    here is my pooch. he is a lurcher, he is about 3, and i got him from Kennel in january after he was found wandering the streets without a collar or chip. he is chipped now. last weekend I rode the mountain bike for the fisrt time since breaking my leg last year (Not been confident enough to, only been doing some easy road miles). I took Jasper with me, and he loved it.....i think he was surprised I was doing more than 3mph .

    Some times I think greyhound and something smaller, other times Whippet with summet bigger . I don't know....I do know he is quick (30mph according my gps not long after i first got him off the lead .....strapped to his harness....i might test him again soon lol as he was pretty thin when i got him). he is chunkier and bigger than a whippet, but smaller than a greyhound.

    he loves to run...fast. which can be a little disconcerting to oether dog owners sometimes....he says hello at half speed, which is quicker than they are used to. I completey trust him now, and most of the ppl I meet are regulars....i think it would be unfair on him to not let him run.

    He is ace

    He looks ripped. A family friend had 2 Pits he would take on 10-15 mile runs. They looked like Ahnald back in the day, Conan with fur, so intimidating to look at but were little babies.

    I used to take our Jack Russell riding.


    She loved it but she has a wicked Napoleon complex so I had to keep an eye out for other dogs and pick her up if we came across anyone else with a dog - she'll go after any dog, any size that tries to sniff her butt, which is frightening. We never had a problem, but I had to pay close attention. She figured out after a little while that she could hitch a ride instead of run when she got tired. When it got to the point where she was begging for a lift too often, I stopped bringing her.

    A guy I ride with sometimes has a dog named Kona that is the best trail dog I've ever seen. He stays out of your way 100%. He's also figured out how to cut corners on trails. I've passed him then five minutes later I come across him waiting up the trail for us. I rode with him the second time on a brand new trail, after only two passes he had figured out where to cut corners - smart dog. Kona's owner said it was weird the first time they rode the trail 'cause the dog followed the trail!

    You have to be careful about picking smaller dogs up. The big dog gets excited and will jump up to get at the little dog and can hurt you. Picking a little dog up is one of the worst things you can do, your better off to throat the aggressive dog and make it submit. In those situations you have to be the Alpha. Not preaching just have seen it first hand. I used to breed blue-tick coon-hounds my mom who the dogs knew well grabbed her Shi-tzu off the ground. These dogs that knew and heeled to her without a second thought, however they were so worked up they knocked my mom over to sniff the shi-tzu. They didn't want to hurt it just sniff it. Dogs are very excitable and just flat out don't behave when that happens. Your best bet is to control that kind of encounter by trying to keep your dog down and out of the "line of fire".
    That video hit me where it hurt like a headbutting midget!

    An unleashed dog in a national forest is illegal. Why should I not subject you to second hand cigar smoke, if you think it's ok to subject me to second hand dog?

    City forests, and state forests have their own sets of laws, as most national sanctioned forests are national parks, dogs would not be allowed. here in Maine the leash laws for most dogs are only in certain distances to residential areas, and it varies from town to town, city to city. Your argument is valid for national sanctioned forests but really kind of lame to try to generalize all private state, and city owned property into the law for national forests.

    Personally, I do not smoke, but I dont mind a quick wiff of a cigar as my dog and I blow past smokers on the uphill.

    I went out again this morning with Jasper, and took some (rather ropey) video. Don't watch it full screen, might make you feel ill with the shaking lol. I put my old gps on his harness, he got 25mph, I got 17mph lol....he didn't even open up fully.

    thankfully I am allowed to let him off the lead here!

    and sorry about the squeeky back brake . Its not very good, but was fun to do.

    Sasha is a 5 year old collie/blue heeler mix (we think...she was an SPCA rescue). She had to have knee surgery when she was a year old, although it hasn't slowed her down one bit!

    Our national forest dog laws are posted as "under verbal control". Leashes only required within 100 feet of the trailhead. I've noticed there's always someone hating the sight of a loose dog when it's posted on this site....

    This is Donner



    Incredible trail dog, started working with him @ 8 months on short rides, he is now one of the more aware dogs on the trail and will not get in your way. Only thing that gets him is heat, he's a Shepard/Lab @ 90lbs and does not do so well over 80 degree's. Oh yeah, he hucked the rock in this shot. Such a rad dog!!!

    Boy you're a nasty little troll aren't you?

    Hey genius, there's a difference between a National Park and a National Forest. I don't know of a single National Forrst in Washington, Idaho or Oregon that has a leash law, and in fact I hunt upland birds, ducks and geese in several different National Forests with my dogs (off leash!) every winter.

    Sounds like you had a single bad experience with an asshat dog owner that gave you this attitude. See how all it ever takes is one bad experience to create a stigma for everybody else?

    Personally, leash laws don't bother me at all. With both of my golden retrievers (15 and 2 years old), I'll put the leash on them, then they'll pick up the end of the leash with their teeth and proudly walk themselves, right by my side. I've had park rangers laugh and smile as I went running by. In the last 15 years with my old goldie in every state I've lived in, I've never had anybody mention a leash law to me because my dog is always right at heel (until I release her to track birds or run and play in an off leash area).

    Not really a true statement for the Western US. There are of course National Parks within national forrests, but these usually have clearly deliniated boundaries, or at least you can tell when the land goes from cared for / improved to wild. In Washington, the national forrests are HUGE. In Wasington alone there is the Gifford Pinchot (where I grew up), the Okanogan, the Colville, the Olympic, the Wenatchee, Snoqualmie and Mt. Baker, each of these encompasses thousands of square miles.

    Now there are national parks within some of those national forrests of course, for instance Mt. Rainier NP is in the Snoqualmie national forest.
    See this little map here: http://www.wildernet.com/pages/area....F%26NP&CU_ID=1

    Also, its been my experience that park rangers can be very selective about enforcing leash laws. It depends on the situation, (and I hate to say it but the type of dog too). In fact, I can only remember being nicely asked (not cautioned, warning, or cited) to hold my dog's leash by a ranger at Rainier. But that was at a visitor's center and there were lots of people about.

    Law Enforcement Officers in metro areas are the same way. I never put my dog on a leash, but I carry it, (or she carries it in her mouth) and she walks and runs right at my heel, and right next to me or just right behind me on my bicycle. I've stopped and talked to Seattle police on my runs through the park and none of them ever even blinked, or they would laugh and ask if they could pet her. I've only had one LEO in Tacoma say anything to me about it, but that was because he was a K-9 unit and my dog was in heat.

    Good job!

    Here's a video of my HUSKY's passion to pull me everyday on my MTB:

    Hey Pro Edge

    What a good dog. Way to go running at daybreak to keep your doggie cool. I bet you don't have to think much about trimming your doggie's toenails. I run my dogs on pavement for short runs occasionally to keep their toenails trimmed. I was wondering how you attach your line to the bike. I also noticed that you might want to add a bungee section to your line to add a little suspension and make it less jerky for the dog and the rider. Here is a photo of my 1999 team on the Tahoe Rim Trail near Mt Rose Meadows. Notice where my dogs are attached to the stem. One puppy is running loose in the team. I like my line about ten feet to the first dog to give me more stopping time when the going gets fast.

    You guys are damn lucky to have dogs that can ride with you, much less, dogs that you can actually harness to your bike. I have two yellow labs; ages 3 and 1 1/2. I can hardly walk these dogs down the street as they pull with tremendous force and they are easily distracted. One dog will pull to the right to pee on a mailbox, and the other will start walking to the left to chase a cat or to sniff something out. I can't imagine what would happen if I tied them to a bike.

    Although I can't ride with them, they are my best friends.
