    Here are a few pics.
    The first one is me and the missus taking him skiing.
    Second and third are when he is hanging with his girlfriend. My parents rescued her from a puppy mill. She had many litters but no more. She is such a sweety.
    The fourth picture was the day we brought him home with stops at a mountain bike race (he learned to drink from a camel back on Day 1) and then to a rugby game.
    The last three are when he is calm. We needed to act quickly to get those!
    We have brought him snow shoeing this year which he loved.
    Can you tell I love him!

    ... and if we just ... An update

    Thought I'd throw up an updated pic of my little guy now he's prob as grown as he'll get - right now around 25lbs. He really does enjoy getting out on the trails (mainly like double track behind my house) when ever I take him and he does pretty good for his size (or to me at least), not sure exactly how much further he could go (most I've done is about 3.5 miles), but I'm itching to take him on my fav real trail some time soon.

    Here he is resting ontop of the one tech rock crawl section on our regular ride.

    Ha yea man, I took that one w my cell phone so it's a little scary. I tried to have my sister photoshop out the crazy eye but it didn't turn out.

    Your rotty looks like it's from a German line with it's super dark rust and that block head. I took mine in 2 years ago after someone left her emaciated and eaten by horseflies on my alleyway fence; ironically, I was looking for a female rotty puppy at the time, so it was a well timed blessing.

    He is cute as could be. 25lbs is plenty big enough to take on MTB rides - he might still put on some muscle, too, depending on how much you exercise him.

    Yeah, he is a cute dog and full of muscle. Since I found him when he was around 2 months old I started taking him on walk/runs every day initially (now he goes out probably 5 days a week, 1 or 2 rides) and playing fetch every day with him, so he's absolutely just pure muscle and fast as hell. I'm hoping he might grow just a bit mnore, at least in the legs to make it a bit easier on him keeping up on the faster stuff AND also if he would stop stopping to smell stuff and then have to catch up I know, no chance in hell of that

    Allister the German Short Haired Pointer

    not yet a trail dog but hopefully he'll calm down around 2. right now the hyperactivity and energy can't seem to be focused. of course, there are tennis balls....
    we were going for a vizsla but found this dude. he was a rescue: some redneck had him tied up to a tree for the first 6 months of his life. therefore, we have some leash / restraint issues we're still working on.

    breed all about it. good way to learn about an amazing breed. if you don't have time for a high energy dog then don't even consider them.

    That's a sweet pair of collies you have there We had a beautiful pair as kids, they were absolutely the best with us Ours were almost all black with just white collars, one had a white paw, the other white blaze My little guy reminds a lot of a collie, he has their energy, looks (although he's sand coloured) and lovingness.

    That's a super pretty GSP you have. I love those dogs - our dog is a GSP mix (we think) - she certainly has the energy/stamina typical of the breed, along with the flecking and body type. My wife runs with her all the time, and even ran 30 miles with her once. We're gearing up for a 10 mile trail race in may. The winning time is usually around 70 minutes, so I'm going to have to do some speedwork between now and then, but I think the dog will be fine.

    Haley the Ridgeback in North Georgia last weekend (I was hiking). She's almost 9 months now, I plan to introduce her to very short rides soon. Then longer ones in the fall when she is about 16 months.

    What are the specs on your dogs? Weight, distance they can travel, speed they can run? Are they 100% Border Collie? I'm trying to guess what I can expect from my Aussie/Collie when she is all grown up. 7 months old here.

    With the weather here they can easily run for 12+miles. My rides take me a minimum of 15-20 miles, though not at full pelt.
    I always make sure they have water stops where my routes go. I keep an eye on their paws just in case, they are a lot faster than me. I met a baylif the other day that said that working farm dogs easily go for 50 miles.....
    Though we haven't got pedigree papers, we were offered a lot of money for the male when he was young and pre training.

    Thanks for the info. I've done a few small rides with mine, but I let her set the pace so we aren't going very fast. She is hard to read because she stops when I stop and always heads for shade whenever possible. She also doesn't seem to drink as much as other dogs I have ridden with.

    Wink

    I haven't a clue what breeds he has in, I found him at the side of the road one night when he was about 2-3 months old. I personally think he has in miniture collie (I know there's a proper name for them) and then maybe Corgie or some other small dog breed. Here's a pic taken Sunday on his first real trail run - he had an absolute blast between the small patches of mud and the ocean which the trail comes right down to in spots

    Oh and thanks for the compliment on his possible breed I think he's got some good stuff in him. FYI I'm 6'2" and that's a 29er bike to give you maybe some idea of his size from the photo.

    Hey CTD, that collie pup is growing fast, looks like a promising trail bud and Lev, OMG, your dog is Sooooooooooo beautiful Since first seeing one of those I have dearly wished for one, but sadly being a 1 Broom liver on an island where it's either hot or hotter I think would be very unkind for a dog of that nature, so for now I just dream and enjoy my little Buddy

    I envy everyone one of you as here in my part of Canada it's not allowed to have a dog without a leash in the trails and its a few hundred buck fine. The sad part is my dog love to go in the woods and run! Here’s a picture of Maggie my boxer mix and she as the passion but she just not allowed going!

    Beautiful dog, how much does he weigh? Do you give him summer haircuts, or does he handle the heat OK?

    She's growing fast, probably quicker than your little guy. I was hoping for a 35# dog and she's already 40# at 7 months.

    I'm sure you probably already know, but dalmatians were bred as 'carriage dogs', prized for their ability to run between the horses and the carriage, sometimes between the carriage wheels. One of the reasons why fire departments adopted them as their mascots, when fire engines were still horse drawn.

    Wilson and Max

    These are my boys Wilson and Max. They don't get to go biking very much. Bike season is a bit warm for them. In fact Max can't tolerate temps about 25F. very well. Wilson does O.K. to about 75F.

    This is Wilson. He is an Alaskan Husky/Timber Wolf X Chinook. He is my best backcountry splitboarding partner. So far this season he has over 400,000 vertical feet under his paws.
    He is a great biking dog but only early mornings on creekside trails. He can run faster than I can descend even on my DH bike. He did a 35 mi. ride at an average speed of 18mph. We have clocked him running in front of my truck on a dirt road at 35mph. Wish he could handle heat better.


    This is Max. His mother was an interior Alaskan Village Dog.
    He is happiest when it is about -20F. or colder. He gets to do a lot of skijoring. Poor guy doesn't do well in our light powder for splitboarding. So he doesn't get to go.
    The More People I Meet the More I Prefer Dogs!

I'm thinking Dogo Argentino too, but I don't know. Have a look. He's about 4 months old and 30 lbs. His paws are pretty big so it'll be interesting to see how large he gets!

    Shar-pei mix man, no pit there.

    I don't have any pictures of my little man on this computer, but I have a 6 month old Great Labroxxer...(Great Dane/Lab/Boxer) and I cannot wait till he is big enough to take on the trails. He's super obedient, smart as a fox, and handsome as the devil himself. Right now he's only 40lbs or so, and I can't wait till he grows into those paws so I can show him how daddy plays!

    BTW, Great looking dogs everyone, especially those Wiemrieners!

    Tucker-11 month old rescue. Hopefully, he can become a trail dog. I've been working with him walking offleash but, the other day he went into a pond after a goose. He u-turned when his feet were'nt touching bottom. So needless to say, I've got more work to put in with him before I feel comfortable taking him with me riding.

    Looks like a lab mix, so I'd think he'd love water and take to it naturally It's one thing that amazed me about my little guy, took him to the beach a couple weekeknds ago, headed towards the sea and he jumped right in and when he couldn't touch he just started paddling like he'd done it his entire life - I was so amazed as he'd never been in more than a puddle.

    I was getting ready to ride with my 2 dogs last week. I had the dogs out of the car and the bike upside down while I was putting on the front wheel and some chain lube. My boy Monk, who likes to mark everything, walked right over and hiked his leg on my front fork. I guess it's his bike now.

    Here is a few pictures of my golden named McKinley. Sadly due to leash laws in the area I can't take him on the trails but he loves going for rides on our property. When we bought him as a puppy the owners were taking horrible care of him, so we were really glad to give him a good home. Easily the best dog I have ever been around, he is really nice, and great with kids and other dogs.

    Thanks playpunk. Just saw your post.

    Skyler is kinda funny on the bike. When we're out riding with the group, he kinda just assumes the pack mentality and stays right behind my rear wheel. However, when it's just the two of us, he does try to herd me a little bit. It kind of wears off once we get into our rhythm, but it's annoying at the beginning of the ride. If anyone has any suggestions for correcting that, I'm open ears.

    Beautiful dog, how much does he weigh? Do you give him summer haircuts, or does he handle the heat OK?
    Skyler weighs about 50 lb. Probably won't get much bigger than that I would presume. This summer he will definitely be getting a full haircut. We didn't do it last summer, but he was still a little too young to be riding with me at that point. I'm not sure how he will handle the east coast heat. We moved from SLC to Philly last year. I don't plan to push him on the hot summer days. Not healthy

    I have only been on 4 rides with my Aussie Collie. I have found that if I run her into obstacles on the side of the trail, while telling her NO, she gives up herding quickly.

    I also got her a haircut last week, so she's a lot happier with the heat. She had a lot more stamina on Saturday's ride, although it was a cooler day.

    This is Nico, our American Eskimo, and Merlin, our Tibalier (tibetan spaniel/cavalier king charles spaniel),

    Merlin doesn't seem all that interested in the bike, it scares him a bit.

    Nico was rescued him from a shelter last summer. He loves the outdoors but needs some more training and socializing before I take him out off leash. According to the shelter, his previous owners kept him in a kennel almost 24 hours a day. He's come a long way since we brought him home, but he still needs some work.

    My old trail companion Rex, a Scottish Rough Collie that I rescued in 2001:



    And My Trail Dog In Training: Rocket. He's another rescue dog; a Greyhound/Black Lab cross so training has been a real challenge since he's half sight hound. It's not easy catching a dog who can run 35-40Km/h

    Joules...

    Here's Joules, a pitbull/heeler mix.. she's just over a year old, and I'm starting to train her on the trails, hopefully she'll be ready soon to run off leash next to the bike, she's doing good when I take her running so far.... She's usually off leash when 4x4'ing and stays right with us... little nervous about rattlers and coyotes though....

    Bailey

    I love this thread!
    I rescued Bailey when he was about 3 months old and he just hit 1 year this month.
    We were told he was a beagle/lab mix and I am 100% sure that he is indeed that.
    He's got his nose to the ground constantly on walks, but start running or biking with him and he's right on your heels.
    He loves to swim and be out on the trails. He likes to chase squirrels but once we get moving he could care less about them.
    Sorry but I have to post up my favorite pictures of him....and there are a lot.

    Pictures go in order of when they were taken...

    When we first got him



    Playing at the park





    At the pond




    In the snow



    And finally got him out on the trails with us




    Around here electronic training collars are considered to be leashes under the leash law. Some people think they are mean but I've used it on myself before and it is more or less like pressing one of those trick lighters. Surprises him more than anything. However, the collar also has a tone button that when I press it he knows to listen or he will get corrected. After "shocking" him a couple of times I have never had to do anything more than sound the tone and he instantly responds. He even gets more excited when I pull the e-collar out instead of his leash because he knows that he gets to "roam more freely"

    Those last pictures were from a 8 mile ride. He was slowing down on the last half mile or so and when we got to the car he just jumped right in and fell asleep. He has never had a problem keeping up except for one time when I hit a downhill on a wide open double track and he slowly started to fall behind, but just slowed down at the bottom and he caught right back up. He's only 32 pounds but man he can book it!

    Fantastic thread!

    We've got some pretty crowded trails and strict dog/leash rules around here, but I'd love to teach our little girl to trail run.

    Shes starting to get the Passion. Took Kenda out for her first bike rides this past weekend on some short little 2.5 mile loops and she loved it. She just took to it so naturally but I didn't want to push her to hard since she is only about 7 months.

    Here is Ozzy, just started training him on trail, been interesting so far, he loves to herd being a cattle dog and all so we are slowly learning that the front tire business needs to stop.


    I honestly think he would be okay with a 20 mile ride at good pace, he is fast and has more endurance than even our border collie did.

    Pinky is becoming a fine trail dog. I think I will have to get an electronic collar for the free range cattle that we will encounter but she is good around other trail users. But trying to get her to come back after spotting cattle, deer is a different story.

    I took my boy Reese out for our usual 9 miles last night. He was running slowly towards the end, but I just thought it was because of the heat. When we got home, he coud barely walk into the house. I took him to the vet and discovered that he had torn the pads on 3 of his paws. The vet says it takes 2-3 months to heal. So it looks like he will be doing some serious couch surfing for a while.

    I was always under the impression that you had to bring your own dog to the trail, but this guy here must live close to a section of singletrack (state land in Western NY) because he's always there (and happy to run along side any biker who happens to be passing through).

    My cousin has an American Staffordshire Terrier named moses. I've never seen another dog like him. We go out on 30 mile rides with him, and he goes full bore the whole way!! About 20 miles into one of the rides we went down a long fireroad descent, where my speedometer was reading 35mph...moses was running right next to me...I couldnt believe it!!!! Another time we were riding along the edge of a 40 foot cliff...moses jumped right off of it, into 6 inch deep water, and then tried to climb back up it!!!! he made it about 3/4 of the way up!!!
    On our last ride of last summer, we had moses with us, and we were riding along a cow pasteur, and moses took off...He wouldnt go after the bull head on due to its horns, so he tried to jump it from behind...bad idea because the bull kicked him sqare on top of his head. He was a little dazed for the rest of that ride, but fine once we got home.

    I love my dog and she loves biking. She was hit by a car this winter just before my wedding, but she is back on the trail and can hold 15mph forever, but I have clocked her at 20mph for the sprints.
