Here are tips on how to help your dog get through the things they fear the most…

On night’s when there are usually fireworks, such as Bonfire night or New Year Eve you can:

 

  • Turn on the TV or radio to drown out the loud bangs going off outside
  • Classical, dance or reggae music have been prove to naturally calm dogs down
  • Close the curtains so your dog cannot see the fireworks outside
  • Give your dog plenty of exercise beforehand to tire them out so they will be more likely to rest during the time when fireworks are likely to be set off.
  • Give your dog an enclosed area (den) with their bed, blankets, water, food, treats, favourite toy(s) etc to help them feel secure, calm them down and muffle the noises.
  • Aversive responses (fear-related) motivate escape and avoidance, sometimes the ‘Fight or Flight’ response can cause them to become aggressive.
  • Make sure your dog can’t escape if there is a sudden noise (‘fight or flight’). Check their microchip and collar tag details are all up to date just in case your dog happens to run away,
  • Make sure you walk your dog during the day, for obvious reasons. Sometimes people set some fireworks off before it is even dark (pointless in my eyes). Try to walk your dog early afternoon just in case. You don’t want to be out doors walking your dog and someone prematurely setting off a firework nearby. In other words, keep your dog indoors when fireworks are likely to be set off.
  • Try not to fuss over your dog too much when they’re scared (hard, I know!) as this will make things worse in the long run. Reassuring them can reinforce their fear. It is best to act normal around your dog when they become fearful or stressed.
  • Never punish your dog while they are scared – they have enough to deal with at the moment and it will only make matter worse
  • Keep windows and doors closed to muffle the loudness of the bangs
  • If your dog needs to go out to toilet when the fireworks are going off, go out with the dog to help them feel more secure.
  • If you have a dog that is extremely fearful, it is in their best interests for you to stay home during storms or when fireworks are being set off when you can.
  • Try playing with your dog, either with their favourite toy or a new toy, to keep them  distracted (ignoring the fireworks yourself).
  • If you have, or know, another dog who isn’t scared of fireworks keep them together. It may help your dog if they see another dog who isn’t bothered about what is happening outside.
  • Make sure your dog has plenty of fresh water on offer during these stressful times. When a dog gets worked up they burn more energy so can become dehydrated quicker.
  • You can alter the negative emotional response to a stimulus or trigger by using counter conditioning and desensitisation. The reduction in anxiety or distress is reason enough to create a positive emotional response. (Coming soon… Habituation/Socialisation Schedule to work on your dogs fears)
  • Make your dog a body/scarf wrap that helps to reduce anxiety. Can be made from a scarf, bandage or even a pair of leggings! (If your dog doesn’t like it take it off to avoid stressing them further) Here’s how to put it on:
  1. Hold material horizontally in front of chest
  2. Bring up the material and cross over at the back of the dogs neck
  3. Bring the material down under the dog and cross over
  4. Bring the material back up towards (but not on) the base of the tail
  5. Tie away from the dog’s spine
  6. Your finger should be able to move freely beneath the wrap. If it can’t the wrap is tied too tight.
  • Give your dog a relaxing massage

Adaptil Spray & Refills for Dogs

ADAPTIL® can help your dog to adjust better to modern living, by creating a supportive environment to help ease behaviour problems, caused by every day stressful events. This can transform your lives by bringing you closer together. ADAPTIL® is a synthetic copy of the dog appeasing pheromone naturally released by a mother dog to comfort and reassure her new puppies. This pheromone has been shown to have the same comforting effect on puppies and adult dogs in stressful situations, when released through ADAPTIL® products.

Adaptil is non-sedative, non-systemic and as such can be used alongside other types of medications.

The ADAPTIL® products have been improved to ensure that dogs and owners around the world are provided with the best support.

Everyday events can mean everyday unhappiness

Simple things can upset your puppy or dog – new people, car rides, being left alone, fireworks or even a baby being brought into the home. The visible behaviours that you notice can be a result of your dog trying to cope:

  • Drooling and licking of lips
  • Excessive barking and whimpering
  • Soiling in the home
  • Panting & pacing
  • Trying to escape
  • Seeking out owner
  • Destroying household items

To help puppies grow into well-socialised dogs, it is essential to help them feel confident and secure whilst they are learning about the world around them.

Furthermore, in dogs of any age, stress-related issues which remain untreated, may cause health problems.

ADAPTIL® has been scientifically proven to have the same reassuring effect on puppies and adult dogs. It is particularly useful for new or challenging situations.

Over 28 published clinical papers support the use of ADAPTIL®.

It has been used by vets and pet owners worldwide for 14 years.

ADAPTIL® is safe, easy to use and convenient.

Diffuser/Refill

The diffuser releases the comforting pheromone in the local environment and should be plugged into the room where the dog spends most of it’s time, perfect for helping your dog feel confident and supported in their environment.

Adaptil refills can be purchased to replenish the diffuser every 4 weeks. The diffuser plug should be changed every 6 months.

Ingredients

GABA (Gamma-aminobutyric acid) – The main inhibitory neurotransmitter in humans and dogs. It plays a central role in relaxation and limits the nerve cell activity in areas of the brain associated with anxiety.

L-tryptophan – An amino-acid which increases serotonin synthesis. It has been shown to reduce aggressiveness in dogs and stress related behaviours.

L-theanine – An amino-acid which increases the release of GABA and also inhibits the binding of the excitatory transmitter L-glutamic acid to its receptors. It has been shown to reduce anxiety and improve learning abilities.

B Vitamins (B1, B3, B6, B8, B12) – Are essential nutrients, indispensable for normal functioning of the brain system. As a group they help the body cope with the effects of stress.
