Hurricane season has begun here in Florida and for some pet owners it’s all about keeping their pet stress-free whenever they hear thunder during the next couple of weeks.
I’ve heard of stories of dogs who are terrified of thunder and lightening, and with July around the corner, there will be fireworks too.
Fireworks And Pets
2. Avoid fireworks. Don’t take your pet to events that involve fireworks. Your pet is better off being left home if you are going to partake in firework festivities.
3. Don’t leave pets outside. Keep pets inside as much as possible during fireworks displays. The insulation of your home will help drown out the noise and make your dog feel more secure.
4. Don’t scold a scared pet. This will scare and confuse a dog and reinforce fearful behaviors.
