I have a 4 mo old and when we are walking she will sit or lay down at the edge of the road to my side every time she sees a car getting close. She isn't afraid of cars she loves riding in the car and will even chase my fiance to the endf of the driveway until I tell her to stop and she will come back but i cannot get her to keep walking when a car is passing. I know it is kind of a good thing she is cautious but how can I get her to still be catious but keep walking?

It is something new to her it is not the car but the sound it is making being inside one she feels more secure she is used to that everything they see smell hear while walking will be new they need to be adjusted and get used to it more walks and reassure her that it is alright.Try putting her on her leash and just walk her around the yard while cars pass.
