Launa's dog louie hides under bed when he is scared
Some of us won’t be out celebrating, I’ll be at home with my dog who will be freaked out from the fireworks.

When I win the lottery, I’m going to buy a neighborhood, and make a rule that it will be a fire-work free zone – and no one can light off any within a 20 mile radius, then I’m going to invite everyone who has to deal with the same thing I do on holidays that have fireworks…. my dog is petrified of them.
That is a picture of my dog Louie under the bed during fireworks.  He’s so scared.
New Years and July 4th I am home with Louie.  I can’t leave him, so it really sucks.  But I’m a good dog mom, so I do what I have to for him.
There are lots of simple things you can do to help your pet deal with fireworks. By preparing in advance before fireworks start your pet will be better able to cope with the noises.
  • Walk them during daylight hours to avoid times when fireworks are likely to be set off
  • Close windows and curtains to muffle the sound of fireworks
  • Put on some music or tv to mask the firework sounds
  • Create a quiet space where your dog can feel in control
  • Create some hiding places around your home
