Dealing With Fireworks as Easy as Right-Click, Download

If you're in an area where you can't completely shield a pet from fireworks by keeping her inside far from windows, or drowning out the sound, there's a possible solution to get her used to the distant booms.

While it's possible to purchase fireworks CDs for this purpose, you can download some for free online, like these when you right-click. To use, play in the house quietly and slowly work up to a louder volume. (The same can be done for sirens if you live near a hospital.) Have you ever desensitized a pet in this fashion?

I think my dog is kinda getting used to them. Interesting idea.

Not yet. Our pup has a serious thunderstorm phobia (that we think was triggered by fireworks last 4th of July promptly followed by weeks of thunderstorms) and our vet recommended that we try this. We just got a thunderstorm cd a week ago, so we're planning to start the desensitization training next week. Hopefully, it'll work because I really hate the idea of having to give any more meds than necessary.
