Make your home a safe environment for your new puppy. Here are some of our helpful tips and products:
Poochie bells: hang this bell at the main entrance that your puppy will use for potty training. Show your puppy how to ring the bell each time that you make a trip to their regulated bathroom space. This is a great way for your puppy to let you know that they need to go out!
Stain and odour remover: when accidents happen, make sure you clean and de-odourize to discourage your puppy from using the same spot again.
Backyard containment: please make sure your pet has a safe and enclosed area to play off leash. Off leash play is essential for the proper development of a growing dog's muscles and joints. Add and rotate toys in your dog’s play area to keep them happy and stimulated.
Pet gates: a great idea for sectioning off the puppy-proofed areas of your home. This helps the potty and house training of your pet by allowing for consistent supervision so that good puppy behaviour can be reinforced.
Exercise Pen; our favourite exercise pen (and gates) are made by Richell. They are heavier than most exercise pen and will keep your puppy safe, while still keeping your home stylish!
Waist Leash: for open concept homes, you may want to try using a waist leash to keep your puppy with you or to tether them in a chosen location to build independence. We love our multi-functional Smoochy Poochy waist leashes!
