Dogs and fireworks: Help your pup cope with the rockets’ red glare

It’s the biggest, boomiest celebration of the summer for Americans, but for some dogs, the Fourth of July is more frightening than fun. The thunderous noise from fireworks can have a major effect on some dogs, while others barely seem to notice. Much of that has to do with their first exposure to fireworks, but it sometimes happens that even if a dog is well out of the puppy stage, a major scare will stay with him for the rest of his life.
