I will be getting my little pup in a little over a month and all of a sudden I can totally see everything in my apartment being a potential danger! Maybe not everything haha, but I wanted to at least revisit the idea of puppy-proofing. I have only a bit of wood furniture, but how instinctual is it for basenjis to chew on wood furniture corners or even dig up carpet? Does Bitter Apple work well as a solution or precaution to these issues? The shelves I will put child locks on, but I am mostly worried about the cables. Does anyone's basenji have a current or past issue with chewing power cables? The only solution I can think of for that is getting those chain meshes to protect the bundle of cables, duct-taping it to the floor or getting a cheap plastic tube from Home Depot or such and running the cables through there.
I saw on one of the past posts that someone suggested to run through a current basenji-owner's house and see how it is proofed, which I will do with my breeder next time I see her, but if anyone is available (and willing) to give me a quick run through in the San Francisco Bay Area it would be much appreciated!! Any notes or suggestions on proofing (any area, ,not just the aforementioned things) are greatly appreciated!! Thank you guys in advance for reading and responding
