I'll take us home!!
Our road trip today wasn't any different and it makes for a difficult and exhausting ride, not to mention quite trying on my patience. Blaze learned to ride in a vehicle with her previous owners when they got her, but I don't think Chance ever did. If he went for any car rides it was only a couple of times. I know that Blaze was locked in a room for hours upon a time and there is a possibility that Chance was too. Maybe the confinment of a car triggers that for them. Whatever the reason or case, their anxiety is higher in the car when they are together.
Chance on my lap
I have tried Rescue Remedy with no effects. I have also used a calming spray with dog appeasing pheromones with no results. Clicker training with both of them does nothing. I felt like I'd run out of options when these options didn't work. When Daddy made a stop and I stayed in the car, Chance crawled into my lap and planted himself there. He was panting heavily and it was at this point that I knew I needed to try something, anything to help them.
When are we going home Mom??
I prefer to use natural products and I found some calming herbal tablets in a dog catalog I receive. I plan on ordering the tablets tomorrow and a prayer that something works.
Thanking you in advance for your help.
