Default Exercise, little food, and Benadryl

Hi Dave,

The pre-flight formula seems to be lots of exercise, very little food, and bit of Benadryl. If they are worn out, the benadryl seems to put them right out.

Crates usually won't fit in the RV, so we remove the pass seat and put a pad down. I tie the leash around the flap housing, but I'm not sure it would do much if he really wanted to get up and go.

You get a real good idea how the dog will do in the first minute once the engine starts. In my experience (3 trips now) they lay right down and go to sleep.

Good luck finishing your plane - maybe we can relay a dog or two to a new home.
