15 years ago when I was a first time dog owner I had no idea of just how badly my Rottweiler would react to 4th of July festivities. The loud noises frightened her and when I got home the parts of the house looked like it had been ransacked. Poor thing was scared and I found her nestled in a corner of my bedroom. She even moved my mattress off the box springs.
I have since taken the proper precautions.
Here are a few things you can do to help your dog feel less frightened and keep them safe during the 4th of July.
- Have calm music playing
- Put a compression jacket on your dog
- If they are kennel trained keep them in their kennel
- Have someone home with your dog
- Have your dog stay at a boarding facility
