It’s the New Year, and for some of us that means long nights ringing in 2016 with friends, laughter, and even fireworks, depending on what city you live in.

But just because you will be having plenty of fun catching up with your nearest and dearest, doesn’t mean your dog will be as well. In fact, loud noises and fireworks tend to pose a problem for our furry friends.

Our canines will often panic from the clatter, so it’s important we keep New Years Eve as calm, quiet, and serene as possible for our furry friend.

Does your dog have a favorite TV show he or she may like to watch? PetMD recommends putting on that show in the background or some soothing, classical music to help relax your dog. Adjust the volume so it’s at a comfortable level, but loud enough so that it distracts your doggy from any festivities just outside his quiet and cosy room.

Is there a chance you won’t be able to stay home with your dog? Either way, make sure he’s taken care of that night. Hire a pet sitter who your dog is familiar with, Dogshome.com suggests.

Be prepared for one of the worst case scenarios, in which your dog runs out of the house. Keep his identification updated always, according to Seattle Dog Spot. That way, if you are unable to locate your pooch immediately, your chances of retrieving your dog is increased.

But what about potty breaks? That's where DoggieLawn comes in! Our dog sod potty patches will keep him indoors for an easy potty solution. Simply place your dog sod litter box inside your apartment for an outdoor-free experience. Your outdoor dog litter box can easily be used indoors, and picking up your dog’s potty is a breeze since it’s all contained on the dog litter box. We also carry poop baggies that come in a variety of colors and fun patterns to match your stylish pooch!
