Riding your bike and exercising your dog at the same time can be tricky. The benefits of fun and fitness are offset by the potential dangers of having your dog on a leash while you're trying to control a bicycle. However, with the Dog Runner Bicycle Leash, balance is no longer a problem. The leash is attached to a pipe that is connected to a low-mounted steel spring that prevents your dog from moving too close to the bicyle or too far away from it. This keeps your hands free for steering and keeps your dog from pulling or pushing you off balance or walking in front of the wheels.
The Dog Runner bike leash is TÜV certified! TÜV certification involves rigorous testing of the applications for which the component is designed. It includes verification that the device satisfies the strictest European regulations for the industry in which the component was designed for and ensures the component specifications are stated correctly. Periodic retesting of the component is required to maintain TÜV approval and the certification is without question the most comprehensive testing any product would undergo.
The Dog Walker can be mounted on either side of the bicycle. A bracket is attached to the frame of your bike and then the steel tube that holds the spring is inserted into the mounting bracket with a quick-release pin. This setup allows you to remove the Dog Walker from the mounting bracket (or reattach it) quickly and easily. You can also buy an optional mounting bracket for a second bicycle so that you can move the Dog Walker leash from one bike to another.
The Dog Walker fits any round-tube bike frame that is 0.9" to 1.4" (25-36mm) in diameter.
Note: If your dog is not accustomed to running next to a bike, you should not overdo it in the beginning. Allow your dog to determine the speed and duration of the trip.
