We usually think about baby proofing homes, but what about pet proofing? Pets are curious too, often leading them to get into trouble. When you decide to bring an animal home, they’ll need a safe environment — and you’ll need to keep them out of your stuff! Here are some hints for pet proofing your home.
1. In the Living Room
Make sure any houseplants are 1) non-poisonous and 2) out of reach. Ensure any floor vents are properly covered, and that power cords or cables are unaccessible to curious paws. If you have breakable decor, make sure things are secure enough that they can’t be knocked over. If you have small kids’ toys or games with small pieces, dogs and cats can also choke on them if they get are left lying around.
