If he hears a firework or firecracker from the house, he does his usual hackles/alert barking routine he reserves for other dogs barking and suspicious sounding noises outside. My female gets obviously stressed with heavy breathing and wandering around aimlessly, but he's not like that at all.
I took him outside when people were shooting off fireworks on Victoria Day here, and as soon as he gets the visual component he is much more intensely interested and then wants to get away. He was okay with sitting in the back of the car with me, but not terribly happy about it.
I won't make the mistake of taking him to another display, but I find it very interesting how differently he reacts to the same thing in the two situations. I'd definitely rather he didn't react to them as much in the house, and I think I might be able to work on it since it doesn't seem to be a fear response.

|Bob_McBob||I'm curious to know if people are able to successfully desensitize their dogs to fireworks and other loud noises. My male doesn't care about gunshots or thunder, but he barks very enthusiastically at fireworks and firecrackers on a hair trigger. He's not actually worried about them unless he can see them going off in the sky right in front of him, in which case he tries to escape.|

Mutt muffs for fireworks
We ordered these:
Has anyone tried them for fireworks? They've pretty good reviews...
I'm wondering if I can leave them on Zeeva and leave her in her crate? Or do you think supervision is still required?
