Puppy Proofing

Proofing your home for your Labradoodle Puppy

Before you pick up your Labradoodle Puppy it would be a good idea to “puppy proof” your home to make it safe and eliminate any potentially harmful items. Puppies love to pick up anything that is on the floor or maybe tucked away under your bed. Labradoodle Puppies are so smart and have a great sense of smell. You will need to keep a careful watch at all times, even once your puppy grows up.  When it comes to Labradoodle Puppy Proofing, I have been accumulating a Puppy-Proofing list as follows:
