Mountain Bike/Scooter Guidelines:
Start with short loops instead of a long trip.

1) Avoid concrete when you are able to minimize joint stress
2) Carry plenty of water
3) Be watchful of hazards
4) Ride within your dogs limitations
5) Stop and rest as needed
6) Increase speed as fitness levels increase

Swag_Tip_short-muzzles*When riding your bike with your dog consider a safe leash attachment.

An effort should be made to work your dog on softer surfaces such as dirt, wood chips, or a DogTread Treadmill that provides a softer surface for joints and ligaments than concrete and asphalt.
