Fireworks Can Spook Your Dog

Lost Dogs, Fireworks, Fourth Of July

Sadly, posters like this are everywhere (Photo by Jeramey Jannene/Flickr)

It breaks my heart. As someone who’s walking around the city all day, I can definitely say that it’s a sad fact. Every year after the Fourth of July, I see a dramatic increase in lost dog posters. On telephone poles, inside shop windows and on community bulletin boards.

Where ever there’s a spot for a poster to hang, there’s often news of a dog that went running during the fireworks on the Fourth.

Here are some tips about pets and fireworks we’ve shared here.

Even if the next fireworks display might be a months away (some big celebrations are being postponed because of COVID-19), it’s never too early to stay plugged in about the best ways to look after our furry family members. That said, there will undoubtedly be someone in your neighborhood firing off their own personal fireworks, and those close-by explosions could spook your dog.

If you spend part of your day on foot like I do, I hope you keep an eye open for these loving companions who’ve gone missing.
