How To Help Dogs Feel Calm With Fireworks & Storms

Updated: Jan 20




Fireworks & Storms

I expect we will start to see more of them in the coming years but what do we do with our pups...?! The ideal reaction is for puppy to not even notice they exist and continue to go about their normal business, have dinner, play, poop and sleep. But some of the bangs are just impossible to ignore and especially for those puppy’s experiencing fireworks for the first time. To start with let’s set our pups up for success and just close the curtains early, maybe turn the tv up alittle louder and continue to go about our normal routine. If doggy barks at the fireworks you can practice your ‘Leave’ and pick up a toy to play or do some basic training... try to be more interesting to interact with then the fireworks. If doggy runs away to hide or is showing fear, try to entice them into play or practice a ‘watch me’ or ‘paw’ before they get too scared. You want your voice and body language to remain calming and unalarming, try just sitting on the floor and giving pup some time to think with you near by waiting for a gentle cuddle and maybe a couple of kisses followed by some playtime. Try not to wait for your dog to choose how to react but rather show them from the start. Best of luck and get in touch if you have questions, have fun and enjoy the start of the festivities
