How to puppy-proof your home

A little clumsy puppy is curious and is not yet able to correctly judge what is dangerous. It is therefore particularly important that you take a few precautions before your puppy moves in so that your new pet can move around freely and untroubled in its new home.

Puppy-proof home

  • Hide away poisonous substances: Put cleaning products, medicines, chocolate and poisonous houseplants in places where your puppy is not able to reach them.


  • Remove safety hazards: Remove sharp or fragile objects and electrical wires which your puppy could nibble on or knock over.


  • Secure bins: Ensure that your puppy does not choke on or get injured by its contents.


  • Block stairs and doors: Use baby gates or other barriers to block off stairs and rooms which you don’t want your puppy to enter.


  • Protect furniture: Use protective devices to prevent your puppy from nibbling on or scratching furniture.


  • Check windows: Make sure that windows are properly closed and secured so that your puppy is not able to fall out or run away.

The right nutrition for your puppy

Which food is best for your puppy depends on its origin, possible pre-existing conditions, its expected growth, its appetite and the feeding options available. Above all, it is important that the food covers all the necessary nutrients, is well tolerated and is eaten with pleasure.

Puppy food: What’s important

  • It contains all of the important nutrients and minerals for development.
  • High-quality proteins, fats and carbohydrates are present in balanced quantities.
  • The food is free from artificial colourings, flavourings and preservatives and does not contain any unnecessary fillers.
  • It is highly digestible and accepted by your puppy.
