In two weeks I’ll be driving to San Diego with Frankie to do a signing for Am I Boring My Dog? I’m no longer worried about my book’s title question; Frankie is plenty entertained (and plenty entertaining). But when it comes to car trips, the question arises: Am I stressing my dog?
Frankie loves being with me but he hates the car. That’s why we’re doing the training I’ve been detailing every Tuesday. And I was convinced by the testimonial of spokesdog Wrigley on this site to buy a copy of Through A Dog’s Ear. We’ll road test it and I’ll report back.
But there are other things that people swear by to calm their dogs, from DAP collars to calming masks to drugs, herbal and prescription. So this week the question is: What are the best methods of calming your dog during a car trip?
All testimonials from people or dogs are appreciated.
By the way: Safety first. I’m talking about dogs that are securely belted or crated in the car but are still stressed.
