Fireworks can be scary for dogs, but there are things you can do to help them stay calm.
Play calming music to help mask the sound of fireworks. Classical music or nature sounds can be helpful.
Dogs can sense your emotions, so it's important to stay calm during fireworks. Talk to your dog in a soothing voice and pet them gently.
Punishing your dog for being scared of fireworks will only make their fear worse. Be patient and understanding.
Reward your dog for staying calm during fireworks. Give them treats or praise them verbally.
You can desensitize your dog to fireworks by playing recordings of fireworks at a low volume and gradually increasing the volume.
If your dog's fear of fireworks is severe, talk to your veterinarian. They may prescribe medication to help your dog stay calm.
