    I have two shorthairs.. I don't take them on trails while riding..my choice.. but I bike 3 to4 thousand mi per year and those dogs off leash look happy to be alive. Leashes just take all the responsibility of training out of the owners hands. Dogs NEED to seek for their mental health. The real hazard on the trail are F@#$%& I-pods..

    This is Hugh. He is only 4 months so I haven't taken him on the trails yet. In about a month I will introduce him. Tons of energy!

    Go easy on him until he is over a year old and you'll have a healthy running companion for many years.

    Thanks! I've heard cattle dogs don't do well with things that go in circles...like my wheels. Hope he likes the trails.

    but if i come across you on the trail and you dog is all over the place and out of control it will cost you $106.00. If you dog is well trained and actually listens to you, a verbal warning for it being off leash will do. I'm tired of lazy people who refuse to take responsibility/properly train their animals. it has cost me too much time, work and heartache in the past. ie; responding to injured hikers/bikers/horseback riders, broken bones, nuisance dogs, dog bites, dogs chasing wildlife, etc. leash your dog if it's the rule...if you refuse, buy property big enough to do whatever you want and take the liability if your dog is out of control.
    just be responsible and accountable for your animal. thats all i ask

    i wish i had a dog to take out on the trails with me . i think it is on of the greatest things . my bf and i have 2 dogs but neither one is a good trail dog. one is 8 and has bad joints and he is a beagle . the other one is a small dog that i would have to carry after no time at all but they give us much support when we are out . they find things we dont need to eat like hersey kisses . sunday we came home to all of them eaten but 2 they were nice to share .

    Im sure you know this but extremely careful with choclate around your dogs. It contains a chemical that is a cardiac stimulant and diuretic. It could just make the dog extremely thirsty and have an upset stomach but since canine livers dont process choclate, it will build up in the liver over time. Heart attacks due to hightened heart rates are the most common choclate related death cause.

    Amelia

    hoping to take my girl Amelia out this spring. she is three, loves jumping into the Boise River and swimming around. I am sure she would make a great trail dog, boundless energy, strong, and agile.

    It is a full breed Corgi cardigan, but she has got a bit of long legs on her - if you can call it "long legs" on a dog like that

    I'm sorry to here that. Our Yellow Lab Palmer had that happen. After his surgery his fetching days are over, but he can still swim!

    Corgi's rock!

    I've got a 6 year old pembroke, haven't tried riding with her, she listens very well but I guess I assumed her legs were a bit short for long trail rides, but she keeps up with us on 10 mile hikes with no issues

    She injured her CCL when she was 3, being so young we had options and we opted out of surgery and kept her on light duty, no stairs, no jumping etc for a few months and she pulled thru despite the initial assumption she would "need" the surgery, she's been running around for 3 years now like nothing happened, I'm so happy for her

    Glad to hear she is doing fine..
    I have never had any problems on the trail, she has always kept up and never look like she couldn't cope - when the trail gets to technical, she always run ahead - there is no waiting for me
