The Fourth of July is one of everyone's favorite holidays. Fun cookouts, outdoor games & of course the fireworks at the end of the night. Since we want to include our dogs in as many things as possible, with this holiday in particular, there are a few extra things we have to be cautious of.
In this post we're sharing safe ways to celebrate the Fourth of July with your dog including helpful safety tips, fun treat ideas and more!
There's nothing better than enjoying some time outside on the Fourth of July. For our dogs, there are a ton of fun things we can do with our dog at home or nearby such as:

At the end of the day, the number one thing you can do for your dog is to be with them. Your presence will help comfort them and aid with any anxiety and nervousness they're feeling.

We hope you all have a fantastic Fourth of July with your dogs and we'd love to see all of the fun you're having.
