Did you know that more dogs run away from home on July 4th than any other day of the year? This doesn’t have to be the case. Braxton’s Animal Works offers a variety of  pet calming remedies and devices to keep your pet safe and secure.


1. Know when fireworks will be happening
First, it is important to contact your local municipality to find out when fireworks are expected.

2. Check that your pets’ ID tags and microchips are updated                                                          In case your pet gets away during the celebrations, ID is the best way for him to be returned home quickly.

3. Prepare your house
Plan to use familiar noise to drown out firework sounds. Keep some lights on to make your pet feel comfortable. If necessary, keep your pet crated.

4. Prepare a room
Select an inner room and prepare it with clean bedding and soothing music.

5. Provide food and water
Be sure to have sufficient food and water available as it can calm your pet down.

6. Exercise                                                                                                                                                         Tiring your pet out earlier in the day can help to ensure that he rests during the big event.
