Intent to Chase
How to handle a dog for whom life is about chasing cars ó and all else.
Ms. Coombs, we feel your pain. Many of us at the Cummings School love dogs who love to chase. ďItís a common problem,Ē says Tufts animal behaviorist Stephanie Borns-Weil, DVM. ďAnd itís why, in the old days, when people let their dogs out by themselves, so many of them were killed. When I was a veterinary student, I once saw a dog who had been hit by a snow plow and was in the ICU for several weeks.
