Make the Garage Safe

Many dog owners also allow their dogs access to the garage from the backyard. This can give the dog shelter in bad weather, especially if no one is at home. If you plan on doing this, you will need to make sure that the garage is safe.

Since you are not going to want your dog dashing in and out when the garage door opens, especially when a car is going in or out, you will want to section off a portion of the garage. You can use an X-pen, fence sections, or even pieces of lattice. Simply divide the areas where you want the puppy to be able to access and those that will be off-limits.

In the area where the dog will be allowed, put away anything that can be chewed—cardboard storage boxes, shelves with food (such as in a pantry), cleaners, insect sprays, rodent traps, laundry soaps, tools, automotive parts (especially antifreeze)—behind latched doors or up out of reach. Don't assume that something will not be chewed because it doesn't appear to be attractive to a dog; dogs have chewed on some amazing things!
