Prepping your dog for a peaceful Fourth of July isn't a difficult ting to do.  I don’t know about you but back in the day my dog was terrified by fireworks and thunder storms.  I wish I had known these tips that might have helped him have a calmer and less fearful.

  1. Lower your anxiety by making sure they are tagged and chipped in case they do get out.
  2. Pre-exercising your dog can tiring them out will help them to relax
  3. Keep your dog indoors
  4. Calming supplements
  5. Be sure they have gone to the bathroom before any fireworks start
  6. Calming music in the room where you are keeping them
  7. Carb-loading treats or rice before can also help them stay calm and a little sleepy
