I would rather they have said something before we wondered into the street!
Yeah we've had a few wander through here occasionally. Not very often. I'm more concerned because a friend of mine live nearby and sometimes rides her horse over. When Ivan was a puppy she knocked on my door still on her horse I've got a window in the door. Ivan saw that big horse head at the window and peed all over my floor. It was pretty funny and he soon made friends with the horse but Id like to prevent a repeat of that. So more horse viewing/socialization for little dude.

Thanks for the encouragemet, out of all the dogs I've had, that is a new one for me. Now we can really focus on the socialization... And a new project, getting him to not bark at horses. LOL

shepherdmom What a difference a couple of weeks make. He is now riding just fine. Ran out and hopped in the truck today with Ivan and Wiggles. Sat up on the seat inside of hiding down on the floor and actually barked at a couple of horse as we drove past. Gonna have to work on that one.

The only puker I had was my first. He never acted nervous about anything, he was more of a butthead about everything.

What I do with puppies, is I take them in the car before I feed them. If I know that we are going somewhere, I will with hold the meal. But that is just me. A few hours one way or the other will not kill a puppy. But if you fill them up, and then take them for a spin, the chances are that much greater that they will spew.

Might try socializing first thing in the morning.
Air bag is off when he is in front seat.

Pup didn't seem scared of car at all just miserable after riding in it, out on highway. I've had dogs that were scared who never got sick. Even got pee'd on once a puppy was so scared first car ride. LOL

I have tried first thing in the morning, not feeding, nothing helped till I got him up front. Hopefully it is something that he will grow out of and I can transition him back into the back. I don't like having him up front, even though he is harnessed in, it makes me nervous.

carmspack dogs do get motion sickness . It can be a brain response to motion when there is no fixed point of focus . That is why facing forward or backward can solve this . Laika the astronaut dog was sent into space to test for motion sickness , among other things.

shepherdmom I think we have success. The weekend off and a front harness did the trick. Sat up looked around and didn't get sick today.
