It is the season many puppy parents dread. The loud booms, bangs and screeches that many and most fireworks put off can scare even the most typically docile pooches. Keep a few safety tips in mind.
-Keep your dogs in doors! If they are comfortable and conditioned to use a crate it's another great way to keep them calm. Play classical music and offer safe and healthy chews and/or treats.
-Puppies should be allowed to experience a subtle version of the season's noises. If encouraged to keep calm through the sounds now, they will be less likely to develop fear in the future.
-If your dog needs to be outside make sure the yard and/or collar leash is 100% secured. Supervise your dog so that if he/she does get freaked out enough to break off their collar or jump the fence you can be there to quickly save the day.
