10 Tips to Help Your Dog Cope with Fireworks- 4th of July Edition
Fireworks shows and spectacles might seem like an amazing and fun way to spend the 4th of July with family and friends, but our furry four-legged pals don’t always see it that way. If you are like me I dread this time of year along with New Years Eve and other holidays where fireworks are set off both by professional companies and the local kids. Both of my pups are not fans of fireworks and I know some of my dog friends even have pups that act as if the world is ending and they end up cowering in the closet under some dirty laundry or even try to escape the house through a sliding glass door. In fact, more dogs go missing on the 4th of July than any other day of the year due to fear caused by fireworks. It is important to remember that what might sound distant is actually much louder for our dogs and so they have every right to be frightened. Plus, they have no way of understanding what the strange and loud noises are. But fret not because here are a few tips to help keep your pups calm and safe during this 4th of July holiday.
