Happy Fourth Everyone
Pallo doesn't really care about fireworks at all.
But he does love the new red white and blue tuggie
I worked with both of the dogs last year leading up to the Fourth. I purchased those small white poppers, and did a pop, treat, pop, treat method of desensitization. Then, as fireworks went off in increasing amounts around the neighbor hood each night, I went and sat outside, with the dogs, calmly reading a book or similar. Somehow, this all worked, and Koira, scared though she is of buses and garbage trucks, is now only mildly worried about fireworks, and then only the super loud ones.
Koira is enjoying the hot weather, and showing off her famous smile
And I can't put up a post without a picture of Pallo's paws, apparently
Enjoy the Fourth!
If you get the chance, head on over to Never Say Never Greyhounds. They posted an amazingly moving video of a horse hero named Reckless.
