Getting used to the car

Take your pup to the car, give them treats in there, hang out with them there, feed their dinner there – start to make the car a really happy place. Then start doing the same but with the engine on. Then progress to short drives around the block. All journeys must end in doing something your pup likes at this stage (e.g. going for a walk). With practice, you can increase the time that your pup is in the car for journeys. Make sure that they have lots of happy car trips rather than just trips to the vet!
