My dog Floyd feels the need to bark constantly in the car on th way to a destination. He's not scared but excited because most of the time we're going hiking or to the dog park. He hasn't always…Continue
I am a runner who hasn't run in a year (I decided to take the year off) but I'm itching to start again. I think our corgi Floyd would benefit from the exercise as well but I'm wondering if other…Continue
"I drive a Prius, and Lilli's plastic crate fits in the back seat. Or two crates fit in the way-back. Or Lilli's crate on one-half of the back seat with the other part of the seat back folded down to accommodate a larger dog. Lilli's a…"
"I have a metal confectioners sugar shaker with several pennies inside of it. Car misbehavior results in a stern NO and a rattle. My three immediately stop. I wish I had the money to invest in one of those really small European…"
"I will have to give some of these techniques another try but the squirt bottle makes me laugh. Last trip to the park I emptied two squirt bottles of water onto his face which did not help at all. I just had a really wet, barking…"
"To be honest, I don't crate him in the car. I belt him in with his doggie seatbelt in the back seat. My husband lets him ride in the front seat, but I'm not having that. I've covered the back seat in blankets to…"
"With one of my dogs I tried EVERYTHING for 14 years. Nothing helped. He was, ahem, too stupid. (not a corgi). He would even roll his crate in the back of the car. Eventually we gave up, put him in his crate, wedged it in tightly, and endured.

Driving to a park with a dog barking in my ear the whole way is not my idea of…See More
"I run all the time spontaneously with Ein. He loves it but he'll grab the leash if he wants to be pulled of if he wants me to stop. My vet says that you should start light-5 min at first for a week, then boost it up 5 min at a time."
"oh my word! im not a runner but all i have to say is ok and she takes off, she loves it i have a longer leash ( 6ft) so i wont trip!! of course i can only go a few houses and im pooped but i will start up again till we manage to get the walk…"
"I personally would not recommend running with a 6 month old puppy, and definitely not for 3 miles. I was told by several breeders that you should keep their walks around a mile until they're at least a year old, in order to avoid any…"
"I took Beau running for the first time today. He is six months old and I figured from watching him fetch and "motor" around the house, he could handle it. We ran 3 miles around the loop of the neighborhood. He did well pretty much the…"
