Fireworks are beautiful to watch but not so great to hear! There are plenty of organised firework displays in every community for the people who wish to take part! It’s not necessary to allow the sale of fireworks for personal use.

There are so many dogs that suffer terribly from the effects of firework displays and when they are being held in their neighbours gardens they have nowhere to escape to. 

Dogs have three basic strategies for dealing with fear: hiding, running away or fighting. However, you can’t fight firework noise by biting it; home is the safest place you can be, so there is nowhere to run; and even if you hide, you can still hear it!

When fireworks frighten them, dogs don’t know when the next bang is going to happen and have no way of coping with the fear it causes. They can’t predict it, control it, or escape it.

This becomes a major source of anxiety for many dogs, resulting in symptoms ranging from depression, through panic attacks, to aggression. Dogs that fear fireworks may also generalise that fear to other noises, becoming oversensitive and generally noise phobic.

This can reduce their quality of life!!

If you live your dog or are just an animal lover in general, please sign
