After posting this I did go out & buy a safety harness but I have to say, I HATE it. fter driving only about 3 miles Dallas has tangled himself in it so well that he was suffocating himself & I had to pull over on the side of the road to untangle him. It was scary & since I have only used it twice for fear that he'll do it again. For those who use this, am I doing something wrong?!? I just put it on him & slipped the seatbelt through the top loop but he kept going in between the belt & the seat thus causing the harness to tangle to the point of him being cut off at the neck!
I did use the crate to drive up to Orlando to visit Michelle because of how long of a trip it was but not only did he pee in the crate twice but he screamed the ENTIRE way there! I tried giving him everything from a kong filled wit kibble & peanut butter to a bully stick but he showed no interest.
Any other suggestions?
Keep taking him for rides… start with short ones maybe just around the block... make sure the crate is "stable" in the car and doesn't rock around with him in it... and if necessary, buy earplugs... they all need to be contained when in a vehicle...
