---"I want to add my praise for WiggleLegs Frog toy.  My cat loves to play with WiggleLegs No other toy will do.  When I ask her to find WiggleLegs she goes right to it!  I just ordered 3 more as I'm afraid you will stop making them and then I don't know what we will do!"

---"Once again, you have provided excellent service with an excellent product. Thanks for the extra - it was a hit! My cats are totally addicted to the WiggleLegs Frog, so please keep plenty in stock!"


---"I just wanted to let you know that my cat, Molly, is absolutely addicted to your FlyToys. I literally have to hide them from her so she will go to sleep at night, but as soon as morning arrives she is sitting right in front of their hiding place waiting for them to come out and play."

Each MetPet FlyToy is handmade by skilled artisans with great attention to detail.  They come in the form of bugs, amphibians, mammals and more in three very reasonable price points.

Puppy Proofing Your House: Indoors

Preparing ahead of time will make time with your new puppy carefree and fun

 

MetPet.com Staff Writer

Puppies are notorious for getting themselves into trouble.  They paw at everything, they mouth everything, they chew, tear and often swallow everything.  The world is their oyster and they assume it is perfectly safe and inviting.  They also assume that everything they can get hold of is theirs for the taking. 

We have put together this article for puppy proofing your home. You will want to use it well in advance of bringing your new puppy home because you may have to rearrange furniture, remove plants and tie up draperies.  You will then be free to enjoy your new puppy.

What Puppies Do
Here are the amusing activities that puppies typically engage in from the day you bring them home.

Claw, Shred and Tear
Chew
Ingest
Dig
Tip, Open, Pull and Remove
Wet and Soil
Escape

If you print out this page and examine your house against this list, you can see how easy it is for your puppy to get into trouble.  Here are some examples of what your new puppy may be after.

Claw, Shred and Tear newspapers and magazines, upholstery, homework (which may be a good thing), screens, audio speakers, doors, cabinets, drywall, wallpaper and woodwork.

Chew wicker and wood furniture, baskets, books, electrical cords, dolls and stuffed animals, socks and shoes, purses and briefcases, tassels and fringe.

Ingest pins and tacks, household cleaners, vinyl and plastic, bits of fabric, pantyhose, children's toys, cat toys, aluminum foil, food. 

Dig houseplants, cat litter box, bedding and rugs.

Tip, Open, Pull and Remove trash cans, laundry bins, grocery bags, household decorations, bags of kibble.

Wet and Soil carpeting, rugs, couches and chairs, floor cushions, beanbags, newspapers and magazines.

Escape out of the house or yard and into the street usually by digging underneath a fence or slipping through an open door or window.

Once you identify which parts of your house may be appealing to your puppy's destructive habits, you can think about sectioning your house with doors and gates.  You can then move furniture and items temporarily to other rooms, place them out of reach or protect them.
