    I don't know about log burners, but my dog Thanos was and still is afraid of car rides. He has pretty bad anxiety most of the time but it's a lot worse in cars. Here are some tricks that I used to get him used to it:

    - Try sitting in the car with them without actually driving anywhere

    - Have someone they know sit in the car with them and keep petting them if you are driving

    - Bring treats, lots of them

    - Cover them in a blanket

    - Go on extremely short rides at first and gradually increase the duration

    Keep in mind that this might take a while. Thanos is much better now but he still cannot be in a car for too long before he starts whinning and screaming again
