We are so lucky – they have banned the fireworks for public use again this year due to the high fire risk…they will be only be allowed in supervised public places.

I am a brave terrier, Sugar and I am not afraid of fireworks but I know many are. These are important safety tips considering that so many dogs run off and get lost on the 4th of July. Great infographic too!
We have people that cross the border into NH and bring them home. We find the AC helps with white noise. Music also helps drown out the noise. The dogs prefer first floor to second floor be it fireworks or storms.
Great info. Mauja doesn’t mind fireworks, but this will be Atka’s first experience with them. We plan to stay inside and relax with them, but you can definitely hear the fireworks from our house. We’re ready with a ThunderShirt and some yummy treats!

We have two fireworks stands not far from our home. They shot fireworks every night and Bentley HATES them! This year we have our new ThunderShirt and hope that it works as well with that noise as it does with the storms. These are all golden safety tips! ♥♥♥

Fireworks are legal here so they set them off every holiday. We don’t like the boomer seasons!

Callie, Shadow, and Ducky's Mom says
Great tips, Sugar! Callie hates the fireworks, so I always keep her on a leash outdoors on the 4th of July. And at night, I keep Ducky on a leash in the yard, too. Shadow is mellow enough that as long as her Daddy and I are outside with her and her sisters, she ignores the noise.
A couple of years ago my friend found a dog and brought her to me to care for until we could find her owner. She was scared out of her mind and obviously very tired from running scared. She had no tags and no microchip. Luckily, I found her owner through craigslist. Shiera was her name and apparently she was in the back yard with her family when the neighbor’s fireworks sent her running. She wasn’t fenced or on a leash, just hanging out, so she was gone before the family even knew it. I’m so glad she didn’t get hit by a car or hurt while on the run. And I’m so glad my friend took her in and brought her to me. 4th of July safety is very important. Thank you for sharing this information, Sugar! :0)
Katie has reserved the inside guest bathroom once again this year, it is her go to spot where she is not afraid. Bailie and I are not bothered at all. Great they are having a calming seminar for those that need it.

Thanks for the great tips. Luckily my gang doesn’t mind loud noises.
Mitch and Molly says
I hate fireworks! I’ll be hanging out in the bathroom on the cushy rug for days to come!
Love ya lots♥
Bella, Roxy & Macdui says
Good advice. Unfortunately, some people just forget their pets when there’s a celebration. We don’t have fireworks near us, so we’re not really bothered with them. But SHE always stays with us when they’re expected.
Hi Sugar dear friend, These are such good tips and we appreciate them! In the past, we always had rescued dogs that were all terrified of fireworks-generally we had to give them some sort of meds to help them sleep. Of course thunder shirts weren’t around then; I do have a granddaughter who had one for several years. I’m hoping and praying that all dogs are safe this year; here in Colorado many towns put on shows and have outlawed fireworks for the public-a good thing.
Wags and hugs to momma.

Wonderful suggestions Sugar. JAkey is especially sensitive during fireworks season…we will make sure he keeps his thundershirt on!
