New Years Eve

For most people New Years Eve is one of the best times of the year. For some dogs it is the worst.

The day after New Years so many dogs find their way into the pound. Not only does it cost you a small fortune to get them back it’s 100% preventable.

If you know that your dog is noise/fireworks phobic it’s time to prevent the problem now. Give your dog somewhere quiet and secure to go away from the noise. Make sure there is no way for them to escape onto the street. If it is a severe phobia talk to your vet about medications than can help ease your dogs panic. Remember though, do NOT pat/reassure/baby your dog in the middle of a panic attack. This will only make the problem worse.

These are all patches for the leak however. For a long term fix speak to your dog trainer about a permanent fix for the phobia.
