My Husky Loves to Bike Ride

Before the weather turns too cold we wanted to get out and do some bike riding with our Husky.  I used to ride with her just using her leash but it's difficult to prevent her from traversing in front of the bike or getting too close to the wheels.  Then I learned about bike leashes for dogs!

A bike leash for dogs makes bike riding with your dog much safer than a regular leash

This Summer I ordered a bike leash online and I love it!  It's easy to use and I feel confident that my dog is safe trotting next to the bike.  I don't have to worry, the bike leash keeps her in position.  Check out this 20 second video to see our bike leash in action:

We had a blast bike riding with her along the water.  It only took a short while to get her used to the leash but after that she loved every minute of it!  It's great exercise for all of us! Any activity that can tire out a high energy dog without tiring ME out as well is Pawsome in my book!

My dog's bike leash attaches on one end under the seat of the bike with a clamp, the other end attaches to my dog's harness. There are several brands of bike leashes out there, do your research and choose a safe one that fits the needs of your dog.  Use a harness, a padded one if you have it, don't attach it directly to your dog's collar. 

I couldn't find a bike leash in any pet store, bike shop, or big box store, I could only get it online so don't waste time hoofing it all over your city to find one.  Call a few stores to see if they carry bike leashes for dogs, but if not you'll need to look online.

Happy biking trails!!

Do you bike ride with your dog?  Have you ever used a bike leash?  Leave us a comment and tell us about it!

  3. That is really cool! I wonder if Hailey would like that (not that I have a bike, but I am always looking for things to get her the opportunity to run more). She may just want to smell the world!

  8. That's something I've never tried with Haley, but I think she would love it! She really wants to trot or at least walk faster than I do, lol.

  9. I think Ginger would love running beside a bike, I've just never been brave enough to try it with her!

  10. My hubby used to bike with our 2 previous dogs off leash where allowed (very few places). I saw 2 cool options at Global Pet Expo for leashes like this - our previous attempts were not safe so thanks for sharing.
