Hmmm, I googled noise canceling headphones for dogs and got results like. "Will headphones cancel dog barking, snoring (yes, snoring, lol) and things like that.

I do have a small confession...I have been wearing ear plugs for the worst portion of our trip because in the truck he tends to be right behind my head and the heavy panting was starting to really get to me.

I know...it has gotten pretty pathetic. Just not sure what else to try. If he freaked out the entire trip, I might reluctantly try getting something sedating from the vet, but it's only on certain roads and he acts just fine otherwise.

I am just thankful that this situation hasn't ruined his love of traveling.

MyHans-someBoy I really hoped that by this time I could wrap this thread up by telling you all that he has overcome whatever it was causing such an extreme reaction, but he reacts the same way each trip.

The only positive I can find recently about traveling in the truck with him is that he has at least found a better way to deal with it.

He will lie down, without being told, and rest his chin on his paw until we have driven through the "bad" area.

This is, at least, a much better alternative to pacing, as he was beginning to be very distracting to his chauffeur,

He does still tremble some, but he has apparently learned to adapt and cope. Thank goodness...

Didn't go anywhere today. We'll probably run errands in the Jeep tomorrow, so I expect him to be quite content.

I guess the next little test will be going back to work Monday evening.
Yes, I have a really odd schedule.

I'll try to remember to post how he did. It will be interesting to see if my tire whine theory holds up.

Didn't see this post earlier...
That is hilarious! Yes, a lot of animals have their little "quirks".

Years ago, my husband had a cat who would come up on the couch, and while my husband was lying down, would crawl up and lie down on his chest to be petted- but only if my husband was wearing a shirt!
If he didn't have a shirt on or a blanket pulled up to his neck, then forget it. He wouldn't even consider it. It was so funny! Quite the proper "gentleman", I guess!

There is a really foul smelling factory in that particular area (fertilizer plant or something like that) but it has been there since we started making the trip.

I probably won't ever know for certain what is causing all this, but for now, if we are in the truck, I will roll the windows up. If tire whine is causing the problem, I will feel doubly bad, since I have been especially careful to keep the windows down and the radio off.

Maybe windows up and some soft background music could help?

Too bad he couldn't talk and just say "Hey, genius, this highway noise is KILLING me-cut down that nice county road", lol.

Oh, as far as sounds go....the sound of our blender in the kitchen definitely has a negative effect on our dog....she will get up and leave the kitchen when the blender comes on....Oh well, I guess she won't be getting any Margaritasthis summer....

Yes, I am going to tentatively say that tire whine is driving him more than a little crazy...

It's going to be up to me to remember to roll up the windows before entering this long stretch of highway.

Now that you've mentioned Margaritas, I won't be able to drive that stretch of highway without thinking "Ah, we are entering Margaritaville"

Surely, Hans & I could use one about now, LOL!
