Teddy is a rescue. He has been with us for almost two years now. He is a most Awesome Basset. We think he is probably 4 years old. He has never been fond of fireworks. Thunder is not an issue, only fireworks and gun like noises. This New Years Eve his reaction was as severe as it has ever been in the time he has been with us. We were all in bed by 10:30. At midnight there were prolonged fireworks in the neighborhood. He bolted out of his bed and then he paced the house extremely nervous (panting and shivering) all night long until he wore himself out around 5 am. I stayed up with him all night but could not console him. His PTSD has continued now for 5 nights. He will be resting (snoozing peacefully) on the couch until we go to bed. He will go out for his last potty of the day and then come back to his couch and continue his snooze. As soon as his people make ready for bed the PTSD kicks in (even though there are no fireworks) and he starts his pacing and nervous whining until someone gets up and sits with him. We have been taking turns sleeping on the couch each night to keep him calm. His symptoms are less severe than night one (and I think improving each night) but I would rather not get him use to having us sleep on the living room sofa every night. Any and all advice is welcome.
