Top tips for keeping your pets calm during the firework season

  1. Walk your dog during daylight hours to avoid times when fireworks are likely to be set off
  2. Close windows and curtains to muffle the sound of fireworks
  3. Play music or turn on the tv to mask any loud bang or flashes of light
  4. Make a quiet space where your dog can feel in control
  5. Create some hiding places around your home
  6. Make sure that they cannot escape from the house.  A big bang may make them bolt for the door.
  7. Never scold them for barking. They are frightened so just reassure them and cuddle them.
