2nd August, 2013 Moonlighting
David's turn to earn his keep and the motorbike's too. Last time Oscar saw a motorbike he tried to leave for home. By working closely with the motorbike we hope to educate him that he needn't be afraid. David is armed with treats so that if Oscar is brave enough to get really close he can be rewarded for his efforts. We also asked him to follow the bike at walk and trot and he did become rather enthusiastic (and much closer than this early picture below shows). We ended the session with him following it loose with me there just to make sure that he didn't touch the exhaust or get entangled with any of the sticky out bits.
