Default Bike Attachment Ideas

So I made another thread about this but it will not let me add a new comment so I apologize for the whole new thread.

Last night I put my new tricycle together and long story short, the "WalkyDog" attachment I bought was too short. Norman is hitting the back wheel when it is attached to the bikes side. Didn't occur to me that it wouldn't work on the trike lol!!!

I have looked everywhere online and I am unable to find an attachment where he can ride beside me. I also cannot have him being pulled behind me on the back leashes/leads. This is not for us I would like him beside me if at all possible to monitor him

There is a product called "Bike Tow Leash" that could hook on the side of the tire (without getting caught in it) but for trikes is $216.00!!! (link below)
https://biketowleash.com/products/th...21009007280192

I would love to buy this but like many people, my money does not grow on trees, though I wish it did!! I could eventually save for this yes, but this would be a hard buy for me if I can find a great alternative.

Does anyone have an ideas or tips? Something like the link I sent? Wondering if I can create this myself... if any of you are crafty please let me know if its possible!!!

Any all ideas are welcomed thank you!!!

**I can add photos of trike if needed**

Have you tried the Walky Dog Low Rider Bike Attachment Leash Accessory? There is a review on Amazon that mentions it works on their trike.

This is very expensive for what it is !

I’ve used this model for many years with an extremely high energy dog and it was just perfect. I would buy it again anytime. I was using it on a bike though, but check it out, maybe it will fit your tricycle. You can also write to the company if you want to make sure. It’s a really good product and it turns into a leash too, very practical.

Did you look at this one? I might have posted it on an earlier thread.

Zesti: So I did see that but I was worried Norman might be too tall for this?? Great idea. I will measure his height with the bike on this one.

Dechi: I agree, so expensive! But this is the attachment I have. With the attachment Zesti mentioned, it may just work for us if the height matches up! Didn't even know they made an extra wheel attachment. Wondering if this will be tall enough though!!

Scooter: I am not sure how much this would stick out. I need something that is far enough to where Norman doesn't hit the wheels. I think the seat sits pretty close back to where this may not work )-:


Overall I think I will give the added low rider accessory a try and see if that works for us!! :-) Thank you all! I will let you know if this works.

Good luck! Hope it works for you. I'd love to be able to bike with Jessie, but I'm too afraid of running her over so she's stuck in her bike basket for now.

I will say I did try the Bike Tow Leash and it seemed excellent- for a bigger dog- and I'm sure it would last a long time. If the Walky low rider attachment doesn't work out, it might be worth saving up for. It seemed very strong, so a lightly used one from Letgo/eBay or Amazon Warehouse to save some money could still be a safe option.

I have a walky dog attachment, will no longer use it as I just gave my bike away. I will send it to anybody who wants it.

Zesti: Thank you! And I wish Norman was small enough some days to where he could fit in a basket!! Too cute. But For now I think if hes good with this bike, he will love his walks/jogs. Now I can keep up!!

Reraven: Wow that is so kind of you!! Will this fit with the attachment??

If it does, I will take it off your hands!!! :-)

I'm pretty sure it would. It's a replacement part for the piece that attaches under the bike seat, so would have to have the same attachment. PM me with your address if you want me to send it.
