I ride a harley which is kinda noisy like all HD but im not a big fan of loud pipes. They are loud enough as they are but didnt sup them up. Anyway over a month ago Nyala's first time hearing the bike running, I let her stand outside the garage at first, I let the bike run for a good 30mins as hasn't run all winter. She was outside the garage door and kept going in a circle. I let her in the garage slowly petting her saying "its ok its ok" but she was pulling back and didn't like it. She still came up to it though. Took another 30 mins of introduction. She's was only 6 ish months old. I haven't started the bike again cause ive been busy starting my new business. From what ive seen, Nyala was ok at the end. But I will be honest with you, when I saw her getting to close to the pipes I got worried and realized she can get burned. Yes I know my responsibility to ensure that she doesn't.
You have to remember a few things, dirt bikes are more high pitch sound hard on any dog's ears, he's only 10 months old, bikes are new to him....well you get my drift. Start slowly let the bike run, put him on a leash, walk around the bike but far enough, walk in circle with BOTH dogs on leashes, take your time to walk like 20 mins. Get closer to the bike and keep telling your dogs its ok its ok or something that your dogs are use to hear from you that secures them. Dont rev your bike as yours is much harder on ears. Have someone hold both dogs and turn the bike of and then on a few times. Also you can sit on the ground beside the bike and play with your dogs around the bike. Do this for a few days. Im sure he will get use to the bike. Basically you are introducing your dog to a loud bike. I say both dogs cause it's good for your bully seeing your other dog calm around the bike.
