“Yeah, Mickey, you might be a border collie and need to chase things, but it WON’T be cars!”, said me inside my head to no one. 😉
This 15 week old puppy was afraid of cars and then decided he had the power to chase them away AT THE FENCE-LINE! Yikes..
What if this becomes a habit and he barks along with it? What if he starts chasing them on leash? What if he ever gets off-leash near a road or starts chasing a car?
So… time for a plan.
I have a few ways to work on this but I’m going to start with the 3 most important steps to stop Mickey from chasing cars and these have gone into effect as of… yesterday!

Thanks for watching and reading and now I’d love to hear from you.

Great ideas in your tool box. The recall and long leash will both come in handy for reversing a variety of precarious situations. Good luck!!!
Thank you, Cynthia! I agree. I am going to need those!
OMIGOODNESS, anxious to see the success of your “car” diversions, good tips!! Mickey, your mommy is not so pleased! xoxo
haha! Well… the last time I changed a habit in my dog, it took about 3 months! With Mickey, this habit of watching and wanting to chase cars only happened a couple times and that’s all it took. The double-edged sword of a fast learner. Yikes.
