Rather than the usual sprint for dear life, I drew the thing out for about a mile and a half, slowing down and speeding up. As it became tired and panted like mad I turned the tables, armed with a referee whistle I turned round and started chasing the dog. The sound of the whistle was filled with my laughter of seeing this poor dog petrified by a madman on a bike with it's tail between its legs. It did the trick, who knows what this saturday will be like. Watch this space...
