But lately, when we go on road trips, she gets worse and worse anxiety each time. Here she is hiding under the bed we put in the backseat to keep her comfy:
|"The evil things won't find me under here!"|
We've tried the Thundershirt...
|"This Thundershirt works great! As long as you don't put me back in the car!"|
So on our upcoming road trip (yes, we have another one planned!), I'm thinking we'll try a triple-whammy: Xanax + Thundershirt + this pheromone spray stuff I got.
I hate to give her drugs, but at least it's only a few times per year, and it did seem to help a bit.
My sis's dog Stella also has anxiety in the car - even for short trips to somewhere fun. Here she is looking very unhappy in the back seat before we took her to doggie daycare, which she loves!
|"Are we there yet?" "Uh, no. We're still in the driveway."|
What does your dog think about car rides?
