Fireworks Night Dog Care   (+7, -1)  [vote for, against]
To prevent stressed dogs

One of the things about Australia Day is that most citys/towns have a firework display. Whilst this is nice, most dogs (unless they're as deaf as a post) will go nuts at the sound of the bangs. Same thing happens with thunderstorms.

The thing is, some places that take care of dogs haven't got much soundproofing, and dogs get terrified of thunder, so how about a pet care centre that will look after dogs overnight, whilst the fireworks/volcano/thunderstorm goes on outside, whilst the inhabitants can't hear a thing due to well-installed soundproofing.

This could also work as a pet hotel, for people and animals that get scared of thunderstorms, just check in overnight while the thunderstorm goes on outside and you can't hear a thing.

How about canine ear plugs? Or canine ear muffs? (Would those be called MuffyMuffs?) Or extra-strength canine sedatives? The one-time cost would probably be far less than the recurring cost of boarding your pet annually.

Dino used to hide under the bed (until she went deaf) - perhaps some kind of under-bed soundproofing?

I am told that Prozac works for dogs - just dose them up.
