This blog is for aboriginal breed enthusiasts. It is part of the INDog Project www.indog.co.in. Only INDogs (Indian Pariah) and INDog-mix mongrels are featured here. The two are NOT the same, do please read the text on the right to understand the difference. Our aim: to create awareness about the primitive natural breed called the Indian Pariah Dog/INDog. I sometimes feature other landrace breeds too.

For dogs scared of firecrackers
Last year I had posted tips on dealing with dogs who are scared of firecrackers. Click here to read them. Canine behaviour consultant Shirin Merchant gives some excellent advice and there is also my post about the homeopathic remedy Borax 1M, which seems to work well on many dogs (cats too).
Playing soothing classical music seems to help. Last year my aunt played Pavarotti for her little INDog-mix Lucy, with very good results. Lata Bajaj also reported that Carnatic music helped calm down her Sandy and Myra.
Always the optimist, I'm looking forward to the day when our fellow Indians will be able to celebrate this festival without turning the country into something resembling a war zone.
