Who left the dog(s)out? All pets, whether a dog, a kitty, or some exotic pet, are precious and make a wonderful addition to the household energy. These lovely family members like to experiment, and anything within reach seems like an interesting snack or curious texture to sample. Some learn the lesson early, and some are persistent in their endeavors. After all, pet etiquette differs from ours; they like offering a chewed-up sock or a damaged cable as a friendly token. Although cute, it’s costly and tiring.

Pet-proofing can help prevent these little mishaps while keeping the space and freedom for pets to roam. For those interested, keep scrolling for more compliments on pets and solutions on the side.

Why Should You Pet-proof Your Tech Devices

Precious little furry friends, these angels can be mischievous, and as much as we love to see them go about their quirky habits, we fear for our stuff and worry more for them. Apparently, dogs and cats have a taste for cables, and to be fair, they do make it look delicious and fun. Nevertheless, curiosity killed the cat – God forbid – so in case you’re wondering what to do and what to buy, check out these tips for quick fixes.

Tips For Protecting Your Pets

Don’t make your pet an excuse for some extra shopping; replacing equipment constantly isn’t a solution. Pet-proofing spares the accidents and builds an extra pocket change for a little splurge. If you already have a little fur baby or maybe an exotic iguana, or you’re considering adopting one, here are some ideas for pet-proofing equipment.

Screen protectors and cases

Those tiny paws bring some mean scratches; a pet-proof material screen protection is like a tiny block; it’s made from polyester film and has a matte coating to make it scratch-resistant. It applies to screens easily, and if your dog or cat has the curious case of zoomies or your cat is going through the usual “watch me throw this,” it’s made to absorb the impact and prevent breaking.

Cable management

Cabinets, couches, and sturdy objects make the perfect place for tucking cords and cables away from pets. The perfect barrier can be a lovely bookcase under the dresser, but never behind a TV screen; those flat objects can easily fall over. However, small pets can get away unnoticed in small crevices and spaces, making this option invalid. “Up, up, and away” – lifting the cords off the floor and attaching them to wall mounts or using simple duct tape or adhesive keeps cords out of reach. Pets can’t hurt what they can’t reach. Leaving a random wire is a hazard; pets are likely to chew on these cables, so consider tying them before tucking them away or placing them under the rug.

Use of Wireless Technology Where Possible

It’s important to consider functionality; if moving cables and restructuring furniture seems like a hassle, then we agree. That’s why a simple yet savvy solution exists: wireless charging stations. They can alleviate the trouble of figuring out how to shift things, keeping pets and individuals happy. These stations also have a hidden benefit: typically, chargers are left overnight, which may damage the device, cause it to heat, and decrease battery life. A wireless station does the trick effortlessly.  Of course you’re balancing wireless which lets off EMF vs wired which also lets out EMF. There a various EMF balancing products to help if you’re concerned about EMF pollution on you and your pet.

Reinforcing devices

A determined pet will find access, so all that tucking and hiding may not prove beneficial. Consider a cord protector; they keep the room clean and tidy, lessening the chances of tripping over cables and preventing a pet from tearing them apart.

Training and Supervision

It’s important to create a space for pets to act freely; however, addressing their behavioral aspects can be fun. Teaching pets to communicate can be a great bonding opportunity and create a healthy and safe environment. “Sit” and “Stay” are two key commands for a calm little doggy, but what about other pets? Apparently, rabbits, ferrets, and cats can be trained too. A simple vocal gesture and reward system work well. Professional help can save time, effort, and stress too.

When everything is well and pet-proofed, life is fun and dandy, so try it.
