As much as it is exciting to get a pet, you must not forget that taking care of pets requires a lot of time and effort. You have to make your house pet-friendly for your pet so it could feel at home too. Below are some of the ways you can do that:
* keep your houseplants away from the reach of your pet. Animals play around and put everything in their mouths. Your plants could be the most easy victims. While they have tendency to destroy your plants, some plants also have toxic traits which will badly affect your pet’s health. It is better to put your plants over shelves to keep them away.
* Your pet is like your child who needs constant care and attention. Since they are playful, it is better to use child locks. You can get them installed in cupboards, kitchen cabinets and drawers. These locks will keep both your pet as well as your belongings safe and sound.
* Since they chew on everything, use sprays that are anti-chew or non-toxic, to keep your dog away from nibbling your furniture due to the unpleasant smell.
* All the products that we use for house cleaning are toxic. Such as surface cleaner, toilet cleaner, sprays and bleach. To be on safe side, it is your responsibility to hide these products away.
* Of course, you cannot simply transform your house and make it glass-free but the least you could do is to change the placement of your glass objects so these are not in way of your pet.
* Lose electric wire are dangerous for both human and animals. Your pet is especially vulnerable to them. You must ensure that there are no open wire hanging lose in your house. Get safe electric wiring.
Instead of being harsh on your pet to learn new things, it is better to make your home pet-friendly and save yourself from the trouble.
