Default Did your dog mind the firecrackers?

They started around here about 9pm ! and Lily started to pant real hard and became an instant velcro dog. What do any of you do when your dog is afraid of something like firecrackers that keep happening hour after hour? The worst part was I had to take her outside to pee (on a leash, we don't have a fenced in yard).... well, she decided, no thank you! I can hold it and pulled me like a little clydsdale right back to the door. Finally, later she managed to put her big girl panties on and take a quick one in the near corner of the yard.

I really feel for her and all of the dogs that are skittish with loud noises like firecrackers and thunderstorms. Anyway, did any of you have problems with new year's eve and your dogs?

Our dogs were mad as all get out. Bella wanted out badly to be able to inspect things, but we wouldn't let her until they stopped. They barked, they whined, they glared at us for not letting them out. It's pretty annoying.

I don't think so. We were both pooped from our playdate and slept soundly. If he was bothered by them, he didn't wake me up.

Trixie HATES ANY loud noise, if you pop a bag, or clap your hands..she will run to her room scared. I found her on the hwy when she was a pup, so maybe that has something to do with why she don't like loud sounds. If it keeps up, she will also shake.

The other dogs, and my new puppy on the other hand..Dont even notice anything..they just keep playing/sleeping.

harv had half a xanax before the fireworks really got started, so he was just a little anxious. he was up and pacing a bit, but not so stressed that he couldn't pee or wouldn't take cookies. without his drugs he's a total disaster during thunderstorm season and on firecracker holidays.

edited to add: the other two dogs really couldn't care less.

Jena didn't mind them at all except that she had a little trouble taking a nap. She eventually did fall asleep though.

Morgan was completely terrified of them, but Winston and Dance were fine. In fact, they didn't even seem to notice anything was going on.
