I was taken by ambulance and miles was left with the car and actually towed. My boyfriend (who I had just started dating) is a cop and arranged it for us so that miles wouldn't end up in the pound and he went and picked him up, along with my things before going to the hospital. At the time I was just visiting and did not live in NY, so after a week recovery at my BFs house, I had to drive home. With the dog.

He was stress panting a bit, and a little skittish, but I was very matter of fact about it and we survived. With in a month or so he was back to his nutty self in the car. I say all this because if you have spent a great deal of time driving around with your dog he already has hundreds if not thousands of positive experiences in the car. So one negative experience will impact him, but he should be able to quickly recover. I would not wait forever to drive with him again, and I would not pay too much attention to stress behavior, meaning not a lot of soothing it's ok blah blah crap. Act normal. If it just happened today though, I would chill for a bit, Also, consider taking him to the chiropractor. Miles needed a few adjustments and I also did some massage with him.

You can just click/treat if she looks at the car, moves one foot to the car...

I agree with this. It is super important not only for your safety (and others), but it will wreck the resale potential for your vehicle. Definitely a good investment!

jocoyn I had a fearful dog who was scared of the vacuum cleaner -- found out years later why -- stupid teenage boy friend of my daughter would chase him around the house with it and his nature was a fearful dog.

Anyway we made great strides with slow gentle desensitization by feeding snacks closer and closer to it with a hungry dog and a lot of patience. I did not give strong affirmation as he got closer and closer with the hot dogs - but just - yawn, everyday and slowly he got better but it took a good while and a lot of sessions.

I think, before it goes downhill anymore, this is a good thread for a lot of folks including the OP to simply reflect on. How could we all do better? Neither the old threads or this one are going away so maybe we can push the reset button and move forward in an appropriate fashion...and that includes on future posts.

EDIT-I think you have plenty of good advice.

halo2013 Advice something that doesnt have to be taken. Advice is advice you do with it whatever you want. If what I said isn't something that was necessary then a simple I'm not interested in that method works.
But its okay. We can all act like kids. I mean my 5 year old shows more of a level of communication, understanding, maturity then some of the people I've encountered on this website. Some people here need to learn to grow up and get over yourselves.
Like i said ty to those whom were actually of help.

boomer11 People would be more receptive to helping you if you showed a little more humility. You yourself gave advice to someone else to use an ecollar on her fearful pup. When multiple people stepped in and said that wasn't a good idea you got all defensive and spouted out all these credentials about how you're a good trainer and you know what you're talking about. When that wasn't enough you created a thread with an incredibly loonnnngg rant about ecollars and how amazing and effective they are in all sorts of scenarios. Shouldn't you practice what you so adamantly preached?

Don't really have any advice for you since you're past this but I know a big part of how a dog precieves a car accident is how you react. If you're crying and freaked out and stressed then the dog will think the car hurt you or you're scared of it and the dog should be too.
