Fireworks and Dogs Jun 29, 2019

Fireworks and Thunderstorms, Oh My!

Fireworks may be fun for us but not necessarily for your canine companions. The loud, unpredictable noises may have your pooch in a state of anxiety, and the same goes for thunderstorms.

With Canada Day and the 4th of July almost here, there are many pet parents who will have to calm their furry friends. Thankfully there are a few ways to do this.

1) Make sure your dog is well exercised during the day so he’s tired at night.

2) Whether it’s a crate or a spare room, have a safe spot in the house where your dog can retreat. If possible, have a fan or a white noise machine close by to help drown out the noise of the fireworks.

3) Use an herbal calmer like My Healthy Pet® Herbal Calmer to help settle mental and physical nerves, without inducing drowsiness.

4) Ensure your dog is wearing her collar and tags in case she escapes from the house.

5) Keep curtains closed to eliminate visual stimulation.

6) Provide a fun distraction like a favourite chew toy or treat.

And remember to be patient. We know what’s happening outside is safe but your little doggo doesn’t.
