Fireworks night can be stressful for both you and your pooch, to avoid any stress or anxiety follow these simple steps:
1- take your dog for their daily walk during the daytime to avoid being out when the fireworks start.
2- keep them busy! Get out some toys and keep them entertained whilst the fireworks are on as a distraction.
3- Feed them earlier in the day and save some treats for later, this way fireworks can be associated with something positive like a late night snack.
4- create a cosy and safe environment, set up their bed with a favourite toy and play some music to mask the sound.
5- If your dog still seems to be stressed, pop them in the car with the radio on and go for a drive to a quieter loft.
