We recently took in my mom's little 5 year old malti/poo, as due to health issues she was unable to give him the care he needed. He is a super sweet dog and has transitioned very well into our home. However, one of the issues we are having with him is that he is petrified of riding in the car. He will shake the entire car ride and it is stressful for me to watch him in such distress. My husband usually drives while I hold Nikko on my lap. Can anyone offer some suggestions for how to ease his fears of the car? We certainly want to be able to take him with us, rather than leave him at home when we are going to be away for a good portion of the day. I would appreciate any suggestions you may have. Thank you.
