Now I'm in situation where part-exchange deal is "scrappage" any condition, then there's the new car, where I might be able to reset associations (however I notice same issues in my sister's estate car as well as my 5 dr liftback so I think it's generalised to "cars" rather than 1 car). Border Collie unfortunately at 8 weeks on first journey the pup was car sick, hardly surprising as I felt queasy to on that road. That repeated, on short trips approx 5 mins drive, and I began to notice heavy drooling. OK, small earlier meal before car journey, began driving very slowly on non straight road, short trips to nice places, open windows and providing dog bedding to encourage him to settle down, expecting that he'd grow out of it. At 16 weeks since then, the puppy has proved generally healthy, confident and assured, made a lot of progress in all areas, was able to perform well at Obedience Training club on first night with other much bigger dogs barking around. All fine, but the reduction in drool, has now reversed and he was again carsick on a route to new park, with few extra roundabouts, which takes about 12 mins to reach. His only other nervousness issue, seems to be around water, streams and ponds, but that is understandable as he fell into a converted swimming pool on a cold day, having tried to paw at the fish playfully and found himself suddenly way out of his depth, and needing assistance to get out. The main symptoms are : 1) Avoiding the car when being taken out, refusing to go under own steam to carpark after exercise. Passive resistance at this stage. 2) Heavy Drooling 3) Being very passive in car rather than alert Riding along in front near me, doesn't seem to affect it. Having a period of time stationary in car, so he gets sleepy does help a bit. My concern is that this could become ingrained and his anxiety increase, so wonder with change of car being relatively rare, whether it's worth trying some things to ease the issue and have him be a more comfortable traveller.
