i started biking my dog, molee pie, a few weeks ago. and he took right to it. stays right by my bike and has no fear of the bike and can follow along fine. he can get too excited at times at the sight of other dogs like when we're walking. so this was an idea i had in order to keep us moving at a good clip and not give him a chance to really overreact. its helped alot and he just digs running alongside the bike. sure, at times he can still be a little too interested in passing dogs, but the momentum of the bike and all give him no real options but to continue going forward. my thought is with time and practice he can pull me across the US on a bike.
when we start out he's so excited he is galloping - running full throttle down 46th to guadalupe. people have stopped in their cars to watch us go by. we must be a sight. one girl said: 'you aren't even pedaling are you?'. nope. he's my sled dawg.
we get to the huge parking lot and slow down. we take 2 water breaks and just mull around the lots. he trots along and i'm slow Netherlands-style pedaling along. its great fun.
