♦ Make sure to keep your pets inside on Bonfire Night!

♦ Close the curtains, play music or turn on the TV to try to drown the noise.

♦ Walk your dog during the day

♦ Let your pet hide if they want to

♦ If your pet lives outside, cover their pen or cage

If you’re having a bonfire be sure to check the area for small animals before lighting it!
