    Here is a picture of my sisters dog (left), my/my parents dog (right) and I. Hes only about 9 months old now so I haven't taken him out with the bike yet but they both loved hiking in the tetons this summer Can't wait to see how he does with the bike! We have mainly been working the off leash training before I take him biking. Hes been doing excellent so far. And yes he was shaved significantly shorter than that pic to keep him cool...

    Here's Heidi and Reba



    Heidi at 16 years, Reba at 18 months



    Reba at 18 months


    Reba loves water - at 2 years




    This one is one of my favorites


    But this one is good too.

    I really should start using my camera on rides. Reba is incredibly fast. And great on or off leash.

    Bo is a beautiful Setter, adhumston. Unfortunately lost my Setter/golden mix, Aspen, in January. I now have a 6 month old golden. He is a few posts up.

    Nice Aussie!

    One of my mutts is half Aussie and half Catahoula Leopard dog, which I had never heard of until I got him. He can run like the wind.

    This Photo was taken last winter at a skijoring race in Chester CA near Mt Lassen. The dogs are Seamus and Mojo. It is cool enough now in the evenings to run my little team.

    JoJo (German Shepherd) and Fletch (Lab)

    This picture was taken when JoJo was about 5 months old.

    They love to go on hikes (on a leash), but I don't think they are trained well enough to trust them to run free on a bike ride. They would be fine with people, but if they came across another dog, I'm afraid they might get too aggressive.

    I do love to go on group rides when someone brings along a proper trail dog. It adds another level of enjoyment to the ride for me.

    Smartest dog I have ever known. Eleven years old and still going strong. If you even hint at leaving the house, she goes bonkers. We even made a custom seat for her in the center console of the truck so she can lean into turns and not slide around.

    Here are the Pointer Sisters exploring a sand wash...

    in Anza Borrego SP. Not too many English Pointers in San Diego so we always get asked what kind of dogs they are. They love road trips and if I even say the word "Jeep" they go crazy!

    This is Aila, she is a 4 month old Border Collie, She has grown a lot, and has started training a lot, she listens pretty well now but is still a pup, been working a lot with her on voice commands from afar. Cant wait to take her out with us when she is ready.

    When we brought her home at 7 weeks old.


    Now




    She is still training her ears, I love how Border Collies have complete control over them, when she gets excited they perk up like in these photos, I will get some of her relaxed later.

    Here's my puppy, Sebastian, out on a ride last month with me at about 5 months old. He's a Lab/Doberman/Beagle/Collie mix and absolutely LOVES the trails. He's 6 months now and knows to stay out of the way of other bikers, dogs, etc. He'll run right along with you and sometimes sets the pace lol. Also, if I'm riding with others and someone starts lagging behind, he'll sit and wait until they catch up to him, then he'll plow along to catch up to everyone else. He's been a phenomenal puppy so far - we got him at 8 weeks and he was completely house broken by the second week we had him. He's wonderful with other dogs and off-leash at the parks he is absolutely great - many people remark about how well-behaved he is - you can ride past other people/dogs and he keeps going without a hitch. Sorry for the two crappy cell pics - the rest of the pics are when we brought him home - he was destined to be a beast from day one ;oP

    I LOVE this thread!!! Here are some pics of my dog Maddie. She was rescued from the pound at LITERALLY the last minute and has been the best dog we could have ever asked for. I just love her to pieces. I haven't had her for a ride in FOREVER (hoping to get her out next weekend!) but she has done plenty of hiking this summer and last summer and she loves the trail more than anything else. She's climbed ten 14ers in the last year and now that the weather is cooling off I'm hoping to get her out for some rides!

    Here are some pics ...











    More pictures pleeeease?

    This is my Shi-Tzu Chewy. He loves to hang out with me but he doesnt have the legs to follow me down a trail so he stays and guards the house while we ride.

    just got chased this morning by a couple german shepards on a trail near my house, i have no issues with dogs on the trails but if they don't listen to commands.. keep them on the leash. the owner didn't so much as apologize when i told him what happened (crossed paths with him while he was searching for them)

    I like this thread and am keeping it alive. I now use three German Shorthaired Pointers for my team. Two of them are adopted from the pound. I guess they were too action packed for the previous owner to handle. They are perfect for me. The other GSP was gun shy and was a cull from a hunting kennel. I call them the "action pack". My huskies are all retired now. My next race is in Roslyn Washington in late October. It is the Pacific Northwest Dryland Championships. I will enter the two dog scooter class.

    Dizzy and Mel here in the late Fall colors here and Bend. Dizzy is the one on all fours running and Mel of course is the one the bike. Dizz is a 15 month old full size Chihuahua and so far he can do 9-15 miles at a time. Not bad for a Horizontally challenged little guy.

    OK, so it took over a year, but I finally got a good shot of Shasta (older) in the lead, EB in the middle, and Baker bringing up the rear. And the best part is this is from our recent 7 Summits ride, where those two buggers did over 20 miles!

    Here is Diesel..... I wish I still have him and I know he will have so much fun... long story but I have to move to another state and my apartment don't take Pit bulls I tried everything but I ended up giving him to my friend which is a dog lover too. Sad but thats how they look at the Breed. He is a sweet dog well trained and listens to my commands pretty good. He got some tricks in his sleeves too. Loves to play football too. Never showed any aggressions or brutal attack like what the media perceives about the Breed.

    He is photogenic too

    its not the breed its the breeder and owner.
    a friend of mine also had a pitbull... when you rang the doorbell he sounded like he would tear your head off, soon as the door opens, he runs away and comes back with his rubber steak and wants you to throw it... "cool someone new,this person wont get bored with my steak as quick "lol

    I've been watching you spew this miserable energy of yours to anyone who will listen, for over a year now. I can assure you, your cantankerous complaining about about pretty much anything and everything is just as toxic to the people who have the misfortune of crossing your path as a passive smoke, or a dog who's so happy to be out getting some exercise that he has the audacity to make you slow down for 60 seconds once or twice a year.

    We teach what we most need to learn. You, Sir, I am quite sure, are the energetic equivalent of passive-smoke to every person you meet. Your choice of avatar speaks volumes.

    If this were a perfect world, everyone would live and let live. But it isn't, and since you insist on berating everyone around you for making your miserable days even more miserable -- I think a deal is in order. We'll keep the dogs off the trails if you throw away your computer.

    haha thanks! When we got her I SWORE I would never make her wear stupid outfits ... and look at her now. Actually, she only wears that stuff when its necessary - she gets cold really easily (she's lab mixed with something else - she's really lean and has NO undercoat - if the temps drop into the 20s or if its windy she starts SHIVERING) and the booties help to protect her feet from the ice and rock. Without those booties I'm positive that we would have had to CARRY her down from Mt. of the Holy Cross a few weeks ago!

    Here are a few pics from a recent ride ...

    I started mine out young and treated it as you would train a dog for any trick, command, etc. Lots of patience, treats, and positive reinforcement. Luckily for me, my dog is a very quick learner and has always wanted to stay by my side.

    I think the basics need to be taught first - that you're in command, etc. Once they know sit, stay, come, etc. then they're already better groomed for additional training.

    My dog is a little over 6 months now and I can go down a path passing people and other dogs and he'll just keep happily following me along, pretty much oblivious to everyone else. He still does have his moments where he wants to stop and check out other dogs, but normally giving a whistle will bring him running again - when he does that, he gets lots of petting, "good boy!" and a treat as reinforcement.

    Having said that, I don't think all dogs are cut out to be trail dogs, sometimes it can have something to do with the breed....but it all starts with the basic training stuff.
    Oh noes. I'm going to drink the Kool-Aid.

    Like the above poster said...lots of training. I've got my dog trained with left / right / slow commands as well as the standard "heel".

    I started her on a leash, always on the left side and just said the commands and went nice and slow.

    Yes, she got buzzed a couple of times by the tire, or got a yank on her chain when turning right but she soon picked up the idea.

    If we are riding on roads to the trail she's on a leash. If I know the trails are well used I keep her on a (long) leash, more for her protection from other dogs than anything else (she's a big softee).

    Today was the first day since early spring it was cool enough to get out and ride hard with her, and it was awesome. She was like a bolt thru the trails and I had to work to stay up with her.

    Fun times

    Here is my former trail dog, Kobuk. He's a Malamute and unfortunately he's just too old to run now. The puppy is Oskar, and he is a Australian cattle dog/Border Collie mix. I'm working on getting him trained for trails but he's only 3 mos. right now.

    The first pic is Annabelle, my first husky. She went to live with my parents when I lived in campus apartments, and she's so spoiled there that I'll never get her back! She's still my dog when I there though, but my parents love her too much for me to take her back.

    The other pics are of our current dogs. We've had the Corgi (Rupert) for about 6 months now. We adopted Leah last weekend...we're not really sure what kind of breed she is.
