I’m after some advice for car journeys. My girl is not a particularly good traveller but we are fortunately to live in walking distance to woods so she doesn’t go in the car too often. She is a Cocker Spaniel.
I have tried a dog guard with her in the boot, but she does not like to be separated from the family and whines. I’ve also tried her with a harness that clips into the seatbelt plug so she can be with us, and she does like this better as she can sit next to one of my children, my partner or me, if there is someone else in the car other than the driver, but she does try to take the harness part off and is not happy when it is just me driving and her in the back. Is there something else I can try that will keep her calm and safe on car journeys?
Any advice much appreciated. Thank you.
