DOG owners are being urged to keep their pets safe on and around Bonfire Night, November 5.
The Kirklees Dog Warden Service is worried many pets will be affected by loud bangs and other noises.
Senior animal welfare officer John Stead said: "Fireworks can frighten pets and cause unnecessary stress."
In previous years, the council's dog warden service had been called to several incidents, including dogs being left outside or taken along to fireworks displays. Some had fled in panic and were found later several miles away.
"If you are a dog owner, please do not take your dog to a fireworks display," said Mr Stead.
"Keep your dog inside. If you have to exercise your dog, do it in the daytime.
"Keep your dog on a lead and make sure it is wearing a collar and tag, or is microchipped, in case it bolts and ends up lost.
"Try to ensure that a family member stays at home with the dog when fireworks displays are taking place nearby.
"Keep curtains closed. Play some of your - or your dog's - favourite music to dull the noise from the fireworks.
"Finally, if you know from previous experience that your dog is particularly frightened around the time of Bonfire Night, you can obtain sedatives for it from a vet."
