Those loud bangs can send even the bravest pup scrambling for cover. But fear not, pawsome parents! Buddy’s Rescue is here to help your pup become a firework-facing hero!

Tips to Keep Your Dog Calm During Fireworks

Create a Safe Haven Before the fireworks start, designate a quiet, comfy space in your home as your pup’s calming den. This could be a crate lined with soft blankets, a designated room with familiar toys, or even your cozy bathroom (with the toilet lid down, of course!).

Turn Up the Tunes Drown out the booms with some calming music or white noise. Classical music or nature sounds can work wonders!

Distraction is Key Engage your pup with a yummy chew toy or a game of fetch before the fireworks start. A tired pup is a less stressed pup!

Thunder Shirt Power Consider a ThunderShirt or anxiety wrap for your pup. The gentle pressure can have a calming effect.

Natural Calming Treats Talk to your vet about natural calming treats or supplements that might help ease your pup’s anxiety.

Be a Calm Pack Leader Stay calm and reassuring yourself! Your pup picks up on your vibes. So, cuddle up with them in their safe space, offer gentle petting, and speak in a soothing voice.

Final Reminders

Never force your pup outside during fireworks. If they seem overly stressed, consult your vet for further advice. With a little planning and these pawsome tips, your pup can weather the firework storm and enjoy a stress-free summer celebration!

By following these tips, you’ll ensure that both you and your furry friend can enjoy the fireworks season with less stress and more comfort. Happy summer!
