Dear Daisy Dog

I read your column about Marcus, the 90-pound German shepherd who refused to get into the car.

I have a 130-pound Doberman who had the same problem. I tried the techniques you suggested for a year. No luck.
A trainer tried for an additional year, but my Dobie would have none of it.

In frustration, I bought a 1991 Plymouth Grand Voyager van and removed the back seats. My Dobie jumped right in!

I guess he was trying to tell me that my old car wasn’t big enough for him.

Daisy Responds

What a wonderful mom you are, buying a car for your dog.
We all deserve the kind of love you’ve shown your Dobie, but too few of us belong to families as committed to their pets as you are. He’s a lucky dog.
