We gave you a sneak peek last week during our Wordless Wednesday post, and several of you left comments on the blog or facebook with correct guesses about our new upcoming series- Biking With Dogs.
Many of you are aware we live in Portland, Oregon- arguably the biking capital of the USA. My husband is a bike commuter, and we often bike around on the weekends as both transportation, and simply for enjoyment. Since moving to Portland, biking has become a huge part of our lives and now we are so excited to be able to go out biking with dogs! Formerly, both the boys would pout when they’d see us pull out our bikes, knowing they wouldn’t be included in the adventures. But now when we grab our bikes, we are greeted with barks & howls of celebration!
There are several ways for a PetParent to include their dogs with them during a bike outing; some of these methods involve the pet parents hauling the dogs, while other entail the dogs running alongside the bike- typically attached by leash in some fashion to the bike frame. We will be highlighting two different products that we have started to use, both of which require us to put in the physical work while the dogs enjoy the ride. At thirteen years old, Bear isn’t going to be keeping up with us on a bike- and he totally deserves to sit back and take in the view.

So now I’m curious- do you personally enjoy biking? Have you ever taken your dog out biking with you? If you have any questions about biking with dogs, we’d love to try address them in our upcoming posts- so please leave them in the comments!
