Anxiety & Motion Sickness

Car rides can be an overwhelming experience for dogs. The smells, sounds, and movement can create a perfect storm of sensory overload.

Anxiety & Motion Sickness

For pets with anxiety related to car rides or travel, it can be helpful to gradually expose them to the car or other modes of transportation in a positive and controlled manner. Start by simply having your pet sit in the stationary car without starting the engine, and gradually progress to short drives around the block. Pair these experiences with positive reinforcement, such as treats or toys, to create a positive association with the car.

You can call us for further information regarding anxiety and motion sickness.
