“Keep Out Of Reach Of Pets”: Survey your home for any off-limit items that may be accessible to your pet.  Move them to a higher location that will be out of their reach.

“Practice Makes Perfect”: Now is the perfect time to brush up on some of those obedience rules you learned but were never quite dedicated to using! 

“Pet Zone”: Designate an area of the home for your pet and fill it with a comfortable bed and some toys to keep them entertained. 

“No Means No”: Make sure you alert your guests that feeding your pet is off limits! And when they stare at you with those puppy-dog eyes, say “no” and look away!

“Accidents Happen”: Despite all your efforts, pets just have a knack for finding and consuming items that are off-limits. Accidents happen! Immediately noticing a change in your pet is key.  If they seem to be acting unusual, get them checked out.  It’s better to be safe, than sorry!
