How to Prepare Your Dog for Fireworks
Fireworks are supposed to mean celebration, but for many animals and pet owners, it can mean stress and anxiety. It's time to put an end to that! With July 4th right around the corner, I want to show you how to prepare your dog for fireworks, and to make sure your dog stays calm!

      Have you ever seen a dog enjoy the fireworks? I didn’t either before my 2 year old really got excited and didn’t wanted to go back in. We did anyway, but he right away showed me that he wanted to go back out and watch. It was so hilarious and i was blown away. But, we did spend his whole life ‘addressing’ sounds and that calms him down. So he knew the word for the loud noices and just went right back to playing when I said that. He loved looking at it with me 🥰. I asked him to go inside again and he did not wanna go haha. Only when the whole family went back in 🥰

      I hope you get to see my message. After a day of shooting guns my dog became terrified of loud noises loud bangs. Anything I can do for him. It breaks my heart seeing his face full of fear. It has gone down to him scratching and tearing up my garage door to get inside because of his fear. I live in a town where people just light up fireworks randomly trough out the year. Please help.

    • Jackie

      @Nerea I guess try what he recommends ? The week before the 4th exercise your dog for 2-3 hours, get home and he will be hungry. Put some firecracker noises and waive a really high reward treat in front of the dog. They will take it bcuz they are starving ... I have yet to try this with my dog also just pants, runs, and hides :(

      César Millan, my wife and I just adopt our new family member, Blue an Staffordshire Bull terrier, about 3 weeks ago. We both have been watching so many of your videos, especially myself, and we’re learning so much. I, myself, watch a lot of your videos everyday. Not only am I learning about dogs and animals, but I’m learning a lot about myself. Own a dog is a HUGE responsibility. I never knew that until I started watching your videos and learning exactly what a dog needs. Thankfully, my wife and I love exercising so Blue helps us stay active and incorporate him into our walks and our hogs at the park. But, honestly, I find myself become a better Man, a husband, a better human, thanks to your encouragement and advice. I could go on and on but it would been so much to write on here. Thanks for all your words and knowledge you share. God bless you and your familia. Now, I’m going to finish watching your video on how to help my dog with separation anxiety 😄.

    My 80lb dog crawls up me during fireworks and lightning and tries to sit on my shoulder like he is a bird. My other dog has been coming to the range with since a puppy. I think thats why he just chills during loud noises. The other one, we rescued and is so gun shy that i would never be able to take him with me.

    I have never had a problem with my dogs being afraid of fireworks. Always introduced them in to it from a distance so they don't need to feel the need to flee. That resulted in me having dogs being curious or ignore when fireworks go off, never fear. It's funny to watch a big german shepherd stand with paws on the railing of a balcony watching fireworks.

    Cesar. I live in a suburban neighborhood. We have a neighbor who likes the the boom BOOM kind of fireworks. 1/4 acre lots. His backyard faces ours. The ground shakes. The neighbor gets off on it. It sounds louder than a shotgun. It starts early May and goes thru October. And no routine. No noise for a week. Then boom BOOM. For hours. My 9 year old Airedale goes into full panic mode. Tries to do flight. Runs into walls. Knocked over a t.v., etc. It's like the dog goes into a trance. I tried the food thing. He doesn't notice. He just wants to get away. Thundershirt - no effect. Even different meds - no effect. The soft music no effect. The neighbor guy thinks it's funny. Says "it doesn't bother his dogs. My dog is a pansy". You know the type. So I have an extra large kennel in the kitchen. When we hear the first boom my Airedale comes to get me and I put him in his kennel. We call it his house. His calm place as you would say. When the neighbor guy finally goes to bed after midnight I let Diego (the Airedale) out. He's back to being happy go lucky. We also have a schnauzer. She's fine with the noise. I think I'm doing all I can at this point. Your thoughts?

    Before I knew of Cesar I would take my dogs out when they were small & take them for a walk when the fireworks were going off in the background to a familiar walking spot & not make a fuss, just carry on talking to them the same way I normally do. It was always a place where they could see the fireworks in the sky far away. I never looked down on them to make eye contact to see if they were ok I’d just walk them as normal. (I had taken them for a long walk previous to this one) & pop them back in the car & keep everything as normal. It seems to have done them some good as not one of my dogs past or present have ever had any problems with any natural or unnatural noise outside. When I had one more than one I’d take the younger one out with the older one so they had the support of the more experienced dog, which definitely helps with calming the younger one. Love these videos as I can recommend them to people having problems with their dogs instead of me being the middle person for advice. Nothing like hearing or straight from Cesar as he has AL the information.

  • Darla

    I’ve tried being happy & giving treats at sounds of thunder and fireworks to get dogs to relate the sound to treats....sometimes it works. Husky/Lab mix can often feel the vibration and I’m not ready or aware. Our elderly dog is blissfully unaware, but sees the Husky getting anxious & jumping on me & elderly dog scolds her.

    My dog died on the 4th July 2020 from a heart attack. 13 years old. Will miss Buster alot. Had him since he was a pup. He was old but still ate good and was happy. Just like all dogs he hated fireworks. I'm sure that had something to do with it. Take the right steps to protect your animals, all animals!! Wish I would have done more. Love you Buster😔

    My dog destroyed my door in my room after I left him for like 5 minutes during the 4th of July. I don't blame him, it literally sounds like an air raid with all the flak or a warzone in general.

    Thank you Mr. Milan for the tips. Long 2 hour walk starting today the 2nd of July, through the 4th, getting a thundershirt today and introduce Daisy to it aannnnd be with her while playing calm sounds/ fireworks. This year I have a secret weapon. I rescued Molly, a 10 year old English Shepard who has brought a calming presence to my home. Last night a couple of preemptive 4th of July mortars were set off at nightfall. Daisy went into flight mode and hid in my closet, Molly stayed cool as a cucumber. So.? Hopefully with everything I am going to orchestrate this will be an enjoyable 4th. That and I also got a prescription of tranquilizers from my vet. Thank you again I have been a long time fan of yours, got your books, subscribe to your channel and wish the best for you and yours.

    I don't think you'll ever see this, but how can I get my dog to stop whimerping and whining and pacing when he hears loud noises outside. He's fine then a LOUD noise or firework happens he barks and starts panting really bad (I recently learned NOT to yell at my dog cause he's just scared) I try and make a quiet room for him, put on some calming music (not too loud) but it seems to agitate him more, it's like he WANTS ME to acknowledge his annoyance and fear and sit there talking to him. (When I try and calm him down he gets more whimpery until I completely ignore the whining then he falls asleep) am I supposed to ignore him? or what can I do to help him?

    I learned that we must practice calmness with our dogs especially before fourth of july. Take extra long walk the day before wait to feed them. Then feed with something that can over power the flight fight avoidance by Controlling the dog by the nose. Then introduce relaxation noise and then loud noise like fire works. You also have to be in a calm state in order for your dogs to become in calm surrender state.

    So my 6 year-old German Shepherd just cannot stop barking the entire time (1-2 hours) he hears those fireworks and firecrackers on July 4th, New Year's Eve, Memorial Day etc. I do understand and feel so badly for my dog each and every time. The problem is, I do not celebrate those occasions and try to go to bed but cannot sleep because of his non-stop bark. I am not upset about my dog, but I am upset with the situation that I cannot do anything about. I have given 3 benadryls to my dog and that did nothing. Thunder shirt is a joke, natural scent liquid (given oraly) was no help, either. Turning up the TV sound or music also did not do anything. I tried to stay up with him and play, but he does not buy. All I want is a peaceful sleep and my dog's calmness, no celebration. But I will try to walk him a little longer as you suggest on this year's fourth of July.

    Sorry but that won't work! My dog will not go for a walk or eat anything! The fireworks start in May and people still shoot them off for months afterwards! Its not just on the 4th! He won't go out of the house, hides under the desk and shakes! Now if he hears any loud noise any day he is in a panic. I have tried pills from my Veterinarian which I hate giving him but they don't seem to work either. Nothing seems to work! I'm afraid he is going to have a heart attack!

    So the "thunder vest" is basically a cop sitting on you. So don't put it on too tight. When my dog freaks out on fourth of july I try and shelter him from the noise best as possible and hold him . Human thunder vest. Fuck fireworks. If you don't have the time for that you shouldn't have a dog, or any pet at all.

    My dog gets super nervous and suffers from anxiety when there are storms and when she hears fireworks. She won't let me sleep and I hate to see her suffer when my neighborhood uses fireworks weeks before 4th of July and on late nights. My dog would start pacing and she will pee in the house. I'm going to try to go for long walks to wear down her energy and see if that works. Thank you for the tips.

    When I was caring for a neighbor's dogs several fourth of Julys ago, I put them into the quietest room in the house, made sure they were fed, watered, and comfortable, then went home for the night (not thinking that they would react to the sounds of fireworks which really were not very loud; I lived nearby and was not concerned). Well, when I got back the next morning, the normally gentle and well-behaved dogs must have experienced trauma because they tore apart some pillows and removed some of the family's items from a low shelf). As I cleaned up and apologized to them the next morning, I grabbed a big bunch of pillow fluff and right underneath I found a board game and there on the cover of the box was the word "SORRY!" (the name of the game). I felt like the dogs were sorry for making a mess, but I was more sorry for not taking better care of them. Thank you for the good work you do with all our beloved animals.

    My old dog who recently passed enjoyed the 4 th of July with me every year. Caesar is so right about calm energy. We always maintained calm energy around fireworks so she never interpreted that as something to fear. She was an exceptional dog, my constant companion, I miss her terribly. She was an excellent example of Caesars philosophy, I practiced it daily with her. She was such a nervous dog when we rescued her but through training she had 10 wonderful calm years with me.

    One thing you may have forgotten to mention and that is that humans do get excited on the 4th of July and may also be at a party or have a party at home and that is something for the dog to learn too. Everyone around him/her is excited and maybe even a little tipsy. So the owner needs to prepare the dog for that AND the fireworks, I am not sure that if only the owner is calm during the firework and everyone else is excited that it will really work for the dog. Maybe you would like to add this in your next video. I know that I would have to teach my guests but others may not know

    My parents dog sits outside and watches the fireworks with us. Never fussed over her when she was a pup, I guided her in her younger years and would always watch her reaction without looking at her. She would look at me when a bang went off and I'd just exhale and close my eyes slowly in a relaxed state. She copied me. just that once was enough. My sister came round a few years later for fireworks and showed signs of worry for the dog like she shouldn't be comfortable around fireworks, that triggered flight mode for her. But luckily I did some work with both of them and she now sits there and watches like before, not a care in the world.
