Had another session with Holli tonight. Holli is a Labrador Retriever who gets very excited in the car. Before we started her behavior modification she would bark nonstop for the duration of the ride. After several weeks of desensitization and counter-conditioning she is much better - alternating between some whining and quiet time. It may take a few more weeks until we finally reach our goal of a quiet, and calm, backseat passenger, but we will get there!
