Top Tips from Friars Moor for Fireworks Night

Dogs
  • Ensure all windows and doors are shut. Close the curtains and turn on the TV or play music to muffle the sound of the fireworks
  • Consider distracting your dog from the fireworks by giving them a chew, toy or playing a game with them
  • Ensure your dog has a safe, warm area to hide away in and consider using an ADAPTIL® diffuser nearby
  • Walk your dog early in the evening when it is still light outside and remember it is now law to have your dog micro-chipped. This will help to reunite your dog if they become scared and run off
  • NEVER punish your dog for displaying unwanted behaviour as a result of fireworks going off – this will only
    make them more distressed
  • Call us to discuss using a pheromone product and other options leading up to fireworks nigh
Cats
    • Keep your cat indoors after dark
    • Ensure all windows and doors are shut. Close the curtains and turn on the TV or play music to muffle the sound of the fireworks
    • Make sure there is a litter tray, water bowl and have some treats to hand. If you have more than one cat, have a feeding station and litter tray for each cat plus a spare one
    • Ensure your cat has a safe, warm area to hide away in and consider using a FELIWAY® diffuser nearby
    • Feed your cat early in the evening when it is still light outside and ensure it is micro-chipped
    • Separate your cat’s resources so feeding stations, water bowls and litter trays are not next to each other
