Anxiety Hotline For Dogs Opens For Bonfire Night
An anxiety hotline for pooches is launching on bonfire night this year to help calm the fright of fireworks for our canine friends.
While fireworks might look spectacular to us, dog-owners will know that the loud bangs can be super scary for their pets, leaving them trembling behind the sofa with anxiety.
Healthy dog food company Edgard & Cooper has launched the hotline in order to help dogs that get nervous on bonfire night.
Obviously, it will be the owners doing the calling as dogs and fiddly phone buttons don't exactly go paw in paw.
Dog-owners will be able to talk to a team of specialists from 6pm on 5th November, who will dish out free advice to help calm their pup's nerves.
Most dogs can hear four times the distance of a human and can hear much higher pitched sounds at a frequency range of 67-45,000 Hz, so it's no wonder why fireworks are so scary for our beloved canines.
Edgard & Cooper co-founder Louis Chalabi said: "Fireworks travel up to 150mph at up to 120 decibels, it's no wonder our dogs suffer on Bonfire Night.
"The service will go-live at 6pm on 5th November, and will run till 11.30pm that evening."
There's signs and symptoms of stress you can look out for too such as hiding away, barking more, trembling, drooling or having an accident.
The RSPCA also has some easy advice for pet owners ahead of bonfire night to keep their pets cool as a cucumber:
