  • Desensitize him to it. My dogs never did this except for one movie. I recorded that movie and just played that part over and over again until they did not even twitch an ear. You might try something that would distract the dog whether it is a noise maker or maybe even a water gun.

  • Keep on him, take him by the collar and make him lay down, keep putting him in his place. Dogs are very persistent but you can be more so. It takes a lot of time and likely many sessions of this, but he will soon get the hint :)
