How to take your dog in the car – without the drama!

Owning a dog is more work than most people know. When people think about owning a dog, they think of having the best companion, playing games, and cuddling. However, owning a dog is almost as challenging as having a child. Dogs feed on a specific diet. They need to be washed, and they need to play, sleep, and exercise as well. Like with kids, travelling with a dog is also challenging. Dogs are very playful and active.

When in the car, dogs tend to jump and play around because of the excitement of being in a new environment. The very intelligent creatures learn to associate cars with visits to the park and friends’ places. Some have terrible memories associated with cars, especially dogs, from a rescue. Other reasons include the fact that some dogs get car sick, suffer claustrophobia, or simply fear the motion of the vehicle.

These add to the excitement, fear, and restlessness. Getting such a dog inside the car can be difficult because of the fear they associate with the vehicle. So how can you take your dog in the car without the challenges? Here are some useful tips I’ve picked up.
