Used to run 7 mile 3 times a week with a terrier and lurcher on the roads so the dogs where always on a lead, one night a cat ran down the street and the dogs decided to change from a leisurely jog to

out with electric bike and dog....it braw and she loves it  

I bike to work twice a week with mine. It's about 4 miles with a split of roads an tracks. He will trot to the side of the bike fine. The rest is daily walks and mooch out with other dogs so they can

Just build up slow. Mines not a fan I sense I think he just finds it monotonous though and lags behind

A mate of my had a big pitbull/staffy and thought it would be a good idea to run him next to his bike. He tied the lead to the handle bars instead of holding the lead was okay for a mile or so but as soon as the dog seen a cat or it turned flip the lad off his bike and drag the bike down the road a good few hundred yards with the lad running screaming behind it was a very amusing afternoon atb guys

I've tried the bike before and come off when the bull x went after a squirrel, do you think the wheaton is ok to jog 3 miles 3 times a week?

Nothing weird about that at, that's what wheatens are like and you should have known that before taking on such a breed.

Ive found mine lags a bit when hes by himself behind the van but if ive got my curs out with him hes right up behind the whole way he must like it more when hes with his mates. Edited by Blackdog92

Take mine long walks free running and treadmill mine looking good probably step it up on treadmill now they have started to cut

im doing the same how long on the mill are you giving them? I give my dog 2.5-3 miles and a hour walk in the morning and a walk at night do you think the 2.5 - 3 miles on the mill is enough or should I give him abit more?
