Everyone knows that young puppies keep you up all night, have to be let out to go to the bathroom every couple of hours, have accidents all over the house, chew on everything they can get their paws on (including cats), and don’t like being left alone at ALL. But there were many things that I didn’t realize she needed right off the bat. This page about what to do on your puppy’s first day was a huge help in getting a checklist in order.
But how do you puppy-proof your home for your new family member? There are lots of dangers for a baby animal who experiences the world through its mouth, just as much as its eyes and ears. Here’s a really helpful guide to getting your home ready, and a list of household items that are toxic to canines (from The Worst-Case Scenario Pocket Guide: Dogs).
You can follow Worst Case Books on Twitter for loads of fun and interesting tweets. But be sure to visit the 10 Household Items article, it is truly great information that every dog owner should know!
