Ensuring your home is safe for your new dog is easy and just takes a few simple steps.
Familiarize yourself with Common Dangerous/Poisonous Household Items such as poisonous plants, plastic bags, certain foods and chemical cleaners.
Be sure to check labels for dangerous ingredients. If you have a puppy, make sure valuables and small items the puppy could get into are off the floor.
The ASPCA Poison Control Hotline (888-426-4435) can provide additional information about household chemicals and plants that can be harmful to your pets.
