Dog Chasing Cars

by Dennis

How do I stop my dog from chasing after cars, or people riding by on their bicycles?

It is annoying to the driver, and may result in injury to my dog, and possibly the driver if overly distracted by my dog's behavior.

How to stop your dog from chasing cars
by: Gale

Hi Dennis. Dogs are so funny, they all have their own unique personalities and behavior issues. Sometimes it can be cute and funny, but sometimes, like in your case, it can be scary and potentially life threatening.

Chasing is a pretty natural instinct for dogs, but some breeds more so than others. Until your dog is 100% obedience trained, it?s important to keep him on a leash or in a fenced in area where he cannot under any circumstances chase the car or the bike.

Easier said than done, right?

First start training him in a controlled environment by teaching him obedience commands when there are no distractions. Then have someone you know ride by in a bike or a car and practice the commands. The key is consistency and patience and to keep going until your dog understands that it?s NOT acceptable to chase.

Most communities offer free or low cost obedience classes that teach all the must-have obedience basics in a group setting where your dog can get used to listening to you in a distracting environment.

Good luck
