What is the benefit of biking my dog vs walking them?Biking vs Walking:

One of the most important things you can do for your dog to make sure they are happy, healthy, balanced, and non-destructive, is to ensure they get enough exercise. Dogís are not meant to lounge around the house all day sleeping. Even if they have a large backyard, most dogs will not use it to run around and get exercise on their own. This is why it is so important to take part in outdoor activities everyday with your dog. You owe it to them as their owner, even when there seems like there is no time. Most people will try to at least walk their dog/s daily, but for many breeds walking alone is not enough. Dogs like to run. The next best thing is jogging with your dog, but often times you become worn out long before your dog does; plus jogging at the speed your dog would like to run is often not an option.

This was the problem I was having with my dog Parker. He had a ton of energy, but my daily walks and jogs just werenít cutting it for him. And I didnít have the time to take him to an off-leash park everyday. That is when I came across the concept of dog biking. When done with the right equipment, biking your can be an excellent way for your dog to get the exercise they need and have fun doing it.

Here are a couple of advantages that biking your dog has over simply walking them:

  • Get energy out in a fraction of the time it would take walking your dog
  • Your dog gets to run in a controlled environment still safely secured to you
  • Better exercise for your dog leads to a healthier, happier, longer life
  • Your dog will be less destructive if they get the proper amount of exercise
  • It's a fun alternative to walking
