Trick or treat: Can training & food help pets through the stress of Halloween & Firework night?, Katie Scott-Dyer #14
This week on The Pet Perspective, we’re going to be talking about autumn’s big holidays, Halloween and Bonfire Night, and how you can prepare your pet for the noise and activity they bring.
We’re joined by clinical animal behaviourist
Katie Scott-Dyer, who tells us all about why the autumn holidays can seem scary to our pets, and how you can teach them to cope with stressful situations from door knocking, to fireworks, and prevent fear from forming.
This episode of The Pet Perspective covers:
- What makes Halloween and Firework Night so scary for dogs and cats
- How to get your dog used to door knocking (without woofing!)
- Helping young pets so they don’t develop noise phobias
- Is it possible to teach older pets not to be afraid of fireworks?
