Biking or scootering with your dog actively engages both of you in a fun sport. You train your dog to run out in front of the bike, wearing a special type of harness, while the dog is keeping a tight line and helping pull the bike along. Most dogs relish this type of activity where they are allowed to pull and run. Pull training clinics are offered throughout the region, which will help you and your dog gain the basics for this sport, but are not really necessary to get started. What is important is having a dog that likes to run in harness. Otherwise, find a different sport for your dog.
