My dog hates going to the vet and will try to open the car door. What can I do to make her stop?

She is a pappion pappy-yawn she is a very small breed. She is very smart and knows how to unlock car doors. How do I make her stop?

Put her in a crate. It will keep her from trying to escape and get her into the vet's office easier. You may also try working on training the dog to accept the vet better. Give treats while at the vet so she starts to think as the vet as a good place to go. I also used a Thundershirt for awhile to help my dog with her anxiety. She loves going to vet now.

Put her in a porta-kennel when she is in the car.

Harness and a seat belt. I use one on my dog for rides in the truck.

Put her in a kennel for the ride. She may not like it, but it's much safer than having her open the locks on the door.
