Why is my dog nervous in the car?

The winning question from last month's newsletter: Why is my dog nervous in the car?

A dog who is nervous in the car - and anxious when the owner leaves the house without them. This dog was a rescue who was "left" somewhere and the family never returned for him. Be sure to always say where you are going and assure him you will be back (i.e. groomer, daycare, aunt Susie's). When you leave the house always say when you will be back (e.i. to feed you dinner, when the sun goes down). Since they don't know time per se they know when they are feeling hungry, or are visual when it gets dark for understanding the concept of time.
