The bright, booming bursts overhead send many pups scrambling for cover. Videos Inside Edition found on YouTube show dogs seeking shelter in the fridge and cowering in the dryer, among other places.
With the holiday just around the corner, veterinarian Dr. Jeff Werber offered up some advice for calming your dog during fireworks.
First, he said, distract your canine with a TV show featuring animals. If that doesn't work, try giving your pup a toy.
For those dogs that are especially freaked out by fireworks, Werber suggests what's known as a ThunderShirt, an anxiety-relieving vest that's the equivalent of a doggie security blanket.
