Making progress

The progress is slow and sometimes we go backwards, but I am seeing improvements in her attitude around the car. Today she was wagging her tail as we left the house, normally she’s concerned because we might go in the car. She spent less time sniffing and was able to not only take treats near the car, she was able to sit and do hand touches right next to the back hatch. The only time she balked at taking food was when I fully opened the front door, I’ll spend more time reinforcing her while I touch the handle and then just pulling the handle. I am very happy with her attitude today and hope she’s starting to feel less trepidation about the car. I think the fact that we’ve stopped all car trips help too.
