Great! Now the bark method is available to use on the spike object. We can do this by calling the method on spike.

Here is an example of calling a method on an object using the Car class:

class Car { int modelYear; public Car(int year) { modelYear = year; } public void startEngine() { System.out.println("Vroom!"); } public static void main(String[] args){ Car myFastCar = new Car(2007); myFastCar.startEngine(); }

In the example above, we call the startEngine method on the myFastCar object. Again, this occurs inside of the main method. Running the program results in printing Vroom! to the console.



Inside of the main method of the Dog class, call the bark method on the spike object.
