    yea probably a good point. we were goin kinda fast since the trails are so smooth. ill have to be careful with tat from now on. we just moved 2 blocks away from the closest trail so she will have lots of practice!

    That's sad, because I'm pretty sure your dog would enjoy it so much!! I heard GWP can be harder to train as well... My girlfriend and I really like wirehaired dogs, and we really wanted to get a GWP at first. But after talking to some breeders and owners, we realized it might be a little bit too much for us to handle.

    That's how we learned about the Korthals Griffons and fell in love with the breed. For us, it's the best of both worlds: the look we like, with an easier character and lower energy.

    Actually, she has been very easy to train. She is an incredibly smart dog (kind of obnoxiously so), and I don't say that lightly. We trained our Vizsla to ring a bell hung by the back door when he wants to go out (done before we got the GWP) and she picked it up on her own by watching him.

    She learned hand signals for sit, down, stay, come, and "high five" just by watching the other dog. She also figured out how to open doors on her own (as in bedroom, bathroom, etc. that are pulled shut and latched, and we do not have lever style handles), which we still can't figure out for the life of us . . .

    I do know that she would love to run the trails. She'd actually really like agility style obstacles for sure because she's always jumping up on to and over things. Maybe I'll try to find a more remote trail.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    We've done as much as 80 in the desert south west with our 1.5 year old pointer/border collie. Lots of water, mellower pace. The 9 year old /Shepherd Lab mix gets hot when it's over 50 :P

    This is Shiloh, the best dog evaaarrr! As an adult living on my own, I'd only had cats, but when Salem died I thought I was going to die too. Loved that cat so much. Anyway, a friend said I needed to get a dog and get out of the house, and specifically a heeler. She said they were the best dogs ever and I think she was right, at least for me.

    After several weeks of mulling the idea over I started looking on petfinder and kept going back to her pic. After several more weeks of wondering if I was ready for a dog and the responsibility, I called made arrangement to meet her. That was all it took and we've had such a good time together for the last year and a half. 43#'s of awesome! I think she needs a better bell for the trails though..and a little more practice with our commands.

    God, this is probably my favorite thread of all time. Kinda bummed though, since I have lost a lot of weight I ride quite a bit faster and longer than before so it is tough for my Irish Setter Bono to keep up like he used to. He still can go 10+ at a pretty good clip, but I need to take more breaks when I bring him.

    Makes it tough when ride time is so rare with an 11 month old son! I want to throw down every time I get out on the trail. Hopefully this summer I will be able to get more long but slow rides in, ya know, stop and smell the roses type rides and take lots of pics with Bono-Tron

    Keep sharing your awesome trail dogs!

    I'm fortunate, with the cool weather, I've been able to leave my dog in my truck, go do 12-16 miles fast pace, then return and take her out for a more leisurely ride of 3 to 4 miles. It gives me a chance to cool down as well. Granted, Iím on private secure land (military installation) so chances of anyone bothering my truck is rare. Hope you figure it out. Also, the one time in my life that I did very little riding was when my kids were pre-toddlers. Thatís just life.

    My friend and I got verbally assaulted after leaving his chubby lab in the car (in the shade, with water, with all the windows cracked quite a bit, and low temps) to rest while we did another quick lap. Some people...

    I have been lucky to be able to ride as much as I have. My wife is pretty awesome (and she knows how fun I am to be around when I don't ride lol). Can't wait to take the whole family out for rides in a few years!!

    Here's another one of my favorite riding buddy, this one is in deer park northern NJ, after this I busted my hub and had to walk back to the jeep. Luckily a lot of it was down hill and Fozzy Bear was never more then a few feet from me. When I checked my computer I hit 21mph!! Damn my dog can run fast. It was only real short but damn!!

    Save up and don't go the cheap route. Bargains can be had, but the breeders of those bargain dogs aren't doing genetic testing (hips, eyes, elbows, thyroid) that should be part of any responsible breeding program meant to increase the health of the dog/breed. Vet visits in your first couple years will likely exceed 1k anyway, and usually the cheaper the dog, the higher risk for health problems there are (in general).
    Also, don't go through a pet store.
    You should be able to find a pet quality (not show quality, but from a breeder that shows, does agility, tracking, or therapy work etc.) dog for under, or around 1k anyway. 1.5k seems like a really high price. The puppy I posted in the previous post had littermates that sold for under 1.5k and his mom won the Akita breed at Westminster in 2011, so it was a very strong breeding.

    Good job!

    Here is my year old ridgeback on her first real trail ride about a month ago!

    We started her slow with 1k rides around the neighbourhood but now she is ripping beside me for up to 10k so far.

    Irie getting her game face on ready to rip it with me down the 401 Trail last summer. Coonhounds make great trail dogs if anyone wanted to know.

    I appreciate that some people really love pure-bred dogs... but please guys don't forget the poor pups available via rescue and animal shelters. My now 10 year old Black Lab buddy has been a wonderful companion, and it would have been a true loss to have her gassed.

    I fully support rescuing dogs as well! Thanks for bringing that up. I just really don't like people buying bargain dogs from petfinder.com with "papers," because the breeders are people who lack knowledge and are not taking steps to improve the health of the dogs. If you're purchasing a puppy from a breeder they breeder should also supply OFA certification numbers.

    Baxter the Brussels Griffon on his first trail ride. A little over a mile with a short creek swim in the middle. He got distracted a few times but is a good listener. We'll have to go again sometime.

    I got this one though I haven't biked with her yet but she knows what my running clothes/shoes look like and will go bonkers over them...she also understands what it means if my son says he wants to ride his bike around the block and lose it.

    Big and + a million on this.

    I've never had a pure bred anything and probably never will. Way too many shelter and rescue dogs out there most of them mutts in need of a loving home.

    never had a pure bred before my doberman that I got as a hand-me-down. I think the thing people need to remember is that a pure bred dog is bred for a job, and if you don't give them that, you will run into problems.

    I found a puppy on a road ride last December, got her to follow me almost all the way home before we caught a ride. Now she runs with me almost every time on the trails! She goes nuts when I put my bike shoes on. Can't post pics yet, but she's 11lbs, has long, amber-brown hair, almost a year old now, and is a mix of several breeds. She'll keep up fine for 7-8 miles (my after school route).

She'll keep up fine for 7-8 miles (my after school route).
    Good on you! Always great to hear stories like this.

    Glad to see someone else thinking like I do, wish they'd really crack down on breeding with the amount of unwanted and discarded dogs and pets we have the world over. I love my 3 rescues, absolutely can't beat them and they're hardy as hell, love the trails, although a bit too small to do any serious mileage.

    Good on you, I think you'll find you have made yourself the most true and loyal companion you ever can in rescuing that pup, post up pics when you're allowed

    Nice pups LyNx!

    I feel like you should update your signature though. Should read like this: Work to live, live to ride, ride to work.

    possible but she seems a little short and thicker then most i have seen and in missouri thats not to many. I'm thinking more along the lines of cattle dog crossed with something thats brindle I got her at a year old from a guy that found her as a half dead pup. Great girl if not a little spoiled thats her very own couch she is on lol

    I'v got some more pics of her somewhere with her pups (accidental breeding my 10mo old lab/american bulldog destroyed his kennel to get to her when she was in heat) if i find them i can post them up for a better look at her I know her pups all came out looking pretty bully with the exception of a few that had long curly hair with brindle paws they were actually pretty damn cute.

    You wish "they" would crack down on breeding? And by they, I suppose you mean government people... Is there anything left that Americans don't want their government to provide some horrible answer to?

    Please don't make that a generalization - I'm an american who most certainly *doesn't* want more meddling.

    I'm hoping "They" referred to AKC and other animal breeding and eugenics groups.
