News staff re­porter CASTEL­LÓN city’s Pub­lic Health department has ini­ti­ated a free course ded­i­cated to help dogs lose their fear of fire­works.

By en­list­ing the help of dog trainers, coun­cil­lor Mary Car­men Rib­era hopes the pets ‘over­come this in­vol­un­tary fear and re­gain their con­fi­dence’ in a city where ‘dogs can hear fire­works go off every now and then al- most the en­tire year round, and con­stantly dur­ing the Mag­dalena fi­es­tas, which can lead to them de­vel­op­ing anx­i­ety, fear and other pho­bias that in turn com­pro­mise their well­be­ing’.

The aim of the course is there­fore to ‘pro­mote an­i­mal well­be­ing dur­ing the whole year so they can face the fi­es­tas the best way pos­si­ble’ in­stead of suf­fer­ing from the afore­men­tioned is­sues.
