It is a simple necessity that we will need to transport our dog in the car. This may be simply to the market or to the Veterinarian. It could also be for long trips on a vacation. No matter what the reason or the duration, we need to make sure that our dog is contained for both safety and comfort.
Training our dogs that the car is a safe and happy place is very important. This is based on dog training exercises based on socialization and familiarization. Just as important is containing him so that he does not become a safety hazard to us, our family, or himself.
