In my car?.......
OK might seem a bit odd to ask but why does my dog froth at the mouth and dribble all over the place when he is in my car?
Can dogs be car sick?
I do open the back window for him but this then vibrates the car and does my head in when any speed is picked up.
The car is not too hot if anything cold when window is open.
The poor bugger looks like he has Rabies when he gets out.
Is this normal???
Forgot to say he is a 6 month old border collie so not a particularly slavery dog IMO.
Thanks in advance
Discuss it with the vet?

Try cornering a little slower, Diddy

What do you drive, he might just be embarrased and be trying to get you to leave him at home.
And thanks Kate for the only words of wisdom so far i will ask da vet,but i dont fancy drugging him up as this would take all the fun out of taking for a walk. ..

Cover the backseats and except the fact he'll puke everywhere. They soon get used to it if your not soft with em.
This in turn will cause a chain reaction of kids spewing all over the back of the car and my head .
Hope he does not spew but if he can get used to it then i need not worry!
I have tried putting him in the boot (mondeo estate with netting for dogs) but at the moment he can squeeze thru the sides and climbs into the back seats .
Gratuitous Jack the Beagle photie
I found my dog at Christmas. We went back to a mates to pick up some CD's in a snow storm and this stray puppy dog came up to the car.
We fussed her for a bit and then drove off. The dog stood in the middle of the road, looking at us driving away. We stopped, opened the back door, she then legged it down the road, jumped in to the car and we drove off (she puked everywhere) but 14 years later is still with us!
not the best but taken with my phone camera!
Nice story that rocky
Might as well put all my pictures up now

Have you thought about a cage? Jack the Beagle has one, and all the SARDA dogs I know have cages in their owners' van / car. Jack's doubles up as his 'bed' when he's away from home.Gratuitous Jack the Beagle photie And can we have a photie of your puppy, Diddy, so we know who we're talking about?
That's a suspiciously budgie green colour Mrs Diddy's wearing - it's surely not Haglofs?
No thats doggy puke ...
Not that I have any answers but what exactly is the dog doing when it's drooling/puking/whatever? is he scared, excited, what?
Ours pants like crazy slobers over everything and bounces around like he's Johnny Rotten, and has the best time of his life in The Truck (shhhh just dont say that word else he might hear....
Anyway, recommend the crate option. Best thing we did.
Nothing at all he just sits or lies there dribbling,slobbering at the mouth no sick as yet .
Its not like we force him into the car either.we offer him water before and after the journey as well.
Probably just something he is going to have to get used too i think.
Might have to buy cage number two as its a reall bother only having one.
Nothing at all he just sits or lies there
Well that's better than throwing up, being too scared to go in it/etc. I think I'd just carry on doing the ignore the bad behaviours and treat him for good behaviour - like give him a treat once you are out of the car and walking and he's a happy dog again.
Hope he gets used to it!
Are you going to bring him to the Langdale meet?
