Black Labrador Retriever Afraid of Car Rides - part I

Subject: Black Labrador Retriever Afraid of Car Rides - part I

From: Linda (USA)

Labrador Retriever Name: Bailey

Reader's E-mail: Linda Writes:


I have a 3 year old black lab. Had her since she was 11 weeks old. Loves car rides and going EVERYWHERE with us, even camping and long car rides. Suddenly, about a month ago, she became a afraid of car rides. Now, she hesitates getting into the car and pants real hard, while I'm driving. She also tries to jump into my lap.

I don't know what to do or why this suddenly happened. Any advice? We love taking our lab with us everywhere and now it's become a real hassle.

Thanks, Linda

Hello Linda,

I don't want you to think I forgot about you. Just receive many letters and it takes me time. I didn't tie the two e-mails together from the All About Labs site and Labrador Retriever Pictures site as you being the owner of Bailey. Don't know if you received my e-mail about her pictures being posted (must change the name of the photos from on that posting).

Let me ask you:

Did anything bad ever happen before a car ride or inside the car?

Will have a reply for you shortly. Thanks for your patience.

Thanks, the pictures look great!

Nothing bad happened to her in my car that I know of. Also, I found out that she only gets weird while in my car alone with me. When I'm with my husband, she seems better and when she's in his car, she looks as happy as can be.

I'm trying everything from treats to really short car rides, to car rides that result in a fun trip like dog park or a visit to that she'll associate a car as fun. Don't know what else to do.....
