Tips to Prepare your pup:
Play white noise or soothing music
Take them on a long walk before the fireworks begin
Offer comfort and love
Be sure your dog has on their tag and tracking device in case they run
Keep your windows closed
Play with a squeaky toy to distract, but don't insist
Stuff a Kong with their favorite snacks
Try an anxiety vest, e.g., Thunder Shirt, or swaddle them in a cozy blanket
You can try desensitizing them, regularly, with firework sounds at a low level on YouTube, etc., and praise and treat them for remaining calm
If they like their crate, you can cover the sides with a blanket to muffle the sounds, but don't lock them in
