How to Avoid the Firework Freak Out
The 4th of July is upon us! How can you help your pet remain safe and calm during the festive (if noisy) holiday activities?
NULLIFY THE NOISE
Drawing curtains and closing windows can help to soundproof your house so that the sound of the fireworks won't startle your pets. Turning on a known noise, such as your TV or radio, can also calm anxious animals!
HUNKER DOWN AND HIDE
Make sure to provide your pet with plenty of bedding and hiding places. this will keep the noise out and provides a cozy haven for your pet.
FORGO THE FLASH
By blacking out the windows or drawing the curtains, you'll be able to protect your pet from seeing the flashes of light that can induce anxiety.
