Bonfire night

Post by PaulD on Sun Nov 06 2016, 20:41

Well thank goodness that's over Surprised I might have turned into my dear departed dad and become a grumpy old curmudgeon but when are fireworks going to be banned from sale to the public? Big organised displays in out of town locations are ok but amateur displays in back gardens and especially idiots throwing fireworks around should be stopped. Our previous dogs have all been terrified of fireworks and one in particular had to be sedated as he used to literally wet and poo himself.  Our Mollie seemed to be coping quite well and even stopped to look at some of the admittedly spectacular effects but when she settled down for the night she was clearly frightened by some of the louder bangs. It seemed she was ok as long as she could see where the noise was coming from but when in the house she was very upset.

I couldn't agree more. This last week has been a nightmare with the constant loud bangs every night, our poor dog has been terrified!

I totally agree that private sales should be banned. Having said that, my Flo being deaf loves running up the garden watching them, I am blessed that I have a deaf Staffy in this regard and that she actually seems to enjoy the spectacle but... I have every sympathy with each and every one of you that have to comfort very upset dogs Sad

I think they should be banned too. Duke isn't bothered by the bangs because we get a lot of gun shooting near us so it must sound the same and he's used to it.
He does get scared if the smoke alarm goes off.....he's petrified of that noise.
