    My dog is scared of the Garbage truck/School bus?

    I have no clue why but we were outside in the wooden fenced in back yard early before I went to work and the garbage truck came down my street and turned around in the dead end of my road. Right when the truck started pumping his loud air compressed brakes and smashing the trash she started trembling almost to the point of not being able to stand up. It's a little better if I get down on her level and pet her and say it's ok but she eventually takes off towards the door and wants to go in jumping on the door. She has not had a negative run in with either but it has happened twice now. She can also see the garbage truck while it is doing this so she knows where it is coming from. Why so scared?

    It may just be because it's so big and loud. She just may have never seen one of those big scary things that make loud noises before. Dogs are funny, maybe she got stung by a bee, when she happened to see a garbage truck and made that association, who knows. One thing you can stop doing is petting her when she's feeling scared. It's human to want to calm her and tell her everything is okay, but in doggy language you are actually telling her that you want her to feel this way and are praising her for feeling this way when she sees the garbage truck. Ignore her when she acts like that, it's hard I know. Act like the garbage truck is no big deal.
    To prevent her acting like this, when you know the garbage truck is going to come, prepare yourself in advance with some special yummy treats. Maybe she should only get these treats in the presence of a garbage truck. Begin to distract her with these treats before she notices the truck. Food overcomes fear.
    Let her make a positive association with the garbage truck. Garbage truck=steak, what fun! Maybe this association will start in the back yard, with a fence as a barrier. At her pace, don't force her, it may take weeks or months, you may end up at the curb next to the garbage truck feeding her special treats and she won't react.
    Good Luck!
