Independence Day is coming up, and although it is a special and wonderful holiday, it is often no picnic for our pets. Keep a close eye on your pet during parties or gatherings where guests may come in and out of your house.
A few tips for nervous fur friends:
-Drown out the sounds of fireworks. Turn on the radio, TV or fan.
-Keep your pet busy. Offer a toy that he or she hasn’t seen in a while. Get out the treats.
-Act enthusiastic. Our attitudes are infectious to dogs.
-Create a safe and quiet place. Closets and crates are great, but tubs and beds (underneath) are fine too.
