DOGS & FIREWORKS
We love a colorful sky explosion as much as the next guy, but fireworks aren't fun for our furry friends. Fireworks are loud, unpredictable, and can make pets feel threatened. So how do we keep our fur buddies relaxed during these human festivities? From planning your outdoor activity schedule to Pet IDs and CBD, we've covered some Do's and Don't for your upcoming month of festivities and summertime fun.
MAKE a plan
Finish outdoor activities, such as walks, prior to it getting dark when the sky is sure to start booming and banging.
check pet id
Preventative safety measures such as ensuring your pet has an ID collar and are microchipped with updated contact information will go a long way.
Create an environment for your pet where they feel at home and are around other pets. Treating them with CBD treats is another measure to help eliminate stress and anxiety
In order to help keep your pup calm, you, in turn, need to be calm to help ensure they feel safe. Offer added exercise during the day to fend off extra energy later.
Keep your pup safe and secure by not letting them off a leash outside of a fenced area during fireworks season. Check fencing for holes to help prevent escape.
Our pets can't get enough of our loving, especially in high-stress situations. Take that extra step to help eliminate stress and anxiety of loud sounds and flashing.
HAVE A HAPPY 4th & Month ahead!
From all of us at The Ark, we wish you & your loved ones a Happy Independence Day and July!
