How to Calm a Dog During Rockets

Cómo Calmar a un Perro durante los Cohetes

Fireworks are used in some celebrations of the year, so it is important to know how to act so that it does not affect your pets.

The sound of rockets or fireworks is likely to affect dogs more than cats. Since they are very sensitive to these noises, they may be restless and very afraid, even after they have finished. However, it must also be taken into account that fireworks are usually launched at night, so cats do have sharper vision and night flashes can make them quite uncomfortable.

And since we don't like them to suffer from this situation, we share some tips to help your pet cope with this situation.

Tips to Calm a Dog

  • Spend time with your pet and play games before they start shooting off fireworks. Running and playing next to you will help him relieve stress.

  • If he is left alone at home, do not tie him up or lock him up in a small space and try to keep him in a quiet place. You don't want him to freak out and run.

  • Give him a snack or toy to chew on and allow him to calm his anxiety. You can also choose to provide a soothing dog treat.

  • Try playing classical music, that will calm him down too.

Tips to Calm a Cat

  • Placing a cardboard box with a blanket inside is an excellent hiding place for your cat to take refuge and feel safe and relax.

  • If you stay home alone, close your doors and windows tightly to prevent it from escaping and getting lost. A stunned pet can lose control and location.
  • There is the option of using relaxants as they help reduce fear.


At Waggy's we believe that being informed is a great way to take care of your pet. Since for us, as for you, your health and well-being is the most important thing.
