How To Manage a Renovation Project With A Pup


If you are preparing to undergo a renovation project at home, there are plenty of steps that you need to take and lots of factors to consider. When creating your plan, don’t forget to include your pup. Having a dog present at home an additional layer that you need to prepare for, and here are a few things that can help you manage the process safely and stress-free.


Doggie Daycare
If you can, consider enrolling your pup in dog daycare Jacksonville during the renovation project. Not only can this provide them with socialization and consistent care, but this can remove them from an active construction site. This can reduce their stress and yours, reducing their risk of injury or harm.

Construction Workers in Your Home
If your contractor and their team will be spending time in your house before or during the project, you should consider making introductions to the workers. Dogs are territorial creatures and the reality is that they may feel threatened. The introductions can reduce the likelihood of feeling stressed about new visitors in the home and show your pup that these people are safe.


Safety First
Living in an active construction site, even when it is confined to one area of your home can present safety issues. You need to make sure that safety always comes first. Securely stowing away equipment, small parts and toxins can help ensure that your family members and canine companions aren’t exposed to harmful items throughout the renovation.

Spend Time Outside
Regardless of whether you are using professional assistance or you have your pup at home, take time to get outside. Not only can this reduce your stress levels, but it can help separate you and your dog from potential risks and the tension of the commotion.

If you are going to remodel your home, you need to consider your dog’s needs. Make sure that they are a part of your planning process to keep everyone safe, happy and healthy and you will be glad that you took that extra step.
