TIP 1: ESCAPE ROUTE
Make sure your dog or cat always has access to a comfortable, quiet and safe place to hide. Either a close, under a piece of furniture or in his crate.
TIP 2: HAVE TOYS
Keep toys in your pet’s safe area to make the area more fun and to provide distractions from loud noises and flashes.
TIP 3: EXERCISE IS KEY
Make time to exercise your pet during daylight hours and keep them safely indoors after fireworks begin.
TIP 4: TURN UP THE MUSIC, BUT NOT TOO LOUD
At dusk, close your windows and curtains and turn on music to muffle the noise.
TIP 5: NO FEAR
Ignore signs of fear unless the pet is likely to get hurt – and never punish them if they are scared.
TIP 6: UPDATE CONTACT INFO
Make sure your pet’s AKC Reunite microchip enrollment is up to date in case your pet manages to escape. You can update your records online or call us at 800-252-7894.
