Ways to Help a Nervous Dog Travel


Start preparing your dog for travel well in advance. This will give them time to get used to the idea and feel more comfortable.


 Make sure your dog has positive experiences with travel from the start. This could involve taking them on short car rides or walks in the park.


If your dog is nervous about car rides, try taking them on a train or bus instead. This can be a less stressful way to travel.


Bring your dog's favorite blanket, toy, or bed to help them feel more at home.

Be patient

It may take some time for your dog to get used to traveling. Be patient and understanding, and don't force them to do anything they're not comfortable with.


If your dog is very nervous or anxious about travel, you may need to get professional help from a certified animal behaviorist.


Reward your dog for good behavior during travel, such as staying calm or sitting quietly. This will help them associate travel with positive experiences.
