Making Your Rescue Dogs BC Comfortable Travelling in Cars
I'm sure you're excited to bring your new friend home and show them how exciting their new chapter will be. While going about growing your relationship, you're going to find that all dogs are unique; this is especially true when it comes to travelling in cars. Transporting your rescue dogs bc is a daily occurrence. Dog park visits, pet visits, and if you’re anything like me, chances are you dogs for adoption bc spend most of their day with you and come with you wherever you go.
One of the smartest things you can do with your new rescue dogs bc before travelling with them is to ask their previous care taker if they have any preferences. Every dog is different, so getting them used to the car will require you to be attentive and to find a solution that works. It’s important to always pay attention to the road and keep your dog off your lap. If they interrupted you, you would be at a higher risk of an accident, putting both you and your dog at risk. Keeping indy off my lap is a constant struggle in the car. He just wants to come up front and if I don’t have a passenger next to me, he will come up front as nothing is stopping him. Then he puts his two front paws on the center console which raises his big fat head up to my level then of course he has to get in my face and say hello which blocks my field of vision sometimes. I have to push him off and say NO and tell him to go in the back. The back isn’t even that bad for a dogs for adoption bc. If it is clear of any of my things, it’s basically like his own studio apartment on wheels
Be careful to lock your windows if you have that option, because dogs are known to accidentally press down on the button. Make sure to maintain control at all times. This is especially true when they are in the back seat and you can’t see them. My old dog Rylie chocked herself a few times by closing the window on herself.
That being said, when you have a successful journey with your pal, be sure to reward them with a treat or a big hug when you have arrived at destination like I do.
Never leave your dog alone in the car when it’s hot outside. Obviously. In a later video we will be showing you why this is a bad idea.
It sounds simple to say but sadly dogs lose their lives each year due to being left in a car. Always make sure your dog has some air if you have to leave them in the car. Try to keep them cool and hydrated. Dogs can heat up. If you must leave your dog in the car leave it on with the AC on and the doors locked!
