Dog Friendly Plans for 4th of July

While your dog shouldn't be included in your 4th of July fireworks fun, you can still make some fun plans with your dog to celebrate the holiday.

Make dog-friendly plans for the 4th of July

Dog-Friendly Plans for 4th of July
1.  Do something early.  Play in the backyard, go to your favorite park or take your dog dog for a nice swim during the day before all the holiday commotion begins.  This is great for tiring out a dog who tends to become anxious or fearful once the booming of the fireworks starts.

2.  Make dog-friendly treats.  Scraps from the grill can upset a dog's stomach so having some fun, homemade dog-treats, like my Strawberry Banana SuperGravy Dixie Pups, will be a healthy and cooling alternative.

3.  Spend quiet time together.  Before you head out for the big fireworks display, spend some quality quiet time with your dog.  It will be soothing for both of you.

And remember these 4 Pet Safety Tips for 4th of July to help keep your dog safe and secure.

Do you have dog-friendly plans for this 4th of July?

  3. We are sticking pretty close to home this fourth of July. Our new neighborhood is pretty quiet so Ruby should be fine - though fortunately, she doesn't seem to bothered by loud noises.

  6. Mom says she will be taking us for a couple of long walks today and tomorrow. We think we spotted some Frosty Paws in the freezer - they MUST be for us, right? And the Mom and Dad will stay home with us tomorrow night as Ciara is terrified of fireworks.

    Have a wonderful AND safe 4th of July.

  8. We are going for a run in the morning unless it is too hot then our pawrents will not take us. It has been in the low 100's as of late and if it doesn't cool off enough we can't go. We aren't scared of fireworks but right now they are banned in our area. Some people ignore the ban but it is much quieter.

    Your Pals,

  9. We hang out during the day, Mom goes to the neighborhood party for a while, then we go to bed early. Mom can watch the fireworks from her bed as our house is up on higher ground.
