FEAR OF FIREWORKS
The fireworks start and the usually so happy dog crawls into a dark corner or paces around in fear. Unfortunately, many pet owners know this situation only too well. To be afraid of loud and unfamiliar noises is an innate protection mechanism, which under certain circumstances can however turn into an unnatural fear. The anxiety reactions can differ a lot. Many animals show physical symptoms such as heavy panting, trembling or salivating. Whining, barking and howling, as well as an unusually aggressive behaviour are other possible signs of anxiety. Some animals wander around restlessly, while others hide somewhere or seek shelter with their owners. However, these animals all have one thing in common, this time is tremendously stressful for them.
Many pet owners therefore ask themselves the question, how can I help my dog in such situations?
We have put together a few tips for you, which can support your dog to stay calm and relaxed during a fireworks show.
