Scary 4th

July 4th celebrations can be a very scary time for pets. BEFORE the noise from fireworks gets bad, bring your dogs and cats inside, close the drapes, turn up your television to muffle the sound, play games with your pet to distract them, give dogs stuffed Kong toys, etc.


You know how you’ve been meaning to replace your dog’s lost ID tags? Drat! And now your neighborhood sounds like a war zone and your dog is going nuts.

For a quick fix, put your phone number on your dogs collar with a sharpie. It will eventually fade but its better than nothing!

Do This Now: Open your junk drawer, dig out a sharpie and write phone numbers on your pet”s collar.
