With our husky x, our work was cut out for us in the exercise department! Two walks a day just wasn't cutting it, so I decided to invest in the WalkyDog (and a bike!) to really wear him out. It's solid, well made and I love the shock absorbing qualities.
It took our dog a little while to figure out what was going on but after about 5 minutes he had it all figured out - helped along by my constant encouragement ("Come on, boy! Come on! Run! Good boy!"; I was that person riding past people's houses talking to herself). Pup pulled a fair bit, but I barely felt most tugs and I never felt like I'd lose control of the bike.
When attaching this to your bike, make sure it is TIGHT. I attached it too loosely to begin with and it was twisting around with every tug, making it very hard to use. So, to be safe, when you think it's tight enough - tighten it more! When I had it attached correctly it worked brilliantly. I'm looking forward to my next ride - in fact, I might take pup out now :)

Absolute winner from the word go. Heavy duty sturdy and easy to attach and remove. Was a little concerned on the first go, had no idea how Angus was going to react! How? Like a duck to water, I was thrilled for him. Angus is a big strong dog with energy to burn. Should say the springs really help to absorb any jerky movements by the dog, this was really important to me as I have a frozen shoulder, so I cannot support myself properly on one side. Really impressed with this gadget, so is Angus! Well worth the money

Fantastic. Loved it. Truman our very large Groodle loved it too!

The Walky Dog is not flimsy, the metal parts feel like good quality. It can attach either side of the bike, be angled variously & is easy to put on and tighten with the allen key provided. Internal springs are adjustable. My dogs have not needed special training for being on the Walky Dog.

Easy to Mount and great quality. However the main pole structure interferes with your leg cycle as your peddling. This can't be helped as if you notice as your riding or see someone else ride, their hamstring/back of the thigh cycles past the seat post point. I've tried this on both the road and mountain bike I have with the same issue. But this product is excellent in all other aspects and I think it's a great for someone who's concerned about their K9 crossing in front of their path as this eliminates this possibility :) thanks for stocking this product.

This is absolutely wonderful, I love to be able to ride with the dog and this makes it so much easier. I can keep the bike steady and dont have to worry about her pulling me over. So easy to install on the bike, took me alll of 5 minutes and we were away.

Brilliant!! Poppy, my little Jack Russell loves it. It was really easy to fit to the bike, although Poppy doesn't pull at all usually, the other day she did because she wanted to sniff where she knew there was a mouse hiding :) I couldn't feel her pulling at all which amazed me because although she isn't a big dog she is quite strong.

Excellent product. Easy to secure to bike. My German Shepherd is a puller but the Walky Dog Bicycle Leash stops her in her tracks and I even have a second secured to the other side of my bike for our Belgian Shepherd puppy. I am able to handle both and travel a good distance in a short period of time. Great idea.
