How old is your pup? My boy is 19 weeks and is in the brave/fearful stage. It's like mood changes from being brave then fearful at any given point. Which I read is normal at this age.

|simba405||he is clearly associating the car with something bad. Anything you can think of?|

|JagerBomb||I took my dog out again this evening and took him to the car to see if he wanted to get in and he did not want to go near it. I had treats too.|

|lauren43||What kind of car do you have? What is your dogs favorite treat or toy? Make a game of it while you are at home. If you have a car open both doors and run though it and play play. Tug and play. If you have a truck just reward getting in and out of the back. Or you could even go out and feed him dinner in the back of the car (with the door open of course)..|

New behavior on his Birthday
So my little guy just turned a year old today. His new behavior is not wanting to get into the car. He is fine and then when he sees me near the car he starts to buck and pull back on the leash. Later today I was at the petstore and he did not want to leave the store doing the same thing like the car bucking and pulling back hard. He did that 3-5 times before I could finally leave the store. It was annoying and embarrassing since he has never done it before. Any idea why he would do this. Again it just started happening and this is right out of nowhere. He never showed signs of this.
He is not a rescue dog, he well mannered, and very well behaved with good social skills.
Thanks for the help.
