Here are some things you can do to protect your pets from harm.
Avoid letting your pets near grow lights: Keep your grow lights in a room that can be closed off from the rest of the house if you have the space to do so. By doing this, you can be confident that your dogs won’t tamper with the lights or hang around underneath them.
Watch out for your pets: If you can’t keep your pets away from the grow lights, it’s a good idea to keep an eye on them and shoo them away from the area.
Put a stop to your pet’s fascination with the grow lights: Try removing your pet from the room or sprinkling them with water to get them to hang out somewhere else if you find they constantly head near the lights.
Grow lights should never be turned on 24/7: To prevent negative impacts on you or your pets, grow lights should only be used for 6 to 8 hours a day.
Cords for grow lights should be out of reach: Pets can easily damage themselves by getting caught in cables.
Pets should not be brought into your growing space with you. It’s not a good idea to even briefly expose your pets to the light.
Provide alternate warm areas: Giving your pets a cozy area to rest can discourage them from attempting to huddle under your grow lights.
Put grow lights in a place with less traffic: It’s ideal to put your grow lights someplace your dogs won’t frequent if you don’t have a separate area for them.
