4 Tips to Help You Calm an Anxious Dog During Fireworks

  1. Provide a Safe Space – When dogs are scared, they often want a place that feels safe to them. Typically, that is a place in a closed environment. If your dog is crate trained and likes their crate, this is a good place for them (maybe even with a blanket on top). If you have some sort of cubby, nook, or other “secure” area, this may work as well.
  2. Remove Visual Stimulation – Your dog is going to be overstimulated from the storm, so try to remove other stimuli that will enhance their anxiety. Close the shades to dim the room, turn off the TV or keep it at a low volume, and dim the lights. Keep things as peaceful as you can.
  3. Be Present – Your dog likely sees you as a familiar, calming presence. Your absence likely makes things even scarier. Be near your dog, and be ready to provide some light, gentle petting if your dog snuggles up next to you for comfort.
  4. Get Some Exercise in Early in the Day – If your dog has extra energy at night, it’s going to translate into extra anxiety and nervous energy. Lots of playing early in the day helps to get a lot of that nervous energy out, leaving your dog a little more capable of attaining a peaceful state in a stressful situation.
  5. (And One Extra) -Try a Natural Calming Supplement Like K9 Kalm – K9 Kalm is a natural, CBD based supplement (but don’t worry, there is NO THC, and therefore no psychoactive or hallucinogenic effects). It’s designed to serve as an effective, non-synthetic alternative to traditional drugs for dogs facing anxiety, aggression, and other similar issues.

About K9Kalm and CBD

K9 Kalm contains Cannabidiol (CBD) which is widely used by those seeking an all-natural substitute to conventional drugs. Dogs and other mammals have a system of receptors in the brain and nervous system that respond positively to CBD. The term cannabis is often associated with having a psychoactive effect, but CBD does not produce any mind-altering traits and interacts naturally with the body’s own endocannabinoid system, which regulates digestion, mood, and sleep. When the external CBD and intersects with the dog’s internal, naturally produced cannabinoid, the powerful combination positively impacts the central and peripheral nervous systems. By targeting these receptors directly, CBD can offer an effective, non-synthetic alternative to dogs affected by a variety of issues.

K9 Kalm is different from other natural CBD supplements dog owners give because it does not contain THC. Some side effects of THC in dogs can be lethargic behaviors, breathing problems, lower blood pressure, abnormal heart rhythms, loss of balance, and urinary incontinence. THC products have even been known to lead to possible untimely deaths in dogs.
