Puppy Proofing Your Home

If you’re thinking of getting a puppy, spring is a great time to do it. You’ve got plenty of warm weather and sunshine to get outside with your new furry friend. Plus, the spring allows for better socialization because they’re more likely to be out and about with other puppy friends. This makes them better behaved in the long run.
