PSA... Dogs and fireworks!

Postby i_willie12 » Wed Jul 02, 2014 2:55 pm

Every year it seems someone will get on here and say "crap my dog is scared Sh*tless now due to fireworks.." etc... Keep your dogs in mind over this weekend!! Keep them in house, be aware of your dogs pen and when you shot of fireworks... A little planning will go along ways!!!

Worse story i remember over the years was a guy left his dog in a wire kennel at camp site and went into town.... While gone punk kids were shooting bottle rockets at it in the crate for like 30 minutes before someone stopped them! :mad:

They were talking about the same on the radio today. The angle was all the 'pets' they collect at the shelter who 'rin-off' scared to death when folks take them to fireworks shows.

When my dog was about 5 months old I had him at the lake with us and assumed that fireworks wouldn't be a big deal since he wasn't scared of anything. Well, I was wrong. The bang isn't what got him, it's the take off that he headed for the hills from. He took off so fast I couldn't grab him, luckily he ran around the house and jumped in the bed of my truck. From then on, no more fireworks around him.
