Prepare for all Possibilities with Your Dog this Fourth of July

The evening of July Fourth and the day after are often the busiest times of the year for animal control officers and the shelters. Having your dog bolt into the night is pretty frightening to the owner, and it can be very dangerous for the dogs, which can become injured trying to get away. Frightened dogs also are more likely to run into traffic, where they can be injured or killed. If you decide to take your pal out for fun festivities, be sure your dog has a sturdy collar, a heavy-duty red, white, and blue patriotic dog leash, and a strong clasp to prevent escaping.

Tips for Keeping Your Pets Safe on the Fourth of July

A lot of the time we run into two types of dogs. Dogs that battle anxiety and become scared—breaking through fences and gates, becoming lost, and brought into shelters as strays— and dogs that get so excited—chasing fireworks, resulting in the possibility of fence damage, ripped leashes, and broken chains. Part of being a responsible pet owner is to make sure your pets are safe and secure on the Fourth of July. Here are tips for keeping your dog safe during your Fourth of July celebrations:

  • Make certain pets are wearing identification, including the name and current telephone number of the owner. Confirm your pet’s microchip registration information is registered or updated.
  • If your pet is easily scared, startled, or battles anxiety, think about keeping them inside during the fireworks presentations.  
  • Do not spray pets with insect repellent or sunscreen that is intended for humans. These products can be extremely irritating to your dog’s stomach, lungs and central nervous system if ingested.
  • Keep pets away from alcohol, flames, matches, and lighter fluid.
  • Make sure your dog has durable equipment: Sturdy collar, heavy duty leash, and a strong clasp, preventing destruction.

Before you throw your first burger on the grill or toss another shrimp on the barbie, be sure to take a few minutes to provide additional measures of safety and comfort for your pet on this holiday weekend.
