It’s that time of year when thunderstorms and fireworks can put a damper on your dog’s summer. So, how can you help your dog feel better when the storms roll through or when the neighbor decides to set off a roll of firecrackers? Here are some suggestions to helping your dog feel safe and overcome their fears.
