It’s natural for your dog to be afraid of loud noises and he may become anxious or afraid during the fireworks of a typical New Year’s Eve celebration. In fact, one survey by the RSPCA revealed that nearly half of all dogs showed signs of fear around loud noises. Noise can be overwhelming for your furry friend, but with a little planning, you can help him to feel safe and happily distracted during all the commotion.
Ideally, if you won’t be home, it’s a great idea to have a friend or sitter there to keep your dog company. If you will be with him during the fireworks, you’ll be able to help him remain calm by not making a fuss and by letting him see that you’re not concerned.
Begin his evening with a long walk or some energetic play to expend his surplus energy and to help him feel tired and relaxed. Next, get him settled in a safe and cozy place, like a travel kennel or his soft bed and provide a favorite soft toy, blanket, or item of clothing with your scent, for him to cuddle with.
Finally, discover the secret that all good pet parents know – that one of the most effective ways to help your dog calm down from stress and anxiety is by providing him with a tasty chew treat. Dogs love to chew and chewing is a natural stress reliever. A long-lasting treat can help to keep him mentally occupied by giving him something to work on.
