Try to work out what it is exactly that your dog is afraid of and then speak to your vet for guidance on what could make a difference long term. Alongside this, you could try some of the following techniques.
It is important to remember that managing behavioural issues can take a long time and patience, so do not lose heart if the problems do not disappear immediately.
The following could help your dog during fireworks, or other celebrations with loud noises:
Make a den – Many dogs have a favourite place to go and hide, identify where they like to go in your house and make sure they have access to it. You could also build a den for your pet to go, choose somewhere warm and away from the windows and create a safe cosy hideout with a comfy bed and access to water.
Background noise – Play music to try to distract them, but be careful that you do not cause your dog to associate that music with the fear.
Be cheerful – Be a good role model to them. If you can be with your dog when they encounter the stressful situation, ignore whatever it is that the dog is fearful of; you could even whistle or sing to show how unaffected you are!
Exercise – If possible, take your dog out for a walk to tire them out before they encounter the stressful situation.
