If you are a “dog person,” chances are you understand dogs and their desire to get to ride in cars and hang their heads out of windows or up through the sun roof. My dogs have always loved getting to ride in the car.
They seem to enjoy the riding part, and when I come to a stop or slow down; they seem to get a little excited. The dogs are hoping for a new adventure, a new smell or a new patch of uncharted grass I suppose.
There are dog experts who like to discuss the various reasons they think dogs enjoy car rides so much. Some of these experts think that it is the “hunter” aspect and dogs associate the ride in the car with going on a hunt.
