    Interior Of Home

    Check out the inside of the home. Look for signs that it’s GSP-proof and has that "lived in" look that comes from having a dog in the home. Watch for and point out: - Items that a GSP could easily destroy or break - Objects, plants or chemicals, including outdoor chemicals and fertilizers, that could cause harm to a dog if they are accessible - Accessible, open wastebaskets

    Yard and Fence

    Examine the fence and yard carefully, keeping in mind security and safety. Walk the perimeter of the yard, pushing on the fencing and gates to test. Point out any issues to the family. We can’t stress enough how important this is. GSPs are fast and clever!
