Comments Off on Preparing early for New Years bangs!

Did your pet display signs of anxiety over the Firework period?

If so, act now!

New Years Eve may seem like a long way away (with Christmas coming up first), but it is important to start preparing soon. With each exposure to loud bangs like fireworks, pets are very likely to become more distressed. The sooner something is done to help, the easier it will be.

Using a desensitisation program, like the one detailed below, can help stop their anxiety and reactions escalating, and even reverse it too.

Desensitisation is where you expose your pet to really low levels of firework sounds, gradually increasing the volume. This allows them to get used to it slowly, so that the big explosion of New Years doesn’t turn them into quivering wrecks!
