Scooter hell, hyperactive collie mix goes on the offensive

Hi everyone, looking for some advice. I have a 4 year old Collie/Aussie mix (male, neutered), who is absolutely the sweetest and calmest dog. He is very relaxed and calm 99% of the time, even when he is excited to go for a walk. However, this is where the problem lies. He absolutely loses his mind when there’s a human passing by on wheels, be it a skateboard, a scooter (like a bird or a file), or rollerblades. Bikes don’t seem to trigger this, only when people appear to be standing up and moving fast. When I say he loses his mind, I mean it. He has a crazy bark, he is VERY difficult to control physically (he is quite small, ~50lbs) and can be quite aggressive. While I never let him get away from me, he has nibbled at me quite often and he has even bitten my leg and hand before. Once he can no longer see/hear the scooter, he calms down and acts like nothing happened. I have tried a few things in terms of controlling the situation; he is in a harness or martingale collar depending on how far we are walking, I have a soft muzzle that I can put on as needed, and I keep a very close eye on people so I can get him out of the way as much as possible. possible. He is not motivated by food, so the distraction training has been very difficult, even to the point where he will drop any reward (usually cheese, his favorite of his) so that he can go crazy for it. scooter. I guess a lot of this is due to his collie heritage, where he sees a fast moving object and has to go herd it (I’m lucky he doesn’t react to bikes or cars like this), but he’s getting to the point where I’m worried that if I lose control, I might hurt someone. Has anyone come across this with his puppies? Trying to see what might be doable at home before bringing in a professional. Thank you!
