When any family gets a puppy it is always a big thing. They are another member of the family and they have to be taken care of just like anyone else. They are essentially another child and they need to be treated just like one. Puppies are curious and rambunctious and they have the slightest cares in the world. They only want to be loved and they want to roam their surroundings and they definitely want to be where their masters are. For the hard working man in the family who likes to do work in the garage, when it comes to having a puppy you always want to make sure that you keep the puppy away from any air compressors. The following is a small look at why you should always keep a puppy away from any air compressor.
All air compressors have a hose that extends from them. This allows for a person to be able to put air in what ever they are trying to pump up. This compressed air also helps for powering certain power tools as well. There are times when the hose will whip around with the air compressor on because of the built up pressure in the hose. If a puppy is standing near the compressor, the hose can whip and hit them. These hoses usually have metal attachments on them plus they could have things such as an air chuck still attached to it. This could whip and hit the puppy injure it pretty badly. The tools could be hard to take off the hose and accidentally pop off and hit the puppy as well.
Some people have air compressors that could have unsteady bases on them. If a puppy is curiously playing around the air compressor and decides to jump on it, the air compressor could tip over and fall on them. Even a small air compressor could have enough weight to it that if it fell on the puppy it could seriously hurt it and in very worse cases could turn out to be fatal.
Air compressors are big and they have compressed air in them. Any kind of malfunction in the compressor could mean very bad things, not just for a puppy but for any humans. The best thing to do is be vigilant in making sure that a puppy is no where near an air compressor when it is operating or even when it is not operating. Accidents can happen at any minute and they can happen so fast that there would not be any time to prevent a disaster. The best advice is to take heed and to simply keep your puppy away from air compressors. This way you will not have to worry about any accidents happening at all.
