Living Room

Tuck any dangling wires from your lamps, TV, and stereos away so that your playful dog won’t accidentally chew on them. If there are potted plants in the area, place them in a safer spot as well as they may be poisonous for your pet. If your dog is new to the family, it’s a good idea to roll up any rugs or carpets until it is properly trained.


Bedroom

If not trained properly, your pup may chew on your bedsheets or even pee on your bed. If you want your furry friend to be able to roam around the resting quarters, be sure it is fully trained. Also, keep your accessories and jewelry hidden from its curious eyes. If there are mothballs lying around, hide them from your pet as they can be very dangerous.


Kitchen

The obvious problem here is of course, the food. You can’t stop a hungry pup from sniffing out the delicious food you store in the kitchen. What you can do is to install a gate to prevent your dog from entering. This is especially handy when you’re cooking. You may also want to keep your knives in a place where your dog cannot reach. Use childproof latches for your drawers, in case your smart pup tries to pry them open.


Bathroom

There are lot of potential hazards here so you should opt to keep your dog away from the bathroom entirely. You wouldn’t want it to accidentally consume your laundry detergents or fabric cleansers. In case your dog wanders into the bathroom accidentally, stay on the safe side on keep everything out of harm’s way. Your furry pal may also chew on and potentially swallow your towels, which will lead to serious gastrointestinal problems so consider hanging them in a higher area as well.


Garage

Install high shelves for your chemicals or place them behind secure doors. Your toolboxes should also be kept in a spot where your pup can’t discover them.


Once you take note of all these tips and create a dog-friendly environment, it will be all smiles and happy slobbers from there.
