Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

I’m getting my dog soon, and I’m trying to doggy proof my home. I have three cabinets in particular that I’m trying to keep the dog out of.

Do you all think that these sliding cabinet locks will keep him out? Even though he’s house broken, I know I should still lock the chemicals.

Let me know what you guys do. Thanks!

Get a carabiner or 2 at any hardware store instead of plastic locks.

Make sure small items like knick knacks, shoes, remotes, etc. are always picked up. Tuck wires out of sight and behind heavy cabinets, and most of all if you are really worried about your dog being super nosey and into things, crate train and put it in the crate when you can't be with it. That frankly is the best dog proofing you can do.

I like the idea of locking the cabinets where chemicals are stored- just in case.  Crating for sure.  You can also keep the dog tethered to you when it's not in it's crate.

Start small with training by using a bedroom with just a few things in it - some the dog can play with and some it can't.  Use the leave-it command for the off-limit items and offer the correct item with praise once they take it.

Lastly, you should probably budget for new shoes, a new couch and a cabinet or two just in case. Wink
