Yes, its no problem getting tranquilizers for bonfire night from the vet -- but dont reckon it would do them much good long term . If your dog is hyper, maybe he/she needs more demanding excercise if walking isnt enough - . As extra,we used to throw a ball up the stairs to the landing endless times for our nutty JRT , and use one of those springy ball throwers when outside. What breed and how old?

I'd advise against tranquilisers if you can. Gave them to my dogs on bonfire night and they weren't right for a good few days.

Try and give them a good long walk early in the morning and again early evening if you can during the few weeks of fireworks and stay in with them on actual bonfire night with the telly on loud!

For dogs that are scared of loud noises included fireworks, it's a good idea to try and condition them leading up to bonfire night. For example, having the tv on louder than usual, or, like my boyfriend does, playing army games on his computer, with the noise on loud! When I first got my dog, he hated the noise, and would leave the room if he turned the computer on, but now he's used to it, and is a lot better with other loud noises!
You can also get CDs from some Vets that you can leave on during the day whilst you're out. Just warn the neighbours, just in case they think someone's banging round your house! Haha!

We used to use a t-shirt on our Wolfhound and it worked a treat. (had to be a big t-shirt though!)

I'd definitely try an adaptil diffuser, i've been using feliway, which is the cat version to help settle my very nervous new cat and it seems to help. If you're using it to calm them down on bonfire night it's recommended that you plug it in one week beforehand.
