Short journeystories just to get her used to it. What a noise!!
That's like asking how long is a piece of string....!! It all depends on the puppy. Is she distressed/travel sick?
What training are you doing with pup to get her used to it?
What does she do?
What is your reaction to what she does?
No, she is not travel sick. Just not happy.
I give her a treat when I put her in the cage. She makes a lot of noise. I don't react at all, try very hard to ignore it. We are only doing very short journeys.
Sorry I posted my reply in the wrong place.
I give her a treat when I have put her in the cage.
She makes a lot of noise, crying. I try to ignore it and not react.
Firstly, I'd delete the Poll as it's confusing
Is she used to a crate?
It's very early days, so does she need to go in the car at the moment?
Can she travel on the back seat with someone?
I'd be inclined to leave it a few weeks, get her relaxed in the crate indoors by making it her happy place (see the sticky on crate training) and start again with the car from scratch when she has settled.
I didn't see how she travels in the car with you.... In the boot in a crate, out of a crate, on the back seat in a harness etc....?
If it's in a crate is she crate trained: happy to be in her crate in the house?
Do you always go to the same place in the car i.e the park or do you take her in the car for other reasons?
These questions can help us understand more the situation.
I don't understand - the poll
Yes she is used to a crate
No she can not travel with someone, it is not safe.
We live in a village so need to use vehicle most days.
She travels on the back seat in a cage that is secured. At the rear of the vehicle is a floor to ceiling cage with large dogs in.
She is used to going in her crate at home.
