If you expect your puppy to come with an automatic be-good-button, you might want to consider a goldfish. If you aren’t sure, try researching online. So here are a few basic tips about preparation for you puppy.
Rearranging your home is the first stage. Puppies will get into anything and everything that they can reach.You don’t want anything that is plush or cloth near the floor. Your darling new puppy will chew anything within reach. Also move any power cords up off of the floor – they are very dangerous for puppy.
If you have any anti-pest products, make sure you put them all away and clean up any residue. Like all dogs, your puppy has a super sniffer! On top of being able to find anything that smells, they tend to eat whatever it is too. They’ll probably find things that you never knew were there, so check around under all of your furniture before your puppy arrives.
Another option is to make puppy safe zone. If you don’t want to move all of your furniture around, just make one area into a puppy safe zone. Close it off with a baby fence, but make sure to spend enoug time with your puppy.
