We have a beautiful new Airedale puppy called Geoff. He is 6 months old.
He has only been with us 2 days, so things are new, and I know he will take a while to settle in and get comfortabe.
However in our 2 car trips so far (home from the airport and down to the local shops) he has howled blue murder. To the extent that people were winding down their windows of their cars looking for the person torturing their dog.
When he gets out of the car he is really wound up and toey, as you would expect after howling for half an hour.
When the car isn't moving he stops, but as soon as it goes again he goes off. We have done one trip in a crate, and one trip in a harness but the reaction has been the same both times.
Before we went out yesterday we sat in the car without the engine on. He was tense but not panting or yelping. As soon as we went out the driveway, boom or rather yowl.
Any suggestions as to how I can help him to chillax. I don't want this to become his default for car travel.
Thanks in advance for your help.
