πŸŽ† And they’re off … FIREWORKS πŸŽ†

Sadly, fireworks are set off in the weeks leading up to Bonfire Night, Halloween etc. Β Many pugs, especially rescues who may have been kennelled outside, are extremely anxious around this time.

The Dogs Trust website has some useful top tips:

  • make sure your house and garden are secure
  • walk your dogs before dark, or as early in the evening as you can, then keep them indoors
  • make them snug. Β Some owners swear by “Thunder Shirts” or “swaddling” techniques to help them feel as secure as possible. Β You can purchase these online, or use jumpers or jackets they’re familiar with
  • use “Adaptil” plug-ins, collars, sprays etc which may calm anxious pets, or other natural supplements such as “YuCalm”
  • turn up the TV or radio, or put music on, to drown out loud bangs
  • enjoy fireworks safely, make a safe and secure “den” hideaway for your pet.
