Today marks 18 years since the devastating events on September 11th, 2001. There were many incredible stories of heroism we will never forget, including the disaster search dogs who used their powerful noses to find survivors from the rubble at Ground Zero and the therapy dogs who provided much-needed comfort to first responders and family members of the victims.
The long Labor Day weekend is a time to celebrate with our friends and family, including our four-legged ones! To fully enjoy the weekend and closing summertime festivities with your furry friends, keep these important safety tips in mind.
Happy National Dog Day! Every day is a great day to celebrate dogs, but National Dog Day, held annually on August 26th, is a day that gives us an extra special reason to show our four-legged friends just how much we love and appreciate them.
Keep your pups safe and happy this 4th of July with these quick and helpful tips!
1.) Keep Your Dog Inside
It's best to keep your dog inside during Fourth of July celebrations. Make sure to bring them in the house instead of keeping them in the yard. Block out loud sounds and bright flashes of light by keeping your pup in a room where they're comfortable, closing the blinds and turning on the television or turning up the music. If your pup is crate trained, put them in their crate covered with a blanket to make them feel safe and secure. Make sure to check on your dog and show them lots of love and encouragement to reinforce the sense of security.
