First, we have a doggie behavior question from Dana  Dekker.

Question 1:

Dear Karma Korner, my dog Fripsy gets very excited when I take her in the car. We go shopping 3 times a week. Fripsy insists on sitting in the front passenger’s seat next to me. I think it would be safer if she was in the back seat, but she won’t stay there. Yesterday, she reached out and grabbed the steering wheel with her paws. We ended up in a bush after just missing a Bus head on !!! What should I do?

~ Dana  Dekker.

Answer 1:

Dear Dana, our new dog trainer, Grace, welcomes your rather challenging question, about your pet dog, Fripsy, who insists on sitting in the front seat of your car – and even attempting to steer the car. Heaven forbid. Grace suggests you either tie Fripsy in the back seat, or purchase a child’s car seat for the back, and tie her into that. You also might like to consider buying dog diapers. Just in case, you know!

General Recommendations For All Dog Lovers:

Tune in to your dog or puppy by talking softly, and modulating your
Voice in attunement with canine intuition. Let your voice tone rise and fall naturally, so the dog keeps paying attention to your tone and emotional mood. Stay positive.
