Fireworks – noise phobia

October 6, 2021

Every year the firework season creates heated debate between those who own animals and those who don’t.  This is particularly so for those owners whose animal is reactive to the noises fireworks create.

Whatever your opinion, it is a fact that for some animals the firework season is a terrifying time.  This creates stress for owners as it’s just so heartbreaking to see their pet in distress.

Although it’s accepted that we want to enjoy our lives, we should still make sure that we are doing everything we can to make the lives of the animals we have living with us as #fearfree as possible.

A full, noise desensitising programme is what we would recommend.  It requires time, patience and understanding. A programme should also begin early in the year to provide the time needed as rushing the programme won’t have the desired effect.

There are lots of other things owners can do to make the night more manageable. For more information, hints and tips, download our helpful leaflets:
