Biking With Your Dog

If you have an active dog you probably realize there is no way you are going to wear him out if you are on foot and your dog is on a leash. Biking with your dog is one of the best ways to really get your dog the exercise it needs. I think your dog would agree that running free while following your bike would be best. For many reasons, you may need to have your dog on some type of bike leash.

There are many types of bike leash on the market and all of them are some type of hard mount that fixes your dog in one spot in relation to the bike. The TugNTow is the only recoiling Bike-Leash. It allows your dog more freedom, and hence more comfort for the run, while still keeping you in control of your dog.

"It works wonderful. I have two Siberian Huskies who love to pull but the set up I have before always seemed to get caught up in the wheel, this has worked great. We went Friday, Sat, Sun, and Monday and they loved it :) It attached right to the bike that I was using."

  • biking with your dog


Features:

  • The Flat Three Post Spool/
    • → Provides graduated resistance as the line is pulled out. The first 4ft of line are easy to for your dog to pull out; this allows him to get away from the bike easily. The last three feet of line get harder and harder to pull. This prevents surprise jerks when your dog hits the end of the line a common problem to all flexi leashes. Graduated resistance gives you more control. If your dog trips or lags for a moment the TNT will give them the slack they need and recover that line as the run continues.
    • → Makes changing and customizing your line quick and easy.
    • → Makes a sound and vibration when the line goes in or out quickly (This is a great heads up when you happen to be watching the scenery and your dog hits the bakes or pulls quickly)
  • Simple Polycarbonate Construction/
    • → TugNTow is built to last
    • → Easy to work on
    • → Easy to customize

Helpful tips for using the Tug-n-Tow to bike with your dog +

Taking your dog for a bike ride is a great way to get your best friend the exercise it needs, but there is a greater risk of taking a spill on your bike and there are a few things you can do to make the activity safer.

  • • Attach the Tug-n-Tow to the head tube of your bike if your dog likes to run in front or to the side and attach it to the bike seat if your dog likes to run behind you.
  • • Leash train your dog. The better your dog is on a leash at not pulling too hard the safer your bike ride will be.
  • • Have a plan for the chance your dog bolts to chase a squirrel or something. If your dog makes a sudden change in direction you have two choices. Ride it out or bail. If you decide to stay on your bike then you should turn your bike to point at your dog first then begin to slow down. If you decide to bail then let your bike go safely and worry about yourself first. The Tug-n-Tow can take a beating and is not going to let go. Your dog will not go far with your bike dragging behind them.
  • • Learning to bike with your dog will take some effort but it's worth it. The Tug-n-Tow will make the activity safer. If you are already biking with your dog and holding the leash in your hand then the Tug-n-Tow is definitely for you.
  • • Plenty of exercise is the best gift you can give your dog, have fun, be safe and enjoy!

Tugntow break test:

I don’t have access to fancy labs but I wanted to show you the strength of the TugNTow. So I rented a load scale, rigged up a pulley system to my ATV and started breaking stuff. I have included all eight videos mistakes and all. Check it out; the TugNTow is pretty tough.

  • → Break Test 1 (Failed test) I tried to break the main line of the Mushing Rig. Video Link
  • → Break Test 2 (Successful Test) I broke the main line of the Mushing Rig at 1,625lbf. Video Link
  • → Break Test 3 (Failed Test) I tried to break the Main Housing of the TugNTow. Video Link
  • → Break Test 4 (successful Test) I broke the Main Housing of the TugNTow at 1,840lbf. Video Link
  • → Break Test 5 (Failed Test) I broke the Bungee Section of the TNT but the load scale was not on.
         Video Link
  • → Break Test 6 (Successful Test) I broke the Bungee Section at 720lbf. Video Link
  • → Break test 7 (Failed Test) To shorten the line to accommodate the pulley set up. I tied a knot in the main line of the Bike Leash Rig and this significantly reduced the strength of the line. The line broke at the knot at 570lbf. Video Link
  • → Break Test 8 (Successful test) I used a section of main line for the Bike Leash Rig that had woven loops identical to the way the Bike Leash Rig is set up. This time the load rating was more in line with what to expect. The line broke at 1,055lbf. Video Link

Note From The Inventor:

The Bike-Leash is the best place to start if your dog just wants to run along while you ride your bike. Remember that if you later train your dog to pull or decide to customize the line to meet your own specific needs the TugNTow can grow with you.

For mushers that plan on customizing their TNT right away the Bike-Leash is the best place to start. It gives you a maximum 7ft of recoiling line to start with.

Note for Beginners:

Like I have said before guys; this is a bumps and bruises sport. It’s not hard to learn and the TNT does make biking with your dog much easier and much safer. There is still a risk of falling off your bike. If you are not coordinated or good at riding a bike please don’t buy my product.

Please practice in a safe area before taking to the streets with other traffic. I suggest using a large vacated area where you can make lots of turns with your dog so your dog learns how to stay with you and you get the feel of biking with your dog.
