Bringing A Puppy Home? Rent A Storage Unit For A Few Months
After getting settled into your home, you may decide that you are ready to bring home a puppy. At the same time, you may know that bringing one into your home might cause problems. If you want to keep these problems from happening, you should rent a storage unit for several months.
While decorations that are on the wall or high up on shelves in your home should not be a problem for a puppy, you may have other decorations that are accessible to your puppy. Although you may intend on training your puppy to not go on any desks or tables where they could knock over decorations, you should not rely on this being successful in the beginning.
A much better solution is to rent a storage unit and put all your delicate decorations into storage as this will eliminate the possibility for them to get damaged or destroyed. Over time, you can start to bring decorations back into your home as you feel more confident in your puppy.
Although you may not want to move any furniture out of your home after getting settled in by making all the right additions and purchases, you should consider protecting your delicate furniture. This means taking upholstered furniture that you know would be hard to clean if your puppy were to have an accident and putting it into storage until you train your puppy well.
Once you know that your puppy is housetrained, you may feel confident enough to bring any furniture pieces back into the home, knowing that their likelihood of getting damaged is reduced.
However, upholstered furniture is not the only thing that you should pay attention to before bringing a puppy home. Even items such as couch covers, pillows, and blankets may be worth putting away when they are made of delicate fabric or are light in color.
Rugs can provide a functional purpose in your home with a puppy by protecting your floor from damage after an accident from your puppy. But, you may have a rug or two that you deem extra valuable and that you want to do everything you can to avoid the chance of damage. This makes it worth cleaning the rug, using a rug storage bag, and putting the rug into storage for a while.
Renting a storage unit at a facility like Freeport West will make it easier to bring a puppy home with confidence.
