Fourth of July Showdown: Dogs vs. Fireworks

Picture this: your dog is going absolutely crazy barking, running and panting around the house. Or, your pup is cowering under the bed and yelping. Many dogs hate fireworks because they’re loud and threatening, unpredictable and they make dogs feel trapped. But, with a few tricks and some preparation, your dog will be ready to celebrate the Fourth with the rest of us. That being said, if your dog has severe anxiety with fireworks (or thunder), and may pose a threat to themselves, please contact your vet for their advice.
