Fireworks can be a scary experience for dogs, and may even cause them to run away — but this easy trick could help prevent your dog from getting scared at all.
Holidays, such as the 4th of July, can be terrifying days for dogs. There are lots of people, new smells and of course, lots and lots of loud noises. This New Year’s, fireworks will frighten countless dogs wherever they are set off.
Fireworks can make dogs want to run and hide, which can put them in potentially dangerous situations. It might seem like there’s no way to make your dog more comfortable when the fireworks start booming … but there is..
Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) recently tweeted about a quick and easy way to make your dogs feel safe when fireworks are going off. This simple wrap can be made with just a piece of fabric — and could possibly save your dogs life.
The wrap is designed to calm your dog so he doesn’t get the urge to run away, getting lost or running into traffic. If you don’t feel like making the wrap yourself, you can purchase a similar creation called the Thundershirt that has the same calming effects.
With this simple trick, you could help keep your dog feeling safe and much less anxious during fireworks and other loud holiday noises.
