While New Year’s Eve is great fun for families (even if the kids don’t make it ‘til midnight)’s often terrifying for dogs. Statistics suggest that almost half of all dogs are scared of fireworks - not surprising either!

So, here are 6 tips we hope you’ll find helpful to make it as stress-free as possible for your four-legged best friend.

• Have you ever thought of playing an online video of fireworks at relatively low volume while your dog is calm and quiet? This may help start to familiarise him with the noises in a safe environment.

• On December 31st, it’s probably a good idea to ensure your dog gets plenty of “walkies” during the day so he might be more tired by the time it gets dark and the fireworks start to “whizz” and “bang”. If you know your dog will get anxious, try to feed him before it gets dark or he may not want to eat. Also, make sure your dog has his own “safe space” that he’s used to; if he’s used to a crate, you could cover it with a blanket for extra security.

• It’s a good idea to make sure that all doors and windows are securely closed, partly to deaden the noise of course but also to make sure he can’t escape if frightened.

• Raising the volume of the TV or radio will also help disguise the noise of the fireworks and playing games with favourite toys to distract him may help too.

• If you know your dog reacts badly to fireworks but you really can’t be at home with him, why not ask if somebody else can come and sit with him while you’re away? Give them some suggestions about what they should do to keep him calm.

• Lastly, if you do have to take your dog outside, please make sure he’s wearing a collar with his ID on it, just in case he makes a run for it!

So aside from doing everything you can to help prepare your dog...what about other natural ways you can support him? Well, we’ve got that idea covered right here with our super popular Peaceful Pooch product.
