Getting Jack in car
by: Dennis

Have you tried slowly luring him with treats? That is what we did with ours. First we just brought him to sit next to the car, praised and gave him a treat. Did this a few times for a few days, then brought him to the car to sit next to it with the the doors open, then a day later lured him into the car with treats (keeping the doors open). Then the final step was being able to close the doors.
We did it slowly but surely to gain his trust. Now we don't have any issues.
