Bikejor & Scooter

Once your dog if familiar with Canicross and all that it entails bikejoring could be the next step.

Bikejoring is where a harnessed dog or team of dogs, attached to a towline, pull and run ahead of a cyclist. A special attachment is used on the bike to stop the line getting caught.

It has all the benefits of canicross but the dogs get to do it at their speed and pace!

Dogs work harder in harness and use different muscles than when free running so the immediate benefits are a tired dog, both mentally and physically, this of course depends on the dog – some dogs “bounce back” very quickly!

A longer-term benefit is improved muscle tone, this is especially good for improving movement on show dogs or keeping agility dogs fit during the winter.

Regular biking or running should also create a calmer happier dog.
