There are loads going off tonight, I hope this is not the run up to Bonfire night or I will have one very stressed dog soon.

He has been barking all night at evey little sound and is driving me mad!

Had to shut all the windows in the house and close the curtains in the hope he will settle down

With my old dog I used to keep him on lead during fireworks and chill out on the couch with him watching TV (on of his favourite things) and when a firework blew up nearby I could stop him bolting in panic, invite him back on the couch and relax him back down with a good massage and maybe a bit of chicken when he'd calmed. He eventually got the idea that running and hiding wasn't the only way to survive a 'firework attack', simply relaxing on the couch also worked!

Although he did go through a short stage later on of standing at the open back door during fireworks and barking into the night as if to tell the sky to shut up!

I was lucky with Toby last year he wasn't bothered by them at all.....didn't flinch if they went off when we went for walks. Get the feeling Caesar won't be as brave......he can be scared of his own shadow!

I'm extremely lucky in that neither Ruby or Elsdon are bothered by them. But Elli used to be petrified of them and I really do understand how frightened your dogs get. Ought to ban them except at proper displays, can't just be our dogs that they frighten the life out of.
