Biking With Small Dogs
 
A friend of mine has three larger dogs that she allows to run along side the bike with her, and she also has a Chihuahua/Jack Russell mix that she would like to get started with as well. He is a pretty high energy little dog, and is about 6lbs. I wanted to know if anyone has any experience with biking with little dogs, and did you have to take any special precautions due to size? She is mainly worried about the activity being too strenuous for a little dog. She will of course start of slow like she did with the other dogs.

I used to bike with my 9lb rat terrier mix - she loved it. I just didn't go as fast because she had 3x the ground to cover as my GSD did - And conditioned her to longer runs/ watched her for signs of fatigue. Just common sense stuff. ;)
