If you are a pet lover, you will love the company of your dog everywhere and will tend to involve him in everything you do. The fitness of your dog is important. Your dog not only needs a regular walk but also needs an occasional increment in his aerobic exercise for his good health. However, this is often negated as everyone does not enjoy physical activity such as a morning run. You may have encountered the joggers running alongside their dogs, but cycling with your dog is entirely different.  

Riding a bicycle with your dog maps either one. It is either your dog riding in a basket or your dog running alongside your bike. For pups or those with health issues, it’s preferable to use a bike basket. Riding a bike becomes a feasible form of exercise for both, if it is not that strenuous for your little one.

Leashing is important for wild dogs because of traffic and their sudden mood swings. Leashes like Bike Tow Leash and Walky Dog Plus protect your dog from pedals and traffic. To reduce the significant force of an unexpected tug, coiled springs can be used as they act as shock absorbers. If your dog is running by your side while you are biking, bike slowly lest you develop an understanding of your pet. Doing a health check with a veterinarian first to ensure whether your dog can cope with such strenuous exercise will help you to stay tension-free.

  A few steps to be kept in mind while cycling with your pet;  

  •   Easy start

  If it’s your first time riding alongside your dog, it’s recommended to take it steady.  This enjoyable experience is about dwelling up a friendship with your new partner. Your dog is  to likely get used to running next to you and vice versa. Building up your speed over time will curtail accidents and help make the whole experience much more enjoyable.   

  •   Ride at a speed that your dog can maintain  

  Your little friend is not possessing any supernatural power. A slow pace is all that’s needed throughout the whole ride.

  •   Keep water handy   

Going out for a brisk task makes your tail-wagger thirsty enough. So taking a short water break to quench the thirst is a must.  

  • Take safety precautions  

 If you pop on your helmet, it will prevent you from succumbing to major mishaps.  Staying safe is necessary to enjoy your life with your new friend. 

  •    Dodge uneven surface  

Clinging to flat grounds and avoiding mountain terrains or pebble land will reduce the risk of your ride. It is primarily for your little friend you are riding and not for your own well-being. 

 Following them will not only keep your dog healthy, but will also prevent him from getting bored which indeed leads to depression.
