Rascal has only reacted it the thunder was so loud I jumped too. I know she didn't like it when our smoke alarm was going out and going off every 5 minutes last summer! We were both out side in a wink of an eye!
It was too dry last year for fireworks. Anything that goes off the ground is illegal too.

Actually, thinking on this has changed and most experts feel is it fine, even advisable, to comfort a fearful dog.

Study indicates that comforting your fearful dog is helpful, not counterproductive

Interesting Janice! I think it depends on the level of fear as Nipper was really freaked out by Fireworks (for many years) talk about shaking it was very bad and even when stroking her it got worse. But now she will hear them and look at me for reasurance I say in a happy voice it's ok so trusts my judgement and comes and lies down next to me But it certainly wasn't always like this

Regarding comforting a fearful dog, I believe it depends on the dog, the situation, their background and one's bond. In Naomi's case she was rescued from an extremely violent dog fighting environment, and a very gentle hand and nurturance is required with her, even comforting and reassuring when she falls into a PTSD reaction. She definitely needs more attention and assurance than any of my other dogs did, but they did not endure the four years of hardship that she has. All things considered, though, she's doing exceptionally well and is swiftly recovering, and she's become much more confident in herself.

Definately there are many factors to consider, When I started out on this road several years ago and fireworks went off nothing worked if Nipper was on my lap for eg and being cuddled she would jump off or wriggle through your arms but with a combination of Rescue Remedy and and not fussing over her things are 90% And for 2 years Rescue Remedy (I still have a bottle) hasn't been needed and a totaly different approach is used from several years ago.
And Nipper will now look at me when she hears some thing that she isn't sure of I smile and say it's ok and she seems to accept my judgement!
