With a study that shows dogs as being the most common household pet in Australia, it comes as no shock that some people let their pups live indoors. However, it's important to keep in mind that common household items can mask as hidden dangers for your dog. So, whether you have a dachshund who heads straight for the kitchen, or a golden retriever who loves your living room, it's always a good idea to puppy proof your home.
You’re eating a meal and your dog starts acting up. Whining in a high-pitched voice and with wide eyes. At first, you think the begging is cute, but the behavior quickly becomes unpleasant. You can’t eat at a table or snack during a movie without your dog hounding you for food. Every time you cook, your furry companion storms into the kitchen and follows your every movement.
This question can be hard to answer, especially if you’re not familiar with the dietary requirements of a dachshund.
