Aussie Barks and Snarls In Car. What's A Doggie Mom To Do?
I was sleeping you know....
My Aussie is 2 years old, she loves going on rides in the car, she will go anywhere with me really, not just in the car and I love the company.
If I am in the car however, and stopped and someone gets too close, she starts to bark and snarl, her hair stands on end, and she doesn't want anyone near the car, including the same people who may have just gotten out of it.
If I am not in the car, and she is riding with someone else, or I get out to mail a letter, people can admire how pretty she is, tap on the window, etc. but as soon as I am in or near the car the barking, snarling and hair standing on end happens again. I have tried everything, but can't get this to stop, she does it if I am stopped at a traffic light and scares the pedestrians walking the street.
Any ideas why she does this and how I can break the habit. I love my Lilly , but this is a problem and I don't want to have to leave her behind all the time.
Thanks Lilly's doggie mom.
