This coming week is the 4th of July weekend, and this is the weekend where the Idaho Humane Society gets a flood of calls regarding pets who have runaway due to the high anxiety due to fireworks.

Dogs are frightened by fireworks. Even if they are in a kennel or outside on a lease, dogs get scared and find a way to get loose and runaway according to the Idaho Humane Society.

The Idaho Humane Society suggests that dog owners keep their dogs indoors during firework displays or while people are shooting off fireworks in the neighborhood.

Some pet-owners report that they have success with aromatherapy in keeping their pets calm during firework shows. Some try to use music in the home to calm the animals. But the best solution for dog owners to keep their dogs and others safe is to keep their dogs indoors during firework displays.

If you see a dog loose in the neighborhood, it’s best to call animal control to handle the problem, but be aware that the dog shelter is on overflow during this weekend due to the number of dogs that become frightened and get loose.

Dogs in an excited condition can be prone to bite.

If you are bitten by a dog, you should review the article Mr. Morton has prepared for you regarding the 8 things to document to help you prove your case against the dog owner.
