Many people don’t have family around them on July 4th and this is a great way to bring joy to someone’s life! Hospitals are great places for dog therapy as well.

Many dogs are afraid of fireworks, and for good reason. With sensitive hearing, the fireworks are LOUD and sudden noises are scary to most dogs. Make sure you have taken precautions to protect and comfort your dog while fireworks are going on.
