Dogs chasing cars

Postby M5farm » Thu Jul 25, 2013 2:27 pm

In another thread I saw "dogs chasing cars" and it got me thinking. I don't see alot of dogs chasing cars like I did when I was younger. I suppose it could be that cars/trucks don't make the noises that they used to make . I know when I was growing up no matter where you went the dogs chased cars. if my neighbor comes by the house on one of his older trucks my dogs will chase him for a while but he is the only one.

My Blue Heeler had a brief flirt with that habit. A shock collar did the trick. Could be the shock collar technology.

We've got 3 big mix breed yard dogs. They don't chase traffic in the road. They don't chase my truck or car, don't chase my sons car,don't chase my Dad's truck or car. They chase my wife out the drive and down the road everytime she leaves. She gets a new car, they chase it. They won't chase her car if I'm driving but will if I'm riding and she is driving but they will stop if I tell them to.
Drives her nuts and I think it hilarious.

Had some neighbors that lived at the end of the road whose dogs chased cars. When they started running beside me I would slowly driftcloser and closer until the ran into the ditch. Only took a couple of times and they quit chasing me, chased everyone else though.

A grumpy old man here used to loosen one lug nut and wrap a rag around stud, then tighten nut. When a dog grabbed the rag as it spun with the wheel, it would launch the dog into the ditch or snap its neck. Everyone in town always wondered why the rag was attached to his wheel all the time. We lost several dogs to that mans meanness

I was in a truck the other day and guys says " give me that paddle" which he proceeds to swat when a heeler come running ! Better than running the heeler over..he wasn't so kind w the one coming in the garage stealing dog food .
