View Full Version : Afraid of Bicycles

This morning when we were on our walk, a bicycle passed us and Bella stopped dead - she would not move. She was afraid of the bicycle! It surprised me as this is the first thing I have seen her be afraid of - she loves loves loves people so even though the man on the bike "clucked" at her she was having none of it!

Honey is afraid of horses, motorbikes and wheelchairs (?). Molly doesn't seem to be scared of anything!

Are your fur babies scared of anything?

Our oldest girl Penney is afraid of manhole covers, especially the ones for storm sewer with the grates where she can hear running water. Been that way from day 1.

Jaspar can be afraid of odd shapes like tipped over traffic cones -- Leo of platic bags blowing around. Both afraid of kids up to about age 7. :rolleyes: But aware they sometimes carry food that drops. :)

If Bella sees more bicycles -- leaning against a wall for example, where she can sniff at it, and going past with people on them -- she will probably get used to them and ignore them too.

The rain spout on the house. She used to happily jump over it until the day her leash got caught in it and it made a big racket. Ever since then she takes the looonnnnggg way around to get back to the house.
