-Create as much white noise as you can. Fans, TV's, radios, etc. Try to drown out the majority of the sound.
-Find a T-shirt that fits the dogs chest tightly and put it on them. No one knows why this helps, but many owners swear this makes a difference.

When it gets scared calm it down and stroke it and stay with it, don't leave it alone.
dog are afraid of fireworks because dogs have hearing 10 times more acute than humans but also 10 times more fragile . fireworks sound is so big that it can damaged and frighten dogs. dogs ears can be damaged easily and so then cause a brain wave to the dog causing it to shake
