Get a Handle on Your Pets

Handles to pet proof your homeLincolnshire living couple, Sue and Stewart are the owners of chocolate Labrador, Rollo.  He looks sweet enough, but behind this deceptive exterior, Rollo is a living food disposal unit, eating food and its packaging that does not need disposing of!  Nine year old, Rollo, has even eaten a packet of cigarettes, a jar of mincemeat (including the glass jar) and nearly died after his suicidal attempt at bulking up on rat poison.

It started off as being mildly amusing, with Sue describing Rollo as the ‘pre-rinse cycle’ on her dishwasher because he licked every single item inside whenever she opened the door.  Then Rollo learnt how to take the lid off yoghurts without any assistance before he consumed the contents, he studied how his owners opened the kitchen doors and copied their actions with the kitchen door handles using his mouth, this even included the fridge.  This intelligent canine even worked out that if he bounced up and down on the trampoline he could knock the apples off the tree.  But something needed to be done by Stewart and Sue, as they decided after 6 years after having rescued him from Labrador Lifeline Trust, they simply could no longer handle his constant binge eating and their own starvation.

The time had come, therefore, to dog-proof the kitchen and other specific areas of the house.  This was done by adding new kitchen handles to all of the cupboards that were impossible for Rollo to use, the fridge has been equipped with a high pull handle which has, to date, been successful.  Unlike the supposedly dog-proof bin, doors with chain, stairgates, briefcase and Tupperware boxes which have all been rather the opposite.  This gigantic kitchen makeover has cost an astonishing £25,000, which, by the sound of it, is less than Rollo eats in a week!

Improving and updating your home is more important than ever, but it can sometimes be a challenge to find the right inspiration. Amongst a busy working life, and with a need to budget responsibly, you have to grasp opportunities that allow you to spruce up your home in an affordable way.

Implementing new door handles and door knobs within your home can be a fantastic way to achieve positive change. They are both features that can add plenty of character to your home; without placing a heavy weight on your bank balance in the process – it’s a no-brainer.
