Volunteers Comfort Shelter Dogs on July 4 – By Reading to Them!
Many dog owners will confirm that July 4th fireworks can be terrifying for their furry friends. And some of us go to great lengths to distract our pups and keep them calm when all the big booms start. In this week’s episode of the podcast, hear how one creative animal shelter staff enlists a team of volunteers to keep their adoptable dogs calm on July 4th – by reading books to them! It’s a great story from our friends at the Kentucky Humane Society. We also share some tips to help you help your dog cope with Independence Day fireworks (or summertime thunderstorms).
