HOW TO CALM YOUR DOGS ON NEW YEAR…


  1. 1

    Plan ahead

    Plan ahead for how you intend to manage the evening as it gets progressively louder and more rowdy! Obviously, if you know that your dog will not cope well with the noise and bangs, you will want to ensure that you are all ready to manage things when they do happen, but also, try to desensitise your dog to fireworks, bangs and other noise as an ongoing process throughout the year, and not just something that you think about in the run-up to New Year’s Eve itself!
  2. 2

    Have someone at home

    If your dog is likely to be very stressed out and possibly even a danger to themselves on New Year’s Eve, you might have to face the fact that one member of the family will have to miss the parties and stay at home to take care of your dog.
  3. 3

    Restrict your pet

    Keeping your dog restricted to just one room of the house, or their crate or bed if they are crate trained, can actually help to keep them calm and under control, so make that room or place comfortable and reassuring so that your dog will see it as a safe resting place and not a punishment.
  4. 4

    Masking noise

    Covering to some extent the sound of noise from fireworks and other sounds from the street can help to mask and muffle them, reduce the effect that they are having on your dog. This might mean having the radio or TV on a little louder than normal, and you should set this up well before the bangs are likely to start, so that it covers.
  5. 5

    Masking light

    As well as the bangs of fireworks and noise, the flashing lights that come with fireworks too can disturb and upset your dog. Close the curtains so that your dog will not spot the lights and so, be likely to react negatively to them.
