Cracker doesn't like them but she's calm in her kennel. How about your dogs?

One of mine which is scared of thunder as well goes and hides. The other one doesn't mind too much.

During the town fireworks show nearby, Dash ran around the back yard all excited looking for something to hunt or retrieve. Then just sat in the middle of the yard listening to distant fireworks the rest of the time. He's a clown. Blaze now retired could care less. Besides she does not hear well anymore anyway. I think young Dash associates it to a big field Dove hunt same my older Vizsla Blaze used to do. But I agree unless you really know well that your dog is ok with it, they should not be exposed to it.

I have one that doesn't care for them, the other 2 could carless. I just turn the TV, or radio on a little louder in the house, and all is well.

I have some that normally eat like horses. They were upset and wouldn't touch their food last night. I think they were upset because they could not go to the "guns".

Night before last, I was hearing some extremely loud reports. I figured my BIL(also neighbor) had cornered a varmint and was trying to close the deal close to my house. I grabbed my trusty LCR, and a battery powered spotlight and stepped out into the yard. What was really happening, was a couple of kids shooting skyrockets off, at the intersection just yards away from my house. I really had no legal grounds to run them off...They were on public roads, outside of town, but it was upsetting my dogs and myself. I stood by my pickup and watched in the dark for a while. Finally, one of them asked "Do you want us to go somewhere else?" I replied, "I sure do!", They packed up and left. I am certain they were calling me all kinds of ugly, but I sure appreciated their cooperation.

Bocephus perked up and let a warning bark out at 4 am when some hoodlums were firing Roman candles off in the middle of the street. He quickly went back to sleep. We took him across the road to watch the city fireworks go off last night and people were firing off all over the place. He couldn't care less. Doesn't care about thunder either and he is even gun broken.

Izzy kept running circles trying to hunt something. Deuce didn't notice.
