The 4th of July celebrates the birth of our nation and is a fun holiday for humans. For dogs however, it can be very scary.
More dogs are lost over the 4th of July than at any other time.
They get frightened by the loud fireworks and run, bolting out doors and over fences. Make sure your dog has a license and ID tag on their collar. A microchip can't be lost like a collar can, but you do have to register the chip!
Have a quiet place for your dog during the fireworks, the basement is ideal because it is more soundproof that the house itself.
