Out of the Blue

Independence day is upon us tomorrow, so we're braced for fireworks. Here's hoping it's mild this year, we had a few go off somewhere off in the distance and my poor Hudson the wonder dog immediately wet the floor and proceeded to tremble for an hour, so any hopes we've had that she was getting better about this are pretty well dashed.

Thanks to this discussion...I just had an idea...

I think I'm going to take my 9 month old Golden to a fireworks show, atleast for a while depending on his patience.

I have always tried to expose him to everything I could in terms of environments, sounds, surfaces, as the puppy books suggest. He's definitely been around some loud noises too.

I figure this way, he will get a clear understanding from the onset what exactly these 4th of July noises are. Should set a decent foundation as long as I set him up for success.
I'll give him some plugs though, to lessen the impact.

It's a gun dog so should be fine - my Labrador couldn't care less about fireworks, he just keeps trying to beg food (hates balloons though too).
