Dogs and Fireworks


Has your dog been terrified the last few days? It’s estimated 45% of dogs in the UK show signs of fear when they hear fireworks.

Lexi, our 11-year-old Labrador, is getting anxious in her old age. Her signs of distress are panting, pacing, shaking, whining and sue won’t leave my side.

She eventually settled lying next to me on the bed as I watched TV and wrote this blog.

How to Calm Dogs During Fireworks

  • Walk your dog during daylight hours
    • Avoiding times when fireworks are likely to be set off.
  • Close windows and curtains
    • Muffling the sounds
  • Put on some music or TV
    • Masking the sounds
  • Ignore the fireworks yourself
  • If your dog is particularly bad talk to your vet
    • They can provide a pheromone diffuser or even medication

Jake and Amber

I’ve grown up around dogs and as such I very much see them as part of the family. I also find it easy to relate to dogs. If you book your photography with us, I strongly suggest you bring your fur-baby along.

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of spending some time in Castle Dene woods with this beautiful pair.

Amber was too interested in the sticks and river to be bothered by my presence.


Jake on the other hand was so excited to play. He was just so curious and playful. He also reminded me so much of Scooby Doo.

Why Photography is Important

I’ve read that children feel safe, welcome, seen and loved if there are images of themselves in the family home. I love this idea and think this is something every family needs to know.
