Top Tips To Calm Your Dog During Fireworks

Around 45 percent of dogs in the UK show signs of anxiety when they hear fireworks. The loud noises and flashing lights can be very frightening for your dog but there are things you can do to help reduce your dog’s anxiety levels. Here are our top tips for managing dogs during fireworks.

1. Create a place in your home where your dog can hide.

A table covered with a blanket is a great idea, or if your dog is used to being in a crate, drape it with a blanket and leave it open with more blankets inside. Don’t shut your dog in the crate, as this can be more stressful.

2. Don’t let your dog go outdoors when fireworks are more likely to go off.

Take your dog for a long walk before it gets dark. It’s against the law to set fireworks off after 11pm but this time is extended to midnight on Bonfire Night. If your dog is particularly frightened of fireworks, you may want to feed them earlier too. Ideally introduce these changes gradually over a few days so that you don’t abruptly disrupt your dog’s routine.

3. Draw curtains / blinds

It’s not only the noise of fireworks that provide stress for dogs, it’s also the light and flashes across the sky. Leave lights on at home in order to lessen the impact.

4. Turn on the television or radio.

Classical music will help to calm dogs and music or television with a high bass level can drown out the noise of fireworks.

5. Don’t let your dog see that you’re anxious

Animals are highly perceptive and will notice if you’re behaving differently. Following your dog or fussing over them may cause them to feel anxious or confused. R your pet by playing with their favourite toy for example but try to act as normally as possible. The more you alter your behaviour, the more stressed your dog may become.

6. Consider trying a supplement

Try anxiety remedies such as our Calming Aid supplement for dogs. This is designed to reduce stress in your pet with essential amino acids and soothing Lemon Balm extract. This can be beneficial even at the last minute but if you can, begin administering the capsules a few days in advance. Our Calming Aid supplement is now only £7.99 with free UK delivery in the run up to Bonfire Night. This offer ends on 5th November, so don’t miss out!
