Default Petsmart trip w/the kids :)

I got a clicker/whistle/training book set to work with my pups. I think they'll do really well with it!

It was Emma's first trip to PetSmart and she was beyond excited. She had so much fun visiting with the other dogs!

The only downside was that she gets carsick and she did really well until we were on the way home.. it takes about 45 minutes each way to get to Petsmart. I've been taking her for short rides and sometimes she does okay, and most of the time she pukes

Is there anything I can do to help her with this? I brought a flat puppy bed and some toys and a blanket so she could snuggle in and get comfortable. Is this something she might need to take a medication for?

I plan on taking my pups with me to Puerto Rico this spring and she'll need to travel so I'm trying to get her used to it!

try one of the booster seats for dogs, being able to see out of the window might help her with the car sickness.

Thanks Foxy! I actually saw one at Petsmart that was a little bucket thing, I thought she might feel more cozy and safe in there =)

Aw, sounds like you guys had fun! That is so funny that it was her first time there cause we just took Dillon for his 1st trip to petsmart today too! It's exactly 45 minutes away from us as well... Dillon met a lot of friends, petSmart is such a great store!

Aww, that sounds like a really nice day. I LOVE Petsmart. I know Millie used to get carsick but once she got used to it more she just stopped getting sick. For her it was a nervousness thing. Is it more that she's nervous that makes Emma sick or is it just the movement?

Momof2- I think it could be the nervousness. She passes back and forth a lot before she finally settles down in the backseat. It's just every trip over 15 minutes we've ever taken she's thrown up, so I'm not sure if it's a combination of both or what! I felt so bad because I took her and she got carsick, but I knew she'd have fun!

Brittany- I think you and I are like cosmically connected! LOL We took our pups to the vet the same day AND the pet store! So weird!!

Lizmo- That IS weird! I just moved back home from Boston about 10 months ago, so I'm so used to everything being RIGHT there, it's weird to have to drive!

Did you buy little clothes for your 3 overly cute pooches while you were there?
