keep him on a long line that you can grab.
Set him up and correct him.
Masi would eyeball cars when we would walk on main roads, as a puppy, and sometimes lunge at them, I knew I had to do something just in case.
So everyday we would stand at the end of my driveway, when a car would approach before it even GOT to me,or got a reaction out of her, I'd tell her to leave it..if she even thought about 'lunging', she'd get a correction..
We walk everywhere, cars are everywhere, she doesn't even look at them anymore, of course she's mature now as well.
Work on your recall as well..you have to be more interesting than that car racing by, can be sometimes very hard for a dog/puppy to ignore something much more interesting tho deadly than us..but getting a solid recall will help..

I just had an incident where Hunter got past me at the front door and darted to the street. Usually it just takes a bit of coaxing and he's back inside. This time there was a car approaching and as it passed he sprinted after it barking. I kept yelling come as loud as I could and he stopped to look at me for a second before returning his attention to the car. Luckily the driver was paying attention and stopped to let me catch up and pick him up, but I am worried that he may not be so lucky in the future. When I picked him up all of his hair on his back was standing straight up. Is there anything I can do to stop car chasing? I know just making sure he doesn't get out is a good step but in case it does happen again in the future I want to be prepared.
