Tip #4. Final preparation to keep Rover safe at home:

Cover gaps by nailing a board of plywood to damaged fence.

Lastly, if you know your pet becomes extremely distressed by loud noises like thunder, consult your veterinarian before The Fourth of July to see if medication that relieves anxiety is appropriate for your pet.
