    Hey guys, great thread

    Here are my two boys and the simply love hitting the trails with the wife and I.
    The Jack Russell is Kobi and the Beagle is Diesel.

    Kobi isnt the fastest dog out there (with such little legs) but can and will go forever.
    Diesel is fast, but is done after about 8 kms and lets you know that he's done.

    If Im heading out for a serious ride I have to leave them behind and they do an excellent job of making me feel guilty every time I do.


    Sorry no trail pics... first couple are the boys when they were young.

    And the pic of Diesel and the kitten...I found 3 kittens dumped in the bush so brought them home so I could find a home for them. The dogs fell in love with the kittens and were a quite disappointed that we gave them away.

    So question to all you guys and gals out there with short legged dogs (under 10" long). How do they keep up on the trails? How far can they go? I'm curious as I don't think my little guy will get too much bigger the vet said maybe 30-40 lbs and he's 17 right now, so I figure if they're right he'll have about 10" front legs and wonder how far will he be able to go.

    FYI took him out for the first time Sunday for 2.25 miles and he seemed to do fine, although I had to go quite slow as his little legs just couldn't carry him that fast. Legs measure about 7" right now from under chest to ground on his front - just a little bigger than your avg Jack Russle.
    One day your life will flash before your eyes, will it be worth watching??

    My lil guy is a bit taller (I'd say his legs are about 12" long) and he's a Beagle/Dob/Lab/Collie Mix. I've had him out for 10 miles through the woods with few minute breaks here and there - and he'll still be wound up after a 10-15 minute drive home. Having said that, it depends on your dog and breed. Jack Russels are pretty high-energy and can probably go for a while but due to the short legs would need more frequent breaks.
    Oh noes. I'm going to drink the Kool-Aid.

    I usually take the guys out with the wife and make it a cruisy ride, so I dont really hammer. The only place the little guy cant keep up is on any fast descents and for those I normally back it off a bit so he can stay within sight. For everything else he sits about a foot off the back wheel the whole way, though every now and then he, or the beagle will take lead, pin the ears back and go hell or leather as long as Im behind him calling him on.

    Distance wise he will go 10km - 12km (or about 8 miles) no problems and I make sure I take a few rests along the way for them to catch their breathe.... For a small dog, Jacks are absolute machines when it comes to endurance...

    The Jack will take water if i squirt it from a bottle, the Beagle I carry a small plastic bowl in the camelback. If its going to be a ride of about 10km+ I also take some food in the form of dried fruit (apples apricots etc) which they love and stops them from bonking.

    Most of the trails we ride have water in the form of creeks, rivers or pools so I dont mind taking a short break and letting them cool off. They seem to get a huge boost from cooling down as well.

    Thanks for the feedback guys, bout what I figured he might be able t do when he reaches full size. He really amazes me right now in that he'll run as said about a 1ft behind with no worries or if we slow to a walk he'll come alongside, but he won't easily go infront.

    I've attached a pic of him if that helps anyone. He definitely doesn't have Jack Russle in him, maybe somehow Lab or Golden Retriever 'cause he absolutely loves an water he comes across and dives right in. That's a WTB PureV in the 1st pic and the tiles in the 2nd pic are 13"x13".

    Here's my Leopard Shepherd Mr. Reese playing frisbee tug-of-war at the dog park in Greenville (SC) a few weeks back. I was told when we got him that he is an Australian Shepherd/Katahoula Leopard Dog mix. He is the goofy looking brown/black/tan/white curly haired looking mutt. He can run like noboby's business and loves to bury himself in a creek when we stop for a break.

    Any tips to train my dog to ride the trail with me off lead ? I worry about her wondering off or leaving my side to go hunt squirrels . She knows basic obedience but is still very much a puppy and gets crazy about chasing squirrels .

    My dog is goofy!

    Here she is on Christmas almost sleeping in the back yard. She is nuts! She thinks she is a Husky. We go for miles...and she loves it. I'm careful on downhills to not blow out her joints. She is a 2-year-old Golden Retriever.

    Great dog shots in this thread!
    Here is my dog ready for the downhill after all the climbing
    At 120 pounds, he prefers to cruise slow and steady,
    which tends to work out well if I take him on short technical climbing rides.
    Otherwise he's more of a day hike dog.

    I went out for a ride with my girl yesterday , wow she got it fast . We walked to the park her on lead by my bike if she got to close to the bike i bumped her with the front tire and said watch out . So when we got to the trail I let the lead out long , about 15 feet and got on the bike , said lets go and she looked up at me and the bike like what? we started slow and she stayed by my side like on the walk down , so i pulled the lead off, left her choke chain on so i could grab her if needed to . no problems she crossed in front of the bike a few times and i just bumped her with the tire lightly and yelled watch it ! She did not even look at the other riders or walkers . We only did 3 1/2 miles at a slow pace .I hope to get her up to a 16 mile trail ride . And she got the drinking from the camel back hose on the first try and barked at me when she wanted a drink .

    Not many cool photos lately we been doing a bit but not much with the camera, a few swims at the beach and walks around the farm! chasing cows he loves the farm animals thinks they are pals to play with, the animals don't know what to make of him, they know hes no threat, more intrigued by him, but wary, hes such a goof ball, wonders on up then runs around at 100 miles an hour!

    First pic a friend used that and got it framed and gave it to me as a Xmas presie so that was pretty cool very nice my bestest presie!














    More updated picc's here from today! 2009 1st of the 1st yeahaaaaaaaaa

    sorry, but this is not the case. national forests are administered by the US forest service, part of the department of agriculture. nationa parks are administered by the US park service, which is in the department of interior.

    each agency has separate objectives in land management and conservation. geographcially, national parks are not specifically located inside of national forests. national parks and forests are scattered throughout the nation.

    national parks are sometimes more restrictive than national forests, but some land in national forests is very restricted (e.g., wilderness areas in national forests). rules for bikes, motorized vehicles, dogs, etc. are often established locally.

    I always wondered how many foreclosures happened because of (wo)mans overpowering need to domicile hir "best friend". . .

    The first doggy that follows me home from the trail gets to stay, till then I'm happy to mind my own business as it were.

    Thanx for the great pix, I love YOUR dogs!

    We picked up a German Shorthaired Pointer tonight.






    My Yellow Lab hasn't warmed up to her yet. I think she's actually afraid of her.





    We still need to pick a name that starts with S. Wife likes Snickers or Skittles. I like Sage or Sona. Kids haven't really said what they like yet.

    I havent been in touch with the forums lately so I appologize, since I have left, we adopted 2 rescue dogs, one a golden retriever one a beautiful rotty pup. We did however lose my 7 month old border collie to a very tragic accident. Just the other day we went and picked out a Australian cattle dog puppy. So that brings our puppy total up to, 1 wolfdog, 1 Rotty, 1 Golden, 1 Cattle Dog. We need more people to ride with.


    Quin, was a service dog placed horribly wrong the child beat him, he loves to ride, rain or shine

    Max, was a little to destructive for a 1 bedroom apartment (duh) He isnt such a fan of riding yet but he loves to play with Raffi the wolfdog

    And this is Ozzy, I am almost certain he will be up for marathon like rides, cattle dogs have more stamina than any dog I have met outside of the husky. (he is only 5 weeks old right now so we dont get him for a little while) Sorry for the crappy photo I took it, not matt.


    Raffi the wolf puppy, she loves living here in Maine, plenty of land to run on, she is a great personality, and listening to her howl at night is so relaxing.

    Aila may she rest in peace

    So yes our 5 bedroom house is quickly filling not with people but with animals. but its okay, more news since we have taken a leave from the forums. We are getting married!

    Man, that is a beautiful Golden! Nice score on the rescue! I'm hoping to add a Golden to my team as well. Right now my Aussie is keeping me busy. Cheers

    Thanks! he knows a list of 85 commands, its kind of nuts to be honest, he was meant to be a friend for some disabled kid, someone to help him focus and learn to care for something, and the kid goes and beats him, took us a good while to get him to warm up to us, but now he is very social everyone on the trails love him because he is so well behaved, he runs faithfully in between Matt and I, never to either side nor in front. I worry some about the joint problems goldens are notorious for so we have been taking it pretty easy with him.

    Rescued

    This is our little(ish) beagle/pointer/pitbull? mix Stella.

    She is full of piss and vinegar - loves to run, chase her ball, and try to solve problems. She's a great little dog we adopted from the local pound, and we think she was just a couple of days away from doom.



    She's done 16 miles of trail running in a day so far, and I'm hoping to train her to follow me on the MTB this spring. I don't think that will be much of a problem, though.

    We were at Coopers Rock last weekend, a local state forest, and my wife and I were heading out for a run hot on the trail of a group of guys on bikes. Stella was barking and whining, and looking over her shoulder at us. We think she wanted to go and find the guys on bikes.



    Tons of energy, love, and affection from this dog.

    I think Stella could beagle beagle/pit bull mix. Her face looks a lot like my parent's dog Lucy who is a beagle/pit bull mix. Here are two pictures of Lucy so you can compare how they look.

    We really have no idea. We *think* she has some pointer in her because she has longish legs. She definetly has the well-defined musculature of a pit bull, but pointers and other hunting dogs have similar characteristics. Whatever she is, she's high-energy, smart, and affectionate.

    So many beautiful dogs, I'm very proud of this thread that there are others out there who love riding with dogs. I did have a few really nice ones recently, but too big to download.
    I have done two recent night rides soon with them and I love night riding and so do they I prefer day riding with them because I can see their expression better.

    So here's a pic of Millie after last nights ride

    my dog minds me and behaves really well when he is with me. but if we are going on a ride with a large group i don't bring him because i don't want everyone to feel as if they are going to have to try to avoid him

    Buddy

    Supposedly Buddy is a Pitbull-Beagle mix, but this is left unconfirmed. He does have the jaw of one and the ears of the other...

    Despite countless occasions with him on the trails here in the NW, Buddy has yet to be documented in action. The time will come, the time will come. In the meantime, apply imaginations deliberately.
