There are countless dog friendly parks, trails, and plantations in Charleston. A bicycle built for two would give us the freedom to enjoy them while merging two of our favorite past times together – bike riding and dog walking!
Thanks to the Woof Cycle Bike Trotters we’ve got the next best thing and we’re on our way!…
The Woof Cycle Bike Trotter lets us safely take the Boys along on our bike rides.
I keep Jaxson with me #mybaby while Doodle Dad takes Harley. #oldguysbonding
AT FIRST –
I was skeptical about Jax getting in the way. I had visions of us on the side of the road, his head wedged between the wheel spokes #doodledown
But it really does keep him by my side and out of harms ways.
A design that takes into account both the laws of physics and dog behavior. The dog’s ability to pull to the side is greatly reduced and the tipping forces are virtually eliminated.
It’s imperative that you check with your vet FIRST especially if daily exercise isn’t in your dogs regiment. Your vet will want to evaluate your pup for heart and/or lung problems, as well as discuss a “low-impact exercise plan” should he/she suffer from inflamed joints or ligament issues…
We started with slow and short outings at first. #slothspeed
Now we’re trotting and riding for about 20 minutes at a time. We stop to enjoy the scenery and hydrate along the way.
This is relatively inexpensive ($43.00) and super easy to install. #Ididit
I do want to tell you we followed their helpful tips before using and found these three to be very beneficial –
- Be mindful of your pet’s capabilities when using the Trotter
- Attach Bike Trotter clip to your dogs collard walk the bike until your dog is comfortable with it
- Start slowly, practicing turns and stops in open areas
Both Boys seem to like it. Harley has a “wheel fettish” so he barks with excitement for the first twenty or thirty steps
We started them in the neighborhood –
Last week we kicked it up a notch and drove to Hampton Park #yespeoplestaredatus
By the end of spring (early summer) I hope to ride around the beach community – then park the bikes and splash in the warm salt water with them #baywatchdoodles
HERE’S THE BEST PART –
This is NOT a product review – I only wanted to share a fun way for you and your pup to get some exercise.
Make this the best weekend of your life – surprise someone with an act of kindness❤️
