Happy 4th of July! Keep Your Dogs Safe!
Posted by Dan Hinds on 29th June 2016
The 4th of July is one of the best cookout days of the year, and not
just for humans. I don't have firm stats on this, but I'm pretty sure
more hotdogs and hamburgers are dropped by kids (or inebriated adults)
and stolen by dogs than any other day of the year, so of course our
furry friends love the holiday.
Unfortunately, after a day of pilfered lawn food, the fireworks come.
majority of dogs are terrified of fireworks, and that's why more pets
run away on the 4th of July than any other day of the year. Be sure to
keep your pets safe and secure this weekend so your pet doesn't become
one of the 7.6 million pets that become lost each year.

Trying to decide which is better for your dog—a collar or a harness? The short answer is: You may need both. It really depends on the size and temperament of your dog and what it takes to maintain safe control of him.
A dog barking in the backseat of the car can be a real nuisance—and even a hazard—for human drivers. But for dogs, barking is a way of communicating. In order to put the kibosh on all that annoying barking, we first need to understand why our furry companion is barking to begin with.
