I'm not an expert trainer by any stretch of the imagination. I could never get her to stop.

Our current pup started doing that in the car and I can't stand the thought of going through that again.

Here is what I have been doing. I put a zip lock of treats in the car. When he gets in the car I treat. We make it to the end of the driveway without him crying, I treat. We make it to the stop sign at the end of the street without him crying, I treat. etc. If he cries or whines, no treats. You could also hold the treat so he could see it, when he chills out, mark the behavior, and treat.

So far that seems like it is working. Eventually I will start backing off on the treats until I eliminate them. However, he is currently 9 weeks old. Your mileage may vary.
