Can dogs experience anxiety, especially during no one at home and during festive days (Due to crackers)?

Yes, absolutely, and it can even be so bad that they die. It is advisable not to leave the dog alone during the Festive Seasons, when fire crackers are lightend…

So what to do?

Close the windows and curtains to muffle the sound of fireworks. Put on some music or TV to mask the sound of the fireworks.
Create a space for the dog, where he can feel in control and create also some hiding places around your home.
