It has no name yet so when my sister asked me what’s going to be her name I immediately answered “Gwiyomi”  as it the new trend of music and I think the name fits to her.

How To Puppy Proof Your Home

When you get a new puppy there are some temporary and some permanent changes that you will need to make to your home. Although puppies are not people, they are family members that you will be sharing your home with, therefore they need to be accommodated . Here are a few ways to puppy proof your home, protect your things, and your new puppy.

 Their own space

Puppies are fun, cute, and exciting. When getting a new puppy, one of the first adjustments you will need to make to your home is creating a space for them. Letting a new puppy run free all over the house is like asking that puppy to poop on and chew up everything. If you choose to crate train your new puppy make a space in an area with a lot of traffic to put the crate. This way your puppy will not feel alone but still confined to their crate. Putting up a puppy run or play pin is an alternative to a crate. If you are going to have a room where your puppy is free to run around make sure that it is safe for them and there is no way that they can get out.

Puppies

 Pick up

When getting a new puppy breaking the habit of  leaving things in the floor is one of the hardest things to do. This is also one of the fastest ways to endanger your new puppy. If you have ever been around a puppy you know that they eat absolutely everything is sight. Make sure to never leave and kind of food or food crumbs in the floor. If you have children this might result in only eating in the kitchen to prevent any crumbs or food in the floor. Getting in the habit of not leaving anything on the floor you don’t want the puppy to chew up is a must. Picking up also includes anything you don’t want the puppy to have an accident on including rugs. Puppies are not potty trained right away and will have accidents at first before they learn better.

Cleaners

Be careful when using house hold cleaners around areas where the puppy has access too. You might want to look into buying all natural cleans just to be safe. If your puppy comes in contact with a toxic house hold cleaner is can make them very sick. When using cleaners make sure they are all the way wiped up. Going back after with water and a wash rag will prevent any residue that your puppy could inhale or lick up. This is only to prevent your puppy for getting sick and help them have a long happy life.

Security System

Unfortunately most security system alarms will be triggered by a pet’s movement within the house, this can turn into a real pain and annoyance. To prevent this issue I chose Smith Monitoring a New Braunfel home security company, as my home security provider because their systems are so advanced that pets do not trip the alarms in the house. This has saved me from tons of scares and inconveniences.

Kabang was brought to the US for treatment and surgery. Doctors at the University of California operated on Kabang’s wounds, and treated her for a tumor and heart worm but the doctor’s cannot reconstruct her face anymore so they took skin grafts from her cheeks, forehead and neck to cover up sensitive areas on her face. The good news despite this ordeal Kabang can still chew her food using her two remaining molars and can even use his sense of smell to recognized people around her.

Be a Responsible Pet Owner

The two dogs of our next door neighbor are unbearable these days, they barked so much that it is hard to sleep at night or in the morning.  The dogs was already moved to new apartment when my husband complain to the owner that they barked too much but dunno what happened why they were return next door, what we are thinking is the next door neighbor of the dogs to the other apartment also complain about their excessive barking.

Just the other day my husband was annoyed for not having proper sleep before going to his work so when he passed on the next door neighbor and the dogs started barking again he shout to the dogs to stop and slam the door without knowing if the owner was there or not, as she is always not at home leaving the dogs alone in her apartment.

Cute Puppies
Responsible ownership doesn’t only means having the dog and giving them food to eat,  the owner should be responsible enough to take care of them when needed and not just leave them alone inside her apartment when she is not around most of the time.  She should not owned a dog when she has no time to pet or train them to stop barking excessively during wee hours. She should walk her pet daily,  make time to play with them and socialized them with other pets or human so they will not barked in just simple noise from the outside.

Affordable Dog Clothes

Dog clothes is not somehow popular in our city probably because only those who can afford buy clothes for their dog from pet stores. Mostly dog wearing clothes can be normally seen on movies and televisions, my mother and sister wanted Jihoo to be in fashion and trend like those dogs so  they find alternative way for him that won’t cost a lot or cut our budget. What they do is they bought baby clothes in a thrift store and voila Jihoo has its own clothes that he could wear anytime of the day, the clothes they bought in a thrift store is costly as low as P5.00 or  $0.11.

Well you should know that dog clothes can protect your dog from scratches, cuts and bad weather. Clothes can help them dry and warm during cold season. If you want your dog to be in fashion but no budget for it visit a thrift store in your place where you can find affordable small clothes that could fit your dog.
