Trainer Jen suggested that we do some work with Dewey so that he begins to think about the car as a happy and fun place. So today we had a little party in the driveway. I sat in the passenger's seat, and he sat just outside while I gave him some stinky salmon treats.
No pressure. He was glad to just sit there (Dewey is a very content little guy). Just him and me and some kibble that smelled like a fish's butt. And we sang some songs.
And I cannot lie
When those butts get in my eye.
And then we went back inside. I won't be surprised if the neighbors report me as being unbalanced. I've got to think of more songs...
