More dogs run away on the 4th of July than on any other day of the year. Many dogs get scared by the noises and commotion of the holiday, causing many to even flee from secure fenced backyards. The dogs run away as a survival instinct caused by the noises, burning smells, and flashes of light. It is important to keep a close eye on your dog this holiday and look for signs of stress.
There are many different signs of stress to look out for. When dogs are stressed they may excessively lick their paws or nose, refuse food, pace or hide, or shake and pant even though it is not hot. It is important that you keep your dogs on leash around any potential loud noises or fireworks. Some dogs, however, will continue to be anxious even if they will remain at home. Luckily, there are a few different companies that make cannabis infused dog treats that can help calm your dog and keep them stress free this Independence Day.
