The 4th of July is right around the corner and wondering what you can do for your pup? I great way to help the situation is by playing the following you tube video for your pup to help desensitize them.
Once the video opens you can right click on the video to loop it so it can play continuously.
For the next couple of days play this video off and on throughout the day while giving them a tasty treat (bully stick, Kong filled with yummy treats, etc.) at first playing it quietly and slowly making it louder with each time it is played.
On the day of the fireworks keep your puppy in a place that they are comfortable in (suggestion…inner room of the house where the sound is more muffled). You can also place the puppy in that room while you are giving them yummy treats and listening to the recordings leading up to July 4th. On July 4th you will want to start playing the video softly with every passing hour increasing the sound as the dog is feeling at ease. If you find your pup getting anxious you may want to increase the sound at a slower rate. By the time the fireworks are getting ready to start the volume should be at the highest your speakers can handle. Once the real fireworks start your pup won’t even notice them as they will be blended with the sound that is already playing.
