Fireworks-Keeping Your Dog Calm

                                                    
                      Tips for Keeping Your Dog Calm During Fireworks

1) Keep your dog indoors-under supervision in case they get scared

2) Have a safe spot in your home for them to go to such as a kennel, crate or even under a bed.

3) Keep windows, blinds, curtains closed so they will not see bright flashing lights and will help to diffuse the noise.

4) Stay calm, dogs pick up our energy, body language and tone of voice. Using soothing words will help reduce their anxiety.

5) Take your dog for a long walk, to the dog park or play fetch before fireworks begin.  A tired dog is calmer and less anxious

6) Give them a special treat before the fireworks, something they can chew on for long periods of time. This helps keep their minds occupied, with less focus on the noise.

7) An empty stomach can create more stress, let them eat and drink before all the noise starts .

8) Talk to your veterinarian about calming supplements or medication that could help reduce the fear and anxiety during this time.

 

                                          Happy and Safe July 4th!

I have loved animals since I was a small child. My father was allergic to all cats and dogs,so hard as it was for me, we could not have any pets. Once I was on my own, I adopted cats and dogs I found on the streets of Atlanta. Some I adopted from a shelter,but mostly I found them. My love for four legged friends continues to grow. I truly love seeking out not only new products that make their life better,but also learning more about them and best ways to care and keep them healthy and happy!
