Crazy dog in the car!
I have a 12 year old springer spaniel who has always traveled with us in the car with extreme ease. She would sleep 90% of the trip and these are 9-10 hour trips. About a year ago she started her new behavior which is standing shaking hard panting drooling the entire time. Sometimes she finds a place to pee in the car. I have a tahoe and we've tried various areas, blankets, positions,etc. Right now I have both back windows covered and a board separating her from us in the front seat because the panting is driving us insane, I've even tried a tranquilizer from vet...it makes her drowsy but she still pants and won't sleep....please help!!! Desperate in the car!....and yes, we sometimes leave her at home which she doesn't like either....spoiled rotten I guess :)
