The coming weekend happens to be a long one for us Canadians. Queen Victoria’s birthday. Our fabulous May 24 weekend.
Everyone heading for the cottage for the first time after a long winter. And of course, family fun with fireworks.
Now I am a huge advocate for taking your well mannered canine family member everywhere he would be welcome. However, to watch fireworks is NOT the place to take him.
Even if you have a dog that is very laid back and reacts to little, to have them endure the unpredictability of a fireworks show is bordering on cruelty. You also stand a high chance of your pup running off in fear.
The risk of a possible fear bite or your fur baby running off in fear is not worth your joy at having him with you for a couple of hours. Not to mention the anxiety and possible long term affects it may have.
Do everyone a favour and be that same responsible owner that had your pup socialized and trained, and leave your four legged family member peacefully at home.
Have a great long weekend. 🙂
