We will be closed Saturday, July 4th.

So here are some tips to make sure your pet is safe around the 4th of July:

  • Desensitizing your dog: First, begin with the trigger, but play it at a very, very low volume.  Downloading the sounds can be quite helpful. As the sound is playing, ensure your pet is calm and relaxed. If they aren’t, the sound is too loud. If they are, feed them appropriate snacks.
  • Make a quite room: Most dogs prefer to be as far from fireworks as possible. Set them up in the safest, quietest room, often a basement. Provide a comfortable familiar bed and something to do, such as a Kong.
  • Think about a Thundershirt: Thundershirts can be wonderful for pets with various anxieties; however, some must first be conditioned to the sensation of the tight fitting garment. The idea is the shirt applies maintained pressure around the core of the body, thereby reducing stress and anxiety.
  • Sometimes your pet is better at home, then have your dog struggles with the fireworks.
