Helpful Tips for Independence Day - How to Protect Your Pets (& Area Rugs)!

Helpful Tips for Independence Day - How to Protect Your Pets (& Area Rugs)!

Hi folks!  Ruthie with Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care here in Prescott AZ!  Tomorrow is one of the greatest days of the year for us Americans - Independence Day!  It’s a day full of celebration, barbeques, and of course fireworks! What better way to celebrate our great country’s independence than with fireworks?

Of course, while they’re fun for us humans, animals don’t exactly find them all that fun.  This is the time of year where more pets go missing than ever in the United States and that’s a kind of heartbreak that no one wants to have to endure.

So here are some helpful tips to keep your pets safe during the celebrations:

  1. Keep your pet indoors!  Keeping your dogs inside will help ensure that they won’t be escaping from the back yard to find safety.

  2. Give them a safe place to hide. Either in a bedroom or make their kennel nice and comfy for them, they’ll feel much better if they can hide somewhere.

  3. Play calming music - either from the radio or even on your TV.  Calming music can help to mask the big explosions and help to calm your animal friend.

Animals - especially dogs - that are frightened are much more likely to pee on your carpets and area rugs as well.  So to help protect your area rugs, make sure your dogs are kept somewhere they can’t access those rugs. Alternatively, you can also roll your area rugs up for the night until the next morning when all the festivities are over.

If your dog or cat does happen to urinate on your area rug because they got spooked by the fireworks (or if they’ve done it in the past), give us here at Arizona Oriental a call!  We will clean and treat your area rugs (wool, silk, synthetic - you name it!) and help to protect your area rug from further accidents.

From all of us at Arizona Oriental & Specialty Rug Care - Happy Independence Day!
Stay safe this year and enjoy the celebrations without risking the safety of your animal friends!

Till next time, enjoy your beautiful art for your floor and remember a clean rug is a rug that can last you a lifetime!
