Car palava

My puppy barks at cars. I think he is scared of them. How can I stop it?

  1. Walk him slightly away from traffic at first, such as in a nearby field, and reward for calm behaviour with food rewards if this motivates your individual dog. Pay some games, and the next day, move a fraction closer, still with food, toys, praise, and a positive atmosphere. Any bad reactions, go back a few steps. Sometimes you must take a few steps back to take more steps forward in the long run. Build this up very gradually until you can reward your dog whilst walking along the street.
