Frequently Asked Questions
With the right preparation and planning, you can set you and your dog up for a fun time biking together. Practice getting your dog comfortable around your bike, mind the hot weather knowing your dog is working extra hard while you bike, and we always recommend checking in with your vet. They can answer any questions you might have specific to your dog's health.
Biking is a much faster paced activity than walking, hiking, or running with your dog, so they may tire more quickly. Start with short durations and work your way. up. Take plenty of breaks, pack more water than normal, and keep an eye on your dog. Better to call it short and have a little extra left in the tank for the next adventure.
When a dog and human bike on-leash together with the dog running out front pulling, that's called bikejoring. Check out the Omnijore™ System if you're interested in trying this with your dog.
A leash with some stretch and some length gives you and your dog a dynamic connection with some control and leaves room for your dog to run without getting too close to the bike. We recommend connecting to a dog harness rather than a collar when bikejoring. Check out our Roamer™ Leash and harnesses, or our complete Omnijore™ System.
