So I am trying to train Ted not to growl and bark and lunge when cars go by. When we are on a walk and the odd car goes by I try and get his attention as soon as I hear a car coming and get Ted to sit, and give him treats while the vehicle is going by. Once or twice a week in the morning I walk up to the highway and we stand there and I give him a treat when he doesn't lunge and bark....!
Good old Ted has now figured out that when we go that way and I stand there while cars go by, that if he just sits quietly facing me, I will give him a treat when a car drives by. I'm pretty sure that the message and training I did with him has failed. I'm pretty sure that when he is sitting in front of me that he is actually laughing at me
