As you may have guessed from our latest ad “Somebody to Love”, at Coldwell Banker we truly believe that a pet makes a house a home. Because our pets are so important to us, ensuring they are safe is crucial. The company reached out to our friends at HomeAdvisor to see if they had any tips to do so, and as usual they came through with paw-sitively awesome advice.
When pet-proofing one’s home and yard, it is important to look at items from a pet’s standpoint and consider what things they are likely to play with, chew, or otherwise get into.
