When your puppy arrives home they'll have to get used to a new environment, new people and maybe even other dogs. However before they arrive there are a number of necessary checks and changes that you can make to ensure that your puppy will be safe in their new space.
Puppy-proofing your home
There are a number of hazards inside your home that you may not have initially considered, however by doing some simple ‘puppy-proofing’ in advance you can make sure that you're prepared for your new puppy's arrival.
Securing your garden for your new puppy
Once preparations have been made indoors, checks should be carried out on any outside spaces your puppy will have access to.
Another important way to prepare your home for the arrival of a new puppy is to make sure you have easy access to the emergency vet number. This could either be displayed somewhere in the house or saved in your mobile phone to ensure you can call them quickly if your puppy becomes ill or hurts themselves in the home.
By carrying out a number of checks in advance and getting your home ready in the right way, you can help your puppy be safe and comfortable in their new environment.
