Barking Mad

Ooooh! Does your dog rocket around the
house and zoom up and down the stairs
on Bonfire Night? Help is just a blue touch
paper away. Ahhhh!

Remember, remember the 5th of November, gunpowder, treason and a house full of frantic pets. What's designed as entertainment for 'man' is no more than a hellish nightmare for 'man's best friend'. There's little hope that either organised or garden displays will be ever be banned, so how do we help our four legged friends get through these explosive evenings.

Some clever bods, in white coats have considered this problem for years and their result is a short film entitled 'Woofering Heights'. Voiced by David Tennant and shot in dog friendly blues and yellows, this hypnotic movie is scientifically designed to calm your dog. We had a listen and yep, it's very soothing and relaxing and two people did actually nod off. We think this is a promising solution, but how to get your dog to sit and watch it on TV when fireworks are going off is another thing.
