for those who have dog and cats and don´t know the germany habits of newyears..... might scare your pet a lot. Think about to stay beside - might help your dog (I been told).
Same as just about anywhere. Lots of fireworks and noise. If a pet is left outside, it could escape from being scared.
Just keep pets indoors until the noise is over. Of course, that could be sometime on January 3rd the way Germans party.
This is a DIY thundershirt. It's supposed to help calm dogs in storms and fireworks - maybe worth a try.
