Mistake #2 – Not Making Your Home Safe
If there isn’t already a dog in your home, you’ll have to doggie-proof your house before your pet arrives, which will keep both your furry friend and your belongings safe. It’s necessary both for curious puppies who chew a lot and for grown dogs who don’t yet know what you expect in your house and it’s especially necessary for dogs who haven’t been kept indoors a lot yet.
A grown dog might not think to gnaw on your kitchen chair legs, your shoes, or your trash, you can’t tell until she comes home with you. It’s wisest to dog-proof your home in case she does. In addition, you’ll require things to give your dog exercise and entertainment as well as to keep her healthy. That’s the fun part if you like to shop.
