Pet-Proof Your Home

By: The Humane Society of Greater Dayton

You’ve heard of baby proofing your home, but how about pet-proofing? Animals can be naturally curious and typically want to explore areas where they should not go in your home.

When pet-proofing your home get down to your pet’s level. When you are on your hands and knees you will have a better view of your house from your pet’s perspective. You may find cords that you thought were tucked away but peek through behind a couch or an area where your vacuum can’t reach but your pet can.

With this in mind look around your house and take notes of areas that could be dangerous to your animal or that need to be changed to better protect them from harm. Here are just a few tips on how to protect your pets in some of the common areas within your house.

Living Room/Family Room

Kitchen

Bathroom

Bedroom

Garage

With just a few adjustments to your regular routines, you and your pets can feel safer and happier in your home.
