Use the fireworks as a learning opportunity for your dog.

If my dog were afraid of fireworks, I would make sure to something fun every time I heard fireworks.

I would bring out all kinds of treats and goodies like pieces of hot dogs or chicken and some tennis balls and play fetch in the hall or work on training, rewarding him for any calm behavior.

I would ignore anxious behavior such as panting or whining and distract him with favorite toys, games, obedience training and tasty treats.

If you absolutely have to take your dog outside for a quick bathroom break during fireworks or thunder, make sure you have a collar she can’t slip through. Dogs that are freaked out can easily slip through nylon collars, leather collars and even harnesses. Of course, make sure your dog is wearing ID tags. A good collar to have for safety is a martingale collar because it’s difficult for a dog to slip out.

A dog that is extremely anxious around fireworks can learn there is no reason to be afraid. It just takes a lot of creativity, time and patience. The more fearful your dog is, the more important it is for you to be a calm, relaxed leader.
