Puppy Pug incredibly excited near traffic
Hi there guys!
I am new to this forum and I am looking for some help!
My 7 month old pug Barney seems to get really excited and energetic during walks when we approach roads with cars passing by. When we first got him he was completely scared of traffic however now it is as if he wants to chase cars down the road. He jumps around, excessively pants and lets out a really high pitched squeal whilst pulling towards traffic. When away from traffic or walking along natural trails he is so well behaved and a completely different pup.
Does anyone have any recommendations as to how to try and combat this behaviour? Treats and discouraging him away from the road seems to make no difference! :(.
