Well thank you all for your uninformed opinions
I hoped that someone would have a bit of good information regarding training a dog not to chase cars.
Anyone can tie the dog up or stick him in a crate. It takes a bit of knowledge to train the dog.
I guess it was too much to expect from this group.

I have come and gone on here, hoping that some intelligent life exists on here and would provide for a constructive conversation. There seems to be a core group of morons on here that know nothing about training dog, but just love to give asinine answers and opinions.

Adios

Do come back and let us know when you've learned how to train your dog not to chase cars when not supervised. I'm interested in the answer to this one, and I'm sure many others are too.

And it takes even more knowledge to know when management is the most sensible solution.
Ian Dunbar says the most valuable advice he gives for the most behavior problems is:

1. hand feeding
2. stuffed kongs
3. total management (i.e., direct supervision or crating)

Even potty training isn't training as much as it is management - you don't allow the dog the OPPORTUNITY to make mistakes and create bad habits.

You want to break a habit. Therefore, the most important first step is to PREVENT it from recurring. Not to mention that it's a habit that can cost him his life.

It's a little black box, Lia. It'll cure this problem, and several others that you didn't even know he had. Want one?

I have read the posts today for the first time.
If your dog is chasing cars its easy one day he will get killed. Dogs like people get habbits...sometimes those habits do not change. If you do manage to train him that will be good.
However he could still make a mistake.
Is there no way you can keep him in?
Or even keep him on a lead.

I had the knowledge to train my supervised, well socialized Samoyed not to chase cars. However, I needed to start by keeping the dog on a leash. I now have a dog who is reliable off leash an no longer chases cars. Of course, I never let him run loose unsupervised, as that is not legal, not safe and simply taking an enormous chance with the well being of my beloved pet.
If you are actually interested in teaching your dog not to chase cars, you are going to have to start by stopping the behavior, which involves supervision and restraint. You can't wave a magic wand and have the dog be magically relialble out of doors, by himself. The process to train your dog not to chase cars will be a long one, and will take committment on your part. Are you still interested?

And we occasionally get visits from people who do asinine things like letting their dogs run loose.
If you don't want the dog to chase cars then put him on a leash. Once a dog gets this habit it's hard to break and often never goes away.

My dog Brandy used to chase cars before I got her. I worked hard on breaking her of it and it meant a lot of discipline and watching her like a hawk. The only place she is ever off leash is in a fenced yard or when we are at the cabin. Even there we have traffic on the camp road and she'd chase the cars if I didn't watch over her. She knows it's wrong but I can tell just from watching her body language if she thinks she can get away with it.
The last incident we had was when Mike took her for a walk in the woods at camp. I never thought to mention to him about her chasing cars it's been years since she's done it. This time he circled around and come in on the main road. And of course a car came by and she took off after a police cruiser. She wasn't hurt and the cop was nice about it. Since then she still goes for walks but she goes on the leash when getting to the main road because even though it's been years the urge is still there.
