Poll: Is your Golden Retriever afraid of Fireworks??

It’s Canada Day this weekend, and the Fourth of July.  I recently learned that the busiest day in animal shelters in the U.S. is July the 5th.  Can anyone guess why?

I was just sitting out on my back deck enjoying this crazy heat, and listening to the odd firecracker go off.  Its not even dusk.  Why does this always happen?  Cant people wait until dark??

Shortly after, I heard someone roaming the neighborhood calling for their pet.  I can only imagine the crack of fireworks scared the pet and it took off.  Of all the dogs I have owned, the only two who weren’t afraid of fireworks and thunder were my two goldens.  My german shepherd was terrified of both, so were my malamutes.

I realize my readership is still rather small, but if you would share this post with any golden owners you know, that would be appreciated.  Please vote!

I will leave you with a cute video of a golden retriever listening to fireworks….

  1. I couldn’t vote because I have to say yes and no. My first golden was terrified of fireworks and thunder. You always knew when it was going to rain when you found him under the table. Winston (our current golden boy) isn’t scared of anything. He just starts barking like he needs to tell us he heard something so we can let him outside to check it out.

  2. My Teulu is so totally not afraid of fireworks its funny, he sleeps right through. I do wish i could say the same for thunder storms- which are much more frequent and cause him to pace and salivate.

  3. I’ve been the proud “mom” of 4 goldens in the past 17 years. None have been afraid of fireworks or thunder storms. In fact, not much has ever bothered any of them. I have found that my boys are not as tough as my little girl though!

    1. It seems we may be the minority Terri. mine sat outside and watched them with us this past Victoria Day. I wonder if it has anything to do with them being exposed to it as pups. I am going to ask the breeder next time I speak to her.
