    I love dogs. I love dogs more than people. I've never seen a dog stab another dog in the back for a promotion, or kill another dog over a religious dissagreement. This being so stated, on with the business at hand.
    The number of times I've had to lock up a brake and skid to a stop to avoid an unleashed dog, kinda kills my passion for your four legged friend on the trail. Why should I have to be at risk for serious injury or death because of your lifestyle choice? Oh, wait. Were we talking about second hand smoke, or dogs.
    Your fear of looking stupid is holding you back.

    That argument is amazingly laughable.

    Who do you blame when the bee bites you on the nose riding on the trail?

    Oh wait, you suffer from entitlement issues-- that the trail should be only for you and every moment with the events that happen on the trail is in your complete control, don't you? Well biking is about dealing with obstacles and challenges. Dogs are just another form of them.

    When you go skiing do you complain about the skiers who are slow and get in your way too, causing you to almost whipe out?

    Accept that people have dogs on some trails and get over it. If you know the bar has smokers, don't hang out in those bars if you want to avoid the risk. It's very simple.

    Personally, I just run over a dog if it's in my way on the trail...they are fairly tough and easy to train with negative reinforcement.

    Where I go I seldom see anyone else.
    It is however mostly public forest and public land and I have just has much right to be there with my dog and use it in my way as the guy without one or the person on a horse or the person on a motorcycle or the birdwatcher or fisherman or hunter.
    I understand there motivations and reasons for being there and respect that and acomadate them and am courtious an tolerant of them.
    Most if not all are the same for me.
    If someone told me I can't let my dog off the leash even out in the middle of the woods. Well.. I mean come on

    In any given space with different users theres going to be a conflict of interest over how the space is used. I feel as long as dog owners take reasonable steps to ensure there dog is not creating a hazard by training them as pups not to chase cyclists, sitting/coming to heel when called first time ect; there is no problem. Its about sharing and compromising for the sake of everyones enjoyment.

    Any number of naturally occuring obstacles such as fallen trees or wild animals may cause you to slow down. Slower, perhaps nervous begginer trail riders may also clog up single track. We wouldn't remove them would we!

    Awesome dog pictures, keep it up!

    I ride with my dog. While she's a really good trail dog, she sometimes pisses me off when she won't get out of my way. When I ride with other people, it is my responsibility to make sure I'm the only one she pisses off.

    If you run into us on the trails and she's in your way, give her a little shout and a little bump if that's not enough. If you're fast enough that she gets in your way while riding fast, then you should have sufficient skills to achieve that. Apply your skills and you won't wipe out...

    Sorry, I don't have shots of her on the trails...

    Indy is a German Shepherd and he runs trail like it's his job. If I say "ride" or "bike", he goes crazy. If I touch my bike, he runs to the front door and waits.

    To the dog haters out there...
    Indy is trained to run right behind my bike and as long as you leave him alone, he probably won't even pay any attention to you because he is too busy doing his job. He has never caused anyone any problems on the trail. AND I haven't had issues with anyone else's dogs when I ride.

    To the dog owners out there...
    Show respect to others by making sure your dog is properly trained. Riding buddies, other trail users and even YOUR DOG will respect you more. Use your head. Leave the pooch at home when you know it is the right thing to do.

    I wish I really could be as wonderful as my dog thinks I am.

    your "lifestyle choice" of riding a mountain bike puts you at risk of serious injury or even death BY DEFAULT. what's the difference between a dog running loose on the trail and a rabbit? or a deer? or even another human being for that matter?
    a dog running loose on the trail off leash just gives you someone else to blame. a good rider rides under control, and has a pretty decent sense of what's going on around him. if you're flying blindly downhill and around corners with little to no concern for what may lie ahead, then its not the fault of anyone other than yourself if you hit someone, someone's pet or even a tree.

    so YOUR choice to ride a mountain bike is greater and more important than the choices of any other trail users? say, a hiker? a hiker with a dog? a biker with a dog? i must've missed the sign at the trailhead that stated the trails could only be used according to YOUR choices.

    I like dogs... but I have seen a few people not have them in control -- I've been almost attacked twice by dogs (good thing I was doing downhill and was able to out run them, and the owners finally got them under control). If I had a dog I'd go with it on a trail, but I thought it was illegal to have an unleashed dog on public (any) lands? At least, I thought it was in New York state, but please correct me if I am wrong.

    I love dogs. I love dogs a lot. I've ridden with guys who have their dogs hauling ass right with us, head right off their back wheel. But I also have a nice scar across the bridge of my nose from where I went over the bars after trying to avoid a dog not on a leash. I would consider having a dog not on a leash the same as being a d**k on the trails. It's a matter of etiquette.

    This attitude sucks. There is no need to belittle him for taking evasive action and injuring himself rather than creaming the dog. Who are you to make that judgment, not having been there?

    If it comes down to me and the dog......the dog is getting the bashguard. I still know that they are easy to hop.

    could you hop a full grown wolfhound? or a mastiff?

    I know what you mean about putting yourself before the dog, but you're generalizing a bit here.

    Unless the dog is knee high to a grasshopper, smacking into the dog (With a bicycle) isn't going to hurt it.

    After a dog is bike savvy (one front tire smack), that dog shouldn't be a problem with bicycles.

    Most dogs are smarter than most people so that's no surprise.

    Actually next time I'm hitting the owner. It's not the dogs fault; he's just being a dog. And the bike skills aren't a problem.

    I'm going for a record on how many times the first one can be posted... thanks for the pic edemtbs.

    As far as bikes and dogs, if the place you ride allows dogs off a leash expect to encounter dogs off a leash. You guys that complain about it can go ride where dogs aren't allowed if its such a big deal. If you are bothered by a dog when riding in a place where its not allowed I can understand being annoyed. Jeez, some peoples sense of entitlement and ego are getting out of hand...

    Good thread!

    Here's my loyal riding partner, Klaus. Unfortunately, he's been sidelined for the last month and a half. He almost died from an intestinal problem (intestinal adhesion or something like that) that needed surgery to correct. As soon as I get his weight back up and the vet clears him, I'll take him back out on the trail.





    This is him 3 weeks after his surgery. Still on the skinny side.

    I love these threads where someone posts a pic of his dog having a blast on a ride and then it evolves into the "dogs shouldn't be off leash" argument.

    As mtnbiker66 says, if it comes down to me or the dog on the trail, the dog's getting it. Both of our dogs have been hit when they were learning to ride by me and other buddies. My message to them (my buddies) was that they'll learn if they get a tire in their rear a couple of times so I asked them to give the dogs a bit of a tire rub if they didn't yield from a voice command (move). Sure enough, after a few of those, we've never had an issue with them getting in the way again.....that's 2-3 rides per week for 4 and 6 years respectively.

    DaveC, your record is in tact!! That pic still rules though....... If I even walk into my garage, my boys know something is up and then start running around the house like a bunch of monkeys on crack.

    Cheers,
    EB

    Yeah, I picked it for the Chukchi (Siberian Native people) word for "fast". While out for a run one day, I yelled "SUKA!" real loud across the park, and a Russian girl was there walking her dog (an officially Off Leash dog park, by the way) and she giggled, said it was Russian for "*****". Not in a derogatory way, but just meant "female dog", huh.

    Rick D,
    It seems you have a good perspective of the English language but do you actually understand it. You state that “It’s a matter of etiquette”. But what gives you the right to jump into a thread with the title “dogs w/ Passion” and ***** like a little school girl. Typically, I would not respond to something as trivial as your comments. But when I reviewed your profile I discovered that you live in Chicago and have invested over 6 g’s into a mountain bike. Then I realized what type of person you are, a gas guzzling yuppie SUV driver. Who leaves the city to come out to the the country side for your riding. Maybe we would rather you stay in the city, since you seem to leave a trail of destruction where ever you go.

    I ride every day with dogs and have yet to be taken out by one of them. But I do have bike skills which have come from years of riding. However, even with my bike skills, I have been taken out by bikers who ride out of control. I do not know your bike skills nor do I care. But if you can’t miss a dog in the trail, you should buy some lessons. That seems to be your MO

    In conclusion, you are being a d**k on this thread. Go back to your condo and ride the lake front.

    Great trail pups! My dogs have passion, but doubt they could keep up on the trail. My dog, Sasha (the one in the background) would fit in my Camelbak, but she's terrified of it.

    Nice! Klaus is the same way, he'll do that bark/howl thing the whole way to the trail head. Cracks me up!

    Man, Lilly is huge compared to Klaus. He was real sick when he was a puppy, it kind of stunted his growth. I gotta mini weim. Still a spaz though, makes me tired just watching him. --Mark

    Interesting thread. Mixed emotions for me. I own a beautiful dog, but do not ride with her. The bottom line is we as dog owners are responsible for our pets. If we choose to walk, or ride with the animal off the leash, it falls on us. Where I live, its against the law to have them unleashed. I admire the well trained animals who are able to run with the bikers. But if a situation arrives, the owner better be prepared to get off the bike, or do whatever it takes to ensure the safty, or comfort of others. I am on both sides here. There are times when I am walking my dog, and a biker hauls past us at a much too close distance. It startles myself, and sometimes the dog. 2 months ago while I was riding, a unleashed large dog decided to run me down. At 1st he was biting at my rear tire. I stopped, and he decided my foot looked like a better object to him. At this point, I reached into my pack, and grabbed a folding baton that I carry. Long story short, I broke his front paw. The owner called the police on me. The owner was cited for unleashed pet, and some wreckless BS charge. I did not choose to persue any other charges. As a pet owner, if my dog ever showed aggression like that, I would drive her head thru the ground! No matter what the situation, a responsible pet must do whatever is necessary to ensure the safty and well being of other animals, and people.

    Berlin loves to ride. Only way to get her even close to tired, unfortunately if she is tired I am dead. Never had a problem with her on the trails, she knows the sound of a fast rolling tire and jumps off the trails if she hears one gaining.

I admire the well trained animals who are able to run with the bikers. But if a situation arrives, the owner better be prepared to get off the bike, or do whatever it takes to ensure the safty, or comfort of others. I am on both sides here. There are times when I am walking my dog, and a biker hauls past us at a much too close distance. It startles myself, and sometimes the dog. 2 months ago while I was riding, a unleashed large dog decided to run me down. At 1st he was biting at my rear tire. I stopped, and he decided my foot looked like a better object to him. At this point, I reached into my pack, and grabbed a folding baton that I carry. Long story short, I broke his front paw. The owner called the police on me. The owner was cited for unleashed pet, and some wreckless BS charge. I did not choose to persue any other charges. As a pet owner, if my dog ever showed aggression like that, I would drive her head thru the ground! No matter what the situation, a responsible pet must do whatever is necessary to ensure the safty and well being of other animals, and people.

    That sucks about your laws... I have worked with my dog enough to trust him around kids, dogs, and horses. Cats and Cows on the other hand are fair game . Sometimes I will have a shock collar on mine if we will be around grazing cattle, etc. but I never really need to use it anymore. There are area where dogs are allowed off the leash, but if the dog cannot follow voice commands it can be an issue.

    One of the plusses of riding with my dog is he will grab other dogs and pull them away from me if they act suspicious or jump up on me. He's done that a couple times without hurting the other dog. He will only get mean if another dog outright attacks him.

    He's an American Pit Bull Terrier, 2.5 yrs old, 65 lbs

    He won Judge's Choice from Hank Greenwood, Chairman of the ADBA at a show last summer: http://www.adbadog.com/p_home.asp but his tail sticks out a touch too high which might keep him from being a grand champion show dog. I don't have the time to show him anyway, rather be riding...

    I'm guessing yours is an apbt, or maybe an amstaff?

    Close. Dogo Argentino. 1 Years old. She weighs 95 lbs, and can be quite a handful. We still have alot of work to do with her training.

    Hey LarsXC - this is a little off topic from the original post, but do you have any puppy pics of her? This is our new little guy (rescuee) and I'm trying to figure out what exactly he is besides the usual "pit mix" label they get at the shelter when they look anything like a pit. 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!

    Don't encourage him Patrick......we're doomed to see that pic forever!

    Seriously, I'm super envious of that pic.....I'd love to get a pic of my boys hauling arse like that. It's rad when I've got my older dog in the lead and my younger one on my rear wheel and we're just rippin' it up and launching over everything. SO FUN! Dave's got a winner with that shot!!

    Cute pup Rubberside. May have some Dogo in him. As a reference point, my girl weighed 31 lbs at 8 weeks. Female Dogo's go around 80-100 lbs, males 90-120

    I've only ridden a handful of times with mine because I don't want to have to deal with other dogs if I don't have a leash on him. He does not always get along with other dogs, especially other males. The few times I did take him on rides was over the winter on a few night rides since I figured I would have the trail to myself and he loved it.

    I have a question for all you who take your dogs riding with you.When I try and take mine out he goes full throttle as soon as we leave and of course runs out of steam pretty fast, so we are only able to go on short rides.Any advice on getting him to take it slow at first.

    Good luck with that! Seriously, I don't know many dogs that don't go ape sh*t as soon as a ride starts.....

    The best thing you can do is just to take him out more often and start upping his mileage until he gets into better shape. Maybe he's a breed that doesn't have the stamina though.....but you can't really tell unless you start getting him out on longer rides. I really find that if I don't take my dogs on rides for a couple of weeks, they have a drop off in their stamina. Last summer, we got married and went on our honeymoon so they didn't ride for a month and were in horrible riding shape when we got home. No matter how many walks they went on, it's just not the same.

    Cheers,

    BikeJoring!

    Make him pull you on your bike. That is why I ride with mine, especially on leash. I can't run fast enough to run with them without getting pulled.

    When I had a trail-running pooch, he was well trained at "heel". Early on, he tried to boogie on by at
    a faster speed, so here's what I did that sounds cruel, but really isn't. I'd take him on a flat,
    easy trail that had high (3 ft) grass off to the sides. If he came up beside me, I'd "crowd" him over
    into the high grass where he was forced to back off on speed. It worked. A couple of attempted
    passes resulting in that type of "issue" for him to contend with? Nope. He was a fast learner.
    Passing no workie. Me back off and heel now. Arf.

    Boogie was one smart lab. I had him trained to do goofy stuff like walk backwards up stairs.

    15 years old and it was game over.

    I also had a very well trained Great Dane though there's no way in h ell I would take him out
    for a trail run! He'd win in the "crowd out" maneuver.

    dogs

    The harrier hound is Tele (as in telemark skiing). She is my brother's dog and can easily do 20 miles of singletrack without getting tired.

    Sadie is the younger golden retriever. She is two and can usually get around 4 miles in before she is pooped out.

    The pic of two dogs is Jake and Amber. Amber is the older one, she made it to 15 years old, but passed at this past Christmas.

    They all love the woods!

    how do you train a dog to do this?

    i love my dogs, but i dont ride with them because ive seen dogs run in front of their owners bike, others bikes, or get lost in the woods going too far ahead or getting distracted by sights and smells that take them far off trail. and what happens when they run thru poison oak?

    Technically they're my brother's dogs, but I've been they're "roommate" for a few years. Never taken dude riding outside of the neighborhood. He's a good natured dog, but I've seen things that let me know that I won't be able to control him in every situation (nothing bad, but I won't take that chance). There aren't any places around here that would be out of the way enough for me to feel that it's ok to have him along with me on a ride.

But when I reviewed your profile I discovered that you live in Chicago and have invested over 6 g’s into a mountain bike. Then I realized what type of person you are, a gas guzzling yuppie SUV driver. Who leaves the city to come out to the the country side for your riding. Maybe we would rather you stay in the city, since you seem to leave a trail of destruction where ever you go.

    I ride every day with dogs and have yet to be taken out by one of them. But I do have bike skills which have come from years of riding. However, even with my bike skills, I have been taken out by bikers who ride out of control. I do not know your bike skills nor do I care. But if you can’t miss a dog in the trail, you should buy some lessons. That seems to be your MO

    In conclusion, you are being a d**k on this thread. Go back to your condo and ride the lake front.

    Wow. You have a lot of built up anger. You should go for a bike ride or something. I'm flattered that my comment has sparked so much discussion.

    FWIW, I don't own an SUV, hate riding the lakefront, and try my best to get off road two days a week. Been doing it for nearly 20 years now, no plans to stop any time soon. That is, when I'm not apparently kicking puppies out of my way as I drive to the gas pump.

    I honestly didn't think my one comment would spark so much controversy. Funny thing is, I used to ride in Atlanta with a guy who would always bring his pit bull with us to Bull Mountain, and I loved riding with him and his dog. And I even (pause for effect) have a dog of my own. I don't bring him with me because he's a little lap dog and not suited for the trails.

    There are a lot of awesome pics in this thread, too.

    constant companion

    Here is my constant companion Penny. She loves single track! good for about 10-15km before she's pooped.

    We got her from the SPCA a few years ago she's a very sweet dog however we had a hard time exercising her because she won't play with anything ( no balls, squeak toys or anything... she's far too serious for those ), anyways my wife convinced me to try taking her biking with me, she eats it up! when the bike comes out it's like she's just going to explode with excitement.

    For those of you who have your dog running off leash and would like the ability to still control them if they get out of hand I suggest a remote training collar. Penny's weakness is chasing rabbits and other small game, 99 times out of 100 she will respect 'no' however there are times the collar has to be used, it has a vibrate/ultrasonic noise that she is trained to return to my side if she hears, if that doesn't work it has 10 levels of correction that jolt her, it doesn't really hurt ( I've tried it on myself ) it's just more freaky than anything, messes with your muscles for a second. you can find them at pet smart and those places as well as http://www.gundogsupply.com/

    Dog Training

    I have been using a training collar due to the fact ,my dogs are also trained for upland birds. They work great. There is also a new thing that Garmin has out that works w/ a training collar. One of the guys I ride w/ got one for his border collie. It has a transceiver that sits on top of the training collar and emits a signal to a small hand base unit in real time 1/16 second intervals (https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?cID=209&pID=8576). He is able to know where his dog is at all the time. The system can take multiple dogs.

    After the ride he is able to download both his and the dog paths as an overlay. The dog ran 15 miles compared to his 8 on the bike.

    I'm sure there can be many other uses for one of these so beware.

    I cant resist a thread about dogs and bikes.
    Liderman... You need to connect your dogs front and center to the stem or the head tube. You will have much more control that way with both hands on the grips. Go to my website at www.skijor.com to see how to make your own lines and to learn more about bikejoring.

    I am not sure if I posted this photo my wife took of me with my team in 2001.

    Here's our dog...with passion...

    this is her normal workout....it's a great way for me to end a ride...a 30 minute neighborhood cool down. she also makes a great bike porn photo assistant. all of these things tire her out a great deal...which makes one happy dog.

    I actually had no idea it was legal to have dogs OFFleash on government or public land *anywhere* in the USA. We sometimes sneak our dogs out to parks that are low people traffic and let them get some energy out, but it's very stealthy and there's no way we could be on the bikes because we need to be on high alert for people or FPD Cops. We often see people, call the dogs in and hide in the bushes until they pass. Under cover ops.

    After the second $150 ticket for dogs off leash (off the wide public path and not bothering anyone)... my fiance was told he would have to appear in court the third time to defend himself. The hassle, expense and constant worry you might get caught makes it SO not worth it!

    I hear ya on that.

    I'd never dream of taking my dog to the trails here in Connecticut. Way over crouded - I dislike it when I see people with dogs off leash around here myself. However, in vermont where my chances of seeing someone else on the trails/roads I ride are < 1% (and is usually on property owned by my family, relatives or neighbors whom I know dont mind) i dont hesitate.

    Haha, my dog is named Bear too! You'd be surpised at how different a dog will act on trail. My lab tries to herd and tackle me in the back yard as well since its his playground with which he is all too familar and to an extent bored of. On the trail he is too distracted by the horizon and road to be concerned with me

    I wish.

We often see people, call the dogs in and hide in the bushes until they pass. Under cover ops.

    After the second $150 ticket for dogs off leash (off the wide public path and not bothering anyone)... my fiance was told he would have to appear in court the third time to defend himself. The hassle, expense and constant worry you might get caught makes it SO not worth it!
    I've never heard of that law. What about hunting dogs on public land? I'm not saying there aren't areas where leashes are the law, but I have never heard of it applying to all public land.
    I have dogs and the amount of time they spend off leash would make the anti trail dog posters have a heart attack. Fortunately I live where dogs off leash is the norm. This is out of city limits, of course. I completely respect the leash laws that exist in the city limits or where otherwise clearly posted. But outdoors in nature the dogs run free. It's not the out of control extreme danger that some people seem to think.

    Leash laws are different everywhere. Most City Parks, State Parks, National Parks/Monuments have a leash law, or just NO DOGS, good to check into. But many municipalities state a dog must be "under control" in general, and that can mean fence/leash/shock collar/voice command. Most USFS and BLM land is wide open for pets that are "under control".

    But it is a good idea to just avoid conflict and crowded areas whether you are in the right or not. I get my dog out every morning very early, we run right through our neighborhood a few blocks and then hit a 150 acre open space park, generally no conflicts at 6 am.

    Dogs love to run!

    THis is great advice. I run my dogs on the trails a short drive out of town where I rarely run into another person. Granted, I am fortunate to have this option available to me. But I run into people all the time on the trails in walking distance from town with dogs off leash. I smile and try to greet the dog, too. I don't panic and cry fowl. Dog picture threads always turn down this line of conversation, and I guess I'm falling right into it, too. I guess I'm just fortunate that the attitudes seem a little better towards dogs where I live.

    They love running! That pic always makes me think of the Hermann Maier book "Race of My Life". The book is about his comeback from major injury, and this dog has had some injuries to come back from, too! The sepia filter and the snow crystals flying make me connect the two pics

    Good job! My pup

    This is Leeloo.


    We got Leeloo from a shelter in Atlanta before we moved to CA. She was a very sick dog about 2 yrs. old. She weighed in at 32 lbs. with 4 puppies, heartworms, kennel cough and a number of other nasty issues. We adopted Leeloo and donated all we could afford to donate to the shelter. After around $2k in vet bills and several months of love she rewarded the kindness by being one of the best dogs I have ever seen. She is possibly the smartest dog I've ever known. She yields to commands and the trail, she poops off trail, she rides behind instead of in front, she drinks from a camelback, stays out of other bikers ways and does not mess with other dogs on trail. She can't wait to get out of the hosue and on the trail be-it on leash or off. Were pretty sure she is a boxer pit mix. She's currently weighing in at about 65 lbs which seems to be 90% muscle. The training we gave her was non-existant all she wants to do is please it seems. I don't have any action shots of her but I will get some.

    That video hit me where it hurt like a headbutting midget!

    I love the pictures of the beagles! I used to have a beagle and he would love to hike with me, ride, and hunt with me. He always stayed close and if you called him he would immediately come to you. Man did he go nuts when you took a gun out of the case, pulled out hiking boots, or rolled the bike out of the garage. He was a great dog. Thanks for the posts it put a smile on a my face and I needed it today.

    As for people taking their dogs on heavy human traffic areas without a leash; well it is dangerous, but I don't mind if a dog is friendly. I can usually just dodge a dog or yell at them and they run away, but when people don't know how their dogs will react around people really bugs me.

    I've been attacked 3 times on the trails by dogs off the leash and unfriendly. Just think before you take your dog unleashed in public. If they have any chance of being aggressive then leave them at home because eventually you will lose one of them if they go after the wrong person. Some people take a more lethal protection stance against aggressive dogs.

    I love dog passion threads though. You all have some beautiful dogs!

    Raffi my 1 year old wolf hybrid, state laws prevent me from riding with her off a leash, as a matter of fact they prohibit me taking her anywhere without a leash. If someone in Maine sees a Wolf Hybrid (as if they are going to know it isn't just a Husky or Shepard mix) off a leash they can legally shoot it. She loves to go biking but is limited to the 20 acres behind my house that I own, or a leashed ride, and she doesnt care for that.

    My girlfriend just got a Border Collie pup, you can bet your bottom dollar that as soon as she is big enough she will be out on the bike with me, I have started training her around my property. She may have to lose the pink collar though.
