Dog Behaviour. Dog Training. Guy Fawkes and Fear of Noises, Part One.

Ask for ‘tricks’ to be performed at this ’stressful’ time. Shower your dog with praise and affection and some treats if the ‘trick’ is worthy when performed. The ‘trick’ is what you are praising for, not any reaction.
Recordings of fireworks/other ’scary’ noises can be played while your dog is doing something fun. I would recommend downloading the ‘Sound Proof Puppy App’ for pets off ITunes or Android. It has been developed by a vet nurse/trainer, with noises that typically can bring about a fear response and comes with detailed instructions for its use. You can reward relaxation/no/less response.
When using a super tasty treat, if your dog is not accepting this treat, he/she is too stressed and the intensity of the noise needs to be decreased.
This process is about weeks of training, amounting to about 10 minutes a day of time with your dog, Selina McIntyre, Dog Behavioural Consultant & Dog Trainer, Dogs Best Friend.
