    Travelling with my dog ?

    Hi everyone

    I have a 12 week old bichon frise, it’s settled in really well & behaving great. However Iv got him a travel cage which he doesn’t like when in the car. Any suggestions to ease him in to the car a little better ?

    Thanks Ryan

    First, make the car itself something fun. Have a special toy or treats that ONLY come out when he's in the car. Just sit in the car, without going anywhere, and play with him, gives him lots of attention, etc.

    Then, build up going to positive places or even just for a ride with no stop. When you get out of the car, praise him and give him lots of attention - that will help him identify cars with good things.

    Do the same with the carrier - make just being in it a fun thing.

    Also, puppies and younger dogs can get car sick easily. So go slow over bumps, around corners, etc.
