Summer time means fun for us and our pets in the warm weather and holidays; but for many dogs it is also a time for scary events like fireworks and thunderstorms. When these occur, it can be difficult to change your pet’s minds if they have decided they are scared. This is one situation where preparation is very important. Have a plan for dealing with your anxious pet before the storm starts or the holiday comes. For some this is knowing where to put their pets to provide comfort or desensitization, for some it is having anxiety medication on hand, and for others it means starting a behavioural modification program well in advance. For help finding the right solution, have a look at this link from our website or (as always) give us a call.
