Dogs scared by fireworks

Pet owners may wish to take some time to have a read of the below and get a desensitising firework playlist playing ahead of tonight's New Year celebrations. Works wonders for our cat and dog!

Sometimes half the problem is the owners themselves overreacting to the fireworks (the pets pick up on your agitation and react accordingly), so just stay calm and you'll be able to help your pet out tonight!

Some good links below but if you have a specific issue google always seems to have the solution (no such thing as an untrainable dog!) so take some time to dig into it and look after the furrier members of our families tonight!
