If a car drove down our road and it looked like a cat, I'd have a problem. But no, my GSD has no interest in chasing cars.

nah, both dogs are trained to focus only on me when they are not sniffing out a place to go to the bathroom, or we are at a dog park. They don't chase anything other than other dogs at the park, and even then, it's only after they look to me and I give permission.

Yes if my Boy Ranger was not on a leash I'm sure he would. I always have treats for him and make him face away from the car and try to distract him by saying "leave it" or want to go bye bye as it helps but if he wasn't on a leash I know he would go after it. He hates golf carts and especially rabbits.

The only car chaser I’ve ever had was a black lab that was my ex’s dog. Very soon after we had my second son, we were both sleep deprived and basically walking zombies. He left the gate open when he left for work (had to open gate, drive out, close gate). She got out, went car chasing and was sadly hit by a car. Someone saw it happen, and picked her up, and knocked on my door. She had a severed spine, among many other injuries. I had to hold her while my husband came back to take her to the vet to be put down. It was a very horrible experience, and I’m glad to have never had another car chaser.
