On the tenth day of my 30-day challenge to take my dog to 30 new places, Ace and I traveled to Wisconsin to visit family. That in itself was something fairly new, but Ace has been to my parents’ house many times. On the way though, I made sure to stop at some new places where Ace could get out, including a rest-stop with a pet area and a very busy McDonald’s. Ace thought the McDonald’s was a lot more exciting than the rest-stop. He did no crying in the car during our five-hour trip. That might be a first!

  1. When we first got mazzie she didn’t seem to like car rides and the vet gave us a small pill to give her to relax her, etc. (same with thunder storms) but one 3 hour trip I said lets just see what happens. Since then no pills for car trips or storms and she does great.

  2. I keep remembering your 30-day challenge because we are seriously thinking about adopting a Great Dane puppy. We’ll want to socialize him by exposing him to lots of new places before he’s 4 months old. But do the places have to be new to you AND the dog, or just to the dog? I think I could manage a daily trip to places that are new to the puppy, but familiar to me.
