when i had a gsd years back(lost her to epilepsy at 18mths)she was a bike ceashr also,(tho when off the lead she always came back when called, anyway i took it upon myself to teach her the down and stay command coz i thought if i had that cracked, if a bike was to come past i could put it into practice .so i started her on the down command first, and no joke she mastered it in 30 minutes, so i then moved on to the stay and coz she loved her tennis ball i used that to help, i put her in the down and moved a away with her ball while saying “stay” and after a few goes i could move away with her still “down” and focusing on her ball, so decided when i was out and i saw a bike i would see wot happens and low and behold a bike was approaching so i put her in the “down” and told her to stay and the bike rode past with no probs and hollie still down which took a week to perfect ..and coz she didnt move when the bike came past she got her ball as a reward..she got so good at the down and stay that she could be way in front and i could shout the command if i saw a bike coming past me and she would down and stay till it went past then run back to me for her ball..so practice the down command first(mayb at home or in a quiet corner of your local park..which i did)and when youve got that then practice the stay with something she is keen on like a toy or biscuit which she can have if she stays put when u walk away,then when you have both those in place ask a friend to help you out by riding past and put both commands to the test xxxxReferences :
