Drooling, shaking, panting, vomiting…..Sound familiar?
Here’s how to teach him a car is a great place.
Begin by just rewarding your dog for being near the car, then voluntarily getting in, then reward him when you turn on the engine, and continue, likes so, in baby steps. Feed him his meals in the car, but not right before a trip, of course. In fact, avoid feeding your dog less than one hour before car rides to lessen the effects of any nausea.
Avoid taking your dog for trips that you think will result in him becoming sick while you are teaching him not to be afraid. Each time he gets carsick this will set back your progress in teaching him that a car is a safe place.
Use a secured a crate when transporting your dog. This is very safe and can also help him to stay calm if he is already comfortable with his crate.if this is not possible, use a doggy seatbelt.

- Open the window
- Make sure that he has a view out of the front windshield.
- Cover his crate so that he cannot see out of the car.
