Helping Dogs with Severe Phobias During Storms and Fireworks

The ideal way to treat fireworks and thunderstorm phobias is to train your dog using bahaviour modification techniques such as systematic desensitization and counter-conditioning. This should be started at a time of year when fireworks or thunderstorms are not likely to occur, so that you have control over the situation and time to work on your retraining program. Howwever, if this has not been possible, you need to know how to help your pet during a thunderstorm or fireworks celebration.
