While your band is rehearsing, you can’t blame your dog if it is hiding under the table because the pet is scared. It is possible it is bothered by all the noise so you know that you must do something to keep them comfortable while the rehearsal is ongoing. One way to do that would be to let the dog play with all the stuff toys in your arsenal. There can be a lot of cool things the dog can play with. Besides, you know the dog would want to play with those things even though the pet knows they are not real. We all know dogs are smart animals so they can distinguish real from fake ones. Another thing to do would be to massage the dog. There are a lot of different doggie massage techniques that you can learn just by watching videos on the Internet. When that happens, you know that this is one thing that you would want to do for the long haul. You can give the dog a massage on the tummy and on the neck. It likes a good massage on the legs too and you know the pet likes the massage when it is wagging its tail. Since you are massaging your pet, there is no need to put oil on its skin. A nice dry massage would do and in a matter of time, the pet would fall asleep, You should give yourself a pat on the back for accomplishing a feat like that.
One splendid way to keep them comfortable would be to turn on the TV at another room then put the dog there. Of course, the dog will just watch whatever is on the tube so better keep it entertaining. It must be something that the dog would want to watch. One thing the dog would want to watch is a movie about pets. There are some nice cartoons too about doggie cartoon characters. They can also relate to a cartoon character like Scooby Doo who is actually a detective. It goes to show how dogs have a lot of special talents. It is cool how a dog can be part of a gang composed mostly of humans. it is no surprise how Scooby Doo is the main character there and everyone is just a supporting cast. In the end, Scooby is the one who takes out the bad guy while the rest solve the mystery. Even if the dog does not know what is going on in the cartoon, it is good for a few laughs. That should make the dog feel comfortable while you are practicing with the band. It is true how there really is no time limit to what you are doing so better not disturb your dog as the pet would want your attention a lot more than what you think. In addition, better let the dog play with the dogs of the neighbors. It is great for your dog to also have a lot of friends.
You can’t blame yourself if you are pretty excited to play in your first outdoor concert. Since it is outdoor, anything can and will happen. Everyone would want to have a lot of fun and there is very little the security could do to stop them from doing it. Some people may drink a bit too much so they end up fighting with other music fans. The important thing is everyone gets to have a lot of fun.
Keep Dogs on Leashes
There will surely be fans who will bring their dogs to the concert. When that happens, always remind them to keep dogs on leashes. Besides, there is a possibility that they may escape. When that happens, it is going to be hard to retrieve the dogs due to the number of people in the outdoor concert. The dog can go around exploring the place and will lose track of the people around him. What’s worse, someone may take the dog home if she finds the animal too cute to ignore.
Number of Portable Toilets
You know all attendees would need to use the bathroom at one point in the concert. Thus, better have a lot of portable toilets in the outdoor concert. That would prevent a long line from happening as you know the fans would want to get back to watching the concert as soon as possible. It would be best to put a lot of portable toilets in a V shape formation at opposite sides of the concert so that the attendees won’t have to walk a long distance. Also, there should be someone assigned to clean the portable toilets as some people may get them dirty which won’t be good for the next user.
Preparing for Rain
There is always the chance that it will rain so better bring some umbrellas to distribute to the crowd in case they were not able to bring any umbrellas. If it was sunny in the afternoon, you can’t really blame them for not doing so. After all, it is a pretty big hassle if you have to carry a huge umbrella to a music festival unless it is something light that you can put inside your bag. There should also be some covered parts of the outdoor field so that is where everyone will go in case it rains.
Overall, there are a lot of things to consider when staging an outdoor concert for a first time. It is far from being an easy thing. When you get the hang of it, you are going to love every second of it. Nothing would make you happier than seeing the contented look on the faces of your fans. Hence, better do everything in your power to make them enjoy the experience. Make sure to arrive pretty early to the concert so that you can make sure that everything will go as planned. You would not want to regret when it is too late to do something about it.
