Reading Time: 2 minutes

You come home to your beautiful apartment and your shoes are chewed up, the carpet is smelly and wet, and the brand new curtains are ruined. Living in a luxury apartment with a new puppy can be a challenge. Training new puppies isn’t impossible, but it is definitely requires some work. You are already considering Miami apartments for rent or Minneapolis apartments for rent and now you have to worry about training your puppy in a new environment. Using these tips on how to “puppy-proof” your apartment, you will come to realize that puppies and apartments can mix!

Puppy-proofing your apartment home
Puppy-proofing your apartment home

• Put your shoes out of reach
• Install baby gates to keep the puppy out of rooms you don’t want it to be in
• Keep your garbage locked up or off the floor
• Remove tablecloths; a quick pull on these can bring everything down from the table
• Remove throw rugs that have fringes
• Use anti-chew spray on furniture to keep the puppy from chewing on them
• Run electrical cords under the carpet or behind furniture or where possible to keep them out of reach

Investigate your apartment thoroughly. Many things that you wouldn’t notice could cause serious injury, or fatal, if your puppy gets to it and starts chewing. It pays off to spend some time puppy proofing your apartment.
