Dog scared of fireworks? 5 ways to fight back

Dog scared of fireworks? 5 ways to fight back - Hemp Well

Dogs have an incredible sense of hearing, which makes them very sensitive to loud noises. Fireworks are one of the most common things that can trigger a dog's fear response. If your dog is scared of fireworks, there are a few things you can do to help them feel more comfortable.

You be cool, they be cool

Rule #1, stay calm yourself. Dogs can pick up on our emotions and if you're feeling anxious, they will likely mirror that feeling.

Create a Safe Space

Get creative and try to create a safe space for them to retreat to when the fireworks start. This could be a crate or a quiet room in your house where they feel comfortable.

Desensitization Training

You can also try desensitization training, which involves exposing your dog to the sound of fireworks at a low volume until they become accustomed to it.

Consider organic supplements to calm your dog

Show your dog lots of love

Make sure to always give your dog plenty of reassurance and love. Massages help, too. And remember, it's okay if your dog's scared of fireworks.
