    any fellow dutch men on here know how bad it is with fireworks going off days before new years eve so I started to train my pup to stay calm with fire work noises in July this year and even if it wasnt much and only with recorded fireworks noises it is paying off now he still has his moments but he stays sort of calm even in the dark when the flashes and colors shoot up all around us in the streets and it sure helps that my other dogs are trained not to react to any noise or bang they hear or see flashes and colors in the sky
    the only thing that could ruin it is when I get caught by surprise and get spooked so fingers crossed that wont happen :D

    Hopefully your training has done its job and you will be fine. At the worst case he will need another session to desensitize him a bit more.

    Good luck on new year.

    thanks Lee I am training him for 6 month now and he is starting to trust me but he still has a long way to go, having said that he ignores the noise around him and using his nose to explore what is going on

    the last day for new years eve is "traditional" the worse day if it comes to fire works but I still went to the off leash forest with my dogs the 2 oldest dogs are 6 and nearly 2 years old and know the drill : do not react to loud bangs and just go about as if it doesnt sound like there is a war going on around the forest the 11 month old one behaved like every thing was as usual and did what he always does : running around and playing with other dogs ignoring all fire works
    on our way back home there were a few kids trowing heavy fire works around with out looking and he didnt even look at the fire works so I feel safe to say his early training has payed off and we will be in for a easy new years eve without a fearful young dog :)
