The noise of fireworks makes dogs feel tensed and send them into a panicky mode. Good Morning America quoted Kitty Block, president and CEO of The Humane Society of the United States as saying, “They hear extremely loud noises that often make the ground vibrate and see bright flashing lights. They don’t know it’s a holiday or a celebration, often they don’t even know where the sound is coming from, so their desire to get away or hide is understandable.” Fourth of July Recipes 2019: From Cake Pops to Patriotic Fruit Pizza Here Are Easy Dishes You Can Try at Home This Us Independence Day.
