DOGBIKER

Safe and controlled cycling with your dog.

Dogbiker is our latest product. With the Dogbiker, cycling with your dog has never been easier or safer. The Dogbiker is designed so that if your dog makes a sudden movement while attached to your bicycle, the combination of the low attachment point and the Dogbiker's spring, means that you only need to make small corrective movements.

Fitting the Dogbiker to your bike

Fitting the Dogbiker to your bicycle is simple. It is fitted to the rear wheel axle nut, as in the picture. Full instructions are included in the package.

   

Looking after your dog

Your dog is attached by a lead from its collar to the Dogbiker. The lead is supplied in a length that can be shortened as required.However, if the lead is cut, the end should be heated and re-tied to prevent fraying. It is important to make the lead short enough to prevent your dog's forepaws from getting caught under the front wheel.
To keep your dog at a suitable distance and to prevent the dog from changing sides, the second lead is attached from the dog's collar to the head tube of the bicycle. Please remember to check and tighten the knots before cycling!
Due to their good balance and control, two Dogbikers can be fitted to the bike. This makes it possible to ride with two dogs and have double the enjoyment!

Some general points about cycling with a dog

Exercise is necessary for the dog's development. Cycling with a puppy can begin when they are about six months old. However, a few basic points should be kept in mind.
At first, your trips should not be too long - no more than 2 kilometres to begin with. Little by little the length of the trips can be increased to around 6 kilometres, which is a sufficient distance to maintain your dog's basic fitness. As with people in training, your dog needs a free day, so 4 - 5 trips per week should be sufficient. While cycling, it is also important to let your dog determine the pace.
