There is always a great deal of excitement for both you and your new puppy when you bring them home. The puppy is all new for you and your home is all new for the puppy. There will be certain mischievous happenings from now on but keep in mind that your puppy is all about learning and exploring at this stage and it really won’t know on automatic what it can and cannot do.

Your job as a new Mommy or Daddy to your puppy is to make the transition to your home as comfortable as possible. With that in mind, here are a few home hints to help keep puppy out of trouble and you as the new owner less stressed about having a puppy in the house.

One quirk that new puppies develop is the curiosity that takes them into every trash can in the house. It does not matter if it’s the kitchen trash with food or the bathroom trash with no food because to your puppy it is just a bin full of stuff waiting to be explored. Try either keeping the bathroom door shut or get a smaller bin to put under the counter to keep the puppy out of the bathroom trash. A bonus to keeping the bathroom door shut is that your puppy will be less likely to be enthralled by the toilet paper roll and try to eat all of it. With the kitchen trash, again try keeping that under the counter but if that is not possible then you’ll want to invest in a bin that has a snap on secured lid and not just a flip lid; the snap on lid has a better chance of keeping the curious puppy out while the flip lid has no chance at all. In regards to bedroom trash you can also use one with a secure lid or keep it above ground on a shelf high enough that puppy cannot get to.

Another and potentially deadly quirk for puppies is their almost homing like qualities when it comes to power cords. For a puppy it generally looks like a snake or a worm that doesn’t do much but if it’s moved at all or tripped over that cord suddenly becomes attack worthy. Try taping or stapling down your cords along the baseboards or better yet try using the same method up the corners of the room to keep the cords even further out of reach from the puppy. You could also try dabbing some of the bitters sprays for pets on the cords and any other area where you don’t want the puppy to be chewing.

Another potential hazard is your house plants. Puppies love to chew on fresh grass but they will also be attracted to try any other greenery around your home. Some standard house plants are not harmful to the puppy but there are some common plants that kill if ingested. Plants that are bad for your puppy are: Lily of the Valley, Rhododendron, Japanese Yew, Chinese Evergreen, Philodendron, Devil’s Ivy, Aloe Vera, English Ivy, Branching Ivy, Sago Palm, Azalea and Bird of Paradise to new a few.

For a more complete listing of plants which are harmful or poisonous talk with your vet, or research online.
