Happy Safe November 5th Fireworks Night...

How to calm dogs during fireworks

  • Close windows and curtains to muffle the sound of fireworks.

  • Put on some music or TV to mask the firework sounds

  • Create a quiet space where your dog can feel in control

  • Create some hiding places around your home

  • Walk them during the daylight

Small animals

  • Partly cover outside cages and pens with blankets so an area is soundproofed and hidden, but allow another area for the animals to look out

  • Provide bedding small animals can burrow in

  • Consider bringing them indoors – this will need to be done gradually so plan ahead


  • Provide hiding places in your home

  • Cats can become more stressed if they’re outside during fireworks

  • Microchip your cats in case they’re startled and escape outside
