Anybody else's GSD despise diesel trucks?

Especially the UPS guys. They even bought them a box milk bones The guys have to throw the bones, the dogs watch where they land and keep going after the couriers

You see, I'm not like a alpha,

I'm the ALPHA

Nope, but I hate diesel trucks. They are so loud, and always seem to honk their horn in front of my house.

Yes, Gunther hates them all ever since seeing the giant mechanical arm come out of the garbage truck. He just goes down the hall and hides from them until they are gone.

Nope but mine hates motorcycles but only when he's in my car.

Ever sit at a light and your whole car is rocking while this 90 lb. dog is trying to chew thru the glass to get to the motorcycle rider? Traffic lights need to change from red to green faster

Not my GSD 's, but my younger golden. He doesn't want anything to do with the garbage truck. I work in the garbage industry and we have met outside, giving him treats and unless the truck is stopped he wants nothing to do with it.

Not my GSD, but my Akbash Dog used to have a thing about diesel trucks. As I work from home, I had cars coming and going all the time and once he got used to that, he usually didn't bark at them. But every time a diesel pulled up he'd bark like crazy. Don't know if it's the sound, the smell, or what. Never did figure it out.

Mine doesn't try to hide from or attack diesel vehicles. But they're the only vehicles that make him pin his ears against his head when we're walking down the road. Could care less about anything else. He's shown a small interest in chasing down the whiny little motorcycles, but he knows better than to leave a heel.
