29 - Practice safe travel in a car

Take your dog out in a vehicle as soon as you can. Begin by going on short drives that end in a lovely walk so he associates cars with something pleasant. Boring drives or visits to the vets do little for the dog–car bonding process. To keep your dog safe when he is travelling, he needs to be on the back seat with a specially designed dog seatbelt that attaches to the human seatbelt, or in a custom-made car crate in the back.

Make sure that he has been able to relieve himself before he gets in the car and avoid feeding him prior to travel to limit the chances of carsickness. If he is an anxious traveller, use TTouch ear work and a bodywrap to help him feel more secure.
