It all started when my dog was young. At 6 months old a lady wanted us to have him and took him to a local bank not too far from my house. I ended up walking there to pick him up but when we actually tried walking home with him I noticed how he wouldn’t move. I had to carry him home because he was too afraid of cars. I got started on his training as soon as I could but he would barely leave the outside of my house. Now he’s a year old and the most I’ve been able to take him is about a quarter of a mile. When we start to get near busy streets he freaks out. I can tell he’s anxious because he won’t take treats or toys when I try to reward him for getting farther then he has before. He also is hesitant to get inside a car and pulled trying to get away from getting inside. Once I finally get him inside, he doesn’t stop shaking no matter what. So please, what do I do to help my dog be less afraid of cars? As of right now I’ve just been walking him to the busy street and sitting there with him while I try to desensitize him from the sound of cars but it’s not working. I’ve never known anyone else with this problem nor do I know how to fix it.
