If your dog is scared of fireworks, you need to come to one of our Fear of Fireworks classes in June.

No one wants to see thier dog suffering in fear for 2-3 weeks around the Fourth of July. But we can help your dog with their fear of fireworks. We have come up with an easy way to help dogs stop being scared of fireworks for good using positive dog training methods. The trick is you need to start working on it before the fireworks start.

In this 30 minute class, you will learn how to help your dog stop being scared of fireworks via desensitization and counterconditioning. Its a simple process that only requires a few minutes of practice each day for 1-3 weeks (depending on how much you practice and how intense your dog’s fear of fireworks is).

Instead of cranking up the radio (which only masks the sound and only partially helps), risking your dog running away or watching your dog in a constant state of misery, you can help your furry friend learn that while they may not like fireworks, they don’t have to be afraid of them.


“After 1 class with Dog Gone Problems with David Codr on Thunderstorms and Fireworks, Hope Heartie was able to sit and enjoy the sights, sounds and colors of last nights neighborhood blast off. This is HUGE! She, for the first time, didn’t shake herself into a stupor.” #victoryoverfear

No one wants to see a dog cower and unsuccessfully try to find a place to hide for the weeks leading up to Independence Day. With this technique, we can help most dogs get over a fear of fireworks for good. Now each dog is unique. While dogs like Hope Heartie can get over thier fear of fireworks for good, in severe cases, this class may help bring that down by a little or a lot. The results are based on the fear level of the dog and how often and high quality the practice is.

This is a human-only class as dogs or puppies afraid of fireworks get the best results when practicing at home instead of a new environment with a bunch of unknown dogs and people. We will show you the three steps with a dog at the class so you can practice and perfect the technique, then take what you learned home to work with your own dog who should be nice and rested from lounging at home while you are in the class.

We are holding this special one day only class on Saturday June 19th at 1 PM

Class is $40 per peson, with limited space available. If you are interested, don’t wait to sign up. This is one of the most popular classes we teach.
