Ok, since the fourth is coming up pretty quick I have a few questions. I know my dogs, well atleast Mack, is PETRIFIED of fireworks. What can I do with him to calm him down when they start going? He hates being in the basement. Our yard isn't fenced, and I wouldn't want to put him outside with the fireworks anyway. Should I kennel him, or let him hang out with us? The few times people have let off fireworks during the early a.m. hours he has freaked out and woke the whole entire house up. I'm just worried about him. My grandparents had a German Shepard a LONG time ago and it ended up freaking out so much that it got out of the house and took off. Someone called them the next day and said their dog had gotten struck and killed on the expressway, when they went to where she was hit she had already been taken away. I don't want something like that to happen to one of my dogs.
