Pedaling with Pets April 11, 2010

Posted by nrhatch in Exercise & Fitness, Health & Wellness.

If you love biking, and you have a dog that needs to be walked, but you don’t want your dog to get tangled up in the tires of your bike, read on . . .

My brother-in-law is an engineer and an inventor.  One of his inventions: a bike tow leash for dogs.

Designed to prevent tipping and tangling and mangling of limbs (both yours and your pets), his bike tow leash allows you to exercise your pets at faster speeds than using your own foot power.

Instead of taking your dog for a walk . . . take your dog with you when you go biking!

JUST REMEMBER . . . to take ample water for your dog to drink and not to pedal faster than your dog can comfortably travel. 

The experience should be FUN for you and your pet ~ if your dog is not able to keep up, then slow down.  And make sure to stop periodically, especially on warm days, to let them rest and drink some much needed water.

What a great idea. I watched a dog carry his leash in front of himself. He was a few feet in front of his human who was riding a bike. It made my day as both the dog and the man had huge smiles on their faces.

I love watching dogs bouncing along with their own leash in their mouth ~ “I can walk myself . . . thank you very much!” : )

It’s a great product for bikers with pets.

Great idea!
I hope he also reminds people to take water for their dogs and to not go faster than the dog is comfortable with. I’ve seen some pretty unpleasant scenes in that respect here in San Francisco … warm day, dog barely able to keep up, tongue hanging out, no water in sight…really irritating.
