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.

How did you all train your dogs to do it?! I tried it with Blitz - walking with him next to the bike and then a few days later hopped on, he totally pulled the crap out of me sideways, or ran into the bike. I don't know how to get him to understand to just run either in front of or beside me. Any training tips?

Do you have a bike attachment? Like the walky dog or springer? Without the walky dog I could NOT bike with either of these 2.

Have you tried just running with him without the bike first to see how he is in a run vs. just walking?
After I knew Frankie was ok running with me (because when he runs freely he's a maniac), then I introduced the bike.
Just like you... we walked next to the bike first, then I stradled the bike and walked that way, then slowly started to peddle very very slowly all in one session. I did this for 3-4 days in a row and once he got it, we just took off. After I knew he could do it, I ordered the walky dog bike leash and we LOVE it

We do not have an attachment yet. I want to get one but don't know when I'll be able to. I've ran with him every once in a while, I can't run to save my life though so he gets bored with me lol

Maybe I just need to walk with him more to get him used to it and then see how it goes with just a long leash.
