Top Tales For Biking With Dogs
5 Tips for Mountain Biking With Your Dog
Ruffwear Ambassador Laura Patton and her dogs Star and Colt are big fans of hiking, biking, and skiing through the endless terrain of their Pacific Northwest home. Here are Laura's top 5 tips for getting started when mountain biking with your dog.
Waypoints: Tom & Ruby
There's no speedier duo than Tom & Hungarian Vizsla Ruby on the trails – Tom on his mountain bike and Ruby on her four paws. Here, Tom shares their favorite waypoint for biking and running, Wakerley Woods.
My Dog is My Sidecar
At a time when my life and my future felt like they had shattered into pieces and I was trying to pick them back up, Bernie was the furry, steadfast presence of love and thrill that allowed me to hold it together and eventually build something even better than I had. Bernie is always by my side. He’s my sidecar.
Riding with Emma
In the gray light of early morning, Kristen pushes her bike out of the garage, steps on, and begins pedaling. Emma (her tail-wagging sidekick) runs alongside as they exit the alleyway onto the road. Then, Kristen says, “Trailer!” and Emma hops in for the ride to work. Read on to learn about Kristen's off-road cargo trailer with suspension that allows her to bring Emma along on her bike rides.
IS IT SAFE TO BACKPACK WITH DOGS?
With the right preparation and planning, you can set you and your dog up for a fun and memorable time in the backcountry. We always recommend checking in with your vet ahead of your trip for any questions you might have specific to your dog's health.
HOW MUCH WEIGHT CAN MY DOG CARRY IN A BACKPACK?
It's best to keep the total carrying weight (including the pack and its contents) under 25% of your dog's body weight. First-time barkpackers may want to go even lighter. And, as always, it's a great idea to check in with your vet.
Example: A 45-pound (20-kg) dog's pack should weigh no more than 11.25 pounds (5 kg) including food, water, gear, and the pack itself.
WHAT DO YOU DO WITH DOG POOP WHILE BACKPACKING?
Leave No Trace are our go-to pros on this topic, and they recommend that dog waste be packed out in poop bags. Regulations might differ depending on the wilderness area you are in. Check their website or call in and speak with a ranger before heading out.
