Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

So due to some nasty shin splints, I've had to give up running with my best girl for a while. We started bicycling instead and now I wanna turn bicycling into bike-joring. Gonna invest in a proper bikejorer starter kit and a new mountain bike.

Here's my problem: Unless my girl catches the smell of sheep in the hills, she couldn't even pull a car tire to save her life! When she's on a regular walk with mommy, we obviously don't want her to pull, so we've been training her specifically to not do that. When we got her she hadn't been on a leash for six years and she had never pulled anything. Now we've trained her by "planting" ourselves every time she pulled on a walk and after months of consistency, it finally paid off. She doesn't pull. And ironically that is now a "problem" when trying to bike...jor...?

How do I teach her to pull the bike instead of just running next to it? Anyone with experience?

All the best

i have read that you can have someone bike up in front of you and see if she will try to catch the person riding in front of you. i haven't tried it myself but cant wait to try.

That is how I'm going to try with Ami - have Wayne ride a bike in front of us. Ami hates being 2nd, always wants to be lead dog. We'll see.

Youtube is a pretty good resource for finding videos on how to teach your dog...well lots of things. When we started we started on a football field wearing a harness...and my middle son ran across the field yelling hike...while our first husky figured out that it meant run....went ahead and popped down a video that breaks it down into steps...it is on a sled rather than a bike.

Make sure your keeping an eye on temperatures, and your either wearing booties if your going on pavement or your sticking to softer surfaces that aren't so hard on the joints.
