Every dog requires exercise to keep it healthy and fit. However, the type of exercise you give to you dog depends on the breed, age and the required level of fitness. The good news for all busy people is that you get attachments for biking with dog and we know that all dogs love to go for a walk or run with their masters.
Attachments for biking with dog have done away the danger of holding the leash while you ride your bicycle. If you are one of those who tend to hold the leash while riding a bicycle, you should know that it is not just dangerous for the dog but also for you.
Attachments for biking with dog come in two basic types. The first type is a bracket that you attach to your cycle frame. This attachment then connects to a short leash or harness which is, in turn, attached to your dog. The attachment can be fixed on practically any part of the cycle frame depending on the type you purchase. The second type of attachment for biking with dog is a basket that you can attach to the handle bars of the bicycle. This type of attachment is especially meant for those small dogs that cannot trot alongside the bike. Instead, they are put into the basket and they enjoy the breeze through their fur while you do all the hard work! However, the basket-type attachment will not give your dog any exercise, if that is what you are looking for.
When using the frame-type of attachment, make sure you introduce your dog gradually to it. Get your dog used to leash or harness and running alongside you with you ride may take a couple of days. However, the effort spent would be worthwhile. In addition, you should further improve the safety by attaching mirrors to your bike so that you can keep an eye on your dog without having to turn your head frequently.
