FIREWORKS MAKING YOUR DOG(S) ANXIOUS?


It is the season for fireworks again. And while we humans enjoy fireworks, our four legged companions often do not. 

Here are some tips to help keep your dog safe:
  • Put a Thundershirt on your dog at least half an hour before the fireworks are due to start. 
  • Make a safe den for your dog to retreat to if he or she feels scared. Alternatively, let your dog take refuge under furniture and include an old, unwashed piece of clothing like a woolly jumper so that your dog can smell your scent and feel comfortable.
  • Distract your dog from the noise by having the TV or the radio switched on.
  • Try to act and behave as normal, as your dog will pick up on any odd behaviour. Remain calm, happy and cheerful as this will send positive signals to your dog. Reward calm behaviour with doggie treats or playing with toys of interest.
  • Check where and when displays are being held in your local area.  Also ask your neighbours to let you know if they are planning anything.
  • Consult your vet if your dog has any health problems or is taking any medication before giving remedies to help him cope with fireworks night, and always follow the manufacturers' instructions.
  • Feed your dog a while before you expect any disturbances, as once the fireworks start your dog may be too anxious to eat.
  • Walk your dog before dusk.  It may be some time before it's safe to venture outside again for your dog to relieve himself.
  • Make sure you shut all doors and windows in your home and don't forget to draw the curtains. This will block out any scary flashes of light and reduce the noise level of fireworks. Don't forget to block off cat flaps to stop dogs (and cats) escaping.
  • Shut your dog safely inside a room before opening the front door.
  • Your dog might choose to hide under the bed if he or she comes to you for comfort, make sure that you give it to him/her. Ignoring your dog would only make things worse as he or she wouldn't understand your withdrawal from them.
  • Keep a collar and ID tag on your dog. 

And DO NOT:
  • Take your dog to a firework display, even if your dog does not bark or whimper, don't assume he or she is happy. Excessive yawning and panting can indicate that your dog is stressed.
  • Tie your dog up outside while fireworks are being let off. 
  • Assume your garden is escape proof.  If your dog needs to go out keep him on a lead just in case.
  • Leave your dog on his own or in a separate room from you.
  • Try to force your dog to face his fears - he'll just become more frightened.
  • Forget to top up the water bowl.  Anxious dogs pant more and get thirsty.
  • Change routines more than necessary, as this can be stressful for some dogs.
  • Try and tempt him out if he does retreat, as this may cause more stress.
  • Tell your dog off! This will only make your pet more distressed.

BLESSED RAMADAN TO ALL OUR MUSLIM FRIENDS



Thunderdogs Malaysia would like to wish all our Muslim friends a Blessed Ramadhan.

Time: 9am - 4pm
Venue: HELP University College (Main Block - Foyer)

  

Please do come visit our booth to get a Thundershirt for your dog... Or just come and talk to us to find out more about how the Thundershirt can help your dog overcome its fears and anxieties.


AniHELP is organised by the students of HELP University College to promote awareness of responsible pet ownership and prevention of cruelty to animals. Activities will include dogathons, free grooming sessions, talks, games and loads more!

We also have some freebies for the first 10 people that purchase the Thundershirt at our booth!


So what is the Thundershirt? 

ThunderShirt uses gentle hugging to calm your dog or cat. With its patented design, ThunderShirt’s gentle, constant pressure has a dramatic calming effect for most dogs and cats if they are anxious, fearful or overexcited.


Based on surveys completed by over two thousand customers, over 80% of dogs and cats show significant improvement in symptoms when using ThunderShirt. ThunderShirt is already helping hundreds of thousands of dogs and cats around the world and is recommended by thousands of veterinarians and trainers.
 

How does ThunderShirt work? Experts believe that pressure has a calming effect on the nervous system, possibly by releasing a calming hormone like endorphins. Using pressure to relieve anxiety in people and animals has been a common practice for years. 


So do come on over and have a chat with us! See you there...
