I met someone at an agility trial, who had a dog stressed-out dog, drooling, panting, wide-eyed, and pacing, About 30 minutes later I walked by the guy again and now the dog, now peacefully sleeping in his crate – so I asked the handler about the dog’s change from freaked-out to at-ease.

He said, “Oh, he just hates to ride in the car, but he gets over it.” I felt so sad for the dog – what an awful experience to go through before he got to a place where he was comfortable.

How do your dogs manage car rides? How do you get them content to ride in the car?
