How do I stop my dog chasing runners?

When on a walk, teach your dog to sit, stay, and let the jogger go by. Reward your dog for not chasing or leaping towards the jogger. If the treat is especially tempting like a piece of cheese or a piece of a hot dog, your dog may look at you and ignore the jogger completely. This will take some time and repetition.
