Now that July 4th is once again upon us, time to remember how the loud noise of fireworks may effect your dogs. Never take your dogs to the fireworks show - leave them home with tv or radio on loud enough to drown out any local fireworks. Always take your dogs out on a leash, especially during the time that a neighbor may be firing off little poppers or blackcat unexpectedly. And if you dogs are still bothered by the holiday noise, you may consider reducing the meal in the evening to prevent seeing it again! A nervous dog is a nervous stomach! But most of all, enjoy your celebration of our nation's birth and be safe!
