Hello

My Gini used to hate the fireworks she would try and hide somewhere. As for my other dog Mr B he hates them too he shakes shivers and dribbles.

They should be banned or just sold for 1 day and no more, We had some going off last night why??? sad.gif sad.gif mad.gif

Cheers

Cause major problems for only one of my 4 dogs. She shivers, shakes, pants and dribbles. They should be banned.

Yes - especially with our whippet X, she shakes, follows us around like a shadow, dribbles and pants. It's horrific to watch. Personally, i feel as if they should be band, as the distress they cause is un real. Our jackrussell is scared of the sound of a bubble popping, let alone a fire work!

Have an old Lhasa (13yrs) who absolutely hates fireworks.... shivering and shaking and wandering around.

Vet now supplies a "chill pill" for him for firework night to try & keep him calm.

Voted No - but to be fair where we live there aren't any large displays and the neighbours don't have them either so my dogs have never been exposed to a "proper" round of fireworks

Not at all...Sheebs will stand and watch them with you....was bothered about how Darcy would react, but with Sheebs being so laid back, Darcy doesn't bother either. wub.gif
My Mum and Dads rough collie hates them though...shakes, paces and drools all night

none of mine were affected much by fireworks,they would look at me to see my reaction ,so long as i wasnt alarmed ,then it must be ok ,would usually draw the curtains and turn the radio up a bit to mask the sound a little ,one or two were a little nervous of lightening flashes rather than the sound,but the same behaviour and myself being very calm and relaxed about it,seemed to help them
