During this time of year, especially in Southeastern Idaho, the sun seems to always be shining until late evening. The Russian olive trees smell oh so sweet, and the warm weather is certainly a welcome change. Along with these fortunes come outdoor celebrations. Unfortunately, these celebrations also bring along noises like pops and crackles of fireworks.

To ensure your four-legged friends relax during summer celebrations, please consider the effects noises may have on them. Relax your dog or cat by exercising them beforehand, keep them indoors, close windows and doors, and create white noise by turning on the radio, TV or a fan.
