If your dog is anxious when it comes to loud noises then New Years Eve can be a hard time for you and your dog. Here are a few tips to keep in mind so everyone can have an enjoyable evening. One of the most important things to remember is to keep your dog indoors, even if they like fireworks. Also be sure to close blinds or curtains to help dampen the noise. Turn on the television or stereo to help drown out the loud booms. If your dog is scared try not to reward their behavior by cuddling them. It is best to ignore them or distract them. Be sure to feed them before the festivities begin, a full tummy will make them sleepy and will aid them in calming down. Be sure their collar is on just in case they do get out. Hopefully these tips will help your dog be less anxious and everyone can have a happy and safe New Year!
