This looks like a static shot, but it is actually a DOG ACTION SHOT taken in the trailer on our way back from Cherry Beach. Chomps was great in the trailer all the way there and all the way back: success! You can see how soggy he is from the lake. And I think he’s realized a ride in the trailer means a ride to the dog park, because we was getting in without any hesitation!
You can see the leash in his trailer, which doesn’t give him enough of a lead to get out, but does give him enough to turn around. That was the secret to getting him cool with his trailer: instead of trying to get him comfortable like he was in a crate (high value treats, etc), I just made it so it was less like a crate (open all the doors, let him stick his head out). He spent all of the ride with his head out the front of his trailer, and NO LIE:
one little girl said “AWWW!” so loudly she was almost shouting it.
then another little girl did the same
then when I biked by a family the mother said “Annie! Annie! Annie! Annie!” to make sure that Annie saw Chompsky in the trailer, and then Annie did precisely what the other two girls did.
