4th of July Fun for Raw Fed Pups: Keeping Your Canine Companion Safe & Happy

The 4th of July is all about backyard barbecues, dazzling fireworks, and celebrating with our furry family members! But for raw feeders, the holiday can be tricky. How do you keep your pup safe from tempting BBQ scraps and fireworks anxiety? Here's your guide to a pawsome 4th of July with your raw-fed friend!

Food Focus

Ditch the BBQ: Skip the cooked bones and fatty meats that can upset your dog's tummy. Instead, pack some raw-rific treats like frozen meat chunks or dehydrated organ meats to keep them happy and healthy.

Beware the Buffet: With all the hustle and bustle, dropped food is a guarantee. Keep a watchful eye to prevent your pup from snatching up forbidden items like cooked meats, onions, grapes, or chips.

Fireworks Fear

Loud noises can be terrifying for dogs. Here's how to create a calm haven:

Chill Out Zone: Create a quiet, escape-proof space away from the fireworks. Think comfy bedding, a favorite chew toy, and maybe even a calming doggy pheromone diffuser for an extra sense of zen.

Desensitization (Optional): If you have time beforehand, try desensitizing your dog to loud noises. Play recordings of fireworks at a low volume and gradually increase it, rewarding calmness with treats.

Distraction is King: During fireworks, distract your pup with indoor games like fetch or offer a long-lasting chew toy. Some pet owners find anti-anxiety wraps or calming treats helpful as well.

Keeping Cool & Secure

Beat the Heat: Hot weather often accompanies the 4th. Make sure your dog has plenty of fresh, cool water and access to shaded areas. Consider a cooling vest or mat for extra comfort.

Escape Prevention: The excitement can spook even the most well-trained dog. Double-check your fence and leash for any weaknesses. Ensure your dog wears a collar with proper identification in case of an escape.

Festive Fun for Fido

Rawsome Feast: Celebrate with a special raw food meal using your dog's favorite protein sources and veggies. Get creative with star-shaped frozen treats made from raw meat for an added festive touch!

Frozen Fun: Fill a Kong toy with raw food and freeze it for a long-lasting, cool treat that will keep your pup occupied and happy.

With a little planning, your raw-fed pup can have a safe and enjoyable 4th of July right alongside you. After all, a happy and healthy pup makes for a happy holiday for everyone! Get updated articles on Berger Blanc Suisse at
