The end of June is near, which means we have our third safety tip ready for you! Our Rover Safety Series over the past few days has given us great tools regarding your dog’s safety on this fun holiday. If you missed Tip 1 and Tip 2, find them here.
We mentioned Rover should stay indoors and how to successfully do that, but here are some no-no’s when it comes to dog safety on the Fourth of July on behalf of San Diego County Animal Services Department.
Fourth of July Finding Rover Safety Tips:
Tip #3. What not to do on the most explosive holiday of the year:
Resist the urge to take your pet to fireworks displays. Research indicates dogs’ hearing is already 4 times stronger than ours, so could you imagine turning up the volume of those firework explosions! Yikes! Rover is more likely to be safe and secure inside at home.
Do not leave your pet in the car. With only hot air to breathe inside a car, your pet can suffer serious health effects, even death, in a few minutes. This tip not only applies to The Fourth of July, but should be followed all throughout the year as well.
At all costs, avoid leaving your dog unattended outside. On normally quiet days, your dog may love to roam his own backyard. When fear hits instincts will take over, and Rover will want to bolt.
Share Finding Rover and these tips with your community so you all are better protected and more prepared for the fun-filled weekend ahead! When your dog and neighbors’ dogs are registered on Finding Rover and safe, you all can have true peace of mind when The Fourth of July celebrations begin.
Tips one, two, and three cover a lot of ground, but what’s our last resort? Stay tuned for Tip 4, which will talk about the final preparations as The Fourth approaches.
