My sheltie is 6 years old and absolutely hates car rides. We havent really had her in the car very much but we want to start taking her places with us. Is there any way to make her like the car?

Hi there. Turn the car into a fun game for your sheltie. She gets 'special' treats in the car, like weiners or chicken- whatever she would find as high-value. Take her short distances to a park where she can have a game of fetch, or whatever her idea of fun is. She will associate the car with fun. Make sure to praise her and reward her for any positive reactions to the car ride.
