Curious dogs and puppies like to chew as they explore and learn about their world. Chewing on cords can cause life-threatening electrocution.
To prevent electrocution, keep all electric cords in a safe area and away from your curious dog or puppy.
Periodic checks of electric cords for teeth marks can alert you to a potential problem. If you find teeth marks on electric cords, unplug the cord and have it replaced.
