If you do bring Fido with you to a celebration, keep him on leash at all times. Your normally calm dog may dart off unexpectedly and terrible accidents happen to dogs off leash, especially when you throw pyrotechnics into the mix. Fido should be nowhere near cherry bombs, Roman candles, sparklers or anything else that involves ﬁre and gunpowder. If he gets too close, he can be burned, lose an eye or suffer hearing loss from the explosions.
Immediately dispose of all unused ﬁreworks and remnants, as they are toxic if ingested. After the holiday, look for ﬁrework pieces when you’re out walking or playing. Protect everyone’s pet by throwing away anything you find.
