Fireworks and pet safety

The Maroondah Carols is a dog free event. We understand that some pets in the area may become frightened due to the noise of our fireworks display on the night. Here are some tips to keep your pets safe and happy during fireworks:

  • Talk to your vet about the treatment options available for managing noise phobias.
  • Take your dog out for exercise before the fireworks start, then feed them before you head out to Carols or in the lead up to the fireworks. A tired and well fed dog will be less anxious during the night.
  • Close the blinds/curtains, create a comfortable hiding place and allow your dog or cat to go there to feel safe. Put on some music or the TV to help mask the noise outside, and distract pets with games and food.
  • Make sure your dog is microchipped and that your contact details are up to date on the microchip register. Also ensure they are wearing an ID tag so they can be easily returned if they wander and become lost.

Accessibility

To make the Carols as accessible as possible there are pathways that are suitable for wheelchairs and prams, accessible parking on Norton Road and our very own Marveloo - a mobile accessible restroom for people with a disability and their carers.
