Dog School Manchester Bonfire night can be a really scary time for a lot of dogs! Make sure to get them used to the sound of fireworks and bangs early on so we can gradually get them used to it. Nellie here is just sat here with a yummy chew toy whilst having some Firework sounds on in the background. At the minute it's nice and quiet and just background noise, but over the next few weeks this sound will get louder so she's getting used to it but always while something good is happening (a chew, a kong, playtime etc) Nellie will then make a positive association with these noises and hopefully fireworks won't be quite so scary! Email dogschoolmanchester@dogstrust.org.uk now to find out more details about how to help your dog settle during this time! . . . . . . #positivereinforcement #chew #kong #fireworks #dogsandfireworks #puppy #reward #dogsandfireworks #puppiesofinstagram #dachshund
