Biking with dogs?
I have 2 dogs and they both LOVE to go biking with me, its the only way I ever walk (run) them now! It is less tiring for me, but they still get to run and play! I use a long leash so they can run and play, but Ibunch it up in my hand when were by people or trafic, or they want to be close to me, so they dont trip on it. Bikes can go almost anywhere people and dogs can, and can go faster than I can run, for when the dogs wanna sprint. They used to knock me over for squirrels, but when they realized it hurt me, and made me sad, they don't. I reward them every time they see a squirrel or another dog and don't bolt (which is common). Each dog has heir own side of the bike so i can take them both at once and they won't argue, but they still distract each other, so I prefer to go one at a time. They can pull my dogsled though (but not often, I live in maryland). They can pull hard for labs, but I give them breaks.
anyway, I got off topic. What are your opinions on this? will you try it?
OH btw, they were scared at first, so I just brought them around the bike, and rode the bike in front of them so they could see it was okay, and I even included the bike as a jump in noodle's agility training! She HATED it at first, but now she could care less!
