Default Mooooving forward?

A little bit of humour came to my often stressful walk today. My dog reacts to just about every living thing. So to get her used to the sound of cows as we go pass the field I've started talking to the cows and mooing with them. She loves the moo! It gets her so happy with her bum wiggling and ears relaxed that she instantly snaps out of her tense reaction. I tried it tonight when a dog started barking at her and had the same response! No barking back, hackles dropped instantly and complete focus on me! I might look and sound like an idiot but we had a lovely walk and she was incredibly relaxed. If I have to moo to get it...who cares!
