Independence Day is a huge celebration for those of us in the United States! As much as we love to commemorate this great milestone in history, our pets do not feel the same way. 4th of July is the time of year with the most lost pet reports, all due to fireworks! Even the calmest and laziest of dogs can get spooked by the loud pops happening all around them. A scared dog in a backyard can jump the fence or dig their way out to get away from the noise! That is why we suggest you keep your furry companions safe and secure INSIDE in a comfortable windowless room or crate during the 4-5 days before and after the 4th!
