|I wouldn't try to round up a dog from a car. Sometimes loose dogs have either been recently hit or almost hit so they're naturally skittish of anything coming from a car. It's better to park and walk to the general area where the dog's been hanging around.
I agree with Savannah. Even though it was cold, last time I had to round up a loose fella...I fortunately happened to be frying up a ham steak in the house. I just went near the spot the guy had been recently and sat down holding the fragrant ham chunk. He came around in about ten minutes. He obviously could smell my dog and was already attracted to the yard. You generally have hunger on your side. Slow movements and calm soothing words will get them to approach more often than not right along with the yummy stuff. He was a really nice B & T coonhound, had him back with his owner in a few hours.
Give it another shot and good luck. It is a terrific feeling to give back a missing pup.
