    Shred is a 4 year/old Border Collie/Heeler mix. Picked him up at the pound. I know everyone says this about their dogs, but he really is the greatest dog ever.

    Wicked! Thank you for posting. Those videos are excellent. We have a Border Collie that loves the trails. They make it look easy. Awesome looking trails & riding.

    I'll probably take her with the bike pretty soon, at an offpeak time just as a training run.


    could be a kelpie or kelpie mix. i posted a pic of mine on page 25. great trail buddy!

    Mine doesn't get to ride with me so she doesn't like bikes. She is a great dog and I never thought she would ever bite anyone. Until I rode past her a couple weeks ago and she snapped at me. That was the only tie she has ever did anything like that. I'm guessing she's jealous of the bike

    might just be afraid of the bike. its a strange contraption to an animal! my dog however LOVES bikes. if i'm out hiking, and she see's a biker, she'll sometimes leave me and follow the biker. It could be Hitler on a bike, and she'd still become their best friend because they're mountain biking!!!

    a little word of caution, an this is not to deter anyone from riding with their dog, but a friend of mine recently was riding with his dog (like he does every day), and the dog stopped on the side of the trail to check out a snake. the snake must have moved and the dog suddenly lurched backwards. Her tail in a freak accident, went right into my friend's brake rotor, and it was CHOPPED OFF like a saw! She had to get a good portion of her tail amputated after that. now she has a handsome half-tail. Just a little heart warming story for ya'll.

    That's horrible. But now she will be picking up many more males with her awesome stub cause dogs dig dogs with stubs.

    i think mine must be a mix, because most of the pure Kelpies Ive seen have really pointy ears that stand straight up, and my dog's ears are almost always flopped down and not all that pointy. Shes my first dog ever and I must say, she's a lot easier than I expected. Super smart and really obedient.

    I took her out on the bike the other day at Walnut Creek in Austin. We did probably 5-6 miles and took a lot of breaks. She absolutely loved it and did really well. She followed me everywhere I went and if we came upon other dogs, she would play with them until I went down the trail a bit and then she would sprint to catch up. I think she'll be a great trail dog, but I will probably only take her on shorter, less technical rides

    1/2 border collie, 1/2 jack russell...smarts and disposition of the border collie, energy of the jack russell...couldn't ask for anything more...he's my best friend!

    No riding shots though...always forget the camera...

    I just lost my best bud last night... Atticus.
    I adopted him from the Animal Rescue... His former owners beat and abused him and didn't take care of him.
    He was the best, most even tempered dog... Always ready to do whatever you asked him.
    A month ago he was diagnosed with spleen cancer and had spread to most of his other organs...

    I'm glad I could give him happiness in the last years of his life!





    I'll miss you buddy...

    Thank you all for your kind words...

    I'm going to be checking the local Animal Rescues for another Boxer...
    I have a younger Boxer that is a bit lost without another dog in the house.

    I'll post up some pics when I find another one...

    Here are a few of Daisy... Another adopted abuse dog.

    I really do apologize if this has been posted before. But then again re-posting this video is so worth it. The best part is at 1:54. I watch this video all the time and it never gets old, I always chuckle when it gets to 1:54. Not my dog BTW.

    Here is Stan on Horse Thief Bench in Fruita. Love riding with this dog, he heels on command, ignores cattle when told and works well with others. I try to regulate my pace to keep Stan fresh and injury free. His pads hold up pretty well on sandstone but I try to avoid rocky terrain when riding with my buddy.

    This dog was born for single track.

    I am an all out dog person, hand down. i love my dog and most others...
    but if i come across you on the trail and you dog is all over the place and out of control it will cost you $106.00. If you dog is well trained and actually listens to you, a verbal warning for it being off leash will do. I'm tired of lazy people who refuse to take responsibility/properly train their animals. it has cost me too much time, work and heartache in the past. ie; responding to injured hikers/bikers/horseback riders, broken bones, nuisance dogs, dog bites, dogs chasing wildlife, etc. leash your dog if it's the rule...if you refuse, buy property big enough to do whatever you want and take the liability if your dog is out of control.
    just be responsible and accountable for your animal. thats all i ask

    my chiropractor sprained his wrist when he crashed while he was chased by a pitball on the trails.... (since he works with his hands... it's a big deal)

    I almost crashed avoiding an unleashed dog on the trails...

    I would love to bring my dog out when I go riding, but the reasons above is why I don't in our litigation happy society

    here goes the rants about join dates, rep, post count, blah blah blah...Get over yourself. That has nothing to do with a persons knowledge or skill level, nor thier "passion" ( for dogs or biking ).

    Im just stating facts about something I have to deal with on the regular...irresponsible people. I can see both sides of the fence. I would love to be able to ride with my dog off leash but short of riding in circles at the local off leash park, or I hit the mega millions and buy a huge piece of property, it wont happen around here.

    Internet forums are here to share facts and opinions...just sharing mine...thanks for your input, Bra!

    I have two shorthairs.. I don't take them on trails while riding..my choice.. but I bike 3 to4 thousand mi per year and those dogs off leash look happy to be alive. Leashes just take all the responsibility of training out of the owners hands. Dogs NEED to seek for their mental health. The real hazard on the trail are F@#$%& I-pods..

    Go easy on him until he is over a year old and you'll have a healthy running companion for many years.

    Thanks! I've heard cattle dogs don't do well with things that go in circles...like my wheels. Hope he likes the trails.

    but if i come across you on the trail and you dog is all over the place and out of control it will cost you $106.00. If you dog is well trained and actually listens to you, a verbal warning for it being off leash will do. I'm tired of lazy people who refuse to take responsibility/properly train their animals. it has cost me too much time, work and heartache in the past. ie; responding to injured hikers/bikers/horseback riders, broken bones, nuisance dogs, dog bites, dogs chasing wildlife, etc. leash your dog if it's the rule...if you refuse, buy property big enough to do whatever you want and take the liability if your dog is out of control.
    just be responsible and accountable for your animal. thats all i ask

    Im sure you know this but extremely careful with choclate around your dogs. It contains a chemical that is a cardiac stimulant and diuretic. It could just make the dog extremely thirsty and have an upset stomach but since canine livers dont process choclate, it will build up in the liver over time. Heart attacks due to hightened heart rates are the most common choclate related death cause.

    Amelia

    hoping to take my girl Amelia out this spring. she is three, loves jumping into the Boise River and swimming around. I am sure she would make a great trail dog, boundless energy, strong, and agile.

    It is a full breed Corgi cardigan, but she has got a bit of long legs on her - if you can call it "long legs" on a dog like that

    Corgi's rock!

    I've got a 6 year old pembroke, haven't tried riding with her, she listens very well but I guess I assumed her legs were a bit short for long trail rides, but she keeps up with us on 10 mile hikes with no issues

    She injured her CCL when she was 3, being so young we had options and we opted out of surgery and kept her on light duty, no stairs, no jumping etc for a few months and she pulled thru despite the initial assumption she would "need" the surgery, she's been running around for 3 years now like nothing happened, I'm so happy for her

    Glad to hear she is doing fine..
    I have never had any problems on the trail, she has always kept up and never look like she couldn't cope - when the trail gets to technical, she always run ahead - there is no waiting for me

    On the bell collars. I do the same thing. That way I can always hear her when she lags behind or gets ahead of me. Also, I think it helps with the deer population around me, although unproven, since my dog won't chase them anyway.

    I've been doing it for years. It also lets other trail users be aware of the dogs. Also it's hard to be pissed off at a dog with a cute bell on it's collar.

    I love this thread. We were riding in preparation for the Fire Road Cedar City last year and met this pair motoring down the Kanarra Mountain climb. I met Jaren and his dog, Rami, who had started in Kanarraville and ridden to the top and back down...that's starting at 5500-feet, riding up to 9500-feet and back down for a total of about 20-miles. The dog looked absolutely STOKED and wasn't having any trouble keeping up with Jaren - even on the descent! Awesome.

    Does anyone have experience with larger dogs? I have a 95lbs german shepherd / rottweiler mix and want to train him to hit the trails with me. How do you carry enough water for a 4 hour ride? I'm in the desert so there's no natural water sources.

    That's a big dog for desert riding. I ride with two 45# to 50# dogs in high mountain desert. One is almost all black so I have to be careful of hot days. I carry 2 water bottles on my bike and a full 100 oz bladder. I have numerous trails to ride, so if it's hot out, I try to ride a trail with a known water source.

    Many years ago I had a 70# shepherd, malamute, wolf mix. He was not fixed and had to pee on everything, so he could easily drink me dry on a hot day. I had a rear rack on my bike in those days, so I often carried another 200 oz of water for the longer, dryer rides.

    Just having a mud puddle for the dogs to lay in can give them tremendous relief. It's like putting fresh batteries in them.

    On a final note, I would recommend lots of water for the big guy, and make the ride about the dog, not your own personal agenda. I've known several people that have run dogs to death, it's not what you want for your best friend.

    Sorry to hear, I had happen to my dog who was not a trail runner. Then, less than a year later the other went. My point is ...do not push the dog at all as they will want to get going fast anyway as dogs try not to show pain as humans do. Good luck, it is as bad for a dog as it is for humans to recover.

I'm tired of lazy people who refuse to take responsibility/properly train their animals. it has cost me too much time, work and heartache in the past. ie; responding to injured hikers/bikers/horseback riders, broken bones, nuisance dogs, dog bites, dogs chasing wildlife, etc. leash your dog if it's the rule...if you refuse, buy property big enough to do whatever you want and take the liability if your dog is out of control.
    just be responsible and accountable for your animal. thats all i ask
    I would rather leash all the people that cause same due to stupidity. They do much more damage and get 1% of the blame while people pound a dog for running wild. Dogs are meant to run, sure sometimes after deer and rabbits, how can you honestly think that is wrong ? I am tired of people also, people who find a little thing and try to make a moutain out of it. Sure accidents happen, just look at highway deaths with no dogs involved. You want to raise your flag and scream about an issue, go there and do something about that situation. People are the problem, not dogs and other wildlife. People do not own the wild. Stop trying to act like it, your on this earth for the blink of an eye, nature will forget you soon. Enjoy

    Here's another one of my bud. He loves to run while I ride, as soon as I touch my bike he goes nuts. I usually just take him to Golden Gate Park and we run around some trails there. He won't leave my side except to take a dump.

    I completely agree. I hate people that whinge about a dog on a trail as they blast around the corner. What if that was a fallen tree dumb ass. Your in the same position. Take responsibility for your own riding.


    On another note: Meet Luxie. We got her from the local pound. We think she is a lab/whippet/pointer cross, She loves running single track behind me 3-5 times a week.

    i agree that people are the problem...dogs are not to blame and i would LOVE to run/ride with mine off leash but there is no where around here to do that legally. Yes accidents happen everywhere, great observation... but im not quite sure how the highway has anything to do with this thread.... just be mindful that you are liable for what your pet does weather you like it or not and even if there is no leash law. Properly train your dog and dont ***** about the consequences when you get caught, thats all. I'm not making a big deal of anything, just enjoying all the great pics/vids of the beautiful pups and envying there is no where to ride with mine off leash here. nature will forget us all, it has for generations

    unreal story about biking with my dog, truly a crazy person i encountered.

    So I am on my new bike for a five mile ride along the neuse river last week around 4 pm. It's 55 degrees and just a nice day to ride. I am on the trails behind my house and Ruxin is running behind me as usual with no leash.

    I see a very old man walking a border collie about a half mile ahead. I call Ruxin to my bike and put him on the leash. So now Ruxin is running beside me while I am holding his leash. I pass this old man (probably in his 70's) and he stops me. Here is what went down:

    Old man: "Son, I would feel like a proper citizen if I didn't say something to you about this. What you are doing is the cruelest thing I have ever seen someone do to a dog. No dog should be running with you following you on a bike. He is going to do whatever it takes to keep up with you because you are his master. You are going to running his joints, muscles, hips, paws, arterties, etc. and you don't even know it."

    Keith: "Sir, I take him out a few times a week around 5 or 10 miles and let him swim in the river as well. He has all his shots and he loves it. My vet has no problem with that and loves that fact that I exercise him like this and I have full approval regarding this matter"

    Old man: "Son, if I had my cell phone with me, I would call the police right now and have that dog taken away from you"

    Keith: "Are you being serious? What year of vet school did you learn all this in?

    Old man: "No need to be a smart alec with me son, you should respect your elders and I am just trying to save this dog's life. This dog is not a wild animal and should only be walked and run around a back yard if he feels like it"

    Keith: "Your dog doesn't even have a rabies tag on it's collar. You want to use my cell phone right now and call the police, or I can just call them"

    Old man: "Son, you obviously know nothing about dogs and it is a shame what you are doing to this poor beautiful animal. He should be home at your house and only be walked no more than 30 minutes a day. I know more about dogs than anyone you know."

    Keith: "Again, what year of vet school did you learn this in?"

    Old man: "I've said my piece. Have a nice day and if I see you and your dog again I will call animal control and have your dog taken from you, I know the Game Warden personally and several police officers who would have no problem confiscating your dog and probably you bike also. Do you really want this on your record and have it effect your job? I have never seen such a cruel game where you have your animal follow you on a bike. I can't stress enough to you the damage you are doing to your poor dog. I feel sorry for him and hope you will educate yourself enough about taking proper care of an animal. If you have a vet that has told you this is ok, you need to find a new vet, because this is destroying your dogs body and you are too ignorant to realize this. You seem like a nice kid and I am just trying to educate you on this matter.

    Keith: "Sir, I am out here everyday and I hope you call the police. You want my cell phone number and address? We can call the cops now if you want?

    Old man: "You should respect your elders and take advice from someone who is more than double your age and has owned plenty of dogs. It's people like you that that make me sick. I wouldn't be surprised if you are training this dog to fight, I pray to the Lord that you are not doing that."

    Keith: "Sir, with all do respect, F you. Call the cops, the game warden, the mayor, the governor, whoever and get them out here, I beg you."

    Old man: "If I see you out here with him again, I will call animal control and the police and you will see how serious this can get."

    Keith: You promise? Hopefully you are a man of your word and will call them. I am out here everyday and I am sure we will see each other again, make sure to bring you cell phone next time. I also have youtube videos of him running with me which would further help you case with proof that I do this regularly.

    Old man: Don't let me see you again out here with this animal or I will do everything in my power to find him a proper home with an educated owner.

    Keith: I usually ride this exact path four or five times a week with Ruxin running behind me or by my side on his leash. Sometimes we go 10 miles then I let him fetch in the river for an hour or so if that make you feel even better?

    Old man: I am going to make some phone calls when I get home and report you.

    Keith: you got to do what you have to do, again F you.


    Can you believe that? I thought I was on a hidden camera show. You can't make stuff like this up. What the heck.

    I really shouldn't have said F u to him, but I was angry, so I apologize to anyone in this thread if that offends them.

    Wow that is a crazy story. I don't ride with my dog, and never would just because he is not that kind of a dog, but my wife runs with him on a leash 5+ miles/3 times a week.

    Can you imagine what would happen to this old mans heart if he ever heard of dog sled racing!!!!
