    It's the 31st we need to prepare for here. I'll just make sure I get home early, close the curtains and blinds and use the tv or stereo to drown out the noise, dogs will be oblivious to what's happening outside.

    Hi Brian

    Sorry, I don't have any ideas for you as my Rosie seems to be the only dog in the world that LOVES fireworks!!!!

    As soon as she hears a bang, she's standing at the back door with her tail wagging, begging to go out so she can investigate!!!

    So it seems I am going to have the opposite problem to you - one hyper dog wanting to go out every 30 seconds to see what's going on and join in all the fun!

    Don't worry, when I do let her out, she is under constant supervision and she can't escape from the back garden (6ft high fence all round).

    I hope you have a calm and peaceful night.

    It's already started on our estate! Poor Ollie was terrified going out to toilet. He's fine indoors, I close the blinds and turn up the tv. He cuddles up with me on the couch and is oblivious to whats happens outside. I'm dreading friday night tho.

    I didnt find the DAP any use for my dogs (but I know people who did) I use valarian compound liquid from www.dorwest.com it's a bit smelly but you can either put drops in food or squirt right down the throat. Seems to do the trick for Cass. There has been the odd banger around for the past few weeks & Sparks dosnt seem too bothered by them.

    My last dog Leo was absolutly terrified & he had to take diazapam for a couple of days around halloween (we don't do 5th Nov here).

    India and Geordie were traumatized by our next door neighbor's kids' fireworks years ago when they were one year old on the 4th of July, and we were away for the day. We came home before dark, and they were both in a state, even though they were inside the house (some windows were open).

    This is how we handled it: we did not feed them their normal dinner, but after dark we took them out in the back garden on leads and fed them high value treats as the city fireworks display was happening nearby. They calmed down very quickly, and looked to us for goodies with every boom and bang!

    I don't know if we were just lucky, but fireworks do not phase them at all now.

    Chocolate, on the other hand, does not like fireworks, so we keep her inside with the windows closed and the TV on. When she needs to go out, we keep her on a lead and feed her treats to try to make it a positive experience.
