I was part of the other thread on this. Cruz still does this but it's random. My theory is it has alot to do with his prey drive. I've yet to find a silver bullet so to speak of to get him to totally stop.
I've tried all the mentioned techniques, sitting, turning, verbal corrections, popping the leash, treating for not jumping at cars ect. I have also tried just sitting near a busy street with him and socialise him with moving cars too. Some work some of the time but none work all the time.
But every dog is different too. Not all dogs respond to the same things. Your dog may respond well to one of the suggested techniques. You just have to try them.
I hope one works for you as Cruz suprised me one morning and now have one ankle larger than the other. As I said it came out of the blue, but it goes to show it can be dangerous for the dog, but just as dangerous for the owner.

|Sarah~||My boy had this EXACT problem. When cars went by he dragged me into them, once he nearly got us both killed by a school bus! We did as everyone here said, I had him sit by the road and as cars went by I had him focus on me and gave him lots of treats. I had to start pretty far back as he wouldn't even take treats if we were too close. We made our way closer and closer and now he barely notices them unless they drive by too close (jerks).|

|Mary Beth||There was another thread on this, and the suggestion was to train the dog to sit when a vehicle goes by You may want to try that. If that doesn't work out for you, you could try turning suddenly so that she has to follow you and reward her for following. Also try to keep Xyla on the side away from the traffic. I would also keep her on heel when there is traffic -again so she has to concentrate on you and what you are doing.|

Goes nuts when cars go by
Xyla walks nice on a leash with no pulling. She is 6 months old as of today. But when a vehicle goes by she goes nuts! Anyone have any idea how to correct this?
