My dog used to get carsick. I got an elevated seat and that fixed the problem. He doesn't throw up anymore or drool. After a year now of nearly all superfun car rides (we drive to the dog park [1.5 mi away] a few times a week), he still acts like I'm asking him to walk the plank and turns into the saddest dog ever whenever we approach the car. Even with a thundershirt, he acts pathetic. The head down, tail between the legs, sometimes he just lays down on the grass and I have to pick him up or he just walks slowly and sadly - resigned. He behaves in the car, doesn't get sick, often just lays down and sometimes looks out the window. He's done a 9 hr car ride 2x now and done great. But yeah for a dog that many people wonder is he ever not happy? is he always so peppy? does he get mad at anything (when dogs try to bug or bark at him at the park, he just smiles and keeps playing)? the answer is yes - the car - turns into the saddest dog ever.
