Fruugo offers quiet ear covers, which is basically a comfy snood that can be wrapped around a dog’s ears.

They come in three colours: black, pink or purple.

The earmuff is specifically designed to reduce anxiety caused by the loud noise, and it’s not just for firework displays…

It also keeps long ears and facial hair dry while they eat!

3. Mutt Muffs

Price: £44.64

Mutt Muffs are dog ear muffs which provide over-the-head hearing protection for animals.

They have specially designed wide foam filled ear seals for maximum comfort, and are engineered match the shape of a dog’s head.

The ear muffs aim to protect your pet’s hearing in loud environments, but do not completely cancel out loud noises.


Price: £11.99

FLTY sells a soft, expandable, fabric belt with gentle compression, which can relieve anxiety and calm a dog in stressful situations.

The product has full-wrapped noise reduction sleeves to protect pets’ ears from noise, which aims to help dogs and cats calm down.

Its gentle compression design can also help to reduce the noise.

5. Make your own

You can make your own dog ear muffs by using a sock.

All owners need to do is cut the ends of a pair of their socks off, where the toes and ankle usually are, and place it around their dogs’ head.

The DIY ear muffs can be made to quieten the distressing noises – and the dog may even feel as though they are being cuddled!
