My dog hates baths and a leash so does that mean that I have beat him??? Nope he just doent like them.
Ok sorry for the hijack that's just one of my pet peves.
Agreed...I've had puppies from the time they were weaned (and knew the breeder), who grew up to "hate" certain things...they were never abused.
Chances are the dog was just never really introduced to the car when he was young, and just grew to fear it...your own attitude "oh, fido, it's okaaaayyyy!!!" can greatly amplify a dog's suspicious attitude over something.
