Thinking of taking your dog with you to the fireworks on July 4th? Not a good idea according to the experts. It is much safer to keep your dog inside and away from fireworks and loud noises
Do not leave pets outside. Loud noises can startle animals, causing them to jump fences or flee. Many pets end up lost or missing when left outside on the Fourth of July
As our dog Josie can attest, the loud booms and flashing lights of fireworks that accompany the July 4 holiday can terrify some pets.
Josie hides under the desk in our office, just like he does during thunderstorms.
