Help your four-legged friends stay calm as we move into firework season

Be Prepared

Close and lock all doors and windows. Also make sure that your animals have their ID collars on in case they get out.

Create a Safe Space

Make a "den" area for your dog or cat where they can feel safe and hide away in if they wish.

Create Distractions

Many animals respond well to distractions such as toys, TV or music. This will help take their mind off the noisy fireworks happening outside.

Tire Them Out

Try to walk your dog while it is still light outside and if you can't, make sure to keep them on a lead at all times in case they get spooked and try to bolt.

If All Else Fails...

There are some great products on the market such as Adaptil, Feliway and Rescue Remedy, and if things get really bad, you can speak to a vet for further advice.
