And most of the time we find them chasing and barking behind the moving vehicles. Dogs keep chasing the moving vehicles even though there is nothing suspicious about those cars. Time has come when we have found out why they do so.
No, they are not crazy dogs, read below to find out
1. Recall the revenge of the past
There is the possibility that a dog who is running or chasing a car had seen death by a vehicle in the past. So they chase to show revenge.
2. They take it as an intruder
Dogs are very loyal and have a very strong smelling power. Even though they are stray dogs, they know the smell of everything in their area. They instantly recognize the strange smell and start chasing them and bark in order to show their anger. This is the same behavior your pet shows when a stranger enters your house. Not just your pet barks at them but the courageous one chases them out, too. In the case of stray dogs, they are more powerful and courageous since they live on the street.
3. Natural impulse

When they chase and bark expresses their way of confronting the evil that they might think the vehicle to be. They feel that the running vehicle is an intruder and running so they just bark and chase to show that they’re going to pin you down.
