    Thought I'd throw my dogs in this thread. I'll try to get some better ones of use biking together.

    Sage and Olive are the original duo. Both just over 3 years old. Sage is a cattle dog/hound mix, while Olive is a Westie/Jack Russell mix. Both are good trail dogs, especially now that they have settled down past the puppy phase. Just need to keep on eye on Olive, her little legs only go so fast, so we rip the singletrack (which is generally slow and technical here) and cruise the double track.

    Here they are this past winter, fatbiking some of our local trails.

    This was an epic day last summer in Ellicotville. It wasn't supposed to be a 25 km ride, but it turned out that way. Didn't hear a peep out of the dogs for the rest of the day, or much of the next.

    Then we got Rudy last fall. He's an American Brittany from a long line of field trialing champions. 36lbs of lean running machine. He's a monster on the trail. Speed and endurance to spare. I couldn't drop him if I tried. I just can't stop cause he gets bored and switches into bird hunting mode.

    Here is all three and Rudy on his first ride this past winter. We have a couple km of trail through our property that we snowshoe daily with the dogs. When the conditions get good, sometimes we'll go do a few laps on the fattie.

    So proud of my boy, Keep. He cruised 40 miles in 2 days on an overnight camping trip. Keys to success were keeping it to dog-trot speed, in-the-water breaks, daily woods walks, sometimes trailrides, and occasional unauthorized deer herding.

    10 miles with a two plus year old 35 pound healer. My 16 year old had done 20 plus in her younger years and more when I used the bob trailer.

    Black lab mix. She's only about 9 months old now so I limit her to about 2 miles per ride. For every mile I ride I'd say she does at least 1.5 so she gets worn out pretty quick.

    We ride everyday at dawn and most weekdays again after I get off work.
    My V averages 20 miles a day weekdays and 30 weekends. The most I've ever taken him was 40. I think he could do more, but that's usually my max.

    It's pretty flat here, lots of water and he's running on grass most of the time.

    My German Shorthair Pointer mix and pit would both run 10 miles. Rarely pushed them farther when young. Now that she's 11 never over 2 miles and usually walking. Not far over 70 degrees, either so much more in winter. In summer to a lake.

    Roxie can run all day every day if necessary, but I don't ride that far (much over 20 miles) any more. Sometimes she goes on a second ride with others though.

    Not all dogs can do this, you need breeds that are runners... medium sized, light boned, athletic bodies. They need good nutrition, training, everything you need to be able do go that far. The ones that can are happy dogs! Start them young...

    I agree 100%.
    I've learned to watch Rudi and can really tell how things effect his performance. Temperatures over 80 are really hard on him and we really take it easy. Injuries can take weeks or even months to heal.

    He five and my fifth V. They usually can run pretty well into 8 or 9 and then they start to get injured or get some weird sickness, like Blastomycosis.

    I like too ladder my dogs, because it's a lot easier to train a pup, when you already have a adult dog that does what you want. I would normally have gotten another pup by now, but I'm getting ready to move to Colorado next year and I'm going to add a pup to the pack then.

    By all means let them train their successor. I'm sure Rox will pass on her ability to run cows off the trail in front of me. She enforces a 30' clear zone, and learned to do it by listening to me talk about it, then taking her cue for the clear zone from my response, i.e. "good girl Rox" at the appropriate distance. Now she gets it and handles the matter intelligently. If you ride on public grazing land you appreciate this.

    Lucky pup, he's doing what he was bred to do. Running in a bird dog is heaven and to be running in soft grassy wet conditions is perfect for him. As stated he is ripped and that's another thing that is natural with Viszlas. Although this guy looks like a body builder.

    Unfortunately modern technology still can't capture just how muddy she was.

    I think her favorite two things in the world are going for bike rides and rolling in the mud.

    First ride since spring for this majestic trail dog:
    (she actually just caught the scent of something)



    We never go during the summer, partly because she's a big wimp for anything warmer than 15C/60F, and partly because the trails are pretty sloppy May-September.

    Kona goes with me on easier rides. Due to her nature she excels riding long stretches where she can hit a steady stride. She's good till about 80*f then you really have to watch her. Also if your not paying attention to her and the pace she will run till she's shot. Keep her paced and she will run steady for a long time. She has a short attention span and high prey drive if off lead but she will bikejorn no problem. I wish she would be better about sticking with me, I'd love to bring her on some single track off lead.

    Yeah. i could never ride with my huskies because they are so neurotic about getting off the trail..and same about the heat. I take then to the park in the fall and have them pull me on my rollerblades...which is scary sometimes once again, due to the distractions of squirrels etc. I might try taking them out this winter with me on the Krampus and see what happens. If they run off into the woods, i can at least see where they are going

    She is awesome pulling the bike. She picked up on commands very quickly and doesn't care about the distractions as long as we are moving. Unhooked and loose in the yard I've seen her jump and grab birds taking off though. Your brave doing it on roller blades!

    Wife and I took the pup out again. Not going to be a 20miler but we have fun
    He also saw his first deer. A big doe ran across about 30 feet in front of us. He started to go after it but came back when I called.

    Leela sure had a lot of energy today. 3.6 miles, which doesn't sound like much but it's about as far as I'll let her go at this point. She tends to go full-tilt for pretty much the whole ride and hasn't quite figured out how to pace herself, so only shorter distances until she's a bit older.

    Ursa, my 1 year old Rottweiler female - fast and agile. She absolutely loves it. We keep her lean and the rides in the 5-7 mile range.

    I've been jogging in our subdivision a couple of miles at a time over the last couple of weeks with Roxy so I decided to give her a shot at the wilderness today. She doesn't have the greatest recall, but overall she's a pretty decent dog. We went for a hike of about a mile and a half off-leash and she did such a great job that I turned around and pulled the bike out of my truck

    We only did a few miles, but if this ride was indicative at all of the way she is going to ride with me then we're certainly going to have a lot of fun riding for the next ten years! She steadily stayed right behind my rear wheel for about 95% of the time. Coming down A-line at Mt. Penn she couldn't keep up, but she's only 9 months old and I'm sure she'll get much faster! The only other time that she wasn't right at my rear wheel was in the two pics above and that is when she was distracted by some hikers and got off course.

    It was such a fun ride and an awesome foundation to build off of! I'm stoked!

    Ursa's turning into quite the trail dog. I've had rotties for years, and for the most part, they make great hiking and camping companions, great around kids, but are generally a lazy breed. Never have been able to get any to like riding until now. We also have a rottie/australian shepherd mix - got him thinking it would mitigate for some of the laziness of the rottie, and we'd have a riding buddy. Not so much, he's the laziest of the bunch. Ursa here, is different. She's all go, light, lean and fast. It was a blast watching her skid and drift through snowy corners at speed yesterday. Fun little girl.
