrical cords by hiding or covering them; make outlets safe with plastic outlet plugs. 
  • Keep the following house and garden plants out of reach: poinsettias, azaleas, rhododendrons, dumb cane, Japanese yew, oleander and English ivy among others. 
  • In the garage, be sure engine lubricants and other poisonous chemicals (especially antifreeze) are safely stored. 
  • If you own a pool or hot tub, check the cover or the surrounding fence to be sure they’re in good condition. 
  • If you provide your puppy with an outdoor kennel, place it in an area that provides sun and shelter in the pen.

It wont be long now!  You will be holding your sweet puppy!
