Summer is a great time for fireworks. But did you know that your dog, like most dogs, is probably really afraid of those explosions and dazzling displays of light in the sky?
Loud bangs make them crazy and even want to run away. A friend of mine had this experience. He was letting off fireworks to entertain his family and the family dog became so agitated it broke free from the leash and headed off into the night. Unlike Lassie, that dog stayed lost. She never came home again.
So please, lock your dog inside and protect him or her from loud fireworks. Good advice to avoid a heartbreaking loss.
