1️⃣ Remove the visual stimulation of fireworks.
 
2️⃣ You be calm. Dogs are in-tune with our emotions. Don’t make a big deal out of the fireworks.
 
3️⃣ Consider anti-anxiety tools… Thundershirts or calming pheromones. Talk to your vet!
 
4️⃣ A full belly! Empty stomach is a stressor you can help your dog avoid.
5️⃣ Potty break before the fireworks begin.
 
6️⃣ In the day… play, play, PLAY! A tired dog will most likely be a calm dog, so exercise.
 
7️⃣ Give your dog something to do for the evening. My pup loves her Kong with frozen peanut butter!
