Be prepared for Fireworks Night

Most pets find fireworks stressful, but there are some steps you can take to ensure the evening passes as calmly as possible:

  • Make sure your dog gets plenty of exercise earlier in the day.
  • Keep your pets inside during fireworks, preferably with human companionship.
  • Provide a safe place inside for your pets to retreat and feel safe.
  • If possible, keep the windows and curtains closed.
  • Removing visual stimulation can also help calm dogs.
  • Make sure all your dogs are wearing ID tags with a properly fitting collar - just in case.
  • Give your pet something fun to do - like a new toy or some treats
