Q. My dog has suddenly begun wanting to chase cars and trucks. How do I stop this behavior?

Answered By

A. I really recommend working with an experienced professional trainer on this. It can turn into a life or death situation and needs to be handled seriously. There are a number of "set ups" (in a controlled environment) that can be used to teach, or correct the dog with this behaviour and depending on the type of training and how bad the scenario is will depend on what types of set ups are used.
