Biking Your Dog

898 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  amber9
Who does it? My GSP is still not quite a year old, and has bounds of energy. Walking him does nothing, and I understand and accept that. He likes to run off leash at the soccer fields near my house. Anyways, I'm wondering if anyone bikes with their dogs? I know there are some products out there like the walkydog, and the springer, that seem to be beneficial for the dog's safety.

I haven't started biking with my GSP or anything. It simply occured to me as a good way to give him the exercise he wants and needs, but before I tried I wanted to know how to do it the safest way? Or should I not at all? Tips? Thanks!

You could always look into Bikejoring, my guess is that it would use even more energy than biking with your dog beside you. Do a quick google search, lots comes up. Training involved, but I don't know that it would be much more than what you'll have to do to be able to bike safely with your dog anyway. I know there are a couple of people on here that do it, or at least Skijoring/mushing/canicross (I'm planning on starting some training this spring actually). You might find it really fun!
