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

Cornwall Life - - A DOG’S LIFE -

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.
