This three-day weekend includes Independence Day. It’s a day for picnics, parades, cookouts, concerts, and fireworks. The last item is what I’m going to elaborate on here.
While fireworks are fun to watch and listen to, your dog probably has a different opinion of them. Many dogs find the sound of fireworks terrifying. Some of them flee in terror and, if found, they end up in animal shelters. Others are never found.
Although Fourth of July will never be your dog’s favorite holiday, you can make things better by keeping your dog close to you. Let your dog stay in the house for the day. It’s better for your dog, and for your neighbors, who won’t have to hear your dog barking and howling in anguish.
