All of mine are quiet while riding. Z, Kes, and Aeri all flop down and fall asleep almost as soon as the car starts, Snipe alertly watches out the window while we drive. All of them ride crated or belted, so I think that has helped teach them to just chill, especially when combined with the 1hr+ drives to training regularly.

Snipe does loudly guard the car when it stops, though that has been abating as she gets more used to the travel routine.

Mine are all really great. Psyche hunkers down all like "Okay, we're going somewhere fun, so I'mma keep my energy!" Simi looks around at first then sleeps. Zoey is excited when we get there, but besides that just hangs out. Crash is a little more "hey, hey, hey, hey, where we going? Hey! Hey! Where are we going?! HEY!" but he's not loud, just takes longer to relax.

I'm really lucky they're all so good to travel with.

Great on long journeys, whines like a mofo on short journeys to the point I want to stop the car and do a damage.

Juno's good. She just sits up front in the passenger seat staring out the window. And eventually falls asleep sitting up with her face smooshed up to the window lol.

Lucy is.... eh. She's very anxious. Her behavior is fine and she'll lie down, but she tends to get sick. It's not as bad now as it once was, but it's not uncommon for her to get all drooly and/or throw up.

Eve is a pro in the car. If we're going on short trips I toss her in the backseat, if the car is full she hops in the car and sits between my legs on the floor.

My dogs travel AMAZINGLY. We just did a four hour drive yesterday and there wasn't a single peep out of either one the entire time. At times I forgot they were even in the back they were so quiet.

& Sally, never forgotten.

A love for traveling, and handling it well, are a requirement here!

Zealand likes to sit upfront and put his head out the window, if possible. Or at least look out the window, if it can't be rolled down for whatever reason.

Everyone else curls up in the back seat and waits for us to arrive!

The bulldogs NEVER got car sick. Jolene's car ride home was almost 3 hours, and she just sat in the back seat looking adorable. Zealand's was two and a half hours, and he slept in his crate (after driving from Montana to California a few days before!). Ruger was local, and I think I remember him whining on the way home in a crate... but not after that. Bukra, on the other hand, got sick as a pup... then graduated to drooling Newfoundland-amounts. Then, he was fine! Until... we started hunting and racing. Now, he gets anxious and shakes terribly if we go in that direction lol Peshamba is a pain to get into and out of the vehicle (whereas everyone else jumps right in), but once she's in, she's fine and likes to look out the window.
