Fireworks & Your Pets
Fireworks can be disturbing to some animals. Here are some tips from Lakewood Animal Control:
- Dogs can jump fences when startled by fireworks, even if they have never jumped one before. Keep your pet in a quiet and secure location during fireworks.
- Make sure your pet's ID is current. Dogs' identification tags should have current information in case they get away.
- Keep pets indoors during fireworks. Closing curtains, turning on the TV or radio, or keeping your pet in a carrier may provide them a distraction and sense of security during these noisy celebrations.
- If you must be outside with your pet, keep them on a leash or in a carrier at all times.
