Keep Your Pup Safe, Healthy and Happy This 4th of July
With all the lights, colors, sounds, smells and tastes, the 4th of July can be a fun time for humans, but it can be scary and even dangerous for our four-legged friends. Dogs don’t understand the concept of Independence Day, and they can get into some bad situations as a result. So we thought we’d put together some tips to help your pal stay safe and comfortable during the 4th of July celebrations this year. Here are some things to consider.
While some of these tips might seem like no brainers, you would be surprised how easy it is for a dog to get hold of something dangerous or unhealthy, especially when there’s a party going on and everyone is distracted. Please, be careful this 4th of July! Let July 5 roll in with everyone – including your dog – happy and healthy.
