How To Make Your Home
Puppy-Friendly For Your New Pit Bull
Before you bring home your new Pit
Bull, you should already have the necessary preparations made in order
for your new puppy to feel safe and comfortable. The more prepared you
are before he arrives, the better your chances are of ensuring his
safety and in saving your home from destruction once your puppy gets
used to it.
Since your new Pit Bull puppy is naturally inquisitive, he will be
fascinated by anything and everything around your house. Without proper
preparation, your cute puppy will start chewing and playing with
whatever he can sink his teeth into.
You might need to do some home improvement tasks to make sure that your
home is safe enough for your new playful pup. Make sure that the whole
family knows about the safety efforts. Inform them about the terrible
result that can happen to your puppy should they become careless.
Everyplace where your Pit Bull may wander must be puppy friendly. You
may want to crawl around on the ground at puppy level to see what kind
of trouble awaits him. In addition to making your home puppy-friendly
for your new Pit Bull, you need to be alert to the following factors:
1. One of your puppy’s favorite hobbies is chewing. If given the
opportunity, he will chomp on electrical cords and lick electrical
outlets. This exploration can result in death from severe burns, shock,
and loss of jaw and tongue tissue. Your pup can also pull electrical
appliances down by pulling the cords or pulling over heavy and unstable
objects that can fall down on him.
2. Stairs, balconies, and high decks are hazard spots. You may use
temporary plastic fencing, baby gates, or even chicken wire if
necessary, to keep the puppy from entering these areas.
3. Keep your floor clean and free of anything that your puppy can
easily put in his mouth. Keep all forms of cleaners, chemicals,
strings, coins, and other small objects out of his sight.
4. Invest in a good fence for your yard to prevent your puppy from
roaming outside the property. Check your yard for any sharp and broken
branches within your puppy’s reach. If you have a pool, show your dog
how to find the steps where he can get out.
5. Doors can be a very dangerous area for your puppy. Everyone in your
family should be made aware of the danger of slamming the door where
the puppy may be in the way. Attach stickers to your glass doors at
puppy eye level to prevent him from running into it. Finally, every
door that leads to unfenced outdoor areas must be kept securely shut.
