Even the most well train dogs can get frightened on run away.According to the ASPCA, the most common time of year is on the Fourth of July. Dogs can hear much better than humans so the sound of fireworks can sound like the end of the world to your best friend. If there was no music or fireworks and you suddenly heard deafening bombs, you may run away too. You can’t calm your dog by offering dog treats or his favorite dog toys during this time. The noise will cause him to react.

According to a National Council of Pet Population Study and Policy, a family pet is lost every two seconds, amounting to more than 10 million pets lost each year. Although precise numbers are not available, shelters across the nation report that July 5 is historically their busiest day of the year for taking in strays.
