Tips for a Relaxing 4th of July with Your Anxious Dog

As July 4th approaches, many dog owners are gearing up for fireworks and festivities that can trigger stress and anxiety in their furry companions. Here are some tips on how to help your dogs stay calm and safe during the Fourth of July celebrations.

Use a calming supplement to aid in relaxation

Ease your dog's anxiety with Happy Dingos' Mellow Fellow Calming Supplement for Dogs. These all-natural bacon-flavored soft chews use hemp and calming herbs like chamomile and valerian root that have been show to help promote a sense of calm and relieve stress. Plan accordingly and allow 30 - 1 hour for the effects to kick in. 

Release their energy

Enrichment tools, such as lick mats, are also great for helping them release energy and de-stressing. Prior to fireworks starting, bring out your Happy Dingos' Calming Lick Mat and Mellow Fellow Peanut Butter and allow them to lick their fears away! The powerful combo keeps your dog busy and entertained as they work to remove the yummy peanut butter out from the crevices of the lick mat. Our all-natural peanut butter is also packed with calming ingredients such as Ashwagandha, Valerian Root, and L-Tryptophan that will help ease their nerves. 

Create a quiet and safe space

To minimize exposure to loud noises and bright lights, keep your dog indoors during the fireworks display. Close windows and curtains to reduce outside stimuli. Play some relaxing classical music and allow them to cuddle up with their favorite toy or blanket. 

By incorporating these tips and utilizing our Mellow Fellow calming products, you can help your dog stay relaxed, safe, and stress-free during the Fourth of July festivities. Let's make this holiday a peaceful and enjoyable time for both you and your beloved pet.
