My puppy has always been a good car traveller but we've always had him in the backseat (with a correctly fitted car harness and belted in) and he's never been a problem. I recently called my local police dept to check whether he would be allowed in the front seat if harnessed in. They said that he would but they reccomend he goes in the boot of the car.
SO thats what ive been trying to do. However he keeps jumping up and peering over the back seat while im driving. I'm trying to find a decent dog guard now but they all seem to have bad reviews so need more time to research as i want to find a good one.
He's not big enough to jump over the seat but itd be better if he laid down and rested as its not safe him staning up like that! Plus its distracting looking at those puppydog eyes in my mirror while he's crying....
How did you train your pup to lie nicely in the boot? He has a blanket etc in there. Should he have toys? I sprinkled a few treats on the blanket thinking he'd associate the boot with something good but once he ate them he just kept jumping up again. How did you get them used to it? Am i handling it wrong?
Any advice would be helpful :)
