Does Your Dog Get Anxious During
Fireworks? Here are 7 ways to help calm your dog or other pet.
July 4 is a celebration of our Nation's
Freedom, and the festivities almost always include fireworks. Fun for
people, but not so much for our animal companions. Fear and anxiety
can set in. So what is a caring pet owner to do?
1) Do not take your dog to fireworks
displays. This is just too much for most dogs and you don't want a
frantic pet while you are trying to enjoy yourself. You could also
traumatize your pet by putting him in this kind of situation.
Your Dog Ran Off, Now What?
You know that
feeling when your dog is not where he is supposed to be? In your yard
or home? Or maybe you (or someone else) opened the door and your dog
darted through. Or what if you find a loose dog without tags? Do you
know what to do?
Steps to Take
are some of the steps you should take if your dog has run off? First,
time is of the essence! The first several hours are the most
critical in a dog search. But even if your dog has been missing for
weeks or months, do not give up hope.
