Fourth Of July Tips For Keeping Fido Safe!

This is me heading off to bed last night, just as our city's big celebration, "Red, White & Boom" got started. I pay no mind to fireworks and for this, Parental Unit is eternally grateful.

But we know that lots of dogs are frightened by the incessant loud booms and try to escape the sound by running away—that's why animal shelters tend to have their largest intake on July 5th. The most important safety tip, then, is to keep your dogs (and cats) at home and indoors during the prime time for fireworks. And if your neighborhood is "fireworks crazy", keep your pooch under your watchful eye and leashed when outdoors. Check out these additional safety tips from the American Veterinary Medical Association to help keep your dogs safe and happy this weekend.

We think the most important tip is to have fun and to include your pets as much as possible in all your celebrations.

                     Happy Independence Day!

We are petsitting a friend's dog who is so terrified of loud sounds that he sometimes gets seizures during them. Poor, poor dog. We are hanging onto his leash very tightly when outside - he is definitely not leash-trained.

Happy 4th!

Yikes! We've never heard of a dog that frightened, KB Bear. Does this dog live in an urban area? I do not like high pitched sounds, like from a smoke alarm—I do run away from those.
