Have Dog Training Questions? Ask a Dog Trainer.
My name is ***** ***** I’ve been involved professionally with dogs in the health and behavioral fields for over 18 years. It will be my pleasure to work with you today.
In order to supply you with an informed answer, it is necessary for me to collect some additional information from you. When I receive your response or reply, it will likely take me between 30-45 minutes to type up my reply if I am still online when I receive notice that you replied. I hope you can be patient.
So what situation are you trying to prepare for?
The more detail and background information I have, the better I'll be able to answer. Be sure to include breed, age, etc.
I saw your other question but it only stated what you have here. I believe you were interacting with the website itself and not the trainer as that particular expert isn't online often. There doesn't appear to be any other questions with an actual question on it under your user id. If you could repeat the question, I can help you. I suspect ithe information was lost.
Thanks for the additional information, it is helpful.
I agree with you that it is likely she will adjust pretty quickly to the change but I also understand your concerns. I can give you an idea that may help her adjust to this a little easier. create a barrier that will block the car from her view such as a hanging tarp. You could start by lowering it half way so she only sees half of the car, then progressively lower it until she can not see the car at all. Doing this before you move will at least give her the security of the home she has lived in as a source of helping relieving any anxiety. This will let her get used to not seeing you actually get in and out of the car. Then when you get to the new house, she will see the car leave and associate it with you leaving.
This is what I believe will be the best way to aclimate her to the new car location in the new house. If you can not block the carport view perhaps blocking it closer to the window would achieve the same purpose.
You might also get a DAP collar to help keep her calm and less anxious during the move. They are proven effective for anxiety situations. They can be purchased online, in pet stores and in the vet's office.
