Well horses do stroll around my neighborhood, I had my dogs on the lawn and there were 5 horses right next dog!
I guess the horses were being calm and balanced, so my guys so no need to say anything!! The walk was canceled that day!
I would rather they have said something before we wondered into the street!

|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.|

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.|

Air bag can kill him if you have one.
They say dogs do not get motion sickness like people do, that it is caused by nerves. The only thing to do is desensitize the dog to the car. Many quick trips around the block and quit. And then as he becomes more calm, make it two blocks. I don't know how true that is though.
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.

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.
