Bonfire night Dogs hate Fireworks

Due to no large firework displays this year we feel there will be an increase in backyard displays, which will go no for a considerable amount of time.

Here is some tips to try keep your pets calm.

What should I do on firework nights to help keep my cat or dog calm?

Take your dog for a walk well before fireworks are due to begin.

Don’t pick up cats or restrain them if they are scared: cats prefer to control how they cope.

Keep doors, windows and cat and dog flaps closed.

Draw the curtains and play music with a repetitive beat to help mask the sounds.

If your pet prefers to go away and hide, let them. Leave them alone and don’t try to comfort them – this is their way of coping.

If your pet is used to seeking reassurance from you in stressful times, comfort them as you would normally.

Stay calm yourself. Keep your tone, mood and behaviour as normal as possible. If you get very anxious or comfort your pet more than usual, this can make your pet more unsettled.

Never punish your pets. It’s not their fault they’re scared and it adds to their anxiety.
