4 Ways to Make Your New Puppy Feel Right at Home

Bringing a new puppy home is an exciting time for you and the puppy. To make your new addition feel right at home in its new environment, you'll need to make some preparations, take steps to assure its safety and commit to devoting time for training and for spending interactive time with your new puppy.

Preparing for the Puppy's Arrival

Before you bring a new puppy home, it's essential that you take precautionary steps to assure its safety. Danger lurks in many places for a curious little puppy. Electrical cords should be concealed in PVC pipes or wraps specifically designed for hiding cords. The cords on blinds can pose a risk of strangulation to a puppy. Toxic house plants should be placed out of the puppy's reach. Many household cleaning and grooming products are toxic to puppies. Put all toxic products in enclosed cabinets.

Outdoor Safety

You should have an enclosed outdoor space for your puppy or always take it out on a leash. There's a myriad of outdoor hazards and the possibility of a losing your puppy if you don't take steps to protect it outdoors. Some wildflowers and plants in your landscape can be toxic to pets. Some companies, like Allstate Pest Control, know that wild birds can carry bacteria that can make your puppy very sick. Taking it out on a leash is the best way to keep your puppy away from bird droppings. Inhalation or ingestion of these dropping can lead to life-threatening illness for your puppy.

Security Zone

Moving into your home is a new experience for your puppy. To make it as comfortable as possible, you need to create a retreat area for your puppy. This space should include a comfortable bed and possibly be located where your puppy can observe household activity. Puppies are playful, but they also need frequent naps. A security zone is an ideal napping space.


To help your puppy feel right at home, keep a supply of toys available for it. Durable, safe chew toys are ideal for young puppies. Be sure to dedicate some of your time to interactive play and training.

A new puppy depends on you for its safety, both indoors and outdoors. Do some research to discover the potential dangers and proper safety measures you need to be aware of before you bring your puppy home. You can enjoy years of happiness with your pet if you provide it with protection and love.
