Fireworks Night! Time to hide under the table!!

...that's your dog... not you... well - perhaps you don't like the loud banging and whizzing sounds of fireworks either but we're writing this post primarily with the canine members of your household in mind :)
Dogs don't understand all the noises and flashes in the sky at this time of year and frankly it can scare them.  Unfortunately fireworks don't only get let off around 5th November anymore either!  People tend to use fireworks year round for all sorts of occasions.  So, is there anything we can ge doing to minimise any stress that they might cause our canine pals?
We were interested to read on www.dogclub.co.uk that there is now a CD available that simulates the random, unpredictable sounds of fireworks which you can play in the weeks leading up to Bonfire Night to desensitise them.  Eventually your pet will get used to the sounds and ignore them.
They recommend that while playing the CD you distract your pet by playing with him or giving him some training.
Don't forget that dogs love to have their own space and at potentially stressful times this is even more important - make sure your dog has a safe, quiet and comfy place which is just for him.
There is more advice on the www.dogclub.co.uk website which we would recommend you visiting if you are worried about how your pet might cope with the festivities of Bonfire Night.
Enjoy getting wrapped up warm and visiting a display - but don't forget to make sure your dog is prepared and as calm as he possibly can be by getting prepared.
Here is a video to help you desensitise your dog to fireworks from www.dogsandfireworks.com

Just what I needed!

"Wow! The Dicky Bag is exactly what I needed! The clip saves me carrying the bag in my hand, the seal stops it from smelling, and it looks great!"

Soooo useful!

"I love my Dicky Bag! It's so much nicer than having to carry a plastic bag around, plus the neoprene design means it doubles as my stubby holder! Awesome!"

Best gift ever!

"I got my Dicky Bag as a Christmas gift and it's one of the best things I've been given! I'll definitely be getting one for my dog-loving friends and re-stocking on Dicky Disks and bags... in fact I'm going to order some now!"

Great for carrying... anything!

Just wanted to say thank you for my Camo style Dicky Bag - as well as being ideal for walking Muttley, it's perfect for carrying extra paintballing ammo!

Miranda's Windy Holiday

Just come back from a somewhat windy and sometimes wet holiday in Devon. I asked for the dicky bag to be delivered to the rental property we were staying in. They were there ready and waiting (I purchased two, one for a friend). Read more

Top Rated Product!

I recently purchased a dicky bag (dog poo bag!) online as it seemed the answer to all of my poop scooping problems (no bins on walks, clutching a tesco carrier bag blatantly full of crap - you know how it is! )

Excellent product

We love these messages - even the professionals are using our dog walking bags! Smile

"To the Dicky bag team.  I am a professional dog walker and  have bought products before which you use to carry your dogs No2's in and have given up with them with in a couple of days as they have always been so impractical to use.  I must say I have been using my Dicky bag for 3 weeks now and love it!

I like the idea of carrying spare bags in the top although I take them off the roll before hand and push them in to the slot.  The bag is discreet and so much better than when I had pooh bags swinging from my hip! Read more
It's hard to stop people borrowing it! I won a Dicky bag at alocal dog show, having never heard of the company before I didn't know just how great this product was. We take our bag to every show,walk and journey and it really is brilliant. You wouldn't know what it contained and I honestly couldn't live without our now! My mum and sister are having one each for christmas they are amazed. I keep having to ask for my bag back from my sister who tries stealing it on a regular basis!
Thanks to all at Dicky Bags for making our life easier, less embarrasing and more convient. Dicky bags make being a responsible dog owner stylish and cool!
