So the little guy isn't a fan of the car. He's barfed 9 times total on about 5 car trips. It seems to be nerves that get to him because the next day uh, the opposite end of him is a loose mess to clean up. We once got advice to take dogs on short trips (like to the bank or to get gas, stuff like that) so they associate the car with 'ooo, fun! look at the squirrel! mah head can too fit out the window, wweeee!' instead of 'car = vet = Baaad'. Do most dogs get over the whole vomit thing eventually? We took him to a park that is literally 5 minutes from our house and he was ok . . . drooling but no vomit. Took him to the pet store that is less than 10 minutes away and LOTS of drool but no vomit. Took him to a different pet store that is less than 10 minutes away and he vomed just as we pulled into the parking lot and again on the way home just as we pulled into the neighborhood. Any suggestions for this or is this just a wait-and-see proposition? Do lots of 5 minute rides and slowly make them longer? As an aside, the two of them are outside now (it finally stopped raining) and are playing tug-of-sockie. TOO freakin' cute!
