Samie, I know you might have thought of this already but I just wanted to mention in case it hasn't come up. I forget how old Norman is, but I think he's still pretty young from what I remember. Therefore, while training him to run with the bike is great, I know it can be rough on growing joints so I know it is advised to limit that sort of activity at least until a year old. I think very short runs are fine, just so long as it's not too much repetitive movement on a hard surface. I have a walky dog as well and will probably start introducing Misha to it soon, though it'll be a while before he goes any distance with it.

Having used one before, I would probably only use with a back attachment rather than front. Because if they stop suddenly I would be worried the front attachment would make them start to turn into the bike pulling at an angle. At first they will want to stop for squirrels and other dogs and stuff, so you just go slow until they have learned that stopping isn't a good idea.

Raindrops, good ideas.

I looked at the bike attachment, as I also have one, a tadpole (one wheel in back). While the one is way too expensive for what it is, I know where the hardware store is and will look into making one myself.

Great thread!

Yes thank you for the reminder Raindrops! Very important to keep in mind. Norman is now 7 months old, and I still take extra care of how long we go on our walks. We go on our "long walk" Once a week on Sunday morning we walk down to the nature trails where he plays in the pond.

Thank you again for the kind reminder :-) I am going to keep our rides at a slower jogging pace for him, not going to push his body because I want him to live a wonderful life without any bone or joint issues, this would break my heart.

I will post photos once I put the walkydog parts on the trike! Its been raining for the past few days (we needed it) and so bike training was not an option lol!
