- Remember, it will be hot - bring lots of fresh water for your dog
- Invest in a good water travel dish
- Make sure you take plenty of breaks during the day. Rest up in a nice shady area
- Think of your dog, know your dog! Is your dog comfortable in social settings? Are they anxious around numerous people or events? If so, it may be best to leave your pup at home.
- Mosquitoes can get bad at night, think about leaving your pup at home
- Fireworks can be very scary for dogs, so again, think of your dogs best interest, and leave them home for these celebrations.
- While your out at the fireworks, leave the Television or radio on. This will help drowned out the sound of the fireworks
- Always make sure your dog has a safe spot, where they would go, should they become scared.
- If you stay home with your dog: Do not force him to stay by your side. If he is more comfortable hiding in a corner, let him hide in a corner! Just make sure he knows your there, and he is safe
- Do not act any different. If you get anxious because you know your dog will become anxious, than he will just get even more anxious! (That was a mouthful!)
- Do not baby your dog during fireworks. Do your best to act as if everything is ok, and nothing is out of the ordinary
