that your home is made puppy safe before you bring him/her home:
Don't leave plants on the floor where the puppy can reach
them as most house plants are poisonous.
Raise all loose cables off the ground as this could
become dangerous chew toys.
your way through your home, room for room and identify possible hazards to the
new puppy that needs to be addressed before he/she arrives.

children (unsupervised that is).
children play with the pup they should be sitting flat on the
Don't get the puppy over excited, everyone will want to

litter mates and this combined with the new environment could prove very
daunting at first.

toys - again choose wisely..... watchout for any chew toy were small pieces
could be broken off and cause a choking hazard (remember that poms are very
small and extra care should be taken in this area) - Poms generally love pig
ears and hooves - just remember to disgard any small
