Some dogs never have a problem riding in a car.
Amie Soto Blossom used to be well travelled, sitting in her place on the back seat of our car.
Amie would have said,
"Dogs that ride behind dog guards are taken places, a dog that sits on the back seat is chauffeured" Amie was defiantly chauffeured. Her every whim was catered for, especially as she got older
Freya also sits on the back seat of the car, in her own car bed, with her harness attached to another clip that goes into the rear seat belt. This still gives her the ability to move around and yet if we stop suddenly she is safe from falling off of the seat. Great, what on earth can be wrong with that ?.
Freya...... sufferers from the dribbles. Some days we only drive a few minutes down the road, other days half an hour goes by and the dribbles start.
A chance meeting today with a lady whose dog also used to be car sensitive gave us a remedy for car sickness.
Ordinary brown paper.
Brown paper placed under Freya's blanket.
Our trusty model Freya demonstrates, sitting in her bed, the brown paper under her blanket and being clipped into the back seat belt of the car. The older Freya is becoming, the more we notice she really should be chauffeured, not just taken places.
We weren't going far, only to the local pet store to see the pet rabbits.
This is one of Freya's favourite places because she gets so much fuss.
The rabbits are good, but the icing on the cake is the cookie she always has from the checkout lady.
Did the brown paper help the dribbles ?
SO FAR SO GOOD.... will keep you updated.
In the meantime, if you have any other known remedies, don't keep them all to yourself.
Before you mention it, I've never heard of brown paper before either, I'm open minded will try anything once.
