Beware the bangs!
Mousehole is famous for its fabled feline resident, but it can be the perfect place for canines too, writes Alexandra Pearce who also offers up timely advice on caring for your dogs during Bonfire Night
your dog is on a lead and is microchipped; spooked dogs are prone to running away. Create a safe space. Your dog may want to hide somewhere, such as under furniture - let them go where they will feel safe. If they want your attention, then give it; a cuddle may be just the comfort they need. Close doors, windows, curtains and blinds.
Offer distractions. Play music or the television. Play with your dog and give them treats when they display relaxed behaviour.
Seek help. Don’t let your dog suffer. See a vet or behavioural therapist for professional advice on how to support your dog.
