Our plans for the day include heading out to the lake for some SUP/kayaking with lots of dog swimming. Tired dogs tend to be less anxious when the big booms start.
Ptera did really well with fireworks last year. Koira generally is terrified from the first boom, but does better here in the country than in town where they go off for hours. This is Flight's first year here for the 4th, so I am not sure how he will do.
After playing on the water and tiring the dogs out well, the plan is to hunker down inside with a movie (probably the Star Wars one that just hit Netflix). All of the dogs are microchipped, and will all be wearing collars and tags just in case.
Composure (by Vetriscience) is what I give all of the dogs to start with, early in the evening. Koira will also get Pet Releaf treats with CBD oil. I have prescription meds for Koira as well, but I don't think we'll need them here this year.
And of course, the car has leashes and treats stocked in case I run into any loose dogs in the next day or two. I have found more stray dogs in the week around the 4th than any other time of year.
Here's to a good 4th.
