The water bottle squirt trick didn't phase him... ignoring him didn't work...stopping just made him more aggressive... finally whacking him is the arse using my pump like a polo mallet did the trick! yipe-yipe-yipe!

Smart dog though... riding past him in the future, all I had to do was motion like I was going to reach for my pump and he'd give up the chase, head for home, tail between his legs.

I'm an animal lover through and through, but I swear it was me or him
