Dogs are clever and they are fantastic athletes. Make sure all gates, doors and fencing are in good working order. Repair and secure all before you bring your new Dog home.
Dogs have been known to open gate latches. Secure with clip locks. Dogs can let themselves out of yards if a fence is in disrepair or has low or weak spots. You do not want your new Dog lost or injured before they become accustomed to your home. Do a thorough once over to make sure your Airedale will be safe and secure in your home & yard.
