HOW TO HELP YOUR ANXIOUS DOG DEAL WITH FIREWORKS

With very few planned firework displays going on this year, I have a feeling there will be more household firework being let off, meaning it will be harder to comfort your anxious dogs. Here are a few ideas to help calm dogs during the next week or so:

  • Walk them during daylight hours to avoid times when fireworks are likely to be set off

  • Close windows and curtains to muffle the sound of fireworks

  • Put on some music or tv to mask the firework sounds

  • Create a quiet space where your dog can feel in control

  • Create some safe hiding places around your home

  • Stay with your pet to reassure them. Don't leave them home alone

  • Seek your vets advice. They may be able to prescribe mild sedatives for dogs who get really anxious.
