News post – Catch-23 No. 866 New Year sundering

Many dogs, our rescue beagle included, are not the biggest fans of fireworks. My dog trainer friends tell me noises like thunder and fireworks are like giant booming barks from the sky, telling dogs they are doing something very wrong and they don’t know what that is. The best way to get a dog out of their storm or fireworks fears is to carry on as if nothing is wrong. If you console them too much, they’ll think it’s right to be frightened of the noise.
