well all ours had about a 6 and a half hour car journey home so it was a combination of at my mums feet(step dad was driving) and cuddles , but for an hour id just say on you lap, just pop a blanket on your lap and rap him up. he will probably cry a bit but that is normal, new people, new car, new smells, his litter mates aren't there. but just relax and just give him time to calm down, maybe bring some treats or a chew, but not to much threats as you don't want him to be sick.
i don't think he would need a pee brake for only an hour drive but at least one shouldn't hurt.
I wouldn't get him out and put him on the ground, especially if at a service station where lots of other dogs have been. Either take a tray or box with something absorbent in the bottom (not newspaper as it doesn't soak up any liquid) although it's unlikely the puppy will figure out what to do or take a few old towels and a bin liner and if puppy does have an accident stick the towel in the bin bag and get a fresh towel. If he does wee it will only be a little bit as he's only teeny. Flo had a 3 hour journey and never wee'd.We're picking our new puppy up on Saturday. He will be on my wife's lap for a 2.5 to 3 hour journey. Should we stop half way for a pee break? That would mean putting a collar and lead on him. Would that be too stressful for him with everything else being new to him?
Also, without jabs he can't go outside so how do we do it mid journey?
Ohhhhhh........... I was getting so excited yesterday. A bit weird when old threads get re-started - must remember to keep an eye on post dates. Poor Andy, I think he was expecting you to appear on his doorstep over the weekend clutching a puppy...Sussed .... and there was me trying to do it on the quiet, was going to get us all three one, what a lovely friend x x
