It comes just in time as millions of animals new lockdown pups face being traumatised by encountering their first ever fireworks this November.

Duncan, 43, said: “Pet Sounds has been designed to help keep our dogs calm and minimise anxiety during the firework period.

"I love dogs and have grown up with them all my life so I hate to see any animal stressed and in fear.

“We can’t stop the fireworks, so it’s up to all pet owners to do whatever they can to protect their animals. I hope the Pet Sounds will help them do that.”

Duncan’s top tips for protecting your dog on Bonfire Night

  1. Walk them during the day and avoid times when fireworks are
    likely to be set off
  2. Close windows and curtains to muffle the sound
  3. Put on some music to mask the bangs
  4. Create a quiet space where your dog can feel in control
  5. Create some hiding places around your home

Burns Pet Nutrition’s founder and leading vet John Burns said “We
cannot underestimate the stress that fireworks can cause to pets.

"After a quiet year in 2020, and with so many families having new dogs, we are expecting animal anxiety to go off the scale.

“We’re delighted to have teamed up with Duncan to create Pet Sounds, as we know that soothing music can often help to calm our canine friends.”

If you're planning on hosting your own Bonfire Night this year, make sure you know the law, or you could be facing £50,000 fine or even prison.
