Title Bullet Keeping Your Pet Calm on the 4th of July
More pets run away on the Fourth of July than any other day - please take extra steps to ensure their safety. Keep a watchful eye on your pets during the commotion, and make sure your pet is wearing proper identification. Loud sounds trigger their nervous systems and they can become anxious or afraid - running away from the noise is a survival instinct. Here are some tips to help keep your dog calm:

1. Preparation - Arrange to have your dog in a place where there won't be loud fireworks displays — a friend's or relative's home or a doggie day care with which your dog is familiar. If it's an unfamiliar place for your dog, take him over there a few times in the days before the holiday so that it won't be a surprise when you take him there on the Fourth.
2. Accommodation - If you cannot take your dog to a place away from fireworks, then have a travel kennel at home for him or her to feel safe in. If you're not going to be home, have a friend or sitter there to keep your dog company and take of them.
