Try to stay calm
Even if your dog is freaked out by the sound of fireworks, seeing you at ease might make them feel the same way. Dogs often follow your lead, so your reaction can be a cue to how they should act.
If possible, try to be at home with your pet as their anxiety might get worse alone. It’s also recommended to keep them inside, where the noise is less intense and where they’re less likely to run away. Ideally, they should have their own space for the night, where they know they’re safe and can experience a peaceful night alone.
Give them something else to think about! Dogs don’t know fireworks won't harm them, and the loud noise suggests that they are in danger. Play white noise or calm classical music (there’s even music made specifically to calm dogs on YouTube). A good distraction might also come in the form of a toy, our Tux Dog Toy is made so you can hide treats inside it, they’ll be entertained for sure (and will have a treat by the end).
