    ... So, in not even 2months time i'm moving back to Denmark. (from italy).

    Ofc. i take my dog with me, but its a long ride and she very rarely gets with me in the car. Infact she seem to calm, just siting there on the backseat without moving and muscle.. Any ideas on how to make her more comfortable for the journey? It's no problem for 10-15min while driving to her favorite walking area, but 11-18hours is bit much... :)

    Thanks.

    When we drove from Germany to Scotland (17hours) to stay with my parents while waiting on our furniture arriving in N.Ireland we just made regular stops for them to stretch their legs and have a drink. To be honest they slept most of the journey as a lot of it was through the night. I'm sure she will be fine.

    I have taken mine on very long trips a couple of times. I have been amazed at how well they behave and just sleep and enjoy the leg stretches when we have stops. I am tossing up whether to take Floss with us when we go away in September. We will leave home about 10.30 at night and arrive sometime during the next evening. The pup wont come, it is too far but I think Floss might be happier to come with us as I cant find a house sitter and I dont think she would be happy with someone else.
