With all the hustle and bustle of fireworks, swimming parties and barbecues, dogs can become frightened. Make sure your dog gets plenty of rest and quiet time. This is especially important when it comes to fireworks. Keep them indoors, in a safe and peaceful place. It helps fight the fearful noise of explosions, close windows and doors, or leave the TV or radio on to reduce noise.
Make sure your dog has a name tag
Make sure your dog is wearing its name tag. In case your dog is released, there will be a high chance that it will be returned to you if he has a name tag on.
Dog reactions are pretty unpredictable when it comes to firework. Yes, some dogs may be able to react well, but others may have a flight response when they hear loud noises. If your dog is frightened, it could flee. Having a tag on your dog may help you find your dog if it goes missing.
Other helpful tips include not leaving your pets alone outdoor, even if in a fenced yard. Keep small pets indoors, preferably in a room without windows. Avoid taking your pets to firework displays and never leave them alone if you know your pet is afraid of the fireworks. However, if you need to get them out, keep them on a leash.
You may need to sedate your dog to help it stay even calmer, so make sure you talk to your veterinarian ahead of time.
Follow these tips to have a smoother and more enjoyable holiday celebrations with your pet. Have a happy and safe 4thJuly.
